Fan Expo Dallas, Day 3

Posted by Jeremy Clifford on

This day was awesome. After meeting Frank Miller and the Dark Knight III team yesterday during the Platinum Frank Miller Experience... we started this day out with the Private Signing. We took all of our submissions over to Frank's hotel and were invited up to his hotel room.  We were able to chat with the DKIII Team while Frank signed away on books:     After the private signing and bidding them all farewell we headed back to the Fan Expo Dallas convention. Met and got autographs from the Star Wars celebs that were there. I also picked up my Dr...

Space City Comic Con - An symptom of a bubble about to burst?

Posted by Jeremy Clifford on

This weekend Space City Comic Con was a less then stellar experience for many fans. If you haven't heard the news yet you may want to check out this article. Not surprising really given the challenges they had in the past year. I imagine their court battle with the city of Houston was not a cheap endeavor. However, is this just a one time fluke... or are we seeing the beginnings of the bursting of the "Comic-Con Bubble"? What other conventions recently had some challenges? Anyone remember Galacticon 4 in Seattle last year? Or now rumors of a Wizard World...

Emerald City Comic Con 2016

Posted by Jeremy Clifford on

So we just returned from the 4th largest comic book and pop culture convention in the US; Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, WA. This was the first "official" changing of the guard over to ReedPop since they purchased ECCC last year.  Here are some of the changes that we noticed (and there is probably more, so don't assume this to be a complete list): 1. This year the convention expanded from a 3-day event to a 4-day event2. The volunteers (or "minions") were paid... so I guess that makes them not exactly volunteers.3. The VIP packages changed. It used...

Really impressed with these Neal Adams variant covers that came out last week. I've always been a huge fan of Neal Adams. When I think of Batman or Green Lantern its his artwork that pops into my head. Neal will be appearing at Dallas Fan Days this weekend so we will be getting some of his variants signed and graded. Those will be posted either here and/or in our eBay store when we get those back. In two weeks we have Wizard World Portland as our next event to attend. That looks to be a great lineup. Fans of Alias,...

Week Dec 13 2015

Posted by Jeremy Clifford on

Star Wars The Force Awakens opens this Friday. Hard to believe that the day is nearly here. As such it seemed appropriate that I get caught up on my Star Wars reading. Star Wars 13, Darth Vader 13, and Star Wars Annual 1. Wow. I'm not usually very fond of Annuals... but the Star Wars Annual 1 was... brilliant! It was original, fun, exciting, new, fresh... I could go on and on. There have been so many "lightsabers" as of late (the prequels, Star Wars, and Darth Vader titles) it was nice to step away from it. Here is a...
