Comic Haul 6/8 - Superman Celebration 2019

Last year this went up late, too. Not as late as this one. This one is going up over a month late because work has been especially awful lately and I haven't been motivated to do much of anything except lay on the couch and watch YouTube videos.

Comic Haul 4/6 - Southern Illinois Comic Con

On Saturday, April 6th I attended the first comic convention of the year. Normally the Cape Comic Con is the first one for me, but this year there was a new one that had never been held before. It was in the small town of Benton, IL, and while it's not going to go down in history as the best comic convention I have ever been to, it was okay. Especially for the first year.

Instead, what you'll find are some deep cuts and surprising jams from games you've potentially never even played before.
