Superman’s New Pal, Don Rickle?

   Don’t you just miss those bat-shit crazy days of yesteryear? I know I do. There was a fine balance between fun comics and “serious” comics. We’ve come a long way since those days, but perhaps we’ve gone too far. At least in the comics. There are very few examples of goofy fun books anymore. Everybody is concerned with events and continuity. I would love to see some sort of FOOM type of book again from Marvel, or DC starting up the Jimmy Olsen book again.

   This begs the question…

   At least Marvel knows how to have a little fun at its own expense in the Cinematic Universe.

Superman Bubble Bath Soaky by Avon 1978

   While we were out on Monday, March 27, celebrating our 9th anniversary, my wife and I found this guy. I took he day off, and we went out to our local antique and 2nd hand shops. I never laid eyes on one of these before, which is odd, and I saw two that day. One had no cape, and no box. I passed. Then I saw this box, and the complete contents inside! The price was $12.50 plus it was on sale. The total came to a whopping $7.50 ^_^

   Over on the site’s FaceBook page, I posted a Comic Book Cover Cavalcade of Holiday themed back issues in a photo gallery. Check it out here: Four Color Holiday Celebration. I post graphic heavy content on FaceBook to save space for blog-specific items. Anyhow, head over to the gallery, and check it out. There are a few magazine covers too, due to extra christmasy content.

   Happy holidays! 🕎☃🎁🎄🎉🖖🎅👹

Supergirl is now even More Super

Superman is a perfect addition to this 2nd season of Supergirl.

   Tonight’s season opener was a great ride and I feel like we have much to look forward to with this show. It had some low and many high moments on CBS, but we watched on. I really am excited about another light hearted show to watch during the week,  along with the Flash.

A Super Gift from my Super Wife

   Today, my wife surprised me with this awesome gift. She had purchased the graphic from a second hand store. It used to be a T-Shirt. I love how she constructed the background. It makes the 21×16 inch piece pop. It made my already good day 😍
