BraveStarr in 3-D #2

I always love finding the 3-D comics published by Blackthorne Publishing, Inc. but I only have a handful of other titles including Jungle Comics and Twisted. BraveStarr in 3-D #2 (April 1988) is based on the cartoon series from Filmation and Group W Productions. I watched several episodes when they originally came out and enjoyed the science fiction western. This issue shows how BraveStarr met 30/30 but no 3-D glasses were included. The 3-D effect was hit and miss with my John Wayne 3-D glasses. The ad for Jungle Comics featuring Sheena really popped out. The back cover has an ad for Red Heat in 3-D series, which was based on the movie featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Belushi.

Roger Wilco #1

Roger Wilco (February 1992) #1 is based on the thrilling "Space Quest" computer games from Sierra Online or so the cover claims. I have never played any of the games and I really do not want to after reading this issue. Humor and science fiction are mixed in a not too subtle way. I do like the cover and interior art by John Shaw, who was also the writer, but not enough to get any more issues in the series.

Captain Paragon and the Sentinels of Justice #2

Captain Paragon and the Sentinels of Justice #2 is the only comic from Americomics that I recently picked up. The issue is from 1985 and I already had it along with #4 and #5. I read it again just so I could catch the brief origin of Commando D. Besides, one can never get enough of Nightveil and Stardust. They team up with Scarlet Scorpion to form the Sentinels of Justice. I have a few issues of Captain Paragon's own series (#1 through #4) along with some other titles such as Black Diamond, Colt, Dragonfly and FemForce.

70 Years of Marvel Comics Trading Cards Ad And Promo Card

I picked up Non-Sport Update volume 21, #1 yesterday on a road trip (along with eighty-nine comics for a buck each but they will be subjects of future posts). On the back of the Take Along Price Guide is the ad for 70 Years of Marvel Comics Trading Cards that will be coming out in the spring of 2010 from Rittenhouse Archives. The free promo card was P2 featuring the classic Thor.

Marvel T-Shirts

I found three Marvel t-shirts by Fruit of the Loom this morning at the local Dollar General store for six dollars each. The first was a red Captain America t-shirt in which he appeared to be so fighting mad that his face turned red to match his gloves and boots:

Next, I found a gray t-shirt featuring the Invincible Iron Man in his red and gold armor:
