Me and Marnin and my wife and chicken parm

Had a great dinner at a wonderful Italian restaurant in Great Neck, NY Saturday night. The legendary comic dealer and fan Marnin Rosenberg was our host.

We chatted about the history and politics of the hobby... and after dinner, Marnin opened the vault and let me hold books I could only dream of owning. Super high grade copies of early Marvels, Golden Age pedigrees... a jaw dropping exposition of newsstand fresh books.

My wife was even tolerant enough to reserve any sarcastic comments and eye-rolling. All it took was a wonderful dinner capped off with cannolis.
