"Get your favorite comics bound professionally" Update

A while ago I put up a post about getting your favorite runs of comics professionally bound into handy-dandy softcover (or hardcover) books. Long-time comic fan Jeff Bonham sent me some neat pictures which I posted HERE. Recently Jeff stopped by the store and showed me these:




Let me tell you, this is some cool stuff! The volumes are solidly and professionally bound and look great on the shelf beside your other Showcase or Essential volumes. The only way you can tell these didn't come from a publisher is that there is no price anywhere on the books! It's amazing seeing them in person and holding them in your hands... they are that well done. I'm thinking about getting some of my more obscure stuff bound into nice bookshelf-friendly volumes.

20 Questions with a Comix Connection Counter Monkey, Installment #4


Here we go... another fun entry in our "Know Your Counter Monkeys" feature! Mechanicsburg staff takes center again with Mr. Matt Horne.

20 Questions for the Staff:

1) What's your name?
Matt Horne

2) Any nicknames, codenames, etc?
Mattsquatch, Hornedog... hard to keep track of them all and let's be honest, some I can't repeat here.

3) Store of Operations?
Mechanicsburg, the cultural mecca of Central PA

4) Favorite thing to do on a day off?
Take in a Senators game, read my new stack of graphic novels, crank the tunes, and watch an Al Pacino movie. Maybe all at the same time.

5) Any hidden talents or uncanny abilities?
I am getting to be a pretty good cook. Other than that, nothing that can be discussed in a family forum.

6) If you could live off only one food or beverage what would it be?
Shrimp with cocktail sauce

7) Favorite kind of Pop Tarts?
Frosted cinnamon

8) Favorite monster?
Dracula, King of the Vampires

9) Favorite fictional character?
The first and best superhero, the Man of Steel, Superman!!

10) Top five favorite video games?
John Madden Football, Star Wars Episode III, Spy Hunter, Superman Returns (yes, there is a game), and Pitfall.

11) Top five favorite bands?
Led Zeppelin, Motley Crue, Van Halen, Scorpions, and Black Label Society

12) Top five favorite television shows?
Smallville, Supernatural, Battlestar Galactica, NYPD Blue, and Seinfeld.

13) Top five favorite films?
Heat, JFK, Last of the Mohicans, Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut, and Airplane!

14) Top five books you read that were not in comic book form?
Crossfire: The Plot that Killed Kennedy, Eastwood by Richard Schickel, The Last Days of Krypton, Scarface: The Beginning, and The Shining by Stephen King

15) Top five favorite comic books?
Action Comics, Captain America, Green Lantern, Moon Knight, and JLA

16)What canceled or finished comic book series should be revived?
ROM: Spaceknight!!! I seek closure!!

17) When and how did you discover comic books?
A friend gave me a copy of Origins of Marvel Comics which reprinted all the first issues of Spider-man, FF, and The Hulk. The rest as they say... is history.

18) What appeals to you about comic books as an art form?
Comics is a great visual medium that I think is undersold in many circles. It can draw in kids (and even adults) who are reluctant to read. It can also act as a springboard to developing a more vivid imagination which certainly helps when graduating to reading novels. Another great thing about comics is the world around us. Really hard to find heroes in the world today so what's the harm in turning to fictional ones?

19) Earliest memory of Comix Connection?
Wow, this place is awesome!!! Who are those two spooky guys behind the counter? (turned out it was Bill and Gregg... lol)

20) Anything interesting we should know about you?
I was born in Union, SC, raised in Reading, PA, and am a die hard metalhead!! (much to Bill's chagrin).

That's all folks... our next post should cover one of the monkeys from York, so stay tuned!

This strip is a little bit of a filler. I haven't had a lot of time lately so sorry the quality isn't up to snuff. Anyway I hope to eventually be able to draw this myself as the capabilities of the beta program I'm using are slim. Hope you enjoy!

I'm not sure about that grade... what exactly is VERY FINE/NEAR MINT with (admittedly minor) RESTORATION? Seems to me that would put it in a "qualified VERY FINE", and at a substantially lower value. Notice also that the comic is graded by PGX, a newcomer to the "slabbed comics" field. HERE'S more info about them.

C'mon, one of you millionaires get me this for my next birthday! Pretty please?

(On a side note, did I mention that I got to see and nearly bid on a BATMAN #3, a BATMAN #5 and several other golden age gems last weekend at an auction in York County? Meh. All I walked away from that auction with was a lousy hotdog and a cup of Pepsi. So it goes.)

20 Questions with a Comix Connection Counter Monkey, Installment #3


Okay... it's that time again... another entry in the "Know Your Counter Monkeys 20 Question Survey"! This time we're back with the Q & A from one the Mechanicsburg guy, Shawn Skvarna.

20 Questions for the Staff:

1.)What's your name?
Shawn

2.)Any nicknames, codenames, etc?
Anything that Bill comes up with each time he sees me... "Shawn Shawn Shawn auf der Autobahn!"

3.)Store of Operations?
Mechanicsburg

4.)Favorite thing to do on a day off?
Spending time with my girlfriend, hang out with friends, read, draw, play guitar or Guitar Hero, check out some DVDs, sleep

5.)Any hidden talents or uncanny abilities?
Playing guitar (it's not like I can take it with me everywhere), drawing, writing...

6.)If you could live off only one food or beverage what would it be?
I could probably be happy with Subway subs, since I'm already surviving off of them

7.)Favorite kind of Pop Tarts?
Probably the strawberry kind. I don't really eat them too often.

8.)Favorite monster?
I love the old Universal monsters. Growing up I thought Dracula was the scariest.

9.)Favorite fictional character?
In novels I'm a huge fan of Harry Dresden from the Dresden Files series. In comics, I'm a fan of Superman, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Firestorm, Spider-Man, Daredevil and Colossus

10.)Top five favorite video games?
Spider-Man 2, Guitar Hero (any version), Justice League Heroes, and the Lego Star Wars games

11.)Top five favorite bands?
U2, The Beatles, Better Than Ezra, The Killers... beyond that I'm into songs more than bands

12.)Top five favorite television shows?
Doctor Who, Torchwood, Smallville, Supernatural, Chuck

13.)Top five favorite films?
Casablanca, Arsenic and Old Lace, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Hot Fuzz, The Rocketeer

14.)Top five books you read that were not in comic book form?
The Dresden Files books, at the moment I'm up to book 4 in the series soon to be on book 5

15.)Top five favorite comic books?
Green Lantern, The New Frontier, old school X-Men from the 80s, Y The Last Man, Superman: Birthright

16.)What cancelled or finished comic book series should be revived?
I'd love to see Ronnie Raymond Firestorm make a comeback somehow.

17.)When and how did you discover comic books?
When I was very young my parents used to get them for me at the 7 Eleven near our house in Baltimore. My mom loved comics growing up and it just carried over into me I suppose.

18.)What appeals to you about comic books as an art form?
The combination of compelling stories, characters that readers can either identify with or wish they could be, and various styles of art to help bring the story across. There's a little bit of something out there for everyone and it's also good to see that other genres can keep going in comics, such as Serenity, Buffy and others.

19.)Earliest memory of Comix Connection?
I remember one of their first locations in the Delco Plaza. When I moved up to PA in the late 80s my parents let me go and check it out and it blew my mind that there was an entire store that was full of comics to be bought. I was hooked from that moment.

20.)Anything interesting we should know about you?
Ummmm... I'm not sure because I don't think of me as interesting, but I will put in a mention for one of my all-time favorite single issues of any comic I've ever read: Action Comics #800. It's a retelling of the Superman story but going to overlooked moments in his history, like how the Kents decide to keep Clark or meeting the mentor that took Clark under his wing that led to his career as a reporter. There are little vignette stories sprinkled throughout of people's impressions of Superman or just their love of him as a character. That book says all I'd ever need to about Superman and I loved it.

And that's that! Another installment on it's way soon!

From the Vault - 20th Anniversary edition Part 18

Here's a couple of shots of the second Comix Connection, located in the Camp Hill Mall, Camp Hill, PA:


The Camp Hill Mall was pretty darn cool... lots of boutique-y stores owned by local businessmen to give it that different flavor. The mall management was very proactive and always seemed to have something planned, which kept foot traffic pretty steady.


That's Manager Ralph watching the cartoons we projected up on a screen that was glued to the high front wall... it was a great idea, but unfortunately there was a skylight directly out front of the store that tended to wash things out during bright daylight. Under the best conditions though, it was pretty awesome. You guys remember that?

(One thing that drove me nuts was hearing the 1940s Fleischer Superman cartoon's Clark Kent yelling for Lois Lane at the circus in one episode... "LOIS!... LOIS!... LOIS!" YARRRRRGGGHH!)

Cooke on Jonah Hex


That's right... in next week's new Previews catalog, check the DC Solicitations, because Darwyn Cooke is doing a special stint as penciller on Jonah Hex for issue #33. Cooke said recently he had an interest in doing a story with Hex, if he could take him to Canada, so it looks like he got his wish!

If you're a fan of Darwyn Cooke's stuff, let us know and we'll get you signed up for the issue. Miss out, and you'll feel worse than Hex on that cover up to his neck in a good ole Canadian winter. Take it from me... I've got a little experience with those winters, and you don't want that!

JONAH HEX #33
Written by Jimmy Palmiotti & Justin Gray
Art and cover by Darwyn Cooke
A special issue drawn by Eisner Award-winning artist Darwyn Cooke (DC: THE NEW FRONTIER, THE SPIRIT)! Jonah Hex travels to Canada on the trail of his latest bounty. But with the Mounties hot on his heels, this isn't going to be an easy job.

REPO MAN sequel!

Of sorts. As a fan of the movie REPO MAN, I'm seriously looking forward to this:


From the Amazon review:
1980s cult film Repo Man gets an official sequel - in graphic novel form... with a script by original writer/director Alex Cox. Cox explains: "After REPO MAN, I became interested in the idea of a sequel. Specifically - what had happened to Otto, during his ten-year absence from earth? And what would he make of the changes which had taken place in his absence? Otto, it would appear, has been held prisoner, in great luxury, on the planet Mars. Now he has returned to earth, and changed his name -- to Waldo." Waldo, recently returned from Mars, is forced to choose where his allegiance lies -- his boss, Duke Mantee, or the goddess, Velma; money or knowledge; the past or the future; Earth...or Mars?


Reserve your copy today, as they should be in stores soon! I know I want one.

You wanna roll those dice?


I ran across THIS STORY last week and it's been bumping around in my head ever since:

But Walter L. Wagner and Luis Sancho contend that scientists at the European Center for Nuclear Research, or CERN, have played down the chances that the collider could produce, among other horrors, a tiny black hole, which, they say, could eat the Earth. Or it could spit out something called a “strangelet” that would convert our planet to a shrunken dense dead lump of something called “strange matter.”

I wish we had a Superman to keep an eye on us in case things go south.

More on the Large Hadron Collider HERE!
