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.

One of my faaaaavorite artists, Adam Hughes, is going to be there! I can’t wait. I’m going to take some Catwoman books to get signed. Plus, I have this gorgeous poster I picked up at con last month:

Which also sort of leads me into a new side project…:

TheCatForce

Recently, a group was formed on Instagram called The Cat Force ( @_thecatforce ), a page branching off of The Bat Force. The members currently include myself and four other ladies (Gen, Cheri, and Naj) – SUPER dedicated Catwoman fans. I’ve been playing catch up, with my recent comic haul:

COMICHAUL1

The current plan is that I’ll be covering con stuff for our page. Exciting, right?!

I’ll have an update post next month with more goodies to share.

Anyone else going to FanExpo? Who are you most excited to see?
