* Johnny Ryan is selling some cool-looking original art here.

* I will never be so old and jaded that I don't appreciate a nice little graphic novels section at a bookstore. Okay, I'm already that old and jaded, but I shouldn't be. There's a time in my life when I would have flipped out over the worst comic book shop, and there are other times that I would have fainted at the site and what every other Borders offers up comics-wide, and I probably shouldn't all the way forget that.

* never see a lot of comics industry related photos from about 1970-1985, for some reason.

* Clay Fernald talks to Jim Ottaviani and Maris Wicks. Robin McConnell talks to Sam Alden. Alex Dueben talks to Joe Sinnott.

* Mike Deodato Jr. draws Shang-Chi. I always liked that Bruce Lee was a character in the Marvel Universe.

* finally, that's a lot of money for a comic book, even (especially?) for one sealed in plastic.
