On one of my comic book groups on FB many of the members are posting pics of finds at Ollie's of DC books that are priced way under the cover prices. I'm more of a Marvel fan (though Dc in the 80's was a good time and read), but I'm hoping to find collections of John's work! These are examples of what people are seeing in their stores.

Thanks for posting this. I'll have to go take a look at the store near me sometime. Supposed to be having bad weather the next few days, or I'd go tomorrow.

(Ollie's also sometimes carries comic book multipacks. Bagged sort of like the multipacks we used to see in stores as kids, but I believe it's 5 or more books rather than three. And sometimes they have older comics. I saw an issue of the 80's Superboy series in one once, but didn't have the money to buy the pack at the time.)

Dear God...I came here to get away from the unending 'Ollie's' plugfest that group has become.

Speaking of that, my sainted wife found me a 10-pack for
christmas this year. I was a little put off at first,
as the two visible were fairly modern vintage, but
inside there were some old-school goodies.

If we had one of those stores around here, I'd be broke, lol.

Finally found these at my Ollie's. Absolutely comical
(no pun intended) display. One giant cardboard box full
of books. I had to dig and lean in and I'm sure I only
saw 30% of what was there. I look forward to going back
in a few months to see what's on the bottom. Great
deals. I bought $400 worth of books retails price for
$60. Wowza!

Finally remembered to stop by.
Wow! The TPB's were laid out on large shelves, stacked in alphabetical order. Someone to pride in this display. Incredible prices 500 page DC Showcases at $3.99 ea.

I got a bunch of "The Greatest Stories Ever Told..." books, along with others.
And the coup de grace JB's World of Krypton for $2.99!

Thank you Sam!
