PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m a big fan of the items that come out from Super7 and when I hit the assorted conventions I can’t seem to get to my credit card fast enough to get one or two of their latest round of awesome. It was a few weeks ago that I first announced some of their Rock and Metal coolness HERE in case you missed it. I actually saw this super cool Jerry Only figure at the recent Toy Fair but since they were still finalizing some designs with the musician I wasn’t able to photograph it 🙁 What we saw was awesome and we wanted one for sure and now along with all the rest of you I get to get on the line and shake hands with the monster man himself. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet Jerry a number of times over the years while reporting on his shows and appearances such as this and I have to tell you that he is one cool dude. Fans from the region are going to want to be a part of this signing and also get their butts over to the Psycho Las Vegas event where Misfits are one of the headlining acts. So as I close this up I wonder what you folks think about it all and if you are a toy collector in some sense what do you feel about the Super7 line of spookified trinkets? Chime in down below.

DC Comics Reveals “Action Comics” #1000 Retailer Variants

A few days ago I shared the variant covers that span the years that “Action Comics” has been on the stands. These clever editions took a decade each to showcase the adventures of Superman, the Man Of Steel. Hopefully you saw that post and if not, just click HERE for the overview. You’re going to need this when you visit your local comic book retailer next month when issue #1000 hits the stands. In addition to those variants, many of the retailers will have their own exclusive editions and I’ve secured a stockpile of images for you to peruse. I’ve named the retailer and the artist involved in the variant cover and I’ve started with the two popular comic retail giants of our own Metropolis and then the rest are in alphabetical order. Check it out.
