Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you bought?

It's been a while (I don't have a local shop sadly) but last one's I picked up were:

Batman: The New 52 #18
Batman Inc.: The New 52 #8
Batman and Robin: The New 52 #18

I don't buy a lot of single issues but got caught up in the death of Damian hype (even though I doubt the issue will be worth anything).

Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you bought?

Just received a cheap misc lot from ebay. It included 50 or so random items. New comics, old 12 cent comics, promo comics, trades. One new to me item was a B&W advance copy.

^ That's neat. What do you type into eBay to find a mix like that? Grab Bag or something?

I think I found it when searching "lot", one of my standard comic searches when I'm in a buying frenzy.

Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you bought?

I just spent $73 for a 40 issue lot on ebay that included a 1958 Challengers of the Unknown #1!

It'd be a $500 book if it was mint. And had a cover.

Picked up the last 2 issues of Batman for the Zero Year arc. Very "meh" towards it (Has Batman always been 3.99 or are they gouging for this arc alone?)

You really need to stop posting these covers. I'm getting the itch to buy random lots from eBay again.

Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you bought?

The Chris and Vicki version of Dial H were among my first DC Comics. I've got the Showcase collection with all the Robbie stories, but I'd love a collection of the Chris and Vicki stuff.

My most recent purchases were the first two issues of Batman 66. They weren't bad, but they weren't as good as I was hoping they'd be.

I loved the Chris & Vicki Dial H books. It seemed to peter out when they became a Superboy back up but the Adventure Comics run was fantastic. I've been picking up better copies because I read mine to shreds. I didn't care too much for the H.E.R.O. title that came out a few years ago. Nor the New52 version.

I was disappointed with the first issue and stopped there.

Did you read the followup story in New Teen Titans for the Dial H kids? I remember it being really dark...

Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you bought?

No. I had no idea they continued their story after the Superboy backups.

EDIT: Just got back from "lunch" (skipped lunch, hit comic store). Picked up:

Low Society
Action Comics #23.2 (General Zod)
Aquaman #23.1 (Black Manta)
Batman And Robin #23.2 (The Court Of Owls)

Eternal Warrior #1

Re: What's the last comic (single issue) you bought?

I'm resisting most of the DC gimmick 3D covers; but did pick up two of them last week; the Justice League title and my first Teen Titans of the new 52.
