Welcome to Coolasscinema.com! This is a site dedicated to the propagation of strange and exciting cinema (and television) from all over the world as well as America's own grand tradition of exploitation cinema classics. From the front (and back) seats of drive in's across the nation, to the sleaze pit theaters of New York's famed 42nd street, to the comforts of home watching fantastic cinema on the Late Show, remember those classic (and sometimes classless) films of old and even discover some new ones.
With the popularity of the new CAPTAIN AMERICA movie, I thought I'd display a few of the comics I have. All of these were given to me by my uncle and the condition of them ranges from "reader copy" to what I'd determine as Fine/Very Fine. The years of publication range between 1964 and 1973. Above is the first Silver Age appearance of The Red Skull.
Iron Man debuted in TALES OF SUSPENSE issue #39 and the comic became a two-fer with Capt. America with number 59. This title officially became CAPTAIN AMERICA with issue #100.
This is the earliest AVENGERS issue I have. Capt. America was discovered encased in ice in issue #4. Superheroes like Hulk, Thor and Iron Man were the popular members of the team.
This is a good one here wherein the Avengers battle it out with Dr. Doom. The cover for this one is quite good especially in displaying the confidence and villainy of Doom.
Namor, the Submariner is a unique character amongst the Marvel superheroes. He's not really a good guy, nor a bad guy. He's one of the earliest ever comic characters from Marvel and has either sided with, or battled against probably every major comic book character from Stan Lee's stable of heroes. Here, he's battling Capt. America. This issue was part of an 'Avengers vs. The Defenders' angle. THE DEFENDERS being a team of rotating members, but usually featuring characters such as Namor, The Hulk, Silver Surfer and Dr. Strange among a bunch of others.

I've been a huge movie buff since childhood catching old horror and monster flicks on Shock Theater and kung fu movies at the drive-in during the late 70's and early 80's. I've had a long time fascination with, and appreciate all genres of fantastic cinema, good and bad. One fans cheese is another fans juicy steak. I like both equally and seldom find a film I truly dislike as I will find something of interest in just about anything. The bulk of the films or tv series' seen here are mostly from my childhood, or films I own in what has become an Amazing Colossal DVD collection.
