I went to a small comic book show in Flemington today. I haven’t been to a really small local con in a while. This one was pretty cool. They had a few artists as guests, including Darren Auck, who I chatted with for a bit, and bought a sketch from.
I bought a handful of recent DC Rebirth back issues from a guy who was selling them for cover price, buy 2 get 1 free. And a few other older random comics, including an obscure Matt Howarth comic that I don’t think I’ve ever seen before. I actually spent more (on comics) at this show than I did at NYCC (though I still didn’t spend very much).
And they gave out a goodie back at the door with quite a few random items in it, including some X-Men back issues and other random comics. Overall, it was a nice little show. Everyone was cool and friendly. There weren’t too many people there when I arrived, but I went early, so maybe it got busier in the afternoon.
Not a bad way to spend an hour or so on a Sunday.

In an act of unmitigated hubris, I decided to try upgrading the firmware on my router today. I’d read about a security issue that could affect DD-WRT last week, and […]
It’s Friday and I’m back in my hotel room. I have once again paid for the expensive hotel WiFi, so I might as well type up and post a little […]
I paid for WiFi in my hotel room today, and I brought my iPad and Bluetooth keyboard, so I might as well write a “day one” post for NYCC. I […]
I’ll be going to NYCC this week. I’ve got tickets for Thursday and Friday only, so I’m taking a couple of days off from work, and making a little mini-vacation […]
Since I got interested in U2 again recently, I’ve started looking into their history of remastering and reissuing their older albums over the last decade. It looks like they remastered […]
