Thrift store near my house got a HUGE shipment of comics from some collector. (I assume)  Didn't have time to really get anything when I was there this morning since I had my 4 yr old with me & he was bouncing off the walls.

Stopped back in later after running errands & dropped $17 & got these:

Spoilered for hugeness.

They had TONS of others, but I got there 10 minutes before the store was closing.  Lots of Daredevil, Dr. Strange, X-Factor, New Avengers, Spider Woman, The Thing, Swamp Thing, etc. etc. etc.  Plus if I spent more my wife would kill me.

NICE freakin' haul, man, especially those Cloak & Dagger and Spidey comics. Lucky stiff.

Speaking of which, he just got added to the guest list for this year's Dragon*Con.

STERANKO!!!!!

Oh my god, I met him in Boston last year and he is honest to God dressed like a tiny magician.  For reals.

BRIGHT white hair, impeccable gray suit, big-ass gold-rim sunglasses on in doors, and polished shoes.

Ok, maybe more like a casino owner, but the guy is stylin

It's like he popped out of one of his covers.

Actually, it's a giant softcover.

BTW, I started a game where we cast a movie and we are almost done deciding the actors for the Tick movie (plus director and music), if anyone wants to play that (according to the rules I set up, you can only give one name per turn).

Made a mad dash over to Newbury Comics before I had to go do an inventory shift.  I was 3rd in line & missed out on copies of the Adam West & The Tick comics.

But this made my day:


They were first in line and it was Superman's 2nd birthday today. (Dad was using FCBD as an excuse to get them out of the house while mom made the cake.)

Also had the guy who was 2nd in line give me his copy of The Tick as I was heading out the door.

Highlights of my week:



Peter Bagge is the shiznit. As always, he handles the pitfalls of adult life with the same aplomb he covered teen angst back with in the '80s (suffice it to say, the Drag Me To Hell homage on the cover is completely apropos).




Damn you, Robert Kirkman. I had tears welling up by the time I got to the end of this issue. Why? Because Kirkman has shown, yet again, that he has a FAR better understanding of human nature than George Romero's Traveling Bitter-Old-Hippie Nihilism Show (aka, the last four Dead movies).

The Adam West was just a preview of the first issue that is going to come out in July. I have one if you want though.
