A Sign

Originally uploaded by comics.unl

One day a staff member contacted the library about donating his personal comics collection. He had a fair amount of comics that represented the 90s collectible craze. At first I was hesitant, but then decided it would a relevant addition, since it represented a midwestern youth’s interaction with popular culture and could be of interest to scholars.

When I lifted the lid of the first long box, it contained quite a few musty comics from the 60s and 70s. I’m guessing that these were probably the first ones he owned, given to him by older siblings or friends. Carefully flipping through the stack, I pulled a random one out and was instantly glad to have accepted the donation.

The comic was From Beyond the Unknown, No. 23. Featuring a talking/pistol-packing gorilla threatening a librarian. The cover was by Nick Cardy, but the actual story was done by artists Carmine Infantino and Joe Giella. No mention of Terry Pratchett.

That series had a thing for monkeys, check out –http://www.coverbrowser.com/covers/from-beyond-the-unknown
