Alex Schomburg the Quintessential Golden Age Cover Artist

Shop Doc’s Designs on TeePublic

Alexander A. Schomburg was a Puerto Rican born commercial and comic-book artist, whose career lasted over 70 years. Stan Lee considered him to be the best cover artist in the Golden Age of comics. For the most part I feel that the only reason to collect comics from that era is only for the cover art. The contents are hit and miss but most of the covers are on point.

Nerdy Decoupage Project

Misty, and I, had some old comics that were more fit for recycling than collecting. We then recently discovered Jennifer Landa’s, of the Force Center Podcast, decoupage video on YouTube,Β https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yqe2-hndN8I, and it inspired us. I found some old comic book advertisements in some 1978 comics, placed them on a an 8Γ—10 mini mounted canvas and came up with a fun decoupage. While I was working on this, Misty took an over-sized issue of Star Wars #1Β (NOT my near mint copyπŸ˜‰) and came up with a 20ΒΌ x 16ΒΌ collage, soon to be decoupaged, piece of awesomeness. It allows us to rescue / reuse / repurpose old comics, plus gives us another outlet to exercise our creativity.

I just had to include this page… “Quiet or Papa Spank!” LMAO!

First Impressions of Ms. Marvel

First Impressions of Ms. Marvel
Ms. Marvel

My first impressions of Ms. Marvel, streaming now. At least the first episode… I adore the young actor who portrays Kamala, she is fresh and adorably fun. Her sense of humor matches my own and she has a struggle as one of the uncool, nerdy kids… which I can relate to. The way her powers are inherited and played out on screen is really cool as well. It seems that Marvel is a tad bit Inhumans shy about the whole Terrigen Mist thing. The whole “elastic” superhero type wears thin on me, and I am not much of a fan. There should only be two of that sort of hero types, Mr. Fantastic and Plastic Man… sorry Elongated man, you should stick to being a detective. I didn’t like Ms. Marvel’s power set when she was introduced, but this version really is a nice new take on that elastic ability.

Atomic Pulp Media Presents…

There’s been a new comic book imprint in town, and I’ve been greedy by not sharing it more. Atomic Comics has a wonderful Bronze-Age feel to the stories it tells. The writer, Christopher Mills, has the ability to tell a great story at a nice pace. I’ve been a fan since his Perils on Planet X comics from a few years ago. The public domain characters he’s taken on have really been a treat to read and I cannot wait until the next drop this Summer. Check out all of Atomic Pulp’s comics on IndyPlanet indyplanet.com/atomic-pulp-media.
