Never made it down their shop. I usually hit up their booth at steel city con or sci-fi in the valley. They usually have 25 cent boxes set up all over.

Heard it was a pretty good sale but I'm guessing most the good stuff sold for $1 each on Friday.  Pick up anything good?

They have 4-5 shops  now. Hit or miss, same as any shop, but I usually find a few good books.

Some decent stuff. It's not like they had never been gone through either. ND goes through everything and picks the well known stuff. Then re-sorts them so there aren't any long runs of series. You have to go through everything. So, you're only ever going to find recent, low dollar hot books anyway with their stuff.

Come on - quit being so secretive all the time.  Give us some examples of books you found in that massive heap of books.

Nobody catches everything. With that many books there are gems there guaranteed.

No doubt. Especially if you're an early bird.

I vaguely remember someone posting it in the Books You Can't Find In The Wild thread a while back, but I never looked it up. I'm glad I finally did today, I had no idea it was that pricey... now to find the second one :wishluck:

Video game comics have a weird niche.

The Ratchet and  Clank mini does well (although this sale is above the norm): https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ratchet-and-Clank-Comic-Books-1-2-3-4-5-6-1-6-DC-Wildstorm-NEW-RARE/163261694366?hash=item260327c19e:g:qDAAAOSw6yJa0VMJ

The Uncharted mini does ok (I have seen it go much higher):

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Uncharted-1-6-2012-DC-VF-NM-to-NM-Complete-Set/163181763361?hash=item25fe641b21:g:JmIAAOSw6fpbYz-Q

Oddly, the TPBs of the above go for good money too.

The Last of Us comics are pretty tough, too. Of course the early Sonic books and even some of the old Valiant Nintendo books. I thought (hoped) the Metal Gear Solid books would be hotter, especially since I'm a big fan of Ashley Wood's art. I want to say Earthworm Jim does well, too.

I sold a set of Earthworm Jim for $150 I think around a year or two ago. Only copies I have ever found in 15 years of looking.

Only found one copy of Sly Cooper as well both are extremely scarce and impossible to find in high grade.

Thanks for this! I actually thought about starting one last night after seeing the latest posts in the Wild thread. Obviously I didn't look for new threads, just fast tracked to the starred ones.
