    I read ASS pretty much every month. Was one of the few DC titles I picked up every month.

    Few years back out of a 50 cent bin I got almost the first 40 issues. Is Young All Stars worth grabbing?

    YAS is pretty good but I've always preferred Infinity Inc. The JSA made pretty regular appearances for a while in that book. I will say neither is as good as All Star Squadron.
    I don't go to church. Kneeling bags my nylons.

    Infinity Inc is another I need to read more of. Most of the 80s I wasn't into DC. Always saw the DC heroes back then just seemed corny and dated to me. Then The Question and Animal Man series started and the comic shop owner talked me into checking them out.

    I'm a big DC Comics fan, and I've always loved "All-Star Squadron" and "Infinity Inc.". I agree Roy Thomas is a great writer, and he had a real affection for WWII characters. Today I went to a comic and toy store, and while I didn't find any cheap $1 comics, I did come home with six comics and one magazine. I got "Infinity Inc." #8 ($2), "Infinity Inc. Special" #1 ($4), "Justice League of America" #207 with a cameo by All-Star Squadron ($5.50), "Justice League Europe" #3 ($3), "The Legion of Super-Heroes" #301 ($3.50) and "Jughead" #157 ($4.50), plus an issue of "Animerica", an anime magazine ($1). I guess "Animerica" was sort of a bargain bin item. The total was $23.50 but the owner let me have them for $20! Pretty nice of him. Of course the condition of these wasn't great. I had to scrape off a bit of crud from the "Justice League" comic and "Animerica" issue. The "Jughead" issue had a piece of paper taped to the inside back cover that said "Borrower's Name: 1. John", then 2 to 7 was blank. I guess only one person borrowed it! Thankfully I was able to peel the tape off easily, but there are stains on the back cover where the tape was and other places too. "Jughead" looks like it isn't meant to be read too many more times. The pages are yellow and it could fall apart any time now. It's from 1968.

    Nice finds James. It is rare I find any Archie comic in a comic shop that isn't well read.

    Going Wednesday to the good comic shop. Last trip there I got a stack of stuff out of his "Kids comics buck an issue bin." Then loaded up on cheap tpbs/Hardcovers at Book a Million. Thinking this time I am gonna see what all the comic shop has in it's non-cheap bins.
