Mystery Science Theater 3000: XXX
For those of you who have one (or possibly 30 now) of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 collections, please skip to the third paragraph.
Welcome new friends. You’ve heard about this show, possibly read an article in a magazine or seen it referenced on some other show you watch: but what exactly is it? Basically, it’s a show about a guy and his two robot friends aboard a space ship who are forced to watch old, cheesy movies by mad scientists. To get through it, they make wisecracks during the movies, a comic call-and-response. It was on TV for ten years. There’s a feature film, too. That’s the gist of it. You know enough now. Read on.
Okay, we’re back on for four more of you know what, with you know who getting all kinds of nutty. Enjoy.

Strange Suspense: The Steve Ditko Archives Vol. 1
Before Spider-Man and Dr. Strange, the legendary comic book artist Steve Ditko was conjuring all manners of horrors at his drawing table. In his first two years in the industry (1953 and 1954), Ditko drew tales of macabre suspense that were not yet hobbled by the imminent Comics Code Authority (adopted in October 1954). These stories featured graphic bloodshed, dismemberment and blood-curdling acid baths as the ugly end to the lives of the dark and twisted inhabitants of Steve Ditko’s imagination. Strange Suspense features spectacular full-color reprints of every story from those first two years of his career. Full-color illustrations throughout

THE EC ARCHIVES: TWO-FISTED TALES VOLUME 3
Before Two-Fisted Tales burst onto the scene in 1950, war comics were largely unsophisticated, focusing only on action and adventure—wartime propaganda, essentially. But under the editorial direction of Harvey Kurtzman—who also penned the majority of the stories therein—Two-Fisted Tales dared to examine all the horror and madness to be found on the battlefield. Collecting Two-Fisted Tales issues #30–#35 in fully remastered digital color.
The truth about Veil leads even more eyes to focus on the strange young woman found wandering out of an empty subway tunnel. Passions run high around her as the body count increases, but is she just an object of desire—or a force to be reckoned with in her own right?
