Your store sells CDs, eh? Any good DC stuff in the mix?
Well, there you go! Now you know, and…
I’m sure your store will be happy to see you when you come in for the sale with dollar signs in your eyes.
Exactly! To quote The Amazing Panda Adventure, “Its just like Indiana Jones.”, as you never know what you’ll find!
Unless DC gets the Star Trek license from Paramount again, they likely won’t be coming anytime soon.
However, don’t give up and do think positively! You never know what will happen in the future.
They’re usually out in the open and easily seen…unless a store has a bin (or bins) full of crap they too shameful to admit they have.
My store has their dollar bins on folding tables, with each short box having “$1 comics” written on their front side. The tables are across the way from the New Releases wall, which is good placement, so as to hook customers as they turn from the NR section, see the bins and say “Sweet, dollar bins!”.
At least, that’s what I said when I saw them.
Dollar bins and good deals on action figures are my con priorities.
I can read about Big Name News Reveal online and don’t need to sit in a huge crowd (or stand in line for hours to then sit among said crowd) for that.
While its awesome to meet the talent that produce/produced our favorite comics and other media, I generally don’t care about autographs.
Good/great and beyond deals on comics and toys, though? Those (and a cosplay contest or two) are what I go to a con for.
M’kay, so! claps hands I found some spiffy books in the 'ol dollar bins this week. Among my finds were (I’m not posting photos of most of these as I don’t have the time, right now):
The Human Race #s 2-7.
I’d never heard of this mini, but it looked interesting so I snagged it. I couldn’t find #1 in the dollar bins or in the regular back issue bins, but its likely an easy snag on eBay, so I’ll get it at some point.
Blood Pack #1.
Again, hadn’t heard of it, but $1 for a new to me #1? Sold!
Armageddon: Inferno #4.
This one touted the return of the Justice Society on its cover, and with the news of the Justice Society making their latest return this November, this was one (and the only issue of the series that I saw in the bins) that I felt was a must-get.
Action Comics Annual #4.
Part of Eclipso: The Darkness Within, this one hooked me as:
. Its Superman-related.
. Shazam is in it.
. It has a snazzy Joe Quesada cover, seen below:
I’m good on dollar bin digging for the next couple weeks (I have to read the stuff I recently bought, after all ), but if anyone has snagged some rad books from their dollar bins, feel free to share your pick-ups.
