Something Else from SoonerCon -- What Is It?

That's kind of a rhetorical question. I know that this is a copy of Issue #1 of the newest JLA comic, cover-dated June 2007. It's a "sketch variation" cover, or some such.

My question is, is it worth a million bucks or something? Let me know, if any of you guys are big JLA folks. I mean, I read and buy the new JLA, but differing cover art don't matter much to me.
See ya soon!

Super Postage from SoonerCon

Another nifty thing I bought at SoonerCon was, according to the sticker on the back, a "DC Comics Super Hero Superman Stamp Art-WILL HA".

The top part is a bit 9x12 repro of one of the Superman stamps, with art drawn by a young Curt Swan.

The lower part of the thing is a first-date-issued envelope and canceled stamp.

The only way it could be better is if the canceled stamp were of Kal or Kara!

Anyway, the best part was, it was "cover price"! That is, I bought this from a USPS booth in the Exhibitor's Hall at SoonerCon, at "list price," that is $19.99. And not even any sales tax! Spiffy, huh?

By the way, a month or so ago I set aside a bunch of stuff to scan and/or comment about here on the ol' Super Blog. As soon as I can once again FIND THE STUFF, we'll have a lot more posts to share.
