Comic Sale Saturday

My LCS has quarterly sales, where everything inside (comics, toys, graphic novels) is 50% off, and everything outside is $0.50. I tend to spend lots of money at these sales, at least in part because I scope out exactly what I'm going to buy at half-price for weeks in advance. So, here's Saturday's 50% haul:
Kid Eternity TP
Spider-Man Visionaries: John Romita Sr.
Green Lantern/Green Arrow Vol. 1 TP
Flash: Time Flies
The full Justice Society of America 8-issue Maxi-Series from '91
Issues 1-7 of the Strazewski/Parobeck JSA series

And I picked up a bunch of stuff from the 50-cent boxes. Now, thanks to raiding those boxes for weeks, I have a full run of the Strazewski/Parobeck JSA, and I'm missing two issues of GL: Mosaic and four issues of Power Company.

I've not read most of what I bought. In fact, I've not read most of what I bought for months. I still have the second Catwoman trade, the first Hellboy trade, the Spectacular Spider-Man: Disassembled (ugh) trade, Swamp Thing: Spontaneous Regeneration, The Superman Chronicles, Sandman Mystery Theater: The Tarantula, Lucifer: Children and Monsters, Amazing Spider-Man Masterworks Vol. 4, Fantastic Four Masterworks Vol. 1, and a tremendous pile of floppies sitting unread on my shelf or desk.

So much to do, so little time. Oh well, at least this'll get the St. Patrick's Day post off the top of the page.

In the next couple of days I should be able to finish my post about my second negative experience with Adam Strange (and how it mostly corrected my first negative experience with him), and depending on whether or not I can transfer the pictures, I may actually be able to post the most awesome thing ever.

In the meantime, in honor of poor Power Company and Parobeck's JSA, what's your favorite cancelled-before-its-time series?

Totally random, because I'm sure I could name probably a dozen better choices, but I am going to say Quantum and Woody.

At least Priest was good enough to give us plot summaries of the missing issues!

I read "Trinity Angels" fairly religiously for awhile, but never managed to find anyone who carried Quantum and Woody. Heard nothing but good things about that book, too. I kind of wish someone would release the Acclaim comics in trade form.

Sadly, although they collected most of Quantum and Woody into TPB form, they're all out of print now.
