Trump Staycation Collectibles!

If you're a "deplorable" who supports Don (the Con) Trump... probably can't afford to take a vacation this summer since you're not employed, or can't afford to do anything but take a "staycation" if you do get time off from your job!
So, to avoid the humiliation of admitting you can't afford to go anywhere, we're offering the chance to at least look like you went somewhere with a line of kool branded collectibles!
(You can claim you said "hi" to Donnie's buddy Vlad!)

Dunkirk and Friday Fun on NSFW Comics!

Before this Dunkirk...
...there was this "Dunkirk"!
...a never-reprinted book-length telling of the heroic saga by military comics legend Sam Glanzman!
Available only on our "brother" RetroBlog War: Past, Present & Future!

It's at our newest RetroBlog, Not Safe for Work Comics, because the Wally Wood/Al Williamson tale of a comics fanboy's wet-dream contains nudity!
Check it out HERE...but only if you're an adult (we're going to ask)!

Reading Room OUT OF THIS WORLD "Manana!"

Procrastination can be a killer...literally!
Sometimes, though, a subtle warning proves to be enough...
Written by Joe Gill and rendered by Steve Ditko, this Twilight Zone-esque story from Charlton's Out of This World #9 (1957) is one of Ditko's most-reprinted non-series tales!

Reading Room: MYSTICAL TALES "Try-Out!"

Here's a never-reprinted tale from 1957...
...that could never be told today!
See if you can figure out why...
Consider...what current technology could be used in the place of the projector?
If the protaganist used anything like a smart phone, tablet, or other hand-held device, the audience would just claim another, hidden, device was supplying the images!
But when this story appeared in Atlas' Mystical Tales #8 (1957), tech was a lot simpler!
If artist Sid Check's work (especially the inking) looks similar to Wally Wood's, there's a good reason for it...Check worked in the same studio as Wood, Joe Orlando, and Harry Harrison, often assisting them the way they assisted him when deadlines loomed!
BTW, the writer is unknown!

Trump Reading Room DEATH RATTLE "Foreshadow"

Like Trump's "deplorables", the primitives below fail to actually listen... this never-reprinted tale from Kitchen Sink's Death Rattle V1N2 (1973)!
Writer-artist John Pound is still going strong almost half-a-century later!
Besides underground comics, he also worked on Marvel's Howard the Duck, and was the primary artist on the original run of Garbage Pail Kids from Topps Cards!

It's Summertime! Drink KOOBA KOLA!

Wait a second...You CAN'T!
It doesn't exist!
(You can read the sordid tale of the soda that almost took the world by storm here!)
You can't DRINK it, but you can WEAR it!
It's the height of summer, and we at Atomic Kommie Comics™ decided to re-present the Soda That Would Not Die on collectibles ranging from BeachWear / NightShirts to mugs, iPad / netbook / messenger bags (and the irony of doing bags with "Kooba" on them hasn't escaped us!), and hoodies at KoobaCola 1 and KoobaCola 2!
So celebrate what could have been one of the bubbliest success stories of soft drink entepreneurship, but instead just fizzled out and fell flat!
(You just knew we were gonna do a pun like that, didn't you?)  ;-)

Going to ComicCon in San Diego Next Week?

Friday Fun BIG APPLE COMIX "New York City: the Future"

In 1975, this is what we thought were headed for...
Written and illustrated by Paul Kirchner, this never-reprinted piece from Big Apple Comix (1975) is somewhat, but not totally prophetic.
Odd, though, how the armored character in the last panel looks like a Cylon, eh?
(Battlestar Galactica was created several years later...)

Reading Room ALARMING ADVENTURES "Silent Street"

A quiet suburban street late at night...
..hardly the typical locale for a sci-fi story, eh?
We'll see...
Did Harii take possession of Bowen's body after teleporting there or do the two simply look alike?
(Harii apparently didn't arrive in a ship of his own, so teleportation is the most obvious answer.)
The "poetic" explanation would be that Harii was waiting for Vlado inside Bowen and "emerged" when Vlado arrived...except we had seen Harii back on their world, so he couldn't have been waiting on Earth!
George Tuska illustrated this never-reprinted tale from Harvey's Alarming Tales #1 (1962), but the writer is unknown...
