So I know no updates in a while but I’ve got some things on the burner. So here’s a quick one:
I was bidding on a copy of X-Men 180 on eBay. Nothing special, but it’s a missing issue in my X-Men run I’ve been working on from #1-200 (Good luck getting #1 but that’s a story for another day). I won, and as the nice seller was bagging and tagging it for shipping, he ripped the cover.
Thanks to the miracle of eBay’s totalitarian useful seller tools, my seller had already printed the pre-paid shipping label. In order to save face and grace, he offered to cancel the sale and refund my money so he could recoup the auction fees. I agreed, things happen. But out of the niceness of his eBayer heart, he said he’d send it anyway since it was no longer anywhere near “near mint” condition, and the postage was already charged to his account.
SO I got a free comic book. And goodwill.
