Okay, you've been waiting long enough... Many of you have heard that I found a Texas oil baron with more dollars than sense and convinced him to buy me some trade paperbacks... Well my UPS man finally made his way through the snow and ice and delivered nearly 400lbs of trades to my doorstep. There are more on the way next week, so I need to move some of these to make room...

 

Okay, I really don't have to make room. I have plenty of room... But it sounded good, didn't it?

 

Here's a pic of the deluge of trades:

Many of these are available in significant quantity. You can tell from the picture I have more than a couple Dark Phoenix Sagas... tongue.gif

 

But a few I only have a handful of copies left.

 

Nearly all of these are right at 50% off cover price. The others are very close to that. Domestic media mail shipping is $2 per order, no matter how many trades you get. I'll pick up part of the tab for international shipping...

 

Domestic orders paid by check can take a dollar off your total, so just $1 shipping for your order if you pay by check. But I am happy to accept PayPal as well...

 

Here's what's available:

There you go... one gajillion trades... smile.gif

 

Drop me a PM if you see something you want. If you don't, feel free to reply to the thread with nonsense. You know I would do the same for you...

 

Since I know there will be many questions about which issues are reprinted in these, I will post a reply following with as much of that info as I can.. thumbsup2.gif

 

And yes, I do have more coming next week. But those are sort of a "grab-bag" deal or a "what-fell-off-the-back-of-the-truck" deal... so I don't know what's coming. Hopefully all this ice will be gone by then. I may need a bigger table. tongue.gif

Update:

 

Life and Death of Captain Marvel is sold out...

 

Everything else is still available, although several are down to one or two copies. The X-trades are still in nice supply, it's the others that are running a little low (since I didn't start with as many).

 

And as always, I am happy to fill orders for other trades that you may need at my normal 25% discount for forum members (with free domestic shipping)... Order at least $100 worth of cover price and it's 30% off... Convince me that it's really a "gift" from "your mom" and you might even get a better deal*... smile.gifstooges.gif

 

*note that this "gift" special may only apply to forum Den Mothers

 

Thanks for all the orders so far... my table isn't groaning nearly as much... smile.gif

Stealing my pics again... 893naughty-thumb.gif

 

And after I had to get that restraining order the last time you did that... Of course, those weren't pics of trade paperbacks, but... 893scratchchin-thumb.gif

 

Sold a bunch more of these last night. Captain Marvel is still the only sellout, although a couple more are close...

 

And I am amazed no one has ordered a copy of Vignettes... Have you people not read those stories???

 

Jim Krueger (writer and co-creator of Earth-X) said "The Claremont/Bolton X-Men backup stories from Classic X-Men are my favorite X-Men stories of all time."

 

Wolverine's first game of "Tag" with Sabretooth. Logan and Jean's first kiss... This is some great stuff...

 

I can't believe no one has ordered a copy... confused-smiley-013.gif
