Rich? Incredibly Weird? Enjoy Picnics?

So you’re planning a nice afternoon in the country with your best girl/guy? You’ve got the basket, the blanket, the polyurethane prophylactics, and the sparkling grape juice. But do you have a lunchbox/thermos pairing that will really knock her/his socks off? Well, you do now. I scoured Ebay for the best combination of food-holding devices and came up with the following. The lunchbox may SEEM pricy, but I think you’ll agree it’s worth it to make an impression.

Beware, Surface Dwellers!

I like the details on this auction: “Uh, dunno. It’s cell animation, so it seems like it probably went to a cartoon… or something. It’s Sub-Mariner, so probably, like, a Sub-Mariner cartoon… or some shit.” While this is very likely exactly what they speculate it is (from the Sub-Mariner cartoon), this was clearly found while cleaning out a dead grand-uncle’s attic in preparation for an estate sale. That said, it’s a cool piece and potentially the sort of wall art you might want to transition into as you take down your unframed Emma Frost posters.

I could be alone here, but I really like Namor’s look in this piece. It’s somewhere between Prince of Atlantis and Beavis from “Beavis and Butthead”.

Ebay insider wisdom here: Because the origin of the piece can’t be verified, use the “Make Offer” button and see if you can’t get this for $100. At that point, even if you never go to the trouble of finding its credentials, it’s a steal.

And Then We’ll Get Him.

Man, I love me a good Gahan Wilson cartoon.

So much so, that I dropped full price on this collection of his Playboy cartoons as soon as it came out:

Don’t let the fact that it’s all cartoons for Playboy fool you; Gahan Wilson was the connecting thread between Charles Addams and The Far Side. As the cover indicates, this is all aliens, creeps, monsters, and things that make you laugh in the night. And it’s worth every penny.

But for those of you just looking for the beginner’s circuit through Wilson’s weird world, Ebay has you more than covered.

And if you prefer to sample Wilson’s prose as well, this auction makes for a nice little 2 for 1 deal.

Seriously. If you’re like me and you’re into monsters, creeps, aliens, weirdos, and sick jokes, you can’t go wrong with any of these. Heck, if you wanted you could even just buy 25 of them, cut straight from the original magazines…
