NYCC

This weekend was the 4th annual New York Comic Con (NYCC).

New York Comicon - Crowd

I have been going to the NY Comic Con ever since it began four years ago.  Before the NY Comic Con, I had been to several small conventions in the area over the years.  When the NY Comic Con was started, I wasn’t planning on going because I figured the admission would be a bit expensive and I had a one year old boy at home.  However, I discovered that since I’m a librarian, I could sign up as a “professional” and get in for free!  Unfortunately, this year professionals didn’t get in for free and we had to pay a small admission price.  However, we had our own separate entrance onto the convention floor and I got in just as things opened up.

Since I started going to the NYCC, my main concern besides seeing if I can get some cheap comics was getting my books graded by CGC.  Over the past few years, I’ve gotten the following books from my collection graded “Incredible Hulk” #181, “Ultimate Spider-man” #1, and “Uncanny X-Men # 139.  Getting your books graded by CGC can be expensive.  It’s about $16 a book plus insurance and shipping.  I decided this year would be different.  I decided to get a few books graded, but this time, I decided to get them signed and graded.
