I'd actually forgotten I had a picture of this... kind of a puzzle in comic panel form, in which you can reorder a comic story! Nice idea, but I think one would get bored of it fairly quickly.
Interesting mixed bag of stuff in this lot... I've seen that French Marvel Stamps set offered on eBay twice so far!
I wish I had a better photo of this 1978 Hot Wheels Silver Surfer van -- and I'm figuring that Mattel was producing this as a van that someone who liked the Surfer would drive, not a van that the Surfer himself is supposed to be driving!
Nice four-pack of Buddy L vehicles tieing in with the Secret Wars imprint here! Of course, only the Captain America motorcycle makes a lick of sense...
How silly is this? I mean, I can understand the classic 1970s AHI Spider-Man parachutist, because Spidey's made his own web-parachutes in the comics... but this basket parachute thing is just ridiculous!
I love the classic Marvel art on these Secret Wars puffy stickers!
I'm not sure what I should focus on -- the silly whistle flash concept, or the fact that Hercules, Iron Fist, Hawkeye, Storm and Nighthawk are on the card!!!
Maybe I should've saved this photo for next December's Christmas posts? Naaaah.
And we're up to page 52 of issue 5 of Quasimodo's Monster Magazine!
And as I said before, this article is a review of Heroes of the Horrors, the author of which was interviewed earlier in the issue!
It shouldn't surprise you that the book gets a positive review. Almost cut off on the cover reproduction is the note that Calvin Thomas Beck was the editor of competing monster mag Castle of Frankenstein!
I've no idea if the review ran short, or what, but it does seem odd tat the Chris Lee Dracula photo ran from the last page of the review and onto the subscription offer on page 57!
And as I also promised, here's pages 58 and 59, with Monster Mesh Puzzles! Word lists, answers, and mystery words will follow here in the coming weeks, so if you want to give this a try, feel free!
Next time: The Stepford Wives, and Quasimodo's Mail Bag!
