Batman Arkham City Series 4 Deadshot action figure

Batman Arkham City Series 4 Deadshot action figure

Sometimes comic book designs don’t work well in more realistic looking mediums such as movies, television, and this style of video game. Sadly, I think this Deadshot looks utterly horrible (though not as bad as the one from CW’s Arrow). Talia and Nightwing, on the other hand, look pretty amazing.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #50 Treasury Edition

This is a great book for those who can’t rationalize $50 for the hard covers but still would like some Eastman and Laird art in over-sized glory!

Haunchyville part two!!! The Hoax Hunters Hunters (who I’ve just decided to refer to as H3 [or H3, though HH2 would probably be more accurate]; not to be confused with HHH, A.K.A. Triple H) form an alliance with the Hoax Hunters!

New Warriors Omnibus

New Warriors Omnibus


New Warriors Omnibus Volume 1 hard cover Bagley cover

Ha ha ha —

Wait, seriously? Is this an early April Fool’s joke? Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed this stuff, but it seems like putting out more volumes of the Classics-branded trade paperbacks would make a bit more sense.

Also, there’s a Skottie Young cover.
