Not So Free Comic Book Day


Last weekend included Free Comic Book Day 2014 on Saturday, May 3rd. While the “free” side didn’t work out QUITE as planned, I did wind up scoring some stuff I would not have if I hadn’t been out with a friend hitting 5 shops and a Half-Priced Books in one day:

Since Batman Eternal #s 1-4 were all available in one go, AND “only” $2.99 rather than that frustrating $3.99 “everything” seems to be these days, I decided to take ’em as a “set” to give the thing a shot. I’m also all about Image‘s $9.99 vol. 1s, and will try most anything at that price point. Half Price Books had the New Avengers vol. 1 OHC for $9.99 as well, so I figured: why not?

I also found Conan the Savage #4–a magazine/comic I’ve been trying to find for over a decade. Also picked up the “classic Valiant” Magnus #s 7 & 8…a bit pricey at $6/ea, but still well below my max of $10 for any single back issue of anything in 25 years. Found the old Bizarro’s World TPB for cover price (even all these years later) and decided to snag that as well.

Also snagged some 50-cent-bin comics–primarily a bunch of the post-Zero Hour #0 issues from DC from 1994 and a bag/boarded copy of the original The Ray mini-series #s 1-6.
