I had some reservations about featuring the copy of Killing Joke this week because it’s the only book out of the four whose price doesn’t end in a nine. That’s The Joker for you I suppose. That dude is always throwing off the equilibrium, isn’t he? Batman: The Killing Joke, first print, Very Fine/Near Mint […]

Treasury Edition crossovers! For those who may be unfamiliar, these here are BIG comics – “big” in terms of physical dimensions, not “big” in the figurative sense. “Big” as in larger than ordinary comics, not “big” as in “bigger than sliced bread” big. Although if you find these comics to be “big” in the figurative […]

Amazing Spider-Man #39! I never get tired of looking at that cover. Poor guy is getting keelhauled behind the Goblin Glider. That is some predicament to find oneself in!
