I picked up one of these fun little rare items (#8) by pure chance, and it's one of the centerpieces of my comic shelf and almost impossible to find. It's signed by Schultz and individually numbered #8 of 10.
Is the set sealed or are you able to show what the dinosaur figures look like? I would be fascinated to see them myself....if they are styled after the marx sets of the 60s...marx was barely hanging on in the seventies and many of the playsets were done by MPC as the change occurred.

Sadly, my comic shelf is at my home office and I am currently away on summer ministry, so no pics until September, I'm afraid.

The figures are nothing to write home about - I think the uniqueness comes from the box, which is designed in the Marx style with things like "Qua Hoon Brand" and "Mark's" playset (a nod to Mark Schultz). It even says "Jack Tenrec and Hannah Dundee approved" I believe.

The dinosaurs and army men are the little 15mm pieces that come in the plastic drug store bags of dinosaurs. It even includes one of the cheap plastic "mountains" and two plastic palm trees.

The box is a tiny tribute to both Xenozoic Tales and the Marx company, literally something you can pick up in one hand.

Here's a link to the article on my blog where I talk about picking it up:

An extremely rare digest horror comics title from Mexico. Nobody knows how many issues this series ran for? All I know is that one of my goals this year is to find as many as I possibly can!

Youse guys look great, but dis is get’n muttonotonous.

Full disclosure: Here’s da Dapper Dan trimmed down version of El Gato from a couple of years ago.

Alas, this could be the post where cool points actually get taken away.




My follicles eventually recovered from this folly, returning to fuller bearded status along with sanity and the realization that I can’t play guitar like Duane Allman either!

OTOH, lo these many years I’ve never succumbed to barber-ism.
