Viva Mexican Comics

Ok, so if we’re going to get technical, some of these aren’t Mexican comics, they’re translated comics from the US. But let’s not get too heavy here and instead just acknowledge that Mexico is awesome and celebrate that fact by bidding on some comics. Buy them for a friend who is building a bar in the hip part of town. He can frame them and it’ll be “clever” or something.

You know this guy. Diabolico. He’s “El Hombre Que No Something A Nada!”

Sexual truckers. Viva.

It does seem gran.

The fact that I don’t speak the language makes this comic 20x more bizarre, and appealing.

POSTERS ARE STILL COOL

Posters get clowned on this site, by me especially. They are clear evidence that you’re under 24 and make less than $23k per year. OR AT LEAST THAT’S WHAT I USED TO THINK. Now I recognize that posters are cool, have always been cool, and will always be cool. Yeah, it might be hard to convince your wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, concubine, maid, person you pick up at a bar, etc that a Hulk poster hanging in your living room is the behavior of an adult professional with upward mobility. But what if that poster is a Lee Weeks Hulk illustration that perfectly captures the childlike nature and constant frustration of the character? What then? Who can deny it?

And what if it’s classic? People collect vintage Coca-Cola signs and proudly put them in their homes; why not Fantastic Four posters?

Or what if it has a great message attached? What sort of anti-education troglodyte would poo-poo this pro-literacy poster featuring C3PO? A monster, that’s who.

POSTERS ARE STILL COOL. SAY IT TO YOURSELF UNTIL YOU BELIVE IT. EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO HANG THEM IN YOUR GARAGE-TURNED-REC-ROOM, THEY SHOULD HAVE A PLACE IN YOUR HOME.

Is Marcos Martin the Best Artist In Comics?

Yes. He is. Buy these.

Poster for your wall. Fight nazism wherever it’s found. Who can argue with that? Hopefully not your wife or husband who insists you take down the comic book posters from your wall. Ask them whose side they’re on.

Very important you read this. Either for the Martin art or the Vaughn story or for your love of Doctor Strange. Whatever gets you there, just read it. It’s fantastic. All issues for cheap here. Buy.

Posters Of the Damned

Tomorrow, I promise I’ll post some items you may actually want. But today I’d like to take a minute and celebrate the auction items that are just shy of being given away for free. I don’t want to call them the dredges of the promotional poster world, but they’re undersized, under-realized, and often hawking characters or series no one cares about. They’re hard sells. But being set at rock-bottom prices turns a hard sell into a “why not” and that’s where these auctions find themselves. Check’m out and get impulsive.

I would buy a Frank Quitely illustration of a photo of my girl with another man. That’s how much I love his work. But what the hell am I looking at? The female, bug, Angel? Was any effort made to make her a real character? Why does a poster of her even exist?

George Perez at not his finest moment. Is it bad? No. But is it as good as Perez gets? Hell no. Also, I lose track of which Robin people care about and which they think is stupid. This one has my vote for stupid.

This one is a little different because this person isn’t selling a single poster, but a service. They are available for poster commissions of the sort you’re currently looking at. How can you say no? Anything you want drawn, in any medium! And at that price- so worth it!

And my favorite, a promotional poster for a series so forgettable and ill-conceived that I needed a reminder not only that it exists but that series of this type still exist. Thanks, poster.

Post-Halloween Bargain Hulk

The holiday has passed and all that remains is smashed eggs on the sidewalk, toilet paper in the trees, and deep discounts on costumes on Ebay. Ever wanted to be the Hulk? Ever want to be the Hulk after someone else already wore his ripped purple pants? Here’s your chance. Gamma radiation, priced to move.

She-Hitch

Ultimates it’s not, but we’ve all got to make rent I suppose.

Bryan Hitch is one of the best in comics. Even if you hate his style and blame him for the “decompression of comic story telling” (but that’s a phrase for hicks who don’t understand there is more than one way to tell a story, so I know you wouldn’t use it), you’ve got to love his precision. When he’s on his game, there are few who do BIGGER better than he does. This page may not be one of his finer moments, but it’s a fun, affordable collectable that celebrates a career that made careers for those around it and contributed to the medium being used in new ways. Buy.

Mystery Insanity.

So, the NYCC exclusives continue to march across Ebay, leaving a trail of burnt-out bidders suckered into overpriced purchases in its wake. Can someone help me decipher this item? I see Doom with his corrected face and I see it’s on a box, but that’s all I see. I don’t know what this product actually is. Either it’s the most expensive box I’ve ever encountered, or there’s something cool inside. But what? The seller offers no information other than the fact that it’s from NYCC and it’s an exclusive. Do you think maybe he or she doesn’t know what’s inside? Or is this for insiders only? Cool kid club? Someone help me out here.

The Madness Continues!

We’ve got another NYCC Exclusive here. And boy do I find it confusing.

Are we trying to confuse kids now? What is this? A toy. I’ve managed to figure that much out. But what character does it seek to represent? Compound Hulk? Who is that guy? I don’t know him. He looks lamer than hell. I mean, are we making these exclusively for 3-year-olds who play with them in the tub? A 6-year-old would demand to know who it was that he was playing with if he was given this monstrosity as a gift.

Iron Foot

Usually, I put a little effort into thinking up some clever copy for each post to make the site fun and motivate you to check out auctions you may not otherwise click on. But I can’t even front this time. I have no idea what’s happening in this auction. Apparently, it’s Iron Fist in an Argentinean soccer jersey. Sounds simple enough, but I’m tripping out looking at this thing.

A Vision Of Beauty

I’ve made it clear I love Rick Leonardi. He’s one of the unsung greats and has done more to keep me excited about comics than most of the supposed giants in the field. I’ve probably also made it clear I think the Vision is one of the characters in the Marvel universe with the most potential. He’s (it’s?) a robot that thinks like a man that thinks like a robot. At the end of the the day, what is he? He’s married, but largely incapable of the emotions that allow for a loving relationship. He’s complex, man. I feel him.

I’m also feeling this gorgeous (and weirdly affordable) page from Vision and The Scarlet Witch #1. I know, Vision isn’t on the page and I’ve got significantly less love for Wanda than I do for him, but look at panel six. Look at that. Leonardi is as much a robot as Vision. He’s a robot programmed to make the absolute best-looking comic books imaginable. Frame this.
