Many of you might recall the restored Flash 123 fiasco experienced by boardie passion4comics at the hands of well known comic scammer Ed Heaton (aka 54desoto on eBay) .

The saga continues...

Dennis (the shadow knows) has a couple walk into his shop wanting to sell him some comic books. Long story short, the couple bought some books from Ed Heaton for four-hundred fifty dollars, including the restored Flash 123. The restoration was never disclosed.

Nice job, Ed, you tool.

I have no registry points, so the only way to exercise my geek superiority is by being a jerk.

Where does Ed Heaton, the tool, sell from? I mean, besides eBay.

Craig's List (Eugene/Springfield area). He's also listed in the directory as Comic Book Buyer or something similar.

"DC is ending all its titles this month. Starting all over again means these "old D.C." JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA will sky in value."

gosh, every time a thread about Ed comes up, it angers me...not at the OP but at the thought that I was scammed for so many Silver Age books I bought from that guy back in the days when I lived in Oregon from 1992 to 2000.

trimmed books, CT, page missing, etc....named it, I got them all from him.

It likely doesn't help, but Ed got me too when I was returning to the hobby after a very long absence. He refused to refund my money and dodged me or gave me every song and dance excuse. I feel your rage

Ed is the kind of bottom feeding, fly on shat piece of human debris who will rip off anyone he can. Ed hassled some old lady, and I mean old, for weeks on end when he found out she had a small box full of GA Caps.

Luckily for the old lady, her grandson was a collector and took care of her. In spite of being told numerous times she would not sell the books, Ed persisted with harassing the woman trying desperately to pressure her into selling to him.

If a Google search image can best describe Ed, I feel it'd be this...

I wouldn't even have words with him; in fact, I'd be serving him lunch...in the form of 2 knuckle sandwiches...
