Flipper Comics

FLIPPER had been a successful family movie and then a reasonably popular TV series since 1964. Gold Key put out two issues of FLIPPER in '66...

…and then one final issue in late '67, months after the series itself had ended.

Around the World Under the Sea

Sort of a combination of SEA HUNT and VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA, this Ivan Tors production starred Lloyd Bridges from the former as well as Brian Kelly from Tors' FLIPPER and Marshall Thompson from the producer's DAKTARI. Toss in Ilya from THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. and the golden girl from GOLDFINGER and there you go.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience

In late '66, future guitar god Jimi Hendrix formed The Jimi Hendrix Experience with Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell and began the group's brief but meteoric rise to fame. They began appearing in clubs in the UK and released their first single there at the end of the year. The following summer they would open for The Monkees on tour before stunning rock fans at The Monterey Pop Festival.
