Rick writes: “I took a stab at inking a Kirby piece. I have always liked the way Jack “couldn’t” draw Spider-man, and the unique look he brought to the character.”

The Thing rocks in clay courtesy of John Catania. John writes:
“The Thing has always been my favorite comic book hero and I decided I wanted to try to sculpt him. Here is the finished product. I used hanger wire and some tape to create a pose then some aluminum foil to add bulk and then I used Sculpy clay over that. This is the first sculpt I’ve ever done and I thought it came out pretty well”.
All Hallows Eve is upon us and Marc Basile has an imaginary tale to share…
“It was back in 1959, in Tales Too Suspenseful #31 that “Beware, Gordoom the Living Pumpkin” appeared. Two teen age pranksters build a scarecrow that they hope will frighten the younger kids on their way to Farmer Brown’s annual Halloween party. The only thing is they picked a pumpkin from a field into which a meteorite had fallen, spewing cosmic radiation all over the pumpkins. And as fate would have a well placed lightening bolt strikes their creation, bringing it to life. It’s then up to Timmy and Tommy Horton to stop the monster by… well you read the ending yourself.”
