    Hobby shop in town is getting out of comics and going to RPGS and CCGs. So comics are heavily discounted.

    Elfquest vol 3 and 4.Those Starblaze tpbs from wwhat the 80s. was 5 for the two total
    Prophet remission vol 1-that revamped prophet run was 3 bucks
    Planetary vol 2-3 bucks
    2001 a space oddesy issue 9-2 bucks.

    They got a Police Comics issue with a nice Plastic Man cover I got my eye on. Still wanting 20 for it. Which is a decent price. But I know it has been in the shop for years. I wait a bit might get it for 10 or 15 from the owner.

    I picked this one up for under $4. The cover is detached and completely split, held together by two pieces of tape. But it really shows well and I love little surprises like this one. Click image for larger version

    I am trying to convince my wife to start getting me the Deluxe Edition Berserk leatherbounds, since she liked the original anime series when we watched it, but she kinda freaked at the price for the number of books.
    If you were local, you could have it, but postage to Canada would be more than the book is worth by quite a margin.

    Those Berserk books are gorgeous, my son has been collecting them, but yep, they are not cheap by any stretch.

    I also grabbed a copy of Marvel Fanfare #18 over the weekend, the one with the Frank Miller cover and interior art... got it home and realized I already had a copy. Oops.

    The place I go to doesn't seem to pay attention to what they put in their $1 bins a lot of the time. A guy I was with pulled out a Supergirl & the Legion Of Superheroes #23 the same day for $0.50, and that book goes for a few hundred dollars because of the Adam Hughes cover. So sometimes you just get lucky there.
