By the 10's: House of Mystery!

This next by the 10's features a DC "mystery" title of sorts that really changed course a few times... House of Mystery!

hom010.jpg
Issue 10 here, and it's pretty tame stuff, as you can see.

hom020.jpg
Issue 20 features Mister Mortem... whom I've never heard of before! While it appears from this cover DC was trying to create a recurring character, I can't find any record that he appeared anywhere other than this issue!

hom030.jpg
Issue 30's cover is pretty bizarre (well, I guess not so bizarre for the Silver Age)!

hom040.jpg
Issue 40 -- wow, who would've thought a Scrabble knockoff would be so deadly?

hom050.jpg
Issue 50 here, but I'm not going to mention the cover... just point out the blurb on the bottom, "I rode the Man O' Mars!" -- now, that's an out-of-context phrase that would have a double meaning as this series progressed, eh?

hom060.jpg
Issue 60... what did he see in that yellow cloud?

hom070.jpg
Issue 70, and we've gone from stories of suspense to pure sci-fi!

hom080.jpg
Issue 80... did Robby Read feature this Big Giant Hand in Dial B for Blog?

hom090.jpg
Issue 90... wow, what a weird cover, eh?

hom100.jpg
Issue 100, and that's a pretty strange creature there, isn't it?

What will the next 100 issues bring? Wait and see!

Castle of Frankenstein #9, Part 9!

castlefrank09_58
And we're up to page 58, featuring the conclusion of the Victor Buono article and a rather kinky cartoon!

castlefrank09_59

Page 59's ad for the Frankenstein Chamber of Horrors is always fun to look at, isn't it?

castlefrank09_60

An amusing cartoon there on page 60, isn't it? This is another jump page from earlier in the mag, as you can see.

castlefrank09_61
castlefrank09_62
castlefrank09_63

I can't see how anyone with money to spend could've managed not to order something off of pages 61 through 63!

castlefrank09_64castlefrank09_65

Page 64 and 65 are the Back Issue Department... I'm sure back then, these prices seemed expensive, but today, they'd be considered dirt cheap!

castlefrank09_66

Another page of goodies advertised here on page 66...

castlefrank09_67

castlefrank09_68

And with the inside and outside back cover, that's a wrap! Wow, I guess next week's installment will start a new magazine!

Cool Stuff: Bullwinkle Stuff!

Let's see what kinds of Bullwinkle stuff I have for you this time around, eh?

bullwinkle_bank.JPG

Here's a nice figural bank... wish I had a bigger, sharper photo of it to share!

bullwinkle_bubblebath.JPG

I like this Bullwinkle figural bubble bath container, too!

bullwinkle_colorforms.jpg

If I liked to collect Colorforms stuff, I think I'd want this Bullwinkle set!

bullwinkle_puzzle

This Bullwinkle puzzle is a bit off-model, but still fun!

bullwinkle_puzzle60

This 1960 puzzle is delightfully off-model... reminds me of the Golden Books of the era, and I'm sure the same artists were involved!

bullwinkle_puzzle71

This 1971 puzzle seems to indicate that the colorist didn't know that Boris and Natasha should have white skin!

bullwinkle_sleepingbag

This sleeping bag is another Bullwinkle item I wish I had a larger, sharper photo of to share!

bullwinkle_truvue-rollashow

This Bullwinkle Tru-Vue Roll-A-Show is another example of movie viewers that used a cassette with a film loop!

bullwinkle_uke

I have no idea why someone thought a Bullwinkle ukelele was a good idea... well, maybe Bullwinkle played one in an episode?

Next time: Miscellaneous stuff!
