  1. Spawn 216 completed auctions seem to have been (partially) inflated by misinformation that it is the Freak's first appearance. It is not.
  2. I read some his Uncanny & Battle Chasers back in the day, and the lady plays the Darksiders & Battle Chasers games... So we were discussing the two articles below regarding Joe Madureira not delivering on donor-funded rewards for the 2015 Battle Chasers Nightwar Kickstarter project, namely the promised issues of Battle Chasers #10-12. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1548028600/battle-chasers-nightwar/posts/2527154 https://www.bleedingcool.com/2019/06/16/joe-madureira-battle-chasers-10-12-image-anthology/ https://www.newsarama.com/45640-joe-madureira-says-battle-chasers-10-12-still-happening-but-with-a-catch.html There are lots of interesting discussion points [crowdfunding by established artists, his start at Marvel at 16, squandered potential (in comics), motivation in young artists]... and while Joe Mad always struggled to put out more than 3 months of consectuive issues, the most fascinating to me is that you could LITERALLY give Madureira 850K, 18 years, and he still would not finish a Battle Chasers comic.
  3. I was listening to one of his interviews recently and Sakai stated that with two exceptions he hasn't sold ANY of his OA pages either.
  4. I pre-ordered the Mike Choi store exclusive set (Knowhere Games) and a 1:10 incentive (Johnson cover). Desperately trying to hold the line there.
  5. A $55 set of covers from J Scott Campbell... http://comicsandponies.storenvy.com/products/27664155-usagi-yojimbo-1-j-scott-campbell-variant-set-presented-by-cnp
  6. 1st appearance of Milk & Cheese... Everybody booze up and riot!!
  7. ...........................................................................................................................^^ Not a Keith cover.
  8. 1st Joe Madureira (I think he was like 17 and an intern)
  9. I pulled these bone white Marvel Comics Presents #85-97 out of 50c bins on FCBD The Sam Keith flipbook covers always catch my eye as they came out when I first started to collect seriously (#88 is bad tho )...
  10. Not only RI covers through IDW 1:10, 1:25, and 1:50, but it looks like store exclusive variants have finally hit Usagi Yojimbo. I've seen one from Tess Rose? and one from Mike Choi shared on Facebook. Usagi Yojimbo virgin variant *shudders*. I'm out of my element.
  11. Cancel culture comes for counterculture comics... https://reason.com/2019/04/29/cancel-culture-comes-for-count/?fbclid=IwAR34ObWQcMwjg8CvlkV5oOf-xT4MRN7aYl-_CYYA0nK1SmWrT-9WuJ-dm30
  12. RE Simpson's... Yes. Bongo is done publishing Simpson's comics for the near future (indeed comics) as of late 2018. #245 was the last issue. Check it out here- https://www.comicsbeat.com/as-their-last-comic-goes-on-sale-today-its-time-to-say-farewell-bongo-comics/ RE Disney... There is a unique Disney book that should be widely available, as it is a Gold level sponsor. It is original content (new story), 1st appearance of Dizzy, and could introduce your grandchild to a whole new subgenre of comics. RE: post-apocalyptic horror... Check out comics' golden boy writer in a new original story. If you get lucky enough to find a copy... Pick up Fantagraphics' My Favorite Thing is Monsters, pop a cold bevvie, while reflecting on the gloriousness of the ball-point pen drawings (simplified for this book)
  13. I have up to 11 FCBD pulls across the 3 local stores I support. Some of it depends on cosplay. I'm looking forward to Spawn FCBD (even tho it's just a reprint #1 w/ a Mattina cover), interacting with fellow fans, & stocking up on supplies...
