BIG SURPRISE - Marvel was late for their presentation, so their comics are not the only thing late at Marvel. Maybe the folks at Marvel need new watches.
Anyway Jim Lee stepped in and sketched a beautiful Bat-Man sketch during the wait with the caption "I may be late with my books but at least I was on time for the Baltimore Dealer Summit". The sketch was auctioned off for the COMIC BOOK LEGAL DEFENSE FUND and brought $350.00
Marvel finally showed up and gave the following highlights:
October is ZOMBIE MONTH !! (special covers of Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Howard the Duck, Punisher, and more). The covers are awesome and we will be doing a huge HORROR THEME at the store in October.
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2008 - All New X-Men Story and Iron Man Adventures comic.
Spider-Man - One More Day Issue #3 is gonna be a Death of Captain America like issue. It is going to sell tons. After the ONE MORE DAY storyline look for Spider-Man - BRAND NEW DAY.
