The postman always rings twice

It's been a while since I made and posted a video. But seeing as my previous one just broke the 5000 unique views barrier (I can't believe 5000 people actually watched it) and it's almost Xmas I thought I'd give it another go. it's a bit silly and a lot geeky, but you comic fans know the great feeling when books you bought finally arrive.

As I'm geographically challenged it sometimes takes months before I get my hands on the books I bought as I tend to have a bunch of them shipped together to keep the postage in check. Yesterday two boxes arrived at once and...well watch the vid and let me know what you think. Couldn't find the trademark white surgical gloves this time, so I'm doing it all ,gulp... barehanded

If you want to watch the video in a higher resolution, which I thoroughly recommend, you can click on THIS LINK. Makes it easier to make out all the details.

Who did the piss poor packing job with the flat rate box? Those sweet books deserved better. I'm surprised it didn't get crushed.

You are right of course...but like all movies, a lot is done with CGI, blue screen and FX.
I had already unpacked all books (which were packed perfectly) and put the comics in the box (loose) for better visuals.

You win the geek-of-the-week award for obsessive detail-ness. Congrats :)

Spidey #28! One of my personal favourites. What condition is it in?

Nice Video.

Yeah, I love that book as well... one of my favorites as well. Probably my 3rd or 4th upgrade. Hard to find a copy that looks half decent. Even most VGs look bad because of the impossible tough black cover.
But I think I'll keep this one, only the rb corner lets it down.

here's a link to a bigger scan
