    BTW: I looked up those Dinosaur Attack cards the other day, and oh wow. I thought they were pretty bizarre at first but when Dino-Satan showed up- well I too started to wonder what these guys were smoking.,,

  • I’m not easily shocked by drawings, what with the lifetime seeking out Horror related things. But that Dinosaurs Attack series… whoa nelly.

    Are those really vintage or something of a parody/tribute?

  • Gamera977

    The date was listed as 1988 so I guess they were a parody/tribute off ’50s monster movies.

  • bgbear_rnh

    I see. They did not look to be contemporary with the “Mars Attacks” cards.

  • Eric Balzer

    Well, at least he doesn’t have to tell his grandkids that he shoveled *&%# in Louisiana during the Great Bug Hunt.

    This. This made my day! :-)

  • Flangepart

    E-yeah…really high ‘Garf’ factor if you’re ‘gore intolerant’ like me.

  • Rock Baker

    There was almost a Dinosaurs Attack! movie, but with dinosaur mania in full swing, the producers opted to go with Mars Attacks! and kicked off a wave of invasion films.

    As to those dinosaur cards… Yikes! How nasty and tasteless can a product get? That card set was kinda the bar for such things. Ick.

  • Eric Hinkle

    A bit OT but folks here may remember who I’m talking about: John Glenn just died. So many of us wondered about exploring space, but he actually did it.

  • Gamera977

    Yeah, sad to see him go. Besides his combat record he had some guts to be strapped to the top of an ICBM, shot into space and then decend like a firey meteor. Sure, a bunch of Russians, Al Shepard, and Gus Grissom went before him but still what he did was still dangerous as hell.

    RIP John Glenn
