Back from the MotorCity Comic Con

I got a few back issues I was looking for. FINALLY got one of the Booster Gold shirts I wanted. Got a few other goodies too. There was a guy that claimed he was a comic expert but everything he said was pure B.S. (Guy didn't even know who Booster was.) I out talked him on comic stuff for both Marvel and DC. It was fun.

There was a major downer though. I wanted to get art from the artists I like. Maybe get a Booster picture a Guy Gardner, Mayday Spider-Girl or a bat pic. Some artists I was too shy to approach but I thought why not get something from Ethan van Sciver and go from there? Big mistake. His prices were too expensive for me and after that I didn't want to look at the other prices.

In related news I'm considering a subscription or two though a different site. I might just get one. JLI might be ending though I keep getting conflicting information. Apparently there are other series with lower numbers that should end before it does.


  1. I hope that you had fun at the convention! Congratulations on your Booster shirt.

    As far as I know, JLI is supposed to end with 12. I guess they'll pretend that it was supposed to be a twelve part mini-series or something.


  2. I sure did!

    It still seems odd to me. I guess we'll see how it goes.

  3. Glad to hear that you had a good time and got some stuff you were looking for. Good luck with the subscriptions. I hope they work out for you and I was bummed to hear about JLI. I was enjoying it and loved getting it in the mail.

  4. Thanks! I did but I also had to talk myself out of getting more. There were so many t-shirts I wanted. Me too, on both accounts.
