Free comics

Milky bars Comic books are on me!

I'm having another clear-out, so all these comics are free to a good home. If you'd like any of these, just squeak. Some of them are very good, and I'm only getting rid of them because I've bought a replacement copy in better condition. Others aren't quite so good, but I assume that someone liked them...

  • Nation X: X-Factor (one-off)

  • The Uncanny X-Men #195 (crossover with Power Pack)

I particularly recommend The Death of Jean DeWolff, although it has 2 pages in the wrong order. My copy is a bit battered because I've read it so many times, and I've now bought the hardback version (which also includes the sequel). Power Pack is also very good, with young children who actually behave like children (rather than small adults). At the other end of the scale, Paul O'Brien said that after he read DC Universe #0 he was tempted to send them an invoice for his time. Daredevil is somewhere in the middle, depending on how much you care about Leapfrog as a character, i.e. if you don't mind the writer crapping over continuity from a great height then you'll probably like the story. (Later stories did some retconning to sort out the inconsistencies.)


A few packets of Spider-Man trading cards (a bit like Top Trumps or Magic: The Gathering but you just look at them rather than playing a game with them).

A poster from the Oatmeal book: "Why I Believe Printers Were Sent From Hell To Make Us Miserable". (I'm keeping the book, I'm just getting rid of the poster.)

Finally, there are a few items left over from my last decluttering post.

Edit: All comics now taken.
