Greenville Comic Book and Sports Card Show: May 22, 2010

Today I spent some time thumbing through long boxes of discounted comics at the Greenville Comic Book and Sports Card Show, which was held at the Clarion Inn and Suites, located at 50 Orchard Park Drive in Greenville, SC.; literally within walking distance of my domicile!

It's always great to have one of these one day weekend shows pop up unexpectedly. I had been unaware of it until just a couple of days ago and it proved to be a nice way to warm up for the massive Heroes Convention which will be held in two short weeks on June 4-6, 2010 in Charlotte, NC. I must admit that I dipped into the funds for that larger con at today's event.

Look at the bronze age treasures that I found for very reasonable, if not downright cheap prices. Classic issues of Amazing Spider-Man, Daredevil, Justice League of America, Ghost Rider #1 (a grail book for me), fill in issues to complete collections of Fantastic Four, Warlock, Supernatural Thrillers (a NM+ gem), Werewolf By Night, Marvel Team-Up Annual #1, Uncanny X-Men and a long run of Green Lantern from the mid-1980's by Len Wein & Dave Gibbons. Plus, the lovely 2004 Adam Hughes sketch book. Not a bad haul for a lazy Saturday!

I am both amazed and jealous at the Bronze Age Treasure Trove you stumbled into!

With such branding, was this foreshadowing Jordache jeans?
