A spot to archive nerd images of interest from out of print/hard to find art books, magazines, comics and other assorted ephemera laying about as well as detours into other things found about the web. I really do try my due diligence to make sure none of these things have been seen online before with the scanned images or at least new to Tumblr with the web stuff to make it worth everyone's while and to have fresh content but, y'know, I'm not perfect and I'm not going to lose sleep over it.
Some of the pieces from the 'Hey Oscar Wilde! It's Clobberin' Time!!!' literary art collection (link above) may make it over here from time to time as well. Or not.
Much randomness ahead...
