For Easter, I decided to give my niece and nephew each a bundle of comics from my collection. There were some Wizard “0” editions of Slingers and Thunderbolts, some of the Leave It To Chance run, as well as oldies like Shogun Warriors and some Teen Titans. In the process, I discovered that I will probably have more success going through my comics and pulling out the “good” ones and leaving the garbage, efficiently picking the wheat from the chaff instead of vice versa.
I have a lot of bad comics.
Top dollar on eBay is a tough road when it comes to selling collectibles, especially comics, and I’d like to blow out a large volume at once. I think I can do this, but I need a Con. I need a cheap comic convention.
It’s actually tougher than I thought to find one on short notice where I can get a decent affordable table.
For a quick and local con, the Ramada in Bordentown, NJ, offers a low key event (I’ve added a link of a past con with good photos). Unfortunately, I may have to go old school and actually call people since websites like THIS want you to be a paid member to get the info. Not cool, not cost efficient. I need a table for 4-6 longboxes and space to lay out some of my toys, hopefully the old GI Joes, and if I can bring 2-4 high end comics like some of my Skyman duplicates, it’s a lotto ticket for a nice payoff (and covering costs).
After about an hour of searches (which on the internet means about 10-15 minutes plus distractions), I think I’ve found a contact. Crossing the fingers now. Also hoping I don’t have a conflict. I know it’s a bit of a dull bookkeeping entry here, but I’m hoping at least one of you reads this and finds a good NJ convention schedule for this year…
