  1. Hi all. I'm going to be sending some comics through the post, and I'd like a little help making sure they arrive in good shape. Is there a post or thread showing how to package slabs for shipping? All I saw was one that was dealing with non-graded books. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  2. In your opinion, how long should I wait before I send the artwork out? Is there an average time it takes to have his bank pay mine? I'm going to ask when I deposit it, but now I'm a little worried. It's not an amount I can easily repay.
  3. I'm getting a cheque. That should be ok, shouldn't it? He's been on CAF for about a year. That's the person! This has put my mind at ease. Thanks!
  4. Hi all! I've just been offered a decent amount for my commissioned artwork on Comic Art Fans. He's in Cudahy, WI. A. Williams. I'm not getting any bad vibes from the buyer but I want to be sure it's above board.
  5. "Sick". I hate seeing that in threads... "Dude, that book is SICK!" Get it some meds, then. >.< Sorry, grumpy old man who can't get wit da yoof.
  6. My ex's name is Nicola. I hate Nicola. I kid. I hate the ex, not all people named Nicola.
  7. I can't draw to save my life, so that'd be out. As for the comics, I've had no passion for them for years. They do nothing for me, and I really think they'd be better off with someone who wants them. They're sitting in the box I sent them back to Canada inside. I haven't looked at them for more than 2 years, so I think I wouldn't miss them. The only problem is trying to sell them off. No one in Calgary seems to be buying and I'm not sure even my uncle's flea market stall will take them.
  8. I think the best way I can help and get to feeling better is to buy KyoAni stuff. To that end I will take all my graphic novels and collectibles to my uncle's flea market stall and let him sell them for me, and use the money to buy as much anime and manga as I can. At least then I'll feel like I'm DOING something. Something constructive.
  9. I think it's too soon for me to think about. I'm still in shock, I guess. I can't see the philosophical side yet. I'm not religious, but I know energy is neither created or destroyed. I just hope that the energy these wonderful people had is somewhere good.
  10. I don't even know if I can. The one thing that gave me a little joy is forever linked to some scumbag taking 33 innocent lives. People I will never meet who gave me hope. People who will never see their families again. It's an open wound. Sorry, I'm being quite maudlin about it. But, nothing I have collected has given me anything near this level of happiness. Comics didn't do it. Hockey cards didn't, game used hockey sticks didn't. I can't watch K-On! or Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid or Violet Evergarden again. I can't re-read the manga. Maybe later, much later, but not now. Hollow feeling. Like I'm empty of happiness, and there's nothing left to replace it. Sorry Kav, feel free to ignore me. I'm just down and I don't know how to get back up.
  11. Kick in the stomach. I felt sick when I saw it. I suffer from severe depression, and had a 16 year relationship end two years ago. Two suicide attempts. Then I saw the anime "K-On!", and it made me feel just a little bit better. Some of their work made me cry (A Silent Voice, K-On! episode 24, Violet Evergarden episode 10), but most gave me such indescribable joy. I am still crying about it off and on. I feel so helpless. I want to help KyoAni buy I live on welfare. I can't afford to but manga and Blu-Rays even though I very much want to. I just want to do SOMETHING. Who would have thought my 600th post would be this? I wanted to spend it with something silly, like saying "600th post and all I want is a Moon Knight #1! KIDDING!"...but this is what I get. I'm sorry to be so down about this. It's hit harder than I thought it would. So much evil in the world. :'(
  12. Hi all. I'm still in a bit of shock. The anime and manga producers Kyoto Animation were hit by an arson attack today. 33 people died. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-49027178 KyoAni have produced some anime and manga that has gotten me through some very dark times for me. I am stunned by this. My heart goes out to the families of the deceased and I hope the injured recover quickly and fully. I can't believe it. They make things that make people happy, give joy to the world, and some insect has to destroy it. If this isn't the appropriate place for this, mods, please move it to the right place. James *EDIT* To show how much the company means to me, my avatar is of Tsmugi Kotobuki, from the anime "K-On", a KyoAni show.
  13. You just made me spit water all over my keyboard... And to answer OP's question, just offer what you think is fair and pay no attention if the dealer flips out about it.
  14. Try using UPS. I'd never sent anything via courier before so I went to the UPS store near my house to send some game used hockey jerseys to be sold through an auction house. I had no idea how to fill in the papers, and there was a huge line behind me, so I said I'd take them away and come back. No no no the guy says, I'll do it for you, you just sign the slip. Great! No. He valued my nobody Calgary Flames jerseys at $4000 USD each, when they were 'worth', at most $200 USD each. I had no idea, I'd never sent via courier before! Fast forward a week and a bit and the auction house emails me: There's a $600 USD customs charge on the package. WTF? So, I called UPS and explained what happened. Tough. You signed it. Too bad. So, the jerseys sold for $500 USD and I still have to pay another $100 on top of it to clear the debt. Thanks UPS! I'd rather eat my own face than use those unsympathetic, hypocritical scumbags again. It'd have been cheaper for me to fly the jerseys out to the auction house myself!
  15. I walked forty-seven miles of barbed wire, I got a cobra snake for a necktieA brand new house on the road side, and it's a-made out of rattlesnake hideGot a band new chimney put on top, and it's a-made out of human skullCome on take a little walk with me baby, and tell me who do you love?Who do you love? ... Otherwise, I got nothin'.
  16. Read this. https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/jordan-stjohn-/let-me-break-down-what-canadas-escalating-beer-tax-will-really-cost-you_a_23340121/ From the article: "Here's the other thing: All of the variation in excise tax between provinces? Completely irrelevant. Beer Canada came up with a number that doesn't matter. A "47 per cent beer tax" is not only not applicable in any specific provincial market, it doesn't matter at all. The excise tax being talked about is federal, and it is identical across every province and territory in Canada. ... Essentially, what you need to know is that in order for this compounding increase to put the price of beer up a dollar a case, it will need to run until April 1, 2040. You're reading that right. People as yet unborn will be of drinking age before this costs you a dollar a case." And as for the OP's post - what is the purpose of posting something so deliberately provocative? Some people cheat the system. That is independent of nationality. I for one, have never had a problem on eBay with another Canadian. Recently I have had several CDs go missing from sellers from China. Does that mean all Chinese sellers are trying to rip people off? No, of course not. You had a bad run. That's eBay, not Canada. And, as a fellow Canadian, I'm disappointed that you felt the need to make this thread to dump on us.
  17. I stopped collecting when I realized I was buying books and not even opening them up. I stopped reading them, and that's when I knew my passion for comics was dead. I have a big box of TPBs I'll never read again and can't sell off, and it upsets me greatly. They cost me a lot, and I can't justify throwing them away or giving them away for nothing. I'm not really even sure why I still look a the boards, to be honest. Habit, I guess.
  18. I think I'll just skip ahead and put you on ignore.
  19. The bird's there to have at least one thing in the pic screaming for no discernible reason.
