As of the time of this blog post Sasha is just about my favorite Comic Book Reviewer on YouTube. Her wit and insights are fun and informative and I am here for it all. Being an old man in the comics realm, who is pretty knowledgeable about pre Y2K comics, I find that I have […]
Dentistry Action Comics: I revel in goofy comic book covers from bygone eras. Don’t be like Superman… don’t forget to floss, kids!
The Golden Age Black Cat. Playing with a Patrick Nagel pose for practice.
The Hostess with the Mostess Ads… Today we are going to take a look at vintage Hostess advertisements in comic books.
