Atlanta Comics Expo

Hello again, teeming masses (of like 3 people)!

This weekend marks the second annual Atlanta Comics Expo. As an Atlanta local, I'm excited that there's FINALLY a decent comics only show in the area. DragonCon (run by the same folks) is a great all-around show, but the comics aspect always seems to get burried under an avalanche of sci-fi celebrities and funny costumes (although I appreciate those as well). My source for more expensive comics, namely my near complete run of Silver/Bronze Age Namor and the first appearances of Dr. Strange and Moon Knight, will have a booth at the show this year. He's also the source for the Neal Adams era Green Lantern/ Green Arrow run I mentioned a while back on the blog. Since I was going to the con anyway, I figured I would look at the books in person before I made any purchases, not to mention the savings on shipping. I'll let you guys know how the con went, and if I got any of the GL/GA books, after the Expo this weekend.

I'm trying to decide if I should look for some older Iron Man and spend a little more, or just hunt quarter bins. Hrrm.

Hey, glad to see you back blogging! I'm looking forward to your take on the Green Lantern/Green Arrow run.

Thanks Benton. Sorry about the hiatus, but holidays, family, and especially work left me with bery little time for a while there. Things have eased up now, and I can return to the helm, refreshed!
