Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you bought?
 
I remember that Flash issue quite well. I can still remember the day I bought it as a back issue when I was 12 or 13. I was always a sucker for back-up stories. My copy has always had a small crease along the top staple. It's funny what comic book issues trigger memories and others disappear down the rabbit hole.

I just picked up Quantum and Woody #3, the original series from back in the 1990s. Fruitlessly looking for Blu-rays at Dollar Tree, I came across this issue for $1. Dollar Tree has been carrying polybagged comics for a few months now, mostly of 90s filler. A few decent issues have been found among the Image garbage.

This was apparently put out by Acclaim Comics. Didn't Valiant fold and get bought out by Acclaim?

Got a decent haul of old Detective Comics and a few random Punisher issues from my local shop. The owner just moved and put out a bunch of backstock. Not all are in the best shape but I'm reading them anyways.

2 Neal Adams books and 2 Marshall Rogers books w/Adams reprint. Not a bad haul. :)

Yeah, he actually had more from around that same era I might go back and scoop up.

Is it me or did Detective Comics have the coolest covers in the 70s and 80s? They always seemed to have better covers than Batman itself.

Yeah. They were more interesting and darker than the Batman comic. I really liked the 100 page covers by Aparo.

Definitely. There are so many classic covers under the Detective Comics label.

Super Sons #1, the new Rebirth title with Damian and Jon (Superman's son now going by Superboy) teaming up together.

I liked it a lot, the banter and chemistry between them works. Damian is Damian and Jon is what you would expect for a kid raised by Clark and Lois. They really should design a better Superboy costume, however. I'd love to see Billy Batson cross their paths.

Man, I didnít even realize but itís been over a year since I bought a single issue and since anyone has posted here. I donít have a local shop anymore but ordered a copy of Action Comics 1000 and was out of town this weekend and got a couple issues randomly (they just were a couple that caught my eye).

My latest:
Action Comics #1000(1960s variant cover)
Star Trek: The Next Generation- Mirror Broken: Origin of Data (got this with a Loot Crate box actually)
Thanos: Annual #1
Venom #164 (The Nativity)
Venom #165 (The Nativity Conclusion)

Also picked up:
Batman Volume 2: I Am Suicide (Rebirth)

If anyone has heard of a new chain called 2nd & Charles, mostly a used bookstore place with CDs and toys as well, I've been picking up a few single back issues from them due to their decent pricing. They have a comic book section full of bagged back issues and very reasonable prices.

I picked up the Super Sons/Dynomutt crossover special from them for a cool 80 cents.

Bought Savage Avengers: Director's Cut #1 & DCeased #1. Good stuff on both counts but barreled through them in no time.

With a daunting new pile of Superman and Action comics, I decided to start with the Bendis run. This will get me "current" while I begin my quest of catching up on ten years.
