    Those old ads are so great !

    Zryson, I've had double fusion back surgery which left me largely unable to bend or twist and am in constant pain, but gives thanks I can still walk and move.

    Kurt, congrats on the article. I've read TwoMorrows pubs for years. Looking forward to your article.

    We now know dr chimp's first name, I see. From The Anomalist --

    Karl Shuker profiles the most famous chimp in recent history. Dubbed (incorrectly) as the "missing link" between humans and apes, Oliver had a human-like head shape, smoked cigars, and walked upright.

    Our amiable ape's recent revelation on the "banned comics" thread about his cigar-smoking habit is, of course, the clincher.
    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."
    Basically, if you miss the wonder of a dog flying around in a little Superman cape, you're in the wrong hobby.

    At least you can be sure no one will get between you and those high grade comics.

    Hi hondobrode; thankyou for relating your own experience. I'm not sure my friend will ever recover from this. Let alone from the mental/emotional trauma of what has happened... To go from mobile to completely unable to do anything for yourself and unable to walk. In some ways he's been a father figure to me, but I've never had a father to compare him to. He's one of my bestest friends. Someone I trust completely. And to see him going through this doesnt quite cover how devastating it is.

    Busted. Three weeks hanging out with Cheetah and I was hooked - serves me right for going all hollywood although my appearance in My Two Dads made it all worth while but we in the missing link community prefer the term "meta" link.

    An update from the world of classic comic strip fans:

    The ilovecomix archive team is proud to announce that we have scanned over 11,000 newspaper comix from the kickstarter project (project info http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...per-collection ). About 9,000 Sundays and the rest Dailies.

    With this achievement we have started sending the images out to you with a new service called http://www.ibeam.it . This new service easily allows us to share the scans to you the way you want to receive them. The ilovecomix Archive beam is http://ibeam.it/f/ilovecomixArchive8000K so please join today.

    Oh, one quick note, if you sign up by email you could possibly receive over 800 emails so you might consider using a cloud service. Second we are now ready to give the scanned images a new home. The ilovecomix Archive does not collect paper strips (excluding Freckles and his Friend), we are just a digital archive. So the 11,000 + scanned comics are going to be listed over time on our new eBay store, http://stores.ebay.com/ilovecomixarch.

    If you have any question or need to know something please give us a shout out. Were here all the time now and want to know what you guys think.

    Your comix Preserver

    Was talking with a good friend last night and we were discussing how often people take themselves so seriously these days. Its almost like they are walking a tightrope. Everything has to be perfect. Or seem to be perfect. From their bodies to their hair to the fashions they wear and people they surround themselves with. It reminds me of all the people who are addicted to retouching photographs of themselves, freaking over the slightest imperfection.

    Visited a used bookstore. Itís got somewhat of a rough feel to it, with narrow isles and ladders to stand on to reach the upper echelons of the towering racks which go all the way up to the ceiling. On the plus side they discount new books/comics rather quickly. Case in point there was a range of DCNU 52 Hardcover for $10.00 in NM/Brand New Condition. One thing I saw that interested me very much was a bunch of DC and Marvel London annuals that I could see protruding up near the ceiling but I was less than inclined to stand on one of those ladders. Still it was an interesting experience and fun just soaking up the ambiance of the store.

    Very cool. I'm all signed up and eagerly awaiting my "beam." I'm also pretty tempted to buy some pages from their eBay store.

    A friend has offered to take me to several used stores tomorrow so depending on how my health is I might take him up on his offer for a drive out to them. I would like to go back to one store in particular, I've been there before but lost the address and its run by a middle-aged woman. She's not the friendliest manager I've ever encountered and tends to watch you like a hawk when youre in the store which makes for an unpleasant experience but the range is pretty good (if a bit pricey). There's also another store I want to check out since I heard they have huge runs of Silver Age through to Bronze Age for about a buck each.
