Kull The Conqueror #8 (1973)
Len Wein-script/John & Marie Severin-art
While lost in a stormy sea, Kull and his followers are shipwrecked on an island believed to be inhabited by the "Cult Of The Leopard". A self-contained story including mysterious murders, villager rebellion, a mad ruler-type, lycanthropy, and swordplay.  All in all a pretty decent representation of the Sword and Sorcery genre in early 70's comics.
Ad pick: "Train at home to be a veterinary assistant". Training can lead to a career as a Lab Aide, Kennel Owner, or as a ZooKeeper!

Rawhide Kid #143 (1977)
Story and art by Larry Lieber
Reprints Rawhide Kid #45 and tells the origin of the Kid.  We also meet his previously unknown two brothers.  Simplistic, but entertaining backstory.
Ad pick: "Poster Bonanza"!  For only $2 you get five full color posters featuring such 70's idols as KISS, Hardy Boys, Farrah Fawcett, Grizzly Adams, Baretta, etc.
Hostess Ad: "Thor In The Ding-A-Ling Family". Hillbillies in a trailer floating randomly through Asgardian orbit encounter Thor and his allies.  As one hillbilly is about to bring down Thor with his "Atomic Shotgun" Sif distracts the baddie with delicious Hostess fruit pies. The drama now averted, Volstagg in a wildly out of character moment suggests they bring the remaining fruit pies back to Odin(rather than eat the snacks himself).

Rawhide Kid #144 (1977)
Story and Pencils - Larry Lieber, inks- George Roussos.  Reprints a story from RK #112.  Run of the mill western fare.  Single young woman is approached by the local baddie to sell her ranch, she refuses, bad guy starts killing her ranch hands.  A spurned romantic advance and several gunfights follow with the bad guy eveventually getting put down and the young woman agreeing to marry the gunslinger that helped Kid save her ranch. A back up story from Two Gun Kid #68 by Stan Lee and Jack Keller had an interesting twist ending.
Ad pick: Heroes World selling a "Marvel Collector's Set" for $5.50 post paid that consisted of 2001 #1, What If #1, Black Panther #1, Red Sonja #2, and Peter Parker #3.

Hostess Ad: "Spider-Man Spoils A Snatch".  While out with MJ (as Pete), Spidey foils an unnamed villain who's projected multiple images of himself during a museum jewel robbery to confuse onlookers.  The quick thinking Spidey tosses delicious devil's food chocolate cupcakes on the floor to draw out the real villain who can't resist the temptation to eat the snacks.

Chili #22 (1973)
Indicia shows copyright date from '69, so these are apparently all reprints.  Five short stories by Stan Lee and Stan Goldberg plus one uncredited single page strip.  The usual Chili fare with Chili trying to outsmart or one-up her rival Millie with her efforts often backfiring.  I find the later Chili's mostly unremarkable when compared to the Millie's of the early 60's or before.
Ad pick:  A company called Adolph's from Minneapolis, Minnesota is selling reproduction German Army helmets with swastika decals. Decals come in your choice of red, blue, or orange!  :P

ASTRO BOY - Reading the manga paperbacks, beginning with the earliest stories and following along in the chronological sequence of how the stories were originally published -- which is NOT the order in which they're printed in the 23-volume English language translation from Dark Horse Comics. So far I've read the stories originally published from 1951 through 1953 (out of the 5000+ pages that comprise the entire series). Which isn't much, really... maybe about 1 and a half books out of the 23 (but I cheated and read the 2 volumes of stories that were random 1-shot appearances in various publications, not considered part of the continuity, first).

Another thing that's slowing me down in reading the stories is that I'm pausing to watch those stories which were adapted into anime, just to see how they were adapted, what they changed or left out, etc. There were three different Astro Boy anime series, the first from 1963-1966 (only 104 of those 193 episodes were translated into English, and I don't have the Japanese DVD set), the second from 1980-1981 (51 episodes in English, missing one of the Japanese episodes), and a third series from 2003-2004 (another 52 episodes). As it turns out, the 1963 series adapted a lot of the original manga stories, but not all of those episodes made it into the English-dubbed series, and less than half the total episodes were adapted from the original manga. In the 1980 series, most of those episodes were adapted from the manga stories, and in the 2003 series, very few of the episodes were straight adaptations of the manga (they tended to mostly just mix bits and pieces of different manga stories into a new plot). But even so, a lot of the manga stories got adapted in one series or another, sometimes with the same story adapted as episodes of both the 1963 and 1980 anime. Naturally the anime series episodes' order doesn't follow the manga series order, so I'm skipping all over the place swapping out discs. It's interesting reading a manga story written and drawn in the 1950s, and then seeing how it was adapted into anime made 10, 30, or 50 years later though.

When it comes to the digests and their short, random stories, why not just read through one for an hour instead of five for twelve minutes each?

Inquiring minds want to know.  ???

That's my style. I like doing that way. Just with digests I use book marks in my books. But I read a whole comic through.
