Yes, that is a to-scale replica of Kaneda’s bike from Akira. Apparently, there are lots of folks out there who have tried to hobby one of these together.

Since I don’t know how to ride, I’ll settle for one of Sideshow’s 1/6 scale replicas, with functioning lights!

Wertham’s Most Wanted

mysteriousadventures11

Now this is a great treat.

To celebrate Banned Books Week, Stephen St Walley has provided a cornucopia of links to comics Fredrick Wertham mentions in his now infamous book Seduction of the Innocent. These are the scandalous (and not so scandalous) books that Wertham used to push for a ban on comics. I’ve only read a smidgen of the selections myself (the EC titles and some Ditko tales from The Thing), but I can’t wait to paw through some of these.

Take a trip back to the bygone days of scraped knees and grass stains with this fun collection of photos showcasing neat playground equipment from the 1970’s. I played on a couple of these items myself.

Also check out this awesome playground replica of the Eagle spacecraft from Space:1999!
