Scope and content

This box contains 150 comics ranging from April 2005 to May 2013 with the majority being from 2008. The majority of the comics are single issue comics with a few one-shots. They are mostly published by Vertigo and DC with some Wildstorm Comics included. The Vertigo comics mostly consist of titles such as Scalped, Fables, 100 Bullets, Loveless, Hellblazer, Lucifer, Northlanders, Vinyl Underground, DMZ, American Vampire and the Exterminators. One complete series (1-8) of note is The New Deadwardians by Dan Abnett. The DC titles are mostly Superhero titles such as Batwoman, Trinity, and Green Lantern. The Wildstorm comics are mostly videogame adaptations. There is one outlier of a Garth Ennis comic published by Dynamite comics titled The Boys #31. Another comic of note is the Vertigo title Papa Midnite #1 from 2005 which has a yellow sticker from the Forbidden Planet in Glasgow with a price of £2.15. This title was potentially purchased from the comics store. One duplicate copy of Loveless and one duplicate copy of Lucifer were removed. A few titles had been in contact with water, but did not compromise the ability to read the comic.
