Women Wednesday: Hit It Rich Bettie Page

Since this is the last Women Wednesday post of 2014, I thought I would share some screenshots of the new Hit It Rich Bettie Page slot game that I have been playing for the past few days on Facebook. It's open to play for a limited time (otherwise you have to be a vip at level 125 to play and I'm currently at 65). The minimum bet is $1,200 (I can go up to $6,000 due to my level) but I have been losing more than I have been winning.

This is the very first screenshot of the actual game when I first played:

Happy 92nd Birthday To Stan Lee

Since today is Stan Lee's 92nd birthday, I thought I would post a picture of him holding a copy of the 75 Years of Marvel Comics: From the Golden Age to the Silver Screen hardcover book by Roy Thomas and Josh Baker:

Christmas 2014 Haul: Monster Cereal Hot Wheels

In addition to the annual receiving of boring gray socks, multicolored boxer briefs and white t-shirts, I received two Monster Cereal Hot Wheels from 2013.

One is Boo Berry's Mig Rig:

The other one is Frute Brute's Smokin' Grille:

Here is what the backs looks like and this is actually the third wave of General Mills Hot Wheels made in 2013 but released in 2014. Shown are Frute Brute's Smokin' Grille, Cocoa Puffs' Texas Drive 'Em, Lucky Charms' Ford F-150, Boo Berry's Mig Rig, Count Chocula's '59 Chevy Delivery and Trix's Custom '62 Chevy (sorry for the blurry picture):

Merry Christmas 2014: Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual #2

Merry Christmas and as a special treat, here is a special peek at Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual #2 (February 2015):
Cover of Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual #2
Jason Todd aka Red Hood, Princess Koriand'r aka Starfire and Roy Harper as Arsenal start out as little kids:

"...Yule Be DEAD For Christmas!" is the story's title:
Pages 2 and 3 of Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual #2
A special pin-up page featuring Red Hood and the Outlaws with Batman as special guest star:
Page 16 of Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual #2
The first three chapters are the best since they take a wicked look at Christmas while the fourth and final chapter has a nice twist that explains the weirdness. I almost passed this one up since I thought it would all be doom and gloom. I was surprised at the fun that it poked at Christmas plus having Batman in a cameo was great too. Even if you are not a fan of the series, I would recommend picking up Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual #2.

Christmas Countdown 2014 Day 4: DC Super Star Holiday Special Part 2

Today's Christmas Countdown 2014 continues the look at DC Super Star Holiday Special (Spring 1980).

The House of Mystery story is actually three short stories told by the horror hosts at DC Comics. The three witch sisters (Morded, Mildred, and Cynthia) from The Witching Hour tells one followed by Cain telling another. Destiny from Secrets of Haunted House breaks in to tell a story. The Phantom Stranger and Madame Xanadu shows up after everyone starts bickering. Poor Abel never gets to tell his tale.

Finally, the Legion of Super-Heroes are featured in "Star Light, Star Bright... Farthest Star I See Tonight!":

Christmas Countdown 2014 Day 1: Jughead Double Digest #197

I'm doing a very short Christmas Countdown this year since my heart is not really into the holiday spirit since the store where I'm working at will be closing soon. Anyway, here is the cover of Jughead Double Digest #197 (January 2015):

The entire digest is not cram packed with Christmas stories like I was expecting but there were some goodies found such as this one page featuring Jughead, Midge and Moose:

Vending Machine Batman String Doll

Today is a sad day for me since the vending machines at the store that I work at are all gone. They were there yesterday when I left but they were gone when I went in this morning. I already posted about the vending machine Green Lantern string doll that I mistakenly called a puppet. I did manage to snag a Batman string doll out of that same vending machine for seventy-five cents a few weeks ago. I have been meaning to post pictures of it for a while but then my old computer died so here they are finally.

The occult number on his tag is 152875.

Sadly, there is only one store left in town that still has vending machines and that's Dillons grocery store. Looks like I need to check them out with a roll of quarters before they are gone too.

Viola Davis is rumored to have been cast as Amanda Waller in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie according to this article at Comics Alliance.

I hope it's true because Opah Winfrey in the role would just be too much.

Incredible Hulk Temporary Tattoos From 2008

I received a Canon PIXMA MG2900 printer, copier and scanner as an early Christmas present earlier today to replace my Lezmark z25 printer and Canon flatbed scanner. To test out the scanner function, I scanned the Incredible Hulk Temporary Tattoos that I purchased a few weeks ago but never got around to scanning. The contents include two sheets with each having six temporary tattoos based on the movie. That's a total of twelve fake tats instead of ten that the package states. Three are actually full poses of the green goliath was the other three are logo related. The original price was $1.49 but I got it on clearance for fifty cents. They are still sealed and I doubt that I will ever open them let alone use them.

Women Wednesday: Harley Quinn Holiday Special #1

This week's Women Wednesday is a bit later than I expected it to be since I had to purchase a new computer today. My beloved Compaq Presario died without a chance of recovery. I lost some important files but most of all I lost several favorite programs. Now I'm using an Aspire X so I went from Windows XP to 8.1. Anyhow, here is the cover to Harley Quinn Holiday Special #1 from DC Comics:

Official Suicide Squad Movie Line Up

According to this Blastr article, the official line up for the live action Suicide Squad movie has been cast with Will Smith as Deadshot, Tom Hardy as Rick Flag, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress and Jared Leto as the Joker. I'm not really sure why we need this movie when there are still so many other characters from DC Comics that I would rather see on the big screen.

Hallmark Iron Man Party Cup

This Iron Man party cup from Hallmark is the last one that I recently picked up at the retail store where I work. The interior is yellow and the background is yellow. I also noticed that marvelkids.com is printed under the Marvel logo (it's also on the Hallmark Hulk party cup that I posted yesterday but is very hard to read).
