Oh yes, this required more than one page to properly express. I got a legit sore back from all the hunching over I did to root through all those boxes of old comics. And the funny thing is, I'm the guy who proudly professes to have bought, like, one thing in the Dealer's Room per YEAR, and I'll make deliberate plans to look for it before I even enter. Most of all, I never EVER do the whole "haggling for discounts right before closing" thing, since that would require actually TALKING to people. Basically, blindly rummaging through whole tables in search of deals is NOT me. I'm not sure what happened. Maybe the musty smell of all that old paper gave be flashbacks to those teenage days when I was on a serious vinyl collecting kick and could spend an entire day picking through every inch of an antique store's record collection. Or maybe I'm so used to fifty dollar box sets that the thought of getting ANYTHING for fifty cents is just too good to resist, even if it's purely for the meme value.

...but seriously, I skipped out on going home and eating a ral actual meal because I just HAD to flip through one more box of old Valiant and Image comics JUUUUUUUUUST in case there was some stray issues of Brute Force I hadn't stumbled upon yet. (I never did find any)

Valiant and Image comics are “old”? *sob* Guess I’ll just shuffle off to the old folk’s home with my Silver Age DC and Marvels from the 60’s and 70’s...

I know, right? I totally remember that was the literal definition of what a "new" comic was... and now it's all collecting dust in the discount bins, being glanced at by kids who weren't even BORN when they were printed. Time is a cruel mistress.
