Hercules had it easy

Man why are some trivial tasks so difficult to accomplish..it's just comic collecting not trying to clean out the Augean stables in a single day....
I've been trying to buy my last 5 missing Avengers issues in low to mid-grade for about 50% - 60% guide...Well it has been a nightmare...Some people, whom I've had pleasant dealing with in the past, thought that I would be so desperate to get these last books that I would gladly pay nosebleed prices, so just these 5 books went up 20% in price the last week...
And then there's the dealer that had every issue I needed at a price I could live with, we set everything up, some noise comes back from his end,he offered them too cheaply, he's losing money by selling to an international dealer (paypal fees would have been $2.21 higher than with a domestic buyer P-lease). But I was confident all would go my way, then no communicado for 4 days. I cave in, contact him and get the news that he bought the books from a kid and that his father is now demanding the books backs and the he can't sell them to me...
For once I'll show some restraint and end with my Blog's name....'Nuff Said

You know you have come a long way in Comics collecting when getting five early Silver Age books is considered a trivial task...

You know you have come a long way in life when getting five very old pieces of paper is considered a trivial task...

I can go out and find other old papers easily :p

O...I have to stop behaving like an arse here!!

Allan, that dude you were selling from is a real eikel!! But I know how you must feel... and when that certain somebody won't answer for 4 days I KNOW you have been thinking about that deal every hour of every day and even when you go to bed it is probably one of the last things you think about!!

I could get a cool deal with some tpb's of Supreme Power and that dude is telling me "i have them on Ebay and am not ready to sell them offline" ...darn...but Ebay didn't come through so the deal is still miiiinnneee

I also got word from that American fella I send some comics to...he is currently posting the package and he included some GREAT extra's and even a Darkchylde Actionfigure!! GREAT...now I have one regular AF and one special AF!!
