Be upfront when you go. Say you want to take advantage of the deals and if they are willing to be a little nicer, you are willing to buy a lot more.

Also, I am so fucking ready for the Killjoys comic. So fucking ready.



I REALLY hope they keep the same villain from the music videos aka THE BEST FUCKING CAMEO EVER!

“I would say that the comic book market is the worst market that there is on the face of the earth for creative talent and the reasons are numberless and legion. I have had many talented people ask me how to get into the comic book business. If they were talented enough the first answer I would give them is, ‘Why would you want to get into the comic book business?’ Because even if you succeed, even if you reach what might be considered the pinnacle of success in comics, you will be less successful, less secure and less effective than if you are just an average practitioner of your art in television, radio, movies or what have you. It is a business in which the creator, as was mentioned before, owns nothing of his creation. The publisher owns it….”

-Stan Lee

*drops mic*
Comics have always been a niche market. Didn't get mainstream until the 2000s.

Stan Lee's right though. The publisher owns it. Even though its been mostly Kirby, & others writing the stories, Stan Lee to the casuals is the one who's been getting the credit for the comics.

But the best part of FCBD is that your LCS is most likely having the best deals on comics and graphic novels all year. Expect stuff like 40-60% off trades, buy 2 get 1 free, 25-75% off singles, huge discounts on old singles bins, 25-30% off statues/figurines, etc. Who knows.



The House of Mystery series I'm talking about is the one that relaunched in 2008.
My first FCBD was only last year, which is probably to my advantage because aside from the two hour line, i loved it. I seen some of the choices they have for this year, and we get to pick 3 at the local store. I know I'm going to grab Atomic Robo, and maybe Chakra (something about it just grabs my interest) 3rd one is gonna be whatever I see first. Plus there's probably gonna be more free comics thanks to the guest signings.

Saw Iron Man 3 this morning, loved it.

I wonder who will be at Midtown. I think Geofd Johns was there a few years ago to personally hand out and sign Blackest Night #0

Edit: Scott Snyder and some hack named Jim Lee are at Midtown this year. Good chance to get a Batman #18 cover signed or any of his Detective Run (personally I'd try and get Jock's Joker cover signed).

I don't think were getting anybody super big big at Flying Colors this year, though we are getting a few (5, I think, but they'll be signing at different times, I want the avatar comic, but I'm too early.)
