There’s no denying that $500 (or $350 through Amazon) is a substantial amount of money, but it gets you 28 pounds of 1980s comic book goodness.  Plus, it would take someone a major amount of time to get through all these books. It would probably take me a full year. That includes using Google or Ask Jeeves to look stuff up.
