For my birthday, got a couple more cool superhero collectibles, and so naturally, just wanted to share.
My in-laws, Faith and Ned, were most gracious to send me
a wood-based plaque reproduction of the famous, Wein/Romita/Andru "Amazing
Spider-man #151" cover. It measures roughly 13" x 19": a pretty
impressive scale in my estimation. As you can see from the grand design,
the artwork is quite eye-catching, but then of course, the red/blue
color scheme of classic Spidey has never failed to draw one in, even in a dark,
brooding, water-crashing context. The contrast here is undeniably aesthetically pleasing!
My young co-workers surprised me with the below Batman figure: a stunning
entry in the recent Kotobukiya DC Justice League line-up. The piece comes in an
appealing, predominately clear plastic container and stands about 8". The
detail on this one is arguably even grander than the fine image may convey, playing upon a
black/silvery-gray format for the chiseled armor. In my opinion, this
is one of the finest Cape Crusader representations currently
