Last weekend, we made a semi-spontaneous trip to Baltimore to see an Orioles game (they blew it in the ninth, naturally) and visit the Geppi Entertainment Museum next to Camden Yards, which, if you haven't visited, is well worth the $1 game-day admission price (and even worth the $10 on non-game days, if you're in the geek-out zone). It is a veritable children's treasury of comics paraphernalia and WTF delights, so I thought I'd share a few faves in picture format. Do enjoy:
The comics room. Overheard here, by a dad to his toddler son in front of the early issues of Action: "That comic is worth more than your organs!"
So it HAS been done before! Presidential Material 1.0!
And, uh... yeah.
As if there isn't enough grit in Hell's Kitchen.
If I could own any classic #1, it might be this one.
Yeah, that's right Bendis. This is where the first issue of Powers goes in a museum. Deal.
This cover improves my mood every. Single. Time. I. See. It.
Ooo, win my own pony!! Wait what the hell is that?
Guns. For Pez. PEZ GUNS.
Superman, in the pocket of Big Wheat.
GAAAAAHHH! DO NOT WANT.
Funny, this was the theme of my 16th birthday party.
Ok, so there was this amazing display of Barbies in evening gowns, and I have to admit I was kind of in awe and drooling a little at all the pretty pretty dolls in their dresses. And then there was this, one of the limited editions celebrating Barbie's 50th. I want you to just look hard at this, and think about it for a few minutes, until you can't think about it any more.
