Planet Comicon

Spent the day at Planet Comicon today and scored the following loot:

1) Al Williamson’s Flash Gordon: A Lifelong Vision of the Heroic.

2) Captain Britain and MI-13, Issues 8, 12, 13 and Annual 1, continuing to fill in gaps in my collection.

3) Doctor Voodoo – Avenger of the Supernatural, Issues 1 and 3 (and a special reprint of his origin from the 70s).

4) Kevin Smith’s Green Hornet #1 — Smith’s unfilmed script, turned into a comic…. so I can properly bitch about what could have been when the Seth Rogan monstrosity comes out.

5) The Essential Dr. Strange, Vol. 3 (collecting the beginning of his Bronze Age run, which I read way back when).

6) Howard Chaykin’s American Flagg, Vol. 1 HC — collecting one of the first adult/independent comic series I ever got into….

and the Biggies:

7) TOMB OF DRACULA Omnibus, Vol 1 (variant cover) — I’ve been looking for this sucker for a LONG time, and it’s damn near impossible to find without spending BOOKOO bucks. I’m very, very pleased. This was my main goal for the Con.

I was completely unprepared to find this, however — and grabbed it as soon as I saw it:

8) Brush WIth Passion: The Art and Life of Dave Stevens (Ltd. Edition Hardcover). This sucker went out of print the DAY it was released. I had resigned myself to never getting one. WOOT!

Not a bad haul at all.
