STUFF MY KIDS DREW: CANNONBALL!



Stuff My Kids Drew is a new weekly series where I share the artwork of my children who are ages six and three.  

This is an original by my daughter who is three. I don't remember if she explained the picture to me, but there is a good chance that this is a picture of a kitty cat or perhaps a princess.

This is an original by my son who is six. His drawing is of two pirate ships battling on the high seas. Cannonballs are being fired, one of the ships is hit, and the impact is shown by the BONK caption.

Go ahead and enjoy The Breeders since we are on the subject of cannonballs.

KAV'S COMIC DISCOVERIES: A JACK KIRBY BIO

Anand 'Kav' Kaviraj is the master of Silver Age Comics. He finds some strange and wonderful things in those old school comics. Today he has discovered a nice bio of Jack Kirby.

Here is a special treat for Jack Kirby Fans! From the Kamandi #32 "Giant" issue comes an awesome bio of THE KING! The name 'Kamandi' comes from where he was raised-the underground bunker 'Command D'. Kamandi is probably my favorite of Kirby's 'Fourth World' bronze age works. The stories are so lively and imaginative and the characters so memorable, while the art is some of the best. I highly recommend Kamandi for those who haven't read it, but stick with the Kirby books, not the later stuff. The Demon and Eternals are my second favorites. Better collect this stuff now because prices on Ebay are steadily climbing. Same with his Thor books-a very good investment as they are starting to spike. The Fantastic Four is already pretty well valued so you won't see many bargains there. Interest in Kirby is resurging and I myself got caught up in it. Didn't really like his stuff when I was younger but the older you get the more you can see the genius. I got about 20 Thor comics from a buddy then my hunt began and now I have 1.5 longboxes of Kirby!

KAV'S COMIC DISCOVERIES: DR DOOM AND THE DUMB ALIENS

Anand 'Kav' Kaviraj is the master of Silver Age Comics. He finds some strange and wonderful things in those old school comics. Today he has discovered a very bad trade in Fantastic Four #16.

Ok this is a weird one from Fantastic Four #16. Dr Doom is trading the Fantastic Four to an alien race and apparently it is worth it to them to have a guy who can become a bridge, some dude to pound rocks, a human torch because they aren't advanced enough to develop flame throwers even though they have advanced beam weapons etc., and YIKES....a scullery maid! Sue Storm definitely needs a celebrity makeover! For this they trade world-conquering technology to Doom. They're like those little kids that you can trade a 'big' nickel for a 'small' dime. They must have got off the short spaceship I guess.

KAV'S COMIC DISCOVERIES: SUPERMAN THE MERMAN?

Anand 'Kav' Kaviraj is the master of Silver Age Comics. He finds some strange and wonderful things in those old school comics. Today he has some beef with Silver Age Superman comics.

In my opinion, Silver Age Superman is kinda slow on the draw, and this cover helps confirm it. Supes says he 'changed himself into a Merman so he could join Lori Lemaris under the sea'. Uh, dude, you are SUPERMAN, so you didn't have to turn yourself into anything to go live under the sea. Ok, if you go to the desert do you have to turn yourself into a Camel-Man? THINK people THINK!
