not comics

A very brief thing, this is not normal… But just in case…Mikey-tmnt-2012

Last week I had a ct-scan done and they found a spot on my skull. They doctor couldn’t tell me what it was but said not to worry. I’m not worrying.

They did an MRI/MRA yesterday and now want me to go back in for more testing.

Not good news when they say don’t worry and yet they have to do more to find out whats wrong. All this because I’ve been having some serious migraines that have recently begun getting worse and lasting longer!

All comics I have for sale are on sale: Make me an Offer. I must sell it all to pay the bills so far (cray cray bills).

If I drop off the radar for a while, now you know…

Things are okay but I’ll know more later.

Plus I have requested two other shops hold for me a couple… And I emailed Jetpack to hold a bunch of their two variant covers as well. Wednesday is a great day to be a Turtles fan! I will have an extra copy of the A & B covers.
Thanks for visiting!

new Turtles pick ups!

These aren’t comics, but are related…

I love me some Turtles stuff.

Ooze!

Ooze!

This contains Mike & Raph, so I just need Leo & Don. Although you think they would have done some of the others too!

2013-05-26_17-46-40_964 2013-05-26_17-46-50_47Got these bad boys at Target.

Been seeing how crazy the prices are on them on Ebay, FB groups, and the ‘drome message boards…

Anyways, that’s all I have for today.

If you find Don & Raph, let me know!

Coast City ComicCon 2011

I took pictures and attended this event, but apparently never posted anything about it or showed off the art done that day… Eek! Better late than never right?
So some pictures then:

Coast City signing

So Coast City is the other comic shop in Portland… And they are having Rich Woodall up to visit to sign copies of his TMNT #22 Phantom Variant cover!

tmnt22woodall-blueThis is the cover! FREAKING AWESOME RIGHT?!?

Coast City’s Facebook Page

Rich Woodall is awesome!

wpid-2013-05-04_09-10-56_613.jpgHere he is posing at FREE COMIC BOOK DAY this year at Jetpack Comics event!

wpid-2013-05-04_14-18-32_17.jpgHere he is giving me, Johnny Raygun, bunny ears!

I’m guessing he will have plenty of comics to sign for everyone as well as some prints sorta like this one below.wpid-2013-05-11_12-03-25_834.jpg

The event is on June 2nd, in Portland Maine, at Coast City Comics from 1pm I believe until 6pm.

He will also be at Rubber Chicken Comics in Massachusetts the day before… You’ll have to look that one up if you’re so inclined.

Don’t forget to check out Artist Alley Comics online where you can see plenty of Rich’s current work as well as lots of other crazy great talent!!

And some other examples of his work are below, without my endless babbling: Continue reading

This just in: TMNT Adventures: The Year of the Turtle from Archie

This three issue mini series just arrived. Condition is a bit less than my standard picks but okay for what these are.

Check ’em out! Story was geared toward the younger reader being an Archie series release but was rather decent overall. A few short skips around to push the story to fit into three parts as it could have easily been five or six issues and a bit more fleshed out.
Eventually I’ll get better at these…

Click the links above for two very different (but valid) reviews for Green Lantern #20.

I’m not good at writing them, but I had things to say to both of these fellas for their opinions on the book. (Hope you guys don’t mind.)

TMNT 21 Ottawa ComicCon

It has arrived!!

Heard there has only been one other copy available so far on ebay.
Lucky for me I went on when I did. I just love this cover!

site stats 2

I was just looking over the over-all stats for the page. Things have definitely improved since that first month.

I had a total of 3 page views. Of course I had just the intro post, no logo and pretty much zero content.

As time goes, some content comes and repeats and then some days I try stuff and it works, and then there’s the things that just aren’t consistent. I know that last part will help majorly and I’m working on it.

Below is a graph, from WP, showing the beginning up to now.

The best ever month was November of last year, with nearly 500 views. Then WP changed things up to give a dual count. As of the time in the image, 210 page views for this month! Works for me!

TMNT 21 Ottawa Con Variant

TMNT-21_Cover-RE-Ottawa-Comiccon-674x1024

So I’ve been watching for this book to come out on eBay (or any other source) and even sent a FB message to the Comic Con people. (They weren’t selling any…bummer.)

I just happened on eBay the other night and was looking for it. It was listed as Buy It Now.  So I did. It should arrive in a couple days. So far I haven’t seen any others listed for sale. I’d imagine anyone who attended the show and was given it, made out great for one, but also must be hanging onto them. Either they didn’t give many out or everyone but the guy I got mine from are keeping them. I know a few others that have this book on their want list. For now, its just lined out on mine until this actually arrives. I’d hate for it to get here from Canada and be torn in half or something.

Check back soon for arrival pictures.

Let me know if you’re looking for it too… Maybe I’ll sell you mine…. Just kidding. I’m keeping this. 😉

Just in…

I just posted some pictures but today a couple more books arrived.

TMNT 21 RE Diamond Retailer Summit variant. I snagged this buy-it-now on eBay with Free Shipping!

Next to it is Jim Lawson’s Kickstarter book Dragonfly! I haven’t read it yet but I contributed and found my name in the list and the seriously nice sketch of John on the inside front cover. Almost threw out the sticker that was included!  Can’t wait to read this and see more!

That’s all this time… I’m sure I will have more soon!
Looking to track down a TMNT 21 Ottawa variant cover. If you see one…
