Just a few picts to celebrate Kirby’s 100th Birthday. The Monsters on the Prowl is one of my favorites. It Came out in April 1972. Has three stories: A Roy Thomas Kull, Steve Ditko short, and they saved the best for last … a short by Jack Kirby.
The others are also from my personal collection. A little beat up, but luv em anyway!
What’s better than a robotic dog with a 6668 Quantum Processor brain and Nikocell S474
camera eyes … a networked pack of robotic dogs with 6668 Quantum Processor brains and Nikocell S474 cameras eyes. In Rob Cohen’s Red Dog, adapted by Andi Ewington, the wolfpack takes on a new meaning as this team of cyber hounds come together under young Kyle’s expert training.
This cinematic and entertaining western themed sci-fi read comprises all the good basics: an off-world mining colony on the dusky planet Kirawan; shared by its new human residents and primitive war-like indigenous bug-eyed alien population. Kyle, the only child on the planet, does his best to survive amongst the adult population, alongside his superior engineered robotic K-9 companions, and slightly dysfunctional family.
The plot is familiar, but the vivid visuals and fast-paced story telling keeps you hooked wanting for more. After all. who can’t relate to the love of a young boy for his android dogs.
Here is the quote:
