Team - Up Thursday with John Romita Jr !

Today one of my favorite artists, John Romita Jr celebrates his 61st birthday so I thought that I should use the occassion and continue my much delayed series since I already prepared all the necessary material.

Also it´s about time to put something new on the blog even if it means that my second post about my visit to the ComicCon Stuttgart 2017 will remain unfinished a little bit longer. It seems I will have no other option that to wrap that up with all the other celebrities that were attending and maybe the rest of my general impressions before going into further detail. I don´t know why but I just can´t continue with the post so I think it´s better to cut off what I have already written even if it means that I will come to the most important part - the comics I bought - in part three.

But as it is the course I´m currently taking for the jobcenter is eating up all of my free time and I should not even be doing this post but rather get some sleep so I´m not late again Tomorrow. But like I said, John Romita Jr is one of my favortie artists and if my laptop hadn´t had to update again I could probably put at least all of the main part of this post on the blog but since that took almost an hour I don´t know how far we will come Today.

Anyway, since last year´s birthday post was all about the Epic Collection Daredevil - A Touch Of Typhoid ( and Patty´s World by Purita Campos ) this year I am posting a team - up between everybody´s favorite webslinger and one of my favorite Avengers, Monica Rambeau a.k.a. Captain Marvel ( I know she used a lot of other code names after that but I´m not going to list them all and to me she will always be Captain Marvel ). She had her debut in AMAZING SPIDER - MAN ANNUAL 16 and appeared in AVENGERS 227 where she became a member of Earth´s supreme fighting force.

Now one of the reasons why I picked AMAZING SPIDER - MAN ANNUAL 16 for Today´s post is that I am still reading the SPIDER - MAN BY ROGER STERN OMNIBUS hardcover and longtime readers of the blog know that it is a rare occassion when I post about a comic book I´m currently reading.

I got the omnibus when it was in the new and used books section of amazon at half price and while it was not as cheap as I thought it would be ( since it got held up in customs and I had to go to the Customs Office in Ludwigsburg which was so exhausting that I was out cold for two days. Additionally the packaging was so sub standard so it arrived in really bad shape ) I could not have been able to afford it at the full price. Now and then I´m a bit miffed that it has a few bumps and bruises here and there but I am glad to have it in my comic collection and can wholeheartedly recommend it to any Spider - Man fan. This is one of Spidey´s best periods and no matter if you want to re - read Roger Stern´s great stories that are so fondly remembered ( like The Kid Who Collected Spider - Man ) as they restored the amazing arachnid to his former glory or experience them as a newcomer to the Spider - Man lore or yes, even if you only want to see John Romita Jr´s progress an an artist this is a book worth your money.

Yes, these omnibus books are really heavy and if you can´t read them on a table you get a lot of workout but here you get your money´s worth with over 1,200 pages. One of the things that bugged me with the THE HANDS OF SHANG - CHI, MASTER OF KUNG FU omnibus 3 is that while it has a regular price of 125 bucks it´s only 700 pages. 700 glorious pages of Mike Zeck art - with a bit of Gene Day art thrown in - but still only 700 pages.

So for me it is overpriced and even if you can get it for 80 bucks that´s too expensive. If it´s 700 pages it should cost no more than 70 bucks.

Okay, I still bought it but only for my 50th birthday and because I had some extra money from a lottery ticket. And in all fairness, I´m always bitching about how big and heavy and expensive those omnibus books are but then I go on pimping them and telling people to buy them. Which would be weird if I did not do posts on a regular basis where I tell people when they can buy them at a bargain price. And it´s not like I´m recommending books I don´t buy myself since I already have 16 of these omnibus books.

Back to the topic of Today´s post, I have a tendency to write about the same series again and again so I wanted to pick something I had not covered in a while and since I already wrote about John Romita Jr´s DAREDEVIL issues last year and his UNCANNY X - MEN issues in May I thought it would be nice to return to his AMAZING SPIDER - MAN issues.

I thought I had already done the first post about the Hobgoblin but as always I had only planned to do that so we start with one of the best issues in the omnibus that - as you already should expect from me - has a little something something as you get two Romitas for the price of one as John Romita Sr. inked the annual. You will find a few issues of the regular series inked by him in the omnibus. Usually I post the color pages right next to the pages of original art in these posts but I didn´t want to make this post too long and prefer to have more pages in sequence. Also these are the only pages I could find from this so the point is moot in any way.  

two times

to be continued



I will have to make this part shorter

birthdays I missed but already covered

and Kelley Jones two posts one about his DC art and one about his work at other companies and

and Lynda Carter and

and Ernie Chan and

and Monique Sluyter that part got too long and I gave it a post of its own .

and Elizabeth Berkley who revealed her real stripper nature in Showgirls. The movie was called a flop when it first come out but in the meantime it has become a cult classic mainly based on Elizabeth´s stripper moves which left me no other chance than cast her as one of my alternate choices for the Nympho Supergirl from Earth XXX in my second alternatives post for casting the Justice League movie .

She would get a different origin in which her rocket was bombarded by the radiation of pink kryptonite which turns all female kryptonians into super horny blow up sex dolls. Because of the long exposure to the pink kryptonite the effects would be permanent ( instead of only temporary like usual ) and Nympho Supergirl would have different powers like sex strength, peep vision, erection vision, perv hearing, orgasmic flight, ovaric speed, tantra healing, kama sutra flexibility, olympic stamina, multiple position memory, fellatio breath and deepthroat breath. I would say she also has the power to give all men giant erections making their pulsating dicks hard enough to cut diamonds as soon as they look at her but with Miss Berkeley´s super sexy stripper moves that´s a given.

But double jointed Elizabeth not only licks the chrome off your steelhard pole she has the all important " pumping pelvic thrust " move down to pat. I bet that comes in handy with that portable casting couch she allegedly has and I would not mind being at the receiving end of that a few hours.

and real live Power Girl Leslie Easterbrook who had the most famous scene of the franchise in Police Academy 4 - Citizens on Patrol in which she emerges from a pool in a wet t - shirt .

It used to be in one post together with Janet Jones Gretzky and Becky Mullen but I had to put it in three separate post because I upgraded it with a lot of animated GIFs. I also had to give cult siren Monique Sluyter and the rest of the Tutti Frutti sexbombs their own post to shorten it.

birthdays worth mentioning

July 23rd

Cult tv bikini sexbomb Charisma Carpenter turned 47 who is best known as Cordelia Chase on Buffy and the spin off Angel although Today´s kids may better know her from her recurring role on Veronica Mars which means they missed a lot of scorching bikini scenes with Charisma´s huge 34Ds.

One of these days I´ll have to get the first season of Veronica Mars to find out how it all started since I came in at the tailend of that season - as usual. Besides Veronica Mars Charisma Carpenter was also in episode 11 of season 5 of Burn Notice where she showed she still delivers the goods.

In Germany only the first three seasons of Burn Notice have come out on DVD and right now I´m halfway through season 2. I´m not sure if I should wait any longer to see if they will do the rest someday or just get them through imports. Now that I´m invested I want to know how it plays out and there is even a spin off with Bruce Campbell´s character Sam. In any case Charisma´s funbags alone are worth the price of admission . Daimn !

Woody Harrelson turned 56 and his greatest cineastic achievement was to rub his raging Woody ( sorry, I couldn´t resist the pun ) all over Bruce Willis´ then wife Demi Moore in An Indecent Proposal. Come on, with a title like that you knew there would be some sheninagans involved.

What´s more in White Men Can´t Jump Woody also got to work with the ultimate MILF Rosie Perez whose breasts get bigger and bigger each year.

But I´m not the only one who is fascinated by Rosie´s rapidly rising rotund rack as they were even immortalized in a song by Kanye West much to the chagrin of Rosie : " I'm a woman of a certain age, if you're gonna mention me in a song, have a little respect. He mentions my breasts. When you walk down the street and you have 15 - year - old boys ... they're like, ' Yo, Rosie, D's D's, Rosie Perez,' it's no good." I´m not sure what being a woman of a " certain age " has to do with it, because strangers singing about the size of your breasts would have you uncomfortable at any age.

Someone who surely has some thoughts along that line is Craig Ferguson who makes her come again and again ... as a guest on his show I mean. Originally I wanted to post a video from The Tonight Show where she appeared with an r - rated cleavage but I haven´t found it yet on YouTube.

July 25th

41st birthday of Penthouse Pet Of The Month in February 2000 Tera Patrick.

You may recall me mentioning her as I erroneously thought her birthday to be on the 20th of April. I then promised to do a proper post on her real birthday or at least mention her since I had all necessary things lined up. I wanted to write about casting her as Psylocke which a lot of people agree to as the 36E sexbomb is an exotic mix of Thai, English, Irish and Dutch.

Well, as usual thing didn´t work out. Maybe I can do a post next year.

July 27th

Julian McMahon who turned 45 and who started his career in Danii Minogue´s music video This Is It, then tangled with Jessica Alba as Doctor Doom but his greatest claim to fame is that he got his pawns on sexbomb Alyssa Milano ( who got two entries on this blog, the main post and the bonus round with her best episodes on Charmed ) as The Source of all Evil on Charmed.

Alyssa later got her freak on in Embrace of the Vampire where she did her best performance going full frontal.

Strangely enough another candidate from my Justice League movie casting series also had her birthday that day, none other than Maria Grazia Cucinotta who turned 49. I selected the italian sexbomb with the big 39D ( !!! ) bombs as Big Barda in the very first post of the Hollywood version .

In the original FOURTH WORLD comics by Jack Kirby - and this definitely changed in the NEW 52 - Big Barda was built like a brick shithouse with the personality of a ladytrucker, the muscles of a female bodybuilder, the measurements of a centerfold and the cupsize of a porn star. She got that from her mother Big Breeda, the fiercest female warriors on Apokolips who - nomen est omen - was therefore selected by Darkseid himself to breed the next race of warriors. I don´t know if that was because she spurned Darkseid´s advances or if he just thought she would produce the best offspring but it is implied that he used her like a blow up sex doll !

All for the next generation of Akopolips´ finest of course. Now with Big Barda the melons didn´t fall far from the tree and when she began to develop, especially in certain parts of her anatomy that had to do with procreation Darkseid decided to let her follow in her mother´s footsteps and - like mother like daughter - personally introduce Big Barda to the breeding pens to continue the family tradition. So as soon as she got wind of Darkseid´s perverted plans for her Big Barda decided to ditch Apokolips and hitched the next ride to Earth. Like I said, originally I casted Maria Grazia Cucinotta as Big Barda but keeping in mind her history I may cast her as Big Breeda. Not only to get Maria to do nude scenes that way but also because then I could cast one more hot sexbomb as Big Barda. 

August 5th

Now megabusty 38C cosplay icon Jessica Nigri who celebrates her 28th birthday surely doesn´t have to worry about such trivial things because she surly has a ridiculous high amount of daily clicks for what she does.

Supposedly Yaya is all about the boobs and less about the cosplay - at least if you read what people write online and in the comment section of her videos on YouTube - but when you look at her and Jessica Nigri´s presence on the internet ( as Jessica Nigri is Yaya Han´s biggest rival as cosplay sexbomb ) you will notice that there are less GIFs of Yaya Han than there are of Jessica Nigri. And going even further there´re at least a dozen vids of Jessica Nigri´s breast cosplay moments while I still haven´t found a single one of this kind about Yaya. I´m not entirely sure what that means.

Holy twin torpedoes, Yaya Han is one of the celebrities where looking for fake nude pictures on the internet is just an enormous waste of time since whatever you may find can never be as good as the real thing.

I mean, cosplay queen Yaya Han ´s spectacular body was literally made to star in adult movies.

Which is not some kind of racial stereotype about asian women being genetically engineered to be perfect blow up sex dolls for men through centuries of prostitution, just stating that she gave herself porn implants.

And there just has to be a way how we can get Yaya Han to wear the same outfit as Akira Lane below. Can you imagine Yaya Han´s king sized XXL breasts with the areolas of the nipples being totally visible in that mesh shirt and her naked butt only covered by a tiny string of dental floss ?

I bet sexbomb Yaya Han really knows how to work it - or twerk it !

So far I have only made three solo posts on her although I keep mentioning her on various JLA casting posts and any other involving asian sexbombs like Ava Cadell, Kiana Tom, Akira Lane, Miko Lee, Gail Kim or Minka and I swear the completely SFW BIG YAYA HAN POST is still in the pipeline.

Speaking of comments, most of them are saying that it´s about time she does if not full on porn then at least nude videos. And while I agree - although for other reasons - I don´t think these comments will bear any fruit. From what I have experienced of Jessica she never lets others dictate what she does. And right now it seems she´s totally fine with going as far as she can go without doing nudity while driving all males crazy. She clearly knows what guys do while they watch her videos and she´s getting off on not giving you what you want. So when she really goes nude it will be at a time of her choosing and it will be glorious.

Now while I also think it´s high time that she did some nude pictures my reasoning is that now is the best time for her to do it. Too many celebs never grab the chance to do nude pictures when they are in good physical condition and their banging bodies are in their prime. Then, twenty ( or thirty ) years later their biological clock starts ticking, they want to prove that they still look good and do some pictures. Well, how are we supposed to come to a qualified decision ? We don´t know how she looked in the buff when she was young and sexy. So please Jessica, more for your own sake than for others, do some nude shots while you are still looking good.

Next up we have sexbomb Tawny Kitaen who turned 55 and who is probably better known to people of my generation for things like the screwball comedy Bachelor Party, one of Tom Hanks earliest big movie roles.

Coming back to the screw part, Monique Gabrielle who later played Emanuelle, the french soft sex kitten with the high scream of pleasure factor who rides guys so hard they forget on which side the doorknob is, showed her perfect melons ensuring that the movie would be in reruns forever. I managed to find a GIF that is safe to post so if you want to see her completely naked you have to get the movie. Which is totally worth it.

Speaking about sex kittens, or should I say sex kitaens ? Tawny also secured herself a place in the Olymp of rock video chicks when she did her incredible splits on a car hood in the video to Here I Go Again a song by Whitesnake whose lead singer David Coverdale was her husband.

Tawny became the forerunner with her incredible leg splits for generations of music video girls like the one in Billy Idol´s banned Cradle Of Love.

And we´re staying on the small screen as buxom former 38E knockout Loni Anderson celebrated her 71st birthday. That´s right, I´m saying former 38E because sadly she has reduced her breathtaking busticide to a 38C. The blonde bombshell was very popular with the boys at her school because she already had an incredible 37D bust at the tender age of 14. She worked her way through school by winning beauty pageants and when she was 18 she had to become a teacher to support herself and her baby.

Best known for being married to Burt Reynolds and playing the highly - paid, sexy, intelligent, and incredibly efficient receptionist Jennifer Marlowe on WKRP in Cincinnati which turned her into a sex symbol overnight Loni was hired for the part after a decade of unemployment because the producers saw a photo of her in a stunning red swimsuit.

The show suffered through the Nielsen ratings during its four year run but had a strong and loyal following among teenagers and young adults thanks to it´s main attraction. Later on Loni played Jane Mansfield, the role she was practically born for alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and appeared in the episode Of Guilt, Models And Murders on The Incredible Hulk tv show.

She also was on Love Boat wearing the red swimsuit for the audience.

The guys in Tinseltown thought that putting her and Lynda Carter in one show was a no brainer but even back then beauty and acting talent could not substitute good writing and so Partners In Crime was short lived.

Speaking of starring in a tv series opposite wonderful Lynda Carter, John Saxon who celebrated his 82nd birthday is best known as the guy with the inexhaustable reserve of suitcases in Enter The Dragon and the father in A Nightmare On Elm Street but like Loni Anderson he also was in a comic book tv series, but in his case from DC. I´m speaking of course about the Wonder Woman tv series where he played a Nazi. But it was not in any episode, no, it was in The Feminum Mystique, a two part epic not only featuring John Saxon as a Nazi general but also The Adams Family´s own Morticia Adams Carolyn Jones as Wonder Woman´s mom and an incredibly buxom Debra Winger as Wonder Woman´s sister Drusilla / Wonder Girl.

Who was the result of an editorial snafu. There was a story in which Wonder Woman had an adventure together with two younger versions of herself, as a toddler and as a girl and one guy saw only the cover and thought Wonder Girl was Wonder Woman´s sister. And so decades of confusing origin stories and contradicting retcons began. Anyway, for more about the Wonder Woman tv series and Lynda Carter you can read my recently reposted Wonder Woman post and to know more about The Feminum Mystique check out the post on DOG STAR OMNIBUS . Or go to RETROSPACE where they have dedicated two entire posts to this saga.

August 6th

Lisa Boyle turned 53 and I have to call foul on her imdb entry that states she is best known for her roles in Bad Boys, Face / Off, Lost Highway or The Nutty Professor. I didn´t even know she was in those movies. No, if you know Lisa Boyle it´s either from her pictures in PLAYBOY and the over 25 Playboy magazine Special Editions where she was often paired with Patricia Ford, her roles in such erotic classics like Friend Of The Family, Midnight Tease, Dreammaster - The Erotic Invader and I Like To Play Games Too or her recurring role as Fawn on the cult sitcom Married With Children. She played one of Kelly´s bosom buddies - with a huge emphasis on the bosom part - and constantly outshone Christina Applegate like in this scene from the episode Spring Break - Part 1 from season 10 where she really pushed her 35Cs so tightly together in her red bikini top when she´s leaning forward that I totally forgot that Christina was in the shot. 

August 10th

sci fi cult siren Claudia Christian who turned 52. Best known for playing Commander Susan Ivanova on J Michael Strazynski´s Babylon 5 she secured herself a spot on the Top Ten Best Movie Striptease list with her raunchy performance in 1997s The Hidden

August 12th

Now on with the show we have swimsuit model Linda O´Neil who celebrated her 43rd birthday.

You may remember that I cast her as Zatanna in one of my Casting The Justice League of America Movie posts that also features 36DD bombshells Tylene Buck and hasian LeAnna Scott.

She has played small roles in sitcoms like UNHAPPILY EVER AFTER but if you really want to see her at her hottest you absolutely have to watch her IRONMAN SWIMSUIT SPECTACULAR appearances - on DVDs 4 and 5.

August 15th

World famous Russ Meyer actress Uschi Digard turned 67 and the question is, how does one discuss Uschi ? The extremely busty, tan, always smiling, and endearing on - screen personality appeared in so many films of the 60s and 70s that the litany of her screen credits is only rivaled by the number of aliases she worked under like Ushie Plushie or Linda Lolli.

I don´t want to say that Busenwunder Uschi was predestined to work in skin flicks ( you can ask any german guy which word rhymes with Uschi ) but she began to develop extremely big breasts at a very young age. In an interview Uschi recalls : " When I started to develop at 11 I had to strap myself in, because it wasn't seemly to have breasts, and we all wore uniforms. By age 15 I was already a 40DD. " After such a beginning Uschi could only end up in movies but she began, oddly enough, in mainstream, with a cameo in I Love You Alice B. Toklas ! with Peter Sellers. She would do other bits in Hollywood flicks like The Killer Elite, Fuzz and Kentucky Fried Movie in the fake Catholic High School Girls in Trouble trailer. 
After supporting parts in Cresse's The Scavengers and a handful of other productions and taking the men’s magazine scene by storm, Uschi Digard made her Meyer debut as the best thing about Cherry, Harry & Raquel !

A silent role in footage added to pad out the picture, she is one of the more memorable aspect of that lesser Meyer movie together with the lascivious Linda Ashton who plays the main character, nurse Cherry.

I need a nice night nurse like this

Maybe Yaya Han wants to apply for that role

spongebath although instead of a sponge Yaya can use her big 40D oppai

People always say I exaggerate with Yaya Han´s breastsize but according to internet sources she´s a 40D - which to tell the truth does not tell me that much. So she is a 40D but then her cupsize is 36D ? How does this work ? I know that women wear shoes two sizes too small but I would think with breast you would pick a bra that fits, right ? That´s confusing.

Anyway, the consensus seems to be 40D with Yaya Han on most internet pages. Now in centimeters that is 102 which means that keeping in mind she´s only 5 foot 1 ( 155 centimeters, about my height ) most porn stars don´t measure up. I remember there was a girl in PLAYBOY when I was in school who was the same height as Yaya Han and she only had a 95 centimeter bust but because of her height she looked like she could easily star in a Russ Meyer movie. And Yaya got 7 centimeters more of boobs !
special treatment to get back some stamina

Coming back to Uschi, from 1969, she didn't stop working and encountered just about every major producer and director of the sexploitation scene. She even worked in hardcore productions but she only appeared in soft scenes. Everyone who worked with Uschi loved her, a rarity in the sexploitation industry, and it's no surprise that she kept many of her co - workers as close friends for many years. Uschi worked with Russ behind - the - scenes more frequently than she did on - camera, acting as associate producer on Meyer's last two films, Up ! and Beneath The Valley of The Ultra - Vixens, before he worked her last nerve and she stormed out of his life for a spell ( as he forced many of his friends to do around this time ).

Before that, she had maybe her all - time best role as SuperSoul, Stuart Lancaster's Austrian mail - order bride who bangs him all over Lancaster's farm ( with loud exaggerated panting and in ludicrous positions ! ), then sets her eyes on Charles Pitts. You get to hear Uschi speak in german here ( one of the multitude of languages she speaks fluently along with italian and spanish ) and her knack for comedy is undeniable; she also plays a nude telephone operator who speaks in Dutch ! Another no - show in Jimmy McDonough's Meyer tome, Uschi has apparently disappeared. Though she was a public figure on the Internet back in the late 90s, selling autographed photos from her own website, the page promptly disappeared a few years later and none of her co - stars, directors or close friends have been able to find her! Wherever Uschi is, I hope she's living well and is happy and content, because she doubtlessly deserves it.

we skip Today´s birthdays since I did most of the important ones last year and we already have enough
