some of my favorite comics 1 I want to take advantage of the blog here to show you some of my favorite comics that I own.  Completely at random, I have chosen one of my faves: Avengers #131, a comic I bought at a flea market as a kid.  Why do I love this one?  The Avengers are prisoners of Kang, who unleashes the first Legion of the Unliving.  I loved the L of the U.  I loved the old, supposedly dead characters being pulled from time to appear in the same comic.  Original Human Torch!  Frankenstein's monster!  Wonder Man! Even smaller, obscure characters.  All that and an early appearance of Mantis.  Cool stuff.  I was even lucky enough to find the following issue at a different flea market and continue the story.

owly plays with the scanner My wife's stuffed Owly was kidnapped and held for ransom. We received this scan of poor Owly, obviously looking scared and distressed.  Please send us lots of money and help us free Owly... or, send us cake.  We like cake.  If you send us cake,  we don't need Owly...

Nation-Wide comics from 1951 Here's an advertisement for the short-lived Nation-Wide comics line of mini comics in 1951.  I will be featuring a Captain Atom issue in a near-future review.  These four titles only lasted 7 issues each.
