My LCS has a sale on FCBD which includes several tables of long boxes with $0.25 books.  Here's some of what I found in there:

JSC covers

(and one Jim Lee cover, issue #7, bottom left)

A while back, I posted in a thread about how my mom cut one of my comics for disobeying her.  So I was pretty happy to find an uncut copy in the $0.25 bin today.

Endgame spoiler(?) below.  Proceed with caution.

This seemed fitting given how things finish in Endgame.

They like to keep some treats in there for people to find.  Last year I was able to get Abnett/Lanning's Guardian's of the Galaxy #1.  I mean, they're not keys or anything, but they're absolute finds for a quarter.

I think more surprising to me is that other collectors skipped over the book as well.  There's always a line in front of the store of people waiting to rifle through the boxes

I pulled these bone white Marvel Comics Presents #85-97 out of 50c bins on FCBD

The Sam Keith flipbook covers always catch my eye as they came out when I first started to collect seriously (#88 is bad tho :$ )...

Haven't you heard? All reprints are worthless, and besides, that's not the Bone from Image. If a modern book is not from Image, then it can't be worth anything. :kidaround:

He has appeared on the Flash TV show, so it's not what it once was. But #1 still is a $15 book on a good day.

I love Crossed. I've been able to assemble nearly the entire fun from 50 cent and $1 bins over the years, very slowly, but it's satisfying to almost be done. I think I only need about 7 issues of the Badlands series and a couple from the spin-offs. It hits the sweet spot for ridiculous gore horror. Love it.
