amazon.com:
EXCITING STORIES OF THE LAWMEN OF THE NORTHERN FRONTIERS

NORTHWEST MOUNTIES ran a scant four issues, but packed a lot of excitement into those pages: Adventures of the brave officer of the Canadian wilderness and towns, ruthless criminals fighting their way to destruction, and a lot of beauytiful women in dresses who don't seem to mind the colder temps! Seriously, can't someone commit or solve a crime without the help of a woman? I guess not – and we wouldn't have it any other way. NORTHWEST MOUNTIES is a combination of original stories featuring the talents of Matt Baker (every issue), L.B. Cole, Walter Johnson, and Bob Lubbers, plus reprinted and renamed stories and characters from the Chesler/Dynamic line. When you think of classic comics, you won't go wrong when you think of NORTHWEST MOUNTIES!

Endelig! Endelig kan vi samle den vigtigste manglende brik i Kurtzman puslespillet, det gamle satireblad "Help!" fra starten af 60'erne, der hjalp Robert Crumb i gang. At DH eller Fanta ikke for længst har kastet sig over denne serie, er en gåde. Vi har været henvist til de par paperbacks, der genoptrykte noget af det, men ellers har der kun været de sjældne og forholdsvis dyre original-hæfter. Ved så ikke, om vi får det hele, men nogle af numrene er i hvert fald røget i public domain, og der skiltes med "Volume 1", som altid er et godt tegn.

This Collection Needs Help! Volume 1: Gwandanaland Comics Nostalgia Series #64 - The Most Innovative and Hilarious Mag of the early 60s!

amazon.com:
THIS IS HELP! - THE MAGAZINE WITH “KISSIES”

OVER 200 PAGES OF BALONEY – ALL SLICED UP INTO LITTLE PIECES!

HUMOR – SATIRE – PARODY – SOCIAL COMMENTARY – POP CULTURE ENTERTAINMENT

For a series that lasted a scant half decade (roughly 1960-1965) HELP! Was critical to the evolution of humor and entertainment in America. It was populated by some of the top writers in the world, including Rod Serling, Algis Budrys, H.G. Wells, and of course the founder Harvey Kurtzman himself. The illustrators were a Who's Who of the day, including Kurtzman, Al Jaffee, Jack Davis, John Severin – to name but a few. Nothing was off-limits, whether for the sake of a laugh or to poke serious fun at the world itself. It was the most sophisticated and yet irreverent publication of its genre, and while it was never profitable, it was always cutting-edge. It had some controversy, including a parody “Archie Goes Playboy” which resulted in two legal actions and a promise never to reprint the story again (but we never made that promise, so you WILL find it inside)! Like many early 60s Warren publications, the copyright missed its renewal putting it into the public domain.

ISSUES V1#1, V1#8, V1#12, AND V2#1

Dagens overraskelse er 202 sider med Dick Briefer! Dick Briefer var en golden age gigant, som gav os den første horror-serie til comic books, "Frankenstein"! Det usædvanlige ved den serie var, at Briefer tegnede serien i to stilarter, hhv. big foot og realistisk! Og begge udgaver er lige gode! Jeg kender kun Briefer for den serie, men opdager nu, at han også har tegnet og skrevet en science fiction-serie, som vi får komplet fra de gode folk fra Gwanda! Fans af f.eks. Basil Wolverton vil ikke gå galt i byen her!

Så gik der lige et par uger, men nu er der igen noget interessant fra Gwanda. Pre-Code krigsserien "War Fury", med masser af Don Heck! Han var jo Marvel's foretrukne tegner af kvinder, deres in-house go-to good girl tegner! Se bl.a. hans arbejde på "Iron Man", de mest bedårende kvindfolk! Lidt senere brillerede John Romita Jr., men Heck var Stan Lee's foretrukne kvindetegner i de tidlige år. Derfor er det også meget interessant, hvad han får ud af en genre i en helt anden boldgade, hårdføre mænd i ildkamp.146 sider fra Comic Media, et golden age forlag, jeg aldrig havde hørt om før.

The Complete War Fury: Gwandanaland Comics #3234 -- Pre-Code Battle Comics!

amazon.com:
War is bad – always – but nothing says human drama quite like the horrors of battle. If you have to endure stories of war, at least you have names like Don Heck, Don Perlin, Pete Morisi, and H.C. Kiefer to make it an exciting read! Publisher Comic Media was short-lived (1950-1954) but produced some high-quality books outside the mainstream genres of superheroes and caped crimefighters ---- romance and war, the polar opposites, along with horror being the mainstays. WAR FURY features a lot of Don Heck's pen, just before he was pulled over to Atlas and became a part of the birth of Marvel. These are thrilling stories, the last gasp of pre-code war!

RETTELSE:
Der skulle selvfølgelig have stået John Romita, ikke John Romita Jr. (sønnike når ikke farmand til sokkeholderne).

Så er der Panteon og fest og farver fra Gwanda, med alt hvad der kan krybe og kravle af Golden Age superstjerner: Eisner! Fine! Briefer! Tuska! Og mange flere! Denne Jumbo Giant volume 2 er et godt sted at starte, da bladet her er i farver og med originalt comic book materiale, ikke bearbejdninger af gamle strips.

Billede

The Complete Jumbo Comics: Giant #2: Gwandanaland Comics #3172-HC: Issues #9-16

amazon.com:
JUMBO COMICS was not the first comic book, but it could be called a comic book of firsts – because this long-running series launched dozens of comic characters, and featured many of the great names of comics such as Jack Kirby, Bob Powell, Will Eisner, Matt Baker, Dick Briefer, Bob Kane and others. JUMBO began primarily as a reprint comic, but before long was a full-color showcase for original stories. From 1938-1953 --- a fantastic 15 year run, JUMBO COMICS was a mainstay of the Golden Age of Comics and Beyond. During its heyday, the lineup of JUMBO COMICS remained the same for over three years, a testament to the popularity, quality and creativity of this classic series.

This series is available as a “regular” 27-Volume collection or these amazing GIANT books (all between 450-590 pages). This second GIANT book marks the change from black & white stories (many adapted from newspaper strips) to full color mostly-original stories. The lineup of artists is a Who's Who of the Golden Age – Eisner, Fine, Briefer, Tuska and more!
