Marvel Score!

I braved the seedier side of Sacramento today in search of Chap Mei sets.

No joy.

However I did run across this little gem over at the Burlington coat factory outlet.


It's a book with an attached digital audio commentary by Stan "The Man" Lee.


This baby was on closeout at $9.99!


Can you say sweet deal?
