"Gal" Friday! Shelby Carter

Wow! Is this chick smoking hot or what? Her name is Shelby Carter, and I'm uncertain whether she is a model, cheerleader, or softcore porn star. I saved this image quite some time ago, can't recall the source, and really don't feel like wading through the internet today in order to ferret out the mystery of her career habits.

All that I can say is that the Catacombs is adding her name (and this blessed portrait) to the inhouse "APPROVED" list. Now ..... pardon me while I sweat!

In Memorium: Fred Kida

Fred Kida [see photo; inset] was a Japanese-American comic book artist, best known for golden age aviator-hero “Airboy” and his sometime ally Valkyrie, passed away on April 3, 2014 at the age of ninety-three. Kida worked for Marvel Comics between the 1950s and the 1970s; eventually handling the company's The Amazing Spider-Man newspaper comic strip during the early 1980s. Kida also assisted artist Dan Barry on the long-running strip Flash Gordon from 1958 to 1961, and then again from 1968 to 1971. The Catacombs extends it sincerest condolences to his family, friends and fans.
