YouTube Wednesday: Thor vs the Destroyer!

 Since one of the main "set pieces" in the new Thor movie is a battle with The Destroyer, let's look at it as dramatized using Jack Kirby's art on the Marvel Super Heroes Show...

Reading Room: NOT BRAND ECHH "He's Mighty Sore!"

With Thor-mania sweeping the blogosphere this week, I thought I'd add to the cacophony with this atypical take on the God of Thunder by co-creators Stan Lee and Jack Kirby (with Frank Giacoia) from Not Brand Echh #3.
And, if you want something even funkier, check out the Origin of the Golden Age Thor at Hero & Heroine Histories™!
(Bet ya didn't know there was a Golden Age Thor!)

The Final Tale of the Silver Age Green Hornet...

It's "Hi-Ho Hornet, AWAYYY! as Britt Reid takes a page from his grand-uncle's Hero Handbook in the final tale of the Silver Age Green Hornet, currently running over at Hero and Heroine Histories™.

Design of the Week--Tender Love Stories

Each week, we post a limited-edition design, to be sold for exactly 7 days, then replaced with another!
This's True Love, as focused thru the lens of the socially-relevant 1970s!
It's a classic romantic comic cover with the added elements of both wild fashions (that are coming back in style!) and Dealing With Important Issues, all available on kool kollectibles including iPhone and iPad cases, t-shirts, mugs, etc.

And, if you want to see the titillating, torrid tale behind the cover, go to our newest blog, True Love Comics Tales™, on Wednesday, to read the entire heart-rending story!
