I received a number of requests for a San Diego Comic Con 2009 report, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it. Some other commitments got in the way, so sorry, no pictures of myself and Sean Jr. on the Con floor this year! Hopefully next year will work out. To be honest, the lighter emphasis on comic books also didn’t help when I had to prioritize activities at the end of July.
Here are some eyewitness reports I’ve dug up for you to enjoy!
The June Heritage comic book auction did very well in spite of the current economic recession/depression. I was perusing some of the sales, and quite frankly they are pretty amazing. Look at these numbers:
Total sales for the auction were more than $3.69 million. The market for high end comic collectible comic books is still going strong!
With all the hoopla about the Cash for Clunkers program for getting old cars off the street, has anybody really addressed how to get old, worthless, clunker comic books off the street?
If you have a stack of worthless (or almost worthless) comic books, why not get some cold hard cash for them?
