    I know that some of us can never find stuff whereas some OTers have an abundance of comics and collectibles at their local stores that are goldmines. This thread is for people to help each other out. Name your requests and maybe we can all help out to find you some stuff.

    Great idea. My area sucks for figures, but I can usually get decent deals on comics.

    the guy that owns my local shop owns the only one in town, so all he basically buys are they books that will sell. he doesn't keep much else as far as back issues. i talked to him today and he told me he can order copies of the big 4 books i'm looking for but i'm not sure if i'm going to be getting "long time, loyal, i spend $120 here easy a month" type friend prices or if he's going to tack on a bunch of retarded fees. :hs:

    I'm looking to get current with Invincible, Ex Machina, The Walking Dead, and Fables. The only issues I have are Walking Dead 22-25, that's it.

    I'm also missing Crimson 22, 23, and 24. I thought I bought the whole set off eBay, but I didn't know it went for 24 issues. :o

    And keep an eye out on any Vol5 Punisher, the current MAX series. I need issues 1-19 and book 31.

    should i go on? :hs: i can't get shit here :(

    Go ahead and keep going, I might even have some stuff I haven't had a chance to list yet, plus my comic guy has a bunch of stuff, and if he doesn't most stuff in the last year or two he can get me for cover price. Older than that, he usually goes by guide value, and right now some of that is half off. There is a guy on one of the other forums that has the Walking Dead tpbs, 1-4 for 15 plus shipping. Here's the link:

    how old are they? And how much are you willing to pay? I have a local comic shop that has a huge assortment, but they charge market for them.
