    hey everyone,...question. so ive been away from the comic world since like 1988 and just got back into it. i recall back in the day only buying back issue comics if they had bar codes. is that still a big deal? i asked the comic book manager at the store i buy my comics (they mainly sell games and music, movies,) and he said yes, but hes young and has only been collecting for like 3 years so i thought i'd get more opinions. THANKS. totally not saying being young is bad....just sayin' he doesnt seem to have a lot of knowledge on value...

      Actually the barcode makes very little difference. It’s correct that one was direct and the other was newsstand but it’s a misconception that the newsstand is a reprint. It’s part of the same print run but part of the cover layout is changed towards the end of the printing. It’s really just collector’s preferences for the direct over the newsstand.

    Been buying comics faster than I can read them. I'm dislexic, and my dislexia is off the chain lately. I have a stack pulled out that I'm getting ready to read. I live right behind a shop that carries everything from movies to music to posters, toys, and yes...comics. Since comics are not their primary focus at all, it's unbelievable the comics I find in their vast amount of 1 dollar back-issue comics. They don't have the recources to pull comics out of the dollar boxes and check value. They have thousands of them. Not only do I find awesome books, but the conditions are always super good. Their number one focus include games and movies,....not comics, so lucky for me! Also, if you subscribe to 3 new comic series you get ALL back-issue comics buy one get one free (yes, to include the high dollar comics in the glass case. I can buy one $100.00 comic and get another $100.00 comic free. So, I have built up my collection quickly. Been sick all week so I haven't been, but I'll be back for the attack ASAP!

      What's the name of your comic store and do they have an online purchase program?
