Not a "fan" of Fan Expo - way too big and too many people for me and mostly non comics now compared to say 10 years ago....

Anybody remember the Paradise Comics Comicon??? That was nice - lots of comic vendors and a ton of creators - kicking myself for missing out on some who have not returned since!


Oh well....off to fight traffic, overpay for parking and wait in line to get in



Paradise comics my favourite comic shop...NOT

Anyone that is going on Thursday, I'd appreciate knowing what supply is like on the Jock variant Detective comics. I'm not going until Saturday and I'd like to get one.

I hope for Thursday to be my only day - will let you know what the supply looks like (will be my second stop?? - maybe first if no line up).

Hope to pick up at least 1 copy for myself - maybe a second on speculation??

If worst come to worst I'll have to go back for Friday.

Thanks for the update. It kinda sucks that you can't pick your own copy...

So i picked up another copy...dont know why..but they will let you pick out your own copy but needs to stay in the bag and board with the tissue cover in place ... Just kind of picked one with pristine corners and am hoping for the best...heard a rumour from the guy in line next to me that there are only 1000 of these...

what's cool and helps the value of these things is theres not three versions of it...like a trade dress, b&w virgin and color virgin copies. it stands on its own. Sort of like the Mayhew ASM 797/800 and the shattered comics homage covers. That helps.

I am going to take some initiative and suggest that anyone who is interested in meeting up after the show Saturday 7PM at the Loose Moose post in this thread.

Let us know how many people will be with you and when you expect to get there so we know to expect you and what size table we will need.

I am going to ask the guys at the CBCS booth and a couple friends to join us ehen I see them at the show

I think I am in. It may be just me or may be 3 of us, not sure yet. Are you looking at getting a table downstairs or upstairs?

Sorry..Thursday was my only day - here's what I got!!

3 of these Jock covers - picked ones with nicest corners
will leave covers on to keep prints off till I sell 1 or 2 and grade 1 or 2??




7 of these Marvel 25th Anniversary overs - might try for complete set?




Only went to the Con for a Terry Moore sketch - too bad he was only doing head sketches - still real nice!!








Even Went for a Dave Ross Iron Man!

If you go downstairs it's a lot less formal. More of a bar than a restaurant, but will probably be more noisy too. We go there before concerts or hockey games at the former Air Canada Centre, now Scotiabank Arena.
