2011 Pop Culture 12-Month Calendars are HERE!

One of our favorite types of pop culture collectible here at the Atomic Kommie Comics™ offices are calendars, in particular the multi-page 12-month kind, with a different illustration for each month.

I have over a decade's worth of James Bond 007 movie poster calendars.
Each year the new one adorns the wall over my computer.
When the year is over, I cut it up and use the art the next year as mini-posters to decorate whatever vacation place I rent during the summer.
Besides 007, over the years, I've picked up, or been given, various Star Trek, Star Wars, DC, Marvel, and other licensed property calendars.
I've always enjoyed using them, and often thought of the person who gave them to me!

But, there are pop culture categories and subjects we've wanted in calendar form as presents for others (or for ourselves), but were never produced!
So, we decided to create them ourselves, using the wildest, rarest, kitchiest comic book, pulp magazine covers and movie posters we could find, each image digitally-restored and remastered from hi-rez scans of the original items, NO reprints or low-rez files! (Would we do that to you?)

Design of the Week--Mr District Attorney Logo

Each week, we post a limited-edition design, to be sold for exactly 7 days, then replaced with another!
This week...
One of the surprise success stories for Atomic Kommie Comics™ is our Mr. District Attorney collectibles line.
We thought we'd sell a couple of each design, but the response from pop culture-loving legal eagles has been nothing short of astounding!
We've received a number of requests for an item we haven't made available...yet!
The logo as a stand-alone design!
Never ones to ignore requests (especially from lawyers), we're introducing it as a Design of the Week before moving it to the Mr DA store itself.
If you have a loved one/friend/colleague who is a DA (or an ADA with aspirations) or one who one day will be a DA, why not give them something that shows you appreciate them?

YouTube Wednesday: THE GREEN HORNET "Give 'Em Enough Rope"

If the videos don't work click HERE!
Followers of this blog are well aware of how much of a fan I am of The Green Hornet (and Kato, natch) in his various incarnations.
While the 60s tv series is not yet available on official dvd, it is available on YouTube.
Here's the second broadcast episode "Give 'Em Enough Rope" in three segments.

1953 War of the Worlds Posters

Because Autumn is the season of Halloween, and Halloween makes me think of War of the Worlds, here's a link to a batch of 6 limited-edition posters from the first (1953) movie version of HG Wells' novel.
Photographed from the original posters (not from second-generation repros, tiny pix in books or low-rez internet files), the art has been lovingly-restored and digitally-remastered.
And, best of all, every one of the posters features those really-kool Martian war machines!
And there's even a couple of foreign versions...

Enjoy! ;-)

Fantastic Femmes--Mizuo Peck

New York City native Mizuo Peck's ancestry includes Japanese, Irish, British, and Cherokee, giving her a unique, exotic "look" that's allowed her to play a range of Asian, British, Native American (but not Cherokee), Hispanic, and generic New Yorker characters in film and on tv.

Mizuo's also done off-Broadway theatre, fashion modeling and appeared in a couple of music videos.
Talk about versatile!
No wonder I think she's a Fantastic Femme!
Genre credits include...

Other actresses to play Sacagawea, include...
Actually, Mizuo played a mystically-animated statue of Sacgawea, not the historical figure!
So if you want to know who played the real-life person in film and tv, here's the list from the IMDB.
