Super Swag – Action Comics Dress

action comics dress

When the gal you’re hanging out with wears this dress you know you’re getting some action later!

Check out this awesome, vintage-looking Action Comics dress from Etsy seller SophsterToaster!  Whether you buy it for the little lady in your life or just for yourself to wear around the house (hey, I’m not judging), it’s sure to be a conversation piece.

Please note that a conversation piece means people will talk about it and not that the dress will actually start talking…although that would make it even more awesome!

 

 

Comic Book A Day – Day 60 – Batman Incorporated #0 (2012)

Batman_incorporated 0

This is what passes for casual Friday at Batman Incorporated!

I’ll say it again: “I really do love Grant Morrison”, but half the time I have no idea what the hell he’s talking about.

Here with Batman Incorporated #0, we get an origin story that sort of kind of isn’t an origin story.  The characters already sorta, kinda know Batman, but they don’t, but they do.

That’s how I felt reading this book.

Now don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed it.  There were some really nice moments, but then there were some head scratching moments, such as when Batman forces the latino Batman dude to work for him by punching him in the mouth with brass knuckles.

Am I missing something here?  Is that how Batman finds his Robins in the New 52?  He just beats the crap out of some 12 year old and drags them back to the cave, caveman style?

As opposed to some of the other Zero issues I’ve read, I didn’t really feel as though I was getting the absolute inside scoop to these characters, their relationships and brands are too well defined already and therefore I felt somewhat left behind on certain knowledge.

Overall, I did like the book, I love the new(ish) characters and can’t wait to keep reading more Batman Incorporated.

I’m giving Batman Incorporated #0 (2012) 4 out of 6 possible Aarons.

Bat-Mang,

Comic Book A Day – Day 59 – All-Star Western #0 (2012)

All Star Western 0 review

“Say “Hello” to my little friend!”

As with all the Zero issues DC put out last month All-Star Western gives an origin story about an important character associated with the title.  Of course for All-Star Western it”s John Hex.

Hex has had several different incarnations over the years, including his time travel back to the future run in the 80″s which I really enjoyed.

Here writers Palmiotti and Gray give brief snippets from Hex”s life starting the day he was born and ending with how he got his facial scars.

All-Star Western has horoscope for scorpio sign can achieve everything he wants. been a consistently good read and the fact that it”s tied into the Batman family of books (it takes place in 1860″s Gotham) makes it even more interesting to me.

 

The dialogue, characters and art make this series and specifically this book a definite addition to your pull list (which still sounds dirty to me).

I”m giving All-Star Western #0 (2012) 5 out of 6 possible Aarons!

Dibbling out of my cheek,

Covering your head is a job for Superman!!!

I like hats, I like Superman.  I like that I bought this Superman hat at The New York Comic Con.

 

Comic Book A Day – Day 58 – Justice League #0 (2012)

Justice League 0 Review

Perhaps we should stop at the optometrist?

I really love Shazam and Geoff Johns has been doing a masterful job of building up Billy Batson’s story in the back pages of Justice League.

Here in Justice League #0, we finally get to see Billy transform into the one and only Captain Marvel (except that now we don’t call him Captain Marvel).

This issue was quite enjoyable, especially seeing Shazam possessing the most powerful mortal body in the world and still grinning like a school boy when he smashes a chair or lifts a car.  He’s grinning like a school boy, because he is a school boy.

This is why at the heat of it, Shazam was, back in the day, even more popular than Superman.  Because while you can never be a space alien who gets super powers, you sure could be a kid who is chosen to be worthy of them.

Any one of us could beShazam and that’s what makes it cute and exciting all at the same time.

I’m giving Justice League #0 5 out of 6 possible Aarons!

Shazam!

Super Swag – Super Mom T-Shirt!

Super Mom T-shirt

Faster than a speeding Toddler, able to leap piles of stuffed animals in a single bound…

For my very first Father’s Day, my wife bought me a really awesome Super Dad T-Shirt!  When I went to The New York Comic Con and saw this Super Mom T-Shirt I knew it I had to snag it for her.  So I waited until no one was looking and stole it, but was caught and sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Or

I gave the guy $20 and he gave me the shirt and my wife really loved it.

I found it online here.

 

Comic Book A Day – Day 57 – Avengers Vs. X-Men Consequences #1 (2012)

Avengers Vs X-Men Consequences

Someone justifiably murdered the artist on this book.

and now I know why they didn’t want me to read this book.

To say that AVX:C#1 i s crap is to insult crap.  Not only is it the worst art I  may have even seen in a comic book (and that includes the time my ass drew it’s on comic book…in the dark!), but the story is super weak and doesn’t even make sense.

In one scene Wolverine is explaining to Cap why he can’t go and see Cyclops in prison, in the next scene he is there visiting him.

OK, so maybe this is Wolverine tricking Cap, but since the rest of the this book sucks so bad, I’m inclined to just believe it doesn’t make any sense at all.

If I could give a book a negative amount of Aaron’s, I would.  In fact, I created the Aaron scale, so I can update it.  So here goes: For crimes against humanity (Marvel, you seriously charged $3.99 for this?), I give you 100 million negative Aarons.

Worst. Comic. Book. Ever,
