Well I did it… I found a full set of The New Mutants at an affordable price. OR did I?
The price was great but there was one issue missing…. the famous first appearance of Deadpool… issue 98
Damn that issue. My OCD wants it but on ebay the cheapest I found was US$255 and it wasn’t even mint.
It’s crazy I tells ya. I’m at the stage where I’d pay $30+ for a poor quality one just to complete my collection.
My OCD is strong, but my wallet is not $255 strong. I can’t justify that much money for a single comic.
What I hate more is that I once owned this comic but lost it in a move or at a party or during a group reading session.
But let’s look on the bright side I now own issues 1 through 97 and 99 & 100 😀
Enough whinging… deep down I’m happy as larry I now have the almost complete set. It’s just the OCD that has an issue.
I have hours and hours of Warlock, Cannon Ball, Danielle, Wolfsbane, Cypher, Birdbrain, Asgard, Cable, Magneto, Sunspot, Karma, Magma, Magik, Boom Boom, Rictor, Skids, Rusty, and so on fun to be had!!!!
AB-solutely nothing to complain about. 🙂 🙂 🙂
I look forward to reading them all and summarising them all for this very site.
And maybe one day….. one day I’ll get my hands on a issue 98… even if it’s in poor condition 😉
