I take it those books were second hand and damaged?

I swear there is no resale value in comics anymore.

I remember years ago, when I worked in one of those shops, we could get away with selling practically new books for 20 or 30 dollars less than a month after publication.
They really weren't. They would be considered VF/NM or 9.0-9.4 if you were going to grade them.

I also got a complete run of Voodoo, Red Lanterns 1-11, Stormwatch 0-12 and nearly all of Grifter, Static Shock and Captain Atom. All $1 books also. I'll get to those in time.

Yeah, it seems the collector aspect of monthly comics really lies in either the book being a surprise hit and had a low print run OR the Variant cover market makes a book in demand.
The store I worked at in the mid 90's could get an upcharge of $.50-$1 on most books the month after. So I get what you're saying on that front.
