I responded to an ad. Turns out to be dozens of shipping boxes, all to the same buyer, in storage for ~20 years. I'm still going through the boxes, but here are some of the books. In my years of buying collections, I've never seen so many adult comics, and in full sets too. There are also full runs of lots of the titles in the pictures: Faust, Predator, Omega Men, Sandman, Aliens, Appleseed, Akira, etc. The Tick #1 is my favorite of the lot. I also love the sealed value packs. Still a lot of organizing to do.

A friend cleans out houses after midnight moves,evictions and has dropped off two longs of mostly Marvel Civil War era,Initiative stuff.Some fun reading,lots of storylines unfinished though!

Have found a bunch of later newstands in the lot2007/8 ,will let you know if it's anything exciting.Have to look up if any have price variations.Some fun gold second print oddballs in there,Wolverine and Punisher War Journals I'd never seen,and that fun gold glow in the dark Ghost Rider second print.

Happy hunting Blob,can't win if you don't play!

I look, just haven't seen comics. I slow the car down every time we pass a garage sale and eyeball it quick. My wife tolerates it because I have made some quick money scores like this in the past.  It was just dry this year for comics.

Nice find! What else in that value pack with the Elric book?

Here are some additional pics. The books in the middle may start with Sh or Sp and looks orange or salmon in color.20181017_135415.thumb.jpg.71a987cf22f30f5578f503dfd3333b19.jpg

Thanks for the pics. Nice looking Elric; I hadn't realized any of these First Comics came in value packs (but then again, I hadn't exactly looked into it before).

I remember buying a value pack of First books at a Dollar Tree when I was a kid, pretty sure it had a Grimjack and a Nexus in it, not sure what the third book was. But yeah, I remember these packs for sure.

Nice comics are still out there....just takes some leg work to find them....

Over Labor Day I helped my wife set up at an outdoor festival.  She makes pottery but needed someone else to help watch the booth....so I took some cheap toys/comics to sell as well.  In talking to people throughout the weekend was able to get a couple leads on collections and both came to fruition over the past couple weeks!

Now 150 or so boxes later I am a busy (well, busier) man!

Pic from right after loading up the second deal....

150 long boxes???  That is a huge haul.  That's the size of my entire collection, amassed over the last 40+ years of hoarding. I guess I know what will happen when I finally drop dead in a screaming match with my wife.

A nice Knights of the Dinner Table 1 is a $100-$200 book raw depending on condition (maybe more if slabbed as a 9.8). Series has a little cult niche and I believe is well into issue #s in the 200s.

So I decided to stop by a Goodwill while out and about and came across a small collection if comics. They were all priced $1-$2 so yes I bought them all. I'm thinking it was someone cleaning out their attic or their kids stuff without knowing. IMG_20181019_154139683_BURST000_COVER_TOP.thumb.jpg.3a791360a01857267c86937182e8935a.jpgIMG_20181019_154212080_BURST001.thumb.jpg.bc4cc9c3247302278a63094c7308c14a.jpgIMG_20181019_154158649_BURST000_COVER_TOP.thumb.jpg.3f227f141f6b9af3cbd2b513836432f1.jpg
