Hey All,

After being behind all summer, I finally have a new "page of the day" story for everyone. This is the Warren classic "The Hacker's Last Stand" and was contributed by Roberto Zaghi.

Thanks Roberto!

 Some time in late 1969(?) or 1970, DC comics and ABC created product tie-in comic books and cartoon episodes based on the famous and very popular Mattel toys.

Hotwheels Cartoon

Rumor has it that the cartoon was canceled because it was not much more than a 1/2 hour commercial. As we know Toth designed the characters and created some of his best comic book art in the DC comic book.

Here is the Hotwheels Cartoon opening theme and some small scans of some Toth Newspaper Comic Strip Ads.

Unfortunately not much Toth art in the opening theme bit. It's more like a commercial than an opening theme. If this opening is any indication of the show, I can see why in the "dark ages" of TV that they had some issues with it. Now of course everything is a big product blur; practically every cartoon has toys and vice-versa.

It would be nice to see an episode of this cartoon. IMDB details for the show.

Also as a special bonus, the Mostly Ghostly Music Sharing Blaaahhhggg!!! has a download link to the ghastly tie-in album (which includes the Skyhawks cartoon theme). Who knew they had music too?

 


New code is really bad, huh?

Ok, Perhaps my new code is a total failure.

No hard feelings on my part if you tell me so.

The site activity totaly dropped off after the new site code was put in place. Some people report having problems, and I'm not able to recreate them on my side to fix them.

The old forum is still available if people want to tell me what's wrong and I'll try and fix it. Or vote if I should just dump it and go back to the old code.

Let me know your thoughts the old forums here...

Sorry if I'm the last to hear this, as I see we lost Dave back in early March, but the Chicago Tribune published the news in their weekly obituary round-up only yesterday (April 6, 2008).

I'm very saddened to hear Dave was so sick and has succumed to his Lukemia, it's a sad loss to the comic world, I'll miss his work.

New Noel Sickles reprint book - Scorchy Smith And The Art Of Noel Sickles

I suppose this is old news, but I'll post it for those folks who may not have heard. IDW is publishing Scorchy Smith And The Art Of Noel Sickles.

Noel Sickles Scorchy Smith Comic Strip Reprint book

Here is from the book's description: "Noel Sickles drew comics for three brief years, yet his groundbreaking work on the 1930s aviation adventure series Scorchy Smith is a milestone in the history of newspaper comic strips. Over the past 70 years, however, readers have seen only occasional excerpts of this seminal work. Now, IDW's Library of American Comics presents Scorchy Smith and The Art of Noel Sickles, a comprehensive, oversized volume that collects, for the first time, every Sickles Scorchy strip, from December 1933 through November 1936."

Alex Toth was a contibuter to the old reprints published by Nostalgia Press in the seventies. Now we will have 352 pages of Noel Sickles Scorchy Smith! Cool huh?
