T-Shirt Thursday: Superman #300 Cover

Superman #300 (June 1976) is one of my favorite comics that I remember originally getting when it first came out. I lost the issue somehow but I bought a copy again years later for ten times the original cost and in very used condition. "Superman 2001" is a Just Imagine story where little Kal-El lands on Earth in the present day and starts as Superman in 2001.

The cover of Superman #300 has been put on a t-shirt and a cool collector's tin:

One of my favorite series will not be coming back according to Syfy decides not to renew Alphas for 3rd season. I really liked the characters on that show.

I still thinks she needs some protection on her thighs and that cape looks pretty heavy.

Goodnight Comic Buyer's Guide

Out of all the comic news this week, nothing hit me more than Krause Cancels 'Comic Buyer's Guide' After 42 Years. I had a subscription when the CBG was still a newspaper back in the late 1980s and early 1990s. I had them saved due to all the great articles, previews, reviews and even the ads. Unfortunately, I had to get rid of them all due to my limited space about ten years ago.

Women Wednesday: Tigra In Marvel Avengers Alliance

Yesterday afternoon, I finally had enough gold to trade them in for some command points so I could recruit Tigra in Marvel Avengers Alliance. She cost me ninety command points but she is worth it mostly because she is one of my favorite characters from Marvel Comics.

I love when Tigra uses her razor claws:

Yes, I have been spending way too much time on this game in the last two months.

Out With The Old Comic Shop News

I have been on a purging spree for the past two weeks since we had to put in a new floor furnace. I tossed out a lot of catalogs, newsletters, TV Guides and scrapbook material that I will never get around to actually putting into a scrapbook. I had about fifty issues of Comic Shop News that I tossed out yesterday. They were mostly from 1991. I also tossed out several years worth of newsletters from the Science Fiction Book Club. I actually reclaimed a full dresser drawer by doing so. Yeah, I should have taken some pictures or scanned in a few of the Comic Shop News but then I would have never gotten any purging done.

Thrift Store Find: Mad Engine Team Marvel T-shirt

I really was not expecting to find anything of interest at the local thrift stores this morning since Christmas items were still on the shelves. I did find a XL blue mineral wash Team Marvel t-shirt featuring Tony Stark (Iron Man), Bruce Banner (Hulk) and Peter Parker (Spider-Man) for only three dollars. The mineral wash is a weird effect that makes the fabric look bleached out. I could not get a good picture with my crappy digital camera so I snitched one from My Tee Spot, where you can purchase one for $11.99:
