Prior to our last family road trip, my Dad bought my son (age 9) a big box of comic books (over 100), ranging in dates from the mid 1980s all the way up to the early 2000s. It was a nice gesture, but my son never opened a single one, opting instead for games on his Nintendo DS and watching movies on our iPad. When we got home, my son said that I could have the comics. Win/win, I say.

I began flipping through the comic books last night, and right away this ad (from the May, 1985 issue of “Conqueror of the Barren Earth”) jumped out at me.


I guess after E.T. finally phoned home, this guy got the gig. His name was “FlibbleBrubiktechnicon,” which loosely translates to “royalty free.”

I'm into old video games, old arcade games, old computer games, writing, photography, computer/network security, and of course, the 1980s!
