Stan Lee. Rose City Comicon. PHOTOS are UP! 9/10/2016



You may ZOOM IN on any photos as I am hosting them on my site, www.kaptainmyke.com. (shameless plug) I went to Rose City Comicon in Portland, Oregon just for the day on Saturday, 9/10/2016…

I purchased a Stan Lee VIP Package and a 2-Day Ticket.  I also purchased 10 Stan Lee Autograph Tickets as well. I drove for 3 hours from Seattle at 5am and got  there by 8am. What started off fine became sketchy at 10a when VIP holders like  myself lined up and nobody who worked for the con knew where to go or what to do.

I received my VIP package and this is what was inside:






Have to be stamps. That 93 yr old man did NOT sign that perfect signature imo. Or the table full of 2016 collectibles ammassing 500 items signed by him, such as POP Funko figures, posters, prints, and the like.  Not when you down below further.

Also in the package was these 2 exclusive Stan Lee Collectibles variants:




Limited copies each worldwide?

I have no idea as of yet.

Regarding the autograph tickets.  The scanners would not work either. I was told my 10 autograph tickets would be scanned by Stan’s handlers. I get to the front of the line. They tell me and the others we have to go back and get the printed out autograph tickets by the counter where the VIP packages are. (Where we WERE)

We walk back there to the VIP table. The scanner isn’t working. Says the tickets are all already scanned.

It’s now 11am.

Stan Lee has to leave and go do the photo op at 11am. Bye! Come back at 1:30 after Stan has lunch. SMH  I even got into a minor altercation with a stranger who wanted to butt into a conversation I was having with an event staff “henchman”.  I squashed it and moved on.

 

I went to hunt down Stan Sakai. I didn’t have a map or a program.  Nobody game me one when I passed 3 doorways. I found him finally. He signed my mint on card Peter Laird signed Space Usagi Yojimbo action figures and original release figures, a set of 2 of them! 4 total! And he signed all his Ninja Turtle appearances in any of the comics (4 total) and Groo the Wanderer that was also signed by Sergio Aregonnes. Stan did pencils or inks I think if I remember correctly. It was a pleasure to meet him. CONFIRMED: Stan Sakai himself told me Usagi Yojimbo is coming back to the new TMNT cartoon and the new TMNT toy line. Just as I said!

He we go:

Stan Sakai signed comics:

I linger around 12:30 and ask a lady to scan my autograph tickets at the VIP table.

They. all. work.

It’s now 1pm. I cut in front of everyone and say, “It’s okay. I know what I’m doing.”

I get my books signed. I ask the handler (who looks A LOT Like ROMITA SR LOL) to be extra careful with my 1963 original FIRST PRINTING Amazing Spider-man #1.  Both covers completely detached from one another and the book.  There is one piece loose from the upper left corner of back cover but it’s all there.  He asks where I’d like it signed. I tell him, “In the middle”. He leans over and gets in Stan’s face and shows him directly within inches where to sign the very precious and very fragile book. He signs it just fine. I sigh a major relief. This book is like glass.

The next 10 are in a pile.

Starting with New Mutants #1 est. 9.4 with a very vain Rob Liefeld’s signature in the center (lol).  Stan smears his signature with his sleeve when he lifts the book and hands it off.  (Sigh)






 

Next? Amazing Spider-man #300. THE 300. He signs it at a weird janky 45 slant starting 90 degrees then it’s like they turned the book for him in mid sign or something. It’s not bad. But it looks…odd.

 

Then I had him sign 2012 The Defenders #1 Volume 4. Terry and Rachel Dodson signed it, and Matt Fraction (while Stan was off doing photo ops). He signed it a little crooked and janky but it’s there.  The “S” looks weird though.  I sighed a little relief on that one. There you go! 4 signatures!


Then I proceeded to put my books away as others are getting signed and passed off. Amazing Spider-man #129 1st Punisher, signed by Stan Lee and Gerry Conway


Amazing Spider-man #122 Death of Green Goblin , signed by Stan Lee and Gerry Conway

and Amazing Spider-man #121 Death of Gwen Stacy , signed by Stan Lee and Gerry Conway

 

 

Again, he signed them okay but the signatures are… janky. The rest of the books he signed okay but they are just…off.

 

1966 Amazing Spider-man #1 Golden Record Reprint WITH record, VF


1966 Amazing Spider-man #1 Golden Record Reprint WITHOUT record, FN


1979 Marvel Premiere 47 1st and origin of ANTMAN now signed by Stan Lee.



a better closeup:


1981 Avengers Annual #10 First ROGUE, First Madelyne Pryor. Signed by Gerry Conway inside front page, and now Stan Lee on the cover:




Honestly, If I wasn’t there in person I’m not so sure I’d be able to verify them. Reminds me of other posts on this very forum as I’m sipping coffee in the morning
I was like, “nah, I’m not so sure that’s a real Stan Lee, brah”. Now I get it. To whoever that was: Yep, it probably was his signature.  I told Stan Lee it was “a pleasure to meet him again” and his handler leaned over to him and spoken in his ear what I just said to him.   He really did look frail.  Poor Stan.

 

It’s now about 2pm – 2:30pm.

Next I met Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner. This was my first time meeting both of those 2. That was a pleasure and they double
signed my Gamestop Exclusive Harley Quinn #29 comic. Jimmy Palmiotti in gold, and Amanda Conner in Red:

 

She signed her Before Watchmen books for me too.

 

2012 DC Comics Before Watchmen Silk Spectre #1 Variant signed by Amanda Conner


2012 DC Comics Before Watchmen Silk Spectre #1 signed by Amanda Conner


2012 DC Comics Before Watchmen Silk Spectre #2 signed by Amanda Conner



2012 DC Comics Before Watchmen Silk Spectre #3 signed by Amanda Conner

 

 

 

2012 DC Comics Before Watchmen Silk Spectre #4 signed by Amanda Conner


I bought a 2016 IDW TMNT Batman Art Germ variant



and 2 blank sketch cover 2016 Image Comics Walking Dead #100.


I am going to do my own versions of zombie Ninja Turtle core character themed sketches on the covers of these 2 2016 Image Comics Walking Dead #100 blank sketch editions…

 

 

I bought some SWEET and very rare apparently FRENCH bootleg Ninja Fighter Turtles



and a loose Lee Falk Phantom action figure too! I can’t find him anywhere online or ebay because of the unpainted shorts




 

 

I’m super tired driving straight back home from Portland back to Seattle same day.  I had fun but never Stan Lee again. Ever. Probably a bad idea I went against those  who warned me and I didn’t take the advice about Stan Lee signing your books.  You should take the advice. I’m actually worried that CBCS won’t verify my signatures.  What will they do with the partially smeared Stan Lee signature? I’m sure that  effects grade but then you start splitting hairs on whether or not an autograph  vandalizes or degrades a comic book, right? Only time will tell after I receive  them back with red labels. In the meantime all the books have or will be sent  off to CBCS.

 

I enjoyed meeting Stan Sakai and Amanda Conner x100 times more. I  think I’m just going to go back to my turtles now.  Rose City Comicon henchmen
and other staff need to step up their game with VIP customers.  I had a great  time and I’m not bitter I promise!  Stan just looks frail and I know he loves
doing the conventions but we all must know when it’s time to end it on a high note.

That is all for now!

IDW TMNT Universe #1 Sketch Cover of KRANG

2016 IDW TMNT UNIVERSE #1 Full Page Color Sketch Cover Variant of KRANG by Michael Frederik Sorensen. Done with black sharpie and oil pastel crayons. Sprayed with Clear Seal.

2016 IDW TMNT UNIVERSE #1 Full Page Color Sketch Cover Variant of KRANG by Michael Frederik Sorensen. Done with black sharpie and oil pastel crayons. Sprayed with Clear Seal.

Today in the mail I received my blank sketch cover of 2016 IDW TMNT Universe #1. I was inspired and decided to sketch a close up of Krang’s face. One thing led to another and here you go. I used a black sharpie and some oil pastel crayons. I then sprayed it with a clear sealant. What do you think? I might sell it on ebay if anybody is interested.

Before submitting the final cover art to CBCS for grading and encapsulation, I went back over it with more inking and sharpie.  I then added a tone of green and purple light sources from both sides of Krang’s face.  The comic book was submitted for a yellow label graded book at CBCS in Clearwater, FL in late September.  I should get the book back by early January 2017.  Which do you like more?  Here is the final submitted book:

1991 Giant BEBOP and Giant ROCKSTEADY are united at last

I know some of you have been following my struggles to find solid giant ninja turtles and the elusive giant bebop and giant rocksteady. I have been burned twice by ebay sellers and once locally for Rocksteady. This toy is just damn rare. Heereeee we go!

I have received the 4 Giant Turtles and both Giant Bad Boys today. I have acrylic cases being shipped for the 4 green guys so I’ll wait to post photos of those. I will post however, Giant Bebop and Giant Rocksteady, along with some other toys I got in with acrylic cases made…CGA is the same company who encapsulates toys for AFA Grading Services.

I’m about to unleash something to the world FEW have seen. I am excited to share it here with you all, whom I consider colleagues of elite collectibles and highly sought after gems. Sometimes historical pieces are what get me really excited. Most Time Capsules sold at auction by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle co-creator  Kevin Eastman go anywhere from $300-$500 tyically.

OKAY, so now here’s where it gets REALLLLLY interesting. I mentioned via ebay to Fiona his office assistant that I bought on presale order Heavy Metal #281 which is Kevin Eastman’s first solor cover on his own magazine. I told her I wanted a signed copy but there wasn’t one offered. She said Kevin told her to put one in the capsule via ebay messages. Well, to my astonishment, here’s what I ACTUALLY got:

I didn’t get the magazine. Instead, holy schnikes, I got a 2016 Heavy Metal #281 Color 8 1/4″ x 11 3/4″ ARTIST’S PROOF signed by KEVIN EASTMAN and his wife, COURTNEY EASTMAN! SUPER MEGA TURBO RARE! (Kevin Eastman’s first solo cover of his own magazine) Courtney is the model by which April O’ Neil was conceived and now the model on the cover of this magazine! (By the way, google her, she is extremely beautiful)
