    This place near me, the Nostalgia Zone, is having a really big SALE since they're changing locations. 30-50% off most things. Their main focus is older comics and collections, but they have a bunch of books and DVDs too, mostly relating to things from the '40s to the '70s. They do mail-order. Here's their website.

    I stopped over today and grabbed:
    the Steranko SHIELD collection (with the subpar recoloring) for $8
    Kurtzman's Jungle Book for $10
    X-Men Visionaries: Chris Claremont for $8

    I thought that last one started Claremont's X-Men from the beginning like the Byrne FF Visionaries or Simonson's Thor. It's actually a random smattering of issues instead, but I'm okay with that.

    Will do. Might be a bit, but I will add it to my read soon pile.

    I just got back from a week out of town, and arrived home to find a pile of packages filled with comics. So that's nice.

    While on my trip, I did visit a comic store that had quite a nice selection, though prices were a little aggressive for my taste, likely because there wasn't another comic store for an hour in any direction. But there was some good stuff and I did drop some cash, mainly on Archie stuff. I was very tempted by a low grade copy of Superman #47 they had for $50; a piece was missing out of the lower right front cover, and it had rusty staples, but it was complete and presented well. I think maybe I should have bought it.

    Anyway, I'll be posting some pics over the next couple of days as I sort through my arrivals. Here's the highlight so far:




    The Action #255 was part of an ebay lot of six back issues I paid $10 for (including shipping) so my price for it was $1.67. The Superman #129 (first Lori Lemaris) came in a comic exchange from another forum I visit, so I didn't actually pay anything for it. Needless to say, I am pretty chuffed over these two arrivals. Hurray!
    At last, Boy Comics finally gets its own website!

    My large Lonestar order arrived today (sans one book that was supposed to be there, but a phone call to them resulted in an immediate credit for the missing book, so I was pleased with the customer service).

    The highlight for me was getting three DC books I had as a kid but hadn't seen or read in over 30 years including:

    Superman #287


    With the order, I now only need 6 more issues of Master of Kung Fu to complete the run, 1 issue of Richard Dragon Kung Fu Fighter to complete that run, and completed the following series:

    Grimoire
    Amazing High Adventure
    Kirby's Eternals
    Devil Dinosaur
    New Teen Titans (1980)
    Deadman ('85 reprint series)
    Martian Manhunter: American Secrets
    Kull (1982)
    Kull (1983)
    Wulf the Barbarian
    Flash Gordon (DC)
    James Bond: Permission to Die
    Breed III
    Mythstalkers
    Micronauts (Image)
    Micronauts (Devil's Due)

    plus added several more Conan issues to my stash, started on the issues of Unexpected with Madame Xanadu stories, and added 7 Showcase Presents volumes to my shelf (Adam Strange, Atom Vol. 1 & 2, Hawkman Vol. 1 and 2, and Martian Manhunter Vol. 1 & 2). Man do I have a lot of (hopefully) good reading ahead of me.

    Thanks for mentioning this sale. They have some DELL FOUR COLOR and MAVERICK issues I've been seeking.

    Is that address(36th and Lake) listed the new store? Didn't they have one on Hennepin Ave?

    Those are some nice issues man. Great 1st app of Lori Lemaris.

    Agreed about the SHIELD collection - really horrible job they did on that one. I'd really like to see that Kurtzman book.

    That's their current address; they told me they're moving "just around the corner," though, so I guess it's sort of their new place.

    You might be thinking of Comic College, which is on Hennepin and just a few blocks off Lake. I think they're somehow related.

    I'm about halfway through the Steranko book so far. I can ignore the coloring most of the time, but there's the occasional awful gradient or amateur choice that really takes me out of things. I don't understand why they tout the book as such a great example of '60s art and then try to make it look like an awful example of Photoshop art.

    I haven't cracked the Kurtzman book yet, but a quick Google Image search makes me pretty excited to eventually getting to it.

    Don't have a pic...but picked up a HC of Ultimate Spider-Man Volume 2 which collects issues 14-27...in like new condition for only $6.75

    Either everyone else already has these HCs or I was in the right place at the right time...

    I plan to fill up an entire book case with HCs by end of year if I keep getting good deals.

    I think there must be a lot of those out there. When I was working at a library, I saw a bunch of copies of the first few HCs (the big ones with 13 or so issues) going for between $2 and $10. I snapped them up for the library. I assume there are just a ton of copies of them out there.
