Both were great..well duh..Kirby or Steranko..why choose. I probably re-read those comics (OK reprints, but I did have them all one time) more than any thing.
Mike, you must be my brother from another mother, cause the Nick Fury tales are my favorite re-reads (over and over). Reprints are ok, but you know I'm all about the art, and the originals are just so beautiful (except some of the Kirby got butchered by poor inking)
Yeah and mom liked me best too!!I have pictures of my little library of comic art and history on my Facebook page, FYI, if you can find it.Mike
Smothers Brothers reference? This is just too much simpatico synchronicity (get outta my head, Mike!) On a more somber note, I don't do Facebook (me and one other guy on the planet, right?), but I can tell your archives are right up my alley, so I hope to see your blog and/or tumbler someday
More or less yes on the Smothers Brothers comment. I have several brothers and one actually was a favorite. At this point dont have a blog except for the one I run for my college library..hmmm will think of some thing. Do you actually OWN all these books / art??
OK I went ahead and made a blog that (poorly) shows off my little collection,so go to:http://lookatmikesstuff.blogspot.com/Yes that is Look at Mike's Stuff blogMike in Florida
Wow, this is impressive computer energy, Mike! I dig all your stuff, and I am a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, but my self-inflicted parameters have limited me to some Steranko illos of the sleuth from Baker Street (bombin fish'n chips at the Baker Street restaurants, by the by). No, I only own about one-fourth of the stuff I post. I've spent many years downsizing my collectibles, and if I took photos like you've done, you'd see a corner of a closet and a fairly small bookshelf
Oh man I was imagining a huge manly man-cave with lots of shelves of priceless books and a butler just to dust them off regularly. LOLStill the pictures you post are all the classic "Good Stuff" that I tell the younger comic fans here at work to check out and worship.
Thanks for the props with the kids! I know exactly what you're describing with the "man-cave with lots of shelves of priceless books," and it's a real place! I can't believe it if it's true, but have you never roamed Mr. Doortree's blog of "Golden Age Comic Book Stories"? If not, get thee hence. Search his blog with any of our favorite names-Kirby, Kane, Kaluta, Kubert, Krenkel(and that's just one letter of the alphabet!)-and prepare to be dazzled
Actually I do follow that on occasion and wowsers have a treasure trove!
