SPECULATION: Uncanny X-Men #282 (first Bishop)

Now that I've hoarded enough, I'm going to throw out a speculation pick for Uncanny X-Men #282, first appearance of Bishop.  I chose this book for 3 reasons:
  1. It's still cheap at less than $10 but prices have risen in the last month as people are beginning to snatch them up.  Still, a lot of shops and online sellers with stale catalogs are-a-plenty.
  2. Bishop is in the new X-Men movie called Days of Future Past.  This fits perfectly in the Marvel Universe and could see Bishop as a new stable character in the movieverse of Marvel.  Bishop is really, really important if you don't already know.  I have a feeling that, if there's another X-Men movie, we'll see Bishop, Cable, Stryfe, and probably Deadpool.
  3. I had to focus on one.  There are many others to look at but I think Bishop could be a great one because he seems to be overlooked by speculators even though he's THE linchpin that essentially saves the mutant universe a half a dozen times or so.

Midtown Pull List for October

"Somebody Stop Me!"

The first step in admitting you have a problem is blogging about it...anonymously.  Well, okay, I'm not blogging anonymously - but you're the only other person that reads the crap I write so I might as well use a fake name.  I'll go with Bogongo.  I know I'm posting this late.  Frankly, I was going to post something else then discovered that I had already started several posts that, although seem unworthy to publish, appear to have a sufficient amount of text already written that it would be wasteful not to finish and post.  Don't waste words!  There are some people in the world who can't even eat their own words - to delete them would be wasteful.  Okay, so below is was my pull list for October that has long since been filled and delivered.  I didn't realize Farlaine was so big (only so much you can tell from pictures); it's kinda hard to store.  I don't even want to post my pull list for November.  Suffice-it-to-say, I bought all the Ghost Cop I could find.  I literally ordered the last Ghost Cop issues they had at Midtown after buying the last 14 issues from TFAW.  So, all tolled I'll have 42 Ghost Cop issues.  At least the quantity answers the ultimate question.

Take care,
