This was a very good San Diego Comic-Con in my opinion.  I felt that there was a lot more new material this time around (note: just because pieces showed up at the L.A. show the prior weekend doesn't mean it wasn't still fresh to most SDCC attendees a few days later!), certainly a lot more than last year which was very much the same-old, same-old.  Various dealers pulled out some new material for the show, and then Mitch had a lot of all-new consignments and Nick K brought hundreds of his pages to the show from his collection.  There were a couple of major collectors showing things privately; one had two twice-up Kirby covers for sale, while another had a lot of good Bronze/Copper stuff, including the DD #160 cover (which CLink bought to put in their August auction from what I was told),

Sounds like my type of scene. hm

It seems by all accounts the winner was SDCC yet again, bringing their record to 48-0.

...with all 48 wins by way of knockout...

I still think of early '80s as Copper, but, technically it may be Bronze.  There was no late '80s or '90s drek.  And no ROM. lol

Poor, ROM. :tonofbricks: 

 

I can still hope for Moon Knight though! :idea:

Alex Ross had a fancy set-up larger than many Manhattan apartments.  How much does he sell to afford this kind of set-up???

(the photo below does not capture the full display, which was enormous - he is set up on BOTH sides of one of the aisle and neither side is fully displayed here)

Bill SIenkiewicz also had a fancy, gleaming white set-up (I think he and Ross are both repped by the same guy)

Saw the Ross booth a few times, but never made it to the Sienkewicze booth.  Those guys spent the money and had a slick presence for sure, and probably did well (though at least for the Ross booth and anecdotally, I didn't see LARGE numbers of people).  That said, the CONSTANT crush at the J Scott Campbell booth, and merchandise that was moving through it staggers the imagination.  He's a machine.

No ROM?  But what about this moderately priced duo?

If only this marvel comic was worth $2500... instead of $25,000...

Speaking of the DD 160: I don't know if this is the truth, or just a story I was told, but one of the main guys at the CL booth told me the cover was NOT going to be for sale.  Just fyi - 2 cents and all that.

I was told it is not for sale:  for his personal collection

You're right, there was no auction tag on that one. I just assumed that it was in the auction given that everything else in the display case was. :frown:

No ROM for sale by the guy who sold the DD 160 cover. :gossip:

Michigan. With plane tickets, lodging, food, etc., for 2-3 people (Id go with my family) it gets pretty damn pricey. Cost me almost 2 grand to go to C2E2 a couple of years ago, and I drove my car!

$10K for the DV #1

Dunno about the Lee/Williams, but the price was described to me as being very high

Thanks! My guesses were 10 and 30-35.

10 for DV 1 was a steal. Congrats to buyer.

That would be cheap for me, my wife and my son to go because my wife would go shopping while me and my son were at the con and she can spend WAY more than me !

Geez, you can say that again. 

Worth at least twice that.
