As a consolation prize... um... you win... um... let's see...

 

How bout if you win a copy of the trade, but only on the condition that you have to pick a two-page spread in the book and color it in... and post it for the forum to see... thumbsup2.gif

 

No fair cheating and having your offspring do it for you... 893naughty-thumb.gif893naughty-thumb.gif

I'll do that for some free swag! BTW, don't need the USM 6&7 trades. Got them for $2 each (!). Still need the Sojourn 4 though.

I was about 10 minutes away from placing that order for you... good thing you let me know...

 

BTW, check your records on the Mister Miracle 3 from my last statement... Despite my reputation for thievery, I'd feel bad if you didn't take a look... confused.gif

 

But just to keep my thievery rep intact... devil.gif

 

Here's a pic of last night's haul:

Argh! They all say Marvel on them! Yeah, yeah, I know, you can't get the same deals from DC, but these fell off of a truck, man! Are you telling us ONLY Marvel tpbs fell? All the DCs were tied down tightly?

 

Sassle frassle suicidal marvel books leaping off of trucks.

The "Essentials" are black and white reprints of the early Marvels on newsprint for very cheap prices. The typical Essentials volume reprints around 22 issues and they cost $15...

 

And yes, I do know many colorists who have torn pages out to practice on them... smile.gif

 

But they aren't technically coloring books... tongue.gif

 

As for why Marvels are more likely to commit suicide than DC's... I think the Tootsie Roll commercial said it best, "the world may never know..."

UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!

 

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... The new trades are here... And now that the cops have stopped circling the building it's time to list them for sale!!!!

 

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 first deluge of trades:

 

icestorm.jpg

 

Many of these are available in significant quantity. You can tell from the

picture I STILL have more than a couple Dark Phoenix Sagas... tongue.gif

 

But a few I only have a handful of one or two 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...

NOTE: Many of these have corner dings. About 25% of them have price stickers that easily peel off. A couple have 1-inch tears on the back cover. A couple have 1-inch corner creases. But most of them look like they have been sitting on a shelf for a couple months and have been opened a couple times.

 

But most of these are CHEAP!!!!!!!

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

 

Note: Some of these are offered in both regular and "slightly damaged" form. Please be specific as to which you want...

 

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 Check the 2nd and 3rd posts in this thread for the info on the first batch. The reprint info for the second batch is listed above.

 

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 Believe it or not, I may be getting another deal like this in a week or two...

So if I decided that I wanted to 'taste' Marvel comics, to see what they're all about, which would you recommend? Keep in mind that my funds are incredibly limited, so they must be the cheapies. Do I read a Spider-Guy? X-Guys? What? And which book(s)? Actually, Spider, X, and Hulk are the 3 I'd be most interested in, so what do you guys say? Which?
