Gwanda har nu opdaget, at visse hæfter i serien "Marines in Battle" fra Atlas (Marvel) er røget i public domain! Så skal de selvfølgelig genoptrykkes! Marvel har været så flink at give os lidt krigsserier fra Atlas, og her er så et godt supplement, med en sand perlerække af store tegnere. Som noget nyt tilbyder Gwanda nu også hc, koster ca. 9 dollars mere, men jeg holder mig nu til sc.

fra amazon.com:
What happens when to take the human drama and terrible excitement of soldiers at war, and then you throw in the artistic genius of such comic greats as:

Joe Maneely – John Severin – Gene Colan – Dave Berg – Bob Powell – Syd Shores – Bob Forgione – Russ Heath – Joe Kubert – and Joe Sinnott ???

The answer is an amazing collection that simply cannot be beaten, just as the Marines themselves cannot be beaten! War is Hell, but the ability to read these stories in a 200-page collection is comic heaven!

This collection contains six thrilling issues of Atlas' MARINES IN BATTLE – a group of books that fell into the public domain and ended up on the radar of Gwandanaland Comics --- and once it gets on our radar – BOOM!

This Book: Issues #6-11 – Also available in hardcover and in economical black & white versions!
Dave Berg ??? :o

Det meste af "Combat Kelly" er røget i public domain, og Gwanda tager sig af den, på nær de første tre numre. Bladet har Joe Maneely, Carl Burgos, og - meget overraskende - Dave Berg, som vi kender fra MAD.

Combat Kelly Treasury: Volume 2: Gwandanaland Comics #3198 -- Get Into The Thick of Battle With Combat Kelly! Featuring Dave Berg artwork!

Billede

fra amazon.com:
GET INTO THE THICK OF BATTLE WITH

COMBAT KELLY!

There's no “down time” in these stories! Panel to panel it almost non-stop action as COMBAT KELLY and his guys fight it out in Korea! You never saw so many KA-BLAMS in one book – and all masterfully done by artists like Joe Maneely, Dave Berg and Carl Burgos. The COMBAT KELLY series is public domain from #4-44, and however that may have come about, we're not about to let it go unnoticed. This second book contains #11-17, mostly Dave Berg, and of all the battle-action you can fit in a comic!

Og Steve Ditko's "Captain Atom" begynder lige præcis her:

Billede

Captain Atom: Gwandanaland Comics #2-HC: He's the Hero of the Spaceways - His Complete Stories from Space Adventures and Captain Atom!

fra amazon.com:
“ Meet Captain Adam...The Air Force career man who knew more about rocketry, missiles, and the universe than any man alive....a specialist of the missile age, dedicated soldier who was a physics prodigy at eight, a chemist, a ballistics genius! In short, Captain Adam was an invaluable Space-Age soldier even before that memorable day at cape Canaveral Florida, when an Atlas missile was being readied for blast off... with an atomic warhead inside....and Captain Adam making the final, last second adjustments.....”

That was the beginning of the exciting space-action superhero CAPTAIN ATOM. He fought to defend Earth and the Solar System from evil aliens, mad scientists, rampaging monsters and galactic disaster! These are his complete stories from SPACE ADVENTURES #33-42 (1960-1961), STRANGE and CAPTAIN ATOM #78-89 (1965-1967)!

Good girl tegneren Matt Baker i denne nye bog fra Gwandanaland. De er rigtig flinke til at genoptrykke romance af Matt Baker. Mit hjerte, hvad vil du mere?

Nu skal vi tilbage til starten af 1950'erne, dengang man kunne sælge romantik. Ingen good girl tegner var bedre end Matt Baker, og denne nye kæmpe bog fra Gwanda genoptrykker al Matt Baker's arbejde fra "Diary Secrets". Bladet udkom oprindeligt på St. John, der specialiserede sig i romantik! Hvor kan livet være godt engang i mellem! Hvad skal jeg med newies, når jeg kan få oldies fra Gwanda?

Jeg må desværre lukke denne service. Amazon.com vil ikke længere lade mig sortere efter udgivelsesdato så jeg får de nyeste først, og jeg orker ikke at gå igennem 75 sider hver gang.

Nå, det viser sig, jeg stadig kan sortere efter udgivelsesdato. Amazon.com har bare smidt nogle andre udgivelser ind sammen med Gwandaerne.

Okay, her får I noget Siegel & Shuster, der aldrig har været genoptrykt før! Dr. Occult og Dr. Nemesis! Disse sider er fra ekstremt sjældne Golden Age hæfter, og man har måttet bruge mikrofiche visse steder. Disse historier fra før Superman er Joe Shuster for fuld udblæsning, og er blandt hans mest personlige værker!

Billede

Golden Age Dr. Heroes: Gwandanaland Comics #136/837-HC: Dr. Occult: The Complete More Fun Comics Stories / The Complete Dr. Nemesis

fra amazon.com:
DR. OCCULT is in many ways the epitome of comic history. He was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (under the pen names Leger and Reuths), three years before they brought us Superman. DR.OCCULT is also claimed by many to be the first costumed hero in the Golden Age of Comics. And to top it off, since he is still used as a character today, he is one of the longest running character concepts in comics, with a history that stretches back well over 83 years! For reasons we may never know, National Periodical Publications failed to renew the copyrights of the first few dozen issues of New Fun / More Fun Comics. While good quality copies of this iconic series are rare and expensive, Gwandanaland Comics is proud to bring you the complete MORE FUN COMICS run of DR. OCCULT stories, including his first appearance! – an exciting look back into comic history!

Includes his appearance in The Comics Magazine #1 (as Dr. Mystic)!

NOTE: Because of the rarity of good material, this is a “something is better than nothing” situation. Some stories are taken from low-resolution microfiche and required alteration. We will constantly work to upgrade our books; in the meantime, we hope you can appreciate this first-ever print collection of this early Golden Age series.

“Young Dr. Jim Bradley, hospital intern, has discovered a truth serum which when injected into a person causes them to tell the absolute truth to any questions asked. When the effects of the serum wear off shortly afterwards, the patient does not remember the interlude. Fearing that the truth serum with get into criminal hands and be misused, Dr, Bradley keeps the serum a secret, but he uses the serum as a weapon when he goes forth incognito, as DR. NEMESIS, to fight the forces of evil!”

Intern by day, crimefighter by night, DR NEMESIS is a hero who is not afraid to “stick it” to the criminals – and Gwandanaland Comics has the only complete collection of his adventures in print – from Lightning Comics and Super-Mystery Comics!

Samme teknik, men ikke helt samme format. Lidt ligesom forskellen på et fotografi og en film (fra dengang begge dele var på celluloid). Mikrofiche = enkeltark, mikrofilm = filmruller.

Nå, så det er altså forskjell på de ordene! Takk, det visste jeg ikke før nå.

Ellers definerer Store norske leksikon mikrofiche som et "mikrofilmkort", så helt feil er det kanskje ikke å beskrive det som mikrofilm likevel (selv om jeg selv også tenker på ruller når jeg hører ordet "mikrofilm"). Imponerende at microfiche kan romme "flere hundre boksider (...) på et kort i 4x5 tommers format".

Det hele er jo "film". Ligesom man satte "film" i Instamatic-kameraet i gamle dage, selv om resultatet blev enkeltbilleder på papir, når man hentede dem hos fotohandleren.

"Filmruller" er bare mere praktiske at søge i end enkelt-celler, fordi man kan spole frem og tilbage i dem. Grundlæggende er det det samme, blot i hhv. enkeltbilleder og mange billeder på en filmrulle.

Og ja, der kan være store mængder information på et "mikrofilmkort" (glimrende norskifisering af "mikrofiche" :-) ) Jf. også diverse spionfortællinger 8)

Hvis man kun køber "Torchy" for Bill Ward, er det hele i denne nye bog fra Gwanda:

Billede

Torchy - Volume 1: Gwandanaland Comics #195-HC: From Military and Modern Comics

fra amazon.com:
There's a lot you can say about Torchy Todd: she's beautiful, she's.....well, she's beautiful. Never known for her smarts (although she always managed to outsmart the men chasing her) Torchy tempted and teased for many years of the Golden Age of Comics and beyond. No one beat Torchy for pure, don't-let-your-mother-see-this-book comic fun! We have all her stories for you in two great books – no filler, no back-up stories, nothing but the character you want to read about!

This book contains all the TORCHY stories from Modern Comics #53-102. The first 37 stories are drawn by her creator and driving force, Bill Ward. Starting with issue #90 Gill Fox more-than-ably brought his own style and creative energy to this iconic character. The page are not all pretty – these stories show their age, but they are still a great read!
