Incredible Hulk #109 - November 1968 Issue - Marvel Comics From View Obscura Comics Only 1 available - Order Here The Monster and the Man-Beast!, script by Stan Lee, pencils by Frank Giacoia (layouts) and Herb Trimpe, inks by John Severin. The Hulk rampages across a Chinese military base, swatting away soldiers with a long piece of timber. The soldiers fire a shell from a tank, but the Hulk uses his pole as a lever and upends the tank. More soldiers arrive and open fire on the Hulk, but the bullets bounce harmlessly off him. Annoyed, the Hulk leaps into the air and lands some distance away from the base. As night falls, the Hulk walks through a dark canyon, accidentally setting off a hidden electronic eye. The signal alerts more soldiers and they mount a second attack against him.

Stacey! She's A Very Private Detective!

Image
Stacey is a 1973 exploitation film directed by Andy Sidaris. Half the budget was provided by Roger Corman for his New World Pictures the rest was raised by Sidaris. It was re-released in 1975 as Stacy and Her Gangbusters. The film features an empowered babe in a masculinized action role. She is "a very private detective" in a crime-fighting film. This was the first attempt of Sidaris to produce a film with a female protagonist facing crime. The film thus serves as a precursor to many 1980s films, including those produced by Sidaris himself. In these films "soft" women adopt "hard" personae. It is also a precursor to 1990s softcore films where gender has little to do with a heroine's career, as by that point women's advance into the workplace was no longer an exploitable hot topic. The protagonist is Stacey Hanson (Anne Randall), a private eye and race car driver. She is hired by aging heiress Florence Chambers (Marjorie Bennett) to investigat

Artists David Lopez and David Navarrot exclusively explore Laura Kinney's new role in the Marvel Universe! From Marvel Comics Laura Kinney, the hero formerly known as X-23, goes solo in ALL-NEW WOLVERINE, but her art team works in tandem to kick butt and take names. David Lopez and David Navarrot’s designs for the book reveal a major affection for the character and her world, as well as a deep thought process for their work. Marvel.com: David Lopez, what's the typical way of approaching an issue like for you? David Lopez: I work on a four week schedule basis. First week—maybe week and a half—I read the script and try to understand what the story is and how can I relate it to the reader. It’s all about the concept. Then I doodle little thumbnails on the printed script itself, just doodles that only I understand. After that I move to the computer, and I do a rough sketch of all the pages and place the balloons; leaving room for the balloons is vital. Read the story

The X-Files #7, July 1995 - Topps Comics From View Obscura Comics $4.99 USD - Order Here The first series was published by Topps Comics and ran for 41 issues from January 1995 to September 1998, coinciding with the second through fifth seasons of the television program. In 1996, Topps published X-Files #0, an adaptation of the pilot episode, in order to test the market for a series adapting the episodes of the X-Files TV series. The issue was successful, and X-Files Season One ran for nine issues (August 1997 - July 1998). The series's name was provisional, and Topps in fact intended to adapt every episode, but never got as far as season two. The series was written by Roy Thomas, who would create a first draft for each issue by working off of the episode's script, then watch the actual episode and modify his work to account for changes made on the set.

VAMPIRELLA: FEARY TALES TRADE PAPERBACK

VAMPIRELLA: FEARY TALES TRADE PAPERBACK Nancy A. Collins (Swamp Thing, Sunglasses After Dark) has called upon some of today's finest creative talents - including Gail Simone, Steve Niles, Joe R. Lansdale, Devin Grayson, Stephen R. Bissette, and many more - to celebrate Vampirella's 45th Anniversary by crafting an anthology of twisted tales, bizarre bedtime stories, and fearsome fables in the tradition of the original Warren magazines, each featuring everyone's favorite sexy, kick-ass vampire-turned-monster hunter. While exploring the Transylvanian castle she's recently inherited, Vampirella discovers a strange old book of "Feary Tales" that seems oddly familiar. Upon opening it, she is sucked inside its pages and lands in a weird alternate reality, where she is compelled by a disembodied voice calling itself 'The Storyteller' to live out each of the 'feary tales' if she ever hopes to return to reality.

Macross #1, December 1984 Issue - Comico - Grade Fine From View Obscura Comics $29.99 USD - Order Here Script and editing by Carl Macek. Pencils by Svea Stauch. Inks, colors & production by Phil Lasorda & Gerry Giovinco, with Vince Argondezzi & Dotty Linberg. Robotech comics first officially appeared in print in 1985, though Comico published the first issue of its license from Harmony Gold USA under the Macross name. When Harmony Gold was releasing the first few episodes of its original Macross dub in 1984, it was discovered that Revell already had a Robotech Defenders line of scale model kits that included the transformable Macross mecha. The potential for brand confusion caused concern that Harmony Gold would have problems selling its own transformable Macross toys. Fortunately, Harmony Gold and Revell were able to come to a co-licensing agreement — when producer Carl Macek had the idea to combine Macross with Southern Cross and Mospeada to create an 85-episod

Batman Gets a Steampunk Makeover with This Action Figure

Batman Timeless Steampunk by Hitoshi Kondo Variant Play Arts Kai Action Figure From Entertainment Earth Price: $199.99 - Order Here A Batman will always exist, as the Dark Knight is Timeless. Inspired by the fantastic sci-fi subgenre of steampunk comes this Batman Timeless Steampunk by Hitoshi Kondo Variant Play Arts Kai Action Figure. His Batsuit, with many design aspects inspired by turn of the century steam powered technology, offers a design that transcends time and space.

This figure has a dignified, almost classical aura, emphasized by a five-layer structure of the cape which hearkens back to designs by da Vinci. The technical machinery would not be out of pl

Star Trek/Green Lantern Artist Angel Hernandez opens up about the space-faring epic!

From IDW Publishing Who are your big artistic influences? I could not talk about any specific influences but rather about the many authors who over time serve as a reference in different aspects of the work itself. I believe everything you’ve read, in one way or another influences you, or gives you solutions to each project you are developing. From Kirby to Reis, or Altuna to Ortiz, or Mignola to Mazzucchelli through Steranko or Moebius. From each author, big or small, you learn a lot. Did you grow up as a fan of both Star Trek and Green Lantern? When I was a child, I really enjoyed watching classic films on the weekends, and then I stopped following the franchise for a while because where I lived it didn’t air until the new versions by JJ Abrams arrived. Regarding Green Lantern, he is a character who has always attracted me. He has a very rich universe that is ideal to let your imagination fly. For me this a is a great opportunity to enjoy two of the richest universes in

BATMAN #43 In the start of a new epic, a new villain stalks Gotham City. Will Batman be able to uncover the mystery of Mr. Bloom? After shaking up the Dark Knight’s status quo and elevating former police commissioner Jim Gordon to the role of Batman, writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo are now setting their sights on introducing the Dark Knight’s newest adversary—a mysterious new figure known as Mr. Bloom. Little is known about this slim-and-sinister new baddie other than that he’s able and willing to give superpowers to Gotham’s already dangerous underworld, so we thought we’d ask Capullo and Snyder if they could tell us a bit more. One thing’s for sure, however. You’ll never look at a flower garden the same way again.
