Colouring Book Theatre: Six Million Dollar Man

The Six Million Dollar Man: Coloring Book By Saalfield  (1975),           I’ve done Six Million Dollar Man books before by Saalfield, but I always enjoy another dip into the Bionic Craze. Colouring books are usually a mixed bag depending on what reference materials they give the artist, this may be the first time […]

Colouring Book Theatre: Battlestar Galactica

Battlestar Galactica: Adventure Activiy Book by Grosset and Dunlap I stumbled on this book over the holidays and that’s good because i didn’t know it even existed prior to that. The artwork is credited to Tony Tallarico, a busy guy in comics and coloring books in the 60s and 70s (most famously for drawing those […]

Colouring BooK Theatre: Spiderman’s Christmas

Spider-Man’s Christmas: Giant Story Colouring Book by Marvel Books I found this book at a flea market the other and seeing how it’s Christmas, I spent the money and nabbed this gigantic book from 1984. It’s done in ’84 by the Marvel Bullpen so it’s nicely done rip of the Parkes Run books from the […]

colouring book theatre: The Incredible Hulk

The Incredible Hulk: Giant Story Colouring Book by Parkes Run I recently discovered photos of this book, taken in 2011 at my pal Jeff’s store Kool Stuff Toys. Parkes Run made these giant  books in the late 70s and I remember getting at least one for Christmas. In order to use this for CBT I […]

Colouring Book Theatre: Star Trek color and activity book

The Amazing Spider-Man: “Star Trek Color and Activity book” by Merrigold Press If anybody has been reading the blog, you’ll know I pretty much adore Star Trek coloring books, mostly because a) They’re terrible and b) often hilarious (see this for more) When I bought this book it seemed familiar but I swore I’d never […]

Colouring Book Theatre: The Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man: “Spider-Man Unmasked” by Marvel Books Recently a reader commented that I have never met a colouring book I didn’t hate. He was kidding but it did strike me that even though everything I do is done out of love, it does seem like i love to crap on them. I’ll counter that […]

Colouring Book Theatre: Dune Activity Book

DUNE: Puzzles, Games, Mazes and Activities This is my third pass (you can read parts one and two here) at Dune coloring books or as I like to call them, “Comedy Gold” .  The book promises you can “relive all excitement and adventure from the movie” but as we all know, crosswords and poorly thought out games rarely […]

Colouring Book Theatre: UFO Seeing is Believing

UFO: Seeing is Believing Coloring Book By Whitman 1978 Another colouring book I found rummaging through  Planet of the Stuff a couple of weeks ago. Not to be confused with the Gerry Anderson UFO coloring book we covered a few months back. Whitman had quite the little cottage industry capitalizing on the UFO craze in the late 60s/early 70s. […]

Colouring Book Theater: Valley of the Dinosaurs

Valley of the Dinosaurs I haven’t done a CBT at all this year, so I’m glad I found this book whilst visiting the groovy retro store Planet of the Stuff two weeks back. I remember this show well as a kid, mostly because to me it seemed like an animated knock off version of my beloved […]
