WELCOME to IMAGE COLLECTIONS' crazy little place on the web.  We may NOT have the most 'fantabulous' website on the 'net, but at least we...er,...try??  Do we intentionally make it look like this?...Only 'The Shadow' knows for sure...This new site morphs almost daily, bursting with goodness, or something close to it,...or far... Thanks for taking time out to visit us, as we hope YOU are able to do IN PERSON one day also @ our 21 YEAR OLD STORE in Streetsville, Mississauga [Near Toronto, Ontario, CANADA] ...

Image Collections fully recommends you listen to THAT VOICE in your head which insists on nudging you back towards READING COMICS AGAIN, rediscovering your LOVE OF THE COMICS MEDIUM, & not only picking up an issue or two for old times' sake, but ALSO SHARING IT WITH SOMEONE YOU LOVE....

....and 'THOR'... [or 'AVENGERS', 'SAGA', 'SANDMAN', or 'SAUCER COUNTRY' [about a woman running for US President] ] might JUST be THE PLACE TO RESTART THE DISCOVERY... :o)

You'll soon realize, this historic medium has joyfully evolved,....just as much as YOU have!....

Always Time For Being A Hero & Scoring Some Goals For The Holidays & Next Year...

   Image Collections Wishes YOU & YOURS the brightest and best for the holidays and beyond into new year!....

       Go ahead and make some HOLIDAY MEMORIES you'll be proud of for the rest of your life....

       Always remember, it's quite possible and usually probable while your choices are resulting in saved experiences for yourself, differing versions through OTHER'S eyes are being filed away which very well may outlast your own, and, when perfected, the process can result in enrichments to FAR MORE than many of us can imagine....

      In the hustle & bustle of our modern 'always-on' 24 / 7 world, with communication's importance moving forward, & technology constantly pushing the boundaries of the ALREADY spellbindiing 21st Century, managing our own personal FLASH-like 'Speedforce' as we race through life becomes an ever-evolving skill set...

Isn't it ironic the true mastery of the art of it all is not merely in effectively navigating the dashing & darting nature of our own chosen accelerated lifestyes, but instead the true success of the accomplishment is usually judged by the merits of the efficiency of how we actually hinder it by decelerating down for its gifts...

By imposing upon the burdening aspects, sedating them with a proactive 'lead-foot' approach, by slowing down, we free ourseves towards many nutritional ingredients our lives generally are enlightened by....in essence feeding us right down to our roots....

Handling, steering, & taking care of one's 'brake' time allows us to fill it with our own distinctive fuel, our spirited well spent break time, like with FAMILY, friends, or reading a great comic....

At a time of year universally known for exchanging gifts, it our hope you are continuing to excercize your creative prowess*, both in your physical gifts, and the intangible ones you leave behind as memories in the minds of those of who you interact with, as those pictures [all worth at least a thousand words each], are filed within the same drawer as those meant to inspire greatness....

Wouldn't it be wonderful to forever take pride knowing a few, or perhaps even one, image in that particular collection was referenced in creating THE EXTRAORDINARY....& all this in the year of the 'SELFIE'** 

Because, if there's anything here @ Image Collections that we know about.....it's the unique special quality of the results of using one's personal recipie mixing 'words' with 'pictures' to form the most scrumptious of feasts, sequential art storytelling!....

In fact,...we collect them....and hope you do too....  

....There's Always Time For Being A Hero & Scoring Some New Goals For The Holidays & Next Year......

    THANKS for a GREAT 2013....

     Have FUN, stay safe, and we'll see you soon..... :o)

Image Collections will be closed DEC 25th & JAN 1st......and WILL BE OPEN....DEC 26th BOXING DAY from 12 to 5pm

Also DEC 24 closing @ 5pm......DEC 31st closing @ 6pm

 *prowess: 1. skill or expertise in a particular activity or field....or 2. bravery in battle...[either fit] ....DON'T FEEL BAD about just discovering this now--everyone who knew, didn't at one point, leaving them feeling just as energized about their educational enhancement potential as you do right now,...right?!?... :o)... .also, odds are, if you felt momentarily stumped, you now know how others, sometimes older, not that we're into stereotyping, might feel about the new word.... 

 **selfie: a self-taken picture, easily taken with a digital camera or cell phone, sometimes into a mirror..fashionable today as quick & easy to email, text, or upload to the internet. ....DON'T FEEL BAD about just discovering this now.... those crazy youngsters & hip oldsters are constantly making up new words just to keep us occupied so we don't have time to figure out the acronyms & new expanded contexts of the old ones... :o) <-----let alone all of the emoticons...] 

....some might argue, especially those who've spent any amount of time on our 'website' [*snicker*], we still haven't any clue... :o)

Avro Arrow Comic Takes Flight with Daniel Wong & Spent Pencils

Daniel Wong AVRO Arrow Comic Artist at Image Collections comics toronto mississauga comicbooks Spent Pencils 33cMINI     Mississauga Comics Artist Daniel Wong, a local fan-favourite, unveiled today one of his latest projects, the 1st ISSUE of a HERITAGE MISSISSAUGA COMIC BOOK!......

     The easy to maneuver comic book, titled 'Grange Volume 1: Legend of the Arrow', is meant as a child-friendly introduction to a sometimes sadly left out page of our Canadian History, that of the Avro Arrow, itself a real-life heroic achievement in worldwide aviation....

     Joined by Cover Artist Vince Sunico & Writer/Letterer/Colourist incognito-person Madd Sketch, all of Spent Pencils fame, Daniel et al are looking forward to sharing it with you at an exclusive, yet open to the public, upcoming meet & greet which is sure to be a media-frenzied activity due to everyone [...including many dignitaries..] being in the shadow of a multi-tonned 'flightless friend'.....

     The comic will be launched at a special ceremony with the help of none other than the loooong-time Mayor of Mississauga Hazel McCallion on Saturday September 28th at 9am at the International Centre [Airport Road/Derry] during 'Doors Open Mississauga', though it'll run to 4pm for those especially fond of weekend rest.....

      Also in attendance will be the oversized guest of honour, a full-scale replica of the famous Canadian made 1950s Avro Arrow Interceptor Jet, who's story has captivated the nation for decades, and kept conspiracy theorists occupied just as long......

Avro CF-105 Arrow 3-view.

BATMAN 66 , The BAT Comes Back...West!

.BATMAN 66, The BAT Comes Back...Old School!
.
by TM Maple Leaf
.
It makes sense....In fact it makes for perfect BAT-Logic!...
  
Comic stories have grown up lately, as anyone who's sampled their merits recently can attest, with a sophistication and diversity now celebrated and devoured more worldwide than at any time in their 100+ year history...
  
Here in North America, the birthplace of the medium, the capturing of an imagination on paper has long been highlighted by the inner workings of just one of the multitudes of genres present in it, with a firm and constant fixation upon the hugely exploited, yet brilliantly arranged world of the 'hero', which was just 'super' for most....
  
For those who can appreciate a lighter-side of comic book history as a foil to today's complexities, as well as a very nearly PERFECT READ FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY....
 
 
....Not A JOKE!....
 
...The 1960s BATMAN TV Show made famous by its intense focus on not taking itself too seriously is COMING BACK as a new on-going monthly ALL-AGES title called, what else but, 'BATMAN 66'!!!...
..
.................
.
 [....which means its in limited company as one of the few comics your any-aged MOM OR DAD would probably actually WANT TO READ!!!...[...that is, IF they only knew about it...that's up to YOU] ]
.. 
<<<HINT: The selection of UNEXPECTEDLY-PERFECT / GENERATION-GAP-FILLING / WHISTFULLY-NOSTALGIC /

.......Not a Joke!...
 
..BAT-MANIA Continues In 2013's ALL-AGES 'BATMAN 66' COMIC BOOK on-going monthly Series!!  
  
Exploding on the 'mod'-scene in 1966, the 2-nights-a-week somewhat goofy action-er losely based on the format of old-time 1940/50s weekly movie-house serials showcased so-schlocky-it-fit dialog mixed with unreality at its finest, complete with whimsical gadgets aplenty!....
  
The fairly-far-from 'Dark' Knight did an overly exhaustive amount of actual 'detective work' in the program, many times involving a state-of-the-artly named 'BAT-Computer' which deduced many a puzzling situation brought forth by an almost endless parade of energetic, famous guest-stars sometimes eager to please their REAL-LIFE kids....
  
Despite grating on some faithfully-DARK Batman readers [...obviously their concerns of 'The BAT' being tainted long-term held merit...], ABC's all-new 'BATMAN' quickly spawned rabid devout followers [...think comparatively the heights of  'POG' & 'POKEMON' CRAZE-LEVEL...] who tuned-in & paved the way for a BAT-mechandise onslaught not seen again until the early 1990s....
  
Positively entrancing viewing for most youth through the ages, aliken to 'THE FLINTSTONES', the '60s SPIDER-MAN cartoon, & 'SCOOBY DOO', generations of the milk & cookies crowd have considered it must-see TV!
  
Whether it was staying up 'late' for its prime-time debuts, rushing home after school to catch it in perfectly-placed time-wise reruns, or indulging in some late-night 'after-clubbing' retro-watching, small-screen 'BATMAN' has tickled many with its handy enjoyable reason to repel both homework & housework for a bit of  'tongue-in-cheek' serial adventure....
  
Louder than life, the unabashedly distinct personalities gaudily dressed in the show personified the tripy, edgy-for-its- day satire which swept across  North America like a hurricane almost overnight,  leaving forever in its wake hundreds of cliches the comics community [...which bore the brunt of the storm...] would be stuck wading through for decades....lightning had struck!
  
'Setting turbines to speed' in a mixture of tongue-twisters, middling riddles, visually [..yes, visually! ;o] stunning sound effects, & 'puns with punch' via a course in exageration, the mixture proved a textbook example of an 'enjoyable groan' brought together by a fantastic cast of Adam West as Batman / Bruce Wayne, Burt Ward as Robin / Dick Grayson, & kept at the seat of our pants by the unfortunately unhearlded yet memorable narrator William Dozier's over-dramatic "...Will Our Caped Crusaders Survive....?!?", "Meanwhile...", & the classic sendoff "...Tune In Tomorrow, Same BAT-TIME, Same BAT-CHANNEL!",
  
'BATMAN 66', the COMIC BOOK embraces new readers in the same way the show stood strong, moving at a frenetic pace it's wildly entertaining, piercingly effective, & instantly a favourite for anyone fond of the original deadpan material...
  
'BATMAN 66' is as innovative as it is zesty, a creative sandwich of achievement, A landmine of  'easter-eggs' and shoutouts, it explodes as already one of the MOST IMPORTANT POP COMICS of the 21st century!
  
   
  
......
..
..
'BATMAN '66' is truly the PERFECT COMIC STORY for those who've never read a comic before & it matters not if they have ever experienced the 'laxative-level-laughs' seen here which were such a huge part of the 'original' material [TV-Show]. .....available now and selling fantastic...

WOLVERINE is turning up all over, sometimes in places you wouldn't expect, though it's totally forseen lately to be back on the nightstands of milions of X-'ex-readers', no longer willing to sit on the sidelines of some of the most prolific stories in MARVEL COMICS most complex anti-hero's cannon [history]....

For good reason, Logan has had to step-up lately, into roles he's more used to letting others assume, these involve planning, dedication, and a careful crafting of responsibilities....

********

You wouldn't believe it if we told you, but READING 'WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN' right now is packed with "Wha?!...No Way!!" CRAZY TWISTS & TURNS starting with a shocking falling-out with his closest-rival yet longtime friendliest-ally!...

Why does KITTY PRYDE choose to be with Logan??......& SO DOES ROGUE!!.....

Who sends WOLVIE BACK TO SCHOOL??....& what does he do with a PROBLEM child?

Our very own [...fictitious, MARVEL UNIVERSE based... :o] CANADIAN GOVERNMENT funded the controversial 'WEAPON X PROGRAM' which not only spawned our man LOGAN [actual name, JAMES HOWLETT], but also an expansive number of other characters including DEADPOOL [...who's very little like what was seen in the 1st 'WOLVERINE' movie... thankfully!...]......

....Originally carefully revealed only in painfully tiny pieces of INFO, through longtime 'UNCANNY X-MEN' [16+ years!] writer Chris Claremont, original co-creator** Len Wein [...whom also co-created NIGHTCRAWLER, STORM, COLOSSUS, and D.C.'s SWAMP THING among others...], artists Dave Cockrum, John Byrne, & Frank Miller [..yes, THAT one!..], his popularity, versatility, and sales dictated more backstory become available [ be created] on MARVEL's not-so merry mutant....

After some false-starts...No, his costume DID come off, & did NOT contain his trademark claws within it...bits became known as his appearances increased, and finaly a chance at his own series, first 4 issues in 1982, <<#1-cover-by Frank Miller >>> than a welcomed continuing staring role monthly beginning in 1988 till today, both appropriately  named 'WOLVERINE'....

  MORE wolverine BELOW....

.* *--Wolverine was also co-created by a long-time-SPIDER-MAN-artist's dad, John Romita Sr, who, as well as being a legendary SPIDER-MAN artist [1960s/70s] himself, shares his name with his son, John Romita Jr [1980s/90s/00s+]... 

[....Remarkably, when combined, one or both 'John Romita's have been ASTONISHINGLY involved in the artwork of almost 1/3 [!!!] of the 700+[seven hundred+39 'Annual'] issues of the pivotal, yet recently cancelled [...WHAT!?,....really??...really! ...], 'The Amazing Spider-man' title [ .....*sniff*...R.I.P, 1963-2012].

........................

Yellow has strangely played a part in the history of our furry yet feral friend, though not as a personality trait, as he is not one to back down from a bar-brawl or tussle....

  Not a perfect choice for camouflage or stealth, in fact the opposite, as the colour is well documented as attracting attention instead...

MAN OF STEEL MOVIE 'SUPERMAN-FEST 2013' EVENT JUNE 15th @ THE 5 DRIVE IN by IMAGE COLLECTIONS

  NEXT STOP for Image Collections........WATCH 'THE WOLVERINE', the latest X-Men movie, SATURDAY JULY 27th with us @ The 5 DRIVE-IN!!!

As is tradition whenever a SUPERHERO [Why are they 'SUPER' again??...Can't they just be 'HEROES'??.., Isn't that good enough??...Seems to be for Bond, Bourne, & Beethoven [ruff-ruff] doesn't it?

  Survivor of 3+ X-MEN MOVIES, Hugh Jackson once again dons the darker toned wardrobe of James Howlett,  better known as....THE WOLVERINE!  The second feature film to spotlight the hairiest non-blue member of the X-team, this one will mostly be focused on his time in JAPAN, which harkens back to ol' Wolvie's 1st few comics, a try-out mini-series of 4 back in 1982....

Still thought, thousands of Logan [W] tales later, to be one of THE GREATEST STORIES EVER for the character [...if not THE BEST..], long time 'X'-writer CHRIS CLAREMONT [...see him & Stan in back-2-back 'X-Men 3: The Last Stand' cameos...] worked with Legendary [Daredevil, Sin City, 300] writer/artist FRANK MILLER to craft a sly homage to JAPANESE HISTORICAL CULTURE, which by then was welcomedly seeping into North America.

.....The 5 DRIVE-IN [@ Dundas & 9th Line] PROVIDES A RELAXING BUDGET-MINDED SOURCE FOR WHEN WINDING DOWN IS NEEDED...

...............

     The 5 DRIVE IN has long been a staple of the MISSISSAUGA / OAKVILLE border, an out-of-the-ordinary movie watching experience in a 'so-old-its-fresh' outside-the-box methodology mixing a long lost increased social openness encouraging interaction & creativity [seen in many a variation of the S.U.V. spawned mini 'tent-city'] with the laid-back times of yore!

     The experience comes across as welcoming as the warm friendly staff manning the diner-styled Snackbars, doling out traditional fare alongside the unconventional [..Pickle-on-a-stick, anyone?..:o], while providing the ambiance of THE place where hot popcorn was meant to be eaten....

      Everything about the theater screams nostalgia, seemingly able to invoke memories of past dates both of family & fun, of frolicks & fortune in a revival of a time few attendees, based on their ages, should even be able to fathom, yet embrace....

      As for film viewing, putting aside screens larger than most houses, not bringing up the   overwhelming desire to confirm the vast number of 'perfect spots to watch' [..including the ability to portably pick one..] how many theaters provide adjustable seating, flexable volume, natural air conditioning, a children's playground, a vollyball court, don't mind if you chat or use your cellphone, offer at least 2 MOVIES FOR THE PRICE OF ONE, and let you walk around, while giving you a pleasent versatile atmosphere....where, if desired, one can look straight up...at nature's own atmosphere....

Having 1st appeared in 1938's 'ACTION COMICS #1' [..the ORIGINAL waaaay before the 'NEW-52' version..] back in a pre-World War 2 USA, this galently-garbed gent jumped right off the page and quickly became the unofficial spokesperson for an entire new entertaining & educational form of storytelling, one that elevated the dreams of millions, inspiring those both on & off the comic page to better themselves through truth to a previously unhearlded state of being 'SUPER'....

Likening to the steps taken by a confident DAILY PLANET reporter, the future voice of a generation headed into international conflict leaped to a popularity unseen in the hastened
