Marvel Gallery PVC Diorama: The X-Men's Savage Land Rogue
Diamond Select is always good for creating figures and statues from characters that are "in the spotlight" at the time of release. Luke Cage...Deadpool...Spider-Gwen... Even if they don't make the character exactly in the style we are seeing in the new media thrust upon us, you can be sure it will be the truest comic version Diamond's artists can muster. ...And also, every now and then, they just bust out a piece that reminds you how ridiculously fun comics can be. Here's their new Marvel Gallery PVC Diorama of Rogue in her skimpy, silly ass Savage Land swimsuit because why the hell not.

Legion Season 1 Arrives on Blu-ray & DVD March 27

FOX Legion Season One Blu-ray
For those of you who scream that all the super hero fare in theaters and on TV plays the same, LOOK NO FURTHER!! Legion is based on the X-Men story line where, basically, the hidden, mentally damaged son of Charles Xavier has to be reigned in, lest he literally tear reality apart. Insane AND mega-powered?? Awesome fruit for further story lines. I'm often very hard on what FOX does with my beloved X-Men, but in this case, they took something the comics I read as a child barely touched on and jumped into it like a cannon ball, utilizing an indie art house aesthetic, music and a number of imaginative story telling devices to roll out a killer narrative. I'll save further gushing for the review, but strongly consider popping for this series!! Here's the announcement...

Skelton Crew Studio Serves Up Itty Bitty Hellboy

Skelton Crew Studio Itty Bitty Hellboy Mini-Bust by Baltazar and Franco
Skelton Crew Studio, a comic book replica studio based in the wilds of Maine, has teamed up with Art Baltazar to cook up a new limited edition itty bitty Hellboy mini-bust. Baltazar and Franco are behind the Eisner-winning “itty bitty Hellboy” comic, based on Mike Mignola’s iconic Hellboy, only cuter. This officially licensed collectible measures 3.75-inches tall and features itty bitty Hellboy standing, with his trademark smirk, giving a thumbs up, on a big stack of buttery, syrupy pancakes. It’s beautifully sculpted by Arlen Pelletier.

Skelton Crew Studio has been collaborating with Mike Mignola since 2012 when it launched the B.P.R.D. Artifact Archive Collection, but this is its first collaboration with “Aw Yeah! Comics”’ Art Baltazar. “It really captures Art’s style and the feel of ‘itty bitty’ — I couldn’t be happier,” said studio head Israel Skelton. “You can tell everyone in every step of the process really cared and really knocked it out of the park.”
