The Horror...the Horror (comics, that is!)

Monster Crime!
Now that's a title!
Yeah, they knew what we budding juvenile delinquents wanted back in the 1950s!
As you might have guessed, the upcoming Halloween holiday has inspired the Atomic Kommie Comics™ crew to re-present to our Horror Comics of the 1950s™ section for your All-Hallows Eve garb and goodies!
And, what titles do we have at our kool kollectibles kollection?
Besides the aforementioned Monster Crime, there's Tales of Horror, Horror from the Tomb (see a trend?), Beware! (with a Frank Frazetta cover!), and The Clutching Hand, The Hand of Fate, Horrific!, Weird Adventures, Baffling, Challenge of the Unknown, Terror Tales, Haunted, The Beyond, Weird Terror, Weird Mysteries, Weird, Diary of Horror, WitchCraft, and Eerie!
Plus collectibles with our ghoulishly-graphic, viscerally-vintage Horror Comics of the 1950s™ logo!
Be the envy of all the kids on your block this Halloween with black or white t-shirts, tote bags for your candy, and mugs, magnets, buttons and other perplexing paraphernalia!

Fantastic Femmes--Brenda Song

Note: this page has been updated with NEW info HERE!
Brenda Song began her career as a child fashion model and quickly moved into tv commercials.
Then, after appearing in guest roles on a variety of tv series, she landed in the Disney talent pool where she was groomed for pop-culture stardom the way many other young performers like Lindsay Lohan, Hillary Duff, Miley Cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens previously had been.
Like them, she became a supporting player in a number of Disney Channel tv movies and ongoing series including The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and Phil of the Future, before being given a "breakout" lead role of her own--Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior, for which the black belt-holding actress did most of her own fight sequences!
While it hasn't generated the resulting media frenzy of, say, Hannah Montana, Wendy Wu did well enough to warrant a sequel and possible ongoing series.
Trivia: Brenda supports charitable causes including St. Jude's Childrens' Hospital and the eco-oriented Disney's Friends for Change.
Genre appearances include...
Boogie Town (Natalie)
Macy's Presents Little Spirit: Christmas in New York (Paige)
Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior / Wendy Wu 2 (Wendy Wu / performer "I'm Not That Girl")
American Dragon: Jake Long (Tracey)
Holidaze: the Christmas That Almost Didn't Happen (Treat)
Phil of the Future (Tia)
Ultimate Christmas Present (Samantha Elizabeth "Sam" Kwan)
100 Deeds for Eddie McDowd (Sariffa Chung)

Design of the Week--Judy of the Jungle

Each week, we post a limited-edition design, to be sold for exactly 7 days, then replaced with another!
This week...
Since our new Jungle Girls calendar has received such an amazing response, we decided to move up our plans to roll out some of the new images from it on kollectibles including messenger bags, t-shirts, et all with the one that has the most crossover appeal for both males and females.
Presenting...Judy of the Jungle!
One of a plethora of animal skin-clad heroines who popped up after World War II, Judy had several things going for her...
1) A name you could actually pronounce! Most jungle-based heroines had names like Rulah, Vooda, even Zoot!
2) She was a redhead, making her visually-distinctive from the mostly-blonde crowd!
3) Her covers, illustrated by noted Golden Age artist Alex Schomburg using the alias "Xela", were paintings, rather than pen-and-ink art, giving them a unique "look"!
So, if you're looking for a strong role model for a young lady, or you just want to look at a powerful, scantly-clad woman in action, the Atomic Kommie Comics™ crew sez you can't go wrong with...Judy of the Jungle!

Small Emergency...

Due to technical difficulties with a supplier, I'll have to spend the next day or so upgrading my Squidoo pages, so no Hero History or Fantastic Femmes or even a crassly-commercial plug today.
See Ya Tomorrow!
