Captain America Patriot Captain America Patriot

Mitch Breitweiser Signing
September 18th, 2010!

Little Rock native and Marvel Comics artist Mitch Breitweiser, who burst onto the comics scene with his fine illustrations of Captain America and Drax the Destroyer, will be doing a signing of his newest work, CAPTAIN AMERICA: PATRIOT #1, at COLLECTOR'S EDITION in North Little Rock!

Captain America: Patriot is an early tale of Captain America set in 1941, when he first wore the mask and lifted the iconic shield -- inspiring another would be hero: The Patriot.

From Noon to 2 P.M. on Saturday, September 18th, 2010, Mitch will be chatting with fans, signing copies of the first issue of Captain America: Patriot, and doing sketches.

Captain America and the images on both sides of this notice are TM and (C) Copyright 2010 by Marvel Comics.

Walt Disney and The Good Duck Artist



I've posted a new page devoted to the legendary Carl Barks.

Carl Barks was always one of my favorite storytellers, being both an exceptional artist and extraordinary storyteller. It was a rare combination.

If you'd like a quick tour of the career of the man who, because he worked in an age before printed credits, was known as The Good Duck Artist, all you have to do is click this link: Disney Ducks!



Destination Comics!








Both
Collector's Edition and The Comic Book Store were a Destination Comics! feature location in issue #1664 (April 2010) of the Comics Buyer's Guide magazine.










I've added a new section to try and dispell a common misconception†about the comic book industry.

Comic Book Store owners always get a bad rap, as the public perception is that we're all like the rude, Simpson's Comic Book Store Guy, laziing around, and surrounded by nothing but food and big stacks of Super-Hero comics.

Like a Super-Hero, my other hobbies involve a mask and breathing apparatus, specialized training that includes rescue, dangerous activities and encounters with deadly animals,†plus travel around the world to exotic locations,†including a†trip down the road to a lost civilization.

These†are the incredible, but true adventures of a masked Comic Book Store Guy:

We've all heard of Good Luck Charms.
Here are my experiences in surviving an extremely potent Bad Luck Charm.
Decades ago I read a comment by award-winnning science-fiction and fantasy writer Michael Moorcock, who refered to writing as an act of exorcism.
This is my exorcism:

Nothing here to do with publishing or such. This page is a community service where I share, for the benfit of others, my experiences in dealing with lightning, felled trees and insurance companies. Even included a recent tornado experience.
