  1. Goblin if the encounter is a surprise, Joker if he can plan ahead. 

    How about a couple comic characters - lumping person and pet into one here - that have already died (and remain dead\undead).

    V (from V for Vendetta) vs Ezekiel w/ Shiva (Walking Dead)

    Awesome, will definitely stop by, especially to check out your Neal Adams X-Men books, need one to get signed. Thanks!

    Anyone else going, that will have a booth? Anyone have any panels planned? I'm planning on Jaime Lannister Friday and Goldblum Saturday, and I got meet and greet ticks to Adam Savage. Also, I'll be playing in the poker tournament Friday. Anyone else planning to play?

    from sckao

    @Cliff R. scored 16 in the First Round (after the Seeding Round). That was the lowest I think. 

    Actually I think its @TwoPiece He had the lowest seeding round score and was a first round casualty. Nice work to @flashlites on pulling the first round upset and saving me a bit of cash. Thanks! Message heading your way @TwoPiece

    ALSO -- Who/How do we determine this prize?

    Special Prize Donated by Bkd Reader @Bkd Reader
              $25 Amazon gift card emailed over for the last place finisher (lowest entering score + first round exit). If it's a tie, I'll think of something but both will get a prize

    So who got the lowest entering score that was bumped in the first round and participated (sent grades) for each round? Sorry, have been out of town and missed the end of the contest.

    I wouldn’t doubt it actually. He’s a powerhouse performer. His son is talented too. I’m from Des Moines IA so I’ve met Corey and his son and a couple other band mates. Love how big of a comic nerd Corey is. 

    (worship) So very jealous, meeting him is a bucket list thing for me.

    Sorry for temporarily derailing the thread :foryou:

    Greg Capullo and Corey MF Taylor? I’d be all over that book! Wish he would do more comics. Maybe in 5-10 years when he’s done with music. 

    I spoke/babbled to Mr Capullo at a con last year and asked if he would ever do anything with Corey Taylor, he seemed keen on the idea. Just gotta get them in the same room.... And I don't think Taylor will retire from music, he will still be bouncing around on stage at 80.

  7. Not sure if this counts. I would absolutely set up a meet and greet with Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman and have them sign my favorite work by each (V for Vendetta 1 - Cgc SS 9.8 or higher would be my 1 comic to own - and Good Omens). The books aren't super expensive - I own both, unsigned - but bribing them to do a private meet and greet and signing would not be cheap. Really, I just want to babble with them.

    My second choice would be a meet and greet with Greg Capullo and Corey Taylor so I can convince them to do a comic together (with a new accompanying Stone Sour album). Then that would be my one comic to own.

    Sorry, now back to your regularly scheduled Supermans and Batmans.

  8. I'm excited for Neal Adams and Gerry Conway. I bought XMen 56 to get signed by Adams and will probably buy XMen 65 to get signed by both (I imagine the signatures get expensive fast with those guys and the CGC tax they add, so I'm trying to limit myself).

    Also excited for Summer Glau, because Firefly is amazing. Might have her sign the new Firefly 1 comic. My gf is excited for Donna (her favorite Dr Who companion, and my least favorite) and Captain Jack (I liked Torchwood), so I think I'll get her a pic with both.

    I'm hoping for more announcements soon. Come on Phoenix whatever-you-call-yourself-this-year, don't disappoint.

  9. Welcome to the boards. That's a very nice start to a collection, with grails some people can only dream of owning. Most folks on here are very knowledgeable, don't hesitate to ask questions. Searching previous posts is great too, lots of good stuff has already be discussed. Good luck to you in your collecting goals and hopefully you meet some cool people on here :)

    When the CCS invoice is emailed to you...  does that mean they've finished pressing and heading to grading?

    From what I can tell, it means the book has been received but is not yet pressed. You'll still have a bit before it heads back to CGC.
