“There. I Said It”. Opinions On Comic Books

But the ones I have disdain for are those who NEVER read the comics they own, NEVER read any comics, etc, etc. They might just as easily pick up a rare wine or car if they could. And they wouldn’t drink your wine, drive the motor car, browse the comic, etc. Seems a pity for a comic to be locked away, to be read never.

We’ve had a number of discussions (even verging on flamewars) on that very topic, taxidriver1980. Personally, I view “collecting comics as an investment” and “reading comics as a hobby” as two fundamentally different things, although they may obviously overlap. Comics are both the material support for a tale (and I include all the aspects that produce a comic-book story enjoyable, including their old paper smell and the yellowish tint of their paper) and cultural artifacts. As the former, they are meant to be read, reread, and enjoyed for the experience they offer; as the latter, they are items with a certain monetary value.

  • Home Office
  • During a bank or investment company reconciliation process,
  • Those S/H’s have identical ownership of >50%. Identical = lower of the %’s
  • The book is simply too basic
  • Check to make sure the dividend payment doesn’t include capital increases

15 as to actually read it, I’m sure). Some claim that they trade comics so they can have money to buy the comics they would like to read. ‘s the way the currency markets works fundamentally! I’ve reconciled myself to the comic-book marketplace. It’s eliminated just a little crazy during the last few decades, but mostly for just certain issues, so it doesn’t have much of a direct effect over the common audience. It’s not unique of people who gather rare and first release books for investment or even to just collect them. If/when they read books, they often read easily available printings/editions of the works, not the uncommon first model or other rare edition.

If someone is actually an audience and a reader only, they don’t caution what printing/model, single concern/collected edition, they will read it in whatever edition is available just. Once you begin down the path of me must have it in a certain format, you are not really a reader, you’re a collector who happens to learn what they collect. However the not-reading thing isn’t new. In the 80s Back, the norm within my list was for pull customers to get 2 copies of books like X-Men, 1 to learn and 1 to handbag and plank and keep reselling when it rises in value. They weren’t buying multiple copies to read multiple copies.

When summer season internship recruiting comes around, you can indicate a logical development toward finance and your industry experience in health care. Since you’ve done so much networking, have a great application, and have prepared for interviews, you get a summer internship in the healthcare group at a bulge-bracket bank or investment company in the SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, which becomes a full-time Associate offer. This is just a good example of the “path” you might take – you don’t need to be from a healthcare background and you don’t need to have gone to Wharton or proved helpful in SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA.

But this practice of working in another industry and then moving into a related industry in the fund is common, which explains why I’ve selected it. What did our aspiring banker here right do? Not all folks can get into Wharton, but it’s a waste to shoot for 2nd tier schools.
