Dallas Comic-Con came and went. I was able to get in early and pretty much bought the bulk of books I’ve been searching for right away. Some old issues of Daredevil, Uncanny X-Men and Wolverine that were missing in my collection. Oh and the death of Robin that’s been really hard to get a hold of.
I had saved up my pennies to make one big item purchase this year! I was on the hunt for single digit issues of Uncanny X-Men to take with me this year! I had my eye on a issue 7 with the second appearance of the Blob and first appearance of Cerebro. It was going for $160 which was abit over my limit so I asked if the vendor could bring the price down abit. Unfortunately since I was paying with a card he said he could not negotiate price…I was pretty bummed. I kept searching but didn’t find any other old X-Men books that I could afford from other vendors.
Towards the end of the day I ran into Arris Quinones host of the show Variant that’s all about comics! I watch his show pretty regularly on Revision3’s YouTube channel. Very informative and super nerdy. Just what I need. So he was nice enough to chit-chat with me at the Con. None of my friends are as nerdy as I am so I rarely get to geek out. Especially over comics. So thank you very much Arris for talking with me. He also did a quick interview with me. I was horrible. Not used to being on the other end of the camera. He was nice enough to put me in his episode of Dallas Comic-Con, check it out below from Revision3. Thanks Arris! I’ll be watching the show!
Fun times! Variant is a great show and Arris does a great job hosting. I hope he has great success with it and that the show can continue to grow. Here are some pictures that I took at the show.
I’ve been a designer for 15 years. I love creating & sharing. So, I’m hoping this site is a place to help me do both. I do freelance work as well. If you’re interested in what I can do, please take a look at my portfolio.
I started out years ago in print and have now designed in several mediums; including interactive experiences, as well as video and motion graphics.
