  • I thought maybe it would be fun to start a thread where people can list their $1(or less) box finds that turn out to be profitable. I could look through long boxes all day, it's one of the great things about collecting comics although as Morgayne can confirm, I am the slowest at it ever.

    Let's stick to just your LCS or maybe a yard sale perhaps, no online purchases. Something maybe you didn't know the exact price of but thought maybe it could be worth something and it turned out it was.

    My lcs recently removed a bunch of stuff from his $1 drawers and added new comics. I got to check them out yesterday and the FIRST two comics I looked at were Deathlok vol 4 #1b and Deathlok vol 5 #4b, both 9.4's(unbagged!) and worth $15 each. About 20 issues after those I found Witchblade/Elektra #1b worth $10. I also got Iron Man #200 in so-so shape, maybe a 6.0-6.5

    Not earth shattering deals but still decent books to buy for a buck each and it made me happy to find the Deathloks as I am a fan of his.

  • Sweet finds, both of you!
    My big score was the avenging spider-man #9 first Ms. Marvel appearance back in May for a buck. My LCS as far as I know hasn't done another $1 bin day since the Free comic book day. They do, once a month do a 50% off back issue sale though and I found a few last weekend including a Weapon H #1 variant valued at $35 for about $7. (Sorry last one not in the dollar box range)

  • I spoke too soon. I stopped in the LCS and they had a dollar bin sale. Finally! I found 18 books, nothing super crazy but did get a Batman Annual 2 (rebirth) that is worth $10. Not too bad though.

  • My favorite $1 find was a copy of Terminator: The Burning Earth #1, maybe a $10 book, but also a first published work (Alex Ross) so it is sorta cool in that way.

  • I love to treasure hunt in $1 and .50 cent boxes. I once found a Maxx #1 ashcan and also the first three issues of Supergirl (vol.1, 1972) which were in decent shape. You never know what you'll find.

    Machete & I got to build a box yesterday for $125, so everything came down to about $.34 each (so many great finds, SO much Battlestar Galactica!).

    These were a neat find & are worth about $10-15 a pop.

    This series was another fun find; the artwork is so cool & I can't wait to read the story! I'm not specifically into steampunk or anything, but I like this general idea & the execution, so hopefully it's a good read.
