Marty BaumannToybox Time Machine – A Catalog Of The Coolest Toys Never Made (hardcover) ... Book
IDW Publishing, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99 29.99
A beautiful book of graphic imagination – a book that features 60s-styled ads for toys that never existed – but which take us back to the glory days of Matchbox, Big Daddy Roth, and Aurora Monster Models! The artwork is all by Marty Bauman – who would have made a heck of a toy designer back in the day – as he thrills us with full color creations like the Creepy Clutching Hand, Gorilla Rifle, Savage Cedric, Psychedelic Simians, Misterlectro, Robot Troooper, Super-Python 300, Battling Robot, Rick Mason Undercover Triple Agent, The Mighty Zorok, and lots lots more! Each fake toy gets a full color page – like an ad from the back cover of a vintage comic or kids magazine – and the creations are so cool, we really have trouble believing they never really existed! Over 160 pages, hardcover, and full color throughout. Book
(Spine has a small remainder mark.)

Duke University Press, 2016. New Copy ... $4.99 26.59
A collection of essays on a great range of musical topics from Chuck Eddy – a writer whose work you might know from Creem or The Village Voice – and who covered a surprising amount of music in his decades in publication! The book brings together columns from a four decade stretch that begins in the late 70s – as Eddy pens tight, short pieces on subjects that include the Beastie Boys, Aerosmith, TLC, Public Enemy, country Music, The Urinals, Kanye West, Mayer Hawthorne, Pet Shop Boys, John Hiatt, Motorhead, The Cure, Voivod, and many others – plus side trips on various formats, styles, and subcultures too. 326 pages, softcover, and with dozens of entries!

✨✧ Amazing AdventuresAmazing Adventures Collected Works Vol 1 – 1950 to Fall 1952 – Issues 1 to 6 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing adventures all the way through – a publication whose covers evoke the glory days of the pulps in the 30s, but whose contents are pure early 50s comics all the way through! The tales are more adventure than anything else – but have a fair bit of horror and sci fi elements in the narratives – and some of the best stories have a nice touch of humor, which makes the creepy stuff all the more striking by comparison. Art is by a top-shelf list of early 50s talents – Wally Wood, Bernie Krigstein, Murphy Anderson, Ogden Whitney, Alex Schomburg, and others – and the heavy hardcover book brings together six rare issues, all in full color.

✨✧ BewareBeware Collected Works Vol 1 – January 1953 to January 1954 – Issues 1 to 7 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beware – the contents of this book are as creepy as the cover – seven full issues of this classic horror publication from the early 50s – all presented in living, lurid color! Beware was maybe one of the grittiest of its generation – and got even more so as the issues moved on – especially in the storytelling, which was was filled with folks who made bad choices, then tried like hell to undo the consequences! The writing and artwork have a good sense of variety – and in addition to some clunkier bits, you'll find some really well-crafted gems – with artwork in this volume by Myron Fass, Roy Krenkel, Harry Harrison, Leo Hagler, and Vince Napoli.

✨✧ Dark MysteriesDark Mysteries Collected Works Vol 1 – June/July 1951 to April/May 1952 – Issues 1 to 6 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Dark Mysteries promises "eerie adventures" and it definitely lives up to that promise – as the book is filled with very creepy stories from the glory days of postwar horror comics! The publication ran alongside the early days of EC Comics horror, and also features some of that company's artists too – but was always a bit more stark and rough around the edges, which makes the eerie adventures inside seem even more spooky by comparison! There's plenty of skeletons and ghouls within – the kind of dark alley tales that made the world of early 50s America feel like it was about to become a playground for the supernatural. Artwork in this volume is by Wally Wood, Joe Orlando, Lou Cameron, Vince Napoli, Bill Fraccio, Hy Fleishman, and others. Book

✨✧ Out Of The ShadowsOut Of The Shadows Collected Works Vol 1 – July 1952 to July 1953 – Issues 5 to 9 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Pre-code horror from the excellent Standard Publications – one of the smaller companies in the b-grade world of postwar comics – but one who managed to really deliver the goods when it came to creeped-out material like this! Standard always had a great eye for a cover – and would usually follow with internal contents that were equally striking – almost noir-ish tales of folks who wandered down the wrong street, or found themselves in an unusual situation – caught up in worlds of zombies, skeletons, and even giant bats! This volume brings together the first half of the publication – which started at number 5 – and features art from Alex Toth, George Tuska, Jerry Grandenetti, Ruben Moreira, Rocco Mastroseria, Ross Andru, and George Roussos.

✨✧ Out Of This WorldOut Of This World Collected Works Vol 1 – August 1956 to November 1957 – Issues 1 to 6 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of space age sci-fi and horror comics – served up here with full color reproductions of the contents, the covers, and even the ads! The work is from the 50s powerhouse of Charleston Comics – kind of the low-budget answer to DC, but a company that brought loads of great talent into the mix – and which has a nicely rough around the edges vibe that makes most of these stories even creepier than they might be otherwise! The work is all from the comics code generation, but still has a no holds barred sort of vibe – with a very cool mix of themes and stories throughout. This volume features very early art by Steve Ditko – plus more from Bill Molno, Dick Giordano, Charles Nicolas, Rocco Mastoserio, and Sal Trapani. Book

✨✧ Strange TerrorsStrange Terrors Collected Works Vol 2 – January 1953 to March 1953 – Issues 6 to 7 (hardbound) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
With a name like Strange Terrors, you know this stuff's going to be creepy – and the rare comics within definitely live up to that promise! The publication is one of the most obscure from the world of postwar horror comics – and features lots of weird and unusual work from those late years right before the comics code was put in place to stomp out material like this – spooky stories of the supernatural, presented here in full color reproductions of the entire issues – including the fantastic covers, and even the vintage ads too! This second volume is from a period when the publication morphed into a 25 cent, triple-sized format – so it's like getting six comics in all – with artwork from Lou Cameron, Joe Kubert, Bill Molno, Pete Morisi, AC Hollingsworth, and Bernard Baily.

PS Artbooks (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic entry in the world of 50s horror comics – a publication that never got much circulation at the time, but which has gone onto become the stuff of legend, thanks to its creepy stories and early artwork from a host of later comics giants! The publication was one of a few great horror books put out by Charlton Comics – and like some of their sci-fi books, the approach is nicely loose and free – in a way that has themes and styles changing up nicely, as the company stuff plenty of content into the space of each issue – which makes a book like this extra-packed with greatness! This volume presents seven full issues of the magazine – in color, with covers and inside ads too – all for a price that's way less than one original issue will cost you! Artwork is by Steve Ditko, Rocco Mastroserio, Bill Molno, Maurice Whitman, and others. Book

✨✧ Tomb Of TerrorTomb Of Terror Vol 2 – January to September 1953 – Issues 7-11 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), 1953. New Copy Book ... Out Of Stock
We love 50s horror comics – and we especially love Tomb Of Terror – as it's one of the excellent publications from Harvey Comics in the pre-code years – filled with lurid artwork and some incredibly chilling stories! Like some of the other Harvey horror of the period, there's a really unbridled feel to this material – a no holds barred approach that goes into the same ultra-creepy territory as EC Comics, and maybe even a bit beyond – as there's less of the wit of EC, and often hardly any sort of moral to the stories at all. Lots of this work is even creepier than the average horror movie of the time – and the book does a great job of presenting the material with full color reproductions on heavy white paper, wrapped up in a hardcover volume that's a lot easier to read than the ultra-valuable vintage comics themselves. Artwork in this volume is by Warren Kremer, Lee Elias, Abe Simon, Rudy Palais, Bob Powell, Howard Nostrand, John Giunta, and others – and stories include "Colony Of Horror", "Shadows Of Death", "The Eyeless Ones", "Big Joke", and "Communist".

✨✧ Witches TalesWitches Tales Vol 2 – March to September 1952 – Issues 8-14 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), 1952. New Copy Book ... Out Of Stock
Witches Tales and a whole lot more – a wonderfully creepy assortment of stories from the pre-code horror years of the 50s – a time when anything was possible in the world of comics! Witches Tales was one of a handful of notorious publications from Harvey – who had a brief but stunning run in the horror business, as they turned out some of the most gruesome, most chilling work of the period – material that often matched the legendary EC Comics for its unbridled presentation of the material! The stories often lack any sense of moral or redeeming quality – and often, the characters hardly get any sort of happy ending – which can make these stories incredibly striking, even within a genre that was pretty gripping to begin with. Artists in this volume include Lee Elias, Joe Certa, Rudy Palais, Manny Stallman, Bob Powell, Warren Kremer, and others. – and stories include "Toys Of Terror", "The Man Who Had No Body", "Demon Flies", "Cloth Of Terror", "It", "The Flaming Horror", and more. 288 pages, hardcover, and full color.
