Harlan Ellison’s Star Trek, Scott McCloud’s Sculptor, Thor, Dejah Thoris, Motel Fetish, Cisco Kid 2, 2015 Calendars as low as $4.99, True Crime Detective, Wally Wood’s Woodwork—On Sale

Below you'll find more warehouse finds from the 1990s along with a teaser of upcoming titles we'll get online asap. Meanwhile, our #1 packer Todd is off to Mexico for a week, lucky guy. We're feeling for you folks with all the weather in the midwest and eastern states. Todd planned his trip when he thought here we'd be hunkered down in winter weather (we're in the mountains, so we even get snow on occasion). Not quite. We've scarcely had ANY winter. We need all that snow and rain so many of you are getting.

STAR TREK: The City on the Edge of Forever -- By Harlan Ellison et al. Art by J.K. Woodward.
Highly Recommended. For the first time ever, a visual presentation of the much-discussed, unrevised, unadulterated version of Harlan Ellison's award-winning Star Trek script, "The City on the Edge of Forever," broadcast in 1975. See the story as Mr. Ellison originally intended in a handsomely painted adaptation, and also read his newly-written introduction! This is the wonderful time-travel story where Spock and Kirk must return to Earth, circa 1930, to stop a renegade crewman from rewriting everyone’s future.....More.

LAW OF THE DESERT BORN --By Louis L'Amour, adapted by Charles Santino. Art by Thomas Yeates.
Highly Recommended. Bookplate signed by Thomas Yeates. The first graphic novel adaptation of the work of master storyteller Louis L’Amour is a dynamic tale of the Old West that explores the borderlands of loyalty and betrayal with the emotional grittiness of a noir thriller. New Mexico, 1887, a land in the midst of the worst drought anyone can remember. Family histories and loyalties run deep, but when rancher Tom Forrester has his access to the Pecos River cut off by the son of his old partner, he convinces his foreman, Shad Marone, to pay Jud Bowman back for the discourtesy. Yet what starts as a simple act of petty revenge quickly spirals into a cycle of violence that no one can control.

Our Highest Recommendation. The science fiction genre owes a debt, especially visually, to EC Comics, and this highly anticipated Wallace Wood collection shows why. It features THIRTY stories drawn in Wood's meticulously detailed brushwork (his "lived in" spaceship interiors helped inspire Star Wars' Millennium Falcon). And with titles like "Spawn of Mars," "The Dark Side of the Moon," "A Trip to a Star," "The Invaders," "The Secret of Saturn's Ring," and "The Two-Century Journey," how can you go wrong?

RICHARD REDGRAVE -- Edited by Susan P. Casteras and Ronald Parkinson.
Recommended. Warehouse Find, 1988. Artist, designer, writer, educator, Richard Redgrave (1804-1888) was highly regarded in his own era but has become almost forgotten in the years since then. This lavishly illustrated book, published on the centenary of Redgrave’s death, focuses attention once again on this remarkable Victorian figure, known for his early paintings of women, the poor and the oppressed, images that were powerful evocations of the human dilemma, such as “The Emigrant’s Last Sight of Home.”....More.

Mature Viewers

Three items this week. Motel Fetish is an unusual offering with an introduction by Eric Kroll...noir ladies in the dim lights of the classic secret liason. See our website for more with Eric Kroll.

Julie Strain and Friends has been available before, but the publisher has just run out of one issue so this is an amended relisting. We haven’t featured it in the catalog for some time, but it even comes with one issue signed by Julie. See our website for more Julie, including a DVD film!

Between Men and Woman is a very tasteful look at nudes, both men, women and men with women. This is a warehouse find that we handled in 1998. Just six copies are available.

Special Note: Google, who hosts our blog, has decided to not allow nudity any longer. So we are making two changes. First, we will no longer picture and describe Mature items in the blog, other than my brief notes in this box. But as always, you can click on each one and go right into our website to view each one.

Second, we will be deleting all the old blogs since they are not often looked at anyway and it’s far easier to do this then to go back and cut out any mature material. We’ll chop it down to five weeks of the most recent blogs, and begin again. One good aside, you won’t have to go through the “adult declaration” to get into the blog any more, since the entire blog will now be g-rated!

A quick look at our services

We publish a color catalog every two months—if you’ve placed an order in the last 12 months, you will receive it hot off the press. If this is your first order, or if you’d like an extra copy, you can add one to your order (click here) or call or send us your address and we’ll mail one to you. You can also download our catalog (5 mb) here.

We know most of our customers are collectors. We review each item to make sure it is unblemished and in perfect condition. Then we very carefully pack your order, and ship it within 48 hours (not counting weekends).

Priority Rush shipping is available in the shopping cart. Regular shipping starts at just $3.95 for orders up to $24.99 ($11.95 overseas). Shipping is FREE (in the U.S.) on orders over $300.

Any Coming Item or something temporarily out of stock is not billed to your credit card until the day we ship it ship to you.
