Hi all. First, I want to say that even though I mentioned that I'd be doing a Cinematic Attic blog...I won't. I know I will not have time. Hopefully, someday I will be able to do a movie podcast. I even have the theme music thought up...
Second, I have a few links I am adding simply for my own convenience for when I am on this page. (It happens a lot somehow...)
I also have FINALLY purchased my own scanner. I know, I know, I'm way behind the times. My first scanned and posted image was the last blog's Pom Pom pic. I can now post entertaining images from all the oddball comics I read...
Which brings me to my latest passing focus in my ongoing comic education. Last, it was The Mighty Crusaders. Now, it is corny romance comics. Yes, romance comics. They are a RIOT! They also contain art from all the greats, and due to the fact that they are romance comics, few folks are familiar with those eras of their artwork. For example, I just read a DC romance comic drawn by Gene Colon. Great art... ALSO, those postmodern art pieces that mimic the covers of those old romance comics mimic some really nice covers. I am going to be doing a show on romance comics soon.
Here's the cover of one of the comics I will be discussing (Super DC Giant #S-21). The cover is FANTASTIC!!! Just for the record, this comic is scarce (20-100 copies known to exist) and I got it for under a dollar in a box of random books a dealer was trying to get rid of. My guess is that he saw it was just another 1970s romance comic, so he tossed it in this box. This scarce book lists in Overstreet for $475 NM. To, me it's a beautiful looking comic that is incredibly scarce and quite a treasure. Any cover images are copyright their respective copyright holders.
