It has been VERY slow going trying to put everything in a proper order. In doing so however, I have came across some interesting items in my collection that will give my readers a look at why the Bronze Age was so great (and it is not just because that is the era in which I grew up). First up -- more "Snyderman!" Snyderman was a "superhero" character that appeared as a sort of mascot in the vintage Superhero Catalogs from the 1970's.
For people my age (or a little older...maybe even a little younger) these are beloved time capsules of our childhood! I had found one in my collection a few months ago. This time, I found an additional three catalogs! Each page was a joyous return to the days of my well spent youth! In these catalogs were the toys, comics and superhero paperbacks of the era! Here you can find items like Spider-Man web shooters, as well as the Spider Mobile, The Batmobile, Green Arrow's Arrowcar and Captain America's car! And of course they had an assortment of THE toy of the 1970's -- the MEGO Action Figures! There were super hero coloring books, quiz books and even novels featuring your favorite characters! It was the ultimate "wish book" for 70's kids! Seeing those books (and those ads) is like finding buried treasure to me!
Does anyone remember the old TV series "Police Woman?" Mr. Bronze Age does! I found a copy of "Police Woman #2: Code 1013: Assassin" by Leslie Trevor. This book, while not in mint condition, is a fine readers copy. Published in 1975, the story, based upon the show, is an original story. I prefer those books. The Starsky & Hutch and the Charlie's Angels TV tie-in books are based on actual episodes. Therefore, you know the story already. It has a picture cover, which is always a plus.
And finally, while going through one of my storage buildings, I found two mint copies of The Batman Adventures #12-- The first appearance in comics by Harley Quinn! I bought them way back when they were brand new!
In those days, I used to collect almost everything and I had books on hold at three different stores (back in the day you had to cover some ground to get your books). Two of the shops had saved a copy back for me. I decided to buy both, since it was a first appearance. I am glad that I did now. That was a stroke of luck there.
I still have several boxes in which to go through. With luck, I should find some more interesting books to share with my readers!
