Cool Stuff!


After two days of comics-related posts... time for something a little different! How about Battlestar Galactica and Galactica 1980 items to begin with?
Here's a publicity still from the short-lived sequel to BG, and a Space Flight Activity Book below!

Foreign Comic Book Covers!


Time for another gallery of foreign comic book covers! Let's see if I've got some cool ones this time around:

While this issue of Titans is relatively new (reprinting an 80s issue of Dazzler, among other comics I'm sure), I do like the painted cover here. The issue next to it, it took me a few minutes to realize it was Star Wars! If it weren't for the lightsaber, I would've never figured it out!

Covers Redux!


OK, we're back to new content, and I'm actually getting a smidgen ahead finally! Not that far, but some, anyway!

So here's how we play "Covers Redux": I post two Marvel Comics covers, one of which is from the original printing of a story, and the second from the reprint in one of Marvel's many reprint books of the 70s. Then, I list all the details that I can spot that were changed from the original cover, and in the comments, you add whatever you spot that I missed!

I don't usually count recoloring (other than to mention if I prefer one or the other), but do point out new or moved captions, word balloons, and the like, as well as art changes.

First up is Sgt. Fury #61 and the reprint from issue #157. Other than recoloring, it looks like the reprinted cover is slightly enlarged, making for some cropping on the sides and bottom. Some details have been lost when the stat was made, obviously.
