Cool that he's going through the thread.

650 pages isn't bad from start to finish....it's not like the moderns heating up thread - no one is going over all that again!

Way too much work sorting.Poor me.

Went to a yard sale that advertised comics. They did, but it was the second day and 1/2 the box was gone. I picked up a few books, but nothing post-worthy. However, I bundled the comics with this, which is really cool. I think this will clean up nice. It's not complete, but I think this will make a nice action figure display case. This is a chemistry set and mentions atomic energy, so I'm thinking about displaying sci-fi figures and items - Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers. I was looking for superheroes created by chemistry, and nothing jumped out at me. I'm not a Daredevil fan, Swamp Thing works better in a horror section, and I have other plans for TMNT displays. Suggestions are appreciated.

The one thing I miss the most since moving away from southern California is the flea markets and swap meets (well maybe family too...) North Texas, there's not a lot happening but the competition is pretty small unlike OC or LA County. I did finally manage to get lucky at a random antique store today. 

It's beat but it was cheap.

Any idea if this is a published artist or is it someone trying to pick up a woman by drawing her profile on a piece of scrap paper? It's literally on the bottom of a folded up cardboard food container that you'd see at a con. Looks like a three namer in silver ink, first name Alan or Adam?

Went back to the thrift store where a couple of months back I purchased a nice stack of comics that were once owned by someone named Caleb.  They must’ve brought out another box of Caleb's books, because I bought another 20 or so today - mostly sketchbooks and indies circa 2007-2013, the highlight being Head Lopper 1 and 2 (self published version) - not bad for $20 all in.
