I managed to get in a couple of hours at Mid Ohio yesterday. Unfortunately, I've got things going on all weekend and that's all I'm going to be able to spare.

 

In my brief visit it seemed like there were more high quality SA and GA dealers than last year. And other than a couple of WAAAAAAY overpriced booths, prices seemed at least reasonable.

 

I snagged a handful of nice books...

 

It's a good day when I can add an early DC sci-fi book to my collection!

Giant ants weren't limited to Marvel.

But cat-pig hybrids with red toe nails is probably limited to DC... :D

The real question is why they needed a telescope to see that thing.

I picked up a super-glossy World's Finest 91 with an intense pink cover. Probably around a F/VF, but my scanner is broken. The Dudeman approved it.

Great comics, JohnT! I especially love the MGA #47 with the date stamp and owner's stamp. Even if it's not the Rockford pedigree copy, those stamps really add history to the book, in my opinion.

 

My trip to the Mid-Ohio-Con was mostly for meeting old friends and comic book creators this year, but I did manage to buy three books for myself.

 

Weird Mysteries #1

Weird Mysteries #3

Worlds of Fear #3 (Great art by George Evans in this one!)

Nice books! Three awesome covers. I was tempted to dip my toe into the pre-code horror genre Saturday. It's probably just a matter of time.

      February 23-24: Warren, MI at the Macomb Community College!
      This is a GREAT show that I have attended for years.  It is a top 3 show in the state of Michigan and while certainly not as big as Motor City, it has more of an "old school" feel with a higher percentage of Comic Vendors.  This will be my first time selling at it, and I know @catrick339 and @Nick's Comics will both also be setup there too.  I have done a lot of business with both guys over the years so please check out their booths as well, great books, great prices, and slightly above average Hawaiian shirts (catrick only).
      Jim Steranko, Arvell Jones, Keith Pollard and many more comic book and pop culture creators and celebrities will be in attendance. 
      @Rich_Henn will be onsite as well for signatures.
      There are deals to be had at this show, hope some boardies can attend.
