I Got Mail: Archie Comics

Guess what I got in the mail this morning???!!!!!!
Archie Comics!

I've been absolutely in love with Archie Comics since I was a wee little Canadian Phan! I still remember how I discovered it, I was moving a couch at my grandparent's when I was 9 and discovered a comic book... My aunts had said that they had quite a few in their room, my sister and I charged upstairs to check it out and it was like heaven :')

And since then, my older sister had been building our collection up..... then we moved to Australia where we departed with it :'(

I still love them, but I cringe at the price tag that stores put them up for.... In Canada they were approx I'm guessing $3~7 a book... Here they're 7+! And $7 is just for the thin ones....

I've followed Archie Comics on Twitter for a while and after seeing The Best of Archie Comics book go online.... I knew I had to have it! 400+ pages of goodness??! I couldn't ask for anything more :')

I was waiting for the day to reunite all my packages and tear them all open!
Look at my Panda chillin in the background, mirin my addition to my collection...

I ordered these babies exactly a month ago! 
I ordered The Best of Archie Comics and Archie's Camp Tales off Book Depository

My Book Depository purchase too less than a week to come! And it was from the US! I was so surprised at how speedy the shipping was..... and did I forget to mention that it was FREE?

I got my Fishpond purchase.... disappointingly, today. A month....? And Fishpond is from Australia. But Free shipping so meh, can't really complain.

My wee little Australian Archie Comics collection.... Really! My dictionary takes up half of that :(
Look how snug they are :) Cuties!

After flipping through the comics.... I realised that the Betty and Veronica one isn't a comic :( It's a book :(

Oh well! Still pretty to look at :)

Okay, well I just wanted to share that hehe.....

Thanks for viewing!
