  1. Just a reminder about the upcoming and exciting Philadelphia Comic-Con being held this Sunday April 7th. Usual show hours are 10 AM to 4 PM and admission is a low, low price of $3 per person. Kids 10 and under free. Parking is free but sometimes difficult due to the crowds we get and other events held the night before as some of the guests at parties held on Saturdays are sleeping it off and getting a late start to their day tying up some spots for us. Feel free to park in the big rig parking out front if no lined spots are open in the lot. I can recommend showing up after 1 PM as we get hit with a huge wave in the morning. The crowd thins out by then and we are still open till 4 PM which leaves you plenty of time to shop the room. Held in the Presidential Ballroom of The Clarion Hotel and Conference Center 76 Industrial Highway (Route 291) Essington, PA 19029 But fear not True Believers as we have an amazing line up of vendors noted below. Dollar Joe (will have his remaining stock now at 50 cents each) Toys from the basement The Supply King Moving Picture Comics/Rob Griffin (we welcome back Rob who is loaded with key issues) Everyday Comics/John Rodemaker Madcap Collectibles/Mike DeCarl Stormwatch Comics Tim Q Rick's Comics (first timer at our show) Clandestine Comics/Fred Edeson Shazam Comics/Mike Kremer Plunder Palace David Mayer (he did great at the last show for his first time and looking forward to doing well again with his trades and variant covers) Anime Collectibles and Comics NYHC Comics/Lee Farrelly (another one who did great for their first time and looking to empty a couple more long boxes like they did a couple shows ago) Mark Walsh Chris Bass RC Comics/Raphe Cheli Ion Comics/Carl Klein AA Comics and Cards (award winning store in Lebanon) Jimmy Kimmel (no not the late night host but still a swell and funny guy) Blimp Comics Joe Regina Bob Cook Battlefield Comics/Jim Montgomery (who bought an amazing collection in Delaware recently and has folded most of it into his stock but still has more to process along with another collection he is picking up) All-American Comics/Gene Carpenter (his Amazing Fantasy 15 which is for sale was featured on American Pickers) Michael Garibay (first time vendor at our con with comics and toys) Silver Fox Comics/Bob Fox Effin Comics/Tom Dustin H Wall of Fun Rob K's Kool Komics Dave Reynolds of Dave’s American comics Next show dates after this weekend are June 2 and August 11 (where you can pick up your Overstreet price guide so let me know which version and cover you would like.

  3. Looking forward to the show and meeting up with a couple of forum pals... Pat Beam and Anthony Mazza
  4. A sad day indeed. My profound appreciation to a man who helped fill my childhood with wonder, imagination, happiness, awe, and a desire to become an artist... along with helping (with my parents) instill the beginnings of a positive social sensitivity and acceptance towards people of all color, religion, sex, and circumstance.
  5. Great show. Sorry to say I can't make this one due to a family thing... so there will be more keys for everyone to nab, lol. There was also another email from Derek that everyone should see (copied below)... Just a reminder (even though many if not all of you know already) about our Comic Con this Sunday October 14th. Show hours 10 AM to 4 PM. Clarion Hotel and conference center 76 Industrial Highway (Route 291) • Essington, PA 19029 Looks like it is an Eagles bye week so no excuses this show! Admission still holding steady at only $3 per person. Want to support the show then bring along a friend or three. Please no early birds. Many of our vendors come from far and wide and need every minute available to setup until the last minute when our doors open at 10. If you are not an early riser then feel free to show up in the afternoon as still plenty of good deals to be had. Dig through all those boxes in the room. I did some great buying at my last show and didn't understand why those goodies were still to be found (set of Venom Lethal Protector, Amazing Spider-Man 361 high grade copies which I had slabbed onsite at the Baltimore Comicon and you can find them on my wall this weekend). Special guest artists and creative talent include Darren Auck, Steve Myers, Jacob Jones-Goldstein, J. Patrick Conlon and Hector Nazario rounding out the guest list. Dealers from far and wide with another sold out show jam packed with goodness (and FUN!) On Facebook? Then check out PhiladelphiaComicCon or ComicBookShows.

I know several others who have boxes packed with new material for your viewing pleasure (and purchasing pleasure too). Collectors Comics Dollar Joes Toys from the basement The Supply King Mike Carbonaro/Big Apple Conventions Everyday Comics/John Rodemaker Madcap Comics/Mike DeCarl Stormwatch Comics Tim Q Joe Regina Mike Kremer Clandestine Comics/Fred Edeson Plunder Palace Joe Walsh Dustin Hovatter (one of the behind the scenes guru for the Baltimore Comic Con.

Another first timer but experienced retailer) Rob Kremis Basement Pressing Services, Inc. Basement Comics/ AL Stoltz (noted Overstreet price guide advisor and all around swell guy!)

  7. That works... the story needs a reason for them to meet/fight without getting into Alpha Flight too much
  8. Of course that would be ideal, I'm willing to settle for an extended flash back at this point.
  9. With the pending Disney/Marvel - Fox merger (and with Sony/Marvel sharing Spidey), this thread is starting to come full circle... and most said and/or believed it could NEVER happen. In the next couple years or sooner we could certainly get Wolverine and Hulk in the same film at some point... a new wolverine it sounds like (Hugh says he's done), but it could happen. There are rumors that Marvel is considering tweaking the next (4th) Avengers movie (2nd Infinity War installment) to introduce some characters into the MCU. I'm thinking a Hulk 181-esque flashback scene... Wolvie vs. Hulk as both come face to face again... remembering their battle from years back. That would be epic...
  10. You're quite welcome SECollector. The Air Freshener I used was a Glade plug in cartridge? The kind you slide into a unit that's plugged into an outlet.
