There Is Trouble On The Isle Of Cats And Only Wonder Woman Can Help

Or at least that's the premise of Lauren Beukes's story in the latest Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman release. Equal parts fun, adorable, and heart-warming, the comic is a must read for Wonder Woman, Lauren Beaukes, and Mike Maihack fans. » 1/30/15 1:01pm Today 1:01pm

The Polling Is Completed, And Your O-Deck All Pokemon Team Is...

Well this was certainly interesting. The only two overwhelming winners were Mewtwo at QB and Machamp at TE.

Today I discovered a series of figures in a toy shop...

They're from German Toy Company Schleich, famous for high quality plastic figures (not posable) of all kinds of stuff. Lots of animals, fairy tale scenarios et al. I was a little thrilled - all of their figures a pretty neat and affordable. I was less thrilled when I noticed their Justice League consists of 3 Batmen,… » 1/29/15 12:31pm Yesterday 12:31pm
