Here’s a look at Hal Jordan sporting the costumes and rings of the other Lantern Corps.  The action figures were exclusive only to the San Diego Comic Con, and attendees could only buy two per day, which means they’re up on eBay now, with very high asking prices.  Right now, one complete autographed set is going for $450.

File this in the rumor file, but those attending the San Diego Comic Con next month might get a double dose of Watchmen goodness. First is the rumor attendees might be seeing some of the very first footage from the film during the Dark Knight panel. The second is Nite Owl’s ship might be on the show floor. When asked whether Nite Owl’s ship would land at Comic Con, Zack once again tripped over his words and let out that revealing smile as he discussed how expensive it would be to do so. Expensive, but so very sweet. I can

The Josh Medors Benefit Auction has grown to such huge proportions, it’s hard to keep up with the items on the auction block at the upcoming Emerald City ComiCon. The latest piece attendees can bid on is an original work from Frank Frazetta. “Having Frank Frazetta donate a sketch is a feather in the cap to an already amazing outpouring of support for Josh that has been shown by the comics community,” said ECCC Organizer Jim Demonakos. “We’ve hardly had time to take pictures and catalog the overwhelming amount of items donated!” The silent auction is active now, and you

Okay, so it is more like the Kara clone Galatea from the Justice League Unlimited, but it is probably the closest thing we’re going to get to a JLU figure based on the busty heroine. There are a lot more photos of the new JLU figures (including Captain Atom and a well done Giganta) over at Action Figure Insider. All of the photos were taken by con attendees, which reminds me; Did anyone go to the show and want to share their photos?

Otaku USA has a great article on how to review manga titles the correct way. This could really catch on, and I’m thinking to help the movement, Major Spoilers should set up our own comic book tasting marathons. Of course we’d turn it into a drinking game with the following rules: Take a drink when: Batman is a dick Superman strikes a pose to instill fear in the enemy Wolverine appears in a title someone in the room shouts “I’m not a Skrull, I swear!” there is a reference to Tom Welling or Tom Welling Prime someone complains that we
