Let's see your most recent impulse buys. Be it in a LCS or eBay or any other store.

Today I finally pulled the trigger on a watched eBay item.
Rick Remender's Fear Agent #1 from Image. Loved the series and really enjoyed the writing. Moore did some fantastic work in the early issues as well.

I bought the first half of the run for a good price, and had wanted it for a while... the first issue wasn't as high grade as I'd hoped, and was signed. I poked around and all of a sudden bought this. Stupid eBay.

@kaptainmyke have you cataloged it all? I personally feel like that would be very rewarding and fun... I've told me buddy I'd help him with his but we haven't really had a chance to do it yet.

Last week I purchased five Batman/Detective Comics from a seller in Saudi Arabia. I have around 50 Arabic comics that I bought at a convention in the 1970's, and have found that there is a growing collecting market for foreign edition comics. When I saw that I had a coupon for my next eBay sale, I said "Why not?" The price was very reasonable and the seller also had free shipping. So now I have to wait until August 7th to see if they make it to RI. Not really sure what I'll get. If they never show up, I'm only out the cost of a couple trips to Dunkin Donuts.

Two weeks ago I was going to take a break on buying new comics on Wednesdays and focus on my inventory. That was until someone posted about the Batman book on this site.

That same day I hit five stores in an attempt to get ten of each copy (ended up with 19 Batman books in total). Also picked up DK III Master Race # 9 (multiple copies / covers). Baby Teeth #1 and Pestilence #2. A few copies of the 25c Saga book and a few other things.

The following day I attempted to find that last Batman copy and spent 25 bucks on a nice copy of Transformers #1 instead.

Day 1 spend $129.29
Day 2 spend $26.72

Some reason I can't load pics on here anymore since I got the Samsung galaxy 8. My iphone always loaded pics no problem but with the Samsung it says the file size is too big

@rckstr1253 That's okay! What'd you pick up?




Here is the ebay image for what I bought. Looks to be in pretty good shape.

Seems like every book I buy is impulse. I see, I like, I buy, I die. That's how my life goes and will go.

@earthshaker01 I have a habit of convincing myself NOT to buy something... like "I don't need that... its a new series... I don't know if I can keep buying it... I shouldn't buy that... Maybe I'll come back to it later." Then I'll go to half priced books or something and find a different series and find like 6 issues at $1 each and think... "Maybe I'll just get this series... its a full run. That's cool. I like the covers. I bet they put a lot of work into these covers. I wonder if they'll respond to me on twitter."

Yup.

Ain't that the truth! Every time I look for something on eBay I end up finding something I didn't plan on.

My budget doesn't allow for much. My latest impulse buy came when I was in line at Kroger. Got a sweet deal on a 2017 variant cover of Snickers. It was in the dollar bin but got it at half price! Its the hazelnut variant. I am very pleased with this find.

@kaptainmyke it's the "mostly" part that will have you pulling your hair out one day because you can't find something.

You mean you don't catalogue your collection with RFDI tags like Sheldon Cooper?

Awesome book! I found 2 copies of that at a local shop but passed on it and went back a few days later to find it was no longer there. I bought venom lethal protector 1 cbcs 9.8 and a cgc 9.8 signed amazi g spiderman 375. Has a beautifully places signature from my favorite artist, bagley.

I really enjoy Rick's writing. There have been some parts in this series where I was reading and put the book down to just kinda think about what I just read. Very great read.

I had that problem with my LG4 phone. After you take the photo, go to options and crop the picture. This will reduce the file size.

I have the galaxy note 5 same problem. I use this free app called photo and picture reducer. Got to experiment around with it but works great.

I got saved from an impluse buy on the 'Bay last night. I pulled the trigger on a lot of X-books (with 2min left) and at the last minute someone out bid and saved me. #controlyourimpulses LOL
