Autolite ads Part 2...

Continuing the Dick Tracy Autolite ads from the '60's.
Enjoy and feel free to send me cash.
I like gifts too.
Not picky.

What's a Doogie?

Younger fans may not recognize Neil Patrick Harris (former Doogie Houser M.D. star) unless they've seen 'Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog' (I recommend!) but he's got a Tracy shirt on so even though this is an old shot, it's A-OK in my book!

Ford Autolite ad...

First in a series, collect 'em all!
I have several of these but they were given me and I don't know much about the origins. Published in 1966, I beleive.
How many were there?
Did they appear in Life or Look or another magazine? All?
Any info would be appreciated.
Comments, as always are encouraged.

Random Harvey Cover...

What a beauty!
It's not Gould, but I have fond memories of seeing this cover somewhere as a child and wanting it more than air.
Ahh, good times.

Welcome to non-violent panel Wednesdays...

Actually, it doesn't get any more non-violent than this!

Frankenstein Meets Dick Tracy!

Sorry, not a lost cross-genre flick but it'd be cool if it was, hey?
I bought this on ebay years ago. In fact, it may be one of the first things I ever bought via the (now evil) website.
It brings together 2 of my great loves: Tracy and Frankenstein.
That's not an easy thing to pull off either, so this is cool as aych-eee-double hockey sticks!
That's Glenn Strange, by the way for those not gifted with Monster-sight-recognition.
It's a mutant power, so don't try to cultivate it.

Wigg out...

I have forgotten where this originated from but hey, there's Chief Wiggum as Dick Tracy!
With movie shirt, no less!
Tron is nice too.
