    Forgot I pre-ordered this way back on Jan. 11, after which DC delayed the heck out of the release, but it turns out Books-a-Million is shipping my copy today; with any luck, it'll be at the house when I get off work tomorrow afternoon. Perfect cover for the holiday season, I'd say --

    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."

    A couple of Rocks.

    This leaves just 3 comics published by DC in the entire 1960s that I don't yet own.
    G.I. Combat #87 (1st Haunted Tank)
    Star Spangled War #90 (1st War That Time Forgot)
    Falling in Love #41 (Random issue of no particular significance)

    Nice picks ups Mike. Pretty amazing progress on your DC collection too, with only 3 to go for the 60's.

    Dan B.-I just saw that Strange Adventures cover earlier this week, and I couldn't remember where, but it dawned on me it was in the cover of the week contest over in the community forums. It's a wonderfully creepy Christmas cover.

    and yet another Cole for pmpknface. I've still only ever seen one Cole cover in person and held it in my hands, and it was just after I came here and saw you collecting them, so it kind of stood out to me for that reason. I can't remember the exact cover, I think it was Oz related, but not sure, or a Classics Jr. cover I found in a stack with an Oz book, but the Oz book and Cole cover are stuck together in my head for some reason.

    Stopped off at a different LCS, The Comic Stop in Watertown, MA on my way home. Needed the recent ASM 700.1 that didn't get dropped into my local folder. Also decided to pick up:

    - Defenders 7
    - Giant Size Master of Kung Fu #3 (now I have 1-4)
    - Tales to Astonish #84

    No reason, just because they were there. With the ASM, $20.

    Arak, Son of Thunder
    Arion, Lord of Atlantis
    Arion the Immortal
    Nathaniel Dusk (first series)
    Star Hunters

    total of 43 comics the bulk were issues of Arak as I needed 30+ issues to complete the run), none costing more than $1.20 most under a buck.

    No jaw dropping oohs and aahs books, but a lot of solid reading for the coming year.

    Santa Lonestar's postal elves just delivered this, so I now have complete runs of...



    Arak, Son of Thunder



    Arion, Lord of Atlantis

    the Arion the Immortal mini series

    the first Nathaniel Dusk mini

    and...



    Two of those were cited as goals in my 2013 list, so actually got them done just under the wire.

    Awesome purchases! It sometimes requires a bit of patience waiting for the issues you want but I think that helps fuel anticipation and makes you appreciate them all the more when you find those issues you want so cheap.

    I agree. However, one unfortunate aspect to used book store shopping is the quality of the stuff you find. More often than not, I'll find books that I've been looking for, but they are so torn up and stained that I can't add them to my collection.

    I just bought Amazing Spider-Man #123. I love the way Gil Kane and John Romita drew Luke Cage in this issue.
    I had the reprint of this issue in Marvel Tales for years but I wanted the original.

    I see a lot of that at used bookstores. I came across a bronze age run of Spider-Man comic books a few months ago but all of them were badly damaged (some water damage, or heavily creased.) It really varies tremendously across the scale of grading from poor to near mint/mint comic books.

    Is the final issue of ARAk hard to find? I've taken the complete series to comics shows off and on for the last twenty years (in my quarter boxes), and the only one I've ever sold was the final issue.

    I'm always amazed at the number of water damaged comics you seem to mention coming across. Just out of curiosity, do you live in an area that floods a lot, or has torrential rains?
