Here’s my Haul for this week, featuring several comics that I found in the bargain boxes of my local store as well as four new releases.
COMIC BOOK HAUL FRIDAY – 26 APRIL 2013
So yeah, as you can probably tell from the image, I finally took advantage of the bargain bins at my local comic store, and picked up six extra back issues, including two Nightwing ones from 2003, among several others. But without further ado, here’s my Haul:

The official guide for readers of Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi! The Ostrander/Duursema team returns to Star Wars!
Now that that’s out of the way, I certainly will be delving into the bargain box more often now, and I’m going to try and hunt down the rest of the Nightwing arc featuring Deathstroke. My pick of the week is probably Talon #7 though, as that issue was really, really awesome. I might not be able to buy some back-issues next week though as I’m picking up New Avengers #5, Young Avengers #4 from this week, Hawkeye #10, Superior Spider-Man #9, Age of Ultron #7, All New X-Men #20 Green Arrow #20, Aquaman #19 and maybe even Astonishing X-Men Volume 2 as well. And it’s also Free Comic Book Day next Saturday, so I might go to the shop then depending on whether they’re participating in it or not and pick up lots of issues and the TPB then.
