  1. Hey guys, sorry to keep mentioning this, Radically Rearranged Ronin Rag Dolls #1 CvrA. Did anyone have copies with pages from the flash back scene misplaced with pages from the beginning of the book? Does something like this pop later on down the road? like many many years down the road? Or is this something that wont ever matter because ppl dont care for the book?

    1. There will always be a niche market for printing error books, but it see any real value unless the book is in demand for some other reason. If the book ever does come into demand, then the error book would be a great copy to own.

  2. Not picking up anything new this week.

    Picked up:
    Some old Poison Elves including a signed Archive Edition 1.
    Some old Eclipse Neil Gaiman Miracleman issues
    Some old issues of Sandman

    Notes:
    This weekend’s comic swap was very slow with few sales. I cleared less at this swap than any other I have been to. I saw at least three vendors leave early after selling everything they had for a paltry amount to another vendor. I had only three sales of note, the rest were $1 books, mostly from sets I broke up last swap. Taking into account the table cost $40 and the original cost of the books, I lost money.

    Next Men 14
    DC Superstars of Magic #11
    CGC 9.6 Flaming Carrot 1

    I did hear that someone bought a Weird Tales 12 (1st Conan) for $1200 at the show.

      1. As I was adding my pc into CLZ, I discovered I had multiple copies of some Alan Moore Swamp Thing issues, so I was able to throw some into my $1 boxes to make someone happy. One of the nice things about keeping track of your collection in a database is that you don’t tend to buy unneeded extra copies.
