This week's haul: finding #1s in new places!

Hey all!  Been busy lately, but I figured now would be a good time to check in (before work sucks me back in!!!).  

This week, my son had a Pinewood Derby race at the local mall for Cub Scouts.  The local mall has been dying for years, much like every mall in the US over the last decade.  One thing our local mall has done to prevent going out of business is bring in local vendors to run shops 3-4 days a week.  It is mildly frustrating when you do want to go into a shop that is closed on certain days, but with big events, most shop owners are open.  The mall staff also ran a few other events at the same time, including a Garage Sale event where anyone can rent a table space and bring in stuff to sell.  If you pile enough events on, the mall almost appears to be busy like it used to be!!!

One of the garage sale vendors was a record guy that I know from various other events.  I noticed that he had a couple of boxes of comics to pick through, so I decided to peruse while we waited for my son's race to begin!

$50 dollars later, I came away with Nova #1, She-Hulk #1, The Cat #1, Venom Lethal Protector #1-3, and various ASM issues that contain Venom!  I feel like I got a great deal, and I was happy to come away with a few cool books!  The Nova #1 looks like it could use a good press, so I will be sending that in shortly!

My son ended up winning the Pinewood Derby this weekend and brought home a huge trophy!  Celebrations all around!

Have a great week and thanks for reading!
