Today we asked our staff… What is your most prized geeky treasure?
Josie Price: Sometimes ordering things online is like throwing rocks at a bird, this was not one of these times. I have a replica necklace of the cursed gold from Pirate of the Caribbean. It’s one of my favorite replica necklaces I have. It’s a great piece and I honestly love it so much.
Matthew Wells: Growing up, the Ninja Turtles were life. I read the grim and strange Mirage comics and watched the cartoon show religiously. At one of my very first comic conventions ever, I picked up an old 5th printing of the original issue #1. Then, in 2016, I was able to meet Kevin Eastman with the issue in-hand. I’m sure he hears about fans like me daily, but he was incredibly cool, engaging, and patient. He also signed the book. It means a lot to me and is my Grail Piece.
Dave Hisaka: I was fortunate enough to work on a movie with Mark, we all went to SDCC to promote the movie and it was insane. After the panel I grabbed everyone’s name card and at the after party I was giving them back and Mark told me he didn’t want his but would gladly sign it for me. So this was my reward for not sleeping for 72 hours.
