Quarter Bin Finds!

Three or four times per year, my local comic book shop pulls out the boxes of 25-cent comics, and I usually go!  A few days ago, my daughter and I went, and here is what I came home with:

Fantastic Four, issues 279, 287 & 375, all of which are stories that feature Doctor Doom. Any story with good ol' Victor is worth at least a quarter!

Rune (from Malibu Comics, 1995), issues 4 & 5. I bought these because they were written by my blog-buddy and recent guest on the Book Guys Show, Paul O'Connor from the Longbox Graveyard blog.

ROM Spaceknight, issues 8, 10, 15, 17, 22, 33, 55, 65, 70, and Annuals 2 & 4. At one point in my life, I had the entire run of ROM, all 75 issues and the 4 Annuals. I sold them when I moved about 15 years ago, but thanks to my most recent few trips to the 25-cent bins, I have managed to track down 67 of the 79 issues. I hope to fill in those holes, then I will re-read it all.

Warlord, issues 37, 39, 43, 50, 57, 78, 85, 102, 103, 112, & 121. Similar to ROM, I once had a huge run of Warlord, and sold them when I moved about 15 year ago. Now I am just missing the more expensive issues 1-36, and about a dozen of the other 100.

Starslayer: The Director's Cut, issues 1-8. More Mike Grell goodness. This one looks like Warlord ... in space!

Mike Grell's Shaman's Tears, issues 0, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, & 12.  Now I am only missing #1. What can I say? I am a big fan of Grell.
