Wacky Packs

Set Sale

So I went through my comic book collection and made up some back issue sets to sell. I made seven sets of ten comics each. The wackier the combinations the better. Then I drew a sketch of one of the comics in each set. The sketch and the comics are what you get for the price of admission. The sketch is a one-of-a-kind marker drawing on an acid free backing board and IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE.

For those of you who like shopping at my table at shows - well, I'm not gonna make MOCCA or TCAF this year. It's con circuit season and I am stuck in New Mexico. It's a ton of money to drive to NY and Toronto - for me and for everyone else. So, it got me thinking about how I might be able to sell my collection online. If I can't lean across the longboxes and do my routine for you in person then this is the next best thing. I decided to do more of an art project than just have a fire sale. Please enjoy. I had fun making these.

20 bucks each. 5 bucks shipping. That's $25 a set. I'm practically giving them away. It's like you only had to spend five bucks on gas to go to a con - and you got to spend twenty dollars at my table. I'm making super deals. I put a nice, weird set of stuff together for you. What? You have that issue of Underwater? Well, give it to a friend.

It's first come first serve. Email me at capneasyATgmailDOTcom if you
want to buy a set. Please refer to the set's number. Also list two alternate choices in case your first choice and second are sold.

The sets are mailed in a Priority Mail envelope with heavy cardboard and will be mailed immediately after purchase. I'm accepting PayPal and checks. Please email me first - don't just Paypal me and hope the set is available. ALL SETS SOLD!!
