Creepy Presents Steve Ditko HC

Creepy Presents Steve Ditko HC
Making a lasting mark on comics as the co-creator of Spider-Man, Steve Ditko veered away from the mainstream and into darker territories at the end of the sixties, especially with his work in Creepy and Eerie! Warring wizards, paranoid goons, persistent heroes, and otherworldly domains dominate the diverse tales in this handsome hardcover collection-with fifteen of the sixteen stories written by fellow comics icon Archie Goodwin.

* New introduction by Mark Evanier!

Star Trek Enterprise Nx-01 1/350 Model Kit

Star Trek Enterprise Nx-01 1/350 Model Kit
The last Star Trek series was Star Trek: Enterprise, and it chronicled the exploits of the crew to man the first interstaller spaceship named Enterprise. Though the NX-01 was a predecessor to Captain Kirk’s iconic Enterprise, the NX-01 featured a sleeker appearance and claimed an audience all its own. This rerelease of the 1/350-scale kit by Polar Lights allows modelers the chance to complete their set of the early Enterprises in 1/350 scale. At 24″ long, the ship’s size is impressive. This reissue includes a new dome base with metal tube support.
