Yes, I'm getting a lot of "Marvel titles I forgot to do before" here, aren't I? Well, today it's Shellhead's turn! When Tales of Suspense got split into two books, Captain America got to take over the numbering of that title, so Iron Man got his own issue #1 -- after the one-shot Iron Man and Sub-Mariner #1 (which had Subby because the Hulk got to take over numbering of Tales to Astonish)!
Here's issue 10, with Iron Man battling his arch-foe the Mandarin!
This time around, it's ads from Charlton's Blue Beetle Vol. 3, #53! And there'll be some familiar stuff here...
Last time around, I showed you a half-page version of this ad... or was it a quarter page? Either way, here's a full-page version, where you can actually read that it's "A full 6-feet tall in chilling full color on durable 80-pound stock..." so you can figure out that it is, indeed, a giant poster!
Let's get this one finished up, shall we? Issue 210 was part of a multi-issue storyline that writer Marv Wolfman intended as a crossover with Nova, but with that series being cancelled, the story ended up finishing in the FF's book. Galactus was needed because Nova's arch-foe, the Sphinx, amassed the entire knowledge of the Xandarian living computers, and the Big G was the only guy who could beat him now!
First item up this time around is this Hamilton Invaders toy by Remco! Funny, I thought I had more photos of these, but I guess this is it for this time around... well, a bunch of Hanna-Barbera stuff is coming your way after the jump!
Original Appearances: Goober and the Ghost Chasers (Hanna-Barbera/ABC, 1973-1975)
Other Appearances: Some toys, most notably a board game.
Biography: The Ghost Chasers were a group of teenagers (Ted, Tina and Gilly) who would solve spooky mysteries with their dog, Goober. Unlike the similar Mystery Inc. gang from Scooby-Doo, the Ghost Chasers would find real ghosts.

Group Affiliation: The Ghost Chasers
Miscellaneous: Four of the Partridge Family kids (Laurie, Danny, Chris and Tracy) teamed up with the Ghost Chasers on a regular basis.
Next in this issue is “Her Way to Catch Him!” and like all the others, this is unsigned and uncredited. The story opens in the offices of The Robertson Company, where Dotty Green (I'm not sure if this is a carryover character from the previous series) is upset because her boyfriend, John (who also works in the office) is being pursued by Claire Douglas, the office “man snatcher”. She commiserates with Liana Lyndall, who is glad her boyfriend, Wally Gilman doesn't work there.
Ah, here's another book and record set to which I do not have the record (or an MP3, for that matter)... I considered reactivating "Fantastic Four Stuff" to include this, but since that blog's been long retired, you get it here!
I am a former graphic designer turned medical assistant turned truck driver who's into comics, sf, tv, cartoons, monsters, oldies rock, and lots of other stuff.
