Follow this link (or the link on the lefthand column site map) to discover film, news clips, and classic advertisements tracing the history of Collector's Edition, The Comic Book Store, and the comics industry in general over the last 4 decades!

You'll find every video on the website, plus many new videos showing major events like the censorship battle with the state legislature, the Death of Superman, and the Bankruptcy of Marvel Comics.

This month's featured blast from the past is She-Hulk's visit to Little Rock back in the Nineties!
This video scored over 1,000 views in its first week,
and only 35% of those viewers came from the United States.
So either the picture of She-Hulk is hooking foreign viewers,
or the segway about a cow chip tossing contest has them wondering about recreational activities in America.
Maybe both.
Or maybe it's the newswoman's embarassment at the cameraman's angle for the "She-Hulk poses."

Dr Who Astounding Stories origin
This book is real and unaltered. The top quote is from the text.
The bottom quotes are some of the most common from the era of the Second Doctor, Patrick Trouton.
It was a runing gag that Jaimie, a medieval Highlander whom Doctor had saved,
would start each new adventure with a brogue variation of:
"Doctor! Would you look at the size of that thing."
At some point soon after, they were running for their lives.
All of the Doctors often advised; "Run! Run!"

Doctor Who and Michael


If you've never been introduced to Doctor Who, or only seen shows from the New Millennium, the older mythos can be difficult to know where to start -- with so many decades of television history to choose from!

I recently dove into this past, and here's my Guide for new viewers:

Part One dealt with the first quartet of Doctors.
Part Two examines the second quartet.

I've started a new section on the History of Comics. For the initial overview of how comics are made, start here.

Tarzan of the Apes is the first subject. Tarzan is a character who has been an integral part of the comics industry since the very beginning of the artform.

Tarzan's birthright isn't the only thing British about him. Tarzan comics have a very long publishing history in the foreign language known as the King's English. Explore here:

Funnnies #36 Marvel Conan #1
Tarzan wasn't the first creation of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Before the apeman, he created the greatest swordsman on two worlds:
John Carter of Mars!

This character ushered in the era of Sword & Sorcery.
He was the first, and mightiest of all the barbarians:

Conan the Barbarian!

Gullivar of Mars

Written in the Nineteenth Century, Phra the Phoenician was the first immortal in modern literature. While he was never adapted into comics, another creation by Phra's creator Edwin Lester Arnold was. Gullivar Jones was modern literature's first interplanetary explorer.

But that doesn't mean that Phra didn't have a history of illustration all his own. To view the original art plates from when Phra was first published in an 1890 London newspaper, visit Phra the Phoenician.

Tarzan has inspired many imitators over the decades.

The next Comics History page is devoted to the legendary Carl Barks.

Carl Barks was always one of my favorite storytellers, being both an exceptional artist and extraordinary storyteller. It was a rare combination.
