Hello all! It has been a little while since I posted- work has had me beaten down pretty hard, but I am back amongst the living!!!
This weekend, I was able to make it to the flea market. Nothing huge, but there was a new vendor that had a handful of cool comics in his dollar bin- some Punisher, X-Men, He-Man, and Eternal Warrior. I scooped up a Bloodshot #0 and #6- first app. of Colan King (becomes Ninjak). The best find in the lot was Eternal Warrior #4- first cameo of Bloodshot! I was able to fill in some missing gaps in my comic runs and add a key that I haven't found in the wild in a long time!
Next, I was off to my favorite shop- he doesn't sell new books, but survives solely on buy and selling collections of all manner! This means he skims through his boxes for the obvious valuable books, then throws the remainder into his bargain section- where he prices comics at 3 for a dollar.... This is a great place to find issues to put together runs and to find lesser known keys and obscure titles with value! I grabbed about 50 books from him this weekend - mostly X-Men and Amazing Spider Man issues to fill gaps in my collection, but also snagged an X-Factor#1, George Perez's Sirens #1E Sketch variant, 4 copies of Spider Man 2099, and 2 copies of Captain America vol5 #1 (first cameo of the Winter Soldier). I even picked up a copy of Wolverine #8 for $7 because I didnt have one yet, and bought my son some Garbage Pail Kids!!! I walked away with tons of comics and spent all of $25 or so!
