A Couple ASM Upgrades

As part of my recent purchases I was able to upgrade a couple of my Amazing Spider-Man issues.

I bought #31 in VG, which is a nice upgrade to my existing copy that is missing a chunk in the upper left corner.

I also bought a new copy of #102 to replace my heavily-creased copy.

Detective Comics

As part of my recent purchases, I bought several Detective Comics.  I'm mostly a Marvel collector, Spider-Man in particular, but I really only need five more issues of Amazing Spider-Man, so I've been looking for something else to get into.

I don't plan on trying to complete a whole run, but I"m picking up the ones that look interesting.

The oldest one I bought was #321.

#373 features Mr. Freeze.

I can't resist a Joker cover, such as #388.

I've recently gotten interested in Neal Adams' art, so I was happy to pick up #402 and #407.

Some Old School Batman

I've been doing too much buying on the message boards over at CGC, but I've bought some cool books at good prices.

Included in the books I bought are a few old Batmans.  I was excited to buy my first 10 cent cover price Batman: #125.

I also bought copies of #165 and #196.

I'll post a few of the other books I bought over the next few days.  I'm still waiting for one package that was shipped from Canada.  It appears to have been in Chicago about a week ago, but the tracking info hasn't bee updated since.
