Some More Comic Files

I've spent the last few days scanning & editing quite a few books, including a nice group of issues from Charlton's Atomic Mouse series, Hillman's Clue Comics 12, Crime and Punishement 38, Ned Pines' Supermouse 29 and other assorted odds & ends. Check-out "My Golden Age Comic Book Files" page for all the "NEW" links to the files.

Taking the easy way out for today's post, I'm showcasing the back covers to a few issues of "Atomic Mouse". At least half of the run had pin-ups on the back covers. This radioactive rodent's series ran for 54 issues, from 1953 until 1963. Charlton published the character again from 1984 to 1986. One-shots have appeared from A-Plus Comics in 1990, Shanda Fantasy Arts in 2001 and finally from Avalon Communications in 2002.

Sgt Spook & The Daughters of Doom!!!

I've stated before that I'm not a huge fan of horror comics, but I simply can't ignore the horrifying fact that it was in October 1968 that Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones & John Bonham first performed as "Led Zeppelin", and then, on October 22, 1969, the fearsome foursome released "Led Zeppelin II" to the general public, causing mass hysteria. To commemorate those events, I'm presenting some Scary Stories From The Past!!!

From Novelty Press' Blue Bolt Comics volume 2 issue 10 comes Sgt Spook. The Daughters of Doom comes from The Beyond # 8, published by Ace Magazines Inc in 1952.

New Comic Files

I have some new comic files to share with the world:

Supermouse 44 from Pines Comics, Summer 1958.
Supermouse 45 also from Pines Comics, Fall 1958.
Blue Bolt Comics volume 2 number 10 from Novelty Press, March 1942. This is a partial scan, including only the Sub-Zero, Blue Bolt, Sgt Spook and Old Cap Hawkins Tales features.

Other comics I've scanned can be found on "My Golden Age Comic Book Files" page.

And before anyone starts to think I've forgotten all about Halloween, here's a cartoon from Mirth issue 40 (October 1955).

More horror-related stuff soon!
