Great comic (and Netflix series!) With Season 2 around the corner, DD and it's other characters like Punisher, Elektra and Kingpin are up -- it's selling season! cheers

Here's a link to my Marvel limelight thread from a few months ago -- http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t8122-my-other-collections


Speaking of season 2 and the Punisher...


One of my favorite covers! Can't waaaaaaaiiiiiitttttt to see him on DD Season 2. Especially bc of the actor they chose.

I wonder if they're introduce Bullseye by season's end? I mean, Elektra is going to be in it so that would make for a KILLER season 3 lol!

I should jump on a few issues of #131 then...

I'm excited too! I think Jon Bernthal will live up to the hype.

Another one of my favorites. Love the character, love the comic. I hope you enjoyed the film if you've seen it.

I loved the movie. I expected great things, and it delivered.

Here is one more before I put the baby to bed. A DC key that is hard to find in Off white or better. One of my favorites.

Very cool. I'm not about DC much, but I know of it's comic history and major keys..and that is a great piece.

I also see statues in the background! :Drool:

Besides comics, and Vintage Star Wars, I also collect Hot Toys. The comic is covering up my Hot Toys Han and Chewie and Luke Stormtrooper.

Some sweet issues being shared. Thanks Johnny for sharing. Is the groot, iron man, and what I think is starlord also hot toys? I want hot toys but they would seriously eat into my budget. I went after the first appearance of Ian man but he kept eluding me. Also wish I had hulk 1 and fantastic four 1 but they were to much for me. Had a chance at the ff1 once but like an idiot purchased some other stuff instead. Batman has always been my favorite though so I am more into dc.

This is going to be one of my favorite threads on here now I think.

I have a few like old BSG stuff like that buried in a box, my wife on the other hand has one pretty good sized archie comic collection.

I completely skipped over this comment. I never was into battle star but Archie stuff I loved. I only had a few comic size ones, but they used to sell Archie digest (which is like book sized stuff) in the grocery stores when I was a kid. I had quite a few of those for a while. Loved reading the Archie stuff.

Hulk #1 may be the hardest to get now out of all of the #1's.. especially in worthwhile condition. I mean, it would be cool to own any of the silver holy grails in any condition though!

Hot Toys get expensive and the statue market is rough. Not an easy sell compared to comic books..at least at mom and pop comic shops. Luckily payment plans are an option and make things manageable.

I had a day off yesterday and went to a couple of different stores along the coast. I picked this up for cheap because I've always loved the cover!

What's not to like? 1st Venom cover!

These are amazing likenesses, by I just can't afford hot toys stuff much. I might eventually get a random piece but I doubt it with a price point of two hundred plus per item, they are out of my range. Sad

These really are amazing to look at though. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much for the kind words. Yes, they are expensive for sure. My wife is never happy when she sees how much they are.


I received my last book tonight. After this I'm going to focus on finishing my Hot Toys preorders and then jump back into collecting Vintage Star Wars. My first real love. cheers



60+ years old. Very Happy

Great statues. I've done pre-orders before and there's nothing worse than a statue being pushed back a couple months. Damn the anticipation!!! Evil or Very Mad

I was going to get the Fett after seeing it in a store, but instead I may be getting a Punisher. Haven't decided because it's really similar to the Deadpool I have.. may just wait entirely.

Another awesome comic. Is your entire collection CGC? Did you used to own raw and then upgraded them through the years?

I've been collecting Marvel for 8 years now and I'm addicted to the buy/sell/trade market. lol!

The only comics I won't sell are the ones I've received as gifts/ my Dad gave to me. Especially Iron Man #1 signed by Stan Lee. That was the one to activate every collecting bone in my body.

Thanks again for sharing.
