I got to the booth up front that always has a mixture of toys and books.
Looked through the one booth that is packed with books. Nothing that I wanted.Well that isn't true found one book I wanted. But it was a hardback and my shelves for hardcovers are already overflowing.
Finally I got to the back corner booth that usually has comics. The box had a sign saying they were all now $1 each or if you bought at least 10 then they became 50 cents each. I started digging down into the box. Hoping to find 10 comics I wanted.
Another book closer to my full run of the New Universe stuff.I have owned this issue at least 3 times. But keep losing my copies in moves.This comic always felt like a more realistic take on the X-men. Mark Grunwald wrote most of if not all of this series.
Two of the New Universe titles I never read much of. Plus another 2 books closer to my full run.Justice from my almost 30 year ago memory was an alien cop or something. He could create an energy sword with one hand and the other created a shield. He was stuck on Earth. IIRC he had amnesia.
Kickers Inc was a super powered football team. I think they were also bounty hunters. The quarterback of the team got a feature role in the Pitt,Draft and War mini series or one shots.This was the title from the original 8 that caught the most crap.
By Starlin and Wrightson,I have wanted to read this mini series for a bit. I didn't notice until I got home that the price sticker was on the book instead of the bag. Meh it was 50 cents.
This gorgeous Dave Stevens' cover is what caught my eye. For 50 cents,which is also the original cover price,I will buy any comic with Stevens art. And Airboy is another title I have slowly been collecting a full run of.
I miss read the issue numbers. Already got both of these issues in trade paperbacks.
Well I needed to more comics to make it 10. So much of the box was early Image stuff. Lots of Cyberforce and Youngblood. Then I found the next book.
Seems to be a science fiction series. Published by Aircel,back before they got bought up by Malibu.
Needing one more comic I found the next one at the very bottom of the box.I have never heard of the comic,the company or anyone that worked on it.
The art on the front cover isn't bad.Flipped it over and...
So I had 10 comics that will be $5 total. The three figures that are $2.50 each. So that is $7.50. Before taxes that is 12.50. I got to the register. The lady starts ringing me up. Now maybe the booth with the figures had a sale,but she told me my total was $9.35. I know she rang the comics up right. Because the other lady told her the comics were ten for $5.
Overall not a bad trip to Vendor's.The three figures are great. Might have to do a posting on them soon. Haven't read any of the comics yet,but the over sized one has my interest.
