Timmy’s Wacky Comic Finds! (Part 4)
Just when you thought I forgot all about my series of "Wacky Comic Finds" I bring you PART 4!!! My apologies in the bit of a delay since part 3. Life has been busy, between Comic Crawls, Free Comic Book Day, all the smoke & mask mandates... my life has been pretty busy! But I've finally able to bring you, the long awaited, part 4 of my trashy treasures!
To recap how all of this came about, 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), (Part 2) & (Part 3) I highlighted some of the weird floppies that I now own. Here we go with Part 4... it might get weirder!
The Craptacular B-Sides #3
If you ever wanted to see a group of nobody superheroes in New Jersey try to save the day, this is the story for you! This 3 issue series from Marvel was published back in 2002 and is by David-Marshall & Weldele.
Radical Dreamer #0
Back in 1994 a publisher named Blackball released Radical Dreamer! Think of the Matrix mixed with Ready Player One set in the year 3040. The best I can tell, it only had a 5 issue run.
Nth Man: The Ultimate Ninja #1
This is a comic about an American ninja during World War 3 and was published by Marvel between 1989 & 1990. Sadly, this was canceled after only 16 issues.
Michael Moorock's Multiverse #3
This 12 issue series came out in 1997, published by the DC Comics imprint Helix. This series dealt with characters from Moorcock's Eternal Champion novels. Each issue featured different time lines, events & locations, and as the title says, different universes! Micheal was doing multiverses before it was cool!
Aliens Vs. Predator: Duel 1 & 2
It's the story we know & we love. This time, it was a 2 issue story from Dark Horse Comics published back in 1995. Marvel now owns the rights to both franchises, so we'll see if there will ever be a sequel to not only the movies, but to the "Duel" story as well.
Before Tessa Thompson portrayed her on the big screen in Thor: Ragnarok, and the character's Marvel Comics relaunch earlier this year, Valkyrie had a much different look. This is how she was depicted in a Marvel "One-Shot" from January of 1997.
Hopefully we won't have to wait too long for me to bring you part 5, as I'm nearing the end of the Long Box! Good news is, I might be throwing on some of the "extra" issues on the Wheel of Goodness! You never know who might want a copy of WCW!
