Comic Convention part II

I picked up a nice little smattering of trades the last couple of days at the Con. I got Brian Bendis’ “Fortune and Glory”, which is all about his dealings with the Hollywood machine, a great hardcover copy of Dark Knight Strikes Again really cheap, a copy of the Hardcover Hulk “Return of the Monster” collection, J. Torres’ The Copybook Tales, Y: The Last Man – Cycles, and last but not least, the Kevin Smith “Chasing Dogma” trade that I’ve been searching for.

Just as we were leaving the show, I saw this great trade for “Herobear and the Kid”, which I would have picked up if it weren’t $30.00 (and I was down to about $29.00).

All in all though, it was a great show. I got to meet Brian Michael Bendis and J. Torres. I got to buy a bunch of cool stuff for good prices, and I sat in on a couple of good panels.

There’s another show in October put on by these guys, and a show in November that I’m really looking forward to. It’s a good time to be a comic geek!
