So I’ve been on vacation for the past couple of weeks. For the first week, my wife Marisa and I took our son on a beach vacation in Cuba, which was lovely. This past week, I’ve taken the time to go through a few of my comic books. Well, a few thousand of my comic books. This was a preliminary attempt to organize and sort some of my collection. I probably sifted through about a third of my collection over three days, sorting and arranging about 6 or 7 long boxes.

It was very gratifying, and I feel accomplished. I put together a lot of complete runs of books that had been scattered in different boxes, and found a few hidden or lost gems.

But I also found a lot of straight up crazy comics. Stuff that I have little recollection of purchasing, and yet, they are here in my house.

I present to you now some of the more crazy comics I have found that I own.

Geronimo: Last Apache Warrior

I have no idea about this book. It’s a trade paperback, and I’ve no memory of ever seeing it before. I think someone snuck it into my house.

Leonard Nimoy’s Primortals (with concepts by Isaac Asimov) #8

I will never know why the idea of space rhinos never captured the popular zeitgeist, nor whether it was Nimoy or Asimov that truly created them.

 

Magic The Gathering: The Shadow Mage #1

This book came with one magic card included in a sealed polybag. I remember buying the book only for the card. I have no idea what the card was.

 

The Toxic Avenger #7

I do not have issue #8, so I have no idea how “The Souvlaki Sewer Syndrome” ends. Wikipedia is of no help either. I am distraught.

 

Meteor Man #5-6

This was based on a movie, I know that much. But I’m sure that the movie was nowhere near as intense as this cover. That Meteor Man is angry.

Robocop versus Terminator #2 (of 4)

Wait, written by Frank Miller and drawn by Walt Simonson? The writer of “Dark Knight Returns” and “Batman: Year One”, the most celebrated penciler of Thor this side of Jack Kirby? And I only have the second issue of this mini series? Dammit! (I know Miller wrote the screenplays for the bad Robocop 2 and the terrible Robocop 3, but still!)

 

Okay, that’s all for now, but hot damn do I have a ton more of these. Hundreds of random as hell comics, and right now, they’re still strewn about my office. There will be more.
