I went to the comic shop on Saturday but the May issue was on the stand.

I will have to check Waldenbooks or some other place.

I checked the other day but they only had the Wiz2 movie special on the stands. :rolleyes:

Also, just FYI, Wizard #163 is available with two different covers. One has Batman and the other has The Avengers. Both have the same info inside, and the promo card, but just wanted to let you know in case you're into Marvel/super hero stuff.

The #5 promo card?

Yes, the #5 promo card with Chewie.

Make sure you don't buy the Wizard2 mag with "Batman Begins" on the cover. This is not #163, it's the special movie preview edition, you won't get the card.

The #163 with batman on front is an animated Batman, as are the Avengers on the other cover available.

Thanks! There's an out of the way comic shop in my town that's always a little slow in changing titles out. I'll stop there on the way home tonight.

Got it! The shop still had a stack of that Wizards issue.

I noticed a difference between this shop and the one I frequent regularly. Shop #1 had the same issue but not bagged, while shop #2 had all of its issues in bags.

Managed to find this card today and as expected it is badly dinged on the surface like so many other copies I am reading about online.

Still, I'm glad to have it and now I literally need only 3 cards:

Vader Embossed 7
Case Topper Lenticular
C3 promo 4
