May 30 was Kevin Eastman's forty-ninth birthday and Superhero City is offering Storm Cannon until June 2nd. Yes, I know this is a day late but I did not notice the new addition until a few moments ago.

I found a used Canon LiDE 20 scanner with program disc at a local thrift store for five dollars this morning and snatched it up to replace my bulky UMAX Astra 2000U scanner. The best part was that it worked so my first scan was the cover of G.I. Combat #217 (Dec/Jan 1979/1980). The cover artist was Joe Kubert and the dollar comic has a total of six stories. The first story features the Haunted Tank in "The General Died Twice!" Next comes O.S.S. in "The Pigeon Spies", a one-page article about the signal corps titled "Getting The Message Through" and then the Hidden War featured in "A Fine Day For A Hanging". The Haunted Tank returns in another story title "Save The Enemy!" That is followed by "The 3000-Mile Nightmare", a sizzling sky-war special. Finally, the Haunted Tank returns for "Don't Sell Your Dog Tags Cheap".

I picked up a case of Cherry Dr Pepper this morning at the local Super Wally-World and all the cans have Loki on them. The store was completely out of the regular and diet Dr Pepper. They only had two cases each of Cherry and Diet Cherry. The blurb on the can reads "Loki, the trickster. A master of manipulation, his ambition is to be feared!"

Newsarama has a five page preview of The Spirit #14 that you can read here. The issue published by DC Comics goes on sale May 18, 2011. The cute girl with glasses on the cover is Alabaster Cream, who has several tattoos and asks the Spirit for help.

Kind of a bummer that NBC dumps Wonder Woman without even airing the pilot featuring Adrianne Palicki. Hopefully, this means that someone will give the Amazon Princess a shot at the silver screen instead.

I bought a Dr Pepper bottle with Thor on it last Friday at an out of town convenience store while on a road trip. It pretty much looks like the Dr Pepper Thor can but without the text. I am not keeping the bottle due to storage reasons but I did manage to get the label off without too much damage.

I bought a case of Diet Dr Pepper yesterday at the local Super Wally-World and it was filled with Sif cans. The blurb reads "Sif, one of the fiercest fighters in all of Asgard! Her proficiency with a sword is unmatched." I like the Sif can much better than the Thor can since she really pops out of the white background.
