The Thanksgiving Turkey Cometh...

...and it's going to be tasty, indeed!

Perhaps the only Red Sonja-related comic to never be reprinted after its' initial publication, the adaptation of the 1985 movie was presented in two formats...
a magazine-sized Marvel Super Special, and a two-issue comic book-format mini-series.
As usual, we'll be presenting elements from both versions in our usual serialized format starting on Thanksgiving Day and running daily through Sunday through two RetroBlogs: Secret Sanctum of Captain Video and Heroines!
Don't Miss Them!

Wednesday Worlds of Wonder SEEKER 3000 "HumanKind" Part 1

We Have Already Seen...

...I love these synopsis pages!
They present both the series' concept and the action from the previous issue!

As numerous episodes of various Star Trek series and this never-reprinted chapter from Marvel's Seeker 3000 #3 (1998) show, seizing a human starship is one thing.
Keeping it when facing a motivated crew is quite another matter!
As you might have guessed...
To Be Continued
Next Wednesday!

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: the Secret Saga!

You only think you know the story...
...but the truth is far different!
Yeah, you know the 1940s song and you've seen the 1960s animated TV special every Christmas for as long as you can remember.
But, it's not the original tale of the guy with the glowing nose!
Starting next Tuesday , we're re-presenting a special treat...the rarely-seen prose tale that inspired both the song and stop-motion tv special.
Here's a vintage 1940s cartoon by Max Fleischer that's somewhat closer to the "classic" version...
And be here next Tuesday for the actual illustrated prose tale!

I'm Quitting--Before the Easter Bunny Shows up with a Cannon!

Ah, the Silver Age of Comics!
When situations like the one portrayed above were the norm, rather than the exception.
From Hot Wheels #6 (1970), the last issue of the first comic based on a TV series based on a toy line.
Ironically, it was the Christmas issue...

Long before He-Man, Micronauts, GI Joe and Transformers presented toys as animated action heroes, Hanna-Barbera's Hot Wheels animated series (based on the highly-successful Mattel toys) featured a politically-correct team of teens battling evil while engaging in auto races in nifty cars (with their seat belts firmly buckled, of course)!
Yes, it sounds like Scooby Doo without the annoying talking dog...
