I know comics rule, but so does anything comic-related. I pulled out my run of Amazing World of DC Comics at the request of another forum user, and wanted to share them with both you and him. These ‘zines contain great stories and amazing art, some of which was never previously published. I had a subscription, and back in 1975/1976, everything was delivered by “snail” mail. They also did not use any bags, boards, padding, or really anything to protect the book, only a paper envelope, so some bent corners were inevitable. I am showing scans of both front and back covers, because some of the back covers are that good.

Here’s #1-7:

This reminds me of Old Man Logan where the Super-Villains (Hulk, Magneto, Red Skull, etc.) have divied up the US into a few separate territories.

For me there was nothing more exciting than that rare
experience of finding a comic book based on a favorite
radio program. It offered an opportunity to put "a face"
with the voice on the radio.



OO

The radio program offered a wall map (20x36) to listeners.

A limited edition "Xenozoic Tales" playset, filled with little plastic dinosaurs and some cheap plastic army men, styled after the Marx playsets of the 60s and 70s. Only 10 were made for sale at the San Diego Comic Con in 2007 with the approval of creator Mark Schultz. They were made by the same guy who laid out and designed many of the IDW Artist Edition hardcovers.

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!
