Am I Too Skeptical?

Whenever a seller on Ebay claims they have some really old, awesome, stuff in unused condition, I put on my sleuthing hat. I naturally doubt statements like, “found in an attic at my dead uncle’s house. He never wore any of the clothes he bought, so it’s brand new!” or “I knocked down a wall in my new home and found the world’s most pristine collection of Battle Beasts.” I just don’t buy it.

So where do I stand on this Marvelman/Miracleman shirt? Dude says he bought a store and this was one of the stock items he found. Unused. Hm. Certainly seems old. But the seller’s name is Toastedbudman. Doesn’t make him seem like the most reputable character. On the other hand, it’s hard to imagine there being such a demand for Marvelman merch that someone would go to the trouble of bootlegging it now.

Either way, this shirt is a cool piece of crap for very little money. Pick it up and if it happens to NOT be the genuine article, just keep the lie alive.

Miracleman.

When I sold my Miracleman collection 5 years ago, I got $300 for graphic novel collection of the first 3 issues, plus an additional 3 issues and a copy of Kimota! the Miracleman Companion.

It wasn’t worth it. I really miss them. But it was probably worth it for whoever bought them from me. Whoever wins this auction for the complete run of the series will undoubtedly pay much more than $300, but they will definitely be just as worth it for them as it was for the guy who bought mine.

Seriously, this series was a total game changer, and one of the best Alan Moore works ever (the Neil Gaiman portion ain’t half bad either). Why I ever sold what I had of it, I have no idea…

Oh, that’s right, I was recovering from surgery and couldn’t work and need money for necessities like food.

I should have just starved.
