Seven Soldiers of Victory Returns in Convergence

The Seven Soldiers of Victory aka the Law's Legionnaires returns to DC Comics in Convergence: World's Finest according to Levitz Bids Farewell to Seven Soldiers and Scribbly Jibbet in Convergene: World's Finest. Paul Levitz wrote the issue while Joe Rubenstein and Shannon Wheeler provided the artwork. The group will consist of Vigilante, Crimson Avenger, Star-Spangled Kid, Stripsey, Shining Knight, Green Arrow and Speedy (Wing appears to be missing from this version).

I find it odd that they would be appearing in the World's Finest issue instead of Leading Comics, which was the golden age comic where the various superheroes first debuted as the Seven Soldiers of Victory.

Yes, Scribbly Jibbet, who first appeared in All-American Comics #1 (1939), also returns again in the issue.

Vending Machine Ultimate Spider-Man Tattoos

I picked up a few of the Ultimate Spider-Man temporary tattoos from a vending machine at the local grocery store. Each tattoo was fifty cents and feature a character from the Marvel Kids cartoon series. There are ten different ones in the set.

First up is Peter Parker in classic Spider-Man costume ready to shoot his webs at you (there is another tattoo of him swinging from his web):

Next up is Black Spider (I actually had to look him up since I have only seen a few episodes of the series and it turns out that he is actually Harry Osborn):

Here's the Iron Fist tattoo and he's my second favorite:

I like how Nova is captured in flight with his hands energized:

I was surprised to get White Tiger for she is the only woman in the set and she is by far my favorite one:

Here is what the backs of the tattoo cards look like (notice that there are not any numbers but it was made by Vending Supply in 2014 using only FDA certified colorants):

The tattoos that I didn't get include the swinging Spider-Man, Luke Cage, Goblin, Lizard, and Doc Octopus. I'm not sure if I will pick more up or not since I'm out of quarters and I'm happy with what I got so far.

Flash Bust PEZ

I picked up a Flash bust PEZ on my road trip this Wednesday. It was the last one at Hastings and sold for $1.99. The head is the classic costume look while the body and feet are yellow:

New 52 DC Comics Trading Cards Pack

I went on a road trip yesterday and picked up a few items. I didn't get any comics but I did find the only pack of New 52 DC Comics trading cards at Hastings. The price for five cards was $4.99 and was originally released in 2012. Normally, I wouldn't have picked them up for that price but I figured it was the last one so why not.

First up is the front and back of the wrapper. I opened it up at the bottom while I waited at the clinic and I had a little trouble with it:

Next up is card #6, which is Batgirl:

Next up is card #16, which is Deadshot:

I'm not familiar with Dollmaker, who is on card #18, other than he is a bat-villain and that his father supposedly was the twisted doctor on Gotham:

Vixen is on card #58, which makes two women in this pack much to my delight:

Finally, I was surprised to find a chase card in the form of work in progress (WIP) #7, which is Aquaman. Basically, it's a lenticular card that shows the artwork from sketch to fully colored.

Would I buy more packs? Yes, providing I had the money for it since they are basically a dollar a card (more after you figure in the tax).

DC Comics Pulls Joker Variant Cover For Batgirl #41

The latest big news in the comic world is that Rafael Albuquerque asked DC Comics to pull Joker variant cover that he did for Batgirl #41 after getting death threats. I have read The Killing Joke years ago and I'm not a big fan of it. While I personally don't like the subject matter, I'm against censorship and bullying so here is the cover art:

I'm more surprised that no one has bitched about the naked Joker that Bill Sienkiewicz did for Green Arrow #41 even though his privates are covered:

You can view all the Joker variant covers here.

New Costumes For Flash and Green Arrow Too

Yesterday, I posted about how Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman and Green Lantern are getting new costumes in June. Looks like Flash and Green Arrow are receiving new looks as well in #41 of their own titles.

I'm not really digging Flash's armor boots but the rest looks cool:

Oliver's pants looks a little odd but that just may be me:

According to Newsarama's EVERY June 2015 New DCU Solicitation - Including WE ARE ROBIN, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman and Green Lantern are getting new costumes.

Superman is also getting short hair while wearing jeans and a t-shirt with the S-shield (this is actually a throwback from a few years ago):

Wonder Woman is getting more armor plus leggings and bracelet blades (I like the longer boots):

Batman will be sporting full bunny armor (yeah, I don't get it either):

Green Lantern will be a renegade with a hoodie (this look reminds me a little bit of the Spectre):

I noticed that all the changes happen in June 2015 with #41 of their titles.
