"He lived an amazing life, even as a boy - evading the Nazis in Italy during WWII and then coming to America, where he thought the streets were literally paved with gold. Sure, it was a different era, but Philip is right - accomplishments like…"
"I've changed my mind after reading the Hollywood Reporter article Clark linked to. Stan's daughter J.C. appears to be a terrible, loathsome person. 68 years old this month and has never had a real job. Runs up between…"
"Interesting. I'll have to look for that and see for myself.
Personally I'm quite happy having Batman (for example) in some archives, some Chronicles and now the Omnibus. There's some overlap, but not enough I have to look to get rid…"
"I'm getting Avengers Epic Collection: The Avengers/Defenders War despite already having it in an earlier tpb AND in both the Essential Avengers and Essential Defenders volumes. It has so much more in it: a lengthy…"
"“I hope somebody knows a market for all these books!”
I, for one, do not. I have taken them to my LCS and sometimes I get a good price for them, other times I do not, depending on demand. I initially decided to pick up the omnibus run of…"

"On Perez, I mostly stopped reading monthly comics by the late 70s early 80s, so I might have missed his prime time.
On selling old archives, this is one reason why I've not been in a rush to get the Omnibus books (see earlier postings for other…"
I may be out of line here but in regards with your exchange with Mark, we both know how he feels about Marvel now. We've both know that his opinion has not and probably will not change though I hope it does. Despite previous advice, I have no doubt that he will continue to comment on how "evil" the Marvel heroes are whenever he can.
However, he has had some medical problems and he has left here before thinking no one wants him here. That's something that I am hoping to avoid. I'm not blaming you for ANYTHING, let me make that clear. I am only trying to prevent another round of the same debate that apparently caused hard feelings before.
You won't change his mind and challenging him about it will only make him defensive, as past interactions show us. If steered clear from the topic of Marvel's Post-Civil War period, he seems happier.
Anyway, that's my two cents. Again I'm not faulting you at all. Merely trying to keep the peace, as they say.
