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!- read more
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!!- read more
