UFOPOP Celebrates 2nd Birthday

By Jim Klotz

     On March 17, 2007, the website [Flying Saucers in Popular Culture] celebrated its second birthday.

The purpose of UFOPOP is to preserve and display images of UFOs and Flying Saucers presented in various aspects of our “popular culture” including comic books, magazine and book covers, advertising and products, toys and games, and more.

Beginning with a thousand comic books, the site has grown to over 5,400 images. The Merchandising Gallery, opened a year ago, now has 1,600 ads, products, and promotional items which clearly show the extent to which UFO/Flying Saucer and alien imagery have permeated our culture. Plans for the site include a Toy Gallery, which will soon be added, and this will be followed by a Miscellaneous Gallery for those things which just don’t fit elsewhere.

If you are interested in UFOs/Flying Saucers, popular culture, enjoy spacecraft artwork, or just want to stroll down memory lane, then you are invited to visit, the site that has been written about in the International UFO Reporter and Britain’s Fortean Times Magazine.

Visitors are invited to return often as new items are constantly being added. Emails are also welcome [through the link at the site].

Dear Contributor,

Your comments are greatly appreciated, and coveted; however, blatant mis-use of this site's bandwidth will not be tolerated (e.g., SPAM etc).

Additionally, healthy debate is invited; however, ad hominem and or vitriolic attacks will not be published, nor will "anonymous" criticisms. Please keep your arguments "to the issues" and present them with civility and proper decorum. -FW
