Secret Society of Super-Villains #12
It’s the hottest stars of the late ’70s: Lynda Carter, Farrah Fawcett-Majors, Starsky & Hutch, and Rocky!
I find it odd that for Starsky & Hutch and Rocky they use the character names, while Lynda Carter is just herself rather than Wonder Woman. And in a crossover note – did you know that Lynda Carter actually guest starred in Starsky & Hutch? Yep, it was a two-part episode in 1976! Unfortunately, she didn’t play Wonder Woman in it, though.
I don’t really know a whole lot about ALF, so I don’t really have much to say about this. As a kid, I wasn’t allowed to watch anything with a laugh track/laughing studio audience (yeah, I know – everyone’s got their own childhood trauma), so I never actually saw it back in the day.
Apparently this comic ran 50 issues, which means it actually ran about the same length as the show (4 season) – not bad for a TV spinoff comic!
Wait a minute – what’s this about repairing broken TVs and radios? You don’t repair broken electronics, you just buy new ones!
Times have certainly changed! I wonder how many people are out there these days who could actually repair a TV – probably not a whole lot anymore!
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century #7
Ah, to be young – so much stuff you want, but so few options for getting the money for that stuff. Well, Olympic Sales Club is here to help! Just look at all the fabulous prizes you could earn by selling cards and gifts!
So pretty much everything on here is stuff that would appeal to kids/teenagers… except possibly the crock-pot. I mean, really, what kid would choose a crock-pot over toys or video games??
And just for the record, I had a Coleco Telstar as a kid (and still have it, in fact!) – I think getting it for a few bucks at a rummage sale is a much better deal than having to sell 19 boxes of greeting cards!
