More Mignola Madness!

This post encompasses 7 days of events, but due to work, I'm just now getting around to this post.

On Monday, I wrapped up the day at work and made the roughly 3 hour drive to Baton Rogue, LA. A few months back, one of my best college friends, Val, offered to buy the tickets to the Shinedown/Three Days Grace/P.O.D. concert that was scheduled there. I said "Hell, yes." (after clearing it with the wife), and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Great concert, full of energy, just plain awesome.

My departure the next day was a little delayed (it was a rock concert, afterall), but I eventually made it to my college town of Hattiesburg, MS. where I met up with my buddy Drew. Drew works at one of a chain of stores that sell sports cards and memorabilia. We swung by his place of work where I was very tempted by some 2012 Gypsy Queen, but I was strong-willed e3nough to not sell the rest of my spare Magic cards to buy a box. (That and I have a spot in the Dimwit's break, hehe...).

One of my main hopes while I was in town was to swing by the antique malls and see if they had any vintage or anything else I'd be interested in. I had no such luck, and I was beginning to think about those boxes of Gypsy Queen again...
Then, I went by my pal Justin's comic book store. After spending a few minutes catching up on life, and the store's rearrangement (it's been almost 2.5 years since I've been), it was time to dig through some boxes.
Here are my finds, and additions to my Mignola collection:

*I realize my other post indicated I had all 4 of this set. I only have two. My bad y'all!

 *I love Hellboy cross-overs. This one feature some talking, paranormal-investigating animals. 
Oh, and a necromancer. Can't go wrong with that!

*Mignola often collaborates with Corben, and the results never disappoint. 
This issue features tales of a possessed, man-eating house, and what happens when you try to summon the aid of Horus in a temple of Sobek. Yay, mythology!

On a side note, I probably won't be posting much over the next few weeks. Aside from a spot in the Dimwit's case break, I don't see myself making any note worthy purchases for a bit. I'll be spending the time commenting on what the rest of you have to say and preparing some future posts. 

Thanks for stopping by!
Staying unabashed and interested, 


  1. I saw that Batman comic at the flea market today, but didn't pick it up. Nice additions to your Mignola collection. Good luck in Dimwit's case break.

  2. Thanks Fuji! It's my first case break, so I'm pretty nervous/excited, haha.
    I'm working on the photobucket now. I haven't seen some of these in a while, so there's some reminiscing going on...
