It's Cyber-Monday, the supposed biggest Internet Shopping Day of the season. I'd appreciate it much if you'd take a look at our rare movie and TV selection for those on your list...particularly if they enjoy Westerns!
And while we're at it, we still haven't sold the ultra rare original 5 volumes of Grant Morrison's ZENITH, price lowered to $275.00 postpaid! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested!

My pal Craig Yoe seems to be everywhere lately, almost as if he were Santa Claus! And in a way, he IS! Craig and Clizia Gussoni are the brains behind Yoe Books' passionate drive to collect and revive long-neglected comic books and strips.
Check their site for details on all of Craig's wonderful volumes and order a few for Christmas for yourself or for the comics fans on your list! No one will be disappointed!

A long time ago on this blog, we ran the above panels from a 1950 Captain Marvel, Jr. story published only in France and illustrated by the great ASTERIX artist Albert Uderzo. In 2009, it was announced that the story would be collected along with other early Uderzo works. If it ws, I missed it, but I have gathered a few more pages and pieces of artwork from it, picked up at various blogs and websites over the years.
The villain of the piece is rather obviously visually based on the Lev Gleason character, Mr. Crime...
or at least on the same character HE was based on, Mr. Coffee Nerves from the Postum Sunday strip ads of the day.
