60% Off Codeword Sale On All Back Issue Comics and Magazines
If you are one of the millions of people around the world who celebrate Thanksgiving,
I hope that it was a time of love and joy for you. My own Thanksgiving was especially
blessed, primarily because I made a connecting flight in Chicago with only five minutes
to spare, after my flight from NY LaGuardia on Wednesday evening was inexplicably delayed
for over an hour. Had I not have made that critical connection, I probably would have
missed Thanksgiving at home entirely, as there are essentially no empty seats on flights
during the holidays. The idea of sitting endlessly at O'Hare as a standby passenger on
Thanksgiving is truly my idea of a holiday nightmare...
In case you are wondering, I was in New York to get the two Avanyu images on my arms recolored.
Not only had those tattoos faded a little after eight years (in spite of my putting special
color-enhancing lotion on them every day), but I figured out recently that I had made a mistake
when I created the original color breakouts for my tattoo artist,
What I had failed
to take into account was that a combination of exposure to light and oxidation over 80+ years
had dulled the colors of the images as they appeared on my pots significantly from what
Van Gutierrez had intended when painting them at Santa Clara Pueblo during the 1930's. Simply
put, having my tattoos recolored also provided me with an excellent opportunity to also return
them to their original vibrancy. Suffice it to say, I am delighted with the outcome!
Moving on to news from
Mile High Comics,
my wife Nanette has also had a very nice Thanksgiving, due in large part to all of the 60% off
NANETTE codeword orders that we have been receiving. Nanette is using those funds to pay off
some of our company bills, including the totally unexpected $18,000+ cost of having our
building sprinkler system repaired. What should have turned out to be a relatively minor fix
turned quite expensive last week when it was discovered by our builder that a previous owner
(in a fit of complete madness...) had plugged a 3' storm drain next to our underground sprinkler
main. The only way to stop the continuing damage to our sprinklers was to re-open that storm
drain, and to then dredge out 300' of ditch next to our building so that vast amounts of water
would no longer pool next to our underground pipes. Sigh...
In any event, Nanette has asked me to keep our 60% off NANETTE codeword sale on all of our
back issue comics and magazines
in effect for you through the end of next week. I am normally quite averse to letting all of
our best back issues go at only 40% of list price, but I have survived my many years in the
comics business because I know when I have no choice but to bite the bullet. The 60% off sale
applies to all ten million+ of our
back issue comics and magazines,
excluding only new issues, a few variants, and our professionally-graded comics. Please do enjoy
the 60% off savings provided by the NANETTE sale with our sincerely thanks for helping us to
get our sprinklers repaired.
