    I thought I pre-ordered it when you announced about it months back. I checked and didn't. Just ordered from your site. Thank you for the reminder! Looking forward to the read!

    Had a very rough day at work at felt defeated. Went to the mail box and a huge surprise that TV#4 was there to great me. I didn't wait and tore into it. This made my day and brought my spirits up. Felt like a kid again. All the cool stuff and the pennant was a nice touch.
    Another huge Thank You!! to the main man Brian and the crew. Magazines like these are so much better than digital versions or seeing on a website.

    Cheers!!

    I'm enjoying each issue more and more. I really liked the pennant, Mad Monster feature, and Action Apeman comparison. But it was the Munsters collection and story that really grabbed me--perhaps because I'm not a huge fan. Great stuff, keep it coming.
    WANTED: Dick Grayson SI trousers; gray AJ Mustang horse; vintage RC Batman (Bruce Wayne) head; minty Wolfman tights; mint Black Knight sword; minty Launcelot boots; Lion Rock (pale) Dracula & Mummy heads; Lion Rock Franky squared boots; Wayne Foundation blue furniture; Flash Gordon/Ming (10") unbroken holsters; CHiPs gloved arms; POTA T2 tan body; CTVT/vintage Friar Tuck robes, BBP TZ Burgess Meredith glasses.

    Appreciative to have some time this weekend to dig in. I'll echo the momentum on this excellent (holy wow monster pennant cool!) issue, and of course happy to share in meaningful/fun ways.

    Do I need Glump? No! Do I want Glump? Yes! The Durham spread is just great.

    The Munsters feature is spectacular and I'm silly smitten with I'm Vampy's dress art. Corey if you're so inclined to continue to share more about Tony, his collection, and your relationship, consider doing so. While the toys rock, those stories/experiences are the things that make what goes on *here* different

    The Mad Monsters extravaganza is exactly what I selfishly hoped for/wanted. T-V has lent itself (inside of B's vision) to chronicle things we love, in a timely and economical format. It takes way more work, but proof that print still matters!

    Bootlegs getting documentation and I dare say, respect. Hell yeah!

    Congrats and thanks to the creative team and all of the contributors. Toy-on!

    So glad everybody is enjoying issue 4.

    Speaking of which, it's now hitting comic shops around the world thanks to our new distributor Diamond.

    This is a really big deal to me, so if you see TV while "out in the wild" Please, please, please send me a photo.

    Also, Issue 5 is in the Diamond Catalog this month, so please tell your LCS about it. Deeply appreciate it.
