• The FANTASTIC FOUR/FF suite. All five collections. Allred’s just a few tables away, Bagley, too, so you could get an awful lot of signatures on those.
• CASANOVA: THE END OF MY STOCK. this is it. this is literally the last of these books in the wild outside of stores. The rest have all gone out of print of have been pulped. I’ll have a few sets of the ICON issues for EACH VOLUME; i’ll have the three color trades. I might bring some of the super-rare BIG ONE-COLOR HARDCOVER of LUXURIA. If i have any full Image sets, I’ll bring ‘em too but I… I might only have a GULA set anymore, I dunno.
• HAWKEYE hardcover, collecting 1-11 and some new extras. Oversized.
• IRON FIST omnibus trade, collecting ed, david, lots of other folks, and my, run on THE IMMORTAL IRON FIST in one volume. 18 issues, i think? Something like that. It’s a lot!
KELLY SUE will have lots of PRETTY DEADLY, CAPTAIN MARVEL, and AVENGERS ASSEMBLE.
This list will evolve as we get closer to leaving Thursday morning; if there’s anything you’re looking for in particular, add a note and if we have it, we’ll bring it.

* sometimes i have to pee. or eat. or want to take my kid over to get his ADVENTURE TIME comics signed by infamous Canadian cult criminal Ryan North, or by one of his legit art heroes, Mr. Jeff Smith. Please don’t be like that guy who threatened to murder me because i dared have to get up from my table at a time inconvenient to him. I promise i’ll do my best to be there as much as i possibly can. IN FACT don’t threaten to murder anyone. Ever. About anything. As far as hyperbole goes, it’s a shitty one. And, and, and maybe just we, as a, what, a culture, a fandom, drawn to hyperbole for effect, or out of laziness, or for comedic emphasis could, y’know, just work on that leaving that one in the toolbox, just in general. okay.
