Women Wednesday: The Tigress #1

The Tigress #1 (August 1992) from Heroic Publishing is one wild comic book. She rips a fellow prisoner's eye out for calling her a pet before telling Doctor Katherine "Kitty" Kaat (lol) that she remembers being the goddess Bast in ancient Egypt. After switching bodies with the psychiatrist, her own body swivels up from old age. She walks out of the prison and arranges a meeting with her arch nemesis, Flare. The Tigress kisses the superheroine before offering her a glass of milk (drugged, of course). She plans of switching bodies with Flare, but finds out that she is possessed by the spirit of Eos, the goddess of the dawn. After a battle on the astral plane, the Tigress manages to defeat Eos and then switches bodies.

This is where it gets really weird, folks.

The Tigress slaps Flare/Eos, who is trapped in the body of Doctor Kaat, before turning her into a house cat.

I really love the artwork by Paul Abrams. There is some cheesy pin up poses of both the Tigress and Flare, which adds to the comic's charm.

Marvel Heroes Checks At Walmart Flyer

I need to check the flyers that come with my credit cards more often because I found one for Marvel Heroes checks at Walmart. The 3 1/2" by 6 1/2" flyer features Hulk, Spider-Man, Phoenix, Thing and Wolverine on personal checks. The product page also shows Spider-Woman, Hawkeye and Storm. You can also buy address labels and checkbook cover.

The back discusses the new high security Personal Check from Walmart Check Printing so I did not scan it.

Turns out that SuperHeroStuff is selling the exact same Batman Bat Signal Response black t-shirt for $21.99 but they are currently offering special discounts this month ($10 off if order is $60+ with code TAXES10 or $5 off if order is $35 with code TAXES5). Here is what the t-shirt looks like on their site:

So if you do not have a local Walmart's, you can get one delivered from SuperHeroeStuff.

DC Super Friends Display Header From Random House

I managed to snag a DC Super Friends display header (see picture below) this morning after I finished working at the store. It was being thrown out and I made sure that it landed where I could access it in the trash bin when the time came. The text reads "DC Super Friends Big Heroes! Big Adventures!" Featured are Green Lantern, Batman, Superman, Flash and Aquaman. This normally goes on top of a store display featuring children books from Random House. I could have snagged the blue cardboard display but I have no place to store it so I didn't. The DC Super Friends display header picture measures about 13 1/4" x 9 3/4" The bottom left hand corner has Random House Children's Books with underneath it. I have yet to see the children books that came with it but I'm pretty sure that they are sitting with the rest of the store's children books and coloring books. I might have to snag a couple the next time I do my shopping.
