Hey, CHU, DrunkWooky here!
Well, IDW has moved on to the Empire Strikes Back adaptation run of Star Wars vol. 1 issues for their Mini Comic Collector’s Packs.
I purchased a single pack of the A New Hope Mini Comic reprints and lucked out enough to get #1! I wanted to strike similar gold here and get a miniature version of Boba Fett’s first appearance, issue #42! Well, I batted a 1,000! 1 for 1.
Just like before with the A New Hope Collectors Packs, you get (1) a high quality gloss-stock bound mini comic reprint of a Classic Star Wars vol. 1 adaptation issue (Check out that Chewbacca profile on the reverse! Not sure if you can tell from the pic, but the Chewbacca profile is “spot-glossed”);
(2) a sweet 3-D mini poster of that same cover; some specially printed 3-D glasses (in this case depicting the battle of Hoth); and (3) a trading card with a portion of a larger poster on the reverse.
All in all, I like these IDW Collector’s Packs. $5.00 for some great reprints. Sometimes it’s nice to bust out a reprint to re-read a key issue you’d rather not pull out of “carbonite!”
Not to mention, these 3-D covers have added some much needed psychedelia to my “Nerd Cave” walls!
Well, that’s it for now, dudes and dudettes. I hope this Memorial Day Weekend has been relaxing for all of you! I took the opportunity to visit a comic shop in my state I’d never been to. I’d highly recommend doing the same! Found a Wolverines #3 Parel variant at cover. But, anyway, I digress…
