Sunday Wrap-Up #22 San Diego Comic-Con Edition

Sunday Wrap-Up is all about sharing the books and book related items that I’ve picked up recently. I also recap what went on last week and let you in on what’s coming up. I link up my post to Sunday Post, Bought, Borrowed & Bagged, Showcase Sunday, Stacking the Shelves and IMM.Β 
   
This week I will be doing something different. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you may have notice my posts about SDCC. To make a long story short, the Mr. was able to snag a re-sale ticket but the only ones available were senior or military and apparently being a spouse of a military member did not count. So I was unable to go but the Mr. was able to go and his first Comic-Con experience was a success. Below I will be showcasing some of the cool things he got while there.

Teenager Destiny Harper is at a crossroads in her life. Graduation is coming and she has zero prospects for the future. Answering an ad for the Night Care Nursery seems like a great idea, until she is magically transported to Gloomvania, where dark creatures lurk in the streets, and the world is being mysteriously overrun by baby vampires called Vamplets! Can Destiny serve her term as governess of the Nightmare Nursery and return home? Fairy tales get a modern update in this coming-of-age tale of monsters, mayhem, and magic.

 
 
The Mr. couldn’t find the area where they were signing the covers for these so I didn’t get the special cover signature. Wah Waaaaah

P1120198

If you watch Robot Chicken there is an episode with My Little Pony where there’s a pony named “Death Pony”. (By far one of their best episodes in my p.o) So when the Mr. saw Carrie, she’s a Skelanimal, he knew I’d love it… and I do!

 
  
 

 

 
P1120179

The most amazing part of all… the Venom guitar!
I told the Mr. that I really wanted this guitar. They only made 100 of them. It was an awesome design and there was a slight chance that Stan Lee &/or Todd McFarlane signed it. However, when they signed the guitars, they put them in a box. So when you bought the guitar, you didn’t know if the one you chose was signed or not until you opened the boxP1120178 and looked inside. The Mr. called me after Comic-con to tell me that Todd McFarlane signed it. It wasn’t until he came home and I opened the box that we realized that it was ALSO signed by Stan Lee.
