  1. Late 60s an 70s. Good runs here and there in the 80s. Independent titles have done well mostly afterwards. I like mainstream stories here and there.
  2. I've been out of comics for about just as long. Virtually everything has gone up in price. Comics especially. It's going to be an interesting 2 years. Comics appear to be a great place to store your money for a while.
  3. If I had to pick Batman followed by Daredevil. Then ASM up to the end of the McFarlane run.
  4. Well all the dealers and auction houses take cards.. If you insist on Paypal, then I am SOL, but I feel better having left them.
  5. What happened there? My guess is some terms of service BS.
  6. I would say Email money transfer, Credit Card transactions, and in the long term digital currency will take over.
  7. I had enough of the payment system. Their support service went downhill. I went out of may way to not use it. They snuck in a $20 inactivity fee in Canada. That was the last straw for me. I hope others move away from PayPal to another service.
  8. my DD 1 makes me wonder as well.
  9. The market is on fire. I was only away from buying for maybe like 1/2 a year.
  10. nice books though. I can't believe how much prices have spiked.
  11. On the bright side, you can go all in one a book as an investment, enjoy it for a while, and sell it later for a profit. You would have owned history for a little while. At these prices a lot of us our in the same boat.
  12. I am going to ask the OP’s question again. Anyone open a shop for collectibles or anything else? If so, what are your experiences?
  13. So many places are going online that eBay is asking for trouble. I'm already not happy about using PayPal anymore.
  14. Well as I said... I think I hold the record. My package that was sent from the USA on Sept 4 2020 arrived yesterday Jan 12 2021 after being sent first to Australia, and then here to Canada. This is a badge I hope not to hold for a long time. This is a first for me in almost 15 yrs of ordering online and receiving packages.
  15. I believe this may be the case. Canada Post will let you buy up to about $1000 insurance. Fedex limits are higher. I learnt a few things about USPS during this experience.
  16. You'll get this answer from other people as well. It's never acceptable in my opinion.
  17. I think my story beats everyone else's. I ordered a book that was sent from the US back in early Sept through USPS. It accidently got sent to Australia. It got redirected back to Canada in early Dec. It landed in BC today, and it still needs to travel to Ontario. Oh, and it's not an inexpensive book I haven't purchased a single book since this all went down. Sorry to miss the Christmas exchange this year. I'm sure it all turned out well for everyone. With the lockdown and my new home I had plenty to keep me busy.
  18. I’ve had an attempted transfer once which was reversed by PayPal. Took a while and nothing happened again after changing my password. PayPal has become increasingly harder to reach and use. I prefer not to use them anymore.
  19. I will concur that a lot of markets (as well as comics) are actually becoming seller markets during the pandemic. It might seem counter-intuitive but it seems to be the case.
  20. Penguin I think from the quantity of stories, more so in the early half of the series.
  21. Digital currencies offer a different payment method. If you work with a buyer/seller you already trust and ship with tracking, there is no need for protection.
  22. He had a great DD run as well. Obituaries are really starting to make me feel older.
