I would also buy Point Blank 3 ( first Carver ) and WildC.A.T.S. 21 ( first Tao )
Yeah. I originally had Point Blank in there as I known Sleeper was a continuation. I left if off as I didn’t have the exact issue. Have to go through my boxes tonight.

i think its 3
I’m only really finding Season Two listed. The season ones are all TPB it appears. Guess I’m gonna have to go digging at the LCB then, I’ve been trying to pick up most of Brubaker’s previous works, I’m just finishing up Incognito and Incognito Bad Influences now.
What were you clicking in Amazon or eBay? I have some listings for both posted (not my listings but I linked to some that were in there.) I will post more links to cheap copies later.

eBay for now. I’m not too keen on purchasing from Amazon unless I can see the actual copy I’m gonna be buying. I’m super picky on grade, primarily I try to avoid any creases on the spine, that just annoys me. 🙂
Let’s just say, I don’t take others word for their own particular grading. What some say is NM+ is VF to NM- to me. I’m hard on my own grading… 😛
I just posted some other stuff on the article now. Check them out.
Let’s just day there were ones on eBay (single issues of the first series and sets) when I put the post up this morning.
