Toylanta was this weekend—it’s a big annual toy convention held in Atlanta over a weekend. It started as a hub for GI Joe collectors but expanded to include vintage toys across the board. I have friends that attend, friends who are vendors, and friends who attend with me, so it was an all-around fab time Saturday! Here are some highlights:
Dear Readers, if you follow this blog, my apologies for vanishing for a week.
My siblings and stepsiblings and I just moved our parents out of their house to a smaller one. Six months of packing and clearing out a very large house with a HUGE dusty basement was done in a week. My stepdad had some sort of typhoid/ pneumonia hybrid cold that he gave us as well, and it has knocked me on my ASS. I haven’t sat at my desk all week.
On the bright side, I have gotten to catch up on reading these great old horror comics from the 70s that my brother gave me after we did a bit of clearing out last month.
Minerva seems to be enjoying the Swamp Thing issue.
Wow, this is a doozy! As my two brothers and I plowed through boxes of our old stuff at our mother’s house, a big pile of comic books came to light. They were all spooky,scary, mystical titles that I remember sneaking into my brothers’ closet and trying to read. I didn’t understand much but I loved it. My brothers gave me the books, and at last I can read them at leisure. I’ll post the pics, and feel free to review any you might might have read. Here goes!
