       It Came From An Old Comic Book

Haven't posted one of these for a while, so here you go:



From back when video game-to-movie adaptations sucked. Oh, wait, they still suck.

The retro tagline should be: Party of Five meets Iron Chef!

Are you sending $5 to some stranger, based on an ad you found in the back of a comic book?



Then I'm afraid the answer is no. No, you can't be cool.

InfoComics! Digital comics for your computer! Man, these guys were way ahead of their time, back in 1988.

Also, Lane Mastodon totally sounds like a porn star name.



And check out the technical requirements: it works on the Apple II and the Commodore 64/128. Sweet.

That's right, "exciting fashion news" and "muu muu" are used in the same sentence!



(Not sure what comic I scanned this out of...it may have been a Romance comic from the 70s)

So some poor shmuck had the pleasure of opening letters full of people's hair clippings and matching them with a cheap fake beard. Ewww, how'd you like that job?

Check out this awesome rant from the letters column of an old Marvel Fanfare, published back in 1984:

I picked up a few stray issues of Marvel Fanfare at Mid-Ohio-Con, and they both had interesting letters/editorial pages that I wanted to share. First up, a discussion of race and comics with Jim Shooter, with a reference to an old Columbus-based comic convention!

Check out The Governator (TM) in his "hell-bent for leather 'n lead" bracelets! It "takes a man to wear them" alright. Priceless.
