    D'oh! I think I've been downloading the same thing. Did your source have Ravage 2099?

    I also have all but 2 issues of Doom 2099, it's a pretty good read.

    From the looks of it, the upload is missing Ravage 2099, 2099: World of Tomorrow, and 2099: Manifest Destiny.

    But all 3 of those sucked so it is probably best we don't find them :o

    Good point. How about the one-shots Marvel Knights released not too long ago: Black Panther, Daredevil, Inhumans, Mutant, Punisher? Anyone know if those are any good?

    They aren't 2099 in the traditional sense, more of a reimagining of 2099...

    Daredevil 2099 was just :ugh:

    Oh man I remember when these came out, I bought 4 different original #1 issues and had the Spiderman 2099 signed at a convention. Anyone know the pricing of these, or other comics? I have a bunch that have been sitting around for 15 years or so, didn't think there was still a market really!

    I'm such a comic nerd that my investments paper was about the death of the comics market :o

    Basically the '90s speculation comics boom did a huge number on the industry. There was a HUGE demand for collector items so you had companies churning out #0 issues, foil covers, etc as fast as they could. Those things basically made companies like Valiant profitable. Wizard went from a guide to basically hawking items and gushing about collectables non-stop. It got to the point where there were at least 3-6 variant covers per issue put out, the exact same card sets being simultaneously released with slight differences (packaging art, etc), and the market got saturated. When prices became outrageous (ie: foil covers selling for $60 a month after release) people started cashing them out as quickly as possible and the collectors market died out.

    So companies like Valiant started dying because they were incurring HUGE debt for printing but no one was buying it any more. A few bad releases and they went up for auction. Marvel and DC were lucky because they've been around forever so while the specuation death did hurt them it didn't kill them off.

    But they did learn their lesson and since then they've been REALLY aggressive against price inflation on their books so they keep direct reprints easily available and have flooded the market with TPBs. Pushing TPBs right after an arc was over was one of the first things Quesada did as the new editor-in-chief.

    So really, only diehard collectors collect these days and they generally don't touch things without them getting CGC rated 9+ (http://www.cgccomics.com/, they rate and seal the comics in a special case) and most sales are on eBay. Comic stores aren't the nerd haven they once were and have instead become places where Yu-Gi-Oh cards are sold. Store owners don't feel as knowledgable anymore and really wont give you squat for things.
