    I bought some MLP comics for Katie from a comic store in Boulder. About 16 miles away. It took four days to arrive via Media Mail.

    The Red Dragon Numbered slipcase is just insanely nice. I keep looking at it from different angles just to see the color and texture change.
    Congrats! It's a super production for sure!

    Interesting observation - aka oblivious as HELL! - I didn't realize the cover art was of a train car until I got the slipcase. Yeah, I'm super observant.

    Book fit perfectly in the slipcase, even with the Brodart cover, so great job CD!

    I’m never in the market for these slipcases—clearly In the minority because CD sells a TON—but I’m always impressed with the pictures I see of them. Congrats on the addition.

    I had to track down this old post - but my Kickstarter Mouse Guard figures arrived. Found a LED lit display case at Michael's (it's made for Funko Pop!s) and glued some LEGO plates to the bottom. This fit all of the figures perfectly and I think it looks really cool.

    And related - there is a new Kickstarter from Crazy Bricks for 13 (!!) custom LEGO figurines. I really wanted them, but it seemed a bit silly (dare I say, ridiculous?) to spend over $200 on these things, but my wife said "Do it!" and who am I to argue with the wife. Plus after seeing this little guy, I'm super excited to have the rest of them in my collection.

    One of the very few positives from this pandemic, is that artists are doing a lot more commissions for people since all of the comic conventions have been canceled.

    Brian Miller - Oktopolis - is a fun artist who I originally discovered through a random Doctor Who print that my wife found on eBay. One weekend, I got a bug in my ear and decided to ask how much his commissions were, and they were VERY reasonable. So I ordered one. Those that know me should understand why I chose the subject matter I did.

    I was really surprised to see him use watercolors for the coloring - I just wasn't expecting that. Plus it was fun to watch (the replay since I was working) his Twitch stream where he inked and colored it.

    The other item I recently acquired is waiting to be framed, but I'll give you all a tease. I'm super excited to get this one back home and can't wait to show it off. Here are the original sketches for that "mystery" item:

    That's why I had to buy a new case for IT.

    IT was actually the first CD book I purchased - ordered it from Amazon from all places. They were the only place selling it when I found out about it. After quite a few "are you still interested in this item because we don't know when we'll get it" emails, my copy finally arrived. The slipcase has this giant barcode sticker on the back that wouldn't come off very well, so during a sale (maybe one of those sweet 44% off July 4th sales,) I got myself a new slipcase.

    Speaking of slipcases - I also bought a few plain black ones that were supposed to fit some CD books, but I have no idea which books those were.
