Did you get your tickets for the New York Comic Con yet? Well I did! I can’t wait, ‘cuz NYCC is my favorite show on the East Coast. I have my list ready to go for a weekend of long-box diving. Good thing I just posted nice runs of Uncanny X-Men, Ultimate X-Men, Captain America Vol. 5, Detective Comics, and Daredevil Vol. 1 to help get your back issue list down to a manageable number for the con. With over 5,000 comics added today, I am sure you can find some things to cross off your list!
