LOST Mystery Tales comic now on USB flash drives!

In a flashback on the LOST tv series ep "Cabin Fever", young John Locke had to choose items that "already belonged to him".
One of the items he didn't select was the comic book Mystery Tales.
But, what if the comic cover was available on something a little more a USB flash drive? Would he have chosen it then? Would you? ;-)
Choose from 1GB, 2GB, or 4GB
Or, how about a money/cigarette case, a business card case, or flip-top zippo-style lighter? (Talk about practical, and stylish, too!)

Don't make the same mistake Locke did!
Choose this classic Mystery Tales comic cover on a variety of kool kollectible merchandise now, or be Lost forever, John!

T-Shirts, mugs, magnets, messenger & tote bags, and more available!

WWII Comic Book Cover Tributes to Aviators

Comic books played a major part in shaping the public's impression of both our troops and our enemies during World War II.
Among the classiest were these three beautiful covers for Contact Comics, an aviation-oriented title. Spectacular, intense, eye-catching color highlights these poster-style pieces of art.
Each one paid honor to the aviation division of one of the three armed forces branches. (The Air Force as a separate branch didn't come about until after WWII)

Tribute to the Navy Air Corps featuring F6F Hellcat fighters.

Tribute to the Army Air Force featuring B-24 Liberator heavy bombers.

Tribute to the Marine Air Corps featuring F4U Corsair fighters.

We at Atomic Kommie Comics™ have digitally-restored and remastered them on a line of kool kollectibles which would make perfect Memorial Day, Flag Day, or 4th of July gifts for the WWII veteran in your life.
Choose from t-shirts, mugs, magnets, BBQ aprons, and many other goodies.
(And have a look at the other World War II collectibles we offer at War: Past, Present & Future™ while you're at it!)

The clean-cut all-American Navy hero!

Perhaps the first comic strip to be created as a military recruiting tool, Don Winslow U.S.N. was launched in 1934 to encourage enlistments in the U.S. Navy, which at that point had reached an all-time low. A clean-cut role model for American Youth, Don battled spies, saboteurs, and criminals on the home front, and even made brief forays to both the Atlantic and Pacific theaters of war!
The strip proved to be a big success, not only improving Naval enlistments, but launching a series of novels, comic book series from several publishers, a dramatic radio show, and two movie serials (Don Winslow of the Navy & Don Winslow of the Coast Guard)!
Don finally retired from service in 1955.
Atomic Kommie Comics™ has returned Don Winslow to active duty as part of the War: Past, Present & Future™ line's enhanced World War II section of classic cover art collectibles which also includes Women of World War II and Aviators.
Any of the shirts, fridge magnets, mugs, or other kool kollectibles in these series would make fun retro-style Armed Forces Day or Memorial Day gifts for the veteran in your life!
(I'm sending a set of all four Don Winslow mugs to my Dad, a retired swabbie!)
