Reading Room BLAST-OFF! "Danger! Atoms!"

Some stories need little extrapolation...
...such as this never-reprinted short by writer/artist Howard Nostrand from Harvey's Blast-Off! #1 (1965)
Cute, eh?

Friday Fun BIG APPLE COMIX "Lotsa Yox featuring Rodger Farnsworth USAAF"

With Kong:Skull Island coming out on disc last week...
...we nostalgically flashed-back to the good old days, when cinematic giant apes had to come to NYC and climb whatever the tallest building was at the time!
But, because artists Herb Trimpe and Wally Wood insisted on including a nude woman in the strip, you'll have to see this never-reprinted classic in out "brother" blog Not Safe for Work Comics!

Reading Room THE UNEXPECTED "Monstrous Crime"

As DC Comics ended it's non-super-hero anthologies...
...sometimes unused stories for one title were used as filler in other books!
Originally-produced for the sci-fi anthology Time Warp, this never-reprinted story ended up in the back of issue #207 (1981) of the DC horror anthology The Unexpected.
Tor Infante (aka Nestor Infante/Ernesto Infante) illustrated only 11 war and horror stories in the early 1980s, all for DC, before disappearing from the American comics scene until the 1990s, when he took on multiple assignments for Continuity Comics including Ms Mystic and Megalith, as well as KnightHawk, which found a new home at Acclaim Comics after Continuity folded.
Infante passed away in 2011.

Reading Room WHAM-O GIANT COMICS "Tor and the Man from Aeons"

At 14" wide by 21" high, this 52-page magazine is considered the biggest comic book ever published!
Produced by the Wham-O Toy Company in 1967, this one-shot featured a plethora of never-seen again characters!
Each of these pages by long-time comics Lou Fine is the equivalent of four regular comics pages!

Wham-O intended to do this project as a quarterly book sold in toy stores and via mail subscription, though how they were going to send the comic to home mailboxes without folding it is unknown!
Only the first issue was published, and the various characters (who may have been intended to be future Wham-O toys) disappeared into pop culture oblivion.
