Design of the Week--All-True Detective Cases

Each week, we post a limited-edition design, to be sold for exactly 7 days, then replaced with another!
This week, we get as far away from the cute Easter designs of the past few weeks as we can with a retro-kool graphically-bloody vintage comic cover from one of the best series of the 1950s, All-True Detective Cases!
Just the thing for your Spring-time wardrobe, eh? ;-)

The "Green Hornet Chronicles" is coming!

The first Green Hornet prose book since The Green Hornet in The Infernal Light and Green Hornet: Case of the Disappearing Doctor in 1966 is finally going to the printers!
The Green Hornet Chronicles is an anthology of new stories set in the continuity of the 1966-67 tv series and includes...
Introduction by TV’s Green Hornet, Van Williams!
A story "fragment" by Harlan Ellison, as he teams the Green Hornet up with The Phantom!
Stories by two writers known for their work on the NOW Comics Green Hornet- Ron Fortier and James Van Hise!
Afterword by the man who designed and built the tv Black Beauty, Dean Jeffries!
There are several editions, including hard and softcovers with different covers.
My favorite is the one shown above by noted pulp-style artist Glen Orbik.
A Limited Edition hardcover includes bonus material: Harlan Ellison’s “liner notes” on his Green Hornet-Phantom team up story, and also the only-played-once origin of The Green Hornet radio episode is turned into a thrilling prose story by Anthony Tollin!
It's due out in early June.  Place a pre-order now...

Today at noon, Our Newest Blog goes Live...Hero & Heroine Histories!

Today, we launch our newest blog, Hero & Heroine Histories to accompany our sister blog, Femmes Fantastique!
Like FF it'll be weekly (perhaps more frequently, as my schedule allows), featuring both new histories and updated entries from our popular series on this blog.
The first entry is 1950s commie-fighter The Avenger.
So, bookmark it or load the RSS, and check it out often.

MORE Green Hornet Designs Added!

After "testing the waters" with several classic Green Hornet designs in our Design of the Week rotation, we've decided to add two of them to our permanent collection!
They're already on clothing, and we'll be adding them to accessories like bags, mugs, etc., in the next day or so!

Preview--Kato: Origins #2 Cover

Another moody, pulp-style cover by Francesco Francavilla, from his blog.
It's for Kato: Origins #2, due out in June.
Why they don't give this guy a whole Green Hornet book is beyond me!
He's already proven himself with Zorro!
