And as always, if there’s anything special you need (like, oh, say, for Christmas!) just let us know and we can special order it for you! Thanks, and see you at the shop!
A team-up for the ages! The Flaming Carrot, the oddball surreal superhero, joining forces with Herbie Popnecker, the star of an equally-strange comic book series from the 1960s! If I recall correctly, Carrot creator Bob Burden had actually sought out Herbie’s creator, Ogden Whitney, for an artistic collaboration but Mr. Whitney had unfortunately passed away in the 1970s. Burden is more than up to the task of presenting the inherent weirdness of Herbie, however. FUN MIKE FACT: the Flaming Carrot’s secret identity is a long-standing mystery, and I was half-convinced that the Flaming Carrot was, in fact, a grown-up Herbie. One would think this particular issue would have put that theory to rest, but frankly, given the sorts of adventures both characters were involved in, that still isn’t a deal-breaker!
The new comics are a’comin’, and they’ll be here at Sterling Silver Comics this Wednesday! Take a peek at what you can expect just below:
And as always, special orders are just dandy with us, so don’t be shy about requesting anything you don’t happen to see on the shelves. See you at the shop!
A classic example of the “villain as hero” comic book series, The Joker had a short but memorable run in the 1970s. Because he was the villain, despite being the star of the book he usually met with a Comics Code Authority-mandated defeat at the end of each issue. However, plenty of guest-stars, heroes and villains, popped up in the comic, including Superman’s nemesis Lex Luthor, the Creeper, Catwoman, and, as in the issue pictured above, Sherlock Holmes! Okay, in the story it was an actor playing Sherlock Holmes, but close enough! An oddball classic by Denny O’Neil, Irv Novick and Tex Blaisdell!
Saturday, November 19th is Local Comic Shop Day at Sterling Silver Comics, and we’ll have an assortment of limited edition graphic novels, statues, and variant covered comics from DC Comics, Marvel, Black Mask, Boom!, Image, and more, while supplies last! We’ll also have special in-store deals for that day! Hope to see you there!
The new comics are just about to arrive at Sterling Silver Comics this Wednesday, but you can get a look at what’s coming in right now!
And as always, special orders are never a problem, in case you’re looking for anything we don’t have! See you at the shop!
Thanks to all of you out there for your ongoing patronage and support, and making my store the success that it is! I am extremely grateful.
Now onward to our third year (and hopefully more besides)!
This issue from DC Comics’ short-lived adaptation of the popular 1970s sitcom, illustrated by Ric Estrada and Bob Oksner, was written by Mark Evanier, now known for his collaboration with Sergio Aragones on Groo the Wanderer and his work on various iterations of the Garfield cartoon. However, he had also worked on the actual Welcome Back, Kotter TV show as an editor and writer, making him quite ideal for this particular assignment!
Get ready for a new selection of great comics and other goodies coming to Sterling Silver Comics this Wednesday!
And as always, we’re happy to special order anything you’re looking for! See you at the shop!
