Tetsuwan Atom Miso Bowl

I bought this cute Tetsuwan Atom, (aka Astroboy), miso bowl in Osaka last year, and boy do I love it. Highlighted by artwork on all four sides of the bowl, including Astro's sister, Uran (and pet), the only thing I need to do now is find some worthy miso here in America to eat from out of it!

KING KONG by Frazetta

I recently found this first printing Ace paperback edition of KING KONG from '76 and was immediately blown away by the ever incredible Frank Frazetta cover art. As if that wasn't cool enough, Ace Books was even so kind as to include the painting a second time on the back cover, and minus all of the text! Yes, Fay Wray never looked Frazettier! So here are both sides scanned high resolution, the back cover unfortunately has quite a few scruffs and dings-- and I've yet to actually read this novelization, but when I do I'll add some additional notes to this post. Stay tuned!

Meet the Living Mermaids!

Whoa, I'm finally getting an AEET post going here in 2019, (sorry for the tardiness), and if you've been following THOIA for the last 4 posts HEREHERE, HERE, and HERE, then you're already aware of the Professor Broussard, aka The Werewolf Hunter stories that I've been sharing over thar. But this sexy tail (get it?) from under the sea is just too fun 'n weird to not share, though not nearly as horrific as the THOIA posts have been-- so I'm putting it here for all to sea! *wink! And if you need more info on the Prof, head over to the stories linked above for the de-tails! From the April '45 issue of Rangers Comics #22, and lovely art by the even lovelier Lily Renee, of course!

*NOTE: No fish were fried in the making of this post. Sushi ONLY!
