          • I paid more than $1 each, haha, but I did pick up a Savage She-Hulk #1, and a Conan The Barbarian #2 yesterday. Only a few issues away from completing the Barry Windsor-Smith Conan run at this point and with a few decent cons coming up this month, I might just finish it soon.

            On the bargain bin side of things, I grabbed a small stack of House Of Mystery books, a Doorway To Nightmare #2, Absolute Carnage #4 and Batman '89 #1.

                Yeah I enjoyed it, it's only six issues (I think) so I'll probably track down the other five to complete the story.

                      I have no idea why this keeps happening since the upgrade! It's frustrating. I'll DM you and see if that works.

                      Lemiere's Moon Knight run is really good, btw.

                        • Went to Big Apple Con today, it was shoulder to shoulder and when it's that packed I don't enjoy myself as much, so I didn't stay very long but I did grab a few decent books on the cheap.

                          Tales From The Fantastical Crimes Unit #1
                          Astonishing Tales #5
                          Midnight Tales #17
                          Sleepwalker #1
                          Zap Comix #0 (6th print)
                          Zap Comix #5
                          Ghost Rider Vol. 2 #2
                          The Original Swamp Thing Saga #1 (I already have the issues this reprints but Wrightson did a new cover piece for it, so I grabbed it)

                          My big score, however, which weren't all that cheap, was a beautiful high grade set of Corben's Fantagor #1, 2, 3 and 4. #1 is a second print, the rest are firsts. Tough to find, let alone in almost perfect shape.

                              ... really like that it's mag sized.

                              Also, is anyone familiar with the Lemire Animal Man run? There were a bunch in the bin that i mildly regret not grabbing.

                                I wound up with the last two tpbs of that New 52 run by Lemire and I wasn't all that impressed. Maybe the others were better but I don't feel the need to seek the others out. YMMV.
