Today was Hero Bot Con 2013…and it was amazing! I didn’t attend the convention as a guest, I was a vendor, selling the board game “Cache Me If You Can!” Even if I wasn’t a vendor, I would have gone and had a great time. It’s been a while since I’ve been to a comic convention, maybe a year, so It was great to see what everyone in the area had to offer. We sold a few board games (and a few plush dolls) and walked the convention floor, finding lots of goodies! Cash was tight and I had a table to run, so I didn’t get everything I wanted, but the things I did get are awesome!
I wasn’t going to try this series out, only because it’s part of the Infinity event, but wanted it because Luke Cage is one of my favorite Marvel heroes…and they were only charging $2!
This is a collection that I’ve wanted for a while, but just never picked it up. Usually, when I was on the lookout for something new to read, there were other things I wanted to read. Also, it didn’t hurt that it was half off cover price, making it only $7!
This is the first thing that I picked up, because I can’t pass up anything Fantastic Four! I have the original set of FF minimates, but this new Mr. Fantastic looks awesome and Dr. Doom comes with a Doombot head. A steal for only $8!
The absolute, hands down, best thing I purchased was the hardcover Stuff of Legend omnibus. I’ve already read, and reviewed, volume one and loved it, so this omnibus collects volumes one and two into one collection. The one of the writers of Stuff of Legend, Mike Raicht, was present at the convention and signed and personalized my hardcover. Raicht is an awesome guy and I wish great things for him and his fellow creators on Stuff of Legend. This was my most expensive purchase, at $30, but was well worth it (and actually what I wanted to pick up at the con).
