Follies of the Mad Men #170


Now that PBR is a hipster beer, I wonder if they will revive this old ad campaign which is like some Twilight Zone episode where humans have been turned into hideous 2-D ribbons.

Original ad here.

Not embeddable, but definitely worth a visit to Facebook.

Jack Kirby Omnibus

If you enjoy old school comics, especially by the master, Jack Kirby, you'll want to purchase the volume depicted at right. It's full of Silver Age weirdness in the unselfconscious manner of the day.

Here's my favorite example, from the story titled "I Was Big-Game on Neptune."


An Earthman is kidnapped and finds himself in prison with five other beings, all uniquely bizarre. Pretty hard to mistake one for another, right?


Not according to our hero, who has to label them for ease of identification, with hard-to-distinguish-at-a-distance nametags!

I love the expression on the beaky face of the orange guy. He's thinking, "This guy is dumber than a bag of Saturnian hammers!"

Non-human Barbie

Did you know that there were non-human Barbie dolls? Maybe if I were the parent of a little girl, this would be old news to me. But it's not. And to my eyes, it's weird. Does Mermaid Barbie have sex with land-dwelling Ken? Does she leave sea-slug trails all over Barbie's Malibu Dream House? The mind boggles.
