This ski mask has to be one of the most disturbing bits of clothing I’ve seen, and it can be yours for the low low price of $16.99.  While this certainly looks creepy, criminals are going to have a field day with this kind of ski mask as it makes it even harder to identify the perp. via Amazon

If you are wondering if newly anointed President Obama is soft on crime, just take a look at this freakin’ awesome action figure of number 44 as he fights Darth Vader, slashes the criminals with his dual katanas, and woos the ladies with his panty-dropping vocals. This is a Japanese figure, and while the main site is delivering up a classic 404 error when you click on the page (no doubt due to the throngs of devotees who are trying to buy three mint condition figures at the same time), it is a sure bet this figure will sell out

Don’t you just hate it when you have all the qualifications for a job, yet it goes to someone else?  That’s what happens to Renee Tempete, who should be the new Galaxy Girl, but instead the role goes to a hottie with no powers at all.  This leads to the three issue mini-series from Image Comics Shadowline imprint by Kat Cahill and Seth Damoose. Based on skill alone, Renee Tempete should be the new Galaxy Girl. Instead, a buxom blonde with no actual powers holds the title. As events unfold, Renee struggles not only against monsters, criminals and giant robots,

The story is set in a future where identity theft leads to victims having their minds erased and replaced by those of the elderly rich seeking a second youth or by criminals and terrorists with more sinister motives. A team of special agents, known as Reapers, are formed to track down and terminate those responsible. Too bad this is all fiction, as I would love a team of comandos to track down and punish identity

In last week’s review of Robin #174, I wondered what was going to happen with the Tim/Stephanie/Robin/Spoiler relationship now that Stephanie has returned to Gotham City from her sojourn in Africa. The Robin/Spoiler special released this past week from DC Comics clears up some of those unanswered questions.

The New York Times has an article covering The Dark Knight movie, and has four new photos to boot. In a political context this would politely be called an “unintended consequence.” (Gotham as Baghdad, anyone?) Mr. Nolan doesn’t deny the overtones. “As we looked through the comics, there was this fascinating idea that Batman’s presence in Gotham actually attracts criminals to Gotham, attracts lunacy,” he said. “When you’re dealing with questionable notions like people taking the law into their own hands, you have to really ask, where does that lead? That’s what makes the character so dark, because he expresses
