Sonic Tots Featuring Justice League Ad

The following Sonic Tots featuring Justice League ad was found in our local newspaper a few weeks ago. The ad features Superman and Wonder Woman as tots that you can color. A coupon for a $1.99 Wacky Pack Kids' Meal with the purchase of any numbered combo meal is also included. I never got around to making it to our local Sonic or seeing any other ads since I bought that day's newspaper only to read the obituary of a friend's friend. According to DC Collectors, there are a whole set of Sonic's Justice League Tots plus trading cards available.

Green Lantern Movie Review

I finally watched Green Lantern on one of the movie channels earlier this evening. Why did I not watch it in theaters or buy the DVD? To be honest, I could not afford the movie ticket nor can I afford the DVD at this time. I liked the special effects and the costume works on screen. I really did not like the Hector Hammond (he looked more like the Elephant Man towards the end) and Parallax scenes. I really loved when Hal was on Oa and interacting with the other members of the Green Lantern Corps. Ryan Reynolds did an okay job as Hal Jordan but the aliens stole the movie for me especially Sinestro. Overall, I give Green Lantern a B+.

Comic Review: Double Jumpers #1

Double Jumpers #1 (May 2012) is the first issue of a four part mini series from Action Lab Entertainment. Dave Dwonch did the story, script and letters while the art and colors where done by Bill Blankenship. The story is a twist on gamers getting stuck in their favorite fantasy video game. In this case, the group consists of the designers and programmers. There is drama with relationships such as Danielle Miyamoto being the daughter of the original game along with humor. The colorful art is crisp and the text is easy to read. The characters are unique with their own quirks. Be warned that there are some naughty words and adult situations. I enjoyed the first issue of Double Jumpers enough to want to the read the rest of the mini series. The art and story are enough for me to rate this issue an A+ so I highly recommend picking a copy up.

Women Wednesday: Earth 2 Supergirl

Kevin Maguire designed the Earth 2 Supergirl costume. I think the knee shields on her boots need to be yellow to match her wrist shields and belt buckle but otherwise I like it.

Shazam's Costume Revealed

DC Universe's New York Post Reveals the First Look of Shazam posted this picture of the superhero formerly known as Captain Marvel:
Shazam new 2012 costume
I think I threw up a little in my mouth. Why is Captain Marvel...er, Shazam wearing a white with gold trim hooded cape? Does he really need to hide his face like that? I am hoping that he does not wear the hood all of the time. I kind of like the metallic wristbands, belt and boots.

Night Force Returns

I am a big fan of the original Night Force so seeing that a new series is coming out from DC Comics in 2012 is really exciting news. Baron Winters is back with a new look as he puts together a new group. Marv Wolfman is back as writer and Tom Mandrake is the artist. You can read a five page review here.

Thrift Store Find: Fiction Illustrated Volume Two

I found a copy of Fiction Illustrated Volume Two (Pyramid Publications, April 1976) this morning at a local thrift store for only fifty cents. The book is only 6 3/4" tall and most of the pages are one page panels. The front cover proclaims that Starfawn by Byron Preiss (writer) and Stephen Fabian (artist) is a "full color adventure in the Star Trek tradition!" The back cover text states "A full-color odyssey into time and space with the crew of the starship Destiny and the fantastic woman known as Starfawn. Volume Two of America's first adult graphic novel revue!"

Bryon Preiss, of course, was responsible for the Weird Heroes paperback series. Stephen Fabian is also known for his "artwork for TSR's Dungeons & Dragons game from 1986 to 1995, particularly on the Ravenloft line."

As far as I know, Starfawn as never appeared anywhere else other than this graphic novel.
