My Comic Book Haul Yesterday and Today — A List
Normally, my monthly comic reading diet consists of Batman, Superman, Batman and Robin, Red Robin and Batgirl. I might buy another comic or two, but those are my regulars.
Well, I went to the shop (Galaxy Comics) yesterday and walked out with a pretty big stack of books.
- Batman/Superman #75
- Wolverine Saga (Marvel freebie)
- Batman Beyond #2 (for my kind)
- Toy Story #-something (for my other kid)
From the dollar bin, all these #1 reprints:
The Talisman #0
Captain America #1 (for my wife)
Action Comics #858
Marvel Zombies #1
The Walking Dead #1
The Flash: Rebirth #1
Detective Comics #854
Savage Dragon #1
I came home yesterday, went through my pile, read Spawn and Savage Dragon and noticed the Wolverine and Batman/Superman. I thought, Wait, this isn’t my stuff. You see, I have a mailbox there and they just put the stuff I collect in there for me to pick up at my convenience. When I got to the counter with my stack of dollar books, the other comics were already in a bag. I just assumed what was in there was my usual books.
Anyway, I went back to today. The Wolverine was a freebie (so I kept it, of course) and the Batman/Superman #75 was an error because I originally asked for the regular Batman and Superman series to be added to my monthly books over the phone. I guess the guy took it as the team up book instead of the two separate books like I meant. Completely understandable mistake because the Batman/Superman book is usually refered to as Superman and Batman or vice versa. But I kept the Batman/Superman because a) I like the owner and b) it’s the 75th issue and has some bonus stuff in it. No worries. It’s all good.
So I left there today with Batman #702 and Superman #702, Hellboy #1 from the dollar bin plus a pack of bags and boards.
Good haul. Really happy.
