Can't quite put my finger on it; the colours are too glaring, and look wrong for the paper, but it isn't just that.

    Most recently, I bought a few odds and ends on-line:

    Weird World #1 (thanks to Roquefort Raider, who sent me a copy of #3, allowing me to realise I wanted the rest of this ERB adaptation)

    Chamber of Chills (forget the issue # - nice Frank Brunner art)

    Vampirella #42 (last specific issue I was looking for of the this Warren series, though I'll probably end up finding there are others I'll want)

    Hot Stuf' #1 (thanks to whoever mentioned this b&w mag here on the Board a few months back)

    several issues of Alien Worlds (once again, thanks to the Board for reminding me of this nice 80s series)

    several issues of the Trimpe/Severin Hulk
    I recently picked up the full run of these as well. At one point I had drawn a few of the covers I liked them so much. Pretty good series and not that expensive.

    My best most recent Classic Comics gets. Bravados #1 by Skywald, Butch Cassidy #1 by Skywald, and Wolverine 1980's minnie series 2,3. Now I just need #1 to complete it for about the 6th time. This time I think I will hold on to them :)

    I waited and got all of the Simonson Thor stuff in the tpb's. Then a few months ago I bought a HUGE lot of comics, many of which were Thor's and now I have 95% of the run in issues too.

    This year I've gone to about 3 local shows and that's more than the last three years combined. I usually get back issues from ebay these days.

    I've been busy with work so I haven't been posting much but I did got to a local show yesterday. It was just individual dealers with 80s, 90s and recent backstock. I brought $40 thinking I'd plug some holes... And then I won the $50 door prize and set myself loose of the fifty cent bins... So for $30 total I bought the following with 90% of it VF or a little better...

    Animal Man 80-81, 83-84, I only need 5 issues to complete this series

    Avengers 228, 231, 239, 241, 249, 258, 337, 339-341

    West Coast Avengers 6-7, 13, 16

    Flash Gordon (DC Mini-series form 88) 2-4, 7-8, I have the whole thing now so I'll read it in a sitting.

    Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider Man - 86, 88, 95-96, 98, 105

    Web of Spider Man Annual 1

    Blackhawk 1992 Special and issue 16 of the 1989 series.

    Fantastic Four 297-306

    X-Factor 3-4, 7-8, 11-12, 16-17, Annual 1

    X-Men 284

    Conan the King 36, Conan 169 and 196

    A deluxe King Kull 1 from 1982

    Batman 455

    Adventures of Supeman 428

    The Comet Man limited series 1-6

    Balder the Brave 1-4

    Black Panther limited series from 88 1-4

    X-Men and the Micronauts 1, 3-4

    Marvel Team Up 83-85, 134, 142-143, 146

    Marvel Two In One 96, 99

    The Thing 12, 17

    Defenders 124 and 142

    Legion of Super Heroes 312

    New Titans 50

    Red Sonja (1982) 1

    And probably 1 or 2 more that slip my mind... There sure is a lot of stuff from 85-90 in the dollar bins these days...

    I just bought the 4-issue Kurt Busiek/Trina Robbins Legend of Wonder Woman series off of ebay for $9 shipped.

    At last, Boy Comics finally gets its own website!

    For $9, I hope Trina delivers them to her yourself.

    (Kidding. I'm pretty sure I paid a lot less a few years back, but I'm also sure my copies couldn't pass for brand-spanking-new; those copies look great.)

    You should feel honored, Scott -- Kurt pretty much crawled out of his hospital bed (OK, he probably has a laptop or some sort of handheld instrument of the Dark One) to post that.

    OK, I exaggerate. But not by much. (Last I checked Facebook [I've been busy here at work most of the day, since I've got the next 2 days off], he was at home.)

    Great to see you feeling a bit better, Kurt!

    I'm at home, at least.

    Not sure I'd say I'm feeling better -- I'm eating lunch, and it seems like way more work than it should be -- but I'm getting there...
