comicbookfrenzy @norsemgr tagged me to do the top 5 of #holygrails in #COMICBOOKS! Mine may not be the most hard to get comics in history. Most of you may have these already. But these are the ones I grew up on and are hard to get here in the #Netherlands and are the ones missing in my collection.

#IRONFIST 14 1977 FIRST #SABRETOOTH #chrisclaremont #JohnByrne

#THENEWTEENTITANS 2 1980 FIRST #deathstroketheterminator #MARVWOLFMAN #GEORGEPEREZ

#BATMAN 428 #DEATHINTHEFAMILY #MARVWOLFMAN #JIMAPARO 1988

#SECRETWARS 8 FIRST SYMBIOTE #JIMSHOOTER #MIKEZECK 1984

#THEUNCANNYXMEN 142 1980 #daysoffuturepast #JohnByrne #chrisclaremont for the obvious reason

comicsetmerveilles Acquisition librairie : Doomsday.1. Impossible de faire l'impasse. L'avenir de Byrne en France est en jeu :) A noter que je l'ai trouvé au fin fond du rayonnage alors que toutes les autres nouveautés sont "surexposées". Mauvais signe...#comics #idw #paninicomics #doomsday #johnbyrne 1h

Mt. Rushmore Of Comic Book Artists - Part 2
http://jmwetheringtonsr.com/2015/08/31/mt-rushmore-of-comic-book-artists-part-2/

Someone raised the question of who I would choose to be on my Mt. Rushmore of comic book artists. That is, which four comic book artists did I feel should inhabit the hallowed designation of being worthy of having their faces carved into the rock face of a mountain.

That’s a tough question for me, because I’ve been a fan of the comic book artform for 55 years and have enjoyed the artwork of many, many different artists

  •   vintage_raymon I put this down 3 times ill check it out again tomorrow! 1d
  •   tha_suntan_superman @vintage_raymon Its not the greatest. It's kinda silly. It's great for the jJohn Byrne drawings & the 1st comic series I can remember that broke the 4th wall! (One of the things that Dead Pool is so famous for nowadays) but I can see how you put it down 3 times its more comedy. Something they didn't really get right until the 3rd-4th volume of She-Hulk. 1d
  •   vintage_raymon Honestly i dont know anything about it thats the only reason i put it down.My cousin said i made a stupid decision. 1d
  •   tha_suntan_superman @vintage_raymon I would say check it out. It's definitely ahead of its time and John Byrne took her in a different direction which hadn't been done previously. Dan Slott & Peter David have capitalized & made good the style in later years and works well for She-Hulk. But there is a reason why the series got cancelled as well!! 1d

keyissuescomics Ok, so I didn't take a photo of the inside, but you'll have to believe me on this-there's a #JohnByrne autograph on the 1st page!!! I accidentally came across it while flipping through it during a mass processing session last year. I almost accidentally sold it!!! I'm a huuuuge Byrne fan. I'm keeping this one because he doesn't sign anymore as far as I know.

duffscomics Just found these while looking through my DC boxes. Totally forgot about them. I bought them new in '86 when I was 12. I'm not a Superman fan but I loved the idea of re-envisioning an iconic character and grounding him in a reality closer to our own. (He shaved with his heat vision reflected off of a piece of shiny metal from the ship that brought him to Earth. Genius!) I had comic books before but these grabbed me. I became a collector after that and John Byrne was the first writer/artist was excited about. So in 1994 when I heard he was going to be at the Pittsburgh Comicon I hopped in my van and headed for the turnpike. Byrne signed my comics while I told my story. It was the first day of the con and it wasn't busy yet, so I got to stay a bit and talk to him. Seriously nice guy. #forgottentreasures #superman #johnbyrne #comiccollector #comicbooks #comics4sale #comicsforsale #igcomicfamily #DuffComics 2d
