|It's Iron Man versus The Titanium Man on
Gene Colan and Frank Giacoia's cover for
1967's TALES OF SUSPENSE 93--Magneto is nowhere
in sight! (Ancient Wings reference, Marvel
AND McCartney fans!...)
Click the image to see the original as well as a larger version of my own take--and hey, say "hi" to The Crimson Dynamo when you see him, okay?...

|Attention upstate New Yorkers!
I'll be attending the Albany Comics Con this Sunday, the 24th, along with a whole passel of other fine folks!
Here's more complete info.
Past shows have been tremendous fun, so if you're at all nearby and dig the comics, I strongly suggest you stop by!! See you there!!
If you CAN'T make it, well, we're still on the ebay, hawking our wares. Here's a quartet of cover redos, card size--see if you can guess WHICH one I'm posting in the spirit of Halloween.
And here's the ebay link...

|Turns out going up against The Man Without
Fear on Jack Kirby and Vince Colletta's cover
for 1964's DAREDEVIL #3 wasn't nearly as
wise a move as The Owl originally thought.
Fact is, it was strictly for the birds!!

|Well, I'm (mostly) recovered from our now
annual Columbus Day jaunt to visit daughter
Julie over her college's four day weekend.
Niagara Falls, The Corning Glass Museum,
a wine tasting tour--not to mention four
different lodgings in as many nights (gotta
make reservations earlier next year...) made
for a quartet of fun if hectic days! But
now Lynn and I are back home, in front of
the computer and at the drawing board, which
can mean only one thing--
Grab a gander, guys and gals!...

|Gale Storm starred as "My Little Margie"
from 1952 until 1955, but the Charlton Comics
version ran from 1955 all the way until 1964,
incongruously ending with the fifties sitcom
icon making goo goo eyes over none other
than The Beatles on the cover of the 54th--and
Check out Jon D'Agostino's original cover and a larger take of my version as well by clicking the accompanying image.
Imagine if "I Love Lucy" comics were still being published in '64? How'd you like to see The Rolling Stones being joined by a daffy redhead on stage at The Tropicana? Ai yi yi indeed!...

|First up a quick TCM tip: back in 1981, in
Danny Peary's fine book, "Cult Movies",
I first read about an intriguing film called
"Gun Crazy" (1949, aka "Deadlier
Than The Male"). I finally managed to
see it a few short months ago, and while
it's clearly not "Citizen Kane",
it actually exceeded my expectations. It's
getting another TCM broadcast tonight at
midnight, eastern time, so if you've any
sort of affinity for noir crime films, you'd
be well advised to tune in.
And now, more cards!
Charlton Action Heroes, Freedom Fighters, random Marvel stalwarts, and Ultra the Multi-Alien, among others!! Take a gander, guys and gals!
|If you see something here that you like enough
to want to actually fork over cash for, well,
here's access to our current Ebay auctions!
