This last week brought me a comic book show, Ebay sale, tons of supplies, and 300+ comics!!!

Last week Friday (FINALLY.....slow shipping seller) I received a bundle of comics I had won on Ebay.  163 issues of X-Title goodness.   I got lucky as it was a solid deal, with some books I had really wanted to check out, and some to replace my old long gone collection.

The next morning (Madison, WI) I went to my first comic book show in least 15 years.  A small show (one vendor room) run by a guy that does similar shows all over the midwest (http://epguides.com/comics/).








My nabs:

All issues in this next pic were half off ...except the Annual #14 (1st Gambit cameo), and the Secret Wars #8).  #201 1st Nathianel (Cable as baby), some Fall of the Mutants goodness... Annual #10 1st Longshot, #268 a long time fave issue...all in SUPERB shape....Uncanny #166, one of my favorite covers of all time...


CHEAP tpb's, and free issues for being on the mailing list.

A seller with 2/$1 boxes, and a Gladiator figure I found at Target afterwards (HAD to have it).

The rest of these pics were from the 50 books for $20 seller (who runs the shows):







Finally earlier today I stocked up on supplies needed for all the new goodness (and some random comics just happened to fall into my hands lol):
