Gold Key Comics

My dad told me about these comics he used to have as a kid (among the other better known ones). I love the artwork of these old comics, and i’ve been looking for them at all the comic book stores, but can’t find any…

I can probably get hold of them online, so its something i’ll look into. Does anyone have any of the older 50s/60s comics stashed away?

You found me…

Yes, I’ve been gone for 5 months, i didn’t mean to abandon you my Nerd Knights, but it was not in vain!!! I moved to a new country 5 months ago (now living in Sydney, Australia), and you’ll be proud to know that I’ve been doing my geek duty of catching Pokemon near the Opera House (among other things)…

The geek culture and fandom following here is definitely way higher than it is in Africa, so it’s really awesome to finally find a like-minded community to roam with.

Fan Art Friday #24

As per theΒ Merchandise Monday #44Β post, I am celebrating the Star Wars Rebel Fleet this week…

Luke Skywalker Drawing

Luke Skywalker Drawing

This is my completed all ink drawing of Luke Skywalker. To see the work in progress of this drawing you can refer to Fan Art Friday #22Β 

I have other work in progress pictures for this, but i didn’t want to swamp the post with them. The pilot outfit is my favourite look for Luke – even though he is a Jedi and probably should be depicted with a lightsaber (in a traditional rendition of his character – but not today).

Merchandise Monday #42

You shouldn’t get stuck in traffic with Robocop’s Ford Taurus police car! My brother and I dug up our toy car from the original Robocop:

Robocop Police Car

The toy car we have is kind of beat up (because we actually played with it), only in our old age have we realised that we should never have played with some of our toys – buy hey, kids need to have fun and live a little too:

The toy Robocop police car is one of those pull/drag-back wind-up cars. When you release it; it propels the car according to the distance you cranked up on reverse:

We used wind-up cars like this as bowling balls; to knock over rows of lined-up villains. Do you have any cool vintage toys to share with us?

DC Hero Height Comparison Chart

So a while back I put up a post with a height comparison chart of our favourite heroes. A fellow blogger has brought the DC Hero height comparison chart to my attention:

Rounding up (because we never round height down) my height most closely reaches that of Nightwing. He’s cool, I like his outfit. I could definitely go to work dressed like that every day. Looks comfy. Who is your height the closest to on the chart?
