WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"Metropolis has a very professional attitude. I've never been subjected to any pressure to buy a comic, nor have I ever had to return an item because it was not as described. Items are shipped quickly, with great packaging, and every effort is made to help me with my selections."
- John H., Ohio

Dear Customers & Comic Fans,

My wife Linda and I have just returned from our Honeymoon in Equador and the Galapagos Islands. Needless to say we had the vacation of a lifetime. We highly recommend visiting both the mainland of Equador and the Galapagos. We spent a week in the Islands aboard a beautiful yacht. Daily events included three wonderful meals prepared by Pedro, the Saggita’s Chef and daily hiking tours and snorkeling trips to the various volcanic islands. The abundance of fauna and flora is overwhelming. We swam with sea lions, penguins and sea turtles. We walked on beaches filled with marine iguanas and nesting blue footed boobies (a bird species endemic to the islands). It was like no other experience we have ever had. In Equador we spent time at the Bellavista Wildlife Reserve located in the cloud Forests of northwestern Ecuador. For those of you who do not like humidity and would not visit a rain forest, the cloud forests are a perfect option. The forests are subtropical making them rather cool comparatively speaking. The variety of trees and flora combined with a wealth of intricate and challenging hiking trails made for exciting adventures everyday. Bellavista is known as one of the best bird watching destinations in the world. Though our first time bird watching we found ourselves captivated with the abundant variety of birds, including twenty-six different types of Humming Birds, Toucans, Trogons, Finches, Fly-Catchers and Tannagers. If anybody would like to visit please contact Richard Parsons of Bellavista. He is an extremely knowledgeable British gentleman who decided to help preserve the cloud forests of Equador and created a wonderful haven for the forest inhabitants and a great place for visitors. He started off as our host and guide and by the end of our trip he became our friend. Equador is an experience we will never forget and hopefully relive soon. The website for those of you interested is http://www.ecuadorexplorer.com/bellavista/home/take a look it is spectacular.

Though the hobby is being flooded with tons of material in a way that has never been done before I am still seeing a very active market. Spider-Man seems to have hit a plateau over the last few months. It continues to be a blue chip title but the price escalation due to the movie hype has dissipated completely. I have seen a renewed interest in 1950s pre-code horror comics.

Prices realized this month include: Amazing Fantasy #15 G/VG $1,600.00; Conan #19 9.8 CGC graded $675.00; Fantastic Four #48 9.4 CGC graded $1,850.00; Green Lantern #40 9.2 CGC graded $900.00; Captain America #37 FN $750.00; Showcase #9 F/VF $3,250.00 and Weird Science #12 (#1) F/VF $900.00.

A final note, we are sorry to see our long time friend and customer Nick Cage leaving the hobby after collaborating with him on building one of the finest collections of Golden & Silver Age comics in the world. We wish him continued success with his upcoming movie Adaptation and congratulations on his marriage to Lisa Marie Presley. We hope to see him return to comic collecting in the future-and of course we hope you enjoy this month's feature and all of the new inventory on the site.


Happy Halloween!
Vincent Zurzolo
