    Then in the back of the box is 4 TPBS. Grabbed 3

    Buffy The Vampire Slayeer Omnibus vol 1 Dark Horse
    Jimmy Olsen Adventures by Jack Kirby Vol 2
    Kingdom Come TPB

    Grabbed those and left
    Dark Knight Strikes Again TPB

    No prices on any of the TPBs. Ask them,get told to make an offer. "5 each so 15 total?" And they accepted
    "The popcorn you're eating has been pissed in. Film at 11".


    • Found issues #2 - 9 of Metal Hurlant (not the original French magazine, ha) in the $1 bin yesterday.
      Rock! Shock! Pop!


      • A few $1 pick ups from this weekend...

        Darkman Vs. Army Of Darkness #1, 2 (this might suck but they were actually $0.50 each so I gambled)
        Wolverine/Hulk #1 (Sam Kieth!)
        Defenders #74 (rad Foolkiller cover)
        Ragemoor #4 (Corben art, last issue I needed)
        Spectacular Spider-Man #27 (1st Miller Daredevil art, Whitman edition so less valuable but I don't care for $1)
        DC Comics Presents #52 (1st Ambush Bug and 1st unofficial US appearance of Judge Dredd)
        Fangraphix #3 (not 100% sure what this is, but it looks amazingly awful)
        G.I. Joe #216 (I don't usually care about G.I. Joe but this is an E.C./Two-Fisted Tales homage variant cover)
        Hero For Hire #9 (lower grade but still, it's Luke Cage fighting Dr. Doom in 1973 so it can't possibly be bad)
        The Shadow #8, #10 (70's DC series, only 2-3 issues away from finishing this run)
        Rock! Shock! Pop!


        • Luke Cage asks Dr Doom "Where's my money, honey?". Still funny fifty years later.
