Thanksgiving Cutout #1

This seemed to go over petty well for Halloween, so I thought I'd do it for Thanksgiving! The only problem is I only have three Thanksgiving cutouts. You'll see one cutout per day for the next three days. Enjoy! :)

Akron Comicon 2014 Review Part 4: And The Rest

This is my last post about this year's Akron Comicon.

Just some randomness from the show.

The cover of the program.

There weren't a lot of vintage toys. This dealer had some stuff under his table. I love the old lunch boxes.

And the Ben Cooper Batman costume. I have that Hulk game.

My brother, nephew and me as the Avengnerds!

I also love vintage trading cards. This dealer has been around here forever! I remember buying from him when I was a kid.

More cards!

Some day this will be mine!

Wall 'o comics!

Happy Life Day!

Akron Comicon 2014 Review Part 3: Stuff I Bought

I go to these comic book shows and never buy any actual comic books! Haha! Here's what I did pick up:

Hulk Marvel Universe figure, Hulk String Doll and one KISS trading card.

The original art for Hulk Annual #17 (1991), page 18. Story: Subterranean Wars (Part II) - As Old as the Hills. Written by Peter David, penciled by Ron Wagner, inked by Mike Witherby.
Inker Mike Witherby had a stack of original art for $25 each. He had two pages from this issue and I liked this one better. Even though it doesn't actually feature the Hulk, it does have Rick Jones, Mole Man and Tyrannus. I'm gonna have to glue the word balloons back on.

Animation cel from the 1995-96 Savage Dragon cartoon. Bought from Art-Toons.

Painter Smurf production drawing from the 1980s Smurf cartoon. Also bought from Art-Toons.

Acroyear from the Micronauts sketch card by artist Carter Allen.

Knifehead from Pacific Rim sketch greeting-card by Carter Allen. I won this sketch at his table.
