Nothing says Gender Equality quite like…

Wonder Woman earrings.  First off – I’ve never seen earrings that appear to be pins before. Kind of what you’d picture on the table of a high school ska band – but with a clip to put on your ear. Maybe some real new merch opportunities being underused here guys. Two really NICE options in […]

DO NOT WANT. Amalgam Comics

Maybe you’ve heard the saying, “Two wrongs do not make a right.” Well, the inverse of that happens to be true as well. Here’s an example of two rights making a wrong. Magneto. Definition of a classic Marvel villain. Complicated, sympathetic, at times even likable – but at the end of the day corrupted and […]

CONCRETE, for the literate and fashion minded

Previous link was for a very fun, light, and quick read. Now, not saying that Concrete is quantum mechanics, but it’s got a little more going on than Livewires. And hopefully that quality hasn’t been lost to the annals of time.  Paul Chadwick’s masterpiece was the new kid on the block of the mid-to-late 1980’s and […]

Bargain Alert!

From time to time, like most comic buyers, I like to check out something new. This was a surprise find, and something I’m happy to pass on.  About 5 years ago, I checked out this miniseries that was being promoted gently (as in, being pushed but in a very “we’re trying this out and seeing […]

I don’t get it.

I’ve never understood this, and I’ve been seeing it a lot lately. Sure, the old Hostess comic book ads were pretty rad, but is anyone seriously going to pay more than 25 cents for a page cut out of a comic book? Old or not, Hostess cupcakes or not, it just seems silly to me. […]

Madballs back, so just beware…

Remember Star Comics? Marvel’s kiddie comics line? Featuring such licensed notables as the Muppet Babies, The Getalong Gang, Heathcliff… And Madballs. Yes, Marvel made a kiddie comic featuring the Garbage Pail Kids of balls, to be sold side by side with the Care Bears and Top Dog. Which inevitably led to gems like this: I’m […]

Batman model kit. (Batkit? Batmod?)

Everything about this model kit is cool. It’s Batman. With bats. It’s from the classic Super Powers line from the 80s. It’s a throwback to the awesome old Aurora monster model kits of the 60s/70s. It has cool box art. It uses one of my favorite Batman logos. And I don’t even know what “Golden […]

This would be way cooler if the Hulk had actually been in a band.

I dunno, I feel like late 60’s/early 70’s Rolling Stone wasn’t quite up the Hulk’s alley. Bruce Banner was clearly a Perry Como kinda guy, and much as I’d like to say the Hulk would have been into Sabbath, ol’ Jade Jaws more than likely would have freaked out over the noise and jumped 1000 […]

Who wants to go on an Argentinian Mystery Bat-adventure?

Is it a toy? Is it a game? Maybe a puzzle? Who knows! If you ask me, it looks like it’s probably something akin to Shrinky Dinks. $29.99 seems a lot to ask for something so vaguely described, but I guess that’s part of the adventure.

Team Coco is pretty scary.

I wonder if NBC execs have been having nightmares that look like this.
