BOOM! We start off today with an interesting (and slightly wacky) look back at the unprecedented and unusual hype that DC Comics used when Jack King Kirby migrated over from Marvel back in 1970.

Jon K regularly shares a bizarre collection of images of on and off-model BATMAN toys, games and other merchandise (both licensed and unlicensed) from around the world over at THE BATCAVE TROPHY ROOM. Check it out Bat-fans!

Ed Carey’s early 20th Century comic strip DICTIONARY JACQUES premieres at BARNACLE PRESS with more than 20 examples from 1912 and 1913. The site describes the vintage strip thusly–”The situation is simple enough: Jaques is a Frenchman who relies on his dictionary to understand his surroundings, but misinterprets the definitions he reads.”

This was posted last March but I was alerted to it today through the site http://sekvenskonst.blogspot.com/ . It’s a rare 2 page Don Rosa story published only in Norway back in 1998! Technically it is NOT a Disney duck story although you do have a familiar-looking anthropomorphic duck, his nephews, his lucky cousin and his inventor friend. Nudge-Nudge. Wink, Wink!
