Comic Blind Bags
Posted 24 February 2018 - 03:16 AM
I had a bit of time to kill at the movie theater before the film of the week started, so I was poking around their arcade. They usually have grab bags of 4 older comics available as an arcade prize, and one of the workers let me look at what they had.
Near the back of the rack was a pack whose "cover" issue was a copy of "Batman" from 1989. Not expecting much, I turned it around to see what the "back cover" issue was.
...And stopped dead when I saw that the "back cover" was an "Action Comics" title with a cover price of $0.40.
Took most of what I had accrued at the arcade from past visits to get the grab bag, but I took it home.
*Action Comics #503, 1979
*Sectaurs #3, 1986
*Ultimate Guide To The Marvel Universe #9, 1986 (double issue!)
*Batman #432, 1989
I... may have to spend more time at that arcade and rack up more points just to see what some of those other grab bags might be hiding...

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.
