Man, the updates are coming fast and furious!
I've just finished setting up a new mailing list entry portal, and I wanted to share it with everyone here. I just send out one email a month to give updates on The Crimebusters - a little more often when it's actually time for a new issue - so if you're interested, it's a great way to get the direct scoop. Anyone who signs up now will get a welcome email that includes a link to a new digital ashcan which has short previews for both issues 1 and
First, thanks to everyone who supported the first issue of The Crimebusters and helped make it a reality. I'm super grateful!
I'm currently hard at work on the second issue, and one thing I'm trying to figure out it what to do for the Boy Comics #121 variant.
I've got two basic options - I could do an all-new original design, or I could do another homage cover.
I think a lot of people really liked the homage to Captain America Comics #3, so I am leaning towards doing another homa
I attended my first convention as an artist over the weekend, so I wrote up a little thing about the experience here, including a short video diary about the con and the comics I ended up bringing home myself:crimebustercomics.com/2019/09/16/catamount-comic-expo-convention-report/
I’ve recently acquired a new piece for my CGC Death and Return of Superman set, Superman #v2 #73 (11/92). This book completes a set of four, which serves as a bookend to a much larger set. Why? The four Superman titles cover dated November 1992 each contained a teaser page, the last page, warning us that "Doomsday is coming!"
While the stories for each of these books had nothing to do with the forthcoming "Doomsday!" storyline, beginning in Superman: The Man of Steel #18 (12/92), the
Won this in the Heritage auction last night. The last of the Warren magazines with Frank Frazetta cover work that I wanted. Probably one of the toughest to find in high grade too. And it also features interior artwork by Neal Adams. Enjoy.
Well I've been M.I.A. but we set up the office. The wife and I are posting a ton of the collectibles, got all of the comic books we have in, built the shelves to display, and tore the house apart. I will post some pictures so everyone can see the chaos. I decided to keep all the Batman Animated Series and have started posting the rest. Once I can get to the end of that... I will start working on the "Funny Books".
After going the whole summer abstaining from purchasing, I'm back to collecting comics again. Just won this in he current Comic Link auction. The first of the "mod" Diana Prince issues and very much sought after. Don't usually see this book on the market in grades above 9.0. Enjoy.
It's been too long since I updated here, but I've just been super busy. I have now sent out rewards to almost everyone, just a couple stragglers. There was a bit of a snafu at the printer with some variants that delayed things by a couple weeks, but in the end, everything worked out.
I'm hard at work on the second issue at the moment, just finishing up page 11. Things are going faster this time around, so I hope to have the issue done in November, but I will probably wait until January to
hello thought id tell you were i found my next lot of comics, i found it in the very last place in the loft i was clearing out the comics were inside a deteriorated old carrier bag underneath the loft door i was about to climb down from the loft when that was when i saw them.
Look at this last lot of treasure i found by chance. not quite the holy grail but very nearly.
On July 19th, 2019 the CGC announced the winners of the annual CGC awards. I was very excited to see who would win. I have a few sets that i constantly work on to keep on an award winning level, i was extra- pumped this year because i felt a few of my sets had a pretty good chance of getting some recognition. I started checking to see if the awards were posted around noon- i know that is a little early- but i was very excited.
At around 1pm i looked at my custom set that i was hoping m
I just returned home from Buckeye Comic Con. It's a small show in a hotel. Just like back in the 70's when I attended my first cons. I like it because it is dealers loaded with comics. There are some small press writers and artists in attendance.
They say the attendance is 400 for the one day event and that looked a little low to me. Very busy. It is held every four months and I plan on being there in November for the next one. I picked up some high grade Swamp Thing , pristine Spawn 1to
oh my gosh im like all bamboozled with all these different types of comics and wow your silly to pay enormous amounts of cash to take that really good comic home with you. get a grip its only comics! only joking with you 😜 no really enjoying going through stacks of comics ive recently discovered in my loft. Ive posted a few images of my favourites so far, i need to categorise them quick before it gets all mushed up in my head, advice welcomed on were to start apart from obvious marvel in one pi
The Kickstarter has ended and I'm just waiting for the copies of The Crimebusters #1 to arrive from the printers! If anyone missed the Kickstarter and wants a copy or copies, let me know and we'll figure something out when they arrive!
In the meantime, I'm keeping busy by working on #2!
The second issue is called "The Secret of the Ghost Bride." It features Chuck and Trixie investigating a haunted house. With a twist: there might be some time travel involved, thanks to the surprise ret
