More UPC codes

Hey, I’m back!

I never actually went anywhere, I’ve simply had a job, some pretty tough college classes and my family to keep me busy.

But I went bargain-box digging in Tampa a couple of weeks ago and found a number of Ultraverse books with the UPC code on them. So I wanted to update that checklist a little bit. I’m pretty convinced at this point that practically every book for the first year-and-a-half had a UPC (I guess some people call them “newstand” copies) variant. After a certain point all of the books carried the UPC code.

Anyway, here is my update with the books I just bought (for 10 cents each!).

I’m only updating this list when I actually see a copy (or a picture of one on eBay). These UPC books are pretty easy to find, they’re just really scattered around a bunch of auctions and comic shops.
