Foreign Comic Collector - Page 2

Welcome to F.C.C.! You came back! Could it be we piqued your interest in foreigns? Ha, these damn things are very addictive my friends. In this issue we have a wonderful story on Conan’s early history in comics and it's not quite what you might think? I have always had a soft spot for our favorite barbarian and it seems like some Conan completists are going to be driven nuts with this wonderful investigative piece! Wondering how to get a physical printed copy of the mag? Well, print runs are very small at the moment but we are hoping to get physical copies to comic conventions as soon as possible. Please bear with us as we ramp up our physical presence at shows. Enjoy our second issue with a heavy Conan bent and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any ideas for a story or just want to tell us your experience with foreign variants! Editor Define999 (Matt) Mission Statement On the cover So Tony AKA solorcadet decided he wanted to get his Batman Death in the Family set signed by Mike Mignola at Phat Collectibles in Anaheim California. December 15, 2012 rolled around and he trucked the entire set: BDITF American, Thai, German, Finnish, Mexican, Brazilian and brought them to Mr. Mignola's attention. Needless to say Mike tripped out, and wasn't too pleased with a certain foreign publisher's decision to change some inking work on his iconic cover. Thanks to solarcadet for sharing this cool pic and if your interested in contacting Tony you can email him here......
