Coro Advertising Postcard for Paramount Alice in Wonderland Jewelry

Way back in 1996 in the early years of the WWW, I found an image of this postcard while search for 1951 Alice in Wonderland Coro jewelry stuff.  Who knew they also did stuff for the '33 Paramount film?
I later found some of the jewelry, I'll save those for another post.

Albedo 0 - All the Printings

So I'm going through a pretty significant comic book geek period right now, and I decided I'd post my full set of Albedo #0 printings - I'm fortunate enough to have even the elusive 'gold' cover which only had a 50 copy print run.  Enjoy.
1st print first state - so-called 'gold' or 'yellow' cover, only 50 printed before SA decided it was not coming out the way he wanted.

1st print second state - same as above but with drawing board now without yellow.

1st print third state - colors inverted to make it look more like a true blueprint which is what SA was really going for anyway.

2nd print - same as first print but labeled 'second printing' inside

3rd print - ditto

4th print - reissued to look like the true 1st but with the newly added red price circle.

Unexpectedly Going to Disneyana Mania this Sunday

Well I didn't think I was, but now I am.  I'll be at the Disneyana Fan Club show and sale this Sunday July 19th.  This year will be a decidedly smaller display, but thanks to the generosity of Erin & Robby I will be there.  Hope to see you too!

A Few Last Minute Additions

So it looks like we'll have more room for stuff on the trip out to LA for the DFC Disneyana Expo, so we've added a few more items to the ever-expanding haul including:

  • A nearly full run of Belgian Mickey Magazine comics 1-318, missing only 4 issues
  • 7 Dalmatian figures from the very rare Seven China series, which predates the film and Enesco series by 2 years
  • A full service for 8 of Fantasia-inspired Fantasy Silverplate by Oneide, including reproduction pattern catalog with Fantasia art
  • A beautiful Vernon Kilns Milkweed Dance Carafe
  • A full tea set from English company Weetman in pastel colors
  • An exceptionally rare Disney WWII theatrical program from Dec 10, 1941 advocating the US entry to the war.  It should be noted that this was printed prior to Pearl Harbor but for a performance 3 days after Pearl Harbor.  One of only 4 known copies.
  • A near-complete run of Persistence of Vision magazine, missing only issues 8,9
  • An exceptionally rare Canadiana Pottery figure of the Pegasus from Fantasia
  • A rarely seen Donald Duck pirate flag only sold at the Pirates Shop in Disneyland waaaaay back when
  • Very rare Fantasia R70 door panel poster
  • A set of 1951 Walt Disney Character Merchandise Division Catalog pages
And a whole lot more.  I'll try to post photos of some of these items in the coming days.
