New Amazing Spider-Man Portfolios And Notebooks

I picked up the new Amazing Spider-Man portfolios and notebooks when I picked up the new ones with the characters from DC Comics that I posted about on Friday. While I found four different portfolios, I could only find two different notebooks. I really like the first one since the background looks real and Spider-Man is almost life like (Venom on the other hand does not). The last one features Spidey swinging away from some of his greatest foes: Green Goblin, Vulture, Doc Octopus, Electro, Rhino and Sandman.

Yesterday's Thrift Store Find: Adventures of Tintin Volume 5

I found The Adventures of Tintin Volume 5 yesterday at a local thrift store for a dollar. The hardback collects the following three adventures: "Land of Black Gold", "Destination Moon" and "Explorers on the Moon". I was surprised that it was it in good condition considering that this was a used book.

I remember watching the Tintin cartoon on tv back in the early Nineties but I never read any of the comic strips so this is indeed a treat. If you want your own copy, then you can get one using the following:

Boris Karloff Tales of Mystery #25 and Wonder Woman #188

You may wonder what these two comics have in common. Other than the fact that both were originally sold for fifteen cents, they have nothing in common. However, I did find them at the first local community flea market this morning. There are not very many flea markets around here so I try to go to all that I can. Most of the vendors that usually sell "homemade" candles, jewelry, perfume and soap at the local craft stores were there. I found one table that had about a dozen comics spread out. Most were Disney comics that were around ten dollars. I did find Gold Key's Boris Karloff Tales of Mystery #25 (March 1969) and DC Comics' Wonder Woman #188 (May-June 1970) for two dollars each. They are in fair condition and I was surprised to find them for that price. I have three very worn copies of Boris Karloff Tales of Mystery #66, 73 and 76 while my oldest Wonder Woman issue is #250 from 1978. Here are the covers:

Thrift Store Find: Spider-Man Water Squirter

To be honest, I had no clue what this toy was other than Spider-Man sitting on a barrel. I had to search Google and eBay to find out that it was a water squirter. According to the auction, this toy was released in 2002 by Playfully Years. The Spider-Man water squirter that I found was missing the bottom part. The toy is 2.5 inches overall. The back has 2001 Marvel and Playfully Yours China while the bottom has three holes. Not a bad find for fifty cents.
