But in the 1970's, publishers began to push against the CCA and there was a major...

Legion of Superheroes: Week Seven

Crossing over When reviewing long stretches of old comics continuity, one of the difficult parts is figuring out the order in which to read each issue. If it’s Marvel or DC Comics, you have decades-long continuity, multiple realities and a half-dozen reboots to contend with. Before the 1980’s, though, it was quite easy to get...

Stocking up on Daredevil, Walking Dead and X titles

I dropped a bit more than usual on comics this week. As I do every other week, I went to the local flea market again. Much like every other week, same guys selling the same comics. However, I noticed a guy had a new stack on his table- with some comics in mylars. I was excited to find something new, so I headed over and started searching! The vast majority of...

Flea Market finds!!

on Feb 6, 2018 7:10:00 am - 103 views | 0 comments
Another wintry week, another trip to the flea market. The cold weather tends to keep the attendance lower for the flea market, including sellers. Over the last few weeks here in upstate New York, there were weeks that I showed up to the flea market to find 8 vendors where there are normally about 50- makes it a lot harder to find a decent comic! I was in luck this...
