pom pom the dog Here is a pic of the Bringing Up Father dog I mentioned in ep. 32.  I tried to scan in a full strip, but I had difficulty.  So, I give you instead a pic of the creepiest/coolest pet ever.

The Comic Book Attic #32

In this episode, I discuss some crazy, unbelieveable advertisements from early 1980s Charlton comics.  Then, I give a review of a 1926 Bringing Up Father (#10) comic strip collection.  Finally, I recommend these:

BLARM!: http://www.blarmcast.com/

Mysterious Universe: http://www.sohpodcast.com/mu/

Also, there's some music.  Any cover images are copyright their respective copyright holders.  (41:15)

Here's a couple more links I am adding mainly to make my page-jumping easier.  If it helps you too, all the better.

myspace: http://www.myspace.com

comicspace: http://www.comicspace.com

Yes, I am on comicspace.  I have been since its first week or so.  Come visit.

Episode 32 should feature a review of a platinum age issue!  Also, I should be talking about some wacked-out ads from some 1980s Charlton comics.  Stay tuned for that.

Did anyone else see the podcast homepage images on Captain America's viewscreen in Civil War #6?  There were images of Comic Geek Speak's page, plus a Golden Eagle Comics logo.  Also visible was the Bullpen Bulletins podcast page (naturally!).  Here's a link to that podcast:

http://bullpenbulletinspodcast.com/

And that reminds me of the Distinguished Competition's podcasts, which can be found at http://www.dccomics.com/downloads/

And finally, as I state at the end of my shows now, please do your part to educate folks and stop global warming.  We're in denial to the severe threat we face.  Visit http://www.climatecrisis.net/

The Comic Book Attic now has its own email account because I don't want to unintentionally delete any of your mails that could get delivered into the massive spam folder at the desolationbliss account.  The desolationbliss account was an old account that I was using for the show; however, The Comic Book Attic deserves its own address!  Here it is:

Simpler, right?

happy holidays from the comic book attic

As the holidays will most surely keep me busy, in case I don't have time to say so later, Happy Holidays from The Comic Book Attic.

Category:blog -- posted at: 12:07am EDT

Besides my normal new books, I got a stack of back issues during an all day comic shopping excursion with JJ.  Some of the booty:

The Mighty Crusaders (1980s) #3,4; Cerebus Jam #1; a pile of Superboy and the Legion of Super-heroes issues; a pile of old Justice League of America issues; The Comet #1,2; Marvel Superheroes #20; The Phantom (from King Comics) #20; and lots more than I want to type in-- about 30-35 comics in all. 

I was buying JJ comics as his Christmas gift, and I helped him pick out a few.  He got about 20-25 comics.  We drove to a comics shop we had never been to, and boy, did they have back issues... then we drove to a nearby antique/flea building to buy more comics.  Add a happy lunch at Friendlys, and you have one good day.  I also found a few X-mas gifts for the wife... which is good; I am woefully not prepared for the holiday...
