Taken a couple/few months ago as a joke. (Told a friend I had just bought another $150 in Marvel blanks. "Show me" Sent a pic. "Now I want to see all of your different blanks side by side." "R u friggin kidding?" "Nope" "ha ha ha *spoon*. Fine.") Thought I'd share.

Where its the best place to purchase blank covers at the lowest price? Anyplace online that sells then at below cover or discounts in bulk purchases?
Midtown Comics has blanks (and they'll specify grade, even though we all know that is up to their opinion) and they offer an online discount, free bags/boards and reasonable shipping if I'm not mistaken (depends on how fast you want them.) I just picked up a couple Avengers #1 first prints for around face value just the other day!
Also, I have told a couple different LCSs in my area to put EVERY blank they get in my file (best shape they can muster) and let me know if they can sell at face or cheaper since I'm buying them all. Sometimes ensuring the store that you're an "easy to deal with" customer can help in certain situations. I rarely walk in and say "no" to a blank. I only turn them down when they're beat up.
If I don't end up wanting to use the blank due to context, I'll either put it up on the boards here or the bay if needed. I know someone out there needs the canvas to fuel their one-of-a-kind art obsession.
