    Wow nice finds for cheap sir. I have a sick need to get one copy of every Razor comic. All cause years ago I got a shitpile of near mint copies of issue 1 about 5 months before the 90s Bad Girl boom happened.

    Made a nice profit that I used that year at few cons digging thru cheap bins.

    Yeah, if you timed that right you'd have come out with a nice chunk of change, that was an expensive book for a while there.

    It was 30 or 35 when I sold them all off. Paid I think 50 cents a copy when I got them from some guy set up at a mall show.

    Paid for my hotel room,con entrance fee and gave me a few bucks to drop in the dealers room.

    I have speculated on comics 3 times. Razor was the only time I made a good quick profit.

    The other two times,I was working at a shitty comic shop at the time, so when Spawn and Youngblood started I ordered a huge stack of each.

    The Youngbloods of course I lost my money on. But Spawn I held onto,until the film came out. Sold them for a ok profit. Mostly getting 10 or 15 an issue.

    Used the profits from that to rebag and re-board my then 75 longbox collection.

    I had a good chunk of Razor comics, most of them signed too. Alas I got rid of them in a mass purge before I moved. Just gave them away.

    Damn. While most of them aren't worth much they aren't that easy to find in my area.

    Let me know how those DCeaced are. I have been tempted to buy the collection a couple times but haven't pulled the trigger yet. The zombie thing seems so played out but I'm still curious how DC handles it.

    I have the first two issues of The Goddamned and remember liking them but haven't read them since they came out.

    It isn't really that different than, say, Marvel Zombies, haha. It isn't a bad read at all, but for me at least, they're $1 bin books. Some neat horror movie tribute variant covers on some issues though.

    It's a fantastic series. The second run is also great.

    The Comic Shop my girlfriend goes to had a sale. Cheap bins dropped to 50 cents each. Or you could pack a short box for 40 bucks.

    Didn't have much time so grabbed 8 books and plan on going back Friday or Saturday.

    Amazing Heroes #175-Has a Peter David interview and a Tim Vigil one.Been trying to get a full run of AH.

    Alister The Slayer #1-Mid 90s glut stuff.The Boris cover caught my eye.
    Amazing High Adventure #1-Seen this cover in ads for years. Never saw a copy in person.The Bill Sienkiewicz cover alone was worth the 50 cents.
    Big Trouble in Little China Escaspe from New York #1-Covers says it was a lootcrate exclusive,I'm assuming this cover is the exclusive.It's the first issue of 6.
    Don Simpson's Bizarre Heroes #3-I never see issues from this ever in person.
    Dreadstar #3-Epic Run. Needed this to fill in holes in my Dreadstar run.

    Elementals #1-The 90s short lived run of this title. Pretty sure by this time Bill Willingham was long gone.
    Nervous Rex #9-I have loved this William Van Horn series since finding a chunk of it in the cheap bins in the early 90s.
