  1. What about Moon Knight Fist of Khonshu #0 is that supposed to be something ?

  2. these books coming out every Wednesday have no investing incentives whatsoever. Do yourself a favour and stop collecting modern books for that purpose. If you enjoy the stories….fine. 6 to 7 dollars a book?? no thanks. Sheep is what keeps the industry alive. Everyone follows everyone. Live and learn I guess.

    1. I collect a lot of comics, I focus on horror comics mostly, but have been stacking Golden Age and Silver age comics for a while. Moderns are fun and a great way for me to pay for the books I collect. Buy what you like, sell what people are buying.
