Looking for Donations...

...Or rather paid-for donations.

See, the thing is I have some big plans coming up over the next several months and subsequently I like to have stuff ready ahead of time, sometimes just a month in advance and sometimes several months in advance.

As such, there are two items lately that have become rather difficult to locate.

The first is the infamous Doom Comic.



Yes, I do plan on making a review of it, but for the life of me I can't find it. And yes, I know there's a copy completely online, but I want the actual physical thing to hold during the review. My usual source sadly has had trouble finding it, but if one of my fans has a copy and would be willing to part with it, I'd be willing to compensate them via PayPal.

EDIT: A fan has graciously donated his morpher and I have received it. Thanks, Richard!


Otherwise, new episode will be up later today and the list of upcoming episodes will be out tomorrow night! ‎

Hmm - can't help with the comic, but I'll see if any of my friends might have that toy you're asking about.

Mela said...

If I found the issues in Jim Shooter's latest shot at writing the Legion of Super-Heroes, would you be interested? I know that the LoSH is head-explosion-causing for most people, but these are BAD on their own (creepier than Sultry Teenage Super-Foxes in their own way). Knowing that they're written by the same man who more or less shaped what the series would become just makes them that much worse.

I'll give you the ones in my collection (I'm not gonna be reading them again), once I find them all. It's about twelve issues, but the last five in particular are just awful (especially #48 & #50, which are the worst comic books I've ever read). If you're interested, please let me know, and I'll shoot you an email once I find them all.

Mela said...

A thousand pardons - I misunderstood the post as a call for donations. I'll check my shop for Doom, since they have all kinds of crazy stuff. Can't help with the toy, though.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Will a review of 'Vixen: Return of The Lion' or 'Cry or Justice' be among the reviews listed on the update?

J.A.P.

Lewis Lovhaug said...

Cry for Justice will most likely be reviewed eventually, but I'm going to at least wait for the mini to be finished.

Segasonic said...

I was so sure that the Atomic Avenue website would have at least copy of the Doom comic. But I couldn't find it there. :(

MedGeek said...

When do you need the toy?
And how am I supposed to ship it to the U.S. from Mexico?
I don't know but I have one and I'd be Happy to give it to you.
The catch is: How to get it there and sorry I'm poor I can't pay to have it sended to you.

Lewis Lovhaug said...

MedGeek - it would probably involve international shipping over the mail and I could provide a shipping address, and I'd also be willing to pay the shipping fee for it via PayPal. ^_^

I'm pretty sure it's a self parody. It's very hard to interpret the toxic waste scene any other way. What's the point of parodying a parody?

Lewis Lovhaug said...

Because fans have requested it many, MANY times and I want to get it over with. ^_~

bojak90 said...

Hmmm...not having any luck online finding an actual copy. Guess I'll just have to hit the quarter bins.

Rip n' Tear!

Johnny Fox said...

I have that morpher toy, but unfortunately I'm not willing to part with it. Sorry.
I just found it from some old boxes last week and thought I'd put it on display next to some of my other old stuff, after I've fixed the opening mechanism and located the coins. As a kid I was a huge MMPR fan and that's the only Power Rangers fancrap I had that hasn't been thrown out.

Sorry for not having much of a point.
Good luck and stay great.

Lewis Lovhaug said...

Hey, no problem. ^_^ If you want to hang onto it, I'm all for that - I'm already regretting not keeping the thing wherever I put it. XD

francisco arboleda said...

I wouldn't shed a tear in donating Brand new day spiderman to you, perhaps you would like to review them hahahaha. if you want of course.

DJW said...

Well I happen to be going to a comic con this weekend, during my back-issue-bin diving I can keep an eye out for a copy of the Doom comic,

Hot564231 said...

Would you be willing to use a knock off version the comic if one were to print off a full colour (<--I'm from the UK, deal with it) version for yourself and sent you to you?

Lewis Lovhaug said...

Nah thanks, though the offer is appreciated. ^^

Hot564231 said...

Ah well, if you can't get a hold it, will you be still reviewing it or just buy your time until you get your hands on it?

PS: 90's kid needs his own show ;)

MFlorian said...

If you want, I'd be willing to lend you mine for however long you need it.* (I'd want it back when you're done with it; even if that's years from now.)

It has all the coins, too. Even the ones that didn't come with the morpher itself - like the Dragonzord and White Tiger ones that came packaged with their respective toys.

I also have the generic Power Ranger dagger/blaster. It's always cool to flip that into both positions.

*Special Note: My dad packed a ton of my boxes into this shed, so I have to make sure he didn't throw it out when he did. It should still be there, though.

Lewis Lovhaug said...

No need; it looks like I've got a donater. ^^

About Doom Comic, I only know a place to read it on line

It's all but impossible to find a physical copy of the Doom comic these days, since, to my knowledge, it was only included in id Anthology, an out of print collection of id's games up to 1996, and was never sold separately.

TheTrueLegend said...

I wish I still had my original morpher. -_-' I had one at one time evident by the power gun/sword I still have.

Good luck obtaining one. Ebay hasn't been kind to me so far in trying to re-obtain one either.

Bazookoidben said...

If you where really desperate for a copy of the doom comic I could pull a few loose strings and try and get a facsimile made, I have accesses to large scale printers and design programs similar to the ones used in comic book publishing.
Granted it would probably look crap, no glossy cover slight image size issues, although nothing that noticeable, though it would solely depend on the image quality, but if it isn't too long a comic I could give it a shot.
I would need each page as an individual file (preferably JPG or PSD) but the more I think about this the more it seems do able. The only draw back would be making it on time and shipping to the US from the UK. I don't know what time constraints you would be needing for the comic for when you start filming. But if all else fails (though I doubt it will) shoot me a email and I would be more than happy to help Lewis!

Lewis Lovhaug said...

The thought is certainly appreciated, but nah, don't go to that much trouble over it. ^^ If I can't get it, I can't get it. From everything I've seen it's extraordinarily rare.

Bazookoidben said...

I've been doing the maths and I dont think it would be that much trouble. Would pretty much be copy paste print.
But if your searches don't yield anything, I'm still available to help!

I've heard that the id Anthology came packed with a copy of the comic. If you can't find a copy, you might try tracking down a copy of the Anthology. The problem is that most of the ones you find are missing some of the extras, including the actual comic, and even then the gorram things can be pretty expenisve.

Jer Alford said...

Hope you got comic I sent you of PP&TWOO. I have another comic from the same publisher that's even more horrible.

Jeremy A. Patterson said...

What is PP&TWOO?

Vixen: Return of the Lion was SO Awesome. Please Don't ever Review It.
