Buying Comics

Melbourne's a great city to pick up cheap reading. Here's a few recent comic gems I've found at markets, second hand bookshops and opportunity shops. All costing one or two clams apiece.

Shaky Kane! From freebie box at my LCS.

Sometimes it's nice to dip into some juvenile DC Thomson comics, although the IPC titles were always a preference as a kid.

Not a comic, but every now and then I like to pull a book of letters from an author I dig out of the Pikitia Press library and read a few. Published in 2001, this volume retailed for 90 coconuts! I picked it up from the Bookhouse for 4 clams. The Bookhouse man mentioned in those days book retailers could charge that much for a book and folk would fill their houses with them. Now he finds folk offering him shelves of them and for him they're virtually unsellable. Holy Smokes! 90 Coconuts!!
