Awesome read as always Very Happy

For me it goes..Doom covers, then awesome covers....so Characters #1, Cool Covers #2 (of the choices). I really like some creators, but it Never determines what i read or what i like.

I have a follow up question for you though...and I'm hoping this has never been asked by anyone because its a hard one to answer lol...

While looking through a $0.50 bin...How do you determine which comics you are grabbing? (and Yes I know every dive will be different, but there are typically guidelines you give yourself to go by)

Is it true what I've heard, Benjamin? That when Johnny Storm died -- valiantly facing an endless army... Is it true that you -- surrounded by crying children -- weeping at the inevitable death of your close comrade and friend... Is it true? Is it true that you just...watched? How very brave.

For me, it's hard to separate character from creator. Even if I initially like the character, if the story and art are both bad, I will lose interest quickly.

I do have favorite characters, but I can definitely be entertained even if I don't care about a certain character/book if the story pulls me in.

The best of both worlds is a great writer/artist team weaving a tale about a character I love.

I like cool covers, but they aren't make or break for me.
I'm the best there is at what I do. And what I do best is buy/sell comics.

I always try to find one shots or complete mini's if I can as my first priority. Second, I try to find missing issues in mini's or series that I already have. Third, I look for awesome covers or strange things I've never seen before (picked up some Japanese Spawn issues not long ago. Can't read a word, but they're interesting to me).

AmZoMBiE, when I'm looking in discount boxes (and I'm fortunate, because my local LCS tends to have around 5 quarter boxes going at a time, with one or two 50 cent boxes), I try to be open minded about what would be good issues to put in my blog, especially when I find comics that are from the Seventies or Eighties. Currently, I'm trying to get a lot of Valiant comics, as I'm having fun exploring that company. Also, I didn't get in on early DC Rebirth titles, so I get those when I find them (I picked up 7 Batgirl issues and 4 New Super-Man issues recently for a quarter each). And when I can find Seventies Marvels that I know I don't have, I always buy them. Thanks for asking!

In my humble opinion, New Super-Man was one of the best things to come out of Rebirth. Shame it ended already. Sad

On the bright side. . .at just 24 issues, it's an easy run to collect AND the perfect size for a Longbox Junk entry!
