          Yeah, had never actually seen this before. It has an add in the back for a goth dominatrix hotline number, haha.

          Correct.

          Boom, though I'm getting close to finishing the Epic run, only need 3 more issues.

          I have the graphic novel and issue #1, but don't have issue #2. I'll find it for a $1 some day. A shame it was never finished.

            In 92 or so I found Void Indigo #2 in the cheap bins. Maybe paid a quarter. But was one that got lost when one of the now ex wives set the collection on fire.

            MCS had both issues cheap few years ago. So ordered them. The OGN I will end up finally just going to EBAY and getting. Right now trying to finish my Rick Veitch collection before going to Gerber.

            • The GN spiked in value a while back as it was covered on a YouTube channel and got some attention. Too bad it was never finished.

              • Yea figure I might get lucky find a beat but complete copy for not too bad.

                Worst case I bite the bullet and sell something from the collection and use that profit to buy a high grade copy of the OGN.

                • It's still around cheap if you're patient, I think I paid $4 for my copy a few months ago.

                        • I went to the Joseph Koch warehouse yesterday, figured I'd hang around for an hour or so before going to visit a friend but that plan fell through so I wound up dollar bin digging for three hours. If you've ever been there, you know it's insane. Racks and racks, ceiling to floor, of comics, some organized, plenty not. Piles of old records, posters, books, men's magazines and toys. It is a literal warehouse in an industrial part of Brooklyn and the whole place stinks like a litter box because there are cats everywhere, presumably to deal with mice. I didn't take any pictures, but here's a video to give you an idea of how insane this place is.



                          So yeah, it's crazy in there but if you want to dig, it's a good place to do that. They have hundreds of $1 bin boxes and then plenty of higher end books as well. The higher end stuff gets priced at the counter and is usually more or less eBay prices, but sometimes they do bigger sales that are worth hitting.

                          Anyway, I only hit the $1 bins yesterday and here's what I grabbed:

                          Violent Tales #1

                            • Was at a show yesterday and grabbed The Many Ghosts Of Dr. Graves #22 and 23 for $1 a piece, and then some friends hooked me up with Showcase #61, 61 and 64 (Spectre issues) and Star Fighters #2 and 3 (rad Ken Landgraf sci-fi craziness starring a guy named Axe McCord who has the universe's only laser powered guitar).
