You are at a Convention or personal appearance by one of your favorite creators. They are signing stuff. BUT - You don't have the dough to acquire their signature/statement masterpiece work of art...
However, being the all-knowing fan boy that you are - you do know that he/she sent in a response (as a fan) to the letter column of Avengers #238 (random book) and had it published. That Avengers #238 is imminently more affordable than their signature/statement masterpiece work. What a cool (and potentially cheaper) item to have signed!
I need your help! If you happen to JUST know really obscure random stuff like this; I know your pain. It takes a lot of brain power away from more useful productive things. Please share what you know.
If you are a creator type and want to contribute because you are just cool that way... AWESOME.
Please leave a comment or two if you have the time.
