I’m a little late posting this to the blog but if you are feeling nostalgic for Christmas already, I have your hook-up.

Marvel Had A Bigger Impact On Our Childhoods Than You Remember.

Before they were the powerhouse that they are today, Marvel was a struggling company that was trying to find some way to stay afloat. Marvel took a lot of chances trying to find a way to become finally successful again. One of those chances was to buy an animation production company and start producing animation of their own.


That was the start of Marvel Productions, a great animation company that ran from 1981 to 1993. Under the Marvel Productions banner a lot of great cartoons were created based on some of the 80s biggest icons.

In this issue of IT CAME FROM… MY SIDE OF THE LAUNDRY ROOM I open a box with one of my most prized Donald Duck collectibles -and- I take a walk down memory lane while flipping through the pages of a piece of Dungeons & Dragons comic book history.

I hope you enjoy!!
