Comic Haul 2/4
It's a new comic haul, so get ready to see what comics I've picked up recently.
This is actually about three weeks worth of books. I also accidentally worked one of those three weeks worth of books back into my collection before taking pictures of them, so I honestly have no idea what that consisted of. Rather than go digging through a bunch of boxes hoping to find them, I figured at the end of the day it didn't matter all that much and that this is enough content for the post.
There's something about the coloring on his art that you can pick out immediately. It has almost a soft colored pencil look to it that's very striking.
The first comic here is an oddity. I ordered this online at My Comic Shop. It didn't make any notation on the site that it was signed by Adam Hughes and Caesar, so I was definitely surprised when I pulled it out of the box and saw the signatures. As I was looking at it, I thought it was too bad it didn't come with a certificate of authenticity. About that time the certificate fell out of the comic and onto my lap. Pretty good buy for $3.30.
The art is really good in these and I think the covers are all really well done. There are actually several different covers for each issue, so it was kind of fun to pick which ones I wanted the most from the bunch.
The second one here, Ghost, is one of those characters I was aware of back in the day but didn't know anything about. I still don't know anything about her, I guess. I know that her first appearance isn't worth anything.
The other comics here are just ones I liked that had her on the cover. The first one on the bottom row is an issue from the comic adaptation for the Street Fighter anime, which was wildly popular at one time. The second is a Rob Porter cover from the Street Fighter Unlimited annual where joke character Dan is making a scene. Then finally, the one on the bottom right is a Street Fighter vs G.I. Joe comic I didn't even know existed at all that has Chun-Li facing off against one of my favorite Cobra characters The Baroness. Couldn't go wrong with that one.
Never throw your things away, kids.
I believe, though I can't confirm it until I acquire more of these magazines, that this magazine was the first time I ever saw the toy line Monster in My Pocket. I'm pretty sure there was an ad for them in one of the issues and that's what sent me down the tiny rubber monster path.
And that will do for this comic haul. Like I said in the beginning, there were more things that I bought but I accidentally didn't get pics of them before putting them away. This should have been enough to browse through, though. Until next time.
