Builderboy's uploads
« on: April 16, 2010, 10:13:04 AM »
While I don't have a source of material to scan, I did come across a great blog posting at Golden Age Comicbook Stories blog of some stories from Youthful's Chilling Tales, issues 13 & 15, and have compiled and uploaded these. Great stuff with Matt Fox covers.

Hope you like them.

Thanks bb, I updated one of them with a second story.
DoorTree runs a fantastic blog there.  Please be sure to continue giving him full credit when you upload anything from there.
I even include a URL when I upload from him.  I wish he'd join DCM.

Thanks again,
-Yoc

Sweet, Yoc...I will grab your augmented post.  I love that DoorTree has a mix of comic and painterly stuff, very heavily leaning to Art Nouveau. Gorgeous stuff by Maxfield Parish, Wyeth, and others.

My first contribution where it is a solo venture:

Novelty's Target Comics v4 01, coming in at a hefty 58Mb...sorry about that. In my exuberance at the quality, I couldn't bring myself to compress it more.  Hope you like it.

This is the first of a handful of books I will be bringing. The others are:
 - Charleton's Battlefield Action v2 #20, July 1958
 - Hillman's Real Clue Crime Stories v7 #11, Jan 1953
 - Fawcett's Captain Midnight #53, July 1947

I also got some Lev Gleason's Daredevils, which I see are all on-site. I will make sure they are c2c.
And last but not least, I get a Fiction House Jumbo #74, which I believe I will scan to improve what is already on site.

JVJ didn't mention it, but he also gave me a primer in Photoshop restoration techniques. Huge thanks, JVJ, that was GREAT!

I am terribly excited about the books coming in!

A hearty Congrats to BB on joining the ranks of the JVJ Scanners!!

I've removed those sent to BB from the JVJ Wanted List which REALLY needs to be updated!

BB has already been involved as a scan editor so he has just increased his work load.

Hey, All!

Got back from a wedding in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area today (very beautiful place, BTW) to find Jim's box waiting for me. Holy Hannah, what box-load of goodies! Thanks for the library loan, JVJ.

Narf had indicated that somebody at DCM was a fan of Red Rabbit, so tonight, in honor of narf's request and of the arrival of JVJ's box, I hustled and wrapped up my scan of Red Rabbit Comics #15 to clear the decks for JVJ scanning.

Using techniques from a recent JVJ editing tutorial, I think these might be my cleanest edits yet.  I hope I put it in the right place....Small Press.  I saw Foxy Fagan there, but no other issues of RR, of which there are a half dozen floating around.

nice to be back!  ;D

That is fine Builder, (putting it in small press area, we can always move it if necessary). And thanks for the upload, (it's much appreciated) and if you run into any of the others "floating around"  you talked about, just upload them when you do. Thanks again for you latest upload.

Thanks BB
I can only imagine the joy of opening a box for JVJ.  I'm filled with envy though the thought of scanning that many books also fills me with fear.

An upload tonight of an upgrade to a book already on-site: Fiction House's Jungle Comics #12.

I have added to ae660's 67 pages with the missing page and an alternate cover.  In honor of the ongoing conversations about restoration of color when editing a book (quite a brisk topic with some very well stated positions...you should seek it out for a good read!), and in deference to ae660's work, I have not restored the colors on the infill page, so it won't be a shocking as Jungle Comics #11 recently was.

However, I am scanning JVJ's copy of #12 c2c, and will return with an alternate look at a restored product....later.  But first, I will try to get the balance of JVJ's box scanned.  Next up will be Jungle Comics #42, c2c. Give me a little time...I am slow and deliberate.  :-[
