A Hot Pair for a Scorching Summer!

It's been a broiler here in Ol' Sunny Southern Cal, so I've decided to acknowledge that fact by posting a pair of red hot items. First up, The Flame, a Golden Age hero from Fox Publications. This guy predated the Human Torch and had some pretty cool, er hot, superpowers. You'll find him on the main page. Then, as a special treat, scroll to the bottom and click over to the Gallery page where you'll find Alfredo Podesta's reworking of my Human Torch model. His work is really excellent and I hope to be able to post more.

"Born on Monday..."

...well, Friday, actually :)

Your response to the Captain America playset was very favorable, so here's hoping our new diorama will bring you even more joy! It's a sort of "What If?" tableau, featuring the Golden Age Green Arrow and Speedy squaring off against ol' Solomon Grundy circa 1944. This match-up did happen, but not in this era, so it's lot's of fun!! Get it HERE.

Once again, thanks go out to my partner JP Cote for his excellent work!

Take a Look at "The Vision!"

Here's a little gem from the able pens of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. Direct from the "World of Smoke and Mists" comes the interplanetary crime fighter Aarkus - Destroyer of Evilaka "The Vision." This is one of Simon and Kirby's earliest efforts, predating Captain America by four months. The character ran in Marvel Mystery Comics for some 35 issues - a pretty healthy run by GA standards, and has even appeared in more recent publications. You can get him HERE.

A Patriotic Pair for the 4th!!

Here's a little fun for the Fourth. Two classic characters with a patriotic theme: Liberty Belle and the Fighting Yank!  Hope you all have a great holiday, and who knows? Maybe in-between the barbeque and the sparklers, you might have time to build one of these little beauties. I mean, come on, you gotta love a character who fights crime in a tri-corner hat and pilgrim-style buckled shoes! Get them both HERE.
