Topps (USA) Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Image Universe (Chromium Issue) Comic Art 1995 Image Universe (Chromium Issue) Comic Art 1995 LT90 - As the same suggests these shiny cards contain artwork taken from comics. Unlike, say, the Marvel franchise where different characters and comics all appear under the one brand Image Comics came up with the idea of Image Universe a realm where different comic characters may appear in the same fictional universe or corners of it, but their creators retain the rights to the characters and can leave to appear in other comics. The set includes artwork from The Savage Dragon, Freak Force, Wild C.A.T.S, Youngblood, Spawn, Cyber Force etc. and six of the cards contain pictures and text about the artists, including Erik Larsen who was behind the artwork for The Savage Dragon. The rest of the backs contain information on the pictures and comics. Size 89 x 64mm. An interesting set for fans of this genre.

Sports Time (USA) Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Marilyn Monroe 1st Series Cover Girl Chromium Series 1993 Marilyn Monroe 1st Series Cover Girl Chromium Series 1993 LT10 - It is doubtful that you will have heard of most of these American publications, but there is no denying that they are lovely pictures of Marilyn Monroe who surely boosted magazine sales. The shiny fronts are bordered in silver and there are interesting facts on the backs which also include a mini close-up of the front picture. In many ways these publications tell her story, starting with revealing model shots in men’s magazines, then more general publications and headlines comparing her with Jean Harlow before by late 1953 her popularity was enough to have a whole magazine dedicated to just her. The trouble with being popular however is that others want to be you and the 1954 issue of Tempo headlines the problem in its caption \\\"Can Marilyn meet her competition?\\\" We all know, of course, the tragic story of the lonely figure who died tragically young, but these cards remember her at her beautiful best and some of the article titles look intriguing too! Size 89 x 64mm.
