  1. Today is the day the tickets are up to be brought. It is now 148 days left to go. I got my 4 days pass confirmed online. Within 15 mins, I think ... all sold out? Who else got it? Gonna be a good weekend for me to go there.

    In FEV, it is 8x8 booth size, not 10x10 size.

    Only big comic vendors like Harley can afford FEV high nosebleed prices on tables. My friend asked one comic vendor at FEV that question. I was surprised when the vendor said he forked out $3,000 for 3 booth sizes. That is for 2.5 days length. 😱 I can not image how much the tower of T-shirts pay for their spot there !!

    I might look in that. If the stars align to my favor and cheap airfare to score. I am up for two days in the show. For now I am keeping my eyes to score a ECCC ticket first, then I will see about Calgary airfare prices.

    I believe you, you are good on your word. It’s official then. My friend will hate me because I wanted to go to ECCC in March. He complained of the hotel expenses to me . I tried to explain him the smart thing is to take care of hotel expenses in ahead first then worry about the comic budget later to save up. Not do everything at the same time!

    Are you certain with that dates? My friends told me where they got word from one of FEV panel staff that it would be in April 2019. I was surprised that FEV decided to go back to their original Spring dates. Seems it is due to the difficulty of booking media guests in the fall season, they want do a better job and the feedback from media guests shows they favor the spring season over the fall season. If that is the case, I guess it it will be 6 months for the next FEV. Be interesting to see how it stack up with ECCC and Calgary Comic Expo

    Correct... actually I learned from a source who told me that there was one page OA to this book sold in an auction some time ago. He said it went for thousands of dollars. I didn’t get the exact number. Yep, none of us can afford any OA Pages to HOS #92. Saturday morning, the line to enter went briskly as I walked by booths until I found the comic vendors. Had a look at their wall racks. They are as what aardvark88 said on Friday. Slight better improvement from last year. jiggypig’s wall rack is nice and my eye fell on one BA Neal Adams book that I might think to take. Canadian Comics booth as usual displayed some good books. Harvey in his sweet spot, has his wall rack with some GA Batmans, Timelys and such. I will post photos of some closeups today when I go there today. I had dropped a few books to try out the pressing facility (2 small keys and one BA book). I want to see how he do with his pressing skills. It will be some time before I get them back. By afternoon, the crowd gets more tight a bit. I went to Ron Perlman (Hellboy actor of first two movies) panel to watch. He was great in his natural character on stage. He cussed in his speech and I enjoyed that. His opinion on Hellboy 3 movie in the works, he is not involved with the project ... a new actor will take the Hellboy role. But he said this new movie should be good one, it is about the son of Hellboy in story. That, where I will not say more. Got my graphic novel New Mutants signed by Bob McLeod, he told me that he thinks the movie on NM, as a horror theme, should be good if done right. He is not involved with the filming as it is. I got these books. One vendor got the Jughead book from Baltimore for me, and some DC BA books to fill in my collection. I’m holding out on my wallet for a big book later.

    New Collection We Looked At

    Hmm.... I’m not sure about that, as my 2019 plans are to go to ECCC and Baltimore, and also possibly Kelowna Expo. If I can get cheap airfare to Calgary, I might do for couple days.

    New Collection We Looked At

    thehumantouch, what are your plans with the Teen In and GoGo Animal books? I see a few books that I would love to fill in my Tower Comics collection.

    Sorry Kevin, I only know was what they told me last year. I went with that Whoa...quite the splash page! Wonder if he do commissions at his booth? I should go see about that. Thanks.

    I hope so for next year! Last year I dropped my 4 books at CGC booth on Saturday. Then on Sunday afternoon, they folded up early *poof* . I get to see them before they left. One guy told me he and his partner had to catch their flight back to the States, so they had to fold up early.

    Venom Movie

    Back from the movie, we all stayed to the very end of credits. Saw the scene, it is cool and hilarious ... let’s say it is a preview to something else. I leave that to you to find out yourself. Venom is pretty good and the dialogue between Tom Hardy acting as Eddie Brook and the parasite Venom is good - impressive bit as what I thought as I see. I give it a three of 5 stars. Friends and I were talking about the sequel and what to expect to see who’s going show up. Right now I gotta check my boxes to pull out books.

    Venom Movie

    Heading to meet friends to go see Venom this afternoon. I will see what it is like and give my score later tonight.
  14. Thanks for the weather note. And unles you are referring to yourself about driving back and forth, that’s alright. I am flying there and would be using public transportation like the Lightrink train system they have between BWI airport to Washington. My biggest concern would be on the securing a spot with a nearby hotel for a reasonable price. We all have the whole year ahead to work out all the kinks out.
  15. Hypothetically... let’s say supposedly if the Ravens is out of final playoffs by the time next season, will that mean the hotel rates will go back to normal to book in? Not ruffle the Raven feathers, it’s just a hypocritical question, ok?
