It's the Phillipino lot back again, and by crikey, they are blimmin' wonderful squire ! Reminds me of when I was a nipper, totally absorbed in these comics -- blimey I can smell the paper now, and remember the rain trickling down the windows, and the crackly sound of my scratchy Led Zeppelin records accompanying my mystic reading journey ! BTW, has anyone bought the new HOUSE OF SECRETS PART TWO SHOWCASE collection yet ( just released a week or so ago ) ? Wondering what the verdict was? I have PART ONE, and it's very patchy -- about half of it is good, the other half is late 1950's SCI FI filler stuff, which I don't remember in the originals in the 70's, but it must have been there as pulp padding ...Let me know if you lot have bought it yet and what your view is...Gnostic.
A great attack on a shallow society that judges by image and appearance...a bit like the period we live in now in fact ! Gnostic.
hey, Gnostic. I haven't seen either of the two Showcase HOS volumes, but you should do pretty well ok with the 2nd volume. is it from # 99 on? because if it is, you're looking at Nestor Redondo, Berni Wrightson, Sergio Aragones, Alfredo Alcala, Alex Nino, Ruben Yandoc, George Tuska, Jim Aparo, Rudy Nebres, Ramona Fradon, and even some very early Arthur Suydam, among others, with not a stinky 50's sci-fi jobbie in sight. yeah, I reckon you could find worse things to spend your pennies on.
