A day . . . Lost . . .
WOH lost a day somewhere, thought it was Thursday today which means that I posted “Mississippi blues Tuesday” on Monday . . . oops! could-a been worse . . .
If you’re not reading “Karl Lagerfeld’s Guide for Living” (check my blog roll) you are missing some great satire – of course you need a sense of humor and not take things TOO seriously . . . latest post is a gem.
Thought I’d share a bit of a Marvel comic that came from Spain (circa 1978 – 1979).
My first wife brought it back from her tour of Spain, France (at night on a train), Italy and Greece. It was one of those “climb-the-steps-to-the-Trevi Fountain”, “throw-coins-in-the-fountain”, “make-a-wish” (“Three Coins in the Fountain” – remember that song?). So i got the Marvel comic (in Spanish) and a t-shirt from Greece, can’t complain.
The mag is larger than the comics here in the U.S. – anyway, the issue is dedicated to las ARTES MARCIALES – ole! (sounds like ‘al-ay’), titled “Dos Rios” – revista para adultos.
I’m going to dump some fotos without text . . . enjoy.
Can’t find any reason for the “adult” sticker . . . holdover from the days of the Inquisition I assume.
Here’s a few from the 3rd section . . .
. . . a nice shift in perspective in the above panel . . .
Last section . . . ALIENS!!!
The last page (above) is very “Buck Rogers” – the rocket ship. This brings to mind the “ignition and lift-off” sequence in “Deep Throat” . . . . don’t ask me “why?” – uh hunh, uh hunh!!
Back cover . . .
Beats the crap out of some of the manga and most of the anime available today . ..
