Best. Photograph. Ever. Miami Heat Edition.

That actually happened last night in Milwaukee. The moment was captured by Morry Gash of the Associated Press, and it is the Best. Photograph. Ever.

Dave Johnson + Liz Sherman = Bliss.

If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times. One of my most cherished memories in all of Vs. System history is the unveiling of Liz Sherman’s Uncontrolled Power.

We learned recently that Mike Mignola and his wife personally gave the green light to the artwork on this myth-busting cardboard masterpiece, although the original Dave Johnson painting was a bit too blue. Here’s the before and after. I still can’t believe I was a part of it. Liz never, ever, ever looked like this in the comics or the movies. Only in our beloved trading card game. Forever.

Preparing for the Cosmic Crunchies.

As we twiddle our thumbs in anticipation of the new Super Hero Squad season and its foray into the Marvel Comics’ cosmos, we would like to have a hot little party with two very big villains. Since She-Hulk is getting Chibi and the Squaddies need to know what to expect, fill your eyes with some Galactus and Thanos sketchcards.

Yum.

Sketchcard artists, in order: Andy Price, Brandon Kenney, Katie Cook, Chad Hardin, Warren Martineck, and Megan Hetrick.

One Comic To Rule Them All.

If I have told you once, I have told you a thousand times. Promethea is the best comic book of all time. Since Jeromy Cox has recently posted some sweet double page yum yums on deviantart, it is time to say it again.

Promethea is the best comic book of all time.

If the oozing eye candy of those are still not enough to convince you, please study our Mick Gray connection for proof. And check out one more heaping helping of visual bliss before bed. No matter which direction you look at it, the truth remains the same.

Promethea is the best comic book of all time.

Sketchcard Soup For You!

Those are some of the spectacular sketchcards drawn by Daniel Campos for the Marvel 70th Anniversary trading card set by Rittenhouse Archives. You can click on the image to make it bigger, but can you identify every character?

That is the one that we have the honor of owning, and she is just a tease. In less than one month we will be unveiling a whole new blog dedicated completely to Marvel Sketchcards. Can’t wait until then? Okay, here’s more soup.

Those are by Marcelo Ferreira. Again, click to enlarge then see if you know ’em all. We are the proud possessors of the Anti-Venom.

Still not enough? All righty then. Soup’s on one more time. Enjoy your Gooney Toons, and don’t spill any on your shirt.

Which one is ours? This one, obviously.

Stay tuned for more information about our new blog in the coming weeks, and put your eyes back in your head!

Squirrel Girl Comes Home.

That comic book was released into the world yesterday. It contains one of the most anticipated stories in history.

Squirrel Girl is coming home for the very first time.

As you can see, our hero has gotten her own gig. Her origin story and her unbeatable powers have never been explained. Now is the time.

Tom Fowler is the artist. This is a fresh prince moment, since Tom has never done Marvel before.

Doreen Green is the coolest character ever seen. She is an Avenger, and Tom Fowler is taking her places she has never been.  Tune in tomorrow for Squirrel Girl homecoming spoilers. These are very exciting times.
