$3 of Retro Heaven

So I stopped in an antique store at lunchtime today.  My eyes about bugged out when I saw this random stack of old comic books for $1.00 each.  How could I pass by these?  Check ’em out for yourself!

Davy Crockett 1955

Davy Crockett 1955

Yup, Davy…Davy Crockett.   The Fess Parker Davy Crockett is still a legendary figure here at the Johnson Family Compound.  Get yer coonskin cap on and give ’em what fer, Davy!!

Mouse Musketeers (Tom & Jerry) 1956

Look, kids – it’s Tom & Jerry!  While Tom and Jerry wasn’t my favorite cartoon series, I still ate a few bowls of Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs on Saturday morning in front of the tube with these characters.  What made this find even sweeter was the cool Juicy Fruit ad on the back!  It’s like Bo Diddley said…”You can’t judge a book by looking at the cover…”

Juicy Fruit Makes You Smarter???

Juicy Fruit Makes You Smarter???

Had to make this one big so you could read the thing.  Don’t be a Dopey Dan, be a Safety Sam!!!  Oh yeah, and remind Mom to bring home a “good supply” of Juicy Fruit today!

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea - May 1947

Finally, check it out…1948,  daddy-o!  What a find, complete with a perfectly-coiffed handsome hero in a bubble-helmet diving suit.  Hey, man, where’s the air hose?  And there’s always some pesky shark guarding the treasure chest!!!

    Oh man (is the drool visible?)… That 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea cover is worth the admission price alone!

    Years ago a friend gave me a whole brown paper bag full of Boris Karlof comics! They make for great reading as I’m spinning old “Alfred Hitchock Presents” on vinyl.

      Yeah, that 20,000 Leagues mag hooked me.

      I’d love to have some Alfred Hitchcock Presents albums.

      Do you still have that old Disney characters album with “Laugh Laugh Laugh and the World Will Laugh with You” on it?
