Yeah, I know that was nearly half a year ago, but for some damn reason or another I never did get around to blarging them. And so, here are the "best bits" of all the shit I bought there!
According to the guy who sold this to me, it's the second appearance of the Watcher. Look how fat and crazy he looks! He looks better inside, BTW. I've kind of become obsessed with how people draw him over the years. It's really inconsistent. Sometimes he's super fat, sometimes he's really tall, others he's mega ripped. It changes all the time. as does the shape of his head.
This is probably the best thing I bought there. The Havoc of the Headmen! They may be the worst ever concept for a super villain group ever, and as a guy who collects shitty comics that's saying a lot. Even the name barely makes sense. One guy's a genius with a deformed head, one guy has an ape body and a human head, one guy is a psychic and one guy is a girl! With a crazy morphing red orb for a head!
First page is pretty damn nutty! Why is that deer so mad?
Epic ad for the Spider-Man rock album which I bought for a dollar and blogged about way back. You can listen to several of the mind boggling songs right here. Some great Stan Lee writing in the word balloon too! BTW - I got it for a dollar and it costs 7 bucks here!
Back to the story, Ruby Thursday has a boner for Nighthawk!
Ruby Thursday explaining why she's hotter than all the other girls.
Last time I blogged I blogged about a Flash comic with the ridiculous Chunk! Then I randomly found the comic before that one. What a dumb villain! 80's Flash was awful. Look at the Flashes horribly drawn body!
Ultra, the Multi-Alien! I love this guy! He has a bird leg and a lightning leg!
Lookout for the Jovian Water Blaster!
Very clever Tootsie Pop ad. If you follow the directions, you will see it in the middle of the pop.
Pretty real Sgt. Rock ad! It's Black--say it!
Good old Stan Lee, he loved to put himself in his comics!
But Jack Kirby made it in there, too! And he did the art, so it's amazing.
Not the best What If, but had some outstanding pages. Look at his neck! And look at that beautiful Kirby machinery!
Spider-man versus the Fly! I wonder who will win?
Crappy comic, but an amazing angry J. Jonah Jameson splash page!
I thought it was The Watcher, but it is Alpha the Ultimate Mutant. He's not really that ultimate if I've never even heard of him. Plus he just kinda looks like a bald guy with a weird head. Oh, and look at the Blobs crazy body!
Not the best art, but this page was cool. And the other weird guy with a bald head shows up!
Had a super wacky ending. Mutant babies!
ROM and his crazy toaster gun!
I can't remember if I've blogged this before or not. I feel like I have, but I couldn't find any proof. Anyway, super nutty cover! Batman crazing a race car off a cliff onto Wonder Woman! The perspective is hilarious!
I think he's right. I couldn't beat up Megatron, that's for shore!
Looks a heckuva lot like 7 of 9. I wonder if Star Trek cribbed it.
I also feel like I may have blogged this before. But I don't know, because I drink a lot and all my comics are in different piles everywhere. Anyway, some good art none-the-less.
If you want people to enter your contest, this is how you do it! I'm thinking about entering this, even though it ended years ago!
I would kill for a Hate Monger Christmas ornament! I friggin' love that guy!
Beautiful splash page. Very artistic. Joseph Pedguerey is a good artist.
Another Christmas comic I randomly bought! Santa Clauses in shorts with machine guns!
This was from a Spider-Man Human Torch comic. Amazing spread! Note the Woody Allen poster on the wall! And most of America was not hip to espresso until many years after this. Fancy New Yorkers!
Not much is worse than old DC! Bad art, cramped lay outs, stiff art and dumb. But once in awhile it's worth it just for the crazy factor.
Like the Separated Man whose gross body parts fly around and attack people!
I'm a big fan of flying eyeballs. Especially the ones that cry fire.
I love everything about this panel.
And this is it! The one panel referenced on the cover actually happens! Fuck you, early DC and Marvel! Why you trick little kids into thinking what happens on the cover will happen inside?!
P.S. Watch out for the Headmen! Don't give Headmen a hard time! And don't get Headmen mad!
