Give-A-Show Fridays: Archie and Dudley Do-Right!

With these slides, we pretty much leave Kenner's 1960s Give-A-Show sets, and get into the 1970s!

By the 10's: Tom Mix Western!

About all I know about Tom Mix is that he's a cowboy hero, and that Harvey Kurtzman's first published work was a panel showing how Tom got out of a fix he was in... so here's issue 10's cover!

Children's Book Theatre: MOTU - Mask of Evil, Part 1!

As promised, it's time for another Masters of the Universe book on Children's Book Theatre, and this may be the last one I have to share (and there was much rejoicing by those of you who don't care for them)!

Probably the first of several posts of Batman stuff, given the sheer volume of it... and some of these may have already appeared in my Batcave Trophy Room blog!

batman_66bookcover.jpg

Book cover from 1966... kind of an odd image for the back cover, isn't it? Nice use of the two limited colors they added to black, but I have to wonder why they didn't pop for yellow along with cyan and magenta? More after the jump!
