Haircut, Breakfast and Comics
Yesterday, after pouring over our Loot Crate “loot,” my son and I headed out for the Saturday ritual – haircut, breakfast and comics.
After the haircut and breakfast, we visited the local comics shop to pickup my pull list. While grabbing my weekly comics, I skimmed through a box of a new purchase. I snagged a couple of cool books on the cheap. Little man grabbed an issue of Arrow and a new FunkoPop.
From my normal pulls:
In the pull pile was also the new Darth Vader series from Marvel. I can’t help it that I am a variant freak. I tell myself constantly that there are better ways to spend money (how ’bout some Silver?). As a Star Wars geek, I find these covers fun and invigorating. Skottie Young, blank cover, action figure and regular cover. I nearly grabbed the Alex Ross variant also, but I just couldn’t pull the trigger on a $50 variant.
For those who have followed my recent posts, you have noticed my fondness for the Welcome Home variants. Well, today, I picked up the last three I needed to complete my set. If I can get my iPhone to do that panoramic thing, I will post a picture of all the covers together.
I mentioned earlier about some cheap books… Well, the first part of the Bloodstone story in Captain America and the first two parts of the Judas Contract in Tales of the Teen Titans were surprising to find. Bloodstone arc introduces Crossbones to the Marvel Universe. He is allegedly playing a major role in the upcoming Captain America movie. The Judas Contract brings the DC Universe the first appearance of Dick Grayson as Nightwing. Three World War Hulk crossovers were also found in that collection. Not a bad haul.
