I decided to start posting a monthly haul of what is added to my Batman collection, starting with September. Some months, there could be little to nothing. Other months, we could be at this a while haha. This was a decent month.

Con Essential: The Comic Book Stor-folio

Storfolio

 

The Comic Book Stor-Folio is a handy dandy little box that opens up for you to slide comics into, either to carry around in your normal life or shop trips, or for cons. I was wanting one of these bad boys for a while, and just before Wizard World St Louis, I decided to order one to give it a proper go.

IT WAS AMAZING!

My first time out with it, it was for the con. It fit perfectly into my new con bag, and it’s super light (well, when it’s empty), so it isn’t like I’m hauling around some heavy duty thing. Enough junk has to get stuffed into my con bag as it is, so light was definitely a plus.

This was really beneficial to me in two ways:

  • Putting fancier books into the Stor-Folio to protect them a little more, even if they were already bagged and boarded.
  • Putting things that aren’t bagged and boarded, like a decent haul from a 15 for $10 booth, in for protection, so they didn’t get all banged up and destroyed in my bag.

The Stor-Folio can hold around 15 current or silver age books, and has this fancy little slot on the front, where you can put in some art to make it look cooler, or store an extra comic. I’d like to put some nifty art in there, myself. Just need to decide on something.

Anyway, I’ve obviously used this for con, but I’ve taken it to shops a few times so I can store my books in my bag and know they’re well protected. It’ll probably go with me the next time I go to New York or anywhere similar, where I go into a lot of shops.

This little baby is currently full of books that are heading to FanExpo Canada with me in roughly three weeks. I’m so excited! Expect a post on my packing progress within the next few weeks.

Free Comic Book Day 2017

Free Comic Book Day comes but once a year – the first weekend in May, to be exact. It’s a time where new fans and old fans comeFCBD2 out from all over to grab free comics, check out some deals, and all around enjoy some nerdy good times.

This was the first time in a few years I’ve decided to participate in FCBD, but I knew this year I had to not only for myself, but because it was the first year my nieces both seemed ready to participate. They’ve been working on their own comic collections, and when I told them about FCBD, they HAD TO GO. Plus, my mom wanted to go, and my best friend joined us last minute. Nerd Girls, unite!

Collector On the Go

SixFlags13

I love collecting things. My main, and largest, collection is my Batman collection. I literally have SO MUCH Batman stuff, that I have 90% of it stored in boxes because I can’t keep it all on display at the moment, at least not until I have more space. But I collect more than just Batman stuff. I collect horror and Marvel things, Nightmare Before Christmas, Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Star Wars (love me some Stormtroopers), etc. I’ve really gotten into Pop! Vinyl figures from shows and movies and games that I love. Which reminds me – I also have a huge book and movie collection. Basically – if I love it, there’s a chance I collect it.
This love of collecting, especially my Batman addiction, isn’t limited to just what I can find locally or order online. More than once I’ve bought things for my collection while on a trip for a completely different reason.
