Miss Hepzibah takes a Trip-Sal Trapani-1967
No one ever mistook one of the wacky ACG sci-fi/fantasy tales for a DC or Marvel or even a Charlton one. ACG had unique feel both in writing and art. Were they good? Not...really. But they were wacky fun most of the time, even when they didn't have green gh...

General Little-Irwin Hasen-1955
Irwin Hasen, who passed recently, could work in many styles such as his serious superhero style on 1940s Golden Age JSA stories, his commercially popular DONDI strip style, and here, credited with this odd filler from STAR SPANGLED WAR STORIES.

Battlestar Galactica
I must confess i never saw a single episode of the critically acclaimed revival of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA from a decade or so back. I was never even that much of a fan of the original--a TV series expressly designed to cash in on the unexpected but immense po...

Joseph-Beth and Booksteve
Longtime readers will recall that I began working for Waldenbooks in 1982. More than a decade before that, my 6th Grade self became the youngest manager of the bookstore in my grade school. I was fired for giving out the wrong change too often. I became a r...

The Wrecking Crew
Been wanting to see this great music documentary since I first heard if it being made more than a decade ago. On Netflix now!

The Jester-Paul Gustavson-1941
One of the more prolific and consistently stylish artists of the Golden Age, the Finnish-born Gustavson did all types of strips for various different companies. It's surprising that his name hasn't resounded down the ages in the same breath as that of Lou F...

Ricky-Bill Williams-1953
Between RICKY and HENRY ALDRICH, I've decided that Bill Williams is as adept at these Archie-type strips as Bob Oksner was at DC!

Blackstone the Magician-Mike Sekowsky (?)-1948
Unlike other comic book magicians, Harry Blackstone was a real person. He first appeared as a magician-detective from EC and then went to Timely. In later years, his son would follow in his magical footsteps but become best known for popcorn commercials.

Booksteve Reviews: Archie Vs. Sharknado
To be fair, I've never seen any of the SHARKNADO movies. I gather they're so over the top as to be of the "so bad they're good" variety...to some folks. And it's not like I haven't seen plenty of violent movies. There are several Troma flicks I quite enjoy!...
