March 12th, 2011 - Comments Off on Super is coming April 1st to Theatres - Movies
He’s not really a superhero, but he can beat your ass in with a hammer, or possibly a wrench. Plus, he’s got Ellen Page for a sidekick. She’s spunky. Check out the first poster for James Gunn’s “Super”. Now I hadn’t heard of this movie until today but I may have to check it out. It looks like a crazy version of Kick Ass but I won’t let that deter me.
Starring Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon, Gregg Henry, Michael Rooker, Andre Royo, Sean Gunn, Stephen Blackehart and directed by James Gun. Check out the trailer for it below:
March 9th, 2011 - Comments Off on Spider-Man’s First Appearance Sells for $1.1 Million - Comics
A copy of Spider-Man’s first appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15 with a rating of 9.6 sold Tuesday to the tune of $1.1 million. That ranks it’s sale as the second highest amount for a comic sale on record. I gotta say, it must be nice to have that kind of money to invest in a comic. I’ll settle for just reading a reprint and having that on my shelf.
Just one year after selling the comic book with the first appearance of Superman for $1.5 million, the people at ComicConnect.com have done it again, this time with the world’s most famous webhead.
Spider-Man’s first appearance in “Amazing Fantasy” #15 was sold to an anonymous buyer on Tuesday to the tune of $1.1 million. In a press release, ComicConnect.com – an online collectibles marketplace – ranked it as the world’s second most valuable comic book, after the aforementioned “Action Comics” #1, with Superman.
The auction site had previously sold “Detective Comics” #27, where Batman first appeared, for $1.0755 million back in February of 2010. Before last year, sought-after comics like this would never sell for seven figures.
Stephen Fishler, the CEO of ComicConnect.com, said that this sale of “Amazing Fantasy” #15 is a record for the Silver Age of comics from the late 1950s and early 1960s. “The sale of this book crushed all previous records. Up until today’s $1.1 million sale, the record sales price of a comic book from this era was $250,000.”
Fishler first acquired the book 25 years ago, and sold it for $2,500. He later acquired and sold it again for $140,000 in 2000. Fishler also created a widely-accepted grading scale in the years since (driving the prices of highly graded comics skyward), and this book is ranked as a 9.6 out of 10.
“The buyer of this amazing comic wanted to own the very best,” said ComicConnect.com partner Vincent Zuzolo. “The Amazing Fantasy #15 – 9.6 is the definition of the very best.”
