Sure, you could use your finger, but you might get a paper cut. With this lovely purple device of destruction, you can open your mail in evil style!

Oh, my… these are the best — and most adorable — MOTU figures since the (sadly never produced) Mini Masters shown at SDCC a few years.

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe #1

I kind of dig how Ed Benes drew Teela for this cover (and I’m REALLY looking forward to the Dodson’s cover), but otherwise, I’m pretty skeptical I’ll like this after the previous mini-series. Fingers crossed…

I don’t know what to say about this (not that that’s stopped me in the past, nor will it in the future), but it looks awesome!

I enjoy Leonard Kirk’s work but never got around to reading this. Now I can do it in a much more convenient way if I so desire. Now where did that 36 hour day go to…

Wonder Woman #19

Wonder Woman #19

Honestly, I find this WTF Certified thing DC is doing  laughable, except for being annoyed by the fact that apparently they don’t think every single issue every single month should have a (oh so hip) “WTF” (I’m also okay with an OMG) moment anyways.

If for some reason we lose the New 52 universe, can Wonder Woman stay like this (sans Superman relationship), though? Azzarello and company have made this by far my favorite DC books in quite some time!

I have no clue why this is so expensive, but it looks awesome (as do most things with rose gold coloring).

Nelson Blake & Dave McCaig art!!! And I hear that Joshua Hale Fialkov guy isn’t too shabby, either (I really need to read I Vampire).

Hoax Hunters #9

I was really hoping for a hostile takeover (or at least a spinoff) by the Hoax Hunters Hunters.

Of course, maybe… they don’t survive Haunchyville?!?!?!

X-Men #1

X-Men #1


X-Men #1

I like Brian Wood’s non-superhero fare; I like Coipel’s art; and it’s a team full of ladies… so this may be the one X-Men book I read NOW (and yes, the ten plus issues Wood will have written before this are on the agenda, too).

If the response to this is similar to Adventure Time, you may as well just go ahead and order this comic right now.

If this is a little pricey for you, or you just want a display piece, check out the keychain and/or the map.

I don’t expect these to ship in any way on time, but I’m just now watching DS9, so I can wait a little longer for a super awesome A Man Called Hawk/Van Dyke’d Sisko!!! And while I realize he’s been done before, that was about four years ago.

After Darth Vader and Son sold so well, I’d like to take this opportunity to remind people that preordering can be really helpful.
