hi Scott, I'm sure you will be able to find them with time. These days I'm not really looking for any issues in particular myself, I tend to just buy something every now and then if the prices are very cheap. I think its all too easy to spend money these days what with all the temptations but I concentrate more on saving money.
Nice pick up Scott.
And I love that Kubert cover on the All American Men of War.
A lunatic is easily recognized...You can tell him by the liberties he takes with common sense...and by the fact that sooner or later he brings up the Templars.
JIM #112 is an extraordinary, key book, not only because of the first Hulk/Thor battle, but also because the entire brouhaha takes place between panels in Avengers #3!
Yup. JIM #112 is an "episode within an episode."
Realizing I had Avengers #3, I quickly decided that I also had, by default, JIM #112. And that was the end of my search.

It's not "classic", but it's more than 20 years old (1990) :
(i) a special X-Factor issue, "Prisoner of love", by Starlin and Guice :
Jackson Guice's art is amazing :
(ii) and "Wolverine : The Jungle adventure" by Simonson and Mignola :
I bought the two issues yesterday, in a little comics shop where I never went before...
Avengers, New Av., Mighty Av., Secret Av., Uncanny Av., Young Av., Inhumanity, Thor God of Thunder, Wolverine.
nice purchases Jean-Michel! I remember buying that Wolverine graphic novel in a bookstore several years ago for like a dollar. I think it was among the first comics I purchased which featured Wolverine.
Do a bunch of the Amalgam line at $1.00 each count?
Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Do you like 1984/1994 so far? I was thinking of collecting them, too. Never read any.
hi MajorHoy I think the Amalgam comics do count! I remember finding a bunch of them at a bookstore along with a box of Heavy Metal and Savage Sword of Conan and Mad Magazines. I ended up buying a bunch of Amalgam comics to use as readers before giving them away. They made for a fun distraction from the usual comics!
Maybe I'll dig those out soon.
Edited to add: after looking at a list of the one-shots, I remembered how awesome Thorion was too.
