The Weekly Haul – Week of May 24th, 2017 (part two)

I ordered The Untold Legend of the Batman vintage mmpb via Amazon last week.

What arrived is considerably more beaten and battered than the condition described in the 3rd-party listing…for which I solidly blame Amazon itself and its disgustingly-shoddy packaging! (and which was FOLDED to jam into a mailbox rather than being BOXED so that it could actually be protected in shipping).

But having this at all now re-unites a two-book Batman set from my youth:

These were two key books for me as a kid in informing my knowledge of Batman and illustrating some of the villains and whatnot (as well as being BOOKS and not JUST single-issue comics!).

Meanwhile, Half-Price Books was doing a 20% off sale, and I made it to a location I hadn’t been to in a couple months, and after being horrified at a $250 pricetag on an X-Men hardcover, and outrageous extreme-prices on a couple other hardcovers, I opted to "complete" my Batman Eternal paperbacks collection. I already had vol. 1, and snagged vols. 2-3. Now I’m just missing Batman and Robin Eternal vol. 2 from the 5-volume run of the two series!

I also found six vintage Highlander mmpb novels and figured that–for the price of 3-4 Marvel comics, I’d pull the trigger on them. I know I’d owned Scimitar at some point and possibly one of the others (can’t remember which) but never in the past had this many of the books!


I snagged some other stuff this weekend as well, but I’ll cover that in another post, as my phone is presently busy transferring almost 90gb of photos to backup! (And this post is itself rather late, all things considered!)
