Montreal Comiccon 2016 Part 2: LOOT!

Montreal Comiccon 2016 art by Yien Yip | Gamerwife.com

As I mentioned in Part 1 of my Montreal Comiccon 2016 recap, I spent a lot of money on art this year. Like, a LOT. I mean, I went in with a budget and a plan… I blame my friend Anne for enabling my art hoarding tendencies. That said, I genuinely LOVE everything I bought, although finding room on our walls is going to be a whole other story.

Montreal Comiccon 2016 GGB Goodies | Gamerwife.com My first bit of loot was technically free as it was part of the comic exchange we had as part of the pre-comiccon brunch for Geek Girl Brunch Montreal. I’ve never read any Terry Moore, so I was super lucky to grab these trades from Anne. I’d contributed some Lumberjanes singles and the few issues of Princess Ugg I’d managed to find before I decided to get the whole thing in trades.

First stop was Gillian Newland. I hadn’t planned on grabbing so much art from one artists, but they were having a Sunday sale and Anne wanted to grab something too, so I just kept going.

I absolutely love the Reapers piece with the Mass Effect relay in the background. It’s so atmospheric.

Death Nouveau by Yien Yip

I actually read both Death trades before I’d read a single issue of Sandman (attention: wannabe goth girl), so I had to get this stunning piece by Yien Yip. She also had some great Delirium t-shirts that were very tempting.

Beard accessories for Rick by Brave & Bearded

Rick had commissioned me to find some Witcher art since we don’t have any at home yet, but I had absolutely no luck at at. Not a single piece. It was kind of surprising, but I suppose it’s still sort of niche. To make up for my abject failure in that department I decided to treat him to some proper beard grooming instruments as his beard is quite bushy these days and I’m sick of him using my terrible hairbrush.

Red Sonja (forgot artist, if you recognize it help me out!), stickers by Sarah Quirion & Fighter card by Bluberry Canvas

I really wish I could remember who’d painted that adorably chubby Red Sonja. She’s so cute, I just couldn’t resist. And of course, the Daredevil and Jessica Jones stickers will be going onto my planner toute suite.

How fantastic is Hawkeye and pizza dog?! I want to see a Netflix series of that storyline. And of course I had to get the Mass Effect beefcake stickers.

Garrus by Jakface & Jem and She-Ra by Kevin Briones

I’m not generally very nostalgic for my childhood cartoons, but something about the sense of movement in these pieces by Kevin Briones really spoke to me.

More earrings by the amazing Lilipop

And finally, I knew going into the con that I had to grab the BB-8 earrings by Lilipop, makers of my beloved R2-D2 earrings. And, because I don’t own a lot of stuff that celebrates my horror side, I had to get the Jason earrings as well.

And that’s it. All my loot from Montreal Comiccon 2016. Now to lock my wallet away for the rest of the summer. *sigh*

    Woah awesome buys Mariko! I love seeing people’s loot, it’s like living vicariously through them 🙂 If you remember give us an update with how Rick goes with his purchases, I bought Ben some beard oil once for a present and when he remembers to use it he loves it (maybe I do more :P) he he he

      Thanks, Fee. Rick very much likes his beard products. He uses them with the beard oil I make for him, but I also steal the comb sometimes because it is THE BEST comb I have ever used. Especially on my wet hair. It detangles like magic.

    Are there moths flying out of your wallet? Hahah it looks like you had a pretty amazing haul this year from Comic Con! I’m glad you had a lot of fun! I love the Jessica Jones art and the Jem and She-ra.

      Yeah, I definitely did some damage this year. The Jessica Jones, Jem & She-ra are all for my ‘wall o’ bad-ass babes’ above my desk. I just need to get some frames for them.

    SO MUCH WONDERFUL STUFF! I absolutely love that Reapers Mass Effect print, and I need that Thane hunk sticker in my life SO MUCH. And that Death piece! Swoon. Great haul!
