Finally a place to rest my head

I just had a minor freakout walking past the claw machine at the grocery store. Inside was a mini pillow with Captain America on it featuring the art of...Frank Robbins!! Pretty much the only time Cap has ever looked badass was when FR was drawing him (outside of Kirby obviously). Weird too, cause Robbins is one of the more excoriated artists among mainstream comics nerds. Frank Robbins is the last dude I'd expect to see gracing any kind of Marvel merch. I woulda tried my luck, but we were there with our kid and there was a big stuffed Brobee right next to the Cap pillow. I mean, I love FR, but I got a fatherly reputation to protect. Sheesh. It does however me wonder what else they got in that claw machine: A plush Bill Everett Sub Mariner? a Carl Burgos Human Torch beer koozy?

BTW: I'm not the only nerd flipping over Frank Robbins in claw machines.

The actual pillow below. Would be a good choice of bedding next time you plan on spending a couple decaded in suspended animation.

Teenagers from Mars

Special behind the scenes look at the making of. It took me forever to come up with a cover for this issue. Out of practice, I guess. I like to do covers that aren't directly related to the contents, but maybe that's a bad idea for sales. You could say that this one is tangentially related.
