I’ve been away for a while, two weeks to be exact, so I haven’t posted anything in that time. Now that I’m back, I’ll be posting regularly.
Anyhow, my trip back to my home country, Ireland….went really well, personal-wise and business-wise. Hopefully I’ll be able to reveal more details business-wise over the coming few months.
Anyhow…When I was back ‘home’ I picked up tons of swag…what you see in the pictures is a small representation of what I brought back to the US.
I brought over around 7 volumes of the Hardcover faithful reprints of the Original ‘Dan Dare’ strips.
A good few Hardback volumes of ‘Viz Comic’ …Hilarious non-pc stuff.
A few copies of the ‘Eagle’ comic from the 80’s relaunch. Yep…you can see the first issue in the pictures…it came with a free space spinner!
A few copies of some real old school war comics…'Battle.'
A few copies of one of my favorite IPC titles ‘Scream!’…you can see the first issue in the pic and that came with plastic ‘Fangs’.
Bought a couple of the 2000ad fanzine ‘Zarjaz’ (and other various 2000ad stuff) and the British comic fanzine ‘Crikey!’.
Got some ‘Dandy’ and ‘Beano’ stuff including a hardback reprint of the original 1939 Dandy Annual.
And as you can see…I gots me some cool Doctor Who toys! I love the good Doctor. I got a ‘Sonic Screwdriver’, a remote controlled ‘K-9’…two remote controlled Daleks…a Cyberman and the good Doctor himself!
And I got the missus…A ‘Jack Skellington with interchangeable heads’…she loves that movie!
Not a bad haul…I still got tons of stuff up in attic of my folks house. Maybe next time I’ll manage to bring most of it over to the US.
