RECYCLE, Your Old Marvel Comic Books???

The Comic Book Listings Blog:

Listing News:

Recycle Your
Old Marvel Comic Books?

Astonishing! Incredible! Even Criminal!
But TRUE!!!

While shopping craigslist for Comic Book Bargains to post here, on my blog. I came across this one listing titled; "Recycle Your Old Marvel Comic Books".

Thinking it was just some restoration service, I started to move on without clicking the Ad but, there was just something about the word "recycle", that bothered me.

So I clicked the link and found that was in fact, Not a restoration service. But some "person", who is Chopping Up Old Marvel comicbooks to make
, "a comic covered dresser for my best friend's birthday".

Worse yet,
as they are actually using craigslist, to Solicit Donations of Marvel Comic Books, to Chop Up!

Is this person INSANE???
I mean, sure, chop up some NEW comics which have no value. But not the old ones!

And, ...what am I saying! As even chopping up New comic books is insane. I mean, the comic covered dresser is a nice thought and all. But,.. BUT!!! ...Get a Copier and copy the covers onto a sheet of paper. Or use DECALS!!! Then glue and varnish to your heart's desire. But never, NEVER, use a Real Comic Book!

In all fairness, I guess I should state that, after I calmed down from initially reading the craigslist Ad. And in the writing of this article. I have discovered that the listing actually reads; "Recycle your 'worn' Marvel Comic books".

So incredible this is, that I took a frame capture of the craigslist Ad, and posted it above, for EVIDENCE!!!

Yours truly,
CBL Bargain Hunter


craigslist: Recycle your worn Marvel Comic books

{Note: Do you think I have over-reacted?
Your comments about this atrocity are welcomed.}

Update: Ut, oh! In all the years I've been reporting on comic book listings. This is the first time I've ever seen this...
This posting has been flagged for removal. [?]
(The title on the listings page will be removed in just a few minutes.)

Ok so, chopping up comic books in my opinion, is a crime. But I would never FLAG someone's listing. And I hope that wasn't the cause of this listing being flag. Nevertheless, I think I will be a little more careful in my reporting next time.

Next he'll be asking for "Tales to Astonish" #1 to use as toilet paper.
