    Comic Buying Team traveling to Rose City Comic Con this weekend!

    Convention season is still in full swing and one of our comic buyers Eric Mowery is getting set to leave for Portland, Oregon and Rose City Comic Con! Let’s check in with Mr. Mowery and see how his preparations are going!
    Hello, Comicdom. I知 getting ready to head off to Portland for the Rose City Comic Con (stop by booth 628 and say HI!) and for a week of comic book buying, but I wanted to take a quick second to give a shout-out to my old friend, The Collector.
    And, no. I知 not referring to Benicio Del Toro痴 character in the Marvel cinematic universe. I知 referring to you. Yes, YOU! The Collector, the one who allows me to keep this job. When you come up to the booth that I知 working at, buy something from me, and I tell you, 典hank you I mean exactly that. My cool job does not exist without you.
    There痴 been a lot of buzz lately about the ever-expanding market and what it means for collectors. I hear it at almost every single show that I attend. 展e池e all going to get priced out! And, honestly, it痴 sometimes hard to argue with that sentiment. Certain books have been booming lately (Hulk 181, you know I知 talking about you) and while I could write my dissertation about this market, 90s parallels, and Collector Vs Investor; I am not here to debate. I just want to offer up two, teensy-weensy pieces of adviceor insightor what-have-you.
    Now is the time to buy up your old favorites and find new ones. Yes, I know. That FF 48 looks pretty appealing right now and if you can afford it, pick it up! But, if not, don稚 get frustrated. There are millions of other books out there that just haven稚 received their due yet. I love, love, love Will Eisner stories and his art is amazing, but his comics are still relatively affordable. They池e all undervalued. ALL. UNDERVALUED. So while everyone is going Superhero crazy, you can pick up books that fall outside of the current movie market for a really good price.
    Most 適ey issues stories, are not that great. Characters are introduced by a two or three individuals working on one book, but they get constantly retooled by different creative teams. Deadpool started off as a villain who was just, well, a villain. It took Nicieza (after he co-created), Madureira, Waid, Churchill, Kelley, and McGuinness, among others, to make him the character that you all love so much today. Those arcs may not have the appeal of a true 1st appearance, but the stories are infinitely better.
    Well, I知 packed and on my way to Portland so stay tuned for all the cool finds I bring back, and, as always, make mine Ma蓉uhhh遥be I need to think of a better sign off?
    Best, Eric
