I like the idea of this Super-Saver bank, if not the execution! Kind of hard to see what the figural Cap looks like from the box photo.

By the 10's: Hit Comics!

Here's one of those Quality Comics titles whose characters are usually referred to in a joking manner these days, but there's an appeal to these covers, don't you think?

Issue 10! Quality's heroes tended to either be completely covered (as in the Ray or Human Bomb) or showed a lot of skin (as in Black Condor, Doll Man, or Phantom Lady), didn't they? Sure, there are exceptions, but it does feel like they tend toward the extremes, doesn't it?

Children's Book Theatre: Jetsons Coloring Book, Part 1!

Time for a new entry in "Children's Book Theatre," and it's also time for a coloring book in the rotation!

This time around, it's the Jetsons, and the cover scene does not appear in the book as presented! I do think Jane is enjoying herself too much over George's being pulled over, however...

We start out this time around with some more Hulk items, like this Hulk TV tray that used a stock art pose Marvel provided with an all-new background that completely disregards how shadows work...

By the 10's: Gene Autry Comics, Part 1!

Gene Autry was arguably the most famous of the movie cowboys, with the exception of John Wayne (Roy Rogers might be another candidate for the second-place title), so it's no surprise he had his own comic book!
