By the 10's: Detective Comics, Part 2!

Now for the second hundred issues of Detective Comics... by the 10's!

detective110.jpg

And Detective 110, like pretty much all the covers you've seen in the previous installment and in this one, feature covers you'll never see in comics these days!

detective120.jpg

Speaking of covers you'd not see these days, here's Detective 120! If the Penguin was on a cover with Batman these days, it'd appear he'd be getting the best of the Caped Crusader, no doubt!

detective130.jpg

Detective 130 here... amazing how often Batman and Robin are turned away from the reader on these covers, isn't it?

detective140.jpg

Detective 140... we've had the Penguin and Two-Face so far, and possibly the Joker... now it's the Riddler's turn to appear on a cover!

detective150.jpg

Detective 150's cover looks like it was prepared without knowing what the contents of the issue will be!

detective160.jpg

A few covers ago, Batman and Robin were in Great Britain... this time around they're in France, on the cover of issue 160!

detective170.jpg

Can you believe it was issue 170 before we had a cover where Batman's identity is about to be revealed?

detective180.jpg

And issue 180 definitely features the Joker! I'd bet he wasn't remotely homicidal in this issue...

detective190.jpg

Issue 190 has that comic book cliche of the hero losing his memory! Sounds like a theme I should've collected way back when I was doing cover themes!

detective200.jpg

Issue 200, and we haven't seen a typical anniversary cover yet! Nice to see the Batplane make a cover appearance, though!

Cool Stuff: More TV Collectibles!

Last "Cool Stuff" for November, and I hope I've been giving you guys plenty of ideas for Christmas present for your fellow geeks!

tv_landgiants_color

Here's a Land of the Giants coloring book I should've posted last time around!

tv_landlost_color

Next up is this Land of the Lost coloring book! I wonder if Sleestak of "Lady, That's my Skull" has this in his collection?

tv_lost_robot

I may not be a fan of the TV series "Lost in Space," but I've always liked the design of the robot! Here's one of the toys based on it!

tv_lost_robotremco

Here's another one... I wonder if both of those were produced by Remco, or if it's just the latter one? I know AHI was manufacturing them in the 70s, so that first one may have been an AHI version.

tv_lostinspace_viewmaster

Lost in Space View-Master!

tv_mork_orkianfun

Here's a Mork and Mindy activity book!

tv_munsters_color

Munsters coloring book! Hey, haven't I mentioned before how many different kinds of coloring books are offered on eBay?

tv_partridge_color
tv_partridge_color2

Two Partridge Family coloring books! Odds are, these will be the last Partridge Family-related items you'll see here!

tv_pufnstuf_kaleidescope

Here's a poster for a Sid & Marty Krofft stage show! Let's see what else we've got for Krofft stuff...

tv_voyage_flyingsub

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea Flying Sub Model Kit! Probably the last version of this one produced before Polar Lights did their reissue.

tv_voyage_subtoy

I believe these two Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea toys came from a Remco playset!

tv_voyage_viewmaster

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea View-Master set!
