A Sad story

#1 Posted by MuadDiab (331 posts) - - Show Bio

X-23 is my favorite female character, full stop. I got into her through X-Force and now her ongoing series. In the last few months I was reading up on her, and saw her first comics appearance was NYX #3. It struck me that I recognized the cover. Not just to that issue but most of them. Then yesterday I remembered from where! 
 
It was from a second hand book store that had many a shelf of unorganized single issues. I had been there less than a year ago and seen the entire 6 issues of NYx and was tempted to buy at the time for the art.  
So I rushed in this morning, hoping the issues (especially 3) were still there. The store had changed slightly, There were a lot less issues  in general there. I flicked though them all. No NYX.... 
 
A guy who worked there came over, 'Looking for something in particular?' I told him I was looking for Nyx issues. He said he kind of remembered those. He had thrown out a bunch of issues at random and said he was 80% sure that all those Nyx ones were part of em, after I'd described the covers. 
 
Heartbroken, so close. I mean, someone else didn't even get it. It was thrown out!!! Laura's first appearance! Sigh.....

Her first appearance was actually in the X-Men Evolution TV series. And I don't think her character was really well defined in the comics until her series Innocence Lost and Target X.

@tim2081: ya I knew that, and did say first comics appearance in the original post. Those 2 series are great though

Thrown away? That's worse than when I gave mine away... that issue alone is worth stupid money :p

@xerox-kitty: I know right. I'm in such a bad mood now. Even though I only wanted it since yesterday because I remembered seeing it.  
 
It felt like fate when I remembered because I had just finished this link 
I can't believe you gave it away........

I know what you mean.  It drives me nuts when the book shops dobn't have trades in so I have to resort to using Amazon.

 

Well, I gave it away before NYX had even finished.  I wasn't enjoying the story & the giant hype surrounding the first comic appearance of the character from X-Men: Evolution was hugely disappointing.  So I gave them away to a girl who I thought would appreciate them.  I don't even see her any more... so I hope she knows what she's got & takes care of it :(

@xerox-kitty: I caved! I just bought the issue on ebay. 
 
Just out of curiosity, what's the most you yourself would pay for it? (£'s)

I'm a cheapskate & still kick myself for missing the whole series for £9. If you don't mind me asking... how much did you pay?

@AgeofHurricane:

X-Men: Evolution

@xerox-kitty: £30's +3 to Ireland. 
I may regret this. 
 
 
And to think I nearly bought the whole series also for what would have been €6

£30 for NYX?! 
 
You must like the series. I bought the trade ages ago.
