My previous COMC order took about half a year to arrive, and so I stayed away from the site for a while after that. But as other collectors had been sharing stories of quicker turnaround times in recent weeks, I figured I'd make a return. I spent a few days picking up cards, then requested shipment on 11/7, and the cards were shipped by the end of the month (11/29). I figured I'd get ahead of the Black Friday orders, and from what I heard, the sale was disappointing this year so I didn't miss out on much.
I've got 3 or 4 posts to write covering the package from COMC, but for today, just a few cards featuring strong women. Most of these I picked up for my problematically-named "girlie card" minicollection. Maybe I should rechristen this minicollection of mine "Women on Cardboard"? In fact, yeah, I think with this post I'll retire the "girlie card" label I've used on the blog since 2013 (a vague Married With Children reference) and start using the label "Women on Cardboard" from here on out. You know, gotta get with the times. Like the Cleveland Guardians and whatnot. lol
Leading off is the most expensive card of the COMC shipment..
The other card is a glowing insert from a set for an Image comic book called Avengelyne. I try to at least be a "type collector" when it comes to glow-in-the-dark cards, rather than super-collect them. I know I'll never be able to get every glowing card, but at least one card from each particular release of glowing cards is a more reasonable goal. And I didn't have any of those Avengelyne cards yet. This was the coolest looking of the 2 or 3 that COMC had available.
That'll wrap up this post. Have a great weekend, everybody.
