Christmas Countdown!

And for the last day of the Christmas Countdown, the last two pages of original art from All-New Collectors Edition C-53 I have in my files!

Here's page 64!

And that wraps up this year's Christmas Countdown... we'll see what I come up with next year!

Hmmm... should I post an extra-long Original Comic Art post in honor of it being Christmas today? Well, let's find out...

Here's page 60's art!

Castle of Frankenstein #16, Part 8!

We're on to the letter column!

The letter column has a very nice heading by an artist who signed their name "Ludwig," and features Richard Bojarski's "Baron Von Bungle" at the bottom. Between is a lengthy letter by John J. Fox, Chairman of the Confraternity of Christian DOctrine, who discusses 2001: A Space Odyssey at length.

Christmas Countdown!

Here's the original art for the puzzle on page 59, by Sheldon Mayer (as all these have been)!

By the 10's: Tip Top Comics!

Almost missed the By the 10's for this date! Tip Top was another newspaper reprint title, so let's take a look at what they had to offer!

Issue 10!

Cool Stuff!

Time for Mego's Comic Action Heroes! At least, I hope these are Comic Action Heroes, and not the Pocket Heroes, since I keep mixing them up!

Of the two above, I think the Goblin looks best, because he's naturally two-toned, and Mego took advantage of their manufacturing process!

Unfortunately, I don't have any more pages from that Rudolph story to share... but here's page 58, the first of a bunch of puzzle pages!

By the 10's: Popular Comics!

I don't really know much about this title (other than it at least began with newspaper reprints), so let's just enjoy the gallery of Popular Comics... By the 10's!

We're starting a new volume of photos (volume 6, if you're counting), and we begin with 20 Million Miles to Earth!

Hope I'm not repeating from last time with page 1 from Millie the Model #185 by Stan Goldberg!

Cool Stuff!

Oh, my mistake... last time around, I said this edition would feature Beaneath the Planet of the Apes... but I was wrong... it's Battle For the Planet of the Apes!

Note the art differences between this Italian poster and the US poster above it!

...and this generic Warner Bros. Cartoon poster featuring Bugs Bunny!

Next time around: Comic Action Heroes and more!
