Spaceman Jax - Through the Mantagon Minefield
Order this real gem from the Silver Age of comics for the out-of-this-world price of $11.95.
When Spaceman Jax receives a distress call while delivering zandabite crystals, he literally drops everything to save the day. The disabled transport ship (scheduled to bring his niece Dekkin back from camp) is drifting into the Mantagon minefield at the border zone, which the Mantagons are none too happy about. Can Spaceman Jax slip through the minefield and carefully tow the ship to safety – all the while avoiding the angry Mantagons and their Ultra-turbo-zap-guns – and still make his delivery on time? Knowing Spaceman Jax – the hero with a heart of gold and the intellect of a Ploridian Lunar Beast – it’s going to take a lot of sheer, dumb luck.Relive childhood days spent on the porch reading Spaceman Jax comics with this first issue of the Ringer Comics series based on our intrepid hero Jax, as he sails through space and the Mantagon minefield to save his niece, little "Neutron Booster" Dekkin.

Taking a break from the big show
Summer is upon us, and for most of us that means a trip to San Diego for Comic-Con. However, for the first time since 2010, the Curio & Co. staff will be taking a break from the mega convention.
But don’t worry: We won’t just be lolling around the beach. Instead, we’ll be hard at work in the archives preparing some treasures for release from the vault.
So whether you’re headed to San Diego or will just be following all the Comic-Con antics online – Have a great show!
(And then come back and tell us all about it.)
