Finished Wizard World comic convention in Philly on Sunday. I went both Friday and Sunday for two disparate shopping experiences; early looting vs end of apocalypse scavenging. Both strategies paid out.
I went to one booth where the vendors were selling tons of bronze age comics for $3 each bagged and boarded; I picked up a ton of old X-Men from that, all in decent shape. Across the way, I found a copy of Captain America 117 for TEN DOLLARS! First appearance of the Falcon, looks like ok condition, but a great one to hold. Photo from Diamond Galleries, check out their site for some snazzy comic info:
Man that’s one fugly costume.
Also picked up first appearance of the Dazzler in X-Men as well as the first appearance of the Vision in Avengers. Two of my favorite characters. Dazzler was Lady Gaga before Gaga was Gaga. OR at least she was Miley Cyrus.
I always figured Dazzler’s music would have sounded like Robin Sparkles.
I’ll update the final day at Wizard World coming up next.
