    Is that the FantaCo adaptation? Loved that series, probably worth a bit. I have them somewhere in my parents' attic.

    It was the Avatar series but I have the FantaCo adaptation and agree that it's excellent.

    I wasn't too impressed with the Avatar NOTLD. Decent but nothing special.

    Last weekend I was going through the $1 bin and I found this copy of Night Music signed by P. Craig Russell, so I bought it as I like the series and was missing this issue.

    I didn't unbag it until last night, and when I opened it up, this sketch was inside.

    Wow, Ian, that is a nice find!

    About the only signed book find I had, at least within the past 5-10 years, was I saw at goodwill there was an Ansel Adams hardcover book, with his photos and such. Super nice condition, and cheap, so, I bought it. Looking through the book later, I found that Ansel Adams had signed it. An interesting find for $3 or whatever that book cost me.

    Now, back to comics. Eclipse and Pacific are 2 of my favorite comic companies ever. I never got much into the big ones, like Marvel, DC. Also, the newer ones around during the comics boom of the 90s - Image, Dark Horse, etc, they were alright, but I always found myself digging in back-issue bins looking for new-to-me stuff from Pacific and Eclipse. First Comics had some interesting stuff, for some reason "Corum" and "Whisper" comes to mind right away, but First Comics weren't in the same space as I'd put Pacific and Eclipse. I still go back over certain series from there - Twisted Tales, Tales of Terror, Alien Worlds, Alien Encounters, and also small mini-series, such as that comic Ian grabbed.

    Oh, and I was typing about those DVD and Blu-ray dumps at Dollar Trees in another thread, but this comics thread does remind me of when First Comics shut down. I have to double check the date that happened... 1991 or so, that seems right. OK, back in 1991-1992, there was a time, when Dollar Tree stores had PILES of comic books from First Comics. I guess First Comics had to clear out a warehouse, or 2, or 3... of back issues, and they just liquidated them to Dollar Tree stores. I bought A LOT of issues of random stuff from First Comics back during that dump. I think the price was 5-for-$1, something really cheap. Whisper, Grim Jack, Corum, Lone Wolf and Cub, Nexus... Lone Wolf and Cub comics, those were a nice find back then, 5-for-$1 or so...

    Throughout the 90s I could often find back issues at Dollar Tree stores, but not that often, and it would be a random mix of stuff. I recall finding The Thing mini-series from Dark Horse there, I forget what else. I haven't seen dumps of comics at a Dollar Tree store in a long time, though. That dump from First Comics was epic, though!

    I love All Star Squadron, I've got a complete run of it. That was a terrific book, Roy Thomas doing the characters he loved so much. DC really screwed him over with Crisis though, it basically killed the book.
