Topic: TV Shows
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3869 - Back in blog #3827, I mentioned meeting John Ellis, (pictured above), who sat with me on a panel at the 2013 WonderCon.
After the WonderCon was over, (we were one of the last panels of the 3-day event), John was one of those that went to the Marriott for a quick bite of dinner and a drink.
I've already review blogged the first DVD volume in this three volume set, and wanted to mention how good this second volume was... Continuing the goodness from volume one of the set. This second volume contained episodes 13 - 24 of the first (and only) year of the TV show.
One of the features of this DVD is that the commercials that were aired with the show were also included in this DVD. It is kind of cool to see those cigarette commericals, as those are no longer allowed on TV shows.
In addition, John is almost finished with Volume 3, so it should be released shortly. He is already taking pre-orders for that volume.
If you haven't seen the TV show before, here is the Wikipedia link to it.
For John's blog, here is the link to that. You can see the info on where to order all three of the volumes there.
I thought I would mention this volume we finished viewing, as yesterday was Memorial Day, as I blogged about in blog #3868. Although Steve Canyon's comic strip ended in 1988, shortly after the death of his creator, Milton Caniff, he lives on via reprints and now this DVD set.
Oh, and there are also several comic book publications that have been printed since 1948 on Steve Canyon. Here is the link to the Grand Comics Database for those.
My thanks again to John Ellis, who turned us on to this great show via his DVD set! Don't miss out on ordering a copy (or all three) for yourself!
