There are a LOT of comic blogs out there. It seems there are more and more people with opinions on the Comics industry each and every day. From fan to retailers to comic creators and everyone in between, everyone is talking the goods and bads of Comics and all that the Industry holds. And, yes, we absolutely have our own input. Here in the "Our Thoughts" Blog section, we are going to talk about a multitude of topics. Each staff member will get the chance to speak their mind, talk new product or perhaps just ramble on about life.
For our first "Our Thoughts" segment we thought we could start with a soft but bright topic. We want to introduce a new Monthly segment that we hope will also bring you, our customers, into the conversation. "Takin' a Shelfie" will spotlight both new and older items including books, games and toys that you should have on your shelves. But we do not only want our own Shelfies. We want yours too! But... We will get to that a little later.
So... Let's talk about what you should have on your shelf!

DC UNIVERSE HARLEY QUINN ARTFX+ STATUE
Kotobukiya continues their line of incredibly beautiful, yet affordable (Harley is only $69.99), line of DC Comics Heroes and Villains statuary with Harley Quinn. Wearing her classic costume and carrying her signature hammer, Harley is ready to be the next lethal smile standing tall (1/10th scale) upon your shelf.
GHOSTS LOVE CANDY CARD GAME
Ghosts LOVE candy! This is a fact. Why else would Halloween be their favorite Holiday? But as an incorporeal creature of the night it is difficult to actually pick up and consume candy. That is why, on Halloween night, you can take control of the bodies of the children and trick-or-treat to your little ghost heart's content. But don't eat too much or you might throw up. At $19.95, this quick card game, created by Steve Jackson Games (Munchkin), is great for all ages and perfect for the next family game night.
