Today was Mattel and these guys know how to have fun! Not only did they introduce new Halo Wars 2 figures, WWE figures, they had new DC AND Wonder Woman merch on display. This was a fun event and we were humbled that Mattel invited us along. While the event was low key there was
Kotobukiya had a few new surprises for us including the wonderful Ms Marvel Bishiojo figure. They also had new DC statues on display and new Marvel as well. Click on through for the images
New One 12 Collective figures from Mezco announced! Our friend and collaborator Nick Ochoa from Pop Culture Network is on scene at the Mezco pre-Toy Fair press event and he was gracious enough to send us some images! Now as someone who touts the One 12 brand as the best 6 inch figure on the
DC Rebirth has been a success for the most part. It stopped a run of market dominance for Marvel, even if only for a little, and some of the comics have been critical successes. Given my limited time, I've had a hard time keeping up with all of the Rebirth titles, so when DC Comics gives me a review copy of one of the trades, I'm going to give it a shot. Initially, I was going to go with The Flash, but then Nightwing came across my desktop.
We all knew this was coming. Hot Toys has a history of milking a license dry (Iron Man). I do admit it though, I do like her and she should sell well enough. How many more Harley Quinn’s will we get? I have no idea but know more will be released. In the DC Extended
This week I’m actually presenting a review especially for the holiday season. There was a time, in 1992, when I was really engrossed in the DC Heroes Role-Playing Game. I even subscribed to Mayfair Games’ newsletter that about this time (as I recall, it could have been a later year) that among the new character
DC Comics sent us a preview of Batman #9, and while it's since made the rounds everywhere, I thought we should still share it with you, because I have some serious love for Psycho Pirate as a villain. Maybe it was his appearance in the All-Star Squadron/Infinity, Inc. crossover that cinched it for me, but his role in Crisis On Infinite Earths certainly helped and his story in Grant Morrison's Animal Man run was some of what proved what could be done with a meta-type of story.
Sideshow has finally revealed all the details for their upcoming One Sixth Scale Lobo figure and he does not disappoint. This one will be limited folks as Sideshow will only produce 1500 of the main man. He is priced at $249.99 and pre-orders go live this coming Thursday, September 15th! Read on for more.
Went through the comics I remember reading as a kid and thought of this old issue of Justice League of America that impressed me. The image of super-heroes with wacky starfish attached to their faces has stuck with me to this day, making Starro one of my favorite JLA villains. It's probably this issue's striking cover that caught my eye as a kid, .
Midnighter And Apollo is one of those titles that fans of Steve Orlando's Mignighter series have been eagerly awaiting. Fans of the characters' story in the pages of the Authority have also been clamoring for them to be reunited after events unfolded in the New 52 that saw new versions of them meet and once again become a couple, only to split in Midnighter.
Prez Volume 2 cancelled by DC Comics. That was the word from writer Mark Russell on Twitter. Prez impressed us enough to name it the best series of 2015, which wasn't an easy task, given some of the great comics that were published last year. Prez even won the National Cartoonists Society Reuben Award for best series. While sales were not strong, reviews were astounding and there was definite interest for the second half of the promised twelve issues to be published. DC Comics saw otherwise, so instead of the second half of the series, we're only getting a twelve-page "Election Special," coinciding with our actual Presidential Election.
One of the great things that have come out of cross-company crossovers is Luberjanes / Gotham Academy. Both series have found a strong fan base that are very similar, so the crossover just makes sense. It also has that fun feel of being something that a fan of both books would want to see. It also feels like a genuine attempt to expand the readership of both books, drawing in those readers of one title that are not yet reading the other. The third issue hits shops this Wednesday and BOOM! has graciously made a preview available to us.
