Comic Book Saturday ( Updated on Sunday, no less...)



I have decided to post all the comics news on Saturdays now so here we go.......

My wife made the trip with me today to the flea market for Comic Book Saturday and I wish the news was all that good......

We arrived about 930am and the weather was already hot which means good crowds for the flea market. Nanners and I slowly took in all the deals and items that were being displayed until we made it around to the comic booth. I started looking to see what was out this week....and I began to slowly panic. There were 2 comics in particular I was looking for and I did not see either of them. I spoke with the younger gentleman at the booth and he said that they should have had the ones I was wanting. When the owner stepped in, he told me ...in a nice way.....that if I had a pull list with them, then maybe I would have the comics I wanted. I got close to him and said "well, I had one about 2 years ago with you and I STILL didn't get what I wanted. He looked surprised and then went through all of what he does to make sure everyone gets what they wanted. I kinda smiled when he said this because this is how it works......a customer comes in. Customer wants said comic. Said comic is not available. Owner then looks for comic in the bins. When said owner does not find said comic, he mysteriously finds one.....in another persons pull bin. So two questions were answered this fine day. However, today I received only one of what I wanted. Today's haul.......

Fantastic Four #536....I am very lucky to get this one, it's sold out nationwide.
Wizard Magazine #175
House of M #1 ( Variant Cover )

The comic I was unable to get my grubby little hands on was the New Avengers Special: The Illuminati. I am going to try and get this one on the Internet at mycomicshop.com. This one is another that was in demand this week. Marvel is having a great year so far both creatively and financially.

I didn't know that was the one you were looking for, I already have it.

No Poobah, he is looking for a comic book, not a misshapen stumpy penis. We are all aware that you "already have" that. ;)

And just to save you the trouble, "My Mom seems to like it". Happy?
