avengers67Latest additon: Avengers 67 from 1969. I think it’s the 2nd appearance of Ultron. Picked it up cheap on Ebay, looks to me like about a 60-6.5. Looks great for about 45 years old! I read it the other night, this was the beginning of the era where Roy Thomas was doing a lot of writing, and Stan had become the editor. Early Barry Smith art in this issue, too. Surprised it’s not selling for more. Good for me!

Frightful Four!

These guys were always cool….kinda the anti-FF. Somehow, of course, Reed and the gang would always figure out a way to defeat them.

One of my favs that I still own…FF #112  15 cent cover price from 1971.  Hard to find in top grade, since the black cover shows stress marks very well.  I would estimate my copy as Very Fine, probably about a 7.5.  I’ve seen comparable copies on ebay going for about $180.  A 9.6 was on there for $1750.  Doubt they will ever get that for it, but who knows? Perfectly happy with my copy!  I always like the Hulk/thing battles…Benji usually got the worst of it, but I rooted for him anyway.

Went to my first comic convention in a long time…back from when before they weren’t just a bunch of dealers in a warehouse.  I always said I was going to get to one of the big ones, but California is a bit far away…anyway, I took my wife and son to Chicago for the weekend to check out the C2E2 convention at the McCormick Place.  I enjoyed myself immensely, and so did my son.  Big mistake bringing the wife. After 2 hrs she was done with it.  I wish I could have had another day.  Picked up a couple of posters (Thor and a cool copy of Spidey #122), two t-shirts, Thing and Thor, a couple of graphic novels (Crecy by warren ellis, and First Class x-men book),  and a few other trinkets.  I wanted to get a new statue, but didn’t really run across anything in my price range that I really wanted.  Saw a new Marvel Select Thing figure that I will be pre-ordering.

I’m not big on autographs, but I did consider getting in line for Garth Ennis, one of the craziest and best writers out there.  Only thought about it for a moment, however, especially after I looked at the line.  I didn’t go to any of the panels, that’s another thing I’ll be doing the next time I’m at one of these (by myself?).

One of the main reasons I really wanted to go to this one was that it was a real COMIC-BOOK convention, not a hollywood-type thing.  Lots of dealers on hand with lots of long boxes to investigate.  Only thing I bought was a Fine copy of Thor 177, a book I fondly remember from another lifetime ago.

in fact, that will make a fine Random Thor cover:
