THIS Was The One !

Topic: Comic Book History

THIS WAS THE ONE!

The Comic Book In The Right Column Is What Started Me As A Collector....

 

... of comic books.... Journey Into Mystery #72 from Atlas Comics. (Atlas evolved into what we know as Marvel Comics today, you know, Spider-Man, X-Men etc.)

Before I was given this comic book, all I had been reading were 'funnybooks' with an occasional National (Superman) comic book thrown in.

Journey Into Mystery #72 was cover dated September 1961, which would have made me nine years old.  The title had started with issue #1 in June of 1952, which would have been a month older than I was.  

What made this one issue stand out enough to make me start collecting comic books???

It was the artwork that did it for me. It was when I first truly realized that it was real people that drew these comics, in this case they were Jack Kirby and Dick Ayers, who signed their work 'Kirby/Ayers'. 

Before this comic, all that I was aware of were the 'cookie cutter' artwork in funnybooks of Chilly Willy, Woody Woodpecker, Mickey Mouse, etc.  The art from one artist to another was almost indistinguishable, and no one signed their names to the artwork...   However the artwork of this Journey Into Mystery was so far different from what I was used to, that I immediately looked for more by the Kirby/Ayers team and kept the book in better shape!

I didn't have too long to wait... as Kirby drew Fantastic Four #1 for the November 1961 cover date, which I picked up after seeing Fantastic Four #3 from March 1962 where the FF wore costumes for the first time!

It was unusual that this comic was given to me as it was a 'monster' comic, which probably would have been thought to give me 'nightmares', but I am glad that it was given to me and that it started my lifelong collecting bug of collecting comics!!!

I was fortunate to meet Jack Kirby at the SDCC before he passed away, and to have met Dick Ayers at Wonder-Con and the SDCC a few times through the years.  They were definitely the great guys I thought them to be when I was a kid!!  Thanks Jack & Dick for the memories !!

For those interested in seeing more Jack Kirby comics, we have several in our eBay Featured Store

Bond... James Bond...
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Comic Book Movies

 

James Bond Has Been Featured In Illustrated Format

For many years!   The Secret Agent's adventures are a natural for this format of reading! 

There have been Graphic Novels, TradePaperBacks, Comic Books & Comic Magazines written and drawn about 007! 

We have listed a few items recently received in our eBay Featured Store.

Since most of the materials are comic book adaptations of the James Bond movies, those are usually picked up by movie collectors of Ian Fleming's best known character.

The items that are in lesser grade are priced accordingly for reading copies.

These items are recommended reading for those that enjoy James Bond novels or movies, and would like to see them in an illustrated format.   

Just click on the magazine cover on the top right to see what issues we currently have in stock!

So Now That We Have All You 'Trekkies' Checking Out This Post... 

Want to let you know that we listed some Star Trek Fan Club magazines alongside our Star Trek Comics & Mags! 

Star Trek has had several comic book series published through the years.

Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Malibu Comics, etc. have added greatly to the lore of the Star Trek Universe.

Of course there have been paperback and hardcover novels in printed form.

The Star Trek Club magazines are not that easy to find in SoCal where we are, probably because the TV Shows and the Films have several actors/actresses that are in demand for collectibles.

The issue to the top right is an example of that collectability.  Kim Cattrall starred in an early Star Trek Film, and went on to star in the TV series 'Sex and the City', thus making this magazine issue collectible for both Star Trek Fans & Sex and the City fans.

Just click on the magazine cover on the top right to see what Star Trek media items we currently have in stock!
