I just linked to an eBay auction about a figure and saw this text in the auction.  I’ve seen it before.  It makes me cringe.  And usually I do not bid. "Seller will LEAVE FEEDBACK in return once Buyers RECEIVED purchased items & LEFT FEEDBACK for Seller. " According to this, feedback for the buyer…

gulliver02.jpg A pretty damn cool thing, this is.  It’s the pack-in catalog for the Secret Wars figures released by the Gulliver toy company in Brazil. Note that all the figures come with stands, as well.  I’ve only ever seen two of the carded Gulliver releases come up for sale, and they’ve both been very expensive.  Hopefully…

An APA or Amateur Press Association is a group of people who produce individual pages or magazines, which are typically referred to as “zines,” that are sent to a Central Mailer for collation and distribution to all members of the group. Long before the advent of the internet and personal computers, APAs were a way…

Anime Boston – What is a Super-Hero fan to buy? Saturday.  I had circled the dealer rooms twice.  Only New England Comics display caught my eye.  They had trade paperbacks of their Tick series.  But at NYCC earlier this year I had been able to pick up Showcase volumes for 5$ each.  25$ or more…

It’s no secret around these parts that I’m a Super Powers collector.   I have a complete loose collection and a (near) complete carded collection.   But, I can’t just stop with the 33 figures in the line.   For the past 3 years I have been buying Super Powers customs.   Mostly loose, but…

I spent last weekend at Anime Boston, a convention for Anime fans.  Like comic conventions, they have panels, people dressed as characters, costume contests, artists signings, dealer rooms, etc.  I hope to cover several aspects of the convention over a series of blogs. One panel we attended was "The Chibi Project."

When the end result shows up in the mail in bunches, it makes the soreness in the morning and the aches and pains when I roll into my condo at 11:30pm each night worth it.  My boss at the piano store (where I have my packages sent) was kind enough to drop them into my…

Between the years 1987 and 1996 writer/illustrator Mark Schultz composed 14 issues of comic brilliance called Xenozoic Tales. I struggle not to sound trite when describing Mark’s visual art and storytelling. I find when rereading Xenozoic Tales, for instance, I get stuck on certain beautiful panels that leave me just shaking my head in awe….

Yesterday President Obama observed Memorial Day in the tradition of sitting U.S. presidents, by placing a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery just outside Washington, D.C. Before the ceremony, a number of university professors petitioned the White House, urging Obama “to end a longstanding practice of sending a wreath to…

electro04.jpg Well, hello everybody!  I thought I’d switch things up a bit this week and do my first Secret Wars highlight.  Not just content to give an overview of some common ruffian, I’m starting things off with a bang and putting the spot light squarely on Electro. As most Secret Wars collectors know, the line had…
