Prices HAVE been low in recent months/years... 

So odd to me that Forbes was in front of this. 

I read this and my stomach sank a little, just like Sandman recently, I just worry somehow it will fail or worse yet nobody cares. I do feel content with what I've collected... Would have liked to secure a HG #2 1st or a nice HG #13 before any runup, but overall I love the Freak Brothers books I have 😄

I don't see how this would be any worse than The Harvey Street Kids.  I have yet to hear how Little Audrey, Dot, and Lotta comics have improved price wise, but the show is good.

 

Forbes Media is pretty good about these netflix or game news items.

Who watched today's TMZ?  Had a piece about the Freak Brothers series from SDCC.  Adam DeVine is one of the people doing the series.  In L.A. they repeat this evening's episode tomorrow at 1pm on Fox.

Nice! Love that 3-D comic! Not too many of those in the underground.

Richard Corben and Jan Strnad have a Kickstarter going on right now for a new, combined edition of Mutant World and Son Of Mutant World. Hasn't been going on a whole day and it looks like about 3/4 of the signed/limited edition has been spoken for!

Both of these have had cases made that they're more early independents than true undergrounds.  But I'm filing them with my undergrounds, so this it where I'm sharing them.  Very happy to get both of them

I file both of those with my UG collection. Pretty much anything that's of an alt-nature, up until the end of Arcade's run, depending, I tend to lump with that sorta thing.

Big Apple and the Wolverton comic with the unpronounceable title. Sorry that wasn't clear. Like this post, I was responding to the one directly above it.

This is a repost from January:

 

Yesterday I watched a Netflix produced television series on a subject that interests me - it mainly covers toys made for the North American consumer market. The series is called The Toys that Made Us. Episode one for season 3 covers Laird and Eastman's Ninja Turtles. I've never really had more than a tepid interest for this toy line, however in one of the early photos of Kevin Eastman, he is seen surrounded by UG comix and mags. I found that part of the segment a bit puzzling since they show this photo and then he talks about the influence comics had on him. I always welcome anyone mentioning Kirby as an influence, but to show that image and not even mention the apparent influence Corben, and even more so, the underground comix movement had on the alternative and independent publishing scene and the eventual formation of Mirage Studios was disappointing. I'm sure the folks who produced this will chalk it up to an editing decision that was absent of historical context, or that it was a choice to cater to a PG 13 audience - it is what it is, but just one of the modern day examples of how missed opportunities, giving the artists and scene the respect it deserves, still occurs to this day.  Figured I'd show some love anyway, and one of the comics on the back wall I outlined/highlighted is one of my favourite Corben covers - Up From The Deep #1

 

Wasn't Corben the first artist other than Eastman & Laird to work on a Turtles story, in issue #7?
