  1. I found Walt’s ‘Undervalued Spotlight’ column to be very influential; firstly it highlighted books that were outside of my immediate field of view, and secondly, it made me consider why certain books are collectable – that holistic approach to looking at books has certainly helped keep me focused during the past 2 years of booming prices – when you upderstand what the fundamentals are then you can see the books that are a mirage and their values are a temporary illusion.

    Whilst I don’t celebrate Thanks-giving down here, on this day I’d like to give thanks to Walt – his Herculean effort of nearly 500 comic issues formally dissected and providing many hours of entertainment and education to us all! Thank you WD!

  2. Golly gee Spider, thanks. That was a good run and I too learned a lot during the process. I’ve been wanting to resurect that in a different, more casual form but can’t seem to get the mechanism down.
