DC Comics Reveals “Detective Comics” #1000 Variant Covers

detective comics logo

This March, comic book history will be made as “Detective Comics” reaches its milestone 1000th issue. As you all know, this is the title that gave us “The Batman” way back in May of 1939 and before I get into the cover visuals, I wanted to share that classic issue with you all. Remember, Batman didn’t appear in the first issue of that comic but instead in its 27th.

Exploring New York Comic Con 2018: Day Two (Part 2)

Greetings once more my friends, it’s time to get another chapter in the continuing presentations from the 2019 New York Comic Con. The actual event ended about two days ago but those who know how we load up the massive amounts of visuals are aware that these come at the readership for about a week longer than that. Sometimes its even more depending on how busy my camera trigger finger was. As I’ve stated before, those just joing in should click HERE to see all of the posts that have gone online before this one. I am a continuity fan for sure and think that following along in order is a better experience.  I’ll start this chapter off with the select visuals of the newer stuff coming from the Good Smile Company.  We make sure to visit them at every Toy Fair and think the product is awesome.  Take a look.

Exploring Big Apple Comic Con 2018: Part 1

Considering how many of these conventions that we’ve been attending for the sake of the Geek Media, it’s pretty safe to assume that we love the creativity and colorful displays to be found at events such as New York Comic Con, WinterCon and now the Big Apple Comic Con which was happening here in NYC just this past weekend.

Though we would have preferred to attend on the Saturday portion of the weekend, the only provisions that were offered were for Sunday so that would be the day of the exploration.  PiercingMetal hasn’t been to BACC in a couple of years and it was based on my scheduling of other things at the same time but now its time to get back into the NY Groove with the coolness and the cosplay.  Let’s go.

I’m just going to jump into the fray since my MTA journey to the city was an arduous one. Sunday train travel has been a beast of late and its become a reason I tend to avoid the day in Manhattan if at all possible. Oh yeah, this is Josh Adams, son of Neal. We’ll get to him later.

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.

Exploring NY Comic Con 2017: Day One (Part 4)

Greetings Mes Amis, it’s nice to see you here once more as I present to you in living color, another chapter from my coverage of the 2017 NY Comic Con.  I’m getting down to the wire on the Day One stuff and this is Part 4 from that first day.  I should stress that the actual NYCC ended yesterday but since I only post about 50 images in each narrative for ease of your eyes, you will be seeing these posts until I get to the point of there aren’t any more.  lf you’ve missed any of the posts that preceded this one, just click on THIS LINK as it will open a battery of content for you.  With this chapter I’m covering a lot of ground and going wherever the creative spirit moves me.  Let’s begin with this awesome homage to Marvel Comics “Godzilla King Of The Monsters” with Reptar from Nickolodeon.  If this was a shirt I’d wear it.
