Comic Haul 4/29
No comic conventions this week, but that doesn't mean I didn't buy some books!
When I was a kid and I first got into comics, my parents bought me a box of comics from a catalog. It was basically a starter kit. Inside the box was The Nth Man #3. Nth Man was always pretty lame to me, and the character has kind of become a joke between my friend Dan [Twitter | Blog] and myself.
The group that I picked up was X-Men #1 through #11 (with the exception of #4, which I already had), the first annual, Uncanny X-Men #252, and Uncanny X-Men #258.
With that, I have completed the set! I already had Rogue's first appearance in Avengers Annual #10 and Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #6.
I ordered Daredevil #241 which Todd did the interior art for, and I ordered Quasar #14, which he did the cover for. The Quasar cover is super cool, and if this had been the first issue I had ever seen of Quasar as a kid, I guarantee I would have been on board! At least until I realized that McFarlane wasn't going to do anything else in the book besides the one cover.
Overall, I'm pretty pleased with my purchases this week!
