    •  My wife, daughter, brother and sister-in-law will be joining me at the HickoryCon this weekend. It is a smaller one day show but it sounds like fun. We’re looking forward to dollarbins and a few artists sketching. I would like to get a few more Nick Fury or Nomad comics. Those are what I’m setting as my dollar bin goals this weekend. It is good to have goals. 

      •  $3.00 admission was a decent price for a fun one room show. This show had so many quarter and fifty cent boxes that we started snubbing the dollar bins as over priced. I did not find any Nick Fury, but I did get the majority of Nomad vol 2 and will almost complete my set. I also picked up some other fun and random comics. We had fun. They had gaming tables and Star Wars characters rumbling around. It was fun.
