The Bloggity Session for 4/22/16: Sorting Through the Back Issues

Welcome to my daily column idea, The Bloggity Session. This is my way of talking about whatever is popping into my mind and gives me a loose way to update you all on what I’m up to. Right now it has been sorting out further on my back issue adventures. I’m finally narrowing it down to what I want to write about here. Writing about series in long form is actually one of my bigger plans for this blog o’mine here. I like back issues, I love finding cool series that haven’t been collected, and also from time to time I just love hunting for back issues. You don’t get that as often nowadays depending on where you are but around here, I find I have ample opportunity to do my fair share of back issue hunting. Yet on some stuff I even have to do the grand internet wander of hitting up the stores and sellers to find stuff. I do love though when my local Half Price Books has issue packs collecting four or more books for usually between three to seven dollars, that is always a good time. Of course lately I’ve mostly found a strange bit of Lobo, Azrael, and other assorted random. Hence why I have a mycomicshop.com order on the way completing my Power Company run, and a couple more weird things I want to talk about as I didn’t know they existed until recently.

Recently I saw images of this odd What If? that Rob Liefeld did art for and it looked totally bonkers, which means I needed it in my life. Turns out it was What If? #7 from Vol. 2 of the series. As I was already making the Power Company part of my order I figure why not add the What If? to the haul right? Then I discovered this other book called the Nth Man, which I had never heard of until recently. It was released back in 1989 and written by Larry Hama and in the small bit I have heard about it, this sounds amazing. I won’t say too much as if this promises what I think it should, oh this is going to be something to look forward to experiencing first hand. I somehow have an Excalibur issue that has the Nth Man in it too, so I am surprised this didn’t hit my radar until now. As for The Power Company, it’s a DC series that I always meant to read more of but some how slipped past me somewhere along the way. I am a fan of Kurt Busiek so anything with him involved I am likely to be game to give a go.  I am looking forward to all of this immensely, the order is also supposed to be here on Monday so I am excited!

What if? Vol. 2 #7 Marvel Comics Cover

 

See that cover of What if? and realize why I could not wait to have this craziness in my life. I always like to say in my comic reading, I read everything and I just love comics by golly. I have all sorts of cool back issues on the way and this should be a great time. Now with this first edition of The Bloggity Session out of the way, let the daily adventures begin here. In between larger pieces I plot out, The Bloggity Sessions are my relaxed times just talking comics and whatever else pops into my mind. Put it this way, this is me chatting with you all a bit. Thanks for reading and to all of you who have been reading my blog thus far, thank you so much. The best is yet to come, take care and hope you all are doing well out there.
