See my Feedbacks page for testimonials, like: "Charles is World Class! All the comics I ordered arrived quickly, were as described if not better and packaged exceptionally well. Charles is very communicative throughout the whole process and replied to any questions had promptly. I will definitely be a repeat customer." - Anthony L, Entry #199
NOTE on CGC graded comics: Some will have some "rainbow effects spots/pools" a.k.a. "Newton's rings" on the front and/or back, where the different inner and outer plastics may touch and light refracts through them. This does not hurt the comic in any way. See more info on my CGC Graded comics page. No returns because of this effect, ok? Get FREE raw comics with them too.
PLEASE read the main points on the "How to Order" page if interested in buying anything, before you e-mail or call me, thanks. I can take credit card orders via Square's Invoice program. I'm NOT buying, thanks. Site navigation links are at the bottom of all pages. "View" links are set to open in a new window/tab, so just close them to return here.

Top edge above Spectacular has a 1" light thumbed wrinkle line; right edge has a 2" vertical stress line at middle, another 2" one from bottom edge up, about 1/4" in, and 1/4" vertical thumbed stress across from MAR. date; bottom right corner has a few stresses in various directions, 1/8" to 1/2", and you can see the bottom edge color dings/flakes in scan; two 1.25" or so horizontal printing creases, one through Comics Code box, other at top right corner of art; spine has a couple very light kinks near GL, otherwise very nice; little printing streaks at Batman circle; very slight bend/wave in Robin's head (standing next to Green Arrow); thin 1/8" indent line next to Black Canary's boot in left margin.

Nightwing #8, Vol. 1. Vs. Blockbuster...$1
Tales of the Teen Titans #43, Vol. 1, 1984 series. Nice NM 9.4, couple thin short spine stresses, little white stress mark and flake on bottom spine corner. Very nice spine, smooth cover. Has some usual ink rub-off in the white margin on back cover from other comics, no biggie. "The Judas Contract" part 2, with Deathstroke the Terminator going after Dick Grayson and various Teen Titans. First Jericho, son of Deathstroke. It is NOT in any way a 'cameo/1st mention of 1st Nightwing,' as some auction sellers are saying! ALL it says on the last story page for the next issue is "Dick Grayson's new identity!", which yes, is Nightwing, but there's no mention or art of 'Nightwing'. That happens in issue #44. So this is for Deathstroke fans, and his appearances on the 'Arrow' and 'Titans' TV shows have ignited interest in his early comic appearances again...$8 (View)
