Yes, Jon's Random Acts of Geekery is officially back today with a cool new magazine-style look. Articles include an amazing collection of Krypto items, a complete Golden Age tale from Mister Mystery #10, monster stuff featuring the Groovie Goolies, a Wheaties giveaway comic featuring Captain Marvel, a look at TV's The Land of the Giants, and an essay on the Fantastic Four. There's so much that I haven't read everything yet.
Yep, another year has passed already and it has been nine years since I started Moongem Comics. Here's a special comic cover I created with a little help from this comic book cover creator to celebrate the occasion:

The back of the envelope states that "Inside! Your exclusive sticker from Marvel Avengers Age of Ultron in theaters now" with a Harley-Davidson #1 logo with a skull that would do the Punisher proud:
The sticker itself is 4 1/2" in diameter and features symbols for Hulk, Iron Man, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye and Thor circled around the classic Harley-Davidson shield symbol in the center:
The sticker also came with a 4 1/2" x 6 1/4" card featuring a Haley-Davidson motorcycle with "Unleash your freedom" on the front:
The back of the card shows the sticker along with text that states "You're in for an epic adventure. You've got the sticker. Now put the screws to anyone who tries to keep you from the open road. See your Harley-Davidson dealer to check out the latest models or book a test ride at h-d.com/testride."
What if women donned costumes first is the basic concept behind DC Comics Bombshells. The first digital issue hit the Internet today while the print version will be released August 12. The cover is by Ant Lucia while the interior art is by Marguerite Sauvage. The issue was written by Marguerite Bennett. There are some spoilers in this post so don't read if you don't want to know.
The issue kicks off with the mysterious Batwoman saving a very familiar wealthy family from a robber in Gotham City in 1940:
By day, she is also a female baseball player for the Gotham Knights:
Her girlfriend is Gotham City Police Detective Maggie Sawyer and she seems to have a really adventurous history:
Commander Amanda Waller shows up to enlist their help to end the war:
Not a bad start to the three-part series and I can't wait until the next issue. There are a few upskirt shots along with Kate and Maggie wearing lingerie. The art does have a pinup vibe, which is good considering that this is based on the Bombshells statues that were produced.
Here's the first official look of the Suicide Squad movie from Comic Con with some interesting scenes featuring Amanda Waller, Harley Quinn, the Joker, El Diablo, Rick Flagg, Captain Boomerang and Killer Croc (yes, even Batman makes an appearance):
I actually picked up the following toys at a local thrift store on Saturday morning. All three were in the same bag for fifty cents. Not bad considering all the weeks that I haven't found anything.
Razer the renegade Red Lantern action figure is the sixth toy from McDonald's Green Lantern Animated Series Power Ups that was put in Happy Meals in 2012. His arms move 360* and his chest lights up when you push the button on his back.
This Tarzan is from McDonald's Disney 100 Years of Magic that was put in 2002 Happy Meals. The only movement is that the figurine rotates 360* on the base.
This McDonald's Megamind Minion top is from 2010 and was #7 in the series. The arms move up a little when he spins.
But you have to go here to watch it for the video is way too big for this blog. I'm not really digging Lex Luthor and Wonder Woman is shown way too briefly. It's a wonder that Batman can actually move in his battle suit.
Talk about timing for I was wondering if I was going to spotlight a t-shirt or not today when I received a special email this morning. In celebration of the San Diego Comic Con starting today, SuperHeroStuff is having get a free t-shirt sale when you spend $60+ and use the "COMICCON" coupon:
