Wonder Woman‘s newest costume catches a lot of flack (personally, I don’t know why), but there is no way you can look at this first item and doubt its impressiveness.

Settle your eyes to the right and soak her in, gentlemen and ladies.  Soak.  Her.  In.

Done soaking?  Okay, now is that a cool looking statue or what?  This porcelain dandy is based off of Jim Lee’s recent redesigned of the costume and stands 9.75 inches high.  I don’t need a lasso of truth wrapped around me to say this is a sweet statue.

Speaking of redesign, DC complements its new #1 relaunch/simplifying by releasing a line of DC Universe t-shirts that are simple and sheik.  Basically parring the design down to the hero’s symbol and a striking action for the hero themselves makes these shirts look  sharp.

There’s the Batman one (modeled after the Batman, Inc. logo).  

The Superman one.

And, the man of the hour, Green Lantern.

Two new DC Eaglemoss magazine figures drop next week, as well.

The first is the next figure in the set of Blackest Night series.  White Lantern Sinestro floats off his base by a white strand of light.  As always, he ships with magazine detailing the history of the character.  If you’ve been keeping up with the series thus far, this is easily one of the most well designed figures of the bunch.  Gander to the left and check him out.

The second DC Eaglemoss statue is another edition to the JSA:  Dr. Midnight.  Oh, and his trusty owl.  Can’t forget the owl, guys.

Make some bangers and mash, check Big Ben for the time, and make sure the tea is on because the Knight and Squire trade paperback is here.  This was a seriously under appreciated mini-series when it was on the shelves and we’re trying to give it some love here.  Written by Paul Cornell (who penned the equally amazing, but equally unrecognized Captain Britain series), this book is loaded with inside-comics references and wry British humor.  If you’re a fan of Monty Python or, you know, fun comics like Nextwave, this book is chock full of the ridiculous.  For instance, a British superhero called the Milkman and a nude female hero called Birthday Girl.  For anyone out there looking for a quick, light, original read, this is your bread and butter.  Just remember British Joker = Jarvis Poker.
