I was also thinking that art JB posted is the work of Victor Bridges. What elements to it that aren't JB-like are indicative of Bridges' style.

Ted, it's great that the comic book club had a booth at OC CON. Did the students sell any artwork or comics?

 If the club sets up at another convention, it would be cool if the students created a comic book of their own, maybe an anthology, choosing some class artists, and some writers, with everyone pitching their ideas. You could have a limited run printed and sold at their booth. Just an idea that could educate them on both working on a comic and the publishing and retail end of things.

Some of you know (from facebook) that I ran into Renee &
Michael Golden at Epcot. I thought that was pretty
cool. They were down for the Star Wars Con.



And since this thread started with Frank Miller, I think
Paul Greer has a photo to share here too.

I though of Jay Garrick when I saw that picture of John Wesley Shipp.

Met a few more first timers at the East Coast Comiccon
including Watchmen colorist John Higgins.

So, I'm headed to Wizard World in Philadelphia on June 2nd. Gene Simmons is going to be there.

Also, a couple of weeks later, I'll be attending Awesome Con in DC. Stan Lee is a scheduled guest.

I'm getting autographs from both. I was considering having both sign my copy of Marvel Super Special #1 featuring KISS.

I don't really have any original printings of the classic Marvel comics that Stan is credited writing. But he is featured in this one (in the article about KISS putting there blood in the red ink).

Good idea? Any other suggestions?

I do have the Simmons solo album. From when it came out in '78. So, the cover's got some wear.

I've got the picture disc reissue from a few years back. He could sign that, I suppose.

I have plenty of potential items for Gene. I'm mostly trying to figure out something for Stan. Figured that "two-fer" might be a way to go.

I have Love Gun and Destroyer album covers signed by Ken Kelly. That might be an idea. Thanks for the input!

Stan is more difficult as the possibilities are endless!

And yet...I don't really have a lot of "Stan Lee" items, again, in terms of actual books he's written. I have a ton of Marvel Comics, but largely from the 70's and 80's.

I guess he could sign pretty much anything Marvel related...but I'd like it to be something, y'know...special.

I was considering purchasing some classic books, but that can get pricey. And what do you go with? And old FF? Spider-Man? The Hulk is my fav, so some Tales to Astonish?

I suggest you do a Two in One and get "STANíS SOAPBOX: THE COLLECTION" from the Hero Initiative.

Anyone else headed to Wizard World Philly?

I'll be in town tomorrow to check out the Gene Simmons Band show at the Trocadero. Then at the Convention all day Saturday.

Will probably try to give the wife a break and do something "normal" Saturday night. Maybe take her out to a comedy club or something.

When Stan was in Calgary in April, I had a similar dilemma. I had FF, Avengers, Thor, Spider-Man early (or first) issues, but what to choose? I had him sign Origins of Marvel Comics.

I met Stan at a comic con in New Orleans five years ago. I would have probably had him sign the Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus Volume 1 except for the inconvenience carrying around that heavy book all day would have caused. I ended up having him sign a picture of himself, since pictures were readily available from several vendors at the con.

Carrying around omnibus editions didn't stop me, lol. I had Stan sign my Amazing Spider-Man by Stan Lee & Steve Ditko omnibus and another year, I had Claremont sign both my Uncanny X-Men vol. 1 omnibus and the Wolverine one. Of course, I should note that we drive down to the convention centre, so I get to stash my heavy stuff when needed.

Edited to add... Len Wein was there the same year as Claremont so I got him to sign both of those volumes as well.

I ordered a copy of The Soapbox Collection. So that's a contender for Stan Lee to sign.


I had Gene Simmons sign the cover of the Marvel Super Special. Just seemed like the right thing for a musician at a comic book convention to autograph....

Picture of a 230 pound 7-year old...

Well...since you asked!

Just posted a review on Facebook. Cut and pasted to the KISS thread under the Music category of this board.
