End of the year dealer show. Filled a box but only come away with 258 books. That’s super low for me. I can usually cram 350-400 books in a box, but I’m just not finding stuff I need/don’t already have. A lot of them were bagged/boarded which also takes up space. Unfortunately(or ironically) much of the bags and boards were subpar and I’ll have to toss them anyway.
Anyway here’s what I got.
American Vampire 11, 21,23-25,30,33,34 and 5,7, and 10 from the 2ndCycle. Finished 2ndCycle and only 12 more to go from the first series.
Animal Man 61 and 88. Just need issue 89 and I’ll be done.
Argus 4,5. Just need issue 6.
New Avengers 6 variant cover.
Great Lakes Avengers 3, 4, 6. Just need issue 7 from the newest series.
Bane of the Demon 2.
Batman/Toyman 1. Finished the mini.
Black Widow 13. Finished the Edmonson/Noto series.
Catwoman 51. Finished the 90’s Balent series. But it was a newsstand issue and not DM so it’s not coming off the list just yet.
CWII:The Fallen. Some sort of retailer summit exclusive cover.
Clerks. The Comic, Holiday, and Lost Scene. All three oneshots.
DCPresents 46, 78, 84, 91, and 96. This series is slow going because it’s hard to find copies in decent enough condition.
Deadman:Dark Mansion 1-3. A three issue Prestige mini that must’ve come out in the last year or two.
Demon 43,44,47-52,56. From the 90’s series. Still about 14 issues and a couple annuals to find.
Doom Patrol 21-27,33,34,37-41,43-45,47,48,74,79,81-83,87. A nice dent in the ‘87 series. Still about 33 issues to find, including 1-20.
Doom Patrol 2,5,6. From the new Young Animal ongoing.
Elektra 2. Already had it. Darn it.
Fables 6, 120, 121, 126, 130. Still plugging away at this one.
Fantastic Four 7 variant cover.
Grendel Cycle. Found a much nicer copy this time.
Guardians of the Galaxy 59, 60.
Invisibles 10, 13 and 1 and 3 from the second series. Only 13 more issues from all three series.
17 issues of Legion of Super Heroes from the first series. 3 more from the ‘87 series.
A couple of LoSH mini series issues, but didn’t complete any single mini.
A couple Letter44 issues.
A couple Lone Ranger issues.
A few Marvel Advs issues featuring Spidey and Iron Man. I haven’t kept careful track of which of these I have and which I need.
A couple MiracleMan issues, one of which I already had.
Official Index to the Avengers 4.
Ray 9, 10. Just need issue 8.
Smiley the Psychotic Button Spring Break Special. Because it exists.
Spidey Classics 3,6,11,13,15,16. About half the reprint series. Half to go.
Starlord 2 from the 90s mini and Starlord 1 from the most recent series.
A bunch of Star Wars issues, mostly Tales of the Jedi and X-Wing Rogue Squadron.
Sunfire/Big Hero6 1. Finished the mini. But also, this is their first appearance and after the movie came out it was going for like $75-100. So finding it for a few dimes is....nice. Nice find.
Supreme 41-46. Tail end of the ongoing. Alan Moore.
Team Titans 22. FINALLY finished this one.
They’re Not Like Us 3-6,8,9.
An old issue of Turok
Ultimate X-Men 3. Just need issue 1. And 34 more Ultimate issues altogether. Mostly Spidey.
Uncanny Origins 14. Just need issue 13.
Vampirella/Dracula:The Cenennial. Prestige one shot.
Vampi 1/2 Wizard Special.
Venom Sign of the Boss 2.
Dejah Thoris 19-21.
War of the Gods 1. Not sure why I didn’t have this yet. Either that or why it was still on my list.
X 1. First issue of the relaunched ongoing from ‘13.
XOManowar 58-61, 66.
Some old Wizard specials.
And, as always, about 30 DC books. Although that pile is getting steadily smaller since I’m actually filling in most of those series. A few of them; Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman etc I’ve still got a fair amount left, but most of them have less than 5 issue to go, or one issue. Or they’re done.
So, not a very exciting haul this time, but a couple of series finished. Next one is probably in March.
