The Death and Return of Superman Collector's Editions

The Death and Return of Superman saga is so 90s, and also credited with the beginning of the publishing gluttony that paved the way for the market crash later in the decade. One such 90s thing about this set is the number of "Collector's Editions" released. I have most of these and enjoy them, but it has been frustrating finding them graded. These editions crowed just about every comic shop in America but I never see any raw 9.8 candidates. Most of the graded examples are also listed with high B

The Crimebusters - con report!

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/

Doomsday is Coming!

I’ve recently acquired a new piece for my CGC Death and Return of Superman set, Superman #v2 #73 (11/92). Why is this book apart of this set? Because the four Superman titles cover dated November 1992 each had a teaser page at the end, warning us that Doomsday is coming! The four teaser issues have always been hard for me to find. I started when I was a kid, I only found two of the four, Superman: The Man of Steel #17 and Action Comics #683, both second printings. I did manage

Frazetta Greatness

One Of Many Covers Picked this up at one of my LCS. Always been a fan of Frank Frazetta and this cover has to rank as one of the best. Would have preferred a higher grade, still, this one presents the appearance of a 9.0. I will be posting more journals with some other Warren mags with his cover art when I acquire them. Enjoy.

Frazetta Greatness V

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.

The Death and Return of Superman Multiple Printing Saga

I found The Death of Superman TPB at Kroger in early 1994, I was 11 going on 12, this was the beginning of my journey into this wonderful hobby. I had heard of this “event” but I was so late to the party that it was over, the Death and Return of Superman saga was a trilogy of three storylines, "Doomsday!", "Funeral for a Friend" and "Reign of the Supermen!", all ancient history by '94. After I got The Death of Superman TPB I searched out issues for  "Funeral for a Friend" and "Reign of the Super

The Buzzetta Journal...

Since everyone else apparently gets a journal, maybe I should claim some space too...  I'm just another schmo that has a lot to say about things that most nobody cares about.

M.I.A. For A Bit.

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".

The story of my slow downward Spiral into comic collecting addiction.

It seems everyone else has one so I guess I should too! I started this for fun, but will try to post interesting things, but will also include recent buys, along with gifs, and memes for my amusement. People are welcome to post, and discuss different things they don't all need to be comic related. To see old comments for this Journal entry, click here. New comments can be added below.

Wonder Woman 178

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.

Tales from the Comic Box: Rookie Adventures in Buying/Selling & Setting Up at Shows

Adventures and musings about Buying, Selling and setting up at Conventions and Shows I participated in my first ever show last October. You can read about it here: http://boards.collectors-society.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=8903742#Post8903742 I was pleased with my sales, it was an excellent learning experience and most importantly, I had a great time. I must have did "ok" as I was invited back by the show organizers. In my town, there use to be a larger two day

The Crimebusters - Con Update!

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
