RI Comic Con took place last weekend, and Bill shares his experiences. Panels included Billy Dee Williams and Millie Bobbie Brown from Stranger Things. Bill had a modest collecting haul, making some additions to his fledgling 3.75 Star Wars collection. A true highlight of the artists alley was the work of painter Jason Brockert aka @NerdlyArt.
In collector news, Funko Pop has announced their Smugglers Bounty January box: The Empire Strikes Back. Super7 began pre-orders for the first releases after having taken over the Masters of the Universe Classics line. And Marvel announced a Darth Maul comic book miniseries, to be released in 2017.
