This weekend in Washington DC was Awesome Con. Awesome Con is the premiere comic book convention in the Nations Capital. This year, Stan Lee was a featured guest, and along with his appearance, he brought along a showcase of some of his collectables.
The con itself was pretty good. It had a selection of comic creators and celebrities. Saturday was packed as seen in this brief crowd video:
While there were a good many comic dealers, the highlight was seeing Stan Lee’s collection. Check out some highlights below:
I did pick up some good deals from Larry’s Comics, always a must stop if you see his booth at a con. I picked up an Invincible #1 Larry’s Comics Variant from him on a great deal. Also picked up a Jean Grey #1 J. Scott Campbell Convention Variant. Had a lot of other great deals found around town including two newsstand Batman #24 and a Poe Dameron #10 40th Anniversary variant for $1, so venturing off the con was as good as being at it.
I filmed an episode of Barzinga, the drinking and convention Web series with Baltimore Lauren. Will have that on here when it gets posted.
