    Yeah, the crappiness of OMD and BND's premise aside, Slott's attitude towards comics is fantastic.

    Slott's love for bolding words is only topped by the one known as Memphis Slim.

    Don't compare them. Dan Slott brings love and happiness to the world. Slim just rants, and occasionally posts pictures of cheerleaders.

    Wow, y'know, I live in Brooklyn and Jim Hanley's is literally less than an hour on one subway train away. I've been there many, many, many times, although not this year yet. It is a nice, big, purdy, and expensive shop. They even charge TAX. On BACKBOARDS. Eh, Manhattan for ya.

    The very notion of getting the issue already was a mixed bag. Now I very easily could make a signing....

    Fate tempts me.

    You should go and get issues of Avengers: The Initiative, She-Hulk, and The Thing signed. :)

    I was thinking of doing that. Not bringing a messload of comics, but maybe the #1's. Slott signed some copies of THE THING in another Manhattan shop, Cosmic Comics, and I bought an issue of Thing there once, I think it was issue #2 or #3.

    Still, man, as if the decision to get or not to get BND was already hard, now this makes it even more irresistable. It'll be RIGHT THERE, overordered on every shelf. With Mr. Slott in the back signing and likely spreading humor about.

    Don't do it, Dread. If all else fails, just stay home. They can smell indecision a mile away. :o

    I wonder how much more money an issue would be worth if you get a creator to sign it twice? Once when he had a cult following, and again once he's made it big. Maybe even one more time after he's worn out his welcome and everybody hates him.

    I think there's a threshold after which it just becomes a comic with a bunch of crap scribbled on it. More is not always better, contrary to US society's ideology.

    I know. :dry:

    Still, I don't go to too many con's, and making this is almost too easy. A line'll probably be around the block, though. Anything with a line gets insane in Manhattan.

    Would a Chuck Austen comic go up from like 50 cents to $1.50 if he signed it?

    More like you would have to pay somebody a buck fifty to take it off your hands.

    No, at this point I think it'd lose value. It'd be like some random bum signing the comic--he's not liked enough for it to really count as a signature, it's just ink staining the cover and thus lowering the value.

    The New York Post had an article about the launch of BMD, which I posted in the OMD topic, yet they failed to mention Slott, or the signing at all. Interesting.

    I still am very, very torn. Hopefully the shop won't have a policy of, "buy BND or no signing for you", because that would be annoying. It is Manhattan, where they'd make you pay for air if they could, so it isn't impossible.

    Why is Dread pretending to be on the fence? Everyone, including him, knows that he'll be buying BND.
