I just got the Hardcover Novelisation for Solo.

I also picked up the newly updated Haynes Manual for the YT1300 Modified Corelian Freighter. First impressions are good. There are new additions to take into account the Falco as we see her in Solo and several new pieces of artwork.

In the mail this morning I got a new paperback copy of Mistborn book 1. Reason why I had to buy another one is because my sister's pets chewed on and ruined a good chunk out of my first copy of the paperback

I'm hoping to dive into it soon. Right now I'm reading Maul: Lockdown. I have several others that I'm looking to get and start reading as well.

Paperback of X Wing Wedge's Gambit came in the mail this morning. Took long enough for it to come in the mail. I ordered it off of amazon from Hippo Books and I swear Hippo Books they're always so damn slow when delivering books and stuff

Still keeping up with the weekly comics after all these years.. still love them.

Lots to like lately..

The Doctor Aphra series continues to be great.. love the Droids in this series, they completely steal the show.
The new Vader comic.. pretty good, plus him riding a "horse", with the Empire logo shield.. awesome, plus a nice throwback to the Darth Vader Force Battlers figure w/same shield from years before!!
SW ongoing.. pretty good stuff here, good read, love the time frame they are dealing with in this series as well.

Stopped by local comic book store today for the 'May the 4th be with you' day. They always have a sale and can't beat the deals. I was looking through a box of his recent acquisitions and came across a complete and mint set of the 5 comic run of 'Darth Vader and the Lost Command'. He priced it at $20. Today's celebration deal was buy one get one free. So I bought this and a 4 comic set of Ultimate Daredevil and Elektra. So both sets for $20 flat. A great deal is you ask me.

I only grabbed one of the SW Adventures they had for free comic book day.. there were only a few left so I only grabbed the one.. in years past I would grab a couple to pass out to buddies that might have missed.

Also, general observation that each year the free comic book day seems to get more and more popular to the point the major free titles tend to go quick (Marvel/Avengers, Star Wars, etc.)

Also nice the Star Wars day and fee comic day coincides. Good overall for both/similar hobbies. My local stores were packed.


As far as recent aquisitions: All the "Star Wars Age of.." one shots, skipping on all the variants it's just gotten way out of hand the last few years, sticking to first run first print only.

Also on the non-sw front:

Iron man #36 1st appearance Ramrod
Defenders #143 1st appearance of Runner and Andromeda
Sludge #1 1st appearance of Rune
Amazing Fantasy #7 modern 1st appearance of Black Scorpion, Camilla Black
Silver Surfer #13 1st appearance of The Doomsday man
Strange tales #147 1st appearance Kaluu
Tales to Astonish #70 1st Human Top
Avengers #47 Dane Whitman/Black Knight
Young Avengers#16 1st Cassie Lang as Stature
Avengers #343 1st appearance Gatherers

That's all over the last month or so.

It certainly was. I but from them regularly but make out pretty well when I try to back fill my lost collection or find something else of interest.
