  1. Civil War 1 Marvel VF/NM Variant Signed by Michael Turner No COA World War Hulk 1 Marvel NM Signed by Michael Turner and Jon Sibal No COA LTD 2500 HTF As per PM!
  2. If you like these - get the original Xenozoic Tales by Mark Schultz - some of the best stuff the medium has ever put out. My Topps favourite - Lone Ranger & Tonto by Joe Lansdale and Tim Truman. Not as far out as the Jonah Hex minis they were doing at DC (that started in the same time period iirc) but a lot of fun. Truman is always good. I've got about a dozen Topps books, give or take - never did by the X-Files but may grab them at some point. Good luck with your hunt man - always cool to collect an entire line of books and these will be more in the fun hunt category than the spend a pile category!
  3. The main story was just ok. The Lex Luthor back-up - easily an all-timer. "Metropolis - 900 Miles" - really made Luthor the master manipulator that the character now is. So many of Byrne's changes were incredible.
  4. Hey Kevin - do you know if Todd’s team is issuing tickets (like his last visit) or it just first come, first served line up? Many thanks sir!
  5. LOL - nice. Cutler had more talent than Joe Mad. Cannon arm. Mad couldn't draw bc his arm got so tired - Cutler could throw bombs more or less indefinitely...just never to his own team...
  6. are you at Niagara Falls this week-end Rich? I am not going this year - but if I was several beers would be taken care of. Have a good show man!
  7. @Kevin Boyd great list, as always! I’m trying to remember from past years...is there usually another round of comic creators announced in early June? (Hey if I didn’t ask “any chance Paul Smith is coming?” it wouldn’t be Fan Expo time!) Looking forward to another fantastic show!
  8. And cost is, I believe $50 per sig, so $250 for your 5 books plus the CGC fees.
  9. Laughed out loud at this one. This joke never ever gets old. Ever!
  10. Untold Legend of the Batman - because it was the first one I remember reading and my dad actually brought the first two issues home from a business trip. DKR - still re-read it almost annually.
  11. Great topic. DD #219 - Frank Miller basically does Clint Eastwood’s “High Plains Drifter”. Batman #424 - “The Diplomat’s Son”. Scum bag with diplomatic immunity...and things go bad. One of the few good Jason Todd stories. X-Men #205 - All BWS Wolverine vs. Lady Deathstrike. Doctor Strange #55 - Michael Golden greatness. (And the comic that inspired Art Adams to start drawing!) wish I could think of more DC stories off the top of my head - anytime Alan Brennert wrote a DC book (saw Holy Terror listed above), it was great.
  12. There are artists, artists-artists, superstar artists...and then there is BWS. Class of his own. GLWTS!
  13. One of my sisters moved to the US ~15 years ago. Couple of summer's back, we went to the beer store to get a case for the cottage. She says "I'll buy it". We put the case on the counter, guy says "$36". My sister gasps, then laughs, and says "My God, I thought you said $36!" Guy: "I did." Me: "welcome home..." Every time we go to the US, I buy a case of beer and regardless of what State I'm in, the person says the price and I, by reflex say "...the land of the Free!"
  14. http://www.nycomics.us/ has done private signings with Austin in the past - reach out to them - good group of guys. I met Austin at a show, years ago - not sure that he does many anymore though.
