Bombshells Grayson

Here's the alternate Bombshells cover to Grayson #11 (October 2015) because it's always nice to see Dick:
Alternate Bombshells cover to Grayson #11 from DC Comics
This is the first issue of the series that I have read with Dick Grayson being a spy and I admit that it will probably me my last one. I want to see him back as Nightwing. The Bombshells cover would have been more suited for an annual or one shot special where the story actually took place in that universe.

Goodnight Wes Craven

Sad news for we lost a very creative and talented man today according to Wes Craven, ‘Scream’ and ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ Director, Dies at 76. He also directed and wrote 1982's Swamp Thing based on the character from DC Comics among so many other movies and tv shows.

Sexy Sunday: DC Comics Bombshells #6

DC Comics Bombshells #6 has to be the best issue yet for several reasons. The second page featuring the Joker's Daughter should have been the cover instead of the Wonder Woman and Mera cover that has been the cover since #4. Notice that her teeth are pearly white while they are disgustingly nasty in the story itself:
Page 2 from DC Comics Bombshells #6 featuring the Joker's Daughter
A group of German soldiers go to a nightclub in 1940 Berlin, Germany where they are greeted by the Joker's Daughter singing.
Page 5 from DC Comics Bombshells #6 featuring the Joker's Daughter
After they are seated, all the light bulbs pop and Zatanna appears on stage. She sings the song, Ich Halte Dich (I Hold You).
Page 9 from DC Comics Bombshells #6 featuring Zatanna
After taking a puff from one of the German soldier's cigarette that has an English taste, she calls him out as John Constantine.
Page 14 from DC Comics Bombshells #6 featuring Zatanna and John Constantine
Zatanna and Constantine battle with magic before she turns him into a rabbit. The Joker's Daughter starts laughing and saves them from the rest of the soldiers. However, it's clear that Zatanna has a secret that the Joker's Daughter knows and is holding over her. The latter mentions the Master several times. I have to wonder if the Joker may be the Master and/or Hitler in the Bombshells universe or at least one of the his top generals.

Marvel's Pocket Pop Keychains at Disney Movie Rewards

I finally traded 900 points at Disney Movie Rewards today for two Marvel's Pocket Pop keychains. They currently only have two from the Avengers: Age of Ultron line: the Hulk and Iron Man. I have no Pops of any kind and I thought what better time to get some.

New Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron Checks and Labels at Walmart Flyer

Last year I posted about the New Marvel Super Hero Checks and Labels at Walmart Flyer. Today's post is a kind of a sequel. I received this Walmart flyer inside this month's credit card bill. It features Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron checks and address labels that are now available from Walmart Check Printing. Movie versions of the Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man and Thor is shown group together on the left side. Checks shown include Nick Fury, the Vision, the Hulk and Black Widow. On the right side are labels featuring Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and Ultron.

You can view all the checks at Avengers: Age of Ultron Checks (other checks include Thor, Captain America, Iron Man and Ultron). You can also view all the address labels at Avengers: Age of Ultron Address Labels (other labels include Black Widow, the Vision, Nick Fury and the Hulk).

Unfortunately, the flip side of the flyer is just a generic ad for Walmart Check Printing featuring a pretty blonde.

I'm still waiting for the DC Comics's Bombshells checks.

Women Wednesday: Bombshells Raven

Here's the alternate cover to Teen Titans #11 (October 2015) featuring Bombshells Raven:
Alternate Bombshells cover to Teen Titans #11 featuring Raven
I think DC Comics need to bring back the themed annuals and have each comic title tie-in with Bombshells for I would love to see the story that goes with this cover.

Too bad the actual comic story inside this issue is chapter three of the Darkseid story. I haven't been following it and don't really care to do so.

Sexy Saturday: DC Comics Bombshells #5

This should have been the cover to DC Comics Bombshells #5 instead of the Wonder Woman and Mera cover that was also on #4:
Page 2 of DC Comics Bombshells #5
After being called a traitor by the leader of the Soviet's Night Witches, Kara Starikov puts up a fight. Not only does she fly but she also seems to be bulletproof. Unfortunately, she is forced to surrender when her sister, Kortni Duginovna, is held captive. They are brought before a group of generals that will decide what to do with her. Kara tells them that she came from the stars while her adopted mother was pregnant with Kortni. When asked about her abilities, she tells them that she has strength, speed, invulnerable skin and recently flight. Kara is asked to demonstrate her powers and she does by using her heat vision on the chandelier, which causes the room to go dark. When the room is bathed in light again, she is shown next to a mural featuring her and Kortni wearing costumes. They are then given the names Supergirl and Stargirl.

Sexy Saturday: DC Comics Bombshells #3

DC Comics Bombshells #3 is set in Moscow during WWII and spotlights two very familiar blondes. Kara Starikov is obviously a combination of Kara Zor-El aka Supergirl and Kara Starr aka Powergirl while Kortni Duginovna is Courtney Whitmore aka Stargirl (or just Star). They were raised on a farm by a mother who told them fairy tales while their father was an ex-cosmonaut and supposedly a traitor. They are both recruits for the Night Witches, women bombers of the Soviet Union. A Russian soldier hits on the two girls, Kara knocks him on his butt with a thump on his forehead. After months of training, they finally take to the air but Kortni's plane catches fire and Kara saves her. Unfortunately, all the other Night Witches including their trainer/leader witness the event and label them as traitors.

I had a hard time telling them apart so I'm not sure if they are supposed to be twins or not. It's a good issue but still not as great as the first one.
