Second hand bargain: Superman comics

This strip was not amongst them…


Such is the cruel, mystifying nature of this current financial downturn that miracles are becoming almost as frequent as tales of misery and drunken fights. This is because as the rich man weakens, the poor man grows ever stronger. Soon they will be equals on the dating circuit, and you will see supermodels dining on benches with tramps, amazing Hollywood actresses snogging war veterans in shop doorways. It’s a confusing, but exciting time. Which is why we go bonkers for bargains. Over the weekend, friend of a friend, Jeff, stumbled across a potential goldmine in his most local second hand emporium. “I don’t know a great deal about comics,” he admitted, almost tearfully, “but I know a bargain when I see one, and this bundle of old Superman and Batman comics looked like it was worth a pretty penny.” We have since perused the collection, and it is, indeed, a mighty fine one. So, come on Jeff, how much for this desirable pile of animated stories? “It works out at about 5p for each comic.”

Excellent sticking-it-to-the-recession!
