Stevie Nicks Leather and Lace

1986 was the year I first saw this video from a compilation of Stevie Nicks promo's called "I Can't Wait", it ran for only twenty six minutes and featured the following songs:

Stop Draggin' My Heart Around /Stand Back / Leather and Lace / If AnyoneFalls / Talk to Me / I Can't Wait.

This is the copy from back cover: In the mid-70's, when Stevie Nicks joined the already popular Fleetwood Mac, her highly distinctive, deeply sensual voice, and her intensely personal songs immediately helped propel the band to supergroup status. For her part in their immense popularity, she has emerged a major figure in contemporary music. As of 1986, she has released three albums on her own and they all achieved platinum-record status. Each is distinguished by several huge hit singles and videos, and they have been collected here for the first time. From "Bella Donna" comes her concert video of "Leather and Lace" and her haunting duet with Tom Petty on "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around." Hits from "The Wild Heart" album are the defiant "Stand Back" and the sensually choreographed "If Anyone Falls." From "Rock A Little," two hits are featured, "Talk to Me" and the title track video of "I Can't Wait." Both are stunning visual extensions of Stevie's compelling and truly unique mystique. In all of rock and roll, there is no one quite like Stevie Nicks. Now her solo video debut is here. And the wait is over.

Alan Moore's Essay: Sexism in Comics

I "borrowed" the following scans and text from mechanicaljewel at Live Journal.com. I fondly recall the comic, "The Daredevils" from which they are lifted, it featured reprint comics and new editorial and comic-strip material, notably "Captain Britain". I thought it deserved to go 'viral'. To read the text click on each scan for the larger version.

Invisible Girls and Phantom Ladies: How far have we come?

Back in 1983, Alan Moore wrote a 10-page article on the portrayal of women in comics and the presence/lack thereof of female creators. It was serialized in Marvel UK's The Daredevils #4-6.

It's really interesting to see things like this, written 25 years ago, and to address the question 'how far have we really come?'










British Marvel Apes Colour Pictures

These images were printed on the back cover of Marvel's "Planet of the Apes" comic which was published in the U.K. from October 1974 to February 1977 when it was merged into the "Mighty World of Marvel" weekly comic. The U.K. Apes comic also included some interior black and white text and photo features about the Apes T.V. series that were never published in the U.S. edition of the magazine. I will scan and post these extra text features at a later date...
