HARVEY KURTZMAN'S TRUMP Highly Recommended. By Harvey Kurtzman, Wally Wood, Will Elder, Al Jaffee, Jack Davis et al. Trump was a lavish color satire magazine Harvey Kurtzman created for Hugh Hefner after leaving MAD in 1956. With a star-studded cast (Mel Brooks, Will Elder, Jack Davis, Wally Wood, Al Jaffee) and Playboy's money and clout, Trump should have been huge. But for complex financial reasons, Hefner pulled the plug while the third issue was in production. Never before collected, issues #1 and #2 and never-before-seen art, including the surviving contents of ithe third issue! Kitchen Sink, 2016. ....More.

An affordable omnibus format collecting some of the best Conan comics ever, and I don't say that lightly. Cary Nord is a brilliant artist, and these new adaptions of the classic Robert E.

FLASH GORDON DAN BARRY DAILIES Volume 2 The Lost Continent 12 complete episodes from 1953-1956. Highly Recommended. By Dan Barry. Not your father's Flash Gordon! In 1951, Flash was rebooted. Formerly taking place in real time, and on Mongo, this reboot set Flash, Dale and Zarkov (and no other former characters) in the world ten years in the future and in our own solar system. The title story takes place on earth, but eleven more episodes here take the adventurers to Mars, Ganymede, and finally to Mongo.

This unusual strip was the first to feature a magician. Unlike other adventurers, Mandrake used his illusionist skills and his head, rather than his fists. Artist Phil Davis's work is as good as Alex Raymond's from the same period, exhibiting a fine-line brush and beautiful girls as good as the master.
