A lucky fan finds a copy of Amazing Fantasy #15 while cleaning house. This issue features the first appearance of Spider-Man! George Toman said he was cleaning up and found a box of comics his mom had stored in the attic.
Bleeding Cool said it best, “not everyone’s mother threw out the comics while they were at summer camp. No, at least one stuffed them in the attic.”
Toman took the issue and a box of other comics to his local shop. Toman couldn’t believe what the issue was worth according to the La Grange Patch. The owner of Chimera’s Comics says the issue is worth more than $10,000.
Thankfully my mom only threw out my record albums when I went off to college. Mom was clever enough to save the comics in sealed bins! Love her for that!
Does any one remember Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park? I secretly defied my parents and stayed up to watch this made for television movie and it freaked me out!
KISS use their superpowers to stop an evil inventor from destroying an amusement park. The rockers battle an army of robots including duplicates of themselves in a final showdown at the concert.
It’s camp-tastic now but as a little kid I got really scared, especially in this scene when the white werewolf robots were suddenly surrounding KISS around the rollercoaster. Here’s the promo from YouTube.
If this stroll down KISS memory lane inspires you here’s the link to buy the movie on Amazon. Unfortunately it’s only VHS.

In this tale will Cap risk everything to go back and save his best friend from death? It’s the Avengers versus Captain America for the fate of the timesteam. This trade paperback collects the 6 part series by legendary writer Mark Waid.
This is the latest news that an X-Men: First Class sequel is moving forward. Earlier it was reported that Simon Kinberg is working on a script. As I said in that post, I’m hoping some of Magneto’s children will appear. Seeing Polaris, Scarlet Witch or Quicksilver in the next 60’s set prequel would be “groovy” or “far out” if it included Magneto’s plot to stop the U.S. mission to the moon.
Grant Morrison took cheating on your spouse to a new level – a psychic level-during his New X-Men run. Cyclops is psychically unfaithful to Jean Grey with Emma Frost, former White Queen of the Hellfire Club. It’s like the old argument: Is it really cheating if there’s no physical sex? It didn’t seem to matter when Jean discovered the truth. Never cheat on a telepath with telepath!

Imagine if these were your options: Work with Christopher Nolan and Oscar Winner Christian Bale on their final Batman film or play a stripper in a movie with Channing Tatum. Well, the stripper movie is directed by Steven Soderbergh.
Adam Rodriguez of CSI Miami had to turned down a role in The Dark Knight Rises due to a shooting schedule conflict on Magic Mike based on Tatum’s pre-Hollywood life as a stripper. Rodriguez gives more details and you can see more of the Magic Mike cast in various stages of shirtlessness on Celebuzz.
Thanks for Digital Spy for this story. You have to hope this worked out for the best. No word on what role Rodriguez would have played in the Batman sequel. The 6 minute The Dark Knight Rises prologue debuts December in Imax along with the latest Mission Impossible movie.
