Another new book for the 30th Anniversary of the WILD STARS!
WILD STARS: THE BOOK OF CIRCLES -- RECALIBRATED Hardcover is back in print. This new edition not only replaces the sold out 25th Anniversary hardcover (even the guy selling it for $200 on Amazon is sold out), this new 30th Anniversary edition is printed on heavier stock paper and, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A COLLECTED EDITION, the color is restored to the pages reproducing the outer and inner covers from the 7-issue Volume 3 run of comics. Shown below are the 2-page title spreads from the black and white trade paperback, and from the new hardcover.
Again, the entire book is not in color. Only the pages reproducing the outer and inner color covers from the original comic books.
All three books are also available locally at either Collector's Edition or The Comic Book Store, where you can ask about getting your copy signed. Every copy of anything Wild Stars signed this year will include a 30th Anniversary Stamp!
This stamp will be discontinued at the end of the year!

This book is real and unaltered. The top quote is from the text.
The bottom quotes are some of the most common from the era of the Second Doctor, Patrick Trouton.
It was a runing gag that Jaimie, a medieval Highlander whom Doctor had saved,
would start each new adventure with a brogue variation of:
"Doctor! Would you look at the size of that thing."
At some point soon after, they were running for their lives.
All of the Doctors often advised; "Run! Run!"
If you've never been introduced to Doctor Who, or only seen shows from the New Millennium, the older mythos can be difficult to know where to start -- with so many decades of television history to chose from!
The next Comics History page is devoted to the legendary Carl Barks.
Carl Barks was always one of my favorite storytellers, being both an exceptional artist and extraordinary storyteller. It was a rare combination.

I've added another section to try and dispell a common misconception about the comic book industry.
Comic Book Store owners always get a bad rap, as the public perception is that we're all like the rude, Simpson's Comic Book Store Guy, lazing around, surrounded by nothing but food and big stacks of Super-Hero comics.
Like a Super-Hero, my other hobbies involve a mask and breathing apparatus, specialized training that includes rescue, dangerous activities and encounters with deadly animals, plus travel around the world to exotic locations, including a trip down the road to a lost civilization.
These are the incredible, but true adventures of a masked Comic Book Store Guy:
We've all heard of Good Luck Charms.
Here are my experiences in surviving an extremely potent Bad Luck Charm.
Decades ago I read a comment by award-winnning science-fiction and fantasy writer Michael Moorcock, who refered to writing as an act of exorcism.
Nothing here to do with publishing or such. This page is a community service where I share, for the benfit of others, my experiences in dealing with lightning, felled trees and insurance companies. Even included a recent tornado experience.
