dscf2315.gif Yesterday morning I headed up the road to the Iowa City Comic book show hosted by these guys They put on nice one day dealer room shows all across the midwest. I had stopped by one in Davenport, IA before but had never made it to one of these right up the road before. The room probably had about eight dealers total but they all brought lots of product. The middle row was where all the collectors crowded around fighting for the best comics. I stayed mostly near the few dealers selling half off trades as my collecting phase is pretty much dead and I just like to read the stories now. I felt the impulse too dig through the boxes but thankfully I had other things on my to do list for the day. I ended up getting a Hellboy short story collection for five bucks so thats a very good thing. These shows are a nice place for the comic collector or even people who want to try out the hobby for little to no money. Admission was free, all the dealers are pleasant and you never know what you may find. you can check there calendar on the above website to find out when one of these shows is in your neighborhood.
