Original Comic Art!

Figured I should stop with the "Cool Stuff" part of the titles, just to make it easier if you're looking just for the art!

Random Videos of Geekery: Japanese Spider-Man!

Here's a little over six minutes of the Japanese live-action Spider-Man TV show, which bears a vague resemblance to Marvel's version!

Children's Book Theatre: Road Runner BLB - The Lost Road Runner Mine, Chapter 1!

It's Big Little Book time again on Children's Book Theatre, and this time around, it's The Road Runner in "The Lost Road Runner Mine!" Unlike most other BLBs featuring cartoon characters, this book is based on the Gold Key comic book, which featured Poppa Beep (apparently the Road Runner of the cartoons) with his three sons, all of whom spoke in rhymes.

As you can see, this Carl Fallberg-penned book was published in 1971. Fallberg wrote many comics featuring the Warner Bros. and Disney characters, and also worked at the Disney Studio for a time.

Oh, yes, almost forgot to note that this book has "Flip-It Cartoons" on each right-hand page, which you could flip to see a short piece of animation. I was tempted to scan all those again at a larger size, colorize them, and create a short video from them, but let's face it, that would be a monumental undertaking!

So, let's get into Chapter 1, right after the jump!
