Albany Comic Con : The Haul
So, yesterday I went to Albany Conic Con. This is the second year that I attended, but this time I didn’t take any pictures. The attendance seemed to be higher this year(it actually runs twice a year, but I attend the fall one), and at times, it was a little hard to maneuver through the crowd. Keep in mind that this is a small con held at the Holiday Inn.
It was a great time, and there were plenty of great deals.
I’ll highlight everything in a few different posts. Today, I’ll just highlight a few of the comics that I picked up.
This one is long over due. This has got to be one of the most iconic covers in Marvel history! This was a big series when it came out, and this is the first time I’ve owned it since. I couldn’t get the dollar out of my pocket fast enough!
Like Spider-Ham from Marvel, you can’t go wrong with DC’s Captain Carrot. These are good, fun reads!
I know close to nothing about the TMNT comics from IDW. I do know that this is a 1 in 10 variant sketch cover though. The seller had it marked for $10, but said that everything was 50% off. I ended up getting it for $3.50. I’ll probably have to pick up the collected editions(if they exist), if I actually want to read the this(micro)series.
The Punisher is the first comic that I actively collected. I’m always happy to fill the early gaps in the series. I picked up issue #13 as well.
This is another title I collected in my first years of comic collecting, although I think the title had changed to Avengers West Coast by that time. 50 cents was too hard to resist for issue #2!
Those are just the highlights of 11 comics that came home with me. I also got a few toys, as well as some packs of some great early 90’s trading cards. We’ll get to that stuff in a few days.
