Sunny Days

This week Chris and Walt dare talk about what things might look like as the world looks to ease out of this pandemic. What will the new world mean for comic shops, for cons, for collectors?

Please let us know what you thought of the show.

Are you ready to rush back into your comic book shop, into your local con?

  1. Walter’s question: Chris, when’s the con coming back?

    Chris’s correct answer should have been: about 15 minutes ago when you tried to sell me the Smurfs!!!

  2. I have a friend who lives to go to NYC Con but will pass this year as he is afraid to go into the Javits Center as it was used as a Covid triage location. Our local show does not seem to be happening either so really not sure about cons. I on the other hand am ready to make the 45 minute run to either of the stores I like soon to see whats in stock. As for the industry long haul… I personally am going to sit tight and see… I am one of those old collectors you guys often refer to. I’ll continue to try and get what I want and wait to sell at a later date. Good show as always and your getting a lot if mileage from those topless pizzas!

  3. Gerald, what’s on your want list mate? What are you enjoying at the moment?

  4. Mostly Golden Age Spider! Big Shot, Air Boy, M.E. Westerns, Archie, Romance… AND the bigger superhero’s if I can get a price I can afford! I have most of the silver age Marvel accept a few of the really big books.

  5. Nice work Gerald! Some great eras and titles there.

    Regarding the topic: the cons are really interesting, I’m seeing some YouTube videos and IG accounts and it may bring a downward pressure (or easement) of prices on some issues…the kind of comics that have recently bubbled up in price due to the community/population being online and MCU obsessed, suddenly the IG spruiker selling X-Men #205 (Wolverine, Barry Windsor Smith) for $15 looks a little crazy when you see a seller prepping their comic con table with 10 issues at $3 each. Reality could hit hard for some when competition increases giving people more avenues to purchase.
