COMIC BOOK MEN S03E03: SUPER FRIENDS (27 Oct 2013)
AMC

During Jekyll Comic Con 2016 this past December, we got a chance to sit down with Mike Zapcic and Ming Chen of AMC’s hit show Comic Book Men – the reality TV show based on the lives, careers, and often offbeat personalities of the staff of the Kevin Smith owned comic book store Jay & Silent Bob’s Secret Stash in Red Bank, NJ.

(excerpt)

NN: You guys see a lot of celebrities come into your store on the show. Who do you think was the coolest one you’ve got to meet thus far?

Both: (emphatically) “Stan Lee”

Chen: (laughs) “You mean other than Stan Lee, right?”

NN: Well, yes, other than Stan Lee, of course.

Chen: “Take Stan Lee off the table, and I think anyone from the old Star Wars universe, Billy Dee Williams or Peter Mayhew most notably. Like, if you told me when I was a kid that Chewbacca would come in or I’d be sitting there playing cards with Lando, I wouldn’t believe you.”

Zapcic: “Elvira coming in this season was really cool. But Overall, I think getting to meet George Perez was probably the best thing for me.”

Marvel 4 Pack for $4 at Five Below

TRUE BELIEVERS: INFINITY GAUNTLET (22 Apr 2015)
Marvel Comics
My current favorite store, Five Below (everything for $5 or less), is currently selling comic books: Marvel 4 Pack for $4.  

I actually did not see any True Believers: Infinity Gauntlet, but I would think the distributor would include the book (as I found a few various True Believers comics in both of the packs I bought).  I think this is a good deal and will be back at the store to buy a few more (perhaps visit a different location to see if they have different stock).

NOTE: The digital codes are all expired and will not redeem.

My #custom 6" classic 80s #Troia from the design of #GeorgePerez , for the #DCUniverse #actionfigure line. .
Used Raven as base figure. I cut off her hood, cape and skirt, then sculpted over a new hair and separate pieces of her armors. Then painted accordingly using acrylic paints and sprays.

DC Comics Presents 1981 pin-up by George Perez

DC COMICS PRESENTS #38 (Oct 1981)
DC Comics
Please note that Aquaman is erroneously missing from the DC Comics Presents 1981 pin-up by George Perez, according to aquamanshrine.net.  Aquaman was a guest-star on issue #5. Rob speculates, "Somehow, Arthur was either forgotten by Perez when he was roughing out the sketch, or he was left off a list presumably sent to him by DC (by editor Julius Schwartz?). And yet no one forgot Man-Bat or Hoppy The Marvel Bunny. Geez."

Below is the original art, courtesy of thebristolboard.tumblr.com.


Update: Aquaman is probably hanging out with Red Tornado, who appeared on DCP#7.  Also note that the Starman costume that appears on the cover of DCP#36 is a blue costume.  The one seen in the pinup is a red costume.

Google Play $5 Off Promo

INFINITY GAUNTLET (Digital) (13 Oct 2011)
Marvel Comics
Google Play is currently running a free $5 credit for first time buyers promotion... so applying that to any collected comic book and it's a good deal.  For example, the Infinity Gauntlet book will be $3.79 (plus taxes, if applicable).  This is a good deal if you have an Android tablet and looking to add some books in your collection.

Personally speaking, although this is a good price, I actually already own this on Comixology, as well as in print (the original monthlies and the collected hardcover).. so I'm not going to re-buy it on another format.
