ok, we have a solid second place for best comic book store in the cleveland area. “comics and friends” in the mall out in mentor is spectacular. i just visited it with a few pals of mine and was very surprised by the selection and condition of silver and bronze age comics that have in stock. for you non silver and bronze folks go, the selection of current comic books and graphic novel books rivals any other book store in town. what they had of what i came for was a surprise to say the least. most book stores that have silver and bronze age books in hand tend to tell tall tales as to the amount and condition they have on hand, north coast nostalgia being the exception and best comic book store in cleveland (see october 15th and 26th updates). comics and friends has a wonderful collection of the both, prize books and a large selection to choose from. i picked up several, captain america and the falcon #150, monsters on the prowl #18, the amazing spider-man #107, tales of suspense #88 and the pick of the litter iron man and sub-mariner #1 in VF+ condition. no self respecting silver age collection can go without one of those in high grade condition. now with that booty, you’d think i paid a ransom for…wrong. they got a fair price for the sale and were willing to work with me on the price so we both walked away happy. so there you go…north coast nostalgia is the best cleveland comic book store followed up with the second best, comics and friends…trust me, have i ever lied to you and been caught? 😉

so i filled in for the grumpy old man show today, 9am to 11am. the grumpy old man isn’t either, its a persona he puts on for the listeners, they all think he’s really a grumpy old man…..anyway, dan (grumpy old man) was out with the flu so i stepped in. he’s got a big following, so i got a ton of calls and some requests…the alman brothers…um, didn’t play. dio, scorpions, ufo, thin lizzy, judas priest, rainbow, blue oyster cult, angel, angel city, and so on i did. i did get a good request for a band i never heard of, “the motors”, i think the song was called phony heaven (listen below), it’s on their first record and it ROCKED! i just bought it on ebay i hope the rest of it’s good.. anyway back to the grumpy old man, i told everyone listening he was out getting a hip replacement.

…i mean thanks giving! i dont have much going on, cooking a turkey for me and the boys…rommel and the jo, while switching back and forth from star trek (the original series) and football.

as far as art goes..we’re working on two books to come out early 2018, i’ll have much more information on them when we get closer to the release dates.

as far as radiothon goes (see november 6th and 16th updates) we did great, we hit beyond our target number. a total of $51,388.30 was raised! i want to thank everyone who donated and gave support to the radio station. without you, we wouldn’t be able to cover costs and might have had to go off the air.

i busted out this old hand turkey drawing from 2011 for the holiday..have a good one.
