Sticking with firsts, first Elektra. This is from the same Daredevil run as I've been listing on my sale thread, so the grade makes sense. It's disappointing though because the eBay seller listed the whole set as being in better condition than they are.

First appearance of Rogue, and inspiration for my one weekly cover contest theme so far. I actually got both of these signatures myself (Milgrom did the cover and Golden did the interiors) at East Coast Con, but CBCS never had any witnesses available when I went by the booth.

First Juggernaut, which is a big key for me.

A copy of X-Men 129 I picked up; first Emma Frost and Kitty Pryde. I might put this one on my sale/trade thread if anyone is interested.

And the last non-con book I sent in; I got this because I don't think there will be any other way I get a Byrne signature.

On the first appearance train, James Cheung was there so I got a first Kate Bishop (along with most of the other Young Avengers) signed.

Rick Leonardi was on the guest list, and when I looked at what books he had worked on I saw he filled in on a couple of notable X-Men issues. He was the one guy I talked to who didn't charge for signatures, and also didn't seem to know what grading was.

I took a couple of blanks with the intention of getting my first con sketch, and ended up going with Barry Kitson. I'm happy with how this turned out.

On the flip side from Leonardi, Kitson only does sketch covers for grading if the cover is personalized (from my memory; I don't think it was any signature for grading). Cheung also had a different fee for grading and was familiar with the witness process. It's interesting to see the range of standards and knowledge across artists.

And last but not least, I finished my Steranko trilogy. I thought the 50 was in better shape, but c'est la vie.
