Doing online search on pulp P.I. Carrie Cashin. Found some scans of her few comic book stories. Here is a 6 pager from Street & Smith’s 1941 Shadow Comics #8. Thanks to Yoc for the original scans.

In this story everyone knows she is the owner and operator of her agency Cash & Carry. In the pulps she has her male sidekick Aleck pretend to be the boss.

Great description of Carrie here.

According to writer and pulp historian Will Murray, Carrie’s stories were so popular that Street & Smith came very close to giving her own pulp magazine.

Got #DoctorWho DVD The Gunfighters from public library. Painful. First Who I may not finish. Also, got The Rescue & The Romans. Those are wonderful. Vicki rules! I’m sorry we couldn’t see Barbara beat the crap out of Nero, which I’m sure she could have.

Tumblr is sending me email that, “Your Dashboard is literally on fire.”

No! No! No!

Tumblr’s office needs a dictionary.

1967 UK comic plugging The Prisoner TV series starring Patrick McGoohan. TV Tornado #48 December 9, 1967.  The cover artist and the editor could not figure out how to explain the concept to the kids. I wonder how far ahead this comic was dated. The show started in September. Maybe the people producing the magazine had yet to see the show.

I got this from an ftp site and don’t know who did the scans.

1983 Stan & Ollie 1 pager from TV Comics #1666 11-25-83. Thanks to the  UK’s Receptacle Group for the scans. I knew about the U.S. comics but I had no idea that the boys were in the comics up to the 1980s. Is there a history or an index of just this series?

I love that the 2000 Korean romantic fantasy Il Mare, sets so many of its scenes in a comic book shop.
