I’m always attracted to these strange one-off movie or novel adaptation comics. But just about any classic science fiction or monster comics usually leave the store with me. The weirder the better. Sure I have plenty of Werewolf By Nights and Frankenstein’s Monsters. Here are a couple of my more random finds.
These three advertised on the back cover are definitely on my list!
The great comic artist and legend Jim Steranko was in attendance at this year’s Dallas Comic Con. I never got around to getting a signature so I thought I’d give him a nod on the blog. I’ve always admired his unique style. Check it out!
With all the Guardians of the Galaxy talk going on these days I felt it appropriate to post some of my Star-Lord comics. I’m still desperately searching for his first appearance in Marvel Preview #4.
Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation) will be portraying Star-Lord in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie by Marvel Studios.
Considered to be some of the first official graphic novels, the Marvel Fireside books offered a way for fans in the 1970s to purchase Marvel stories without the difficult hunt for back issues. Check out these amazing covers!
Finally picked up Man-Thing Volume 1 #1 (1974) a couple of weeks ago at Dallas Comic Con. Gorgeous.
Just for fun, here’s some random Jack Kirby images to help christen the new blog.
To get things going I thought I’d post a photo of my favorite comic currently in my collection. Fantastic Four #45.
Written by Stan Lee and penciled by the one and only Jack (King) Kirby in 1965. The first appearance of Black Bolt and the Inhumans!
