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.
Batman has arguably the most action figures made for his character, so for our Batman Celebration, I thought I would run down a few of my favorite Batman figures.
I first heard about Auntie Agatha’s Home For Wayward Rabbits on the Legion of Substitute Podcasters’ podcast. It was met with a little skepticism, probably because Giffen is not known for this type of work. The last time he did a comic for Image was with Trencher, and most of his recent work was firmly in
When I was a teenager, especially a young teenager, Uncanny X-Men was the most popular comic among my peers. From looking back at comics journalism, we were not unique. This was also the same year I've been covering in my run of the Legion. It turns out that 1984 is a very important year for comics. This saw DC Comics make an investment in the direct market with its Baxter series. It also saw an explosion of independent publishers, including Mirage Studios with the breakout phenomenom Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Antarctic Press, NBM Publishing, and Continuity Studios also debuted in 1984. Alan Moore took over Saga of the Swamp Thing. Marvel debuted the event series with Marvel Super Heroes: Secret Wars. Fantastic comics were being produced in 1984. Uncanny X-Men was one of them, going in new directions, especially with this issue.
As you're hunting toys in the wild (or online) you may come across a figure or accessory that you recognize but you're not sure which version it is. Reissue or Vintage? Came with the single figure or vehicle driver? This "Collector Guide" series will focus on a single item that has been reused or has multiple similar versions to help with identification of various toys. Today we're looking at the TMNT Sewer Shield.

Kim & Kim is turning into one of those series that I will show up for every time, just for the level of development of Kim D and Kim Q. The characters are fleshed out so well, that it's hard to believe it hasn't even been a dozen issues. Yeah, there are also spoilers here, because I can't talk about the second part of the book without spoiling it somewhat. For a review of a Kim & Kim comic, it seems appropriate to screw it up somehow. Like the Fighting Kims, I'll try to limit the damage.
