i've looked around, but it's hard to compare because you want 1st editions

there's another bid going for 1-11 (not 1st editions) and the seller is asking $5 to ship to the States only

Link

get back to me with the shipping cost, maybe i can help you more
it is 60 bucks for the comics, and 15 bucks for the shipping

ok...would have cost you $47.88 in store...+ tax $6.22...= $54.10

difference in total is $6 (from the 60) and 15 = $21

divide that 21 by 12 and you get $1.75 extra for each individual 1st edition print...not too shabby if you ask me
when you add that the series has been receiving VERY good reviews (which means the cost of each issue should continue to rise) then ya...go for it

just mho of course ^...and that's how i'd break it down if it was me buying

i haven't read the series myself..but will probably pick up the TPBs once they come out

another Great Page...The Amazing Spider-Man #50

Quote:
This image of a rain-soaked Peter Parker walking away from a crumpled Spider-Man suit in a trash can is an arresting one.

Everything seemed to fall apart for Peter in this issue. Between J. Jonah Jameson offering $1000 to the person who could capture Spider-Man to Aunt May’s failing health to Peter’s falling grades, it all was just too much for him to process. In a bid to keep his personal life strong, Peter Parker decided to memorably quit his Spider-Man role.

This page, with the discarded suit in the foreground and a dejected Peter in the middle ground, burned into readers’ minds. The composition by John Romita Sr. is strong. The dialog is held in check, a fact that can’t be said about every Stan Lee page. In all, it’s a brilliant image and one that would be referenced time and again.

‘X-Men: First Class’ Sequel is Called ‘Days of Future Past’

Quote:
In an interview with IGN, producer Bryan Singer announced that the highly anticipated sequel to Fox’s X-Men: First Class is “Days of Future Past.” Singer calls the in-progress script “very ambitious.” Even casual X-Men fans are familiar with the iconic story-line, which involves the modern day Kitty Pryde’s close encounter with a dystopian future in which the already tumultuous relations between humans and mutants have descended into living nightmare territory. These days it’d likely be presented as a six or eight month event, but back in 1981, it was just two issues–#141 and 142–of Claremont and Byrne’s storied run on Uncanny X-Men. Not that the concepts involved haven’t been revisited numerous times in the three decades since, of course.

Singer says the film will touch on aspects of that original story, but also extend into new territory for the X-Men film universe, a world the producer describes as being just as big as the Marvel Universe (being mined over at that other studio).

Now, it’s unclear at this point just how closely this Days of Future Past will mirror the comic iteration, especially given the divergence between the time lines. Might this story feature elements from three different eras, including characters and relationships from the 60s era First Class, the more modern status quo of the original X-Men film trilogy, as well as the not-so-distant future? Will Jackman’s Wolverine play a role? Will Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen reprise their roles as the older versions of Charles Xavier and Magneto respectively?
Ambitious is right.
Matthew Vaughn is set to direct the film, which is scheduled for July of 2014.

another Great Page...Marvel Comics Presents #79

Quote:
In the pages of Marvel Comics Presents, spread out over thirteen issues, Barry Windsor-Smith told the tale of how the man named Logan went from being a normal mutant to having an adamantium skeleton and claws. Called “Weapon X,” this story showed in painful detail how Logan was reduced to his most basic animal urges in order to survive the process.

Barry Windsor-Smith acted as the writer, penciler, inker, and colorist for these stories. The only job he had help with was the lettering. This gave Windsor-Smith total control over the page, as he has in this example. Here, scientists are discussing the latest experiment to which they’re subjecting Logan. But it is Logan’s look here that is the most memorable.

Here, it is the dichotomy of an experiment that provided electronic equipment for data recording but no protection from the elements that unnerves the reader. The VR helmet and battery packs are no help against the snowy environment Logan finds himself in and it provides a stark example of the disregard that some people have for others. This is what helped mold Logan into being the Wolverine.

very interesting news developing...

Marvel Studios Might Extend Daredevil Movie Rights to Fox in Exchange for…Galactus?

Quote:
Forget your wildest brokerage in fantasy football. Forget trading the pretzel rods for the Shark Bites in second grade. Variety’s Showblitz blog is reporting what could be the most unusual and hilariously out-there deals made in the history of bartering (which is literally older than money).

Fox wants to take another crack at a big screen Daredevil movie, but as of right now they only have until October 10th to make that happen. They want Joe Carnahan to do it, but they need time. If they can’t get things underway by October, they relinquish the rights to the property to Marvel Studios.

Marvel Studios is apparently willing to extend Fox’s deadline to produce the thing. But they’re not asking for money. They’re not asking for the world either. They’re asking for a world-eater. Marvel wants Galactus. And the Silver Surfer. Just a few trinkets from the Fantastic Four movie rights bundle that Fox also owns. This is actually a thing people in ties are talking about at a conference table. Galactus is a bargaining chip.



Here we see what Marvel’s priorities are, and it all makes a hell of a lot of sense. Having just announced a Guardians of the Galaxy film in the wake of a Thanos cameo, the studio has set a skyward trajectory, with an increasingly ambitious mission towards something huge. Something Cosmic. If Marvel is prepping to take on the Infinity Gauntlet story line in some form, this deal would be a major boon. They’re choosing their battles wisely, giving up on street level hero to take hold of some larger-than-life characters and avenues befitting the newly announced Phase 2. If this all goes to plan, Phase 3 could be very, very exciting.

Also worth thinking about: If they want Galactus and the Surfer from the FF package, is that all they want? Is there anything else in there worth bartering for?

It’s certainly a chin scratcher.

Joss Whedon to Write and Direct The Avengers 2

Quote:
During Disney's earnings call today, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger announced that Joss Whedon has officially signed on to write and direct The Avengers 2. He also revealed that Whedon will have a hand in the creation of the proposed Marvel TV show for ABC.

It is obviously no surprise that Disney and Marvel Studios wanted Whedon back, as the first film is third on the all-time worldwide box office list with $1.461 billion.

UPDATE: Marvel Studios released the following statement regarding Joss Whedon:

"Joss Whedon has signed an exclusive deal with Marvel Studios for film and television through the end of June 2015. As part of that deal, Whedon will write and direct Marvel's The Avengers 2 as well as help develop a new live action series for Marvel Television at ABC. He will also contribute creatively to the next phase of Marvel’s cinematic universe."

So it definitely sounds like we'll be getting The Avengers 2 in 2015.

a reminder to anyone interested that the Toronto FanExpo is fast approaching...Aug 23-26

here's the link to the website...FanExpo

didn't attend last year but i'm considering going this time around because Stan "The Man" Lee will be there...i have a Sideshow Spider-Man Comiquette that is screaming for his autograph (it would double the value of the statue)...paying $50 (autograph) for a $2000 return is a pretty good deal imho

just don't know if i can stand in line for 4 hrs to get it...would probably go stark raving mad before i got to the front of the line

would have him sign the inside wall so it's out of sight

In Memoriam: Joe Kubert (1926-2012)

Quote:
We are grieved to report that comics legend Joe Kubert has passed away at the age of 85.

We have yet to receive word from DC Comics, but comic creators Dave Gibbons and Richard Bruning have been in contact with representatives of the Kubert family who have confirmed the bad news. Kubert had reportedly been hospitalized for the past few weeks.

Were the comics industry to inherit a mountain in the Dakotas, it wouldn’t be long before we had a team of sculptors up there chiseling away at a giant pair of glasses and a smile just as wide. Joe Kubert didn’t create any Batmen or Spider-Men, but the heroes he committed to those pages and our memories have rarely looked better or bolder. More importantly, he chronicled the lives, glories and tragedies of flesh-and-blood soldiers in countless war comics. His most famous contribution to the DC Comics canon is undoubtedly the intrepid Sgt. Rock. But it was the men who rallied behind that illustrious warrior, the unnamed grunts and self-sacrificers who people his most stirring panels.

Joe Kubert started in comics before hitting high school. He was still working on them in recent months, including the Before Watchmen: Nite Owl limited series with son Andy and the forthcoming Joe Kubert Presents anthology series from DC Comics.

We salute your memory, Joe. And we thank you for your legacy, from the decades of astounding art and storytelling to the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art which heralds even more.

in memory of Joe Kubert ^...another Great Page...Our Army At War #87

Quote:
In 1959, Our Army at War became the home of Sgt. Rock and Easy Company. These comics chronicled the World War II stories of the best sergeant in the DCU. Written by Robert Kanigher with art by Joe Kubert, this issue had Sgt. Rock check into the four men he sent to No-Return Hill to hold the line against incoming Nazis. In the pages of this comic is the story of how these four men gave up their lives to see that no Nazis set foot onto this newly liberated land.

The tension in these pages is palpable. In this page is Sid, a young man who chose the deadliest position in which to face any incoming enemy. From the ache of tense muscles in the page’s beginning to Sid’s frenzy as he attends to find the dropped grenade while temporarily blinded, Kubert’s control is perfect. This page is simply begging to be turned, for the reader to quickly find out Sid’s fate. That makes it great.
