Arkham Knight - Batgirl - Playarts

One of the coolest versions of one of my favorite DC characters from one of the best Batman games of all time is now a Square-Enix action figure!?

I need this in my life.

WONDER WOMAN: The True AmazonDC

Wonder Woman - The True Amazon

WONDER WOMAN: THE TRUE AMAZON is Jill Thompson’s original graphic novel re-imagining of the early years of the Amazon Princess Diana, who would grow up to become Wonder Woman. This fully painted graphic novel is unlike any Wonder Woman tale you have ever read, told as only Eisner Award- winning writer/artist Thompson could.

Super Counter Girl

Kim And Kim (Black Mask)

Black Mask has been rising and rising with their new series’ and this one is no kimandkimexception!

“Kim & Kim are twentysomething besties out to make a name for themselves in the wild world of interdimensional cowboy law enforcement. In a massive “screw you” to their parents and the authorities, they decide to hijack some high stakes bounty – and end up in way over their heads. Kim & Kim is a day-glo action adventure that’s bursting with energy and enthusiasm. It puts queer women and trans women front and center, with a story that embraces the absurd alongside realistic pathos. It’s a mature book that focuses on the power and meaning of female friendships as engines of validation.”

 

snotgirlSNOTGIRL (Image Comics)

What’s not to love? It’s an Image comic written by Bryan Lee O’Malley who wrote and drew Scott Pilgrim!

WHO IS LOTTIE PERSON? Is she a gorgeous, fun-loving social media star with a perfect life or a gross, allergy-ridden mess? Enter a world of snot, blood, and tears in this new ongoing series from New York Times Best Seller BRYAN LEE O’MALLEY (Scott Pilgrim) and dazzling newcomer LESLIE HUNG!

 

BOUNTY (Dark Horse)bounty

From Kurtis J. Wiebe, writer of Rat Queens and Peter Panzerfaust, comes an interstellar bounty hunter series featuring the Gadflies!

The Gadflies were the most wanted criminals in the galaxy-robbing corporations to redistribute wealth to the destitute. Now, with a bounty to match their reputation, the Gadflies are forced to abandon banditry for a career as bounty hunters . . . ’cause if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em-then rob ’em blind!

 

STL009188Marvel Animated Style Deadpool Statue

It’s cute! It’s Deadpool! It’s only $64.99! Need I say more?

“Gentle Giant Ltd. is delighted in announcing the next character from their Marvel animated statues line with Deadpool! This adorable collectible is a playful take on the Merc with a Mouth and is based off cover and page designs by Skottie Young from the Marvel comics. The Animated Deadpool Statue was digitally sculpted, and then 3D printed on state of the art 3D Systems printers. The high-resolution prints were then used in the creation of prototypes needed to produce this animated collectible. Each animated statue is hand-cast, hand-painted, and hand-numbered with a limited edition certificate of authenticity. Make Mine Marvel!”

 

Friendly Neighborhood Comic Manager Jonathan

blackhammerBlack Hammer (Dark Horse)

From the mind of Jeff Lemire, Descender and Plutona, comes another new, intriguing take on superheroes with dark twist.

“Once they were heroes, but that age has long since passed. Banished from existence by a multiversal crisis, the old champions of Spiral City-Abraham Slam, Golden Gail, Colonel Weird, Madame Dragonfly, and Barbalien-now lead simple lives in a timeless farming town. Even as they try to find their way home, trouble has a unique way of finding heroes wherever they are!”

Captain Kid (Aftershock Comics)captainkid

Mark Waid brings a new type of Superhero to the world of Aftershock comics.  Why would this hero ever go back to beingold and boring?

“Chris Vargas is a middle-aged man with a hacking cough, an obsolete job, and a bombastic secret: whenever he likes, he can transform into the teenage superhero Captain Kid! In this, his first recorded adventure, he encounters Helea, a mystery woman who knows more about him than he does, and Halliday, a mad businessman with a catastrophic weapon!”

sleighderSLEIGHER, Heavey-Metal Santa Claus! (Action Lab-Danger Zone)

Of course I had to pick this one… It involves Christmas! Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love that season, and what better way to read about it than with a drunk, metal-rockin’ Santa??

“Sleigher is the most recent (and reluctant) heir of the centuries old lineage to bear the title of “Santa Claus.” He’d rather slam back bourbon than glasses of milk, and blast metal instead of carols. But when evil rears its head before he’s delivered a single present, maybe he’s found his true calling-dishing out a holiday ass whoopin!!!”

DC Watch Collection #2: Batman The Killing JokeSTL011595

Any Joker fan needs this amazing, collectible watch from Eaglemoss with art by Brian Bolland from “The Killing Joke”.  Only $34.95!
