DAVY JONES 1945-2012

I was very saddened this morning when I heard the news that Davy Jones had passed away. Above is the DAVY sketch card from my set of MONKEES cards...and below is a pic that Davy signed for Leslie and I about two weeks ago in Burbank, CA. The very bottom pic was taken by Leslie of Davy signing our pic. 8^)

DEPUTY DAWG DESIGNED!

From my collection...here's the cover to NEW TERRYTOONS #2 from 1960. I love the layout and design of all of the elements on this cover! It's simple, and the whole cover reads clearly.

KISS!

KISS...their first, self-titled album was released 38 years ago today, February 18, 1974! Songs include STRUTTER, DEUCE, FIREHOUSE, BLACK DIAMOND and COLD GIN! To me, KISS is and always will be...GENE SIMMONS, PAUL STANLEY, ACE FREHLEY and PETER CRISS! 8^)

WHEN COMICS WERE BRAVE AND BOLD!

Just recently "re-added" this comic book to my collection...THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD #113. I remember buying this comic off of the spinner rack back in 1974! 8^) What happened to DC Comics??!!

THE PHANTOM at 76!
