Me & the Sidekick
After the postman dropped off three packages, this urge to buy more comics swelled inside me. So I grabbed my trusty sidekick (the boy) and off we went to one of the local comic shops. While there, my son decided he wanted some books. He picked up a run of the comic version of the Flash television series. It is a kind of cheesy book, but if he is reading, I am happy.
I didn’t buy anything earth shattering. I was bummed that they were sold out of the first issue of Silk. This thing is on fire. The only copy they had was the Skottie Young variant. After a couple of GI Joe variants I was done.
Remember that I mentioned three packages in the opening sentence? Oh yeah. Again, nothing crazy, but filling in some gaps.
Legends #1-6 from the CGC Forums. These books came hail from Canada, but with Amanda Waller and the Suicide Squad heating up, I decided to pay the extra in postage.
An eBay seller had a full run of the original Marvel Star Wars broken into groups for sale. I bid on all of them, but I only won one. I was shocked to see some of the prices these books ended up going for. I did not have any of these issues in my collection, so it worked out for me.
Another eBay seller had a bunch of books that I thought I would win. I decided to bid on some of his other stuff because I knew I would win much of what I bid on. Yep, you guessed it. Lost each and every one except for New Mutants #16. A great book for 99 cents, but not when you get nailed with $6 in shipping. Still, first appearance of Warpath goes in the longbox.
