SPIDER-MAN, CAPT. AMERICA, FF, TMNT, SAVAGE SWORD, more...
Pam purchased a delightful collection yesterday that consisted of two full
long boxes of
comics. Half of those older issues were posted for you into our
link this morning, and the rest should appear by tomorrow morning. Bigger
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (1963),
but this collection actually was quite diverse, with dozens of older titles
represented. Please bear in mind, however, that we (mostly) received only
one copy of each issue in that grade, so many of the key issues will sell
out quite quickly.
FANTASTIC FOUR #49
While Pam was buying older comics, I came up with a near-complete set of
WOLVERINE (1988) #1-#150,
a bunch of later
IDW TEEN-AGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES,
and a huge stack of the very desirable 1970's
SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN
Magazines. I also purchased an incredibly rare set of the 1970's British
Warren Magazine EERIE #1-#4. Woo!
Not to be outdone, our head buyer, Will Moulton, today added the largest
collection of scarce
(and promo editions) that I have ever seen. All of those scarce issues will
appear in tomorrow (Saturday's)
links. So you know, the new update is generally posted at about noon on
Saturdays. Also, all of our newly acquired
Silver Age Comics,
and newer comics listed in
are available to you at 30% off the listed price when you utilize our new
GREATDEAL! codeword. Only new issues, a few variants, and our CGC's are
exempt from this very generous discount.
In other news, I am heading for New York City on Tuesday. I will be stopping
in Allentown, PA on Wednesday morning to have breakfast with my good friend,
Oliver Hochran. I am also making a point to visit with comics dealers John Paul
and Michael Williams in New Jersey. John Paul's awesome monthly
will be held on Sunday morning, at the
Clifton Community Center.
Sadly I have to miss
(which is my favorite comics show in America!), as I am obligated to be in NYC
with the Queen Mother of the Americas for the victory brunch of the new elected
Monarchs of the imperial Court of New York that morning. Sigh...
So you know, I will also have to miss most of Michael Carbonaro's wonderful
Big Apple comics show
for the same reason. I will try to stop by for a few
hours on Saturday morning, but by Saturday afternoon I will be needing to head
back to the Marriott Marquis in order to get dressed in my tuxedo. The annual
coronation of Monarchs for the New York Court is called
"Night of a Thousand Gowns,"
and it is the most prestigious drag event in America. Imagine being in a room
with over 500 of the most beautiful female impersonators on the planet, all
vying with each other for who can be the most over-the-top gorgeous. You have
never, ever, seen such beautiful hair, gowns, shoes, jewelry, and makeup.
If you have an interest in attending, tickets are $450 each for this
gala charity ball
Marriott Marquis Hotel,
and they do sell out each year. A four course meal
is included, as is an open bar, and unlimited free desserts and coffee at midnight.
Sir Ian McKellen, CBE
(Gandalf from LOTR and Magneto from X-MEN) is our honorary ball chair this year.
Dustin Lance Black
WHEN WE RISE
will also be honored, as will many other LGBTQ performers and personalities. All
proceeds will benefit the
Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund.
After having been blessed to attend two previous NOTG balls, I am really looking
forward to this year's incredible event!
Line to get into the St. Francis Center
My final item for today is a quick mention that I helped deliver over 250 pairs of
shoes and boots today to the
St. Francis Center
"Feeding Denver's Hungry"
founder, Jim Sharper. We met with the director of the
St. Francis Center
on Monday, and he told us that obtaining shoes for his 600-700 homeless clients
was his #1 priority. His timing could not have been more perfect, as we had just
received a huge donation of shoes and boots from our comics fans at
and from the supporters of
"Feeding Denver's Hungry."
Knowing that our entire truckload of shoes and boots was going to help those in
need, totally made our day.
