World of Strange
Read about my book!!!!!
|January 30th, 2011|
|In years past, on this particular date, I've
made note of the fact that today, January
30th, is my birthday. Once again, that is
true. Happy to be here. Sorry--not enough
cake to go around (hey, with me, there never
In lieu of a present, anyone care to buy a card (or three)?
I'm always trying to come up with some new types of pics for these midget masterpieces, and I think you'll catch on pretty quickly as to the pair of approaches I've embarked on here (with the second being rather appropriate, given the announcement found in today's opening paragraph).
Here's your Ebay link, friends!

|Over at Robert Goodin's exemplary website,
Covered, he's just posted my redo of Bob Brown's
cover for 1960's TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED
#53--take a look!
Thanks for the good wishes, Robert--and thanks for doing such a bang-up job!

|If you found yourself deep in the bowels
of the earth fighting The Mole Man--like
the Avengers did back in January of 1965
on the cover of their 12th issue (originally
drawn by Jack Kirby and Chic Stone), well,
YOU'D be pretty relieved to have a charter
member that carted around an enchanted hammer
with him wherever he went too! Thanks, Thor!
If you wanna see my redo way larger--not to mention the original--click the accompanying image. Just try and avoid starting a cave-in, wouldja? That hammer ain't THAT good!...

|I'm proud as proud can be to announce that
an interview I did a few months back with
the gang over at Fandom Planet has been chosen
to be rebroadcast representing the year's
best Q&A! That either says a lot about
me--or the overall paucity of their guest
roster. Shhh--let me have MY illusions, okay?
Thanks fellas, and I hope to come on for
a follow-up before too long!
Here's the link if you missed it the first time, or want to hear it again (yeah, right...)!

|Ever wonder what it might look like to find
Spider-man fighting alongside Dr. Strange
against The Sinister Six in a mystical dimension--all
with knee squiggles?
Wonder no more!

|I watched one of my all time favorite movies with daughter Julie last night, Billy Wilder's 1942 comedy, "The Major And The Minor" (his American directorial debut). 30 year old Ginger Rogers seemed just as convincing--and absolutely adorable--pretending to be a 12 year old as she did to me when I first caught this very funny flick at age 10! Highly recommended!|

|HAPPY 2011, EVERYONE!
And HAPPY 8th ANNIVERSARY to HEMBECK.Com!!
|We launched this site back on the first day
of 2003, which makes this particular corner
of the internet eight years old! Wow! It
often seems both a much longer AND a much
shorter time--guess that's my own personal
time paradox, huh?
These days, as opposed to earlier times, not a whole lot of written blogging is posted here abouts. My apologies. But there ARE quiet a few pics to feast your eyes upon--and even if I AM constantly trying to peddle 'em to the highest bidder, hey, the looking is free, so I hope you enjoy the window shopping!
Please stick with us in 2011, friends--we may very well have a few surprises up our sleeves!
