Checking Out the Museum!

The Metropolitan Museum of Art: Today was the last day of the Gustave Courbet exibit so I went down to go get some culture but I must confess I had ulterior motives! I really went to check out the exibit on Superhero fashions. Well how was it? Fanboyilly speaking it had some cool stuff like Christopher Reeves Superman outfit as well as a faded Lynda Carter, Wonder Woman outfit from 1976. Two spiderman outfits, Iron Man proto type outfit , Batman outfit, Catwoman outfit. Mystique from the X-Men movies and a bunch of corny fashion outfits that were supposedly inspired by superhero looks. as my dear comic coveting homeboy Delmo Walters Jr would would exclaim: TWY AGAIN! Dont even get me started! The coolest thing they had was premire issues encased of course but so close you could drool on it. Action Comics 1, Tales of Suspense ( first Iron man apperance) Marvel Spotlight first appearance of Ghost Rider, and a whole bunch of others! It totally won me over it was totally worth it being in the same room as those books!

Hi Phil,

I'm a writer and artist from New Zealand. I found you through Checker Board Kid's, which I found through CXB, which I in turn found through something else I was researching. I mainly write and am looking for someone else to cobalorate in a comic with, are you taking submissions? My writer creds include a BA in creative writing, and i've graduated from the IOWA workshop when it came to NZ. Give me a yell if you are interested. I also have children's books as well. Looking for someone to team with to maybe make a lulu book or something.
