Good Show Sir Comments: Before Frank Frazetta got a hold of him, 1950s Conan was a more happy-go-lucky, fun guy.

2. “I’m the original Dick Blade!”

Published 1955, 1957

We have here a trio of Honourable Mentions since these are e-books and technically not being photographed sitting in our sweaty hands. But the “publisher” Phoenix Pick informs us that you can own an actual dead-tree book version of the same. The odds are vanishingly small that any book versions of these titles would ever be found in what few book stores still exist. So let’s have our fun with these e-book pix nicked from the Intertubes. I see some vestige of an artist signature on one of these. Go figure. But none of my usual sources gives any hint who they might be. So Unknown Artist Institute it is.

Good Show Sir Comments:

1. He-man and Cat-in-the-Hat take on flaming Gummi-Bear monster.

2. Stop wearing the chamois, son. I’ve got to dry the car.

3. Don’t think you’re setting a foot outside wearing that strapping outfit!

It’s a Two-fer Tuesday – A Pair of Parafaith Wars!

Kendall Art Direction: I said I want him studly, you can see his 12-pack through the form-fitting metal space suit! … Well, why else do you think it’s called form-fitting?!

You know what? For the audiobook, just ditch the spacesuit; just show us the 6-pack. … Yes, I said 6-pack; we can’t afford that 12-pack – it’s just an audiobook!
