Hello all!
Long time collector here at CPG, occasional seller, and all around purveyor of common sense.

My philosophy...life is too short not to have some cool stuff!

I try not to post items that are too fresh. It may seem like bragging – just a humble kind of guy. I like to let them sit for a while.

About me –
What’s up with KDS? It’s not kids…





It’s not a kid like a baby goat kid either….

\

And it’s not KD either…



Just an ordinary guy – who like to joke around and get ridiculously
cheap prices for cool stuff.

More posts soon – this time – comic related – I promise

KDS

What should I start my rant with? Weird, unusual or cool?

Let’s go for cool. Yeah, that’s it…

This is the only “Land of the Giants" (issue #5) comic book I have ever seen.
The comic book is based on the 1960’s television show. It goes
something like this…

The Spindrift, a sub-oribital spaceship on a flight from Los
Angeles to London, became lost when it passed through a strange cloud in the
ship's orbit around Earth. It landed on an alternate Earth-type planet, where
the inhabitants were roughly twelve times the size of the Spindrift's
passengers. Our heroes include the ship's captain (Steve Burton), co-pilot
(Dan) and stewardess (Betty); an arrogant engineer (Mark); a sexy jet-setter
(Valerie); a young boy (Barry) and his dog Chipper; and a mysterious rogue
known as Commander Fitzhugh. Together they battle the planet's totalitarian
government, try to avoid capture, and attempt to repair the Spindrift so they
can get back home.





Photo cover…don’t forget the dog – 1960’s TV shows almost always had a
dog

And the space Ship was orange! I wonder if it inspired the color for the space shuttle main fuel tank?
Coincidence? I think not…



See my - first rant - cool and educational too... feel free to comment.

Here's one I picked up a while ago. Probably overpaid for it
too.


The Panther will get you of you don't watch out! Classic
Stan Lee writing similar characters into more than one comics - only the Panther
is a Western villain of Two Gun Kid. What the?





Nice book - grades out at about a 7.0 Fine/Very Fine.


What do you think?

It's always cool to see those prototype characters. And pretty great condition for a 12 cent issue.

Here are a couple of cool Detective comics I picked up a
while ago.


I overpaid for these, but that does not make them any less
cool.


Here’s the way comics used to grab your attention back in
the day – without sex or violence! Imagine that!


Nobody
Leaves!





Okay, there was violence, - but it took place previously and
not shown.


(Yeah, offstage like in Shakespeare! Anyone ever heard of
that guy? Anyone but me know their classics?
Anyone at all ??? Anyway, he a was pretty good writer…)


There is a backup story of Jason
Bard, hardboiled detective.


(Not to be confused with all the
detective shows on TV at the time. Riiiiggghhht )


Here’s another one…





Careful Batman that guy (or girl?) in the mist might be
looking to do you harm!


Anyway enjoy, and leave your comment here….

Orange is hard to hide. Makes it easier to find the pieces later. The TV show wanted people to see the ship. Same, but different motivation smile

I'm still missing most of the Land of the Giants.

20 cent batbooks are awesome.
