If more than 850,000 people see the movie and want a copy, we'll be in trouble. lol

Yeah when I found them I was sure there was something about them but I wasn't sure what. Also, full disclosure, the magazines were in the toonie bin.

Wow you found that Art Adams in a dollar bin?!? Also I'm incredibly jealous of those resident evil mags. I grew up playing #2 and reading resident evil novels like it was my religion!

Spawn hasn't been in $1 bins in a long time. X-Force still is.

Awesome pick ups!  Is there anything special with the doom patrol books?

I haven't checked prices in a long while, but many years ago they were worth a pretty hefty price. But since they're magazine sized, they are sometimes overlooked. Great pickups!

Several of the Morrison DP books have popped due to the streaming show. 1st Crazy Jane, 1st Flex Mentallo, 1st Mr Nobody, etc. Since these have been dollar bin books for years, they're a great cheap pick up, and in grade can sell for $20+. Still one of my all time favorite comic runs. Such imagination.

Awesome finds! Those Doom Patrol books are hot right now, I'm kind of regretting selling my #19 and #26 a few weeks ago, honestly.

While most of the Morrison DP keys have been dollar box books for a while, #19 has been a priced ($5-$10) for as long as I got back into collecting about 5 years ago. So, that one is a bit harder to find in the dollar boxes in my experiences.

I haven't seen X-Force #1 in $1 bins for about a year now...good for you. 

My response was more about overprinted selling for quite a bit more than it should.

Any advice on whether or not to grade them? I also have 2 and 4 but 3 was  not there.

I am not sure there is a slab market for them since they are oversized. Check the census to see how many are there. I have always sold those raw.

Man that's a nice find. Those Static 45s took me almost 10 years to find a copy.
I have found 2 in the last couple of years, but very very elusive books to find. 

That Shazam and All Star look nice as well.

Some of the better pulls from today’s build a $120 longbox special. I let out an audible “YES!” when I hit the TWO Static 45’s as Ive only ever found one copy in the wild.
