With a little help from my friends

Post by magnusr »

The extreme amount of things I received this summer is a good push to start my gallery. Especially as most of it were surprises sent to me out of the goodness of my friends here. Thank you very, very much.

In this gallery I will try to show new additions to my collection and later on maybe I'll dig up some older things as well.

Good week collectionwise, which was needed. One odd old item from ebay, but mainly me getting help to acquire items I could not get myself. Big thanks to Ken for helping me and many others, and I also had a favor from a friend of a friend passed on to me, so the friends part of my thread title works on several levels this time. Look for the dedication below.

Catching up.

In London I also got some nice signed and dedicated prints for the kids. A Hulk for my smallest who likes the Hulk, a US themed one for my oldest kid who is from the US and a black and white with many characters for my middle child who likes to draw himself.
Image

Also got a ton of other signatures, here's some samples.
Image
Image
Image

More from LSCC, nice english comics from a dedicated publisher.
Image

An English comic from LSCC that also has some international Valiant fans respresented and a Swedish comic sold there.
Image

Speaking of Swedish comics, here's two Swedes that's been published in the US.
Image

Also I have gotten many great Valiant items since last. Many thanks to my friends.

Finally got some previews so I can check VEI's solicitations.

This month there's been so much stuff (some shown in other threads). Thanks to Fletch and Mike (and my wife) for bringing me to the LSCC, to Joe for classic pre-Valiant items, to Elery and Bruce (and VEI) for a great prize after a great contest and to Dan and John for dealer pointers!
