Nice collection. After buying all the good collections in the Bay Area, I see it's time to move on to the next metro area. :lol:

Oldest issue is #12. First appearances of Hawkeye and Black Widow, among others (Modok, Mandarin). A couple of the early appearances of the original armor. Pretty sweet collection. Mostly 4.0-6.0, with a few higher or lower.

Probably not nearly as impressive as most of the stuff above, but wandered into a comic book store about 50 miles from home, dove into their $1 bins, and found an entire run of VH1 Archer & Armstrong, all in NM quality. Looks like they pulled them off the shelves and stored them, like they hadn't been touched in years! Snagged every copy of #0 (5 of them) and #1 (3 of them). Now most of these are worth about $1, but I was surprised on the shape they were in. Heck, worst case scenario, they are all readers!

Nice to see there are still dollar bins out there. I probably would have bought them all as well, especially in that condition.

I don't get it. Is it a red but the picture is the blue cover?

The one with X-O blasting feels familiar, like I should recognize it, but honestly I don't. I probably haven't thought about Chaos Effect cards in nearly a decade.

Is one of the cards rare? I know I have one of those Chaos cards on my want list, but have not actively searched for it.

The Convention Giveaway - H.A.R.D. Corps, Armorines & X-0 chaos effect card, has been sought out by many board members over the past years, and it has been posted by some in their wish list.

Finally got one of my favorites that I’ve been waiting for the right copy at the right price. Has the famous Batman “One Punch” scene that I still laugh at every time I read it.

It's hard to track down for sure but usually they go for pretty cheap. It took me a few years and I ended up paying $2-3 for it on eBay.

I've got to brag about this one. Won an auction for VH1 Harbinger 1-6 for $0.99 plus $3.99 shipping. To my surprise the seller actually shipped the books. I assumed they would be trashed and just wanted a reader copy, but was suprised when they came in really nice! The listing also said no coupons, but only issue 2 was missing the coupon, Issue 1's coupon was intact!! Original listing here:

I was on the road with the kids yesterday and stopped by a flea market. Bought several golden age books for $2, including a Batman 94. Low grade, but still. Origin retold.
