Replica Wolverine Claws

A steal at $149.99, you can take home a pair of faux-adamantium (stainless steel) claws that are movie-prop level quality and perfect for the deco nook in your home. They even have the structure that lets you wear them on your hands. Unfortunately, you can’t take them off the base and pose with ‘em.

Don’t see why they couldn’t make this feature. I mean, it’s not like anybody is going to strap them on and do something stupid. They sell an arsenal of Kill Bill swords and ninja stars to fanboys at conventions all the time. Of course, it just takes that *one* case of an apeshit disaffected individual with an X-Men fetish and a score to settle…

Anyway, you can buy ‘em from Sideshow Toys here.

Spider-Man The Musical With Music By Bono

I kid you not, True Believer.

Auditions are underway for Peter Parker in a proposed Spider-Man musical that will feature a score by Bono and The Edge from U2 and will be directed by Julie Taymor (The Lion King).

The casting call for Peter Parker describes him as:

“male, 16-20′s [with a] great rock voice, can be nerdy with understated sex appeal, good sense of humor”

While Parker’s girlfriend, Mary Jane, is:

“female, 16-20′s, beautiful girl next door, strong pop/rock singing voice.”

Top Ten Weird Hulk Toys

The Incredible Hulk is a favorite character of mine, and with his steroidal physique and green skin he’s perfectly made for toys and action figures. Here are ten of the weirdest Hulk toys and licensed products.

10. Hulk Toy Chest

I love how this is essentially a round plastic container with a Hulk head sticking out of it. It’s a little too scary for the playroom, in my opinion.

9. The Hulk Rage Cage

A great name for a toy, great example for a hyper 8-year-old with impulse control issues. Comes with expandable chest and breakable cage.

8. Hulk Jointed Wall Hanger

The basic idea is that you would hang this on your wall and pose the green behemoth’s jointed paper limbs. Yes, that’s about it. Ta-da!

7. Giant Hulk Stuffed Doll

This toy is on the “weird” list mainly because of his precious puss — more of a pout than a roar.

6. Weird Mexican Bootleg Hulk

This unlicensed Hulk has disco hair.

5. Weird Mexican Bootleg Parachuting Hulk

If the Hulk is truly irrational, how will he remember to pull the chute string?

4. Hulk Cupcake Favors

Nothing says “cake decoration” like an angry Hulk head sticking out of frosting.

3. Santa Hulk

Ironically, his heart was two sizes too small.

2. Hulk Vu Writer

What the Hulk does for entertainment between destruction.

1. Hulk Shower Head

Wrong. Completely wrong.

The Worst Comic Strip Ever Made

Cartoon Brew offers the following as one of the worst comic strips ever made: “Uncle Funny Bunny And Chumpy.”

Featuring the adventures of a young chimp sharing a house with who we can only assume is his uncle, the strip has the comedy cadence of a dull thud — making you feel at the end that perhaps, much like the movie “Hancoc,” there were heavy edits and that the original work was really a piece of genius.

Is “Uncle Funny Bunny And Chumpy” indeed the worst comic strip ever made? Judge for yourself!

Bottomless Bellybutton “Graphic Novel Of The Year”

If you are in the market for a graphic novel — and may or may not dig capes and tights — you should check out Dash Shaw’s gargantuan “Bottomless Bellybutton” by Fantagraphics Press. New York Magazine named the book, about a family reunion and parents divorcing after 40 years of marriage, “graphic novel of the year”:

“…720 pages of knotty family drama, emotional teen angst, lyrical passages about nature, good jokes, bad parenting, architectural schematics, rudimentary codes, and explicit sex…”

The book is heavy — literally — but a page-turner. Best of all, unless she or he is offended by gentle frog-faced young men who masturbate in knitting, this is the perfect “starter” graphic novel to give your significant other.

Opus Cartoonist’s Real-Life Medical Drama

An unusual Opus strip ran on Sunday, May 18th — featuring its creator, Berke Breathed, writhing in pain on his kitchen floor.

Opus explains in the strip that Breathed has “spasmodic torticollis,” a condition akin to “being shot in the neck by Mrs. Clinton’s taser gun.” Unable to draw his regularly-scheduled strip because of the pain, Breathed instead drew himself struggling to draw.
