RASL

December 12, 2010

“Bone” creator Jeff Smith brings his latest character to life.  The series follows the art thief RASL, who jumps to parallel universes in attempts to steal parallel paintings, but soon runs into dangerous scenarios as he is pursued by the government.

All this sounds typical, but Smith puts in Tesla, Edison in a historical context.

I found it fascinating and fun to read.

 

#1 TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES

December 8, 2010

You saw the movie.

You wore the costumes.

Now you want to find that elusive first issue.

It is one of the toughest Bronze age comics.

3000 copies in the first printing.

NM is five figures or so they say.

VF is over $2000.

If second printing. It goes for $10.

I would buy only certified.

Any forger is able to make a first issue.
