A positive Rhato Rebirth Review

I think the review might be from the same guy that added the first RHATO to his worst series list and hated the Jaybird nickname. If so this is quite a turn around.

Also I can instantly think of two words more controversial than Jason Todd in the DCU. Killing Joke. Especially now.

Red Hood and the Outlaws Rebirth #1

I'm going to do this review a little differently than normal. Kind of long.

The Tim Drake Rumor

I heard about this from someone before being directed here.

DC Collectibles: More DC Icons

More figures have been shown today with some awesome character choices. Two in particular that I'm happy about.

Some news on what figures are coming up.

Just got into RWBY

It's good to at least have three volumes/seasons to go through when you start a new series. Even with the wait for the next one there's a lot to watch.

This month was a surprise with all the mini series and one shots.

Artemis Merchandise

I showed some of the Starfire products so I thought I might as well do a posting about the ones associated with Artemis. This list is much shorter.

Does Jason Todd have a death wish ?

Something that I thought about while looking over some comics. This also turned into a look at how Bruce and by extension the family play into it. How they might affect his emotional state.

Map of Wayne Manor ?

Has there ever been a map of it ? Of all the rooms and what they use them for ? The closest I found was the blueprints for the 60's tv show. I know comics don't show that stuff anymore since the last time I remember seeing anything like that was Booster Gold' s mansion in the first BG series. But you'd think sometime in the last 75 years they'd make one or have it in one of those guides.

Cute DC Legos

Daniel Carter and Rose Levin

These two were set up as supporting characters for Booster Gold' s second series but after Johns/Katz left the title they barely showed up. As a result we missed the chance to see some great plotlines and interactions.

Rip Hunters' Blackboard


I miss Michelle, Booster and Rip but it's been a long time since we saw the blackboard. In fact I think this is the last time we saw one filled out, with the last time we see it being when it was written. Sure it was vague and usually had nothing to do with what we'd see in the series but it was fun. I also love the idea that (except for this board) Rip writes these out as cryptically as he can so Booster has no idea what he's talking about.

Out there Characters You'd Like to See

I was going to do a top ten list for both my favorite and least favorite RHATO issues. But I think I've been obvious with which issues I didn't like and I'm have trouble picking my favorites since some issues are back to back in arcs. But there are some characters I'd like to see, not necessarily in RHATO as I think some of them are little out there.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Sins of The Fathers

The fourth trade of IDW's TMNT series.

SOME SPOILERS AHEAD

RHATO #1 Variant


I love this cover, the composition, the colors, pretty much everything about this makes me happy. It reminds me of a different take of this:


Jason in front with his guns out, the archer right behind him and the powerhouse in back.

SDCC coming up

I think it's July 21-24? I'm not expecting many big reveals from DC since their only in their second month for Rebirth but it would be cool to hear about a new series or mini. Fingers crossed for something fun from SDCC.

Great Custom Figures

I've been interested in how custom figures have been crafted for awhile. There's some great work with basically just putting parts from various figures together. There's also some that sculpt new parts and even those that create entire figures. One of my favorites does commissions although she doesn't do (to my knowledge) the latter. I never bought a piece but I love looking at her work. The Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel ones are my favorite. She puts so much detail into her pieces. If you go to her site be warned of nudity in the Game of Thrones section.

I've tried my hand at customs every once in awhile and decided not to use sculpty due to breakage. I might try something a little more difficult down the line though. It's hard not to look at custom work and not feel a little bit inspired.
