Sci Fi? I'm in... took the battery ops out for their annual walk... only one didnt fire, the pesky AHI LIS robot ::)


Battery toys failing to start up was another reason to part with my robots. 

In your pic, front left, Dynamic Fighter (smoking robot)?  I see a Piston Robot, and an Attacking Martian (?) a Video Robot... nice group. 
If you want to view Paradise, simply look around and view it.

Here are scans of the first and last pages of a couple of five page Count Dragula stories from Drag Cartoons magazine:













I found Drag Cartoons to be powerfully compelling reading back in 1964. As a result my mind was already well and truly stoked and fully primed for that first issue of Creepy to hit the newsstands! Oh yes it was!

Creepy Crawley Castle Game:



It was a freebie included in Creepy #55. Kid me drew the homemade game box after reading too many Eerie Pubs.

 Thanks... always looking for more vintage Bots... several did take a bit of coaxing but I've gotten pretty familiar with the tricks of the trade

I don't know exactly but it had to be sometime in the '60s. A quick Googling turned up nada. I remember Martian Finks from kidhood but I never had any back then. They constantly turn up on eBay so they must have been pretty popular. I thought they looked cool with my other vending charms so I picked up those 3 when a good deal arose. Same for the card.

A scan of my Savage Tales #1 (May 1971):



Cover by "Big" John Buscema. 1st appearance of the Man-Thing by Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway, and Gray Morrow. Also features a Barry Smith Conan story, "The Frost Giant's Daughter", and some other early '70s monster mag coolness.

Some minor creasing around the edges, it's in FN+ (6.5). Picked that up at a small show around 15 years back for $25, along with several other Marvel monster mags in the VF range for around $5 each. Cheap prices so few years ago...those days are gone, and the cheap prices with them.
