For five years, we have covered the comics and toy industry, but the costs are catching up with us. Relying on advertising helps with some costs, but as we advance more and more, the amount of advertising we would need to fulfill our goal of spreading the love of collecting comics and toys becomes more than a site could handle and remain uncluttered, not to mention free of influence. That is why we are launching a Patreon for your assistance in funding our efforts.
At Wal-Marts all over the country, DC Comics makes stories available featuring their greatest heroes. The general purpose seems to be to get comics in the hands of new readers, perhaps even those that do not have easy access to a comic book shop. The general public will read this as "kids," and in some cases, they're not far off. That's why it's disturbing that the original content offered up in Superman Giant #7 is literally twelve pages of Lois Lane being repeatedly tortured and murdered.
Comic book legend George Pérez announced his retirement from comic book work yesterday. In recent years, health issues such as diabetes, heart problems and failing eyesight have scaled back his work and convention appearances. With this announcement, the career of one of the most recognizable and influential creators in comics has come to an end.
In a surprising twist, it looks like Sonuk Studios (Hell Screamerz) has apparently gotten the license to Robotech toys. Say what?? No other info was provided but it looks like Sonuk Studios will work on the designs and Harmony Gold will produce. It’s also a good possibility we will see yet another Kickstarter down the line.

I'm bound and determined to get the most out of my Marvel Unlimited membership. When looking for something to review, I looked at the 1980s Defenders that got rid of the "non-team" status of the membership. I also looked at the Marvel magazines of the early 1980s. I took a look at the full list of Marvel titles available on Marvel Unlimited and saw Legion of Monsters catch my eye. That's where I got to here. I didn't know that there was a Legion of Monsters comic. The only memory that I have of the "group" was in a single issue of Marvel Premiere. Actually, it was Marvel Premiere #28 that featured the Legion of Monsters. That sparked me to try and give some of the horror characters that the title gave tryouts. It turns out that aside from the Legion of Monsters, Satana was the only original horror-themed character that got a chance in Marvel Premiere. However, looking at the issues available, the first couple featuring Adam Warlock came to my attention, due to the cover obviously by Gil Kane.
Thanks to In-Demand Toy Facebook we have our first image of the upcoming G1 Soundwave Reissue!
