Yesterday I went to Roanoke Valley Comic Con with my school's comic book club. Allow me to tell you a little bit about my experience.
The "convention" was not exactly what I was expecting. At all. It was not exactly similar to previous Comic Cons I have been to. Firstly, I was not expecting to shell out over $30 in comic books. I knew that I should not have spent that much money on comics at that time, but I did it. Secondly, I was expecting... a little bit more than just a room full of local comic book vendors. Because that is ALL it was. It was simply a bunch of comic stores bringing their entire collection into a tiny room, and people buying. In all truthfulness, I really had nothing better to do than just spend money.
But, overall, I enjoyed my time there. It has been a while since I have been in that type of environment. I totally miss it!
So let us look at what I got! ;) I apologize for the glare and poor quality. Taking pictures on my webcam sucks. :|
DEADPOOL, MY LOVE. A collection of some classic Deadpool. I just HAD to have something Deadpool. He is, after all, my favorite EVER!
Dazzler and Spider-Man & Kitty Pryde and Wolverine!
Haha, so I'm biiig on the mash-ups/crossovers of characters. I love collecting them! I am also big on female superheroes, there are so many that I love! Dazzler and Kitty Pryde are two of my favorites.
Batman and Spider-Man?! Whaaat? Yeah, it looked interesting to me so I bought it haha. Also, the famous issue where Peter Parker marries Mary Jane! Ahhh I love it!
Origin of Captain America, this is a reprint :( But I still really wanted this issue.
THIS is probably my favorite thing that I bought. I LOVED GWEN FREAKING STACY. I managed to get this price lowered by a lot! I was sooo excited when I saw it! Ahh!
Well that was my trippp! I know, I'm a geek. Geek geek geeeeeeek. I loveee it!
Also, I am really hoping on attending San Diego Comic-Con this year. Yes, it may be happening. FINALLY, I WILL GET TO BE AT THE COMIC-CON.
