    So is it racist to say Bond should never be anything but white?

    Of course, it could be a mini-series or a Netflix movie about the Escobar manhunt to finish it off. Movie would be great.
    Pedro Pascal really needs his own series, because he is an extremely powerful figure on-screen in everything I've seen him in.

    Ya, I took all the cgc stuff they had. I'm just wondering why he sold such a large collection, because there were hundreds of comics in the longbox, and a lot of valuable stuff.

    Because the narco story dpesn't begin or end with Escobar, he was just a huge catalyst. I would think they'll cover the fallout of his death.

    he was phoning it in since his third book, and his Ayn Rand bullshit is annoying as fuck. I'd just heard this was much better.

    Confessor- Terry Goodkind. Just started it last night, good so far. I had heard it was his best work, which I hope is true, because from the third Richard/kahlan book, it started to read like a template, I love the characters, but it was literally 10 books of them being together, the pair is force-ably split up, Richard saves the kahlan and the world, against impossible odds it was like one really huge run-on sentence that would not end.......
    I hope this is better. I've been told it is.

    Its the Doom series I'm most excited about.  They aren't worth much, but they are all alt-covers, and I absolutely love Dr. Doom. I think he's Marvels best villain by far, maybe the best villain in comics. It's sad that he hasn't been used correctly on screen, ever. Tranks vomit inducing version certainly looked good, but that only looked like Dr. Doom. Some fool pretending to be a genius villain, badly. So badly.
    and ASM300, but thats more novelty than love.

    CBS better have a fucking series on for fall 2016! It would be blasphemous not to have a new Trek for the 50th. And not fucking movie trek, either.

    @wild Oh, I'm looking forward to Axanar much more than I was ever looking forward to this. I don't think there can be any comparison between the two. Just that Axanar isn't out yet
     
    Is there a release window for axanar? I funded that bitch, but haven't paid attention since.

    Nice pull of some mid-00's comics and New 52 back issues.
    Stopped at a used book store this morning, and this one also sells used comics. Letta, the owner, literally sits aside whatever new comics come through for me too look at first, since I am by far her best customer (very literally).  The prices here are before taking off my store credit, which I can use for up to 50% off. Like most used book stores, that's how they make money, by taking stuff on trade, and allowing only a percentage of that credit to be used to buy other books. 
    I was able to grab a bunch of New 52 back issues I was missing, a bunch of Superman/Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Sinsestro, some Teen Titans, and the first 5 New 52 Wonder Woman issues, and all of the N52 Harley Quinn series, all bagged, boarded, and in excellent shape. About ~60 in all @2$/each. 
    But the real haul was a bunch of CGC graded comics from Near Mint to Mint. I'm a little puzzled why he chose to have these ones CGC'd, because the value isn't that high, but I got a 9.8 Countdown to Infinite Crisis (first print, because second print was 2$ instead of 1$, and Blue Beatle was shaded out on the 1st), all seven issues of Infinite Crisis, graded from 9.4 to 9.8, The complete All-Star Superman by Morrison, all graded 9.2+. I paid 30$ for Infinite Crisis and 40$ for Superman. 
    These are all very cool, and they have a forever place in my library, but the other mini-series I was able to pick up, also graded, was Marvels Books of Doom Volume 1, with the textless alt covers, all six of them near mint for 30$. 
    None of them are worth a fortune, but they are all comics very dear to me. 
    I took the Doom comics in to be framed by a local place that has done others for me. Each of them has a very nice painting of Dr. Doom. They will receive a place of honor in Superhero Lane (the part of my Library dedicated to comics and comic memorabilia) probably near my 1st edition DKR on the wall. 
    She also had another surprise for me, which she put away for me until I have the cash for it, a CGC9.2 Amazing Spiderman #300. I love this woman. I have an ASM#300, but it might be a 5-5.5, and I have two of the later, and more Valuable ASM#300 Chromium Editions, but I've never been able to get the original in near-mint for less than astronomical prices. This one is gonna cost me 275$. 
    I dunno who unloaded all this stuff, because I know most of the comic collectors in town, but I am glad he did. 
    I just hope its not a teen who left for college this week and whose mother decided to 'clean' out his room.
