Slow Weekend for Comics

714 views • Nov 19, '17 • (0) Comments

This weekend was Local Comic Shop Day.  Sadly, I was not able to attend due to family obligations.  Hopefully next time!!

To make up for it, I went to the local flea market today.  I usually find nothing in the way of comics when I show up- its always either a pile of waste that was found in a barn, or a bunch of 'valuable' comics from the 90's that are worth tons because they were bagged and boarded, according to the guy who is trying to flip them.... yeah.

I did stumble upon one collection that did have a few things I have been looking for, however!  Alpha Flight 17 (first Big Hero 6) and 2 copies of The new Teen Titans 10 (third DeathStroke).  It was nice to actually find some things that have been on my want list!!  Even better- I got all three comics for $5!!!  Made my bust of a weekend a little less painful, I must say!

New stash gifted to me!

Went to the local flea market yesterday and found a small pile of autographed comics for a buck a piece.  Nothing incredible, but there was a run of the DC 1,000,000 comics in there and a Star Trek Generations movie adaptation graphic novel signed by Barbara March, who played Lursa on TNG.  Cool stuff and I was happy to find something on an otherwise strike out day!

Later, I was gifted an older pile of comics from a friend that did not want them taking up space in their house any more.  Lots of DC stuff, and I usually shy away from DC, but it was free and all....  Looking through, I found some gold: 3 copies of Shazam! #1, 1 copy of #25, and 2(!) copies of #28!!!  Forever People #1, New Gods #7, New Teen Titans #2.... very happy to own these keys that I never seem to find in the wild!!! 

My weekend went from meh to amazing in just a few short hours!!
