    Hope you all had a great Christmas. I haven’t been getting any comics in a while. But I did get a nice set of Superman Secret Identity #1-4. I heard it was a good story line. Haven’t read it yet. Also on a sad note, one of my LCS is closing down. They have a nice sale going on but after 10 years in the market, she decided to close. On the deals, I got Darth Vader #3 For $5, Danger Girl from image for $1, Realm #2&3 for $1 each, Apocalyptic girl by #1 writer El Torres for $1. I am going back sometime next week after the year since she will have the doors open till the end of January. Well hope you all have a great NEW YEAR!!

    Slow week at work due to holidays so using the time to get caught up on organizing and cataloging the collection. Been procrastinating on this for many, many, many months. Not much excitement at the LCS today so just picked up more long boxes and other supplies. Half way through this daunting project, but will be so happy to have it done.

    • Anthony says:

      I need to start tracking my books again in comicbookrealm.com

      • Jesus says:

        I just finished organizing my books. I now need to put them in a spread and have them on file. I sold a book on eBay and couldn’t remember what box I had it in. I took out my trusty notebook and BAM! Just like that I found it lol.

      • Brennan says:

        I use the league of comic geeks app. Ots got my pulls set up and you can scan upc codes to add to collection.

      • Anthony says:

        What’s the cost on that

        FREE

        buuuut don’t know if I can export my database for safekeeping. There’s a pretty good chance that if they go my records go with them…. I should check their website.

    Was it just me or was Hawkman Found waaaay too similar to Batman Lost?

    Merry Christmas, fellow CHU readers. It was a slow day for me as only 1.5 stores, out of the 5 I usually visit, had any new Comics to sell. I did take advantage of some back issue sales though. Picked up a bunch of filler issues for my ASM run along with some Batman books from the Hush storyline, some Detective Black Mirror books (Jock Covers!) and a couple issues from V for Vendetta (I’m building an Alan Moore section for my PC).

  9. Alana says:

    Got a 1989 Talking Freddy Krueger Doll in the box highlight of my week!

    • David Billadeau says:

      Is that the FX talking Freddy?

      • Clark says:

        Do you have a opinion on this you have choice rick and Morty pocket like you stole it ultra rare variant or edge of spider verse greg land variant I sold already for 2,400. Which would you pick for long term pick up

      • Anthony says:

        Rick and Morty is hot and will see some growth. Marvel has big plans for Spider Gwen in comics and in outside media. They just trade marked Ghost Spider as they are moving away from the Spider Gwen moniker. Long term the Edge of Spiderverse could be the better.

      • Clark says:

        Thanks so much for your opinion. I’ve been wracking my head trying to figure out which direction to go. While ago I bought two of the edge of spider verse land variants and both came back at 9.8 and one sold for 2400.

        Last question for today . Any thoughts on Whitman DC or marvel variants? Been reading a lot about them lately . You’re the man Anthony. Thanks again

      • Anthony says:

        Whitman variants are neat. We used to avoid them like the plague when we were younger but putting together a set is now a cool concept.

      • Clark says:

        Yea I started doing a bunch of research and getting into some older Disney stuff with their buy out of fox and seeing as how they should own all media someday and came across a few interesting articles on Whitman variants and how some are more rare than the 35 cent variants out there

      • David Billadeau says:

        Your right! When I was growing up in the mid to late seventies/early eighties I avoided the Whitman variants like crazy! I thought they were a cheap copy of the real deal!

  11. Clark says:

    question… any thoughts on Rick and forty pocket like you stole it nerd block variant?

  12. A. King says:

    No in store pickups for me yesterday. Just a few online ones. One of my shop’s is closing on the 31st so I’m going to go by and see if I can get anything good. It’s a great shop I’ll miss them.

  13. Stanley says:

    During boxing week, purchase of 70 mint DC and Marvel comics for $7.00 from hobby store that can afford to sell new comics at a financial loss in semi-annual sales.

    • Anthony says:

      Man. 10 cents each. Webuycomics.com will buy them at a minimum of .25 cents each. Need to offset shipping but you could sell them all day. Lol. Seriously, I stock up on sales like that.
