  1. Hi there, I was just wondering what someone would sell this item at. It was purchased for $3000.00 CAD (price tag sticker still on frame). I called the shop at AJW Sportscards where it was bought and they said they haven't had stock of anything signed by Stan Lee in a while. Thanks, Ali
  2. EDITED BY THE AUTHOR TO ADD: WARNING - SPECULATION IN THIS THREAD MAY BE INCORRECT! Thought some folks might find this bit of history interesting: A little over one year ago, Bob Dumas passed away after devoting the last 70 years of his life to keeping a promise he made to his parents. The promise was made after Bob and his family learned that Bob’s younger brother Roger had been declared missing in action ("MIA") in Korea as of November 4, 1950, due to a Chinese offensive that encircled Roger's battalion. The battalion broke out of the encirclement, but Roger and many others were unaccounted for after the running battle. Bob told the story of the promise he made many times during his life, perhaps most famously during a U.S. Senate Hearing in 1992: "I made a promise to my mother and father in 1950 that I would never stop looking for him until I brought him home dead or alive." Bob's promise made sense. At that time, being MIA often meant being a POW. Communication between the North Koreans and Chinese forces, on the one hand, and the United Nations forces, on the other, regarding POWs was spartan as the Chinese did not commit to the Geneva Convention until July 17, 1952. Thus, it was reasonable for Bob and his parents to believe that Roger might have been captured. Bob kept his promise to his parents by volunteering for front line duty in Korea so he could look for Roger in whatever free time he might have. An obituary states that Bob served two tours of duty and earned three Bronze stars while on the front lines. But Bob didn’t find Roger before the U.S., in line with newly elected President Eisenhower's campaign promise to end the Korean War, entered into the Korean armistice in 1953. Roger also wasn’t one of the prisoners of war (“POWs”) returned to the U.S. by the North Koreans and Chinese in August 1953. Instead, Roger was presumed dead as of February 26, 1954, as a result of a decision made by the Eisenhower Administration to declare all POW/MIAs who had not been returned or otherwise accounted for as "deceased." Still, Bob and his family did not give up hope that Roger was alive, instead they continued to believe Roger had been taken as a prisoner of war and could be brought home. Bob and Roger's father died in 1955. In 1959, six years after the Korean War had purportedly ended, Bob reaffirmed his promise to his mother as she lay on her death bed. As Bob relayed in one of his many media interviews regarding Roger, "I walked in front of her bed, and she thought I was Roger. I said 'No, I'm Bob.' She said, 'I thought it was Roger. I know he's alive. Promise me you'll always look for him.' I promised." Because Bob knew in his heart that Roger was alive, he never did stop looking for him. Roger's remains have never been found. In his search for Roger, Bob became a tireless advocate for Korean POW/MIAs. Bob made many trips to D.C. to meet with government officials, Congressmen, Senators, and at least one President (Reagan) to discuss Roger and POW/MIA issues. Bob testified multiple times to Congress, appeared in many media reports, and was the subject of documentaries. Bob even met with North Korean ambassadors. Later events would prove that Bob's hope concerning Roger was justified. Ultimately, Bob developed conclusive evidence that Roger had not been killed in action when he was declared MIA but had been captured and placed in a POW camp. Bob kept the promise to his parents to never give up looking for Roger until the day he died. Bob's dedication ultimately made Roger a symbol of America's abandonment of POWs held by North Korea after the Korean Armistice in 1953. It also caused Bob to become a leading activist on behalf of families seeking government action to obtain the return of POW/MIAs, and it put Bob in conflict with the highest echelons of the U.S. government – a conflict in which Bob won a significant court battle in 1983 which resulted in the re-classification of Roger from MIA to POW and the recognition that Roger was entitled to a POW medal. As a result, Roger, whose name is inscribed on the Courts of the Missing at the Honolulu Memorial, is a recipient of the Purple Heart, POW Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal, United Nations Service Medal, Republic of Korea War Services Medal, Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation, and the Combat Infantryman Badge. Roger was also elevated at some point from Private First Class to Corporal. That POW Medal was especially significant to Bob. Bob testified in Congress that, even though the government presented it as a posthumous honor to Roger's family, Bob viewed the medal as Roger's property, not Bob's. Bob viewed himself as just a custodian of that medal until the day Roger would return and Bob could pin it on him. Bob spoke often about the promise he made to his parents and the media took notice. From the 1970s until Bob’s death, numerous articles referencing Bob’s promise to his parents to find Roger appeared in newspapers, national publications like Newsweek, and internet sites. When Bob died, tributes emphasized that Bob never gave up. Bob and Roger deserve honor and recognition for their heroism at war and for Bob's heroism in untiring activism in support of Roger and other POW/MIAs. Does this story have anything to do with comic books? Maybe or maybe not. Through many many hours of research, I have found no mention of Bob and Roger and comic books. Bob and Roger may have nothing to do with the Promise Collection. Only Heritage, who possesses and is marketing all of the books, can answer that question. However, it is notable that Bob's full name is Robert Dumas, and Heritage disclosed that the surviving brother holding custody of the Promise Collection was named "Robert." Here are some interesting media references to Bob using his full name of "Robert:" And it is also notable that Roger (the most junior of seven children) has the middle name "Armand," a name that appears on select copies of Promise Collection books that hit the stands between June and August of 1949: BUT the overlap in names and that a central fact of the story of Robert ("Bob") and Roger Armand Dumas is a promise are NOT proof they are the "Robert" and younger brother "known as Junie" (usually used as a short form of "Junior") at the heart of the story that Heritage has told to market the "Promise" Collection. Honestly, I cannot reconcile a number of the facts relayed by Heritage in marketing the Promise Collection with the facts I have uncovered about Bob and Roger, including details regarding enlistment, date of the OO's death, etc. So, there may be no connection at all. But the story of Bob and Roger is fascinating history that deserves to be remembered. I hope you'll forgive me for telling it if it has no tie to comic books. On the other hand, it may be that most of the discrepancies in the two stories are immaterial, perhaps just a harmless “fudging of the facts" by Heritage intended to serve as misdirection. I have more info to share that would tend to support a tie between the story I just told and the Promise Collection. For example, the story of Bob's search for Roger may well explain why the comics were bagged, boarded, and boxed some 20 years or so ago, but not sold, in way that is far better than the explanation afforded by the marketing story told by Heritage of the Promise Collection. The story of Bob and Roger might also explain why only three months of Promise Collection books say "Armand" on the cover. And other information does point to Bob and Roger as being “Robert” and “Junie,” albeit not conclusively. If there is interest, I'll share additional information and my opinions. Let's face it, the comic collecting community, especially folks who have bought Promise Collection books, deserve to know the story on the collection. Especially if a story as significant as Bob and Roger's is the backstory on the Promise Collection. If so, the comics have a historic and symbolic value that is greater than that disclosed by the marketing story told by Heritage. If the Promise Collection were Roger's comics, preserved by Bob to return to Roger once he was found and brought home, in fulfillment of Bob's promise to his parents, then there could be no better name for such a collection than the "Promise Collection." But let's be clear, the comics would just be a footnote to Bob and Roger's stories. They will be remembered for their historical significance and heroism, not for a comic book collection - except by us collectors who will cherish our connection to their history ... if it exists. I believe it is time for Heritage to weigh in. At the very least, in order to avoid any confusion Heritage should, if truthful, flatly deny that the Dumas brothers are the brothers who compiled and saved the Promise Collection.
  3. Hi all, I saw this and thought its so interesting. The oppurtunity to have ownership into the Amazing Fantasy 15 GCG 7.0. Where any average joe can buy fractional ownership of this comic, kind of like robinhood. Its through this site called www.hipcomic.com. Do you guys think there is potential interest in this? www.hipcomic.com/invest
  4. This inventory of rare The Walking Dead (TWD) comics was researched by a group of its collectors including @StephenWA, @Sensei Ryan and @BladeTX. While TWD comic #163 had a print run of over 730,000 comics, there were ten issues produced with fewer than 250 copies. This list identifies those ten comics as well as the other rare issues which include the TWD S cript Book and #2 First Printing which were the lowest-selling of the original issues. The inventory does NOT include rarities from The Walking Dead Deluxe (TWDD) series, issued from October 2020. That series also includes several "less than 250" editions, including TWDD #1 Second Printing Gold Foil edition (212) and Second Printing Red Foil edition (240) both produced for the Skybound Comic Vault Live events held on Facebook.

  10. Hi everybody! My partner and I've have just launched this Kickstarter campaign about republishing three comics of the renowned French artist, Pierre Wininger (1950-2013). The story is about a reporter, Victor Billetdoux, who by the help of his friend, investigates a strange incident in the Egyptian dessert... This spurs up everything and the two of them are soon intertwined in a deeper conspiracy involving strange shadowlike men, mad scientists, occult Egyptian mysticism and cunning people in search of a secret weapon. The story is great and it will all be featured in a hardcover volume book with English translations (the comics has only been published in France and Europe before). So I hope You will check it out! And please comment with Your thoughts e.g. or any questions you might have :-) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1081152552/the-victor-billetdoux-trilogy-comic-by-pierre-wini?ref=discovery_category_newestThanks! Thanks! Lea :-) Copenhagen, Denmark
