It wasn’t nearly as massive as my November haul, but here’s my little December haul:
Back Issue – Batman the Animated Series 25th Anniversary issue – September 2017
I’m a little behind, but there was A LOT to get pics of, for this haul. So, bear with me on this nerdy journey.
I’m a sucker for Batman everything. Two Batman stockings and a Batcave gingerbread kit from Walmart.
I decided to start posting a monthly haul of what is added to my Batman collection, starting with September. Some months, there could be little to nothing. Other months, we could be at this a while haha. This was a decent month.
It’s no secret that Sean Murphy’s Batman: White Knight was a massive hit with readers. Gorgeous art by the same guy writing it? A cured Joker? TWO HARLEYS?! Not to mention the loads of other fantastic plot points and interesting character twists that really make this book stand out.
My haul from this con is more signature based, than things purchased, though I did buy some things while there.
Met Tom King again, and had these pretties signed.
This is a reoccurring reminder every time I go shopping before any trip.
Yup. I do. So, tell me, how’d I go to buy some jeans for my trip, and end up with all this?
Okay. Let’s reason, a bit, here:
There was a sale at All the Rage comics (which I need to do a proper post on, sometime), where everything I bought was either 50% or 25% off. So, the three comics toward the bottom were 50%. Then the 1986 trade paperback of The Dark Knight Returns was 25% off, and I ended up paying less than $10 for it. Then that copy of Metal was 25% off, and I’d been wanting that particular cover. Decent and fairly inexpensive haul, there.
The Lil Gotham issues were $2.99 at V-stock, and actually came with a second issue behind each one. So I walked away with issues #1-4, plus my mom bought them for me. So, zero spent on those four issues.
I needed to buy a small purse, and planned to make this purchase, because I don’t want to haul my con bag around outside of the con itself. I mainly just needed a place to shove a few items in that zips. So, I went into Hot Topic to have a look. They were having a sale: if you bought any bag, if you put anything into the bag, you’d get 25% off the bag AND the item. So, the Tiffany Pop! from Bride of Chucky got shoved into the Harley bag. I left paying less for both than I would have for just the bag, itself. SCORE!
I did get my jeans and other miscellaneous clothing items I needed for my trip. But the point was showing that I could still make a haul like the one above, save a bunch of money, and still be ready for a con that is now ONE WEEK AND ONE DAY AWAY! Whoa. I should finish packing…
