Unbridled Capitalism: Heroes & Dragons
This past Saturday, my wife, son and I went down to Columbia to visit the Riverbanks Zoo and then head over to Adama's new place for a housewarming party. But we started the day right with a trip to Heroes & Dragons, one of the largest comic shops in the state!
Hawkman -- The Hawkman stores were well stocked, and so I partook of them righteously. From Hawkworld, I picked up #11-13, 24, 27-28, and 31-32, leaving me three issues and an Annual from having the entire run. For Volume 3, I didn't get any actual issues entitled "Hawkman," but I did pick up the three issues of Guy Gardner: Warrior which crossed over with the title (along with JLA), issues #32-34. And from the last volume, when the title had changed to Hawkgirl, I added #46, 49, 56, and 61, along with the Secret Files and Origins special.
Other Stuff -- Only three miscellaneous comics this time out, all taken from a fifty-cent bin. Up first is Weird War Tales #87, since I always dig some Weird War Tales. Next was one which will make Diabolu Frank proud, Justice League of America #178, featuring the Martian Manhunter and Despero playing chess with the members of the Justice League. And finally, a more recent comic, Battle For The Cowl: Man-Bat, because Man-Bat rocks.
All in all not a bad haul! But this trip does further demonstrate that the last few remaining issues of Iron Man I need are going to be tougher to get, and I may have to break down and order them online (which I am loathe to do if I can get them in person instead). Still, I cannot complain about this load of Hawkman comics!
