Comic Book Open House

I received an e-mail recently inviting me to a comic book sell and I figure I would share it with you.  I do not know who sent it or why I got it.  I do not know if it is some mailing list I am part of or someone I meet some time in the past. That is my life, trying to figure out who these crazies who seem to know me but I do not know them are.

On Wednesday December 12 there will be an open house for local comic book enthusiastic to go through a fantastic comic book collection find, from 6 pm- 9 pm.  The original owner, Duane Wiebeck Sr, collected comics from the 60’s till his death in the early 90’s.  There are approximately 17-19 long boxes.  The more substantial items have already been sold, but there are still plenty of others left to go through.

The group putting this on is looking to start some kind of local comic book club for the area as well.  Something to meet other collectors, talk about happenings in the world of comics, trade and sell with each other, and work out going to conventions together.  So this would be a great time to discuss that as well.  Just find and talk to Robert Barker.

News from Mothman Festival

Heard some news from the Mothman Festival guys and I thought I would share.

This past year’s Mothman Festival broke all previous attendance records with lovely weather and only a few problems.  They were able to raise enough money to buy a headstone for Mothman witness and regular festival guest Linda Scarberry

Next year’s event is September 21 and 22 with the Mothman Pageant on Friday September 20 evening.  So mark your calenders for the third weekend in September.

Mothman Museum hours are most days (expect holidays) from noon till 5pm expect Fridays and Saturday which are from 11am till 5pm.  The new Mothman Lives website is being worked on, but has been delayed.

That is all I have for now.
