Mighty Con was held here in New Orleans this weekend. Jim Shooter was here and I got him to sign the Alpha and Omega and 2d Death TPBs. I had the Dark Horse Magnus series he wrote and a GI Joe issue when he was the EIC at Marvel signed as well. Very friendly, and got a story about the NAM comic getting started at Marvel. He had a Valiant Magnus foldout and Valiant Solar ad I had not seen before, so it was neat to see some V1 advertisements

I finally got to hold a Bloodshot 0 Platinum. Geek Inc has a CBCS 9.4 of the issue and it was on sale. From a distance I saw it, but said to myself, that can't be what I think it is. As I got closer I saw the price tag, $220, and said that can't be right...sure enough there was an extra 0 (boo!). I picked it up and looked it over, wow! Found out that Geeks Inc, picked up the issue for $5 in Indiana. If anyone is interested in a CBCS 9.4 for $2200, then Geek Inc has one. They also had some nice raw, EW 0 Flat/Embossed gold issues and A&A 0 Golds as well.

I did strike well in the 50 cents bin, pulling a V2 Shadowman 17/18 and some other V2 issues. I hope this convention comes back next year.

That sounds like a good con. Every time I have seen Shooter at a convention he is telling stories the entire time he signs, and there are usually a few guys who bring him grocery bags full of comics to sign. He doesn't bat an eye, just starts signing and keeps telling stories.

The first known copy was discovered in Indiana, too. It's not clear how these got sent out, but Sparta, Illinois, is somewhat nearby. Pretty much everything printed was printed in Sparta.

Maybe I'll have to start diving in bins in both of those states to find one. What's the count on these now? Five confirmed issues?

About 25 confirmed copies of Bloodshot 0 Platinum.
