Sweet Flea-Market Finds Again, Again:

~So, I made it out to the The Dirt-Mall this past Saturday and spent a whopping THREE DOLLARS!

Here's what I got:

~Three for a dollar comics... Can't go wrong with any random Swamp Thing issues. Especially if Grant Morrison and Mark Millar's names are on the cover!   
AVP: Duel #'s 1 and 2 of 2 (which was a very nice, quick, little hit-all-the-highlights-and-we're-out story).
Firestorm Vs. The Phantom Stranger?  -Take my money!  
And 2099 A.fter D.oom... sure- it was the beginning of the end... but still: Spider-Man 2099!!!

Also, because I'm a super sophisticated guy- I picked up this old, and sun-damaged, gem for a buck:

-I am the very model of a modern Major-General,
I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I know the Kings of England, and I quote the fights historical,
From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical;
I'm very well acquainted too with matters mathematical,
I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical,
About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot o' news---
With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse... 

Yeah, you may not know this about me- but I am a HUGE Gilbert and Sullivan fan...

I implore you to expose yourselves to some class, rather than just exposing yourselves!


  1. i had that AVP 2 issue mini back when i used to pick up a lot of the Darkhorse stuff that had to do with ALIENS, Predator and Terminator. i can't hardly remember anything about that mini story wise but the art work was pretty damn good. i never cared for the whole Marvel 2099 spin off titles but i'm sure that Firestorm/Phantom Stranger issue will be a pretty good read.

    1. -It's a pretty "standard" book... Distress call, abandoned Planet, Marines, Predators, Aliens, fighting, a hybrid, unlikely team-up, everyone dies... THE END. But it was a fun little diversion. Quick read... hits the highlights...
      I only cared about Spider-Man 2099 because of Peter David, and X-Men 2099 because of Ron Lim... And yup- Firestorm / Phantom Stranger was very cool!

  2. Cool, cool finds dude.
    I've never had or have any of these, but I'm fucking with ya' on the Firestorm/Phantom Stranger fight. Hell's yeah!

    1. Right on, right on...
      Yeah, dude- it was a good issue. I'll have some stuff from it in next Monday's post.

  3. British comedy is the best! Blackadder, Ab Fab, Some Mothers Do Have Em, and thousands of others, are my secret addiction. I remember the major general riff from high school days - nice find!

    As for the comic book haul, I'm looking forward to what Dark Horse does with its revival of the Alien/Predator/Prometheus line this year. They need to bang more drums about it and not just exclusive CBR ones. The crossovers they did back in the 90's with A and P were awesome. Batman Judge Dredd and Magnus Robot Fighter especially.

    1. -Love me some Blackadder! My ex liked Ab Fab- tried to get me to watch it... I could not stand it. My favorite is a show called 'Allo! Allo! Being in The States- I used to always catch PBS airing it back in the day... But now, with the modern marvel that is The Internet; it's not hard at all for me to find awesome new British shows! Like Plebs, Sirens, Badults, Drifters, No Heroics, The Bletchley Circle, and Yonderland.

      Yeah, I have not even heard about the Aliens / Predator revival going on! -So they DO need to bang more drums about it. Dudge, Predator versus Magnus Robot Fighter was my all-time favorite! I tout that crossover often. The Batman / Dredd books were very good as well, I have the first three crossovers they did... I know there were a few more after that, though.
