Super Swag – Mike Mignola Batman Statue

Mike Mignola Batman Statue

I am Shoulderless Batman!

I loves me some Mike Mignola, I also loves me some DC Direct action figures/statues.  So guess what?  I loves me some Mike Mignola Black and White Batman Statue from DC Direct.

I found one of Amazon.com, you can buy it if you want, I live in Manhattan, where the hell am I going to put it?

 

Super Swag – Justice League Chess Set!

Justice League Chess Set

Checkmate, but with fewer super spies.

This is pretty darn cool.  A chess set with DC characters.  This one says it’s Superman VS Batman themed, but it looks more like Batman Vs. Everyone, which is really the way it should be right?

To be honest there are some prettier DC chess sets out there, but for the kiddies, I think this might do the trick.

Comic Book A Day – Day 50 – Batgirl #0

Batgirl #0 review

She gets shot in the end, an Oracle told me.

March of the Zero issues continues with my review of Batgirl #0!  Huzzah!  I do like Batgirl as a character but a lot of her stories fall flat.  I personally think she was really interesting as Oracle, but no matter how many other characters they tried to put in the Batgirl mantle, there’s just one and that’s Barbara Gordon.

and this is for being bald!

I did like this story, although I have to admit that I’ve dropped the normal series as I just found it uninteresting.  Writer Gail Simone does a nice job of showing us how the New 52 Barbara Gordon got her first experience as Batgirl and her first interaction with Batman.

She’s shown to be an extraordinary girl growing up, smart, dedicated, trained in martial arts since almost the beginning, and with her father being James Gordon, well it just makes sense that she takes the path she has.

Cosplay never looked so dangerous!

It’s possible I missed it and maybe it’s coming up, but I would really like to see how she went from being a paraplegic to being I’m kicking your ass Batgirl, but again, I have’t been following the series so it’s possible, I’ve just missed the story.

All in all, this is a good Batgirl story and worth the read, so I’m giving it 3 out of 6 possible Aarons.

Batboy,

Super Swag – Agent Coulson Mini Mate

Agent Coulson Mini Mate

Agent Coulson Vs A Frost Giant would probably be a very quick fight…for the Frost Giant! Boo Yah!

To me a Mini Mate sounds like a dating site where you can find little people, but what do I know?  I’m only THE SMARTEST PERSON IN THE UNIVERSE!!!

And I decree that you should most likely want to buy this Agent Coulson Mini Mate figure on Ebay.  If you don’t the Frost Giants win.

Comic Book A Day – Day 49 – Team 7 #0 (2012)

Team_7

Seriously, count them. They add up to 7!

Team 7 was a Wildstorm Comics property which told the story of the 7th (actually 8th because there was a Team 0) incarnation of elite fighters going on covert missions to save the world.  At least that’s what Wikipedia basically said, I had never heard of Team 7 before.

Team 7

So not quite the same image as above, but there are still 7 of them!

DC Comics bought all of Wildstorm some years back and incorporated them into the mainstream DC universe with the New 52 launch.  Team 7 has now become a place to showcase DC’s (mostly) non-super powered badasses including Dinah Lance from Birds Of Prey, (who I don’t think has her Black Canary powers yet), Amanda Waller from Suicide Squad, Slade Wilson (Who doesn’t have his one-eyed powers yet), Steve Trevor who’s been hanging out in Justice League for the past year and Cole Cash (which is a dumb name and I’m not going to talk about him anymore).

This origin issue works pretty well as that.  A way to show us a bit of how Team 7 came together, a little bit of background on what each character was doing right before Team 7 and a little bit about what Team 7 is all about.

Is it the best origin issue I’ve ever read?  No.  But it is pretty solid.  Solid enough to have me add it to my pull list (which really sound like the porn sites you keep in your bookmark section) for at least a couple of months.

I’m also impressed by DC’s apparent plan to make Amanda Waller a total badass and basically the DC version of Nick Fury, except she’s already black!

I recommend picking up this book, or at least waiting outside your local comic shop and robing someone who picked the book up.

Team 7 gets 3 out of 6 possible Aarons.

Team 1,

Super Swag – Agent Coulson ID Badge

Wear this and the ladies will grant you all access…I’m talking about sex.

OK, don’t tell anyone you got this tip from me, but there is a dude on Ebay selling Agent Coulson’s S.H.I.E.L.D. I.D. B.A.D.G.E.!  Dude, it’s Level 7 clearance which means you can…um…something.

I just hope that when you take over the world, you’ll give me my half.
