One of my friends showed up after I told her she could probably find Grimm Fairy Tales comic books at the sale. She ended up finding theGrimm Fairy Tales TPB Box Set (2009 Vol. 1-6) for $60! Man, that's a great deal in my opinion. She said that she probably won't donate these to the library after she's done reading them, but she'll probably give them to me when she's done reading them. I stayed silent and played it cool, but I really wanted to yell out "Byyyyaaaaaahh!" in victory. She also gave me a sweet Punisher jersey that she had laying around for free. I found a whole bunch of cool comics too. Some of the highlights I got from my dig were a hardcover graphic novel of Hexed, Black Canary #1 (limited to 50 copies signed by Tony Bedard with a certificate of authenticity from Dynamic Forces), Marvel Comics Presents #1 (limited to 90 copies signed by Marc Guggenheim with a DF CoA), New Mutants #1 Dynamic Forces Variant (limited to 699 copies with a DF CoA), and some $1 books like Cerebus #'s 25 & 27, Marvel Team-Up #46, and Spectacular Spider-Man #'s 26 & 27. I ended up getting 15 raffle tickets & hoped for a winning call back!
Well, I didn't win the tickets to Comic-Con, but I did win 3 other prizes! One of their employees left me a voice mail saying I won a Northstar bust, 3 booster packs for HEROCLIX, and a Nexus Vol. 2 trade from Dark Horse Comics. After I listened to the voice mail, I was like SWEET! But then I thought of the bust they said I won... When I called back, I was like, "Isn't Northstar the gay from Alpha Flight?" He quickly corrected me and asked what kind of prize would that be? He said it was from the manga. Then I was like, "Oooooh, Fist of the North Star..." Man, we were both cracking up! I had a fun weekend!
