Stl Comics is about change again. We're hopefully moving into the future with features like Facebook, Twitter, and a new ebay store run by none other than St. Louis's own local show dealer, Eric Meyer. We also plan on the return of coverage of the local shows with the pictures everyone loved so much. We'll also be including news and pics of Eric's travels to other shows and cons that are out of town. If there are other things you'd like to see, please visit our forum and make a post and let us know about it.
I wouldn't have believed it, but indisputable evidence has appeared via the Stl Comics Forum. See for yourselves:
Big thanks go out to new forum member JasonV for posting this wonderful video. This will be the first changes we have made to our Whitman variant research in several years.
Yes, we're still here. The site has recently been getting some traffic again on the forum. Apparently there are more than four or five of us that still love variants and other comic book oddities. We've begun work on a new gallery, and a new forum member has also presented an article about foreign versions of American comics for us to publish that will hopefully be live soon.
We are also considering doing some coverage on the local comic shows again like we have in past years. If any of you are interested in reading that kind of stuff here again, please let us know!
The original Stl Comics Forum is now open for business again. Please stop by and say hello!
I suppose someone out there has said that. I'd like to think that some of you are still visiting though. I apologize for the lack of updates to both this and the Variant Mafia blog. Things have gotten both busy and problematic. We had an attack of some sort on our forum/message boards a little while back. We're still trying to claw our way back out of that mess. We're almost back on track, and should have a forum open again soon. In the meantime though, we hope you'll stick around to see of our variant research and other comic book galleries. We have a ton of great images available on this site that you just can't find anywhere else of some very rare comics. Here are some links to keep you busy until we can get our forum going again:The Marvel/Atlas Super-Hero Revival of the Mid-1950’sSo Much Fun, Inc. Reprint Editions
Please check out the big update we've just finished on our new forum!
It is time again. Y'all needs to get off your collective butts, pack up some books, and come join us at the Shrewsbury American Legion Hall (Post #111) for the last St. Louis Spector Club Comic Book Show for 2008. I'll be there this time, I promise. No sickness to speak of in the Jobe household this week, so I shouldn't be piloting the couch again this time. I hope to see you all there.
As always, if you need more information about the show, you can find it here...
Just in case you haven't looked around on our site, I'm here to make sure you get the most out of your visit. We opened a second site and blog recently that is dedicated solely to the Variant Mafia. There is some great news and sales information there for those of you hoping to land a rare variant for your collection. Please take the time to wander over there and have a look. Here is a link...
I didn't make it to the St. Louis Spector Club Comic Show about a week and a half ago. I was in bed with a nasty cold watching football. Actually, I think I slept through more football than I actually watched, but did not make it in to visit the rest of the local comic geeks nonetheless. I'm afraid that means that I also have no pics this time around, or even anything to say about it. If any of you out there who did attend would like to donate some pictures or have anything to say about the show, I'd be happy to post whatever you have.
With any luck, I'll avoid the sick people, and stay well enough to make it to the next show on November 23. Hope to see you there!
