Marvel Classic Characters - The Fantastic Four #4: The Thing

Marvel Classic Characters – The Fantastic Four #4: The Thing
Benjamin Jacob “Ben” Grimm, better known to the world as the Thing, has become one of the best-known comic-book characters of all time. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, he pilots into space on the fateful mission that results in the creation of the Fantastic Four. Transmogrified into an orange humanoid monster, the Thing nevertheless retains his sense of humor, his bright blue eyes, and a big ol’ heart of pure gold. His trademark battle cry, “It’s clobberin’ time!” is world famous.

This ongoing character lineup presents these characters just as they originally appeared, but the statues feature a rougher surface texture, visible seam lines, and other slightly distressed aspects, such as paint-application techniques. Sculpted by Yoe! Studio.

Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde HC Vol. 05 Happy Prince

Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde HC Vol. 05 Happy Prince
By: P. Craig Russell
The Happy Prince is arguably the most famous and well loved of Oscar Wilde’s nine fairy tales, rivaled only by The Selfish Giant. It is also a very timely tale at a time of controversy over the increasing chasm between rich and poor.

The Happy Prince has lived a life of opulence but has died young, and his soul inhabits a beautiful ruby encrusted statue covered all over in gold leaf. From his perch high above the city he is witness to all the poverty, misery, and hopelessness in which his people have been living.

When a small barn swallow in flight to the warm south ahead of the approaching winter stops to rest upon the statue the Happy Prince prevails upon him to delay his travels in order to remove his gold leaf a piece at a time and shower it upon the poor citizens.

Out of love for the Happy Prince the swallow does his bidding. As the days pass the Prince’s beauty is stripped away and as winter sets in the bird’s fate is sealed.

In the spring the townspeople finding only a dull statue with a broken lead heart and a dead bird consign the worthless objects to the ash heap. Only an emissary of God recognizes them as the most valuable treasures of the city and brings them to the gardens of heaven.

Frazetta Funny Stuff HC

Frazetta Funny Stuff HC
Frank Frazetta! He’s been rightfully called ‘The Grand Master of Fantasy Art’! But, it’s little known that Frazetta also conquered other worlds in the Golden Age of Comics, as shown in his Donald Duck-ish funny animal and hilarious hillbilly comic book stories.

Even those aware of this wonderful Frazetta art don’t know the extent–this book is a whopping 256 page, large-format pages! Did we mention ferocious, terrifying wolves and swampland creatures in the plethora of animal stories illustrations as only Frazetta could draw them?

There’s also lions and tigers and bears–oh my!–before Frazetta’s famous paintings captured the same subjects. But wait, there’s more! (As they say.) You’ll see the roots of the Frazetta Girl in the sexy Kathy teenage girl adventures. And there’s the hot Daisy Mae-look-alike, Clarabelle, in the hillbilly hi-jinks stories of her beau, Looey Lazybones (Holy Li’l Abner!).

The introduction is by the famed cartoon director Ralph Bakshi who well knew Frazetta and closely worked with him when they co-produced the animated feature film, ‘Fire and Ice.’ Bakshi shares rare insights, anecdotes, photos and Frazetta drawings.

And Bakshi has created a special painting of Frazetta and himself as funny animals for this beautiful hardcover full-color coffee table book! Frank Frazetta’s Funny Stuff is edited and designed by Eisner award-winner Craig Yoe.

Mr Fixit Hulk Statue
Thanks to his exposure to gamma radiation, Bruce Banner would, when enraged, transform into a giant, savage creature called the Hulk.

This cunning, erudite Hulk worked as a Las Vegas bouncer and wore a tuxedo with a white jacket, and now fans can add this 13 1/2″ tall statue of Mr. Fixit, sculpted by Khurram Alavi, to their collections.

One thought on “This week at your comic shop – 4/25/2012

  1. Marvel has always offered smiling superheroes, sunny settings and stories filled with irony, while DC has always published serious superheroes, dark settings and thoughtful stories: think about the unforgettable “Seduction of the Gun”, or the arc about the Green Arrow sidekick become drug addicted. Yes, of course each publisher made some exceptions (Superman has a sunny setting, while Daredevil is a dark superhero, and so on), but their trend has always been the one I just described. Well, when Marvel decides to make an exception and publish a dark series, it’s usually a masterpiece. That’s why I suggest you to read the brand new solo series Hawkeye recently got.
    There’s a big Daredevil influence in there (which thrills me a lot, since I’m a big fan of the man without fear). I instantly thought to Matt when I recognized Aja’s art: he drew some issues of Daredevil, and his style perfectly ties with the noir atmosphere of the series. Then I recognized some wonderful tributes: Hawkeye uses a card as weapon, exactly like Bullseye used to do, and he throws a wet dog on a counter, which really reminds of the panel in which Daredevil throws a wet Nuke on a table, in the last chapter of Daredevil: Born Again. Hawkeye has the kind of magic that makes you say “This is an instant classic”, exactly like I thought when I started to read Lemire’s Animal Man.
