Red Skull Halloween Costume!

I've seen this costume advertised in the comics before, but I didn't really believe it was manufactured until I found it up for auction! Yes, they made a Halloween costume of a super-villain who's a confirmed Nazi!

Marvel Super-Heroes Puzzle!

Interesting puzzle, this one... it looks as though it used paste-ups of the original art to the Marvelmania posters, but without all the toning and shading to render them more realistically!

Marvel Super-Heroes Puzzle!

You know, the problem with doing so many different blogs is that sometimes, you get confused as to what you've posted where -- especially when you're working as far ahead as I'm trying to! I think I've posted this puzzle on the Spider-Man blog, so if it looks familiar to you, that's why!

Marvel Novels!

Here's another group of the Marvel novels, which I'm including here because of the third one, that was a collection of novellas or perhaps long short stories, including an Avengers one that eventually was adapted into the comic itself!

Marvel Novels!

These novels came out in the late 1970s, if I recall correctly. Many of them were written by established comic book writers, but Joseph Silva wrote the Cap novel you see here. There had been an earlier Captain America novel, published in the 1960s, called "The Great Gold Steal," which I believe was written by Ted White.

Anyway, I used to have a lot of these novels a while ago, and I recall them being pretty good reads! I don't recall specifically if I ever had the Cap novel, though.

Mystery Item from Argentina!

I have no idea what these were... tops for candy boxes? No idea, but they are neat, and you can see Cap's sometime-partner the Falcon on one above!

Merry Marvel Marching Society Scribble Pad!

I believe the MMMS predated Marvelmania, but I could be misremembering the chronology!
