What Have They Done To Billy Batson?

This panel is from Justice Society of America #25 that hits the stands on April 1, 2009 and it is not an April Fool's Day joke:

Yeah, that is Dark Mary Marvel in her new costume (I like the short skirt version better myself) and her brother, Billy Batson, after he said her name. So would he be called Dark Captain Marvel or Dark Billy?

Anyway, you can read an exclusive five page preview of Justice Society of America #25 at Newsarama.

Header Added

I have added my first header to Moongem Comics since I am snowed in again with most of the city.

Blog Alert: I Am The Phantom Stranger

I Am The Phantom Stranger is dedicated to the most mysterious man in DC Comics. I have always enjoyed the character when I first read about him in issues of Justice League of America from the late Seventies and early Eighties.

Blog Alert: All In Black & White For 75 Cents

I have been meaning to write about All In Black & White For 75 Cents for a while now and I keep putting it off. Seems like I waited far too long for the last post was on October 12, 2008. There is a slight chance that future posts may start again but the past posts are still there to read. All In Black & White For 75 Cents featured reviews and scanned pages from such classic magazines as Bizarre Adventures, Famous Monsters of Filmland, Epic Illustrated, The Hulk, Vampirella and more.

Update September 4, 2012: I'm sad to report that All In Black & White For 75 Cents is no longer online.

This week's video features two battling beauties from Dynamite Entertainments Comics (I keep expecting one of them to pull a knife):

Venom Squirter

I was going to post about the Venom squirter on Saturday night after I got it but I never got around to it. This toy is the fourth toy in the Spectacular Spider-Man Happy Meal series from McDonald's. The toy has to be held under the water to fill it. My sister said it reminded her of King Kong with the huge arms.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

You didn't think I would forget Saint Patrick's Day did you? Instead of showing comic covers with various leprechauns, I found the following beer fairy:

The Courageous Caped Hero

The above image was made with The Hero Factory. I like the costume design for the most part but would have liked the ability to change the hero's name instead of having one randomly selected. I would rather he have the name Star Gem.

Women Wrestling Wednesday: She-Hulk Vs. Power Girl

Since St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, I thought that this week's edition of Women Wrestling Wednesday should feature Jennifer "She-Hulk" Walters battling Kora Zor-L aka Power Girl (big thanks to gohwave for making the video).

Now that Mrs. Carson has your attention, you can see more of her in the five page preview of Batman Confidential #27 (oh, yeah, Batman and King Tut are in there too).

No Watchmen Review Here

The local theater is holding Taken over for another week while also playing He's Just Not Into You. I really doubt that Watchmen will make it here because they do not even have movie poster for it. So I will probably not watch the movie until it comes out on DVD.

Coming This Spring: Watchmen Cartoon

You know that Watchmen will be a blockbuster as it hits the theaters this Friday so the networks are now fighting over the rights to bring it to Saturday morning later this spring:

Green Lantern: First Flight Official Website

Green Lantern: First Flight is an animated movie that is coming out on DVD this summer. There is a cool video that shows a little bit of the cast and the early sketches. This animated movie will feature Hal Jordan as Green Lantern so it should be a big hit.

Women Wrestling Wednesday: Wonder Woman Vs. Cheetah And Giganta

To tie in with the release of the Wonder Woman animated movie on DVD, which I do not have as yet, I am posting the Amazon Princess battling two female foes as made by Pepeloco999 using pcsx2 0.9.4 and Smackdown vs Raw 2008.

Blog Alert: Robin's New Costumes 1974

Kerry Callen posted Reader's Robin Costumes containing scans from Batman #259 (1974) on his blog. Some are pretty cool while others are just weird. Be sure to check out the rest of Kerry Callen's Blog for some some really cool posts after you are done chuckling at the Robin costumes.

Found: Hot Wheels '09 #7 '66 Batmobile

I was suprised that I found this Hot Wheels '09 #7 '66 Batmobile this morning at the local Wal-Mart Super Center. I love the gold rims but even better is that the front of the card has an image of the Batmobile while the back has some basic info.
