This Week in Geek 5/29
Welcome to a rare new comic’s Thursday edition of This Week in Geek. Since Monday was Memorial Day the boys at the post office and UPS got the day off and new comics day moves from Wednesday to Thursday. This can be traumatizing for serious comic junkies but those of us who have been collecting for a while plan ahead.
The Comic Speculator: Indiana Jones
This Friday marks the big-screen return of Indiana Jones, nerd-dom’s favorite fedora-wearing archaeologist and I like most nerds couldn’t be more excited. I get goosebumps every time I hear the theme song.

It’s Wednesday again and that means it’s time to get a swift kick in my wallet. No I’m not talking about $3.69 a-gallon-gas, I’m talking about yet another mammoth new comic day. Don’t get me wrong the price of gas is insane.

New comic day almost killed me this week.
The Comic Speculator: Doom vs Iron Man
With the Iron Man movie premiering this week, I have goose bumps just thinking about it, I thought it would be a good time to highlight one of my favorite runs of ol’ shell-head’s comic. In the 80’s David Micheline and Bob Layton redefined Tony Stark’s character making him the Iron Man we know today.

Happy DC Universe day true believers!
Hi fellow comic aficionados.
I’ve been lurking here and enjoying Matt’s articles over the past few weeks. He has a wealth of information to share but so far its mainly been a one-sided conversation. In the hopes of opening up participation I figured an introduction thread would be in order.
How to Submit a Comic Book Question
Recently I have been contacted by a couple of members that were confused as to what information I would need to help them in figuring out what kind of comics they had and how much they were worth. This got me thinking. I’ve noticed that there isn’t a currently a Worthologist question format for each category so I decided to make one just for comics.
What condition are my comics in?
When discussing comic books you often will see certain terms thrown around to describe book’s condition; like “Very Good+”, “Near Mint” and “Fine”. When represented properly, they can be very helpful, especially when buying comics on-line and you can’t directly see what you’re getting.
