@Themaxx35 I had a chance to meet Zeck at Fan Expo Canada this year, so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to have mine signed. Picked mine up along with those Punishers 15yrs ago in a 0.25$ bin.

If we are talking cool signed items? For me it would have to be my Greek Crow 1 signed by James this year. This is the only copy James O'barr had ever seen personally besides a scan on the internet. When I asked him to sign it in Greek he thought the idea was fascinating. I asked James what was his favorite Crow quote from the series. A greek friend of mine was on hand thru facebook chat to translate the phrase into Greek. James then took my buddies lettering and duplicated it on the cover. Needless to say for me as a foreign edition guy, this is an amazingly killer and one of a kind item. The notes say..... "Witnessed Sig: JAMES O'BARR (& "Fear is for the enemy... fear and bullets." in Greek) on 1/13/2017."

The is just one copy of the 1,130,468 that were sold in the first two days. It is the 25th game to be rewarded a perfect score by Famitsu, and 2nd in the franchise. And my 'First Press' copy is the first to be graded, received VGA's third-highest grade (below 100, 95+), and received the Archival treatment.

No clue what will be graded next, but I hope it fares well enough to be displayed by this.

@VictorCreed The funny thing is I got most of the exlusives for issue one and all of the exclusives for issue three but somehow missed the boat on issue to altogether.

Is the book coming out more than once per month or have I just been too busy to keep up with the normal monthly schedule.

@drchaos Not sure how often the issues are released. I usually go a few weeks between picking up my books.

Alan Young signing my three file copies at his home, about a year before his passing at 94 years old. Great guy.

What about a 1:1 Scale Swamp Thing Head made by Special Effects Artist Jerry Constantine (Watchmen)?

My local movie house in Portland is called the "Hollywood Theater". It has a rich history of films and stars appearing under its roof. One such event about a year ago was a screening of The Exorcist with special guest Linda Blair in attendance with Q&A and a signing after the show.

In preparation, I came up with an idea to create homage to EC horror comics by reinterpreting the movie poster of the film. I also decided I was going to have to create my own custom photo stats to make it look as 'real' as possible. I should have renamed the Crypt Keeper as Mr. Howdy but oh well.

After the film and Q&A I got to meet her and give her a hug. I asked her to remark "your all going to die up there" but she would only do 'nice' remarks like "sweet dreams". I think it came out pretty good and I have a fun story to go with it.

The weird thing is that I thought I'd seen one at a local comic shop. I'm not being facetious, I genuinely thought I'd seen one.

I was talking to someone who sold a comic on eBay that had Bob Denver on the cover. His customer was Bob Denver. I'd have given it to him. I thought that was cool.

1942 copy of Print Magazine with a Picture Stories from the Bible comic bound inside.


1943 copy of Print Magazine with an article by Max Gaines telling the history of comics from a 1943 perspective.



A slipcase that included the two issues.

I'd never seen the #1, and it's the artwork on the #2 that looks familiar. I need to go back and look. It was a company that's been selling comics since the 70's and they have a stockpile of comics that are in storage. They periodically pull unusual stuff out of storage to restock their store. It was probably lower grade. Or I could just be imagining it. I'm reasonably sure I'd seen it in their store among some really oddball Golden age stuff that was in low grade (chunks missing etc.). I probably paid attention to it because it was in better shape than anything else in the beat up box.
