Goodbye Paula Deen, Hello Bat Sandwich

Since Food Network had to fire racist/sexist/crazy Paula Deen, I’m thinking they have a chance to go in a slightly different direction — Cooking With Super Heroes. There’s already this awesome Official DC Super Hero Cookbook with “more than fifty easy, tasty recipes for salads, sandwiches, main dishes, drinks, and dessert..”

I can’t be the only one thinking Iron Chef Superman…

New 52 Shazam Statue

This is a New 52 Shazam statue from ArtFX due for release at the end of the year. This thing is freaking hideous. It looks like Captain Marvel’s undergone a few too many plastic surgeries or something. And seriously with those boots…really?

This is, however, a pretty good reimagining of a young Liberace as a vampire.

Kotobukiya’s Deathstroke Statue

For the most part, I have absolutely no interest in and do not understand the appeal of superhero statutes. Action figures, yes; statues, no.

Occasionally, though, a company like Kotobukiya comes out with something like this amazing Deathstroke statue and the fanboy in me is all like “Daaaamn…hide my wallet.”

Deathstroke is one of the best villains/anti-heroes in the DC Universe, and this statue really does him justice.

Blue Lantern Power Battery and Ring Prop Replica

Another entry in DC Comics’ line of Lantern-related replica. Because, you know,

In fearful day, in raging night
with strong hearts full, our souls ignite
When all seems lost in the War of Light,
look to the stars–for hope burns bright!

(No, I don’t think it was a good idea for DC to unleash the powers of the rainbow in their Green Lantern storylines–surprised they didn’t do a Skittles tie-in).
