Just one addition – or rather, re-addition – to the collection arrived in the mail this week.
I got this issue when it originally hit the stands 30+ years ago, but somewhere along the line in the decades that followed I lost my copy, along with the bulk of my copies of the series.
I’m not entirely certain I want to completely rebuild my collection; I have the entirety of the John Byrne issues collected as part of an omnibus, and honestly, I didn’t really enjoy the non-Byrne issues.
I’m not ruling anything out, and it’s possible that at some point I’ll get a wild (green) hair and decide to fill the gaps to have a complete run of the series, but in the meantime, I just wanted to get a replacement copy of this issue as it’s a favorite and – mostly because it features Shulkie in a bikini on the cover – it seems to be rising in value, and is currently one of the most valuable issues of the series.
I found it for a decent price in the Bay of E, purchased it, it arrived, and now I’m showing it to you.
