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.
Or maybe it's the newswoman's embarassment at the cameraman's angle for the "She-Hulk poses."
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!"

I recently dove into this past, and here's my Guide for new viewers:
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.
Walt Disney and The Good Duck Artist
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.
If you'd like a quick tour of the career of the man who, because he worked in an age before printed credits, was known as The Good Duck Artist, all you have to do is click this link: Disney Ducks!
