Love that Atomic Skull guy!!! Is he dead? How come they never reused that guy?
Picked up another LB Cole book last night: POPULAR TEEN-AGERS 23 CGC 5.0
Found these at the antique toy store downtown. I thought I'd never find an Inferior 5 #1 in great shape and at a decent price.
some tips i recommend (where possible) ** get to know the owner/manager of the stores as often they have stock they dont put out and will put it aside for you or at the very least let you have first dibs on it. also ask if their prices are negotiable? or at the least could they give you a discount if you buy more? or come in regularly? also ask them how often they get stuff in as it can vary dramatically store to store.
anyways, great pics --- glad you found the comic you so much wanted -- even better that it was at a decent price (those are the best kind imho)!
I've shopped there for a few years now and know the owners pretty well. I'm sure there are times they buy comics knowing I may want them.
Thanks for the tips, though.
And I'd like to ask if you've read the Protectors or Arrow comics. I've seen them but never picked any up. I might if they're any good. Also, why did you buy 3 issues of Bombast? Just curious because I'm fairly certain the resale value on those isn't much.
also i don't always think consciously so if i see something i like i end up often choosing the same thing over and over again. all up i bought a large box of comics silver age through to modern. spent more than i had intended but the manager gave me a nifty discount which was most welcome. plus i can always give the doubles to a lcs or charity.
A bunch of Byrne and Arcudi Doom Patrol issues

Pull List; seems to be too long to fit in my sig...
OMG! I see an appearance of.... THE RINGER! Sweet.........
One of two copies of Iron Man (1968) No.2 that I recently acquired. This one would be somewhere around a FINE+ or an increment higher and is the lesser grade of the two copies (the other is a VF+). I took this copy as well because it only cost $12.19. Some people's indifference about these books make me smile. I've already been offered $30 for it but I declined
1 Kings 21:23
And of Jezebel also spake the LORD, saying, The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.
Great pickup. Those early IM's are very affordable.
