Smithsonian Comic Book Exhibit


Holy Disappointment Batman!

I went to the Smithsonian History Museum because I heard they had a comic book exhibit.

The Smithsonian is the gold standard of museums right? RIGHT?!?!?

They had the 1989 Batmobile, which is great of course, and two glass cases. One had the Linda Carter Wonder Woman Costume, Wolverines claws, a lunch box and other kitsch…. a costume of… the Puerto Rican Captain America!?!?!?!

And a second case of comic book and comic strip art of varying interest level….

I’ll save you the trip, this video and accompanying links are all you are going to see:





R.I.P. Stan Lee


Nobody lives forever.


But Stan Lee seemed like one of those celebrities who would always be around. He was always writing about himself in “Stans soap box” in all of the Marvel Comics I devoured in the late 70s and mid 80s.

His voice was often in the Spiderman cartoons…..  DC didn’t really have a figurehead like Stan Lee.

Walt Disney studios had….. Walt Disney. Star Wars had George Lucas. The Muppets had Jim Henson.

I have read some “anti Stan Lee” things, how he took credit for others works,  didn’t pay artists and writers what he should…. then again the same things were said about Walt Disney etc…


Stan Lee was born Stanley Martin Lieber on December 28, 1922 and died November 12, 2018).




Sea Monkey documentary


Remember those “sea monkey” ads that ran in comic books seemingly… forever?


Somebody did a youtube  video documentary on this scam/novelty:




Old Batmobile animation


I searched youtube to see if any fans had made any 3D animations of the 66 George Barris Batmobile.






The first one I found was this:




By the way what the heck is THIS:

Thats not the 66 George Barris Batmobile.  Its the original comic book one from the 1930’s.


Why is Marvel Comics THOR blonde?


Why is Marvel Comics THOR blonde?  Isn’t Thor a big burley RED headed, RED bearded character?


Thats the way he is described in Norse mythology.
