The Golden Age was not as golden as you would think. Found these two examples of characters that really didn't catch on like the publishers hoped. What could have possibly been the problem? Oh maybe it's that Hip Knox (?) wore his granny's toaster cosy on his head and SLEPT in his costume. Snowman was just a stupid idea. He wielded a tomahawk like all snowmen do or did and for some reason was super strong. Ugh. Once again Pappy's Golden Age Comic Blogzine comes through for us all. I cannot believe that Snowman was co-created by Frank Frazetta, yes, THE Frank Frazetta. Clink on the link to see the entire story in all its jaw dropping glory.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
