LETS START WITH 70% OF THE PICKUPS IN ONE POST WITH ALL THE QUARTER CARDS I PICKED UP WHICH DIDN'T ACTUALLY COST 25 CENTS EACH DUE TO 5 FOR A BUCK AND DISCOUNTS AND SUCH. SORTED BY AGE BECAUSE WHY NOT

1957 TOPPS CHARLEY CONERLY 


I DON'T REALLY FOCUS ON FOOTBALL CARDS ANYMORE BUT ANY PRE-AFL-NFL MERGER CARD FOR A QUARTER IS NOT SOMETHING I WILL LEAVE BEHIND AT A CARD SHOW. THE '57 TOPPS FOOTBALL DESIGN IS DELIGHTFULLY WEIRD AND COLORFUL UNLIKE THE BASEBALL SET. THE PREVIOUS OWNER WROTE CHARLEY'S UNI NUMBER ON THE CARD, SCRATCHED IT OUT AND WROTE IT AGAIN FOR SOME REASON. THIS IMPROVES THE DESIGN IN MY OPINION

1958 TOPPS TOBIN ROTE


1958 TOPPS FOOTBALL, AKA THE BETA VERSION OF 1959 TOPPS BASEBALL. NOT SURE IF I LIKE THE OVAL OR CIRCLE BETTER. THIS TIME THE KID SCRIBBLED THE WRONG UNI NUMBER  ON THE FRONT, A CHOICE WHICH BEWILDERS ME

1960 TOPPS LEO NOMINELLI


73. WRITTEN BOLDLY AND NOT SCRIBBLED OUT. THE KID GOT THEIR ACT TOGETHER OVER THE PREVIOUS TWO YEARS. 1960 TOPPS IS THE VINTAGE SET I HAVE THE BEST CHANCE TO COMPLETE DUE TO ACCUMULATING A LARGE NUMBER AS A YOUTH AND A LACK OF SUPERSTAR ROOKIES BUT I'LL NEVER FINISH IT BECAUSE I NEVER SEE THEM

1960 TOPPS BILLY GOODMAN


MY FAVORITE VINTAGE SELLER HAD A STACK OF '60 COMMONS FOR A QUARTER EACH AND I WAS ABLE TO SNAG TEN FOR MY SET. BILLY WAS THE ONLY ONE FROM THE FIRST SERIES I NEEDED

1960 TOPPS DAN DOBBEK


SPORT MAGAZINE ROOKIES AWWW YEAH. I'LL NEVER GET MY HANDS ON THE YAZ BUT DON DOBBEK IS ALL MINE. DON GOT A SPORTING NEWS ROOKIE STARTS CARD IN '61 AS WELL AND IS ONE OF THE ORIGINAL MINNESOTA TWINS

1960 TOPPS RONNIE HANSEN


THE 1960 AL ROOKIE OF THE YEAR WITH JUST A LIL BIT OF GUNK ON THE FRONT. RONNIE HAD A NICE 15 YEAR CAREER IN THE BIGS WITH A COUPLE ALL STAR APPEARANCES

1960 TOPPS ED HOBAUGH


LOTS OF WHITE SOX IN THIS POST, BUT ED NEVER PITCHED A GAME FOR THEM AS WASHINGTON SNAGGED HIM IN THE EXPANSION DRAFT. WHY THE HECK DID WASHINGTON GET AN EXPANSION TEAM IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE ORIGINAL SENATORS BOLTED FOR MINNESOTA ANYWAY

1960 TOPPS JAKE STRIKER


 JAKE STRIKER SOUNDS LIKE THE LEAD IN A '50S ALIEN INVASION FILM. JAKE! THE GIANT CICADAS ARE EATING CITY HALL! WE HAVE TO USE NUCLEAR FORCE!

1960 TOPPS JOHNNY KUCKS


JOHNNY KUCKS SOUNDS LIKE THE RIVAL SCIENTIST THAT CAUSES THE ALIEN PANIC IN THAT MOVIE. KANSAS CITY A'S THO AND CHECK OUT THAT KICKASS ELEPHANT LOGO

1960 TOPPS DICK DONOVAN


GENERAL DICK DONOVAN LEADS THE TANKS INTO BATTLE AGAINST THE CICADAS BUT NOTHING HAPPENS BECAUSE THEY ARE ACTUAL BUGS ON A BLUESCREEN. MAN THAT OLD SKOOL WHITE SOX CAP IS FUCKIN' AMAZING I WANT ONE

1960 TOPPS RON BLACKBURN


RON LOOKS MORE LIKE COMIC RELIEF. 50-50 CHANGE HE GETS EATEN BY RADIOACTIVE BUGS

1960 TOPPS JOE SHIPLEY


 I'M FASCINATED BY THE STANDS BEHIND JOE HERE. IS THIS SEALS STADIUM OR CANDLESTICK? I'M NO GOOD AT IDENTIFYING OLD STADIUMS OTHER THAN PICKING OUT THE UBIQUITOUS YANKEE STADIUM FACADE

1960 TOPPS KEN McBRIDE


lower case text alert. I'VE ALREADY MENTIONED THE KICKASS HAT NOW LET'S LOOK AT THAT SWEET WINGED SOCK LOGO. BRING THAT SHIT BACK CHICAGO

1960 TOPPS BOB LILLIS


ANOTHER ROOKIE CARD I THINK. I WAS ALMOST CERTAIN I ALREADY HAD THIS CARD BUT I THINK THAT'S BECAUSE THE SAME PICTURE WAS USED ON HIS '61 TOPPS STAR ROOKIE CARD. WE'LL FIND OUT WHEN I GET AROUND TO PUTTING THESE IN THE BINDER

1960 TOPPS DON HOAK


A GLORIOUS MISCUT CARD. I WONDER WHO THAT IS OVER ON THE RIGHT. MY MAIN THOUGHT ON DON HOAK IS THAT BIT IN CITY SLICKERS WHEN DONNA SLATER IS LIKE WHO THE FUCK KNOWS WHO PLAYED THIRD BASE FOR THE PIRATES IN 1960 AND EVERYONE SAYS 'DON HOAK' IN UNISON. I WAS WATCHING THE MOVIE WITH MY FAMILY ONCE AND THEY WERE ALL 'YOU KNEW THE ANSWER RIGHT' AND I THOUGHT 'HELL NO, I WASN'T EVEN ALIVE IN 1960 HOW WOULD I EVEN KNOW THAT' AND TOLD THEM OF COURSE I DID

1961 FLEER LEFTY O'DOUL


MAN, SOMEONE HAD IT OUT FOR OL' LEFTY. AT LEAST THEY USED PENCIL INSTEAD OF PEN. THE CARD IS BEAT TO SHIT BUT '61 FLEER IS ALWAYS FUN AND CHECK OUT THE COOL HAT ON LEFTY, WHAT THE HELL IS THAT

1963 TOPPS EARL AVERILL


JUNIOR, NOT THE HALL OF FAMER. STILL A NICE '63 TOPPS CARD OF A CATCHER. LOVE THAT BIG MITT

1964 TOPPS BILL MONBOUQUETTE


PRETTY GOOD PITCHER I HAD NEVER HEARD OF UNTIL I WAS DEEP IN MY 20S DUE TO NEVER RUNNING INTO ONE OF HIS CARDS AS A KID. BILL'S QUIZZICAL FACE IS TYPICAL FOR THE VERY EXPRESSIVE '64 SET

1964 TOPPS HAL SMITH


HAL SMITH LOOKS A LOT LIKE DOCTOR SMITH FROM LOST IN SPACE IN THIS PHOTO. JONATHAN HARRIS HAS WAY BETTER HAIR THOUGH

1964 TOPPS TOM HALLER


MORE CATCHER CARDS FUCK YEAH. IN THE PAST TEN YEARS OR SO I'VE BECOME OBSESSED WITH 1964 TOPPS CARDS AND IT'S PASSED '63 AND '65 IN MY SETS I WANNA FINISH RANKINGS. '64S ARE WAY EASIER TO FIND THAN THOSE TWO FOR SOME REASON SO THAT'S PROBABLY A GOOD THING

1967 TOPPS JIM PERRY


EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT GAYLORD AND HIS QUESTIONABLY LEGAL PITCH REPERTOIRE BUT JIM WAS A DAMN GOOD PITCHER IN HIS OWN RIGHT. HE'S GOT A CY YOUNG AWARD JUST LIKE HIS BROTHER

1968 TOPPS DON KESSINGER


GOLD GLOVE SHORTSTOP MOSTLY KNOWN FOR BEING MENACED BY A BLACK CAT NOWADAYS. BASEBALL AIN'T FAIR

1971-72 TOPPS JIM FOX


BOOKENDING THIS POST WITH NON-BASEBALL CARDS BECAUSE THINGS WORK OUT WEIRD SOMETIMES. THIS DESIGN REMINDS ME A LOT OF THE 69 TOPPS FOOTBALL SET WITH AN ADDED FUNKY TEAM NAME. GOTTA LOVE THE STOOPED OVER POSED PICTURES. NOT SURE IF THEY DID THIS TO TRY TO FIT THE PLAYERS ON THE CARD OR TO OBSCURE THE TEAM LOGOS

1972-73 TOPPS LEROY ELLIS


ONE OF MY FAVORITE EARLY BASKETBALL DESIGNS. IT'S HARD TO SEE BECAUSE LEROY IS SCRUNCHED OVER LIKE JIM BUT NOTE HOW TOPPS MADE HIM TURN HIS JERSEY AROUND SO YOU SAW HIS NAME ON THE BACK INSTEAD OF THE TEAM LOGO. PANINI'S NOT THE ONLY COMPANY WHAT HAD TO RESORT TO PHOTO LOGO SHENANIGANS

1973-74 TOPPS CINCY POWELL


UPON FURTHER REVIEW, THERE'S A GOOD CHANCE I HAVE THIS CARD ALREADY BUT YOU DON'T PASS UP AN ABA CARD FOR A QUARTER. IT'S WORTH 10 TIMES THE PRICE FOR THE RED WHITE AND BLUE ABA BALL ALONE, NOT TO MENTION THOSE GLORIOUS SOCKS

TEN CARDS TO GO LET'S SEE IF I GET TO THEM BEFORE JANUARY

CARD SHOW

FIRST ONE SINCE MARCH  I THINK? MY FAVORITE DIME BOX SELLER WAS NOT THERE WHICH WAS HIGHLY DISAPPOINTING BUT I STILL MANAGED TO FIND SOME COOL STUFF AND FINISHED A SET. HERE'S THE GOODS:



LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT A PROPER POST ON ANY OF THIS STUFF AND POINT OUT WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE

DOOM BIXX $FIVE.FIDDY

UP TOO LATE AND ANXIOUS BECAUSE I WANT TO DO SOMETHING AND DON'T KNOW WHAT SO THANKSGIVING MIRACLE! A POST ABOUT CARDS

HAVEN'T BEEN TO A CARD SHOW IN MANY MONTHS BUT I STILL GOT A NICE BACKLOG OF SCANS TO SHOW OFF SO HERE YA GO


2013 PANINI COOPERSTOWN MAX CAREY LUMBERJACKS


2013 PANINI WAS PRETTY LEGIT. THEY DID A BUNCH OF INTERESTING PRODUCTS THAT I REALLY LIKED. NOT SO MUCH RECENTLY. COOPERSTOWN WAS A FUN SET OF HALL OF FAMERS AND LEGENDS THAT YA JUST DON'T SEE ANYMORE. AS WITH ALL RECENT PRODUCTS THE INSERTS AND PARALLELS WERE INSANE. THERE WAS A 165 CARD ONE PER PACK INSERT SET WHEN THE BASE SET WITH SPS WAS ONLY 110. LUMBERJACKS WAS TWO PER BOX AND ONLY 100 CARDS THANKFULLY. THESE THINGS ARE PRINTED ON FAKE(?) WOOD STOCK AND FEEL KINDA BRITTLE


MAX IS BEST KNOWN FOR HIS SPEED AND NOT HIS BAT AND HELD THE NL STEALS RECORD UNTIL LOU BROCK CAME ALONG. MAX'S CAREER FELL RIGHT IN BETWEEN THE T206 AND '33 GOUDEY SETS SO THERE AIN'T A WHOLE LOT OF CARDS FOR HIM FROM HIS PLAYING DAYS. A T207, A CRACKER JACK AND SOME STRIP CARDS. HIS HALL OF FAME INDUCTION GOT HIM ON QUITE A FEW LATER SETS BUT IT'S STILL NICE TO SEE A MODERN CARD OF ONE OF THE MORE OBSCURE HALL OF FAMERS

1991 STUDIO JEFF BAGWELL


PRETTY SURE I SAID IT ON TWITTER AT THE TIME AND I'MMA SAY IT AGAIN.

WHAT THE HELL IS THIS CARD DOING IN A DIME BOX????

IN 1991 THIS CARD WAS LIKE FINDING A ROLL OF HUNDREDS STUFFED INSIDE THE HOLY GRAIL SITTING IN THE PASSENGER SEAT OF A MASERATI WITH THE KEYS IN THE IGNITION

OK MAYBE NOT THAT BUT IT WAS A BIG FUCKING DEAL



MAN I LOVE THIS SET SO MUCH. YOU DON'T SEE SETS LIKE THIS NOWADAYS. OH WAIT, WE DID... FROM PANINI.... IN 2013. I WISH IT WAS 2013 AGAIN. THE BACK OF THIS CARD TELLS US JEFF WAS FROM BOSTON, WAS DRAFTED BY BOSTON, HAD CARL YASTRZEMSKI AS HIS HERO AND WATCHED CHEERS. AND THE RED SOX TRADED HIM TO HOUSTON. THIS UNIVERSE IS WEIRD

1994 PINNACLE DANTE BICHETTE MUSEUM COLLECTION


THIS CARD LOOKS LIKE AN ANIME. AND IT'S CRAZIER IN PERSON I ASSURE YOU. MY GOD PINNACLE DID SOME DAMN WORK IN THE 90S


1994 WAS SUCH A GOOD YEAR FOR CARDS AND IT ALL WENT TO SHIT AND EVERYTHING WAS IN EXTREMELY DISCOUNTED CLEARANCE BINS BY 1995 AND IT WAS NEVER THE SAME AGAIN.  PINNACLE WAS A NICE LITTLE SET BEFORE THEY WENT ALL CRAZY WITH THE FOIL. I KNOW I'LL NEVER DO IT BUT THE THOUGHT OF BUILDING A MUSEUM SET IS INTRIGUING

2018 TOPPS TIM RAINES SOME KINDA DAMN INSERT


I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL THIS INSERT SET IS, THERE'S LIKE 150 CARDS IN THE SET AND THEY ARE ALL DIFFERENT THINGS LIKE LEGENDARY ALL-STARS AND ROOKIE STANDOUTS AND FATHER'S DAY UGLY HATS AND STUFF LIKE THAT WITH NO UNIFYING THEME. THIS IS TIME RAINES IN THE POWDER BLUES AND THAT EXPOS LOGO SO IT IS GLORIOUS ALL BY ITSELF



I HAVE NO MEMORY OF THIS ALL-STAR GAME ALTHOUGH I DO REMEMBER BACK WHEN THE NATIONAL LEAGUE COULD ACTUALLY WIN A FUCKING GAME. I AM VERY HAPPY TIM RAINES FINALLY MADE THE HALL. I AM BESET WITH ANXIETY ABOUT THIS YEAR'S BALLOT TO THE POINT I AM IGNORING THE ELECTION PROCESS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A WHILE. I JUST HOPE LOU GETS IN, THAT'S ALL I ASK

1992 UPPER DECK HEROES OF BASEBALL TIGERS HOLOGRAM


ONE OF THE LAZIEST THINGS I HAVE DONE IN MY LIFE IS NOT PROPERLY COLLECTED ALL THE STICKERS I'VE GOTTEN IN VARIOUS BASEBALL CARD PACKS IN MY LIFE. THEY'RE JUST JUMBLED UP IN RANDOM BOXES INSTEAD OF ORGANIZED INTO COMPLETE SETS AND PUT INTO BINDERS TO LOVINGLY PERUSE ON QUIET RAINY SUNDAYS. ESPECIALLY THE UPPER DECK HOLOGRAM STICKERS. MAN, I'VE REALLY NEGLECTED THEM AND JUST THROWN THEM IN ANY OLD BOX TO BE FORGOTTEN FOREVER. THIS PENNANT VARIETY IS FAIRLY UNCOMMON HOWEVER AND WAS WELL WORTH A DIME. I LOVE THAT SURPRISED TIGER LOGO

NO ONE READS BLOGS ON THANKSGIVING, SO I HOPE YOU ATE A LOT OF FOOD AND GOT ALL YOUR SHOPPING DONE AT THE DOORBUSTER SALE!

OH DEAR GOD MORE COMICS

WHEW, NOVEMBER JUST MELTED AWAY DIDN'T IT. DESPITE HAVING HUNDREDS OF CARDS ALREADY SCANNED AND SEVERAL POSTS QUEUED UP TO WRITE, I JUST HAVEN'T FELT IT LATELY. I WAS FORCED TO LEAVE MY HOVEL TODAY AND HIT THE BOOKSTORE TO TRY TO BREAK OUT OF THE DOLDRUMS. THERE WAS A BUY 5, GET 5 COMIC SALE AND I GOT TWENTY CHEAPO FLOPPIES FOR WAY LESS THAN ONE OF THOSE PRISM ZION HANGERS OR WALGREENS YELLOW UPDATE BOXES EVERYONE IS CHASING ON TWITTER. HERE'S SCANS OF ALL TWENTY COVERS RANKED BY HOW EXCITED I AM TO READ THE THING. SURELY THIS WILL GET ME OUT OF MY RUT

20 - HIGH OCTANE THEATRE #1


WHENEVER I FIND CHEAPO COMICS WITH A QUANTITY DISCOUNT I ALWAYS IMMEDIATELY FIND A FEW MUST-HAVES AND THEN PAD OUT THE REST WITH INTERESTING LOOKING GARBAGE. REASONS I PICKED THIS ONE UP OUT OF THE REST OF THE TRASH:

PUBLISHER, INFINITI, THAT I HAD NEVER HEARD OF BEFORE
HIGH KICK NINJA STAR DODGING GUNS-A-BLAZING ACTION LADY
JEREMY SIFTER: RIDICULOUS DOUCHE

THIS COMIC HAD SUCH AN 80S VIBE TO IT AND I'M SOMEWHAT DISAPPOINTED TO LEARN THAT IT IS ACTUALLY FROM 1997. NO EXPECTATIONS THOUGH SO IF IT'S MARGINALLY COMPETENT IT'S A WIN

19 - EQUINOX CHRONICLES #1


INNOVATION COMICS IS GOOD FOR SOME EARLY 90S CHEESE. EYEPATCH BUTT LADY WATCHES IN AMUSEMENT AS A POOR WOMAN GETS HER DRESS SHREDDED BY VIPERS. CAN'T PASS UP A COVER THIS SLEAZY

18 - SHOCK THE MONKEY #1


ANOTHER PUBLISHER I'VE NEVER HEARD OF. THE BIG X MAKES ME THINK IT'S FROM THE 90S BUT I'M NOT REALLY SURE. BOUGHT THIS SOLELY FOR THE SANDMAN-ESQUE CREEPY COVER. HAS THE GREATEST POSSIBILITY OF BEING A HIDDEN GEM OUT OF THE BUNCH

17 - A DISTANT SOIL #9 


I HAVE AN EARLIER ISSUE OF THIS FROM WHEN IT WAS PRINTED IN MAGAZINE FORMAT. NO IDEA WHAT THE HELL IT'S ABOUT EVEN AFTER READING. KING ARTHUR IN SPACE, STARRING CARRIE IS THE BEST GUESS I CAN MAKE. NONE OF THAT MATTERS BECAUSE I HAVE TO KNOW WHAT THE HELL PANDA KHAN IS

16 - CAMELOT 3000 


NORMALLY I AVOID DC AND MARVEL JUNK BUT HOLY SHIT THIS COVER. SHOW ME A PRETTY WOMAN, PROBABLY EVIL, SURROUNDED BY BATSHIT INSANITY ON THE COVER OF A COMIC AND YOU HAVE MY INTEREST. IMPS! SNAKES! COOL SKULL GUY! HEROES TRAPPED IN A CRYSTAL BALL! KING ARTHUR IN SPACE AGAIN SOMEHOW???

15 - THE LAST ONE #3


NOT CRAZY ABOUT DC, BUT I'LL TRY ANY OLD DAMN VERTIGO NONSENSE THAT CROSSES MY PATH. DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS ONE BUT IT LOOKS LIKE THERE'S A SKEERY GHOST? GHOSTS ARE COOL

12 TO 14 - INVADERS FROM MARS #3, 4 AND 6




I FOUND ISSUE #2 OF THIS SERIES AT A COMIC CON A WHILE BACK AND FOUND THREE MORE FOR THE SET. TO MY AMUSEMENT I JUST DISCOVERED THE MAIN CHARACTER IS NAMED BOBBY BOOMER

MAYBE DROP THESE DOWN A FEW SLOTS LOL

11 - NICK FURY AGENT OF SHIELD #5


AGAIN, NOT A BIG MARVEL MEN IN TIGHTS FAN BUT NICK FURY BATTLING GLOOPY ALIEN EGG MONSTERS CAUGHT MY ATTENTION

10 - RION 2990 #2


SEE A MANGA, BUY A MANGA. EVEN IF YOU HAVE NO FUCKIN' CLUE WHAT THE HELL IT IS. THE COVER IS BATSHIT CRAZY THO WITH A NIFTY ASTROBOY VIBE. I APPRECIATE THE LOOK ON THE HELICOPTER PILOT'S FACE. #10  MIGHT BE TOO LOW A RANKING HONESTLY

9 - CEREBUS #3 REPRINT


I LIKE THESE EARLY CEREBUS COMICS BEFORE DAVE SIM LOST HIS MIND. CARTOONY AARDVARK SPOOFING CONAN IS FUN. I HAVE THIS ODD FEELING I CAN'T SHAKE THIS MIGHT BE A DOUBLE THOUGH SO I DIDN'T RANK IT HIGHER

8 - SHATTER #1


IF YOU DIG THESE COMICS POSTS GO CHECK OUT THE COMICS KAYFABE YOUTUBE CHANNEL. SO MUCH GOOD COMICS CONTENT. I FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS COMIC FROM ED AND JIM AND HAPPENED TO STUMBLE ON IT TODAY. THE GIMMICK HERE IS THAT THIS IS THE FIRST COMIC WITH 100% COMPUTER ART AS THE WHOLE THING WAS MADE ON A MACINTOSH. DON'T KNOW IF IT'S ANY GOOD BUT WELL WORTH IT JUST FOR THE GIMMICK

7 - THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #8


SQUIRREL GIRL HAS ENTERED MY COMICS MOUNT RUSHMORE ALONG WITH PLASTIC MAN, FLAMING CARROT AND HOWARD THE DUCK. I'VE BEEN READING THE TRADES FROM THE LIBRARY BUT I'LL GLADLY GRAB CHEAP SINGLE ISSUES. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON IN THIS COVER

6 - DRAGONRING #4


OH MY GOD THIS IS EVERYTHING I LOVE. MONSTERS! DRAGONS! SKULL IN THE TITLE! RANDOM INDIE PUBLISHER WITH A NAME LIKE A DOLLAR STORE EARBUD BRAND! AND ISSUE #4! THERE MIGHT BE AT LEAST 3 MORE OF THESE THINGS OUT THERE! KINDA HYPED FOR THIS ONE

5 - MIRACLEMAN #6


A MARVEL REPRINT I THINK? MIRACLEMAN'S ONE OF THOSE LEGENDARY COMICS SERIES THAT CHANGED THE WORLD AND BLAH BLAH BLAH. I PASSED THIS ONE UP MANY TIMES AND FINALLY PULLED THE TRIGGER BECAUSE ON SALE ONLY TO DISCOVER JUST NOW THAT IT'S ENCASED IN A POLY BAG. I SHOULD PROBABLY JUST FIND A PDF

4 - FELL #7


ONE OF THE MANY TIMES I GOT BACK INTO COMICS WAS ABOUT 15 YEARS AGO AND THIS WAS ONE OF THE TITLES I PUT ON MY INCREDIBLY SHORT LIVED PULL LIST. I LIKED WARREN ELLIS FROM TRANSMETROPOLITAN AND PICKED UP THIS EXPERIMENTAL DETECTIVE STORY  MAINLY BECAUSE IT WAS CHEAP. IT WAS GOOD TOO! WARREN AND I MUST HAVE SURFED THE SAME WEIRD NEWS AGGREGATORS AT THE TIME AS SOME OF THE STORIES SEEMED TO BE PULLED DIRECTLY FROM FARK.COM. THIS MIGHT COMPLETE MY RUN OF THE COMIC AS IT WENT ON HIATUS AFTER ISSUE 9

3 - CEREBUS #5 REPRINT


MORE EARLY AARDVARK. I HOPE CEREBUS STABS SOMEONE IN THIS ONE

2 - THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #33


YEAAAAAAAH MORE SQUIRREL GIRL. I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND THIS COVER. OMINOUS ENTRANCE TO A CRYPT. SWINGY SWORDS FROM THE CEILING. HUNGRY ALLIGATORS READY TO CHOMP. REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING WHO THE SEMI-REMEMBERED VILLAIN IS

1 - VERTIGO JAM #1


VERTIGO IS MY JAM. THIS ISN'T REALLY A JAM COMIC, MORE LIKE A SAMPLER ANTHOLOGY OF THE IMPRINT'S EARLY 90'S HITS. IT'S GOT SANDMAN, JOHN CONSTANTINE AND SWAMP THING STORIES IN THERE. HELL, JUST FINDING A NEW COMIC TO ADD TO MY SANDMAN PILE IS A HUGE WIN FOR ME. THIS TURNED OUT TO COST 6 CENTS PER STORY SO HOW CAN I GO WRONG?

YAY! I DID A THING. MAYBE WHEN I GET AROUND TO READING THEM I'LL DO A FOLLOW UP
