Timmy’s Wacky Comic Finds! (Part 2)
Back in mid May, I wrote a story about how Comics have hurt my wallet, but it also had some great benefits (at least for me). Well in my collecting, my friend gave me what's called "a long box" full of comics. It is exactly what it sounds like, it's a long cardboard box full of comics! In my Timmy's Wacky Comic Finds (Part 1), I highlighted some of the weird floppies that I now own. Here we go with Part 2... it might get weirder!
William Shatner's Tek World: After you romance every green woman in the universe, what else should you do? Create a series of novels and then team up with Marvel/Epic Comics, that's what! Tek World was a comic book series published by Marvel, from 1992 to 1995, based on the TekWar novels created by William Shatner!
Neil Gaiman's Mr. Hero The Newmatic Man: Best known for his Sandman series, Neil Gaiman also created "Mr. Hero the Newmatic Man" The series lasted a little over a year starting in 1995 focusing on a robot with an awesome mustache!
Aftertime: Warrior Nun Dei: This was a 3 part comic series back in 1997 from Antarctic Press. This particular issue is one of a 1,000 printed. If you wanted to know what would happen if the Vatican discovered a completely demonic planet... pick up Aftertime, Warrior Nun Dei by Patrick Thornton.
Ghost Rider: Marvel's Ghost Rider #25 was not only a cool book back in 1992, but it was a "double-sized milestone issue that also had something special inside! The centerfold was a pop-up! This was the first time (when I bought it back in the day) that I had ever seen this done, and it was (and still is) epic!
Quantum Leap: "Oh Boy", continuing the adventures from the hit TV show, Dr. Sam Beckett takes his time traveling adventures to the pages of Innovation Comics back in 1991!
Nikki Doyle Wildthing: From Marvel UK in 1993, these adventures usually dealt with virtual reality. When is she getting her own movie Marvel???
Heroes Against Hunger: This is one of the neater finds in the long box. It was a 1986 all-star benefit comic book for African famine relief and recovery. From DC Comics staring Batman & Superman! Lex really isn't very helpful is he?
I hope you're enjoying looking at these weirdly awesome yet trashy treasures. I got plenty more I'll show to you coming soon in part 3! Plus who knows, you might find William Shatner's Tek World on the Wheel of Goodness!
