I absolutely abhor hyperbole* so believe me when I say that today was the wildest, most busy news day I have ever experienced in all my many years** here at the blog. In between Funko and Super 7, my head was positively spinning.*** Add in the new DKE figures and the Audible news, and well, I guess I’m lucky my head didn’t spin right off.****

*Actually, I love it.
**Since 2018, really
***I’m mostly just hopped up on caffeine.
****Not actually possible….is it?

So, let’s take a look at all the other news, shall we? We haven’t had nearly enough!

  • Writer Geoff Johns has a fantastic new San Diego Comic-Con exclusive for you, and the best part is…it’s FREE! Stop by the Mad Ghost / Geiger Booth #1320 and receive a free, limited edition, full color, 8-page ashcan of the upcoming GEIGER: GROUND ZERO with badge scan.
