    Mae, sure, and thatís great, in that they are building a consistent world, but it also constrains your storytelling. The more you overlaps characters and settings, the more constrained you are.

    Thanks tippy. I'll add those pieces of cardboard to my usual method. I clean bag, then bubble-wrap-bag, taped with scotch tape if required, then peanuts all around - especially the box corners - with...

    Wow, that's a great packing job! I'm glad the book was unscathed.

    Unfortunately, I *didn't* quite pack a recent item quite well enough (three oversized books in a slipcase), and it sustained...

    Thanks, Mae. Yes, they bring up exactly my concern, and you can see that they are worried, too.

    The discussion itself also exemplifies why I'm concerned - characters from other series bring with...

    I hope they donít go overboard with putting in a whole bunch of Star Wars stuff from other series and movies into the Mandalorian season 2. I fear, though, that given how much the Mandalorian is both...

    See I never heard that. My understanding is that what Snyder had planned was entirely shot and he had to leave the film during post production, which is when Joss Whedon was brought in. Joss ended up...

    Yeah, so many people act as if Justice league was a dumpster fire of a movie. I mean, I didnít think it was great, but it wasnít bad. It was exciting, it held my attention, but it definitely suffered...

    This is fantastic, but Iím a little puzzled as to what this will actually be. My understanding is that whole sequences of what Snyder planned for JL were not shot. And thatís even neglecting the...

    They are a crap shoot. Some have some real gems - a recent one included a Suntup Rosemary's Baby AGE! - some are a whole bunch of nothing. Depending on what you collect, of course.

    Ugh. Things like that are heartbreaking.

    I think for a fine condition book you will still be paying top dollar. They are hard to find since the dust jacket is easily damaged and the boards are cheap paper. I would think at least $600+....
