Comic Book Swap Meet photo recap...

Now that I'm finally getting caught up on life (after being down and out with illness), I thought I should drop a photo gallery from the Comic Book Swap Meet from January 31st. I'm hoping to get some show reviews from attendees posted, rather than me gloat about how amazing my show is. I'd like to see and share other peoples opinions. Enjoy the pictures. The photos are courtesy of H. McKenney Photography.
Guest of Honor, Jeffrey Veregge and his son...
