Captain Marvel No More

Captain Marvel from DC Comics will be renamed Shazam according to Newsarama's Exclusive: GEOFF JOHNS Hopes Lightning Strikes SHAZAM! I am a little saddened by the name change. Too bad that Captain Thunder was not used instead.

Mini Purple Hulk At Superhero City

Rage is a mascot that one can purchase in Superhero City when they hit level 225 (I'm currently at level 211 but I do have the money to buy him). He looks very much like the Hulk but purple with green shorts. I love his heart over crossbones tattoo on his right shoulder. He is animated a little bit but you have to go to the online game to view him in action.

Super Deformed Beast Boy And Robin Figures

I actually bought these Super Deformed Beast Boy and Robin figures for a dollar apiece at a local store a few years ago. They were produced by Bandai and are based on the characters from the Teen Titans animated series that started in 2003 and ended in 2005 on the Cartoon Network. I finally popped them free and put them in front of my printer but I have to remember to move them so the paper will not jam when it comes out. Anyway, both have arms that move up and down at the shoulders but Robin's arms also twist at the biceps. Their torsos can be pressed down and they pop up when you pressed the button on the front. Sound is activated from that same button but it can be turned off with another button on the bottom of each figure. Beast Boy says "I am a party animal!" and Robin says "This ends...now!" They also have bobble heads. Beast Boy is my favorite one because I have always liked the character and finding him at the local store was a big surprise.

Comic Review: Princeless #3

Princeless #3 (December 2011) from Action Lab Entertainment picks up where the previous issue left off with Princess Adrienne being carried upside down with her bloomers showing by her dragon, Sparky. She believes that it is time to find a blacksmith and get some armor that fits her. Instead of finding the smith, she finds his daughter, Bedelia Smith, who shows off her women warrior's collection that includes the sonya, the diana and the warrior princess. The scene and conversation that the two girls have is hilarious. Princess Adrienne convinces her to make something less revealing and more practical for her. After she gets measured, she steps out to get some gold to pay for the armor so she puts on the diana armor that only comes with a rope. Wearing the skimpy armor draws some unwanted attention. Sparky gives her some treasure and on the way back runs into two soldiers that are looking for her. Princess Adrienne manages to defeat the two armed with only a rope before running back into the smith's building, where her new specially made armor is waiting for her. I have to say that the new armor is very cool looking. Princeless #3 gets an A+ just for the introduction of Bedelia Smith and her women warrior's collection of armor.

Thrift Store Find: Marshal Bravestarr Action Figure

This marks the one thousandth post at Moongem Comics. I found an eight inch Marshal Bravestarr action figure at a local thrift store yesterday afternoon. He cost me fifty cents which was a steal even though he is missing his hat, accessories and comic book.

Women Wednesday: Wonder Woman With Guns

The standard cover for Wonder Woman #8 shipping on April 12 will feature her with guns as drawn by Cliff Chiang. The weapons are the pistols of Eros so I guess that explains the heart shapes.

T-Shirt Thursday: Aquaman Distressed

I do not have very many orange t-shirts and the one that I do have is a long sleeved one with tribal art on it (I used to have one with "This is my Halloween costume" written on it but I outgrew it). I really cannot remember the last time that I wore it so I should just get rid of it. This Aquaman distressed t-shirt would be a much better replacement and one that I would wear often.

Tarzan Discovers the Land of the Prehistoric Animals ad

Tarzan Discovers the Land of the Prehistoric Animals was an ad for Pom Poms, a candy that I have not seen around here for several years. The back of each candy package had seventeen different Aurora prehistoric animals that you can send for. The two-page centerfold ad was found in Man-Bat #1 (December 1975/January 1976).

T-Shirt Thursday: Justice League of America Lineup

I like this t-shirt for the following reasons: several members of the Justice League of America are featured instead of just one or two, the cool logo and it's gray.

The mysterious hooded woman that was popping up in the New 52 has been given the name of Pandora according to this article at Newsarama. I still think that she is the new Phantom Stranger.

Book Review: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay

I finished reading The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay: A Novel by Michael Chabon (Picador, 2000) earlier this evening. I found it a local thrift store for two dollars and had to get it. The story follows two comic creators, Josef Kavalier and Sam Clay, as they create the Escapist in 1939 and ends after the two are reunited in 1953. I will not go into much detail but the book will appeal to comic book historian buffs for legends such as Stan Lee makes appearances. Overall, I give the book a B because it does drag in some places.
