Are you ironing your NM #98 while you post?

Just look, this comic is going for roughly the same price:

But they are not equal in quality by any measure.

If that's the kind of look your LCS staff gives you, then you are in the wrong comics shop.

My LCS regularly sells more copies of Tiny Titans than many other titles, including Savage Dragon, several DC and Marvel titles, and almost anything from Image except Buffy. It is purchased by married people, single people, parents, non-parents, men, and women.

No-ones done that for any book in this group, for example no-one said "No I don't like Image Reborn, but it's not aimed at me, it's aimed at people who like Liefelds work"


Okay, Johnny One-Note, we get it. You didn;t like this comic, and you don;t like the fact that others might. We get it, all ready.

My LCS only had one extra WDC #701, the comic shop guy thought it was cool it was being reviewed by a group of some kind.

Although Uncle Scrooge looked better.

Chimichanga #1 was the best book last week, you should check it out.

9.6 sure isn't what it used to be. Upper left corner has slight rounding, and the pages are not even on the upper right side, possibly suggesting former spine roll.

I did. It stank. That's not a comment on the quality of the book, but its odor. It was not pleasant, and I had to put it down and go wash my hands.

The cover isn't bad, but the interior pages reeked. And the guy that was buying it when I asked to look at it thought it was smelly, too.

This.

That scan is a perfect example why slabbing/grading is nothing but a total scam.

I wish it had been my idea. :evil:

I don't like the fact so many people are all like "Ok I don't really like this comic... but if I was 6 I'd give this a....."

When no other comic gets that kind of bullshit allowed as the score.

When you read Image United who said "Ok I don't really like this comic, but if I was a Liefield fan"

Or

"I don't really like New Avengers, but if this was my first run on the Avengers I've read"

It's stupid that people are changing thier score based on if others would like it.

I guess maybe because we are able to shift out minds to the fact that this is directed towards a different audience.

By your thought process, everytime I leave a kids movie with my children I should be pounding in their head how horrible the movie was for me since I am way to grown up for the silliness that I just saw. I choose to look at it through my children's eyes and ears, instead.

If there really is a case of comparing apples and oranges, this is it. Mickey Mouse and gang are nothing like Avengers, X-Men or Justice Society. Nor is it comparable to Scalped, Fables, or Preacher.
