I just bought all the #1 issues and put them in a safe place so 100 years from now my ancestors can sell them and make money off of them.

Yeah.... Your ancestors might be able to buy a couple of nice lunches with them, but I doubt these #1's are going to be huge collectors items down the road, at least not of any noteworthy amount. Go to a comic book store today and even the most popular back-issues will only go for a few hundred dollars.

I wouldn't expect these books to fetch that high price down the road and probably be like most back-issues of comics which usually only flirt with a couple dozen dollars.

Ditto. Kirby I hope you were intrigued enough to search out the other current issues of All-Star Western. Really great read and it looks like he'll be hitting the road at issue #6 or 7 for New Orleans.

Did you just now buy them? Unless the store was holding them for you for the past 5 months, chances are you have mostly second or third printings. For the collector wanting to make a buck, it is first printing or bust.

That being said, these first printings are never going to be worth much at all (if anything) to begin with.

Yeah. That was foolish. How many other thousands of copies are there? AND, as someone pointed out, you might have bought a 2nd or 3rd printing.

It's good that you're making plans for your ancestors in case they are raised from the dead in some sort of zombie apocalypse. It happens, everybody. Plan for their futures.

I think I actually had a dream that involved Jonah Hex last night. Which is really strange, because I have never read a comic with Jonah Hex in it, did not see the Jonah Hex movie, never cared about Jonah Hex in any particular fashion, and don't even really like the western as a genre.

Apparently my unconscious mind disagrees.

(Flash forward to 100 years from now...)

Kid says, "What are these, Dad?"

Dad says, "I believe people used those to clean up in the bathroom; they didn't use the three shells like we do."

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

I just read the first few issues of Swamp Thing, Animal Man, two of the Batmen titles (Detective and Dark Knight), Hawkman and I read the first issue of Action Comics.

I thought this new 52 thing was supposed to make things simpler and streamline everything, starting new and fresh?

To me, it seems even more convoluted, keeping SOME of the history (most of which I'm not too familiar with for some of these anyways) and alluding to that without really explaining anything. For Animal Man, it's not too bad, things are easy enough to piece together, but Swamp Things feels overly complicated by it.

I'm going to keep reading, I'm finding the story overall interesting, but it would have been just as well to just say "new creative team, new direction" #1 (basically, and I don't like comparing the two, but a Marvel-style reboot) with it than to try and overly complicate it with this gimmicky mess (I say mess only from a creative stand-point, the marketing was obviously done really and well and helped the industry as a whole quite a bit!)

And I'm not caring for Action at all, so I dropped that pretty fast. Was undecided on Hawkman, but with Liefeld taking over, that makes dropping that one so much easier.

Oddly, the title I enjoy the most is one I read a lot of the complaints about, Batman: The Dark Knight. It seems to not worry about history, to be just doing its own thing and having fun with it, plus I admit to having a bias towards Finch stuff (he's local).

Unbelievable.

I dig it. I mean, I'm not gonna be picking up a Tony Daniel book anytime soon, but Action Comics is only okay.

Mostly how I feel. Action has picked up more in it's last two issues (of the main arc, that is) but I much more enjoy Superman's self-titled book.

Yeah, I am going to pick up the rest of All-Star Western for sure, it's the most intriguing of the new 52 for me right now.
I'm dropping Green Arrow, Dark Night and possibly Aquaman.

It's possible that LGM was being sarcastic or joking guys. So far I haven't come across any serious fan that has bought the New 52 1's for collecting purposes.
