I also got some lesser sigs that were free. tomorrow doing Claremont, camp and going back for Jurgens to get death of superman tpb signed.

my nephew went, Bob Camp did a drawing for him free of charge with a coat. he paid for Bill Morrison's sig which he included a bart sketch (I had gotten him a Simpsons tpb)

29 back issues I got. only importance is an issue during Daredevil Born again, a Halloween fest reprint of Darth Vader #3 (1st appearance of Dr. Aphra), an old Superman comic like maybe 60s. bad condition though. but mostly 80s-90s Superman and Spiderman comics.

did do cbcs submission.

first thing tomorrow doing Claremount and than Jurgens

I got tons of signatures today.

Started the day with 61 signatures from John Romita Jr around 11AM and finished with five from John Beatty around 7PM.

Aside from spending mire than two hours on the crazy Adam Kubert line I was very productive for most of the day.

Once I rest a bit, get rehydrated, and have some food I will sit down and total things up.

I know I will be on line for a while for Claremount and Jurgens. but that's why I focused on collection stuff today. tomorrow is sigs

storm voice actress charges $40 per sig. so wont get her sig....probably. jurgens said if I go on line again tomorrow they might let me get the new sig free (2 line waits)...not reason why doing it twice. Bob camp may or might do $20 sketch for me. if perfect storm occurs...and have $40 left over (Claremont is $15 and Hamner is $5) maybe.

I had arranged to pick this up from Gregbo at the show, but it wasn't really a HeroesCon purchase.




Georges Jeanty did this for me on Saturday.





I bought a whole four back issues.




Excalibur page for my Captain Britain collection.




And the best thing, a Ghost Rider 2099 page. This was a big story moment, too. I was stoked to be able to find any GR2099 page, much less this one.

Picked up a lot of stuff for my grandson & son's-in-law. A lot from Heroes Initiative. I didn’t wait in line for any signatures this year. I like to walk through artists alley and support the younger talent. I watched some doing pictures on stage that were later sold at auction. There was a young lady named Angela Fernot who I watched on Saturday doing Godzilla. I really liked it but didn’t make it to the auction that night. On Sunday I commissioned a Godzilla piece from her. Talked with her for quite a while. Didn’t want her to rush it for me to take home. Said it could take 3 to 6 months. Told her that was fine. Just wanted her to take her time and do a good job.

While I didn't physically make it to Heroes this year, my buddy Dale Roberts was set up there as usual. This book was on World Wide Comics website and they had it at their booth for the show. Dale was kind enough to go to World Wide's booth and pick the book up for me.

I met him at the Interstate on his way home where I picked up and paid for the book.

Dale is class act. Visit his website at Dale Roberts Comics and throw some money his way.

based on this and the dinner. sounds like everyone had a blast.

I was surprised as found many things I wanted without even trying.

I collect elseworld comics and by going through a random box they happen to be in the first one I looked through. usually those are hard to find because if in alphabetical order they put based on the series (green lantern in green lantern) actually got someone interested in series. explain what it is, stories they told, etc

found a black ranger auto Morpher figure (I need just red to complete) by accident. was just looking at a table that had a small box of assorted figures. I just peeked out of curiosity

wanted the star wars comic from fcbd this day. saw a vendor had a "make a purchase, take one from box" went through it before looking ones to buy and it was there (it was all fcbd from this year)

even my goal of finding a Venom Lethal Protector for a good price wasn't hard. did take a little bit but found two vendors who had it and one had it for the price I wanted to pay
