Helping You to Buy Good Comics for 6/17/06

Occasionally, I like to search for some auctions to point out good deals for you folks for some good comics. Let's begin!

Today's "Helping You to Buy Good Comics" is a themed one. It is about specifically all the great 1980s comics that you can purchase for a very reasonable price at auctions, which I will point out right now!

There is a nice chunk of Walt Simonson's Mighty Thor run available, which can be found here, for a current bid of $10.24 (all prices include shipping to the United States).337, 338, 340, 341, 342, 343, 344, 345, 346, 347,348-354 are included, for a total of 17 issues in all. #337 was Simonson's first issue! The auction ends in four days.

I am a bit torn on whether Blue Devil is, in fact, a good comic, but I know it has some fans out there, so feel free to check out this auction here. It includes 1, 2, 4-12, 14-16, 19-26, 28-31, and Annual 1 of Dan Mishkin and Gary Cohn's 80s funny book.

For a current bid of $18.49, you can bid on a pretty big Iron Man run from the late 70s/early 80s (mostly 80s), which includes a lot of David Michelinie, Bob Layton and John Romita Jr.'s run. The issues are 99-105, 107-111, 113-117, 127, 135-139, 148-149, 151-152, 154-160. Here is the auction. It is ending in about four days.

Another Iron Man lot with those issues included is located here. For a current bid of $10.25, you can get every issue between #125 and #164, save #128, 144, & 150 (which is also missing from the other auction - weird, eh?). The auction is ending in five days.

For a current bid of $5.04, you can pick up most of the first Armor Wars, which wasn't a GREAT storyline, but pretty good. It is ending in about four days. Check it out here.

Here is an auction for what I thought was a particularly nice run by Steve Englehart on West Coast Avengers, specifically, the time-travel storyline. Good stuff, I thought. Issues #16-30. The current bid is $10.98, and the bidding is closing in less than a day!

This one seller is doing a series of 20-book lots.

Here are a couple of auctions he is doing of Roger Stern's Avengers run.

#228-247 (current bid of $14.99, ending in a day) - here.

#248-267 (current bid of $10.99, ending in a day) - here.

#268-287 (current bid of $14.99, ending in a day) - here.

While we're at it, while it isn't necessarily 80s, this deal seemed quite interesting, so I'm including it. This one auction is currently at $26.50, and it is for Avengers #151-200!! FIFTY comics! And some classics in there (Korvac Sage, among others). Check it out here (ending in three days).

Here's a nice Daredevil auction with some Miller issues. #178, 180, 185-187, 189, 191, 193, 195, & 196. Current bid is $9.99. Ending in less than a day!

For just a current bid of $12, you can pick up Daredevil #179-195 (as well as the What If..? issue Miller did featuring Daredevil and Elektra). Check it out here. Ending in three days!

This auction is ending in a week, but it is quite an interesting deal. Uncanny X-Men #144-166, then 167,168-170,172,174-176,187,199. The current bid is $19.99.

Finally, here is a run of Justice League/International/America #1-30, along with the first three annuals. It is ending today, and the current bid is $15.75.

Hope some of y'all find some use out of this!
