Cartoon Network's DC Nation

In 2012 Cartoon Network (CN) will be running a new hour block called DC Nation. The two primary shows at launch for the block will be Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series (both of which are currently running on CN).

Along with these shows the hour block will be filled with shorts. These shorts appear to range from a revived Teen Titans (though in Chibi form) to Lego: Batman, from Plastic Man to a possible live action Blue Beetle and many more.

Check out the promo below.

Hitting the scene in 2013 will be the highly anticipated replacement for Batman: The Brave and The Bold, Beware the Batman.

Hopefully in coming months we will find out more about DC Nation and it's lineup, and we'll keep you posted as we do.

But in the meantime, anyone want to share their first thoughts on DC Nation?


Happy Thanksgiving

Garage Sale Score!

This past Saturday (11/19/11) I took the time to hit a few garage sales in my area and managed to stumble upon one location where I hit the jackpot.

Apparently this guy was moving and was selling his entire online business; which just so happened to be comic books, action figures, and lots of various cards.

Unfortunately though, this guy still thought he could get top dollar for some of this stuff, and wouldn't budge on some of his prices at all. The problem here is that most of the action figures were in smashed up packages, and a good number of sports cards were scattered about on the floors being stepped on; no one in their right mind would ever pay top dollar for this.

On the other hand the comic books were all in pristine condition; which means he wanted a lot of money for some of them. He did have a fifty cent bin though, so take a guess at where I scored.

I controlled my spending though and only dropped $4.50 on a single action figure and four comics.

Check them out...

Now like I said I could have dropped a lot more money, but the couple of other figures I wanted were crushed pretty bad and though only $2.50 a piece I couldn't see that on damaged goods.

He also had a binder of Marvel trading cards, but he wanted $20 for it, and only really wanted 5 or 6 of the cards and again just couldn't see myself spending the money.

But I'm still happy with what I got, and he had tons of stuff so there is a pretty good chance that he'll be back at it again this upcoming weekend, and maybe he'll be willing to come down on some of his prices.

Here's hoping.

Say Hello To My Little Flash

Found this little guy in the Target parking lot.

This Flash comes from the fine folks at McDonalds (or that's what his back says anyways). I do vaguly remember this promotion.


Conan Poster

Apparently this was given to my mother when she bought the gift certificate to Coliseum of Comics for my birthday back in September. Yes, that's right, September; so yes it was only a month and a half before she gave it to me.
