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.

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!

The Complete Rex Dexter: Gwandanaland Comics #3230 -- The Interplanetary Explorer - Written and Drawn by Dick Briefer Paperback

amazon.com:
INTERPLANETARY EXPLORER REX DEXTER, though he arrived on Earth from Mars in the year 2000 to find an advanced civilization, was really an Earthman – born on Mars where his parents had crashed some six decades earlier. Finally able to escape the Red Planet, Rex and his girlfriend Cynde travel among the stars and planets, battling for their lives and the fate of the Earth, and encountering the most amazing creatures known to the Universe!

REX DEXTER appeared in Mystery Men Comics #1-24 (1939-1941), a reprint story in The Eagle #1, and had his own title for a thrilling one issue! We've collected all his stories into this great collection --- your passport to the Spaceways!

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.

Billede

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!

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!

Nu skal vi langt tilbage i tiden, helt tilbage til 1940-41, hvor comic books med originalt indhold endnu var i deres vorden. Der er sket det, at DC Comics, som ellers normalt har været meget omhyggelige med at forny deres copyrights, har ladet de første fire numre af All-Star Comics ryge i public domain. Nu har jeg så ikke krydstjekket med Archives, men under alle omstændigheder er her et stykke tegneseriehistorie, der nok skulle kunne friste DC samlere.

Golden Age All Stars: Gwandanaland Comics #3215 --- Some Of The Most Famous Superheroes Team-Up to Protect Justice and our Society!

amazon.com:
They were the earliest days of the Golden Age (1940-1941) and some of the greatest superheroes of the 20th Century were being introduced and featured in the earliest issues of All-Star Comics #1-4. Individually at first, and then as part of the first great Society of heroes seeking Justice for all, these iconic characters have thrived over the last 80 years. Through the good fortunes of fate, those first four issues did not have copyright renewed, which puts them squarely in the public domain, and allows us to present them for you in this amazing collection!


We're not trying to be coy – trademark laws limit what I can display and use for marketing purposes --- but if you know who these characters are, then you know who these characters are, and you don't need my help!


NOTE: In issues #1, 2 and #4 a few pages are not available in high-quality original scans, and so are filled from other sources: B&W reprints, microfiche, later color reprints, etc. This affects only a small number of pages out of the entire book – fewer than 10 out of 270. Given the rarity and cost of these originals, we hope you will appreciate that something, in this case, is better than nothing – but if you can help update these books, contact us for great rewards!

OG der gik lige 11 dage, men nu er der science fiction fra Gwanda. Klasse sf af de gamle mestre. Fra Avon, et forlag, der specialiserede sig i sådanne ting. Avon, der hvad navne angår, næsten kunne måle sig med EC Comics. Afsluttede historier, som det var kutyme dengang først i 50'erne.

Billede

Avon Science-Fiction Gems: Gwandanaland Comics #2046-HC: Five Classic Space Opera Greats!

amazon.com:
In the early 1950s, Avon Periodicals set new standard of quality and excitement for the science-fiction comic. The stories were exceptional, and the artists among the best in the business – talents such as Wally Wood, Joe Kubert and Carmine Infantino put pen to paper and created a new future universe for the comic reader of the early Atomic Age. The thrilling volume contains these classics:

ATTACK ON PLANET MARS

AN EARTH MAN ON VENUS

FLYING SAUCERS

ROBOTMEN OF THE LOST PLANET

ROCKET TO THE MOON

This Gwandanaland Comics contains credits and other important information for these historic comics, as well as larger page images – a truly deluxe collection!

Det var ikke kun DELL, der specialiserede sig i film-adaptioner. Fiction House kunne også være med, endda helt tilbage i 1946-47. Og folk som Matt Baker og Bob Lubbers har tegnet. Hvor SKAL vi dog finde plads til alle disse bøger? :?

Billede

The Complete Movie Comics: Gwandanaland Comics #1982-HC: The Hottest Films of the Day (1946-47) Adapted to Comics, and More!

amazon.com:
It was a genius idea, one which may have just been ahead of its time – taking the movies to the comics. In the 40s and 50s is was tried by a number of publishers. Later, when it was applied to popular TV shows – perhaps with a more loyal, long-standing audience – it took off. In the meantime, though not long-lived, Fiction House's MOVIE COMICS (#1-4; 1946-1947) presented some of the top films and stars of Holly wood adapted for comics, and features drawn by some of the top comic illustrators of the day include Bob Lubbers and Matt Baker! Can you imagine if they decided decades later to do comic adaptations of iconic films like Star Wars? Wait... they did? See, this series WAS ahead of its time!

Hvad du ønsker, skal du få... :D Jeg skal nok få samlet det run af "Dennis the Menace", om det så bliver det sidste, jeg gør.

Billede

Fun With A Menace: Volume 2: Gwandanaland Comics #3258 --- America's Favorite Eternal Child!

amazon.com:
He is immediately recognizable to Americans and kids of all ages across the world. He has been 5-and-a-half years old and more than a handful since he debuted in 1951, and he has never been out of print in some form somewhere. Whether he's making his father's hair turn gray, his mother reach the end of her rope, or making Mr. Wilson just lose it, Dennis is that part of our childhood we never want to forget – fun, with no consequences. In 1953 the series was already popular enough for a comic book, and this series by Pines (the copyright for which was amazingly never renewed), brings some of the best FUN WITH A MENACE, continuing with Giants #3 & #4 and regular issue #8!

Så er der igen godt nyt fra Gwanda: "Nightshade" af Steve Ditko! Og kun Charlton historierne (DC kan godt fåkke af her). Eneste komplette Nightshade fra Charlton! Hvor heldig kan man være? Seriedebut i september 1966 (ja, 1966).

Nightshade: Gwandanaland Comics #176-HC: The Darling Of Darkness - Her Complete Stories From Captain Atom Comics

“NIGHTSHADE – a name that rings with fear in the unknown shadows of the underworld of criminals and spies! But where did this nymph of nemesis come from? What is the dreaded secret of her shadowy powers?”

NIGHTSHADE teamed up with Captain Atom on a few missions before she starred in her own stories – we have all of them for you right here: the first and only collection of NIGHTSHADE in print!”

Nu skal vi bolle. For nu samler Gwanda alle historierne med "Black Phantom", western heltinden, der gik som back-up i "Tim Holt"! Begge var tegnet af Frank Bolle, som vi også kender fra "Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom". Bolle specialiserede sig i westerns for Magazine Enterprises i 1950erne, men fortsatte faktisk som avis-serietegner helt op til 90erne! Han fik en Inkpot pris i 2003.

Billede

The Complete Black Phantom: Gwandanaland Comics #1077-HC: Her Full Series -- Exciting Western Hero Action! - "It's Complicated..."

amazon.com:
“It's Complicated....”

In the west the good guys are the good guys and the bad guys are the bad guys (or in this case, gal) --- but the story of Tim Holt (aka Red Mask) and Black Phantom (Helena) doesn't follow that simple path. She's a train robber who terrorizes the West with her cohort known as Beast, but she has to come to battle Red Mask --- and they begin a complex and exciting dance of crime versus law, man versus woman, right versus wrong. How does it end? Well, there'd be no sense in telling you that, because we have the complete series from Tim Holt / Red Mask and THE BLACK PHANTOM's only issue of her own comic series! In the 1950s the Western was King and in the West it was THE BLACK PHANTOM who wanted to be Queen!
