Cheap as free & expensive as f**k.
Let's start with the expensive. Bad news before good, I always say.
- While wandering 'cross the eBay today, I discovered that if you have one and three quarters thousand dollars, you can buy two cels from Robotech II: The Sentinels here and here. Frankly, that seems a bit crazy to me, since if you hit a stop on the convention tour all you practically have to do is ask a Harmony Gold rep nicely to get a Sentinels cel ... okay, it's a bit harder than that, answer some trivia or ask a question or something, but not what I'd call a thousand dollars hard. Yowch. Let's see if anyone decides to bite, and if they do, let's laugh at them, OK?
- Also this afternoon, I tripped over the web presence of Duc Tran, the guy who did Robotech: Vermilion at Antarctic Press a little over nine years ago now -- man, it doesn't feel like that long ago. Anyway, that was one of the few Antarctic ROBOTECH comics that we can call "good" on an objective scale, so finding out he's been keeping himself busy was a good thing. He goes by the handle "L0cke" these days, and his site, filled with cool art and comics and stuff, is here. Be forewarned, to navigate it you may need to turn your monitor upside-down. That is, unless you're like me, and can actually read upside-down text without getting too much of a headache ...
