Old Comics: "The Plotters!"



Here's a brief item from the paranoid days of 1953. The artist signs himself "Shelly"...I think it's Sheldon Moldoff (best known for the Golden Age Hawkman comics) and I have no idea who wrote it.

Read the story before you click on "comments"...there will certainly be discussion of Plot Points.

Old Comics: "The Masters!"



This is a perfect example of a situation which was to be repeated endlessly in 50's and 60's Science Fiction comics: Aliens come to the Earth with stern intentions, only to change their plans suddenly. Some of these stories may be better; few are more charming than the one seen here. I would LOVE to know who wrote the script; the art is by Master cartoonist Mort Drucker.

I hope you enjoy..."The Masters!"

Old Comics: "The Iron Lady"



No, it's not SHOWGIRLS, THE ROBOT YEARS...just an oddball story from 1952. No idea who wrote it. The art is by Al Luster, who liked drawing people with stumpy, distinct teeth.

I hope you enjoy..."The Iron Lady"

"In the Dead of Night"



This is a pretty good story from 1951, written by the versatile Hank Chapman and drawn in quaintly polite style by Pete Tomlinson. It first appeared in the eleventh issue of SUSPENSE, one of the few Marvel titles licensed from another Entertainment compay (CBS radio, in this case) and this is one of the few comic stories I've seen which appears to have been written intentionally with that series in mind. It has a "radio narrative" feel.

You are getting sleepy...you are enjoying this story...



Short, but cute! This is a silly story from 1953, drawn by Russ Heath, and written by Stan Lee himself. Well, actually, I USED to think it was a silly story until I saw a Derren Brown TV show in which he kind-of pulls off the same trick (though he didn't use a 3D film and no money was misplaced, to the best of my knowledge.)

I hope you enjoy..."3-Dimensions!"

It's time to put on makeup! It's time to dress up right!



Another silly story! This one is from 1961, drawn by Steve Ditko, and written by Stan Lee himself. But this adventure is more reminiscent of THE MUPPET MOVIE than SPIDER-MAN.

I hope you enjoy..."The Ice-Monster Cometh!"

The return of Big Poppa Pump

According to Meltzer, WWE's finally gone ahead and signed Scott Steiner. I'm not sure this is such a great idea. He's a talented performer with a great look, but he's also 40 and coming off of serious health problems. Not to mention, he's out of his fucking gourd. This could end up turning into another expensive lesson for Vince, a la Hall and Nash.

I'm not sure of the timeline, but I wonder if this contributed to them letting Ron Waterman go. Obviously, they don't need a guy who looks like BPP if they have the genuine article.
