Anyone familiar with the Comic Reader fanzine series? I found a box of these in near perfect condition for $1 each at the flea market this past weekend. I grabbed a stack and this issue kinda threw me for a loop at first. It's issue 179, Death of Stan Lee April Fools cover from April 1980. Now that Stan is 94 years old, this doesn't seem funny. This particular issue seems to be pretty valuable. I never saw or heard of this magazine previously. Swipe to see more pics. πŸ€”

$1 flea market find: Wolverine 88 (1994) first Wolverine vs Deadpool battle with iconic Adam Kubert cover. Saw that this had some creases and spine ticks but was otherwise clean. Swipe to see the results of a 10 minute press. I usually leave books in the press for a minimum of 8 hours, but wanted to see what a quick press would do. Steamed for a few seconds, pressed at 180 degree heat for 10 minutes and pulled it out. Pretty happy at the results! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

This arrived yesterday so I'm a day late with #mailcallmonday : shout out to @age_of_silver for an excellent transaction on two books! Great packaging and communication, swipe to see the comics and the note he included. Turns out I was his first buyer! Check out his IG and give him a follow! Hopefully he'll be doing lots more comic deals, buying and selling! Thanks again Wyatt! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Early morning flea market comic book hunting. My buddy found first appearance of Hellboy and Phantom 1 1962 Gold Key comic in these bins. I'll post my finds from today shortly #sundayfunday #fleamarketfinds β€’

Traveling for a bit and made it to the new expanded Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, MD. It's an amazing shop, with a great selection of new stock and now with room for the old stock. They built custom drawers with plexiglass doors that make it easy to dig through the back stock bins. For the new stock, they have recent issues stocked that other shops have sold out of. They still have the lenticular cover Batman and Flash variant along with the hot first printing of Batman 24 at cover price. I wish there was a shop like this in San Francisco. But the best part of the shop is the people, all the employees are super friendly and knowledgeable. They all seem genuinely happy and having a good time helping people find comics or make recommendations. If any of you find yourself in the Annapolis area, the is a special place to visit. I grabbed a stack of Silver Age Batman and Detective Comics from their back stock at good prices. I'll post my pick ups later. Thanks Third Eye! πŸ€™πŸ½πŸ€˜πŸΌπŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Picked up this affordable Captain America 111 copy at The Berkeley Comic Con. There was major warping but really clean otherwise, I thought It was a good candidate for a press. I was right, swipe to see the before and after photos. Had to steam and press it over two sessions to get this result. Still experimenting with the process but it's fun and satisfying restoring these classics! I can't afford to pay top dollar for the high grade keys so this may be my one way to fill in the holes in my collection on a budget. πŸ’ŽπŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

Went out to Castro Valley in the East Bay to meet some friends for lunch, and stopped by Crush Comics And Cards for the first time. Only had 5 minutes to browse the back stock but did find one item I was missing for a decent price: Uncanny X-Men 128. Would like to spend more time digging another time. Looks like a cool shop, anyone go here regularly? β€’

Marvel Special Edition Star Wars 1 (1977) Treasury Size movie adaptation, art by Howard Chaykin. $2 pick up, found in the bottom of a cardboard box by a guy selling hard and softcover books. Not in the best condition, could use a clean and press but for the price, I'll take it. #fleamarketfinds β€’

Tagged by @comickahn for 90's fun, #90sfuncomics here's Marc Spector: Moon Knight 19 (Oct. 1990) Rob Liefeld cover. They have Moon Knight, SpiderMan, and the Punisher but they have the name Wolverine who "does not appear in this comic" front and center. Making fun of how popular Wolverine was at that time, his guest appearance would send any issue soaring. β€’

Flea Market finds: ASM 43 (1966) 2nd appearance of the Rhino and 1st full appearance of Mary Jane (according to a few databases) with cameo by Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson! Also ASM King Sized Annual 4 thrown in for free. ASM 4 is in VG+ to FN- condition, complete, solid staples nice gloss and edges. I almost forgot to post this Sunday's #fleamarketfinds because I had so many comics from The Berkeley Comic Con to go through! I don't usually collect the ASM run but when a I find a bargain, I tend to buy em. Nice John Romita Sr. art. πŸ€™πŸ½πŸ’ŽπŸ”₯

After buying comics at various shows and on IG, I've noticed a trend in business card design from a few dealers. The design sure makes sense but seems like everyone uses the same template! These guys are all great by the way, awesome comics and solid deals. I might need to get a side hustle designing comic dealer cards! @shadowsip @cmasone23 @comiccommandcenter and Harvey Doss (you need to get on IG) @thebatcavecomicsandtoys #igcomics #igcomicfamily #comicdealer #allthesame #businesscarddesign #ohmancomics

Calexit 1 (2017) variant CA flag cover B, by Black Mask Publishing. Heard good things about this book so I called my lcs to put it on hold. When I picked up my pull list I saw the sigs! Yeah, they had a signing and had enough extras that they included them for regular customers. Paid cover price! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ”₯πŸ’ŽπŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

Part 13 Berkeley Comic Con #comicshaul : Creepy 5 (1965) with Frazetta cover and Deadly Hands of Kung Fu 29 (1976). Affordable higher mid-grade copies I got as part of a bundle. My collection is all over the place but I think I might be more active in looking for these 70's magazine format series. There were some incredible talent working on these series. The stories are a great read and the art is fantastic with the larger format. I think this is it for my #berkeleycomiccon postings. I got a lot of books last weekend and am already looking forward to the next one! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ”₯πŸ’Ž

Part 12 Berkeley Comic Con #comicshaul a set of mid grade early Eerie Magazines featuring Frazetta covers: Eerie 2, 3, 5 and 8. Got these for a good deal as part of a bundle. Frank Frazetta has been my favorite artist since I was a kid so pretty happy to add these books to my personal collection. πŸ”₯πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ’₯

Part 11 Berkeley Comic Con #comicshaul : Marvel Preview 11 and 14, second and third appearance of Starlord. Purchased for less than $10 each as part of a bundle. Pretty nice higher mid grade copies. Been digging these magazine size books from the 70's, and buying them up when the price is right. πŸ’₯πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

Part 10 Berkeley Comic Con #comicshaul : The Tomahawk issue is a Neal Adams cover I got for $5 at Half Priced books on my way to the con, the JLA 13 was $5, and issue 49 was $3. The Showcase 56 was $5. The rest of this bunch were $1 finds. Yep, that's a DC 100 Page Super Spectacular 4 classic Wrightson cover for $1! Missing back cover but presents well, been looking for an affordable copy for awhile. I love these cheap slightly beat up fillers to fill in the gaps in my collection. I can always upgrade later. πŸ€™πŸ½

Part 9 Berkeley Comic Con #comicshaul picked up a few major keys that I was missing in a few series. Already have Nick Fury Agent of Shield 4 but this is a nice upgrade. Been after these two Captain America issues at a price I was willing to pay at the condition I was happy with. Hulk 271, first Rocket Raccoon! Frank Miller Wolverine 2, I have 1,34 but was missing 2 until now. So glad to get this VFN copy for very good price, got it at less than 1/3rd of what I was offered for one at the same condition recently on IG. Patience pays off. And that Journey Into Mystery 1 Vol. 2 was $3, I have the second issue already so this was a nice score. πŸ’ŽπŸ”‘πŸ€™πŸ½πŸ’₯

Part 8 Berkeley Comic Con #comicshaul old school horror goodness: Unexpected 110, 111, 115, 121, and 129. All awesome covers with Neal Adams art on 115 and 121! Got these thrown in as part of a large bundle deal at the show. Who else loves this series? I always pick these up if I can find them in the $1 bins. These are all VFN higher grade copies. πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

Part 6 #comicshaul from The Berkeley Comic Con: Tales To Astonish 82, 83, 85, and 100. All higher mid grade, FN to VFN! After this score, all I need is issue 90 then I'll have issues 72-101. I have a few of the earlier issues also but I have no plans on completing this run. I'm happy to live vicariously through @toddforce1 on his quest, (good luck bro!) as my funds are rather limited. But when the opportunity strikes I'll keep picking these up if I can find them in the wild for good prices. πŸ’ŽπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ”₯
