Can’t Afford Those DC Bombshell Statues? How About A Nice Print?

We’ve fawned over DC Collectibles’ Bombshell line a few times and while we’d love to have all the lovely women adorning our shelves, that’s not financially feasible (or sound, if you own cats). Luckily, Quantum Mechanix has the perfect solution – prints!



Exclusive: Bitten’s Laura Vandervoort, “We All Need A Strong Iconic Female Character To Look Up To”

Syfy’s latest supernatural series, Bitten, moves to a new timeslot tonight, Monday at 8/7c. The Mary Sue was fortunate enough to grab an email interview with its star, Laura Vandervoort. You may remember her as Supergirl on The CW’s Smallville or Lisa on ABC’s V remake. In Bitten, Vandervoort plays Elena, the lone female werewolf hailing from Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld novel series. We asked her about taking on the fan-favorite role, werewolf gender roles, and…the strong female character

Superheroines Jump Into Action In This Delightful Fan Art

DeviantArt user Pryce14, AKA Jamal Campbell, has some awesome art in his gallery, including a ton of great art of superheroines!  His ladies are in proportion, sexy but not objectified, and generally look pretty badass (check out that Psylocke!). Plus, bonus points because they all look like individuals instead of a carbon-copy “woman” template.

Supergirl Co-Creator Al Plastino Passes Away

Interrupted by World War II, Al Plastino wouldn’t bag the job that would put him in the comic history books until 1948, when he went to work for DC comics drawing stories in the Superman family, c0-creating both Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes in their first appearances. Plastino died yesterday at the age of 91, in the midst of a battle to regain the rights to some of his original art, so that it could be donated to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library.

The Super Best Friends Forever Get an Official Zazzle Store, I Get a New iPhone Case

There’s nothing wrong with loving a well made kids cartoon as an adult: you just might have to at some point face the fact that the show is, for better or worse, probably only going to be considered successful by networks based on how well its merchandise sells, not on ratings. It’s just something that television animation fans get used to. This is at least partially why, with all the attention and love for The Super Best Friends Forever shorts on DC Nation, that folks have been clamoring for DC to offer merchandise of the characters in these incarnations.

What I’m trying to say is: If you want there to ever be a chance for SBFF as a full series, go buy a tote or something.

DC Comics’ Supergirl Gets A Costume Redesign…With Pants

Even if you weren’t a dedicated viewer of The CW’s Smallville series, I think you’d enjoy Bryan Q. Miller’s Smallville Season 11 comic. It’s available first digitally, then in hardcopy at comic shops, but it represents a nice look at Superman and friends outside the New 52. But what brings it to our attention today is the addition of Supergirl and her brand new costume. While the artist on issue #14 is Daniel HDR and this cover is by Pete Woods, it seems frequent cover artist on the season, Cat Staggs, was the one who created the look. She tweeted, “Dear 7 year old Cat, one day you will get to design Supergirl’s costume. #shutthefrontdoor #pinchme #SmallvilleSeason11″ While the boots from Supergirl’s New 52 design remain, lost is her cape and that awkward crotch patch (thank god). And yes, there are pants. What do you think of the new look? Would you like to see it transfer over to her own series?
