    still waiting to stumble across a box full of silver age keys for a buck each so these will tide me over for now.

  4. 1) Was Money Shot just a flash in the pan? It doesn’t seem to be doing much, but there was quite a word of mouth push promoting it from smaller alternative comic book stores in my area. In any case, I have the Mirka Andolfo variant coming in the mail.

    2) I have the Comics Elite Venom 19 variant coming in the mail. It doesn’t seem to be moving very much either.

    3) The Frankenstein Comic Swap is this Saturday in Portland, OR. I have a table again. If anyone mentions CHU, I will happily provide a discount.

    4) Thinking about picking up the new Hellblazer and possibly Harleen 2 if the lcs has copies of 1 to go with it.

    5) I’m still loading comics into the CLZ database. I’m maybe about halfway done but the stats are interesting to me: so far 1591 comics, 338 series, 46 signed, 16 sketched (and I haven’t yet touched the short box and a half of signed books). Most of my books didn’t have a barcode so I had to manually input them. Most comics by series: Poison Elves, Vol. 2 followed by Saga. Book I was surprised was not in CLZ: Goblin Studios 1 since there seem to be so many copies in my area.

    6) I’m glad I picked up a copy of Lady Death Merciless Onslaught 1 Shannon Maer cover when it originally came out. Total impulse buy at the time that I have been sitting on (not literally).

    7) While loading comics into CLZ, I discovered I had a copy of Rick & Morty #44 Gsus Comics variant, a 500 issue print run according to an eBay seller. Since I don’t have a second copy, that leads me to believe I did not pick it up at the Oni table at RCCC, meaning that somehow my lcs had it on the shelf mixed in with the rest of the copies and I just happened to pick it up.
