  • This morning we saw the mail carrier coming up to the house with packages. She said this was her second trip today (Sunday) and another truck might be coming later.
    "The popcorn you're eating has been pissed in. Film at 11".


    • Yeah, I'm waiting for the new issue of Back Issue, shipped weeks ago (from NC, one state away) and still in the wind. I also have a gift for someone from Amazon that's supposed to arrive before Christmas, it damn well better.
      I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.


      • I had a package ship from Rhode Island on 12/11, no update to the tracking at all until today and that update? It has arrived in Sherveport, LA. Not sure how or why a package would go to LA from RI on it's way to NY, but at least there was a tracking update!
        Rock! Shock! Pop!


        • I got the package I was waiting on about an hour ago. Also realized this year I bought a pile of TPB/OGN/Hardcovers...that I have just let sit on my unread pile. Tempted to do a top 10 list of them based on a flipthru of each.


          • You should do it!
            Rock! Shock! Pop!


            • There it is sir. 10 trades I bought in 2020 and haven't read. Techincally after I filmed this i started reading the SiP trade.


              • I remember really liking that Unknown Soldier stuff.

                Saga of the Victims looks killer, never heard of that before but nice art.

                I read a lot of SIP first run and enjoyed it but eventually lost interest.

                What'd I get at the LCS today? Why thank you for asking...

                • Well not from a comic shop but I figured at this cheap of a price I had to count them.

                  A Small Killing Dark Horse printing-$2.43
                  The Art of Reboot Hardcover-$3.28

                  Spent close to 45 minutes digging thru the pile of books at Dirt Cheap since they were heavily discounted.


                  • I hit up my LCS, as well as a sidewalk sale a guy in the Bronx was having, and a flea market in NJ today.

                    • I love that first vol of Moon Knight. I need to get a run going. Got the 2 or 3 Marvel Essentials vols,but those are b/w.

                      Locally at the 5 shops in driving distance the cheap bins are nothng but 90s glut stuff. There is one shop that is about 20 minutes further away that has great cheap bins.

                      So pretty much my cheap comic finds will be at flea markets and thrift stores. Dirt Cheap just happened to get in a huge stack of comic tpbs.


                      • Made one last trip to a comic shop on the 23rd, to get in before another COVID lock down on the 26th.

                              • Got a text telling me the comic shop in town had just bought and sorted a collection"Saw Dave dumping a bunch of stuff into the cheap bins." Had store credit so for 25 cents each got.

                                Then saw they had added a new Golden Age comic to the wall
                                Famous Funnies #149-Was 5 bucks but I'll pay 5 bucks for an ok shape golden age title.

                                Let the shop hit up Dirt Cheap,and found TPB of Brat Pack for $5. Now I own 3 copies of this TPB.
