We just got back from the Wizard Con and before I even get a chance to catch my breath, I have to pack up for The New York Comic Con, jeez. Good thing I left the back issues to our awesome web team! We added some great hard-to-find books today, including a nice run of Cable Deadpool, Alias, and some Walking Dead. Also in the upload, great X-family minis like Nightcrawler Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, Rogue Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, Cyclops, and Chamber. I’d also like to take this time to thank some of my fans who came and saw me last weekend. One of my favorite fans, Adam West, came by and said hi. No big deal. So if you’re in town this weekend and will be at the con, come say hey. Or just come to talk about stuff you want to sell. I’m always buying!!!!!!!!

Stay mint,
Alex Rae!
