We shouldn’t just collect or flip books, we should also read them. A good story can make your purchase well worth the money spent if you ask me. After all, we buy books to read for entertainment right? Even if you can’t flip them, reading is just as rewarding.
Hopefully everyone had a safe and fun holiday over Thanksgiving.

Once again, a chicken is going to tell all you people what to buy, what to spec on and what to just flat out avoid.

As you all know, AgentPoyo is the alter ego of Anthony. That’s probably why you all like me more right? I kid, I kid. You can ask Mel or Blind Adam that I’m real cause they’ve met me if any of you had any doubts.
Oh look at that snappy new title? Because I don’t only spec now, I tell you what to not buy, well, at least don’t buy to possibly flip or make profit later on.
A shout out to our regular visitor Vann for the suggestion. I liked it so much, I’m sending him a signed Eric Powell Spongebob #73 comic book.

It’s turkey week here in America. For all of you not aware of American holidays, this Thursday is the day all us Americans sit down to celebrate something that never actually happened. But we like to think we’re really nice people who get along with the people we stole land from.

Getting close to the end of the year and things are getting busy. I have been swamped at work this week so have spent so much time on that I have almost forgot what is important. Comics. Our weekly break from the grind to get to the shops and get the good reads, spec pics, possible flips, back issues, and excuse to hide in the bathroom for 10 minutes to read the latest adventure of our favorite characters, you married guys (and gals and, heck, anyone who has seen “This is 40”) know what I am talking about

MondoCon was great this year. Lots of great art, great guests. The panels I attended were interesting with good insight on upcoming Mondo toys and what goes on in the minds of the comic book creators but now, it’s time to move on though, to the best day of the week, new comic book day.

Halloween is upon us. The Walking Dead Season 8 starting back up with the All Out War story line has me started in comparing the books with the show. We also get blessed with some new Stranger Things episodes with Season 2 coming out on Netflix. The Simpsons Halloween special was awesome this past Sunday as well. This is just a great time a year for entertainment.

Every Wednesday of each week comes a new comic book day, if you weren’t already aware. If you weren’t, what are you doing here? This new comic book day we comic nerds rejoice and spend our hard earned cash on books we need, don’t need and hope to possibly flip so we can buy more books.

Is it Wednesday already? This great American Family Roadtrip has me disconnected from everything. Not even paying attention to what day it is. Thankfully, Anthony is there to send me a furious text to remind me to keep my deadlines. I have seen so much over the past week that it has been amazing, breathtaking really. Visited the Goonies Beach for one… Oh wait, that’s right, Comics… Here you go. As always, chime in if you love it or hate it in the comments. Don’t hold back you won’t hurt my feelings.

Well here we are again, another Wednesday, new comics coming out and you want to now what is hot. Well, the best I can do is tell you what I think, feel free to agree, disagree, or poke fun in the comments. One thing I can tell you is hot is driving across the country in an RV with your family. We are going modified National Lampoon Vacation style, and while there has been no Christy Brinkley in a Ferrari, Anthony still won’t let me off of writing up my picks. So before he puts out an APB for me, here we go… Continue reading “Poyo’s Picks for July 12th, 2017”
Happy 4th of July….Today I take my journey of becoming BBQ Master (I’ve never grilled before, I’m a city kid what can I tell ya.) I was knee deep in research on Charcoal and Wood Chips and Chimneys when I had to stop to bring you guys the Variants of the Week. Pretty decent week so let’s hop right into it Continue reading “Mel V.'s Variant Picks for 7/5/17”
Hey gang, another Wednesday is upon us. Coming off the heels of an American holiday, and like all crappy bosses, Anthony has me picking comics instead of watching fireworks. That is ok because I am getting ready for another American tradition, the road trip. The family and I are setting out in a couple weeks for a good old fashioned National Lampoon style jaunt. Oh, right, it is Tuesday/Wednesday, depending on when you are reading this, and you want the good stuff. Never fear, your old pal Poyo has some picks for you. Like them, hate them, let me know in the comments. Continue reading “Poyo’s Picks for July 5th, 2017”
