Wait, are there any sane ones?: “10 Completely Insane Super-Hero Halloween Costumes…For Your Dog”
“Exotic, Perilous and Inscrutable”: At The Hooded Utilitarian, Richard Cook looks at about 80 years worth of adventure comic covers portraying Asian people. Obviously, it ain’t pretty, but it gets gradually prettier and prettier.
As a child, the Supermobile really upset me: Blogger Doctor K fields questions in his “Ask Doctor K” feature, and in this installment he answers the question, “Has Batman or Superman ever driven a rocketship before?” When I was a little kid, and my interest in superheroes was relegated to cartoons and toys, I didn’t quite understand the need for toy companies to produce a bunch of products to sell, so I was only confused and irritated by things like a rocketship for Superman to fly in, or a Matchbox car for Spider-Man to drive in and, most gallingly, any Hulk vehicle.
This is the scariest Halloween costume ever: (shudder)
I think there’ s a Human Torch joke in here somewhere, but the whole kids and fire thing makes me feel weird about looking for it: “Marvel Flashlight Toys Recalled for Risk of Fire”
I could look at these all day: Check out these photos of cosplayers next to a seated Stan Lee at Dragon Con, before what looks like the sort of backdrop they use in school pictures . They look a little like the comic book fan equivalent of little kids getting their pictures taken sitting on Santa’ s lap at the mall.
David Brothers would like Black Panther to kill Doctor Doom: He explains why in this post on the conclusion of the Black Panther-related miniseries, Doom War. In other Brothers-on-Panther news, the blogger has some concerns about BP taking over Daredevil’s subtitle, setting and numbering in the upcoming Black Panther: Man Without Fear #513.
No write-ins?: That alone makes DC’s vote for the leader of the Legion of Super-Heroes thing lame-o. Now how am I supposed to vote for Time-Lost Red Bee or Immortal Rex The Wonder Dog? Seriously, this is actually kinda neat, and a younger, more-interested-in-the-Legion Caleb would have been all over it.
