Fill some gaps in your comic collection when the Comic Book Connection hits town this weekend


  • Sam Howzit
Can we just stop pretending that liking comics is in any way nerdy or uncool? Movies based on comic book characters dominate box office receipts every year. A picture of Jared Leto as the Joker did a better job at breaking the Internet than Kim Kardashian’s champagne-covered ass. There is nothing unpopular about comics – except for the actual collecting of comics, it seems. But if you’re not afraid of that last stigma about being a comics fan, bring your excess cash to the Comic Book Connection to find rare back issues, collectible toys and more. Grab a handful of issues priced at 50 cents, or go for the gold and try to snag that copy of The Amazing Spider-Man No. 42 that you’ve had your eye on for a while.
