Doug: Here's a simple question, with all BABers living in the same fantasy land: Let's just suppose that either Karen or I won the lottery (which we didn't), and allowed every one of our readers to go to their local comic shop or a convention nearby and pick out one item -- on us. What would you get? To complicate your thinking just a bit, this is your LCS; it's not a mail-order offer. Nope -- you go to the LCS or a convention that is closest to you and pick out one item. Again, what would you get? Money is no object, because, hypothetically (don't anyone try to send us a bill!) we're going to reimburse you.
Doug: So what's that one thing you'd love to have, have always stayed away from due to price, but now in this fantasyland you could finally own? Does your LCS have a great stock of back issues? Is there a hardcover or omnibus you've wanted? How about statues? What's the nearest convention to you like? Is it a megacon like New York, Chicago, or San Diego? Or is it a smaller, mom-and-pop show in a hotel ballroom or civic center? The sky's the limit today, friends, based on your circumstances -- wish away!
Doug: Below is something I wanted many years ago, when the Warner Bros. Studio Stores were still around. It's a very large print, painted of course by Alex Ross of the Legion of Super-Heroes (I believe Karen ran this image previously in a post she penned). Framed, matted -- wow. I'd love to have this! And I know that I've seen these at the Chicago Comicon in past years, so I meet my own criteria for today's post. Pricey, this is! And, in the event that I could not get hold of this beauty, I'd probably purchase myself the set of bootlegs of the 1966 Marvel Super-Heroes cartoons -- someone please tell me why these never received the DVD treatment?
