And now some REAL HOROR - The Horror of WAR!
The two stories below show the difference the Comics Code had on even the "Combat"genre - both feature nice art by another neglected artist - Bob Powell. Compare the tone and content of "Death Rides the Bomb-Bay" with the later "Headline Happy". Trust me... there's a BIG difference!
Death Rides the Bomb-Bay
...and for you fans of the old SF pulps... (yeah, i know this is a re-post... just deal with it OK?)
I Flew In A Flying Saucer Part 1
I Flew In A Flying Saucer Part 1
And NOW - THE SOUND......
First up, is an 8 part, self-contained dramatization from 1946 of a nuclear attack on the good old U.S. of A. by "Nation X" (this would be before the Julius & Ethel Rosenberg incident...go ahead, google it up if you don't know what i'm talking about....this will all still be here when you come back). With an all-star cast including Henry Fonda, Glenn Ford, J. Carroll Naish and many more, i get the impression that this was big-time in its day. By today's standards it's wildly scientifically innacurate and melodramatic, but still entertaining and insightful.... BOOM BOOM....

PS. To all and anyone who says i have too much free time...
a) Do y'all think i won the "Time Lottery" or something? Maybe i worked long and hard to get to where i am today... doing what i like doing, and pretty much in control of my own time (and destiny for that matter).
b) i actually think that there is NO SUCH THING AS "FREE" TIME - THE COST OF THIS TIME IS YOUR LIFE! GET IT?
(...now go outside and DO something, will ya?)
