Start Jack Kirby week with Captain Victory

As I always try to alternate posts I originally wanted to post some Jack Kirby art from FANTASTIC FOUR to celebrate his birthday but after reading this post on COMIC BITS ONLINE I decided to go with one of his later series he didn´t do for the money grabbers at Marvel or DC.


The reason why I chose CAPTAIN VICTORY  for this post is quite simple : I only have two pages from SILVER STAR and none from his other projects like the Kirbyverse at Topps Comics. And I wouldn´t even have that much material on CAPTAIN VICTORY if it weren´t for the fabulous CRIVENS ! COMICS & STUFF blog - if I remember correctly where I found the stuff.


In Germany the series - at least part of it - was published by the Condor Verlag who did their usual collage covers using a part of the page above.

Aaron Paul 37 Breaking Bad


Veronica Mars Charisma Carpenter

cult tv bikini sexbomb Charisma Carpenter who is best known as Cordelia Chase on Buffy and the spin off Angel although Today´s kids may better know her from her recurring role on Veronica Mars which means they missed a lot of scorching bikini scenes with Charisma´s huge 34Ds.


One of these days I´ll have to get the first season of Veronica Mars to find out how it all started since I came in at the tailend of that season - as usual. Besides Veronica Mars Charisma Carpenter was also in episode 11 of season 5 of Burn Notice where she showed she still has the goods.

In Germany only the first three seasons of Burn Notice have come out on DVD and right now I´m halfway through season 2. I´m not sure if I should wait any longer to see if they will do the rest someday or just get them through imports. Now that I´m invested I want to know how it plays out and there is even a spin off with Bruce Campbell´s character Sam. In any case Charisma´s funbags alone are worth the price of admission. Daimn !

Jason Priestley 47 Beverly Hills 90210

As baffling as it may seem I actually wrote about Tori Spelling - okay, mostly about her sexy dance in a hooker outfit on Beverly Hills 90210 - in a birthday post about Tiffani Amber Thiessen.


If you can call her wild fertility inducing movements dancing. She really was just shaking her big boobs in the general direction of the camera. But that she did very effectively. I never was a big Tori Spelling fan but in that scene she really squeezed her breast into a tight leather top and just pushed them straight in your face. Now that´s what I call entertainment.

What I find a bit strange is how did such a scene get approved when her father was producing this ? Should I be concerned that Daddy dearest put it in the script or does this say more about his employees. Maybe some disgruntled writers just decided to put his boss´ daughter into a hooker outfit and let her dance for him as payback for sleeping with his wife.

" Okay, Tori, do you think you can move more like a prostitute ? And we need to make the outfit sluttier. This is supposed to be a rock video. " 


I started watching Beverly Hills 90210 on the basis of Tori´s growing boobs which was a product of her Dad´s financed surgery and Tiffani Amber Theissen´s exploding chest which was a product of nature. It helped a lot that Tiffany was often in bikinis or leather hooker outfits.

Those directors got it made, they just go " Okay guys, in the next four episodes Tiffani dresses up as a prostitute. And she has to do at least one striptease and two nude sex scenes in each episode. Which is really necessary for her character. Oh yeah, and send her to my trailer for .... extreme rehearsal. We have to go over the scene ... orally. " Those horny perverts are to thank for that Tiffani was so often in bikinis on that show.


Speaking about hookers, besides appearing on Beverly Hills 90210 Tiffani also was on Saved by the Bell with Elizabeth Berkley who revealed her real stripper nature in Showgirls. The movie was called a flop when it first come out but in the meantime it has become a cult classic mainly based on Elizabeth´s stripper moves which left me no other chance than cast her as one of my alternate choices for the Nympho Supergirl from Earth XXX in my second alternatives post for casting the Justice League movie .

She would get a different origin in which her rocket was bombarded by the radiation of pink kryptonite which turns all female kryptonians into super horny blow up sex dolls. Because of the long exposure to the pink kryptonite the effects would be permanent ( instead of only temporary like usual ) and Nympho Supergirl would have different powers like sex strength, peep vision, erection vision, perv hearing, orgasmic flight, ovaric speed, tantra healing, kama sutra flexibility, olympic stamina, multiple position memory, fellatio breath and deepthroat breath. I would say she also has the power to give all men giant erections making their pulsating dicks hard enough to cut diamonds as soon as they look at her but with Miss Berkeley´s super sexy stripper moves that´s a given.


But sexbomb Elisabeth not only can lick the chrome off your steelhard pole she also has the all important " pumping pelvic thrust " move down to pat. I bet that comes in handy with that portable casting couch she allegedly has and I would not mind being at the receiving end of that a few hours.

Flash Friday : Race Against Time - part 2

Today is Otto Binder´s birthday so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to do a special edition of FLASH FRIDAY and take a break from the Paul Ryan issues with FLASH 114, part 2 of Race Against Time.


Usually I don´t like to start stories in the middle of things but the reason why I selected this issue is that Otto Binder wrote ADVENTURE COMICS 247 which introduced The Legion of Super - Heroes and in this story Wally West lands in the 31st century where he meets the Tornado Twins who will become members of the Legion. Sibling Rivalry is written by Mark Waid with art by mi paisano Oscar Jimenez with help by Anthony Castrillo. For the sake of understanding the story it´s not important why Wally keeps bouncing from one era to the next but if there is enough reader interest we may explore the worst Flash ever. It might be a good idea to go back and post the entire Race Against Time story before returning to the Paul Ryan issues because it leads directly into FLASH 119, his first issue.


Since you must be already tired of hearing me rant about how great Wally West is I´ll let Chris Sims at COMICS ALLIANCE explain why this period was the best part of the second volume of the Flash and why Wally West is the best Flash ever, for more stories from the 31st century you can find the origin of Bart Allen, a.k.a. Impulse by the late Mike Wieringo on SCANS DAILY and read about The Legionnaries Who Haunted Superboy from Superboy 206 on THE BREEVORT HISTORY OF COMICS where you can find other cool posts about Wonder Woman, Superman or Captain Marvel.

Today could have been a totally different FLASH FRIDAY as Francis Manapul celebrates his 37th anniversary who penciled the adventures shortly before the NEW 52 and into the first three years of new era.


Aww, who am I trying to kid ? I stopped reading Flash when they made Barry Allen the Flash again and retroactively changed his origin story implanting the murder of his mother. Seems like every super hero at DC has to emulate Batman now. So I can´t tell you anything about the quality of Francis Manapul´s work besides what I could gather from this video.



If scientists one day start cloning the perfect woman they need look no further for a living genetic blueprint that latin superstar and sex icon Thalia. She turns 45 and not only is she one of the nicest persons on the planet who oozes sex appeal from every pore with an incredible body AND voice. No, she also has the best stage outfits in the universe which would make other singers like Beyonce blush and her sultry fertility dance makes Janet Jackson´s patented erection inducing stripper moves look tame.


The video - or better videos as in plural - are a bit older but if Thalia is known for the most daring stage outfits she really tops herself here in what I guess is the latin version of the sorting hat from Hogwarts.



Since the video above is too short here is one with the full performance of her hit Amor A La Mexicana and it has the best quality I could find.



Our last celebrity birthday is award winning cartoonist Ted Rall at 53 whom I met at a comic convention but I am not exactly sure which one.



As that leaves me with two videos to pick freely from the vast vault here is one for my german readers about Reinhard Kleist and graphic novels.



When Wally West first started out as the new Flash he had to eat a lot to keep his body supplied with enough calories to burn through so fittingly our last video is about food. As somebody who´s been to a few countries I know that the same food can be prepared very differently and I always find it interesting to see other people´s reaction to foreign dishes. I have always believed that the things that unite us as people are more than the things that separate us and deep down people like the same things : good food, good movies, good music, good books, good comics, good art period and last but not least hot women ( or hot guys if you´re into that ).
