Highest Priority Comic Book Set Want List (Updated 07/14/22)

As I did a few years ago with my higher priority trading card set wants, I’ve put together a list of comic book series I’m either reasonably close to finishing, or that I’m down to a few key books I’d like from their particular runs. As with the card stuff, even though I don’t do much in the way of comic trades (mostly because comics just aren’t traded in my circles the way cards are), any help you can provide me in finishing these runs will be greatly appreciated. If you’re curious about my full list of comics wants, that’s available here, mixed in with my other non-card collectibles wants (it’s below video games and toys on the list).

07/14/2022 Update: working too hard on picking off the last few series (Catwoman Vol. 2 Jim Balent run, Firestorm Vol. 2, Green Lantern Vol. 2 90-200 and Infinity Inc. Vol. 1) that I’m relatively close to finishing. Finished a good handful of additional series.
