Joel swore that he’d never go on the convention circuit, but I think he’s been finding that this, along with the Turky Day marathon is truly some of the best promotion he can get for the newer MST3K releases. He’s one of the ultimate horror hosts, so I was really stoked to meet him and get this!
While film novilizations may arguable not be so relevant anymore, I love this just because of the autograph! Foster did some of the best novilazations (back in the days when these things were ESSENTIAL reading) and his original work is always entertaining. This one was a Christmas gift, and I’m thrilled to have it.
Land has worked on just about everything, but this was one of my favorite JLA series, and his work here in particular is really great.
If you grew up in the 80’s and 90’s you probably heard music from Pebbles. If nothing else you heard her backup vocals to Paula Abdul’s “Forever Your Girl”. This was another great email request!
I see Tony pretty frequently on the convention scene actually, he’s the creator of Black Lightning and has done some of my favorite Star Trek stories. A couple years ago at the very first MonsterfestMania, he was promoting the release of his new Black Lightning collection and handing these out. My daughter excitedly came up and said “free autograph? I want one!”
While I like this picture, I’m really pleased to have his signature on one of my older BL issues, one featuring Superman!
I have a thing for trailer compilations – no matter how racy the cover may be. I actually didn’t even notice when I got this at the secondhand store, that scream queen Debbie Rochon had signed it.
With one autograph already in place, I wanted to make sure to have it on hand the next tiem I met Troma creator Lloyd Kauffman. He always has to deface things a bit and when Tiffany Shepis saw it she absolutely screamed, and didn’t have the heart to charge me for the autograph!
Gary Busey was one of the first people I started seeing at conventions with autograph pricing in the $40 range. That’s a definite pass for me, but much to my delight, I discovered he does sign through the mail! Now to get Charles Band on here….
This one was exciting because it was a mail request that came back quick when I really didn’t know if it was going to come back at all! She’s one of the survivors of Freddy’s Dead – the last of the main string of Nightmare on Elm Street films!
When they collected all of Marc’s Franklin Richards strips into two volumes, He gave me a couple for my kids, and signed them to each of them. It’s been Maddie’s favorite forever, and the fact that she has one signed to her just makes it better. Lydia loves H.E.R.B.I.E. in these books so much, that she requested a costume of it! (We took a photo with Marc at Akron ComicCon…)
This is the kind of thing I bring, just to see the celebrity scream. Tiff was delighted to see this and actually brought out a couple posters from that shoot to show me – interesting to note, it’s a Japanese bike for the Americian covers, but when this book was released in Japan, they used Americian bikes!
Bob Hall wrote most of the run of my favorite Valiant title – that being Shadowman. When I met him at NEO Comic Con I was hoping for a Shadowman print to get signed. A Master Darque one was close enough!
(It’s okay X-O…. I still love you….)
You know, I have the utmost respect for Gould, and I recognize he has a lot of history behind him. The thing is…I haven’t actually SEEN most of his films. I’m familiar with him from the Oceans series, and from Friends and stuff like that – stuff t hat is cool because he has the gravitas from that long career that I know about but haven’t actually seen…..
Big thanks for a crazy quick response, I think he turned this around in about a week.
I found this graphic novel at half price books, signed by the archetect of the modern Marvel universe. In Cleveland we particuarly love him because he’s a hometown boy made good and this book in particular is fun – maybe we’ll explore that a little later….
Shame on you Mel! I was so thrilled to get something back…only to discover I didn’t get my original picture back and received instead this pre-print.I mean it’s a great picture, but it’s still not the same as a real autograph, and not worth me wasting my postage.
I’m kind of slowly building a Freddy Kruger victim collection. Not sure if I’ll ever complete it but it’s fun idea I think. Jennifer was one of the more memorable victims in part three – bad and beautiful.
