Found this in my LCS dollar box.  Kind of cool being a Golden Age comic and all. For those not in the know- Major Inapak The Space Ace was a one-shot give-away comic used as a promotional piece for a vitamin fortified chocolate drink called INAPAK.

I’ve found one of those in a dollar box in recent years as well. Very cool book to have even if it’s not worth much.

Gotta say I’m quite pleased with my finds from today...

I never even knew there was a DCU version of that glow in the dark #531. Both of those Tron: Betrayal books are newsstands as well, and I just love the way the purple looks on the Hawkeye #9 2nd print. Also, can't go wrong with some Parrillo goodness on that Queen Sonja.

On top of all that, scooped some awesome keys today in Daredevil #131, Sandman #1 (1989), 5 Ronin #4 Psylocke (that variant that's gone crazy in price lately), Swamp Thing Annual #2, and The Dark Mansion of Forbidden Love #4 (loooove that cover). I'm a happy camper today!

Nice find! I sold that same pair of books on ebay 2 years ago for $90. Haven't seen any since.

If you bought all those for $1 you have the dumbest area on earth for comics. 
I am tempted to vacation there just to clean it out.

What's so rare about these comics?

Not rare, but I think Aquaman #2 is the first appearance of The Trench King, which was in the movie.

This is the $1 bin thread. Maybe you are confusing it with the "can't find in the wild" thread?

ya I had to look them up too, but they are mostly first appearances.... (selling for around $100 in 9.8)

I don't remember all the characters, but look up the book on ebay and read the CGC label's if your curious...... I like these post's, as I find this info is hard to come by, there are so many titles and so hard to keep up with all first appearances etc.....
