        1. I like the characters on it. Especially the dad and son. The smoking witch and the pony tale husband drive me nuts. They are gross. I like the basement the obnoxious guy has.

  1. What to do on a Wednesday with no new comic books. The DC Direct e-mail is still maybe 6 or so hours away. I got tracking info for X-Men Dark Phoenix shipping from target last week. maybe that’ll arrive this morning.
    I got the Multi item shipping discount thing figured out on Bonanza this weekend and loaded a bunch of books already for free with a huge shipment of Zenescopes books expected this week if UPS ever gets the boxes here from the Zenescope sale a couple weeks ago. I like this bonanza thing. No monthly fee, No yearly fee, no upload per item fee, they only charge 3.5% of the sale in commision, exempt the first $10 of shipping from that, appear to handle collecting the Sales Tax themselves, imported the E-Bay store and Synched it with a couple of clicks and has room for another 78,000+ items to get listed for free. Seems almost too good to be true.

    I went ahead and ordered 1,000 new business cards with the address to the Bonanza store on it last week to give out to walk-ins and include in shipments from other sites. That 3.5% saves a nice chunk off E-bay’s 10% plus monthly contract rate.

    I found a great deal on Schwinn 26″ adult tricycles last week also. It’d be nice to see that arrive today also. big basket in the back and I already have another one for the front ready to go. I just need an extra tiny dog bicycle helmet for the puppy now.

    1. X-Men Dark Phoenix arrived in the mail but checking my tracking numbers at UPS shows all 14 boxes out for delivery today so that’s great news and means no movie watching until maybe Friday night.

  2. why do they make bike helmets for dogs?weird.and really Canadian storage wars?like American storage wars wasn’t bad enough?w.t.f. happened to t.v.?even the b.s. reality shows have gone to shit . I would say more but this site is safe for work or something o.k. need to go find and buy a mickey mouse costume love ya all blind adam out

    1. We’re all adults here but keep it to what they say on prime time late night. None of that porn talk, leave the locker room talk in the locker room among very close friends..

  3. PIcking up:

    While there seemed to be more comics vendors than in the past, the prices were higher than the going rate for most books and on Sunday vendors did not lower prices at close. I spoke to a few people that went with the intention of buying books that bought no books. The books I did buy were at a $1 booth, 6/$5, that had multiple copies of filler books. There were probably about 50 copies of the Death book and about 20 copies of Army of Darkness 1 which I did not initially pick up but were gone when I went back. I saw someone buy a small stack of the original Dark Crystal 1 from this vendor. I did miss out on a raw Cavewoman 1 for $75.
