Discovering the Back Issue Bin

Wizard World 2011 Interview with Brad Guigar

I am sitting down with Brad Guigar, not walking past him, not buying anything from him (although I did that too); nor am I just passing the bull in transit. No, I am sitting down next to the Creator of [...]

Fat Jack’s: My Local Comic Shop

What is it about comic books that every week we are compelled to flock to the comic book shop and pick up our books of choice? To think I used to laugh at my sister when she said she needed to [...]

The Cost of… Insurance

I love my parents. This is for a few reasons. There are people out there that sometimes forget what their parents are to them. I have not. I have a father and stepmother that are wonderful and both love me [...]

To Read First, Or Collect First?

The first comic book of my collection (not my first comic book itself) was purchased from a 7-11. I can vaguely remember walking into the store because I wanted some chocolate, a slurpee, and to see if the new baseball [...]
