Medium score. LCS across the river was having a sale. Many 50 cent and $1 books. Found 53 in the 50 cent boxes and another 35 in the $1 boxes. Mix of very recent stuff and older stuff. Here’s what I got

Amazing Spidey 3. The newest series. The FF variant cover.
American Vampire 29. 10 issues to go.
Avengers Assemble Season 2, issue 2. Cool Iron Man cover.
Black Panther 9. Variant cover.
Cable 152, 155. Still need 7 more issues. Malin’s art sucks. HE SUCKS!
Dark Nights:Metal 1, 2. Not sure if this series is “Dark Nights” or “Metal”. Fuck you, DC. Pick a name and stick with it.
Deathblow/Wolverine oneshot. Not sure whether to put this in the ‘D’s’ or in the Wolverine box. Leaning towards the latter.
Defenders 10. Just need issue 8 from the Bendis run.
Domino 2. From the newest series.
Fables 147.
Falcon 3. 4 more issues to go.
Green Lantern 179. From 1984.
Hulk 709-711, 713-716. The Legacy renumbered series. Just missing issue 712. Didn’t have these on my list, but I’m 85% sure I don’t have them. Might have got them all at a previous sale and didn’t remember which is why they weren’t on my list. Hmmmm...
A Lone Ranger issue.
Monsters Unleashed 1, 12. The first and last issue of the ongoing. Still need 7 and 11.
Old Man Logan 39, 42, 43, 46.
Old Man Hawkeye 7.
Quicksilver 4.
Rocket Racoon 6. Not sure is this is the right issue 6 that I’m missing, since the little rodent has had like 12 ongoings in the last 5 years and none have lasted past issue 8. But the cover didn’t look familiar, so that’s a good sign.
Spider-Gwen 30.
Thor 11 and 12. Turns out I had these and the 11 and 12 I need are from the Thor series before this one. Goddammit.
Thunderbolts 8. Just need issue 4. MALIN IS A SHITTIER ARTIST THAN LIEFELD. It must be mentioned every time. Because he sucks.
Transformers Drift 1. Blank variant cover.
Transformers/Angry Birds 1, 2. Ugh. I’m mad this exists. I’m madder that I’m a TF completist. Ugh. Still need *barrrf* 3 and 4.
Venom 159. 2nd print variant. Because I need the issue.
Wetworks/Vampirella oneshot.
Bucky Barnes:Winter Soldier 4. Finished the series.
A couple issues of those Hunt for Wolverine minis. Wolverine is back and they’re milking the fuck out of it. Not falling for it. Except when I can get the books super cheap.
X-Men Grand Design Second Genesis 2.
X-Men Wakanda Forever 1.
Some True Believer Wolverine issues.

And then a bunch of DCNu52 and Rebirth issues.

Very nice. My big scores have been Amazon & Indigo deals on the Epic collection trade paperbacks - I'm working at filling out my Marvel Silver Age stories so I can read them all "month by month", like I would have had I been alive & interested back then.

I can’t remember the last time I actually “re-read” an older story arc or series.
Does reading DKR or Watchmen multiple times count?

But apart from that, I think it was when I pulled my old GIJoe collection out and binge read Hama’s run from 1 to 100. And that was back in 2000 or 2001.

Which is exactly why I want to get rid of some books/runs.
I know I'll never read them again, even though I generally enjoyed them the first time.

No one should need an excuse to draw chicks with big titties. On that note, I saw a Battle Chasers* video game in the clearance bin at WalMart - that's a name I haven't heard in a long time. A long time.

*Joe Madureira did Battle Chasers in the 90's following his run on X-Men, and he left a promising career in comics to work on videogames, at least back then.
