Good News/ Bad News

Hello True Believers!
I owe Stan Lee a nickel every time I write that, but it's totally worth it. I'll tell him to put it on my tab. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know about some things going on with the blog, now that I'm getting some more time to work on it. So would you like the good news or the bad news first? I always pick bad, so I know what's wrong right away.

Well, it's nothing too serious, just that the scanner part of my "all-in-one" printer recently broke, so I'd just like to apologize for the lack of visual content on the site. I feel as if it's negatively effected the aesthetic appeal of such an illustrious institution as Four Freedoms. Plus, pictures are pretty. That was the bad news. See, it wasn't so rough!

The good news is that I found a store on eBay that has a lot of the issues I'm missing from the much ballyhooed "box" for a dollar a piece, and flat rate shipping. They also have a bunch of FF minis and one-shots for a dollar an issue, which will do nicely for the other new features I'm planning. I'm so excited for those, but they require an active scanner. So I'm thinking I'll get the comics soon, and a new scanner down the road somewhere...who knows, maybe I'll just splurge and get one. I'm bad like that.

Until Next Time, Vive le Fantastique!


  1. Is the fact that you found a store selling the FF comics you need really a good thing, Kello? Sure, it may be a good thing for your mind, but I think your wallet might beg to differ!

    My advice? Just splurge for the scanner. The same thing happened to me, I had one of those printers that could do everything but the laundry, and for some reason, the scanner part began to scan the pictures so lightly that it was at times difficult to even see what I had scanned. Long story short, I went to Amazon, and wound up buying a cheap scanner that has served me VERY well for the past several months.

  2. You make a good point about eBay (our mutual enemy!), because I have a ton to read already. I'm kind of in the "planning phase" of the purchase. Usually if I wait long enough, common sense kicks in and I decide to act like an adult.

    Yeah, I might just buy the updated version of the same scanner. I saw one at Wal-Mart for $70, and even if it only lasts 2 years like the previous one it will be okay.

  3. You know, who am I to give others advice on avoiding eBay, our arch-nemesis! The last time I went there I wound up snagging the entire Aquaman series from the 90's, which just added another huge pile of comics to the floor of my Comic Book room...
