ComicBase Livestream #21: Splitsville for DC and UCS

It was mere months ago when DC parted ways with Diamond Comic Distribution, and now they're splitting up with one of the two companies slated as replacements. What does this mean for you -- and your local comic store? We'll talk about this and much more with this week's podcast. (And, of course, answer your questions!)

ComicBase Livestream #20: Dealing with Variants

...or should that be Livestream #20/A? We'll be breaking down the whole deal with variants: what are they all about, what part of the market do they make up today, and how do we manage and value them all? We'll be going into both the underlying market for variants, as well as talking about how ComicBase approaches and manages them--and taking your questions!

It's Here!

ComicBase Livestream #18: Pros & Fans

Are comics pros duty-bound to do signings? Is it OK for fans to ask pros to give them a free sketch? And what does an amateur give up when they decide to make a living in their chosen art form? In this livestream, we'll be taking a look at what it means to be a pro -- not just in comics, but in any professional field. And for both pros and fans, what are the unwritten--but unbreakable--rules of the game?
