As an updated, those two books sold for over $200 today on eBay.

That's a cost of $8 to a sale of $200 ... in one day. Mighty fine return, folks!

Oh, and did you pick up some MVL stock? It hit $26.44 on Monday.

We'll see how my prediction does.

Remember what I was saying about making some easy cash with comics? Well, these two comics came out today and are selling for $75 (at latest bid)

Captain America #25

Cost in stores for both books? $8

Total profit per set? $67

Not bad!

Hello folks! Investment banker Steve here.

MVL is now trading at $27.79 and potentially dropping

I say that it will be a sound stock to buy soon and sell off somewhere between May and mid-June.

In three months, I'll check back to see how well I did in my prediction.

Saw the Number 23 on kind of a whim but, I'm glad I did. It was a wonderful romp through paranoia. High on suspense, low on gore and profanity. Good twist ending (that I 16% suspected).

The only drawback is that I don't think it'll be as good the second time around. Kind of like the Sixth Sense dragged on the second time I saw it.

Joe sent this to me. If you've ever played DDR, then you will understand how incredible this little kid is. If you haven't, trust me ... to get all perfects is quite the impressive feat. Especially for a 5 year old!

Ghost Rider was truly a comic book movie.

Not a bad movie at all; fun for what it was. The story took a little while to get going but, once in motion, the battles and awesome special effects were in full force.

It had some humorous parts in it to break up the serious tones of the movie. My favorite was the end of the goth chick's interview.

They incorporated the original western hero, Ghost Rider, into the current "Spirit of Vengeance" Ghost Rider mythos pretty well (even though, there's no basis for it in the comics) and was a nice nod to all things Ghost Rider. Although, I would have liked a reference to Dan Ketch (the dude with the GR curse in the 90s)

Seeing these characters in action on film is always a treat for me, and I'm looking forward to seeing the inevitable director's cut DVD.

It's really frustrating when I get a Paypal payment from someone outside the United States who automatically assumes that the posted domestic shipping applies to them.

As if $3 will get your package anywhere near the Netherlands, Mr. Willemsen.

Ever wonder how people would react to super-heroes in the real world? Yep ... we'd freak out and lockdown schools! C'mon folks ... he was probably just on the trail of a homicidal maniac made up as a clown.

Man, I wish I had seen it.
