And this posting was made on Craigslist by the guy running the convention....
I am one of the sellers at the comic book convention in Urbandale on Sunday June 7! It had previously been scheduled for the 17th Not all the comics at these things are high priced collectors items!
I will be bringing over 10,000 comics that will be priced as follows: when you buy 10 or less they are $.1.oo each, if you buy more than 10 but less than 50 they are 50c each and if you buy more than 50 they are 40c each. This means you can get 50 comic books of your choice for $20! There will also be deals if you buy them by the box full!
There will be a wide variety of comics ranging in age from the 1970s to earlier this year, most will be from the major publishers (Marvel & DC) although second tier publishers (such as Dark Horse, Image, Crossgen & IDW) and also including youth oriented comics (such as Archie & Disney) will be represented. These are not all over printed comics from the 1990s, although there will be some from this time period.
Chances are you won't find any comics worth more than $50 here such as Hulk 181, Transformers 80, MiracleMan 15 or the first print of the Spider-Man Obama cover. You will however find plenty of comics that have price guid "values" in the $5 to $10 range. Since new comic books are now going for at least $2.99 each, you can buy 50 comics of your choice from me for less than 7 new ones would be at a comic book shop!
I will be set up in the center of the room.
The date of the convention is June 7 it is open from 10 AM until 4 PM. !
The Location of the event is at the Comfort Suites At Living History Farms 11167 Hickman Rd , Urbandale ( I-80 / I-35 EXIT 125)
