I continue to be shocked that anyone ever buys Wizard, let alone takes them 
seriously. I live right near their headquarters; they also run a comic book 
store nearby called WIZARD WORLD which is hands down one of the WORST stores 
I've ever been to. They are BIGTIME price gougers whose management shows no 
love or knowledge of comics. That they publish a price guide AND sell comics 
seems to me to be a conflict of interest.
