The First Kyle Rayner Green Lantern Figure That Doesn’t Suck

They’ve finally managed to produce a Kyle Rayner Green Lantern action figure that doesn’t suck.  Check it out. Admittedly, this figure is more muscle-bound than Kyle truly is.  Y’know what?  It doesn’t matter, this figure just looks awesome!  The previous Kyle figures have been very disappointing.  Click here to see a few of the previous […]

OMG, I bought a Snuggie… Have I lost my mind?!?!

I bought a DC Comics Snuggie?!?!  First off, it’s not really a “Snuggie”, it’s a “Comfy Throw”.  What does that mean?  That means it’s a body-length blanket with sleeves made of fleece material; similar in design to a bathrobe that is worn backwards.  Yeah, I know.  That’s the definition of a “Snuggie”.  This is DC […]

Golden Age Green Lantern drawing by creator Marty Nodell

Here is an original drawing of Alan Scott, the Golden Age Green Lantern, by his creator Martin Nodell.  Marty created the Green Lantern in 1940 for All-American Comics #16.  I was fortunate enough to meet Marty in 1994 at Cosmic Cat Comics & Games when he came to do a signing.  I was managing the […]

Bobby Bowden as Green Lantern Parallax

Last week I posted a picture of myself gone Parallax-style with the Blackest Night power rings.  Turns out Bobby Bowden, retiring head football coach of the Florida State Seminoles, had to go and one-up me. My thanks to Serv and the folks over at THE UNIQUE GEEK listserv for starting this topic.  In fact, the […]

Alan Moore Inspired Blackest Night and Sinestro Corps War

I didn’t realize until very recently that Alan Moore inspired much of the Sinestro Corps War and Blackest Night stories.  I had no idea!  Turns out that Moore wrote a short story entitled “Tygers” in Tales of the Green Lantern Corps Annual #2 back in 1986.  This 12-page story featured the creation of many of […]

The Irredeemable Lantern

I finally got around to visiting the comic shop this past weekend after nearly a month away.  Awaiting me were my Blackest Night Green Lantern rings!  I’m probably the millionth geek to relive this moment, but here it is anyway… my tribute to Green Lantern #49 (1994).

Justice League of America Monopoly – 1999

Today we’ll be looking at the Monopoly Justice League of America Collector’s Edition from 1999.  This was a great piece produced by USAOPOLY representing the Silver Age Justice League.  The premise of the game is identical to Monopoly, the difference being simply in what things are called.  Instead of the properties being named after places […]
