Comic Book Keyboard Stickers @killerduckdecals

This is a must have for everyone! This set of comic-book themed keyboard stickers is a must for the comic lover who does a lot of typing. We would rather look at our favourite superheros all day than letters.


The decals will actually fit both the wireless 13", 15" Mac Books and most Mac Book Airs. PLUS it won't block out the awesome back lit keys of the keyboards underneath.

Kill Duck Decals Say that their decals leave no residue and are easy to apply, printed on high quality vinyl and laminated with a heavy duty, slightly glossy, protective layer. Their skins are meant to make your stuff look cooler, not make them bomb proof. So don't go flashing them around in the bad part of town and skipping them across lakes because they do not grant your electronics super-powers.
You can find these decals at Killerduckdecals

Workman Finds Action Comics First Edition Superman worth $100,000 in walls

A Workman has found a rare Action Comics First Edition Comic book in a wall of a house that he was renovating.
Gonzales, of New York, was renovating a house in Minnesota when he came across what is considered the Holy Grail of comic books: Action Comics No. 1 from 1938, which introduced the Man of Steel to the world.
'Valuable comic books so often have almost magical — and in many cases, ironic — back-stories like this,' said Vincent Zurzolo, co-owner of ComicConnect.

The Comic was rated 1.5 condition when studied and graded

The book sat undisturbed in the ceiling of the house in the town of Hoffman for over 70 years. The lucky construction worker said he understands the ripped cover and other damage might have decrease the potential price. But he said that doesn’t bother him.'I’m not a hungry person about money,' he said, adding that he’d rather work for it.In its current less-than-mint condition, the the No 1 issue showing Superman lifting a car above his head is expected to fetch more than $100,000 for Gonzalez.
Only about 100 issues of the comic, which sold originally for 10 cents, are known to exist and it is considered by many enthusiasts to be the Holy Grail of comic books.'It's considered by most people as the most important book,' John Dolmayan, a comic book dealer and drummer for System of a Down, told NBC News. 'It kind of ushered in the age of the superheroes.'

A Rare First Edition Spider-man Comic

The next most valuable superhero is Spider-Man, whose first appearance in Amazing Fantasy in 1962 attracts bids of about $1million at auction.Zurzolo, the co-owner of ComicConnect, said it was miraculous that the Superman comic had survived for nearly eight decades.'It’s so hard for anyone to fathom that, in this day and age, you could still discover a comic book that nobody has known about because this book was in a wall of a house for more than 70 years,' he said.


Superman has kept his popularity over the decades, generating a series of films, television shows and spin off series such as Smallville. 


In the latest film, Man of Steel, which is due for release on June 14, fans of the superhero from Krypton will watch Clark Kent confront his secret background after Earth is invaded by members of his race.

Looking after your Comics for the future

Need to look after your comic book collection?? by taking a few simple precautions, you can protect your comics and enjoy them for years to come. Below is some helpful tips to keep them in great condition.

  • Comics storage: Storing comic books can be as simple or as elaborate as you want. On the simple side, comic book sized plastic bags are available to keep dust and dirt out. Special acid-free cardboard backings are also available that wont damage ink. For more serious collectors, or more valuable comics, there are hard plastic cases that will protect your comic from almost everything.
  • Caring for your comics: To keep your comics in good condition, keep your comics out of direct sunlight. Sunlight will quickly fade comics, making the ink dull and the pages brittle. Also, avoid handling your comics too often as oils on your fingers will eventually discolour the comics and leave spots.
Comics have gone a long way from the classic "POW" "KABOOM" "WHACK" days of the Golden Age. Complex story lines challenge characters both physically and emotionally, and the artwork has never been better, so make sure you keep them in great condition for years to come so future generations can enjoy the thrill of a fresh comic book, or simply keep them safe to protect your investment.

A Quick Guide To A Comic Grading System




Need to grade a comic book? look no further, below is a quick rough guide to scale and grade your collection.

The following comics grading scale is commonly used to rate the condition of comics. It includes the name of the condition, the symbol for the condition, and a numerical value.

Mint (MT) Comics, 9.9 to 10.0: The best example of comic book condition ever seen. Perfect, or as near to perfect as possible.
Near Mint/Mint (NM/M) Comics, 9.8: Almost perfect. Only minor imperfections. Comic book is flat and shows no wear.
Near Mint (NM) Comics, 9.2 to 9.7: Nearly perfect with only minor binding errors allowed. Ink is bright and reflective, no cover wear.
Very Fine/Near Mint (VF/NM) Comics, 9.0: Outstanding condition. Slight cover bend apparent and wear is almost imperceptible.
Very Fine (VF) Comics, 7.5 to 8.5: Excellent condition. Relatively flat cover with minor corner wear. Paper is supple, not brittle.
Fine/Very Fine (FN/VF) Comics, 7.0: Above-average condition. Minor cover wear shows. Corners may be blunted.
Fine (FN) Comics, 5.5 to 6.5: Above average. Cover shows wear, but is clean with no creasing. Blunted corners common. Minor or moderate spine roll.
Very Good/Fine (VG/FN) Comics, 5.0: Above average, but obviously used. Minor cover wear with minor or moderate creases. Minor staple tear and minor rust acceptable.
Good/Very Good (GD/VG) Comics, 3.0: Used with substantial wear. Cover loose, or detached at one staple. Discoloration or fading apparent.
Good (GD) Comics, 1.8 to 2.5: Substantial wear, obviously read. Dull cover. Moderate soiling and staining.
Fair/Good (FR/GD) Comics, 1.5: Substantial and heavy wear. Cover lacks luster. Soiled, scuffed, and possibly unattractive.
Fair (FR), 1.0 Comics: Heavy wear. Lowest collectible grade. Spine split and roll common. Missing, rusted, or discolored staples.

Marvel Legends Action Figures Line


Marvel Legends is an Action Figure line based on the characters of Marvel Comics, Initially it was produced by Toy Biz, but later by Hasbro.

The Marvel Legends line is a spin-off of the Spider-Man Classics line also produced by Toy Biz. At its inception in 2002, the Marvel Legends line took over the clamshell packaging and the included comic book that had shipped with the Spider-Man Classics line.
The first Marvel Legends series included representations of the Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, and Toad.

Fast Forward to 2007, and Hasbro became the new license holder of the rights to produce toys and games based upon the Marvel Universe, while Toy Biz was renamed Marvel Toys.
However the new Hasbro packaging did not include a comic this time.

Captain America : A Patriotic Solider


In World War II patriotic solider Steve Rogers recipient of the "Super Soldier Serum" became the living symbol of freedom, Captain America. Left for dead while frozen in ice, the star-spangled hero with an indestructible shield awoke years later to continue his never-ending battle for liberty.

A Comic Book

A comic book or comicbook, also called comic magazine or simply comic, is a publication, first popularized in the United States, of comics art in the form of sequential juxtaposed panels that represent individual scenes. Panels are often accompanied by brief descriptive prose and written narrative, usually dialog contained in word balloons emblematic of the comics art form. The first comic book appeared in the United States in 1933 and was a reprinting of earlier newspaper comic strips which had established many of the story-telling devices used in comics. The term comic book arose because the first comic book reprinted humor comic strips. Despite their name, comic books are not necessarily humorous in tone—modern comic books tell stories in many genres. No matter what you think of them, love them or hate them, they are a major part of our society.
