      • Super Cops is another great 70s Red Circle series. Archie was trying to expand a bit in the 70s


        • Yeah lots of cool looking books, Ryan!

            Great finds Ryan. I love Cartoonist Kayfabe. Thanks to their videos I have added piles of books to my "Find in the cheap bins" list.

            So like over 10 years ago at a local auction I got 20 or so copies of some mid 70s era King Published Popeye giveaway comic. "Popeye Personal Service Careers" These were given away at schools back then. And the seller at the auction had been given a case of 50 copies. He wanted to sell all of them as one lot. I convinced him to "I'll give ya 20 bucks for all you got left and that metal vintage Jedi lunchbox right now." He agreed. Looked up the Popeye comic on Mycomicshop and they were selling copies for 30 bucks and offering 10 bucks for copies. I contacted them took a pile of picks and showed them i had 20 copies,all still sealed in the plastic bags they got shipped in. They agreed to buy them all for IIRC 8 bucks each.

            THat long rambling paragraph to establish that I still as of 6 days ago had like 20 bucks in credit at Mycomicshop.They emailed me about it since I hadn't logged in with that account in years. Went thru my wantlist and ordered a stack of stuff. All of which came in today. I paid on average 2 bucks a item.

            Arcomics Premiere Issue (1993) 1 FN-Color superhero anthology. I just remember seeing the ads for it in Wizard and it has a lenticular cover.
            Cheerleaders from Hell (1989) 1 FN-Calibur published title I had never heard of.
            Draculina Fear Book (1993 Draculina) 2 VG-Thinking this one has good interview with either HG lewis or Ray Dennis Steckler. PLus Lorissa McComas!!
            Ground Pound! Comix (1987) 1 FN-This was the first full on "underground comiX" I bought. Sure I had seen bits of Crumb stuff in reference books. Then in 89 or so in a 10 comics for a buck bin at Sincere Comics I Found this and grabbed it cause of the great cover. Somehow in the 30 plus years I never lost my copy of the comic...until 4 months ago I got a major burn mark on the cover cause my fan blew a ember out of the ashtray. Great collection of John Pound comic work.
            Official Comics Enquirer Swimsuit Price Guide (1993) 1 VG-In the late 90s I found the Fantaco published Comics Enquirer first issue. It was a clipart filled parody of 93 era Comic mags like Wizard. Never knew they did another issue. And Looks like I bought the only copy Lone Star had.
            Red Heat (1988) 1 FN-Blackthorne published comic book version of the Arnold/Jim Belushi movie. THe art is bad. But there is also a 3d version that I'm tempted to buy.
            Tender Flesh (1997 Draculina Publishing) 1 FN-I never knew Draculina did a fumettai comic book of Jess Franco's Tender Flesh film. Flipped thru it and it appears to follow the movie very closely. The pics used are b/w. And they hint at but don't show the scene where Analia Ivars mariantes a steak with urine. But this was cheap and a neat piece of Franco merch that I doubt many people have heard of.

            Thx all of yall. Reading this thread has me either hitting the LCS more often or going and checking out the sales online.


            • Newt, I love and have been using them steadily for the past 15 years or so. I've cleared out a ton of books from my closet of doom by trading to them.

                      • Wow nice finds for cheap sir. I have a sick need to get one copy of every Razor comic. All cause years ago I got a shitpile of near mint copies of issue 1 about 5 months before the 90s Bad Girl boom happened.

                        Made a nice profit that I used that year at few cons digging thru cheap bins.


                        • Yeah, if you timed that right you'd have come out with a nice chunk of change, that was an expensive book for a while there.
                          Rock! Shock! Pop!


                          • It was 30 or 35 when I sold them all off. Paid I think 50 cents a copy when I got them from some guy set up at a mall show.

                            Paid for my hotel room,con entrance fee and gave me a few bucks to drop in the dealers room.

                            I have speculated on comics 3 times. Razor was the only time I made a good quick profit.

                            The other two times,I was working at a shitty comic shop at the time, so when Spawn and Youngblood started I ordered a huge stack of each.

                            The Youngbloods of course I lost my money on. But Spawn I held onto,until the film came out. Sold them for a ok profit. Mostly getting 10 or 15 an issue.

                            Used the profits from that to rebag and re-board my then 75 longbox collection.

                            • I had a good chunk of Razor comics, most of them signed too. Alas I got rid of them in a mass purge before I moved. Just gave them away.

                              • Damn. While most of them aren't worth much they aren't that easy to find in my area.
