Help finance this project - Buy my posters

Hi Friends. I have just finished an article about the female Captain Marvels for Alter Ego Magazine. It should be out in the October or December issue.

On a related note, I am raising more funds to finish off this project by selling off some things that I no longer need, some pieces of my life that I am leaving behind. I used to collect posters. At every comic convention, every free giveaway, every movie premiere, if they were giving away posters, I would take some. Some had been given to me as gifts, some I even sought out and bought. But now they are just taking up space, cluttering up my room, and not doing me any good. I don't have the wall space for them, and besides, I'm not a kid anymore.

So who wants about 300 posters from the 1980's up to today? Mostly they are movie posters, sci-fi and fantasy, although some of them are for comics, books, games, sports, art, music, and I even have a few that have the World Trade Center in them. I don't have the time to put them all up on E-Bay, so I will accept any reasonable offer, so long as you either come to pick them up or pay for shipping.

You can see photos of them all at http://s846.photobucket.com/albums/ab21/captainzorikh/Posters/

Writing article on Female Captain Marvels

I am currently writing an article for Alter Ego Magazine about the female Captain Marvels; Monica Rambeau, Jerry Ordway's Mary Batson/Bromfield, Phyla-Vell, and Carol Danvers (in the "House of M").

One thing I have noticed, is that each one of them have gone by at least two other superhero or villain names, and that some of them spent the briefest parts of their career as Captain Marvels.

I won't say too much more about them here now, watch for the issue coming out in December.

If your local comic book shop does not carry the magazine, you can order Alter Ego from TwoMorrows Publishing at http://twomorrows.com/. You can find my previous article for the magazine, comparing and contrasting Billy Batson/Captain Marvel with Rick Jones/Mar-Vell/Genis-Vell at http://twomorrows.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=98_55&products_id=728.
