curious to see how many would actually be willing to buy this seems kind of cool but at the same time a gamble

It will all be dollar bin filler most likely.

To be fair, you'd be paying $1 or 50¢ per comic so getting dollar bin comics wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

According to some people, all the best variants end up in the $1 bin.

kind of misleading tho as the add lists more then 4 books had you read the whole add you would of seen it said "Each package includes an assortment of classic Marvel and DC comics, featuring superheroes such as Superman, Spiderman, Batman, X-Men, and other popular Superheroes. In addition you will also receive vintage collectors items and memorabilia from the original Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi films."

Grab bags are always a gamble, some people love the thrill though

I ordered a Groupon lot once. It had a ton of Dark Horse Presents, a few collected stories and a ton of mini series books. They were all bagged, but no boards.

It was worth the $20 to me. Some of it I would never buy if I saw it in the dollar bin.

I would never buy something like that because the comics I'm really interested in already have value and the sellers don't want to let them go cheaply.

Well I just bought some as I love being forced into new comics. Some of the best comics I ever read I would never go to a store and buy but if found randomly in a grab bag or given to me etc all of a sudden BOOM! Well worth the price of entry imho....and a little exciting to boot.

It was 50 books. I knew there would be no hidden treasure in it, but there were some interesting finds. I got the TPB of New Frontiers and Kingdom Come in the box.

The Dark Horse Presents were pretty good. I'd say I got $20 worth of enjoyment out of it.

Pass, I'd honestly rather spend $20 on an comic book instagram raffle. Though I'd prefer not to do that either.

I've found that My Comic Shop's variety pack is usually pretty good when I feel the need to buy a grab bag. You get three pounds of comics for anywhere from $11 to $20 plus shipping ($5 or $6). You get to choose from genres, characters or companies. They are reader copies, but usually pretty decent. I've done it three times now and I've never gotten a ripped or detached cover.

I like that they sell it by the pound, that's so great hahaha. I would be much more comfortable buying a value pack that I get to choose the character or brand, thanks for sharing @Jesse_O
