The Weekly Haul – Week of November 26, 2014

Yet again, I notice how the three DC weeklies make every week a rather large week anymore…

I’m quite disappointed to learn that the Gold Key books from DynamiteTurok and Magnus, at least, if I recall–have turned out to be ending at #12. As such, at this point I’ll finish out these runs but probably let the titles go from there (though time and mood will tell in the new year).

While I’d prefer the TMNT stuff be spaced out rather than clumped…it’s definitely cool to get two official TMNT books in one week!

I’ve liked the look of the Superman: A Celebration of 75 Years book, but wasn’t willing to pay $40 for it. At 70% off (~$12) it’s a steal. Invasion! and Millennium together cost about what 3 Marvel single issues would.

And these Superman Chronicles volumes (1, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 8) worked out to $4.50 apiece or about the same as a single Marvel issue, or cheaper than a single Annual/”special” issue. (Of course, now I “have to” track down volumes 3 & 7 likely closer to full price).

A HUGE week overall, but some great additions to the library, at a mere 30% of cover price. A bit of buyer’s remorse at first, but the more I look at stuff, and contemplate what others will be blowing on Black Friday stuff this week…this kind of WAS Black Friday for me, comics-wise.
