THE COLLECTOR'S CORNER
A Special WALKING DEAD Edition
Comic Book John, here, BACK with a VERY SPECIAL Collector's Corner!
I know, I know, it's been nearly two months without one of these, but I promise we will be getting back into gear! Setting up for Batman Day took up a lot of our time, so we apologize for not keeping you guys up to date on what's new at Soundwave. So, as a special treat for everyone, we've got a VERY SPECIAL Walking Dead edition of Collector's Corner this week! We've come into some valuable pieces that we want to share with you all, and hopefully help find a new home for them! That, and with the show back, we're sure everyone's excitement for the franchise is at top gear!
It has been a while, though, and some of our newer followers, as of late, might not be "hip" to what we do here, on Collector's Corner.
So, for those of you just joining us, or if you just need a refresher....
Every week, we'll have one or two new articles showing items that we've bought, traded for, and/or received on consignment. We're always buying and trading with people and there's always one thing, or another, that sticks out. From older, or landmark comics, to amazingly-crafted statues, we've got things for any and all collectors, no matter the preference! And we want to make sure you're all aware that they're available to you!
So, without any further delay, let's get on with this VERY SPECIAL Walking Dead edition of THE COLLECTOR'S CORNER!
Within the last week, we came into a few very interesting, very valuable pieces of The Walking Dead comic book series... We've got them on consignment and we're really excited to reveal them to you guys, today!
The pieces we got in are very early, key issues. And by early? I mean we've got The Walking Dead #'s 1-8, along with The Walking Dead #23!
As many of you may already know, the comic book series started off with no high intentions from its creators. There were very low print runs for the early Walking Dead comic issues, so that when the series got popular, and the show took off, these issues became highly-sought after and highly collectible items! They're harder to come by, not even I've seen physical, original copies of, at least, #1 before. These are pieces that ANY fan of The Walking Dead will want to have in their collection! Heck, any comic book collector! You're not gonna want to miss out on getting these, 'cause this could very well be the last time you get a chance like this!
And, if you're looking to start a collection of The Walking Dead, then look no further than us! We've got a good selection of Walking Dead comics for those of you either looking to complete your collection, or for those of you interested in starting one for the first time. Here, we will showcase any and all of the issues of The Walking Dead we have up to #125.
THE WALKING DEAD #1
Monthly ongoing Series In stores the week of October 1st. THE CONCEPT: How many hours are in a day when you don't spend half of them watching television? When is that last time any of us REALLY worked to get something that we wanted? How long has it been since any of us really NEEDED something that we WANTED? The world we knew is gone. The world of commerce and frivolous necessity has been replaced by a world of survival and responsibility. An epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. In a matter of months society has crumbled, no government, no grocery stores, no mail delivery, no cable TV. In a world ruled by the dead, we are forced to finally start to live. THIS ISSUE: Rick Grimes is not prepared for this. A couple months ago he was a small town cop who had never shot anyone and only ever saw one dead body. Separated from his family he must now sort through the death and confusion to try and find his wife and son. All the while fighting for his survival. How did this happen? How did things get so bad so fast? How will things ever return to normal after everything he's seen? From the guys behind BATTLE POPE and BRIT comes something COMPLETELY different.
We have one copy that is a higher grade, which hasn't been CGC'd yet. We'd put it at a 9.8, it's in great condition, with beautiful white pages, and no issues with the cover. We have another copy that is a lower grade, it looks great, but it has a blemish on the back cover. This second copy is imperfect, but would be perfect to place in your collection at about half the price.
We can work with you on layaway options, if needed. Please call ahead if interested in viewing issues #1-8, so we can be sure to have them here at the store.
HIGH GRADE #1 - $1,699.00
LOWER GRADE #1 - $799.00

One of the most important... don't go into the city, any city... EVER. Rick doesn't know this rule... but he'll learn.
THE WALKING DEAD #3
