This week–for the "main haul"–certainly proved to be extremely small in its way.
At the first shop, I snagged…Action Comics. The 50%-off TPB bargain bins–from which I’d anticipated getting a couple more volumes if they were still there–were completely gone. Period. So I wound up sticking with just the single issue…
…such that this week, I paid with cash out of pocket, because it didn’t seem worth using the debit card for a single DC issue.
Given how much I’d mentally budgeted, and how little that one issue was, I had no problem going to the second shop.
Which had two issues I wanted that the first did not: God Country and the Vixen issue. And since even those added together were still rather low…
I snagged 3 more of the figurines I was interested in, rather than "risk" their being gone by the weekend.
Bizarro actually has the "Bizarro #1" placard but that had come off in the bag, and I neglected to realize until after I was done with blog-photos.
I’d forgotten about this old Batgirl costume…it SORTA justifies the current Bat-emblem that I don’t like on Batman’s costume at present.
Unfortunately…in looking for a couple things online, I discovered there’s a Tim Drake Robin figurine from this line that I’m very interested in now…sadly, it costs more than these three were combined!
And a $40 statue I’d been interested in is apparently going for over $200 at the moment.
Such is life.
Such is stuff.
And hey…these figurines will be seen a lot more than any Marvel single-issue #1s, proving to be the far superior value there!
