New Gods Darkseid (content pages)

He is Darkseid, lord of Apokolips!

NEW GODS DARKSEID!!!

Jack Kirby's New Gods are currently enjoying a surge in popularity -- and to capitalize on that interest, DC Direct is releasing new action figures of these classic characters! Here, we review the New Gods Darkseid.  (5/13/08)

A Crayon Haiku #79! (content pages)

Someone should be fired for this.

A Crayon Haiku #79!

Thanks to the divine forces of randomness and impulse, the ad pictured in A Crayon Haiku #79 finally makes its amazing debut! Which really isn't so much amazing as it is disturbing. People got paid to make this?  (5/13/08)

Ph33r teh Legion... of D00M!!!

A Crayon Haiku #78!

And they just keep on coming! The Legion of Doom gains yet another evil member in A Crayon Haiku #78. There's yet another bonus haiku as well, though this one is about things lost rather than gained. So sad.  (5/13/08)

New Gods Darkseid — and Haiku!

That's right -- at long last, we have another article! But first, two new Crayon Haiku (three if you're counting): A Crayon Haiku #78 and A Crayon Haiku #79. #78 shows the continued growth of our action figure Legion of Doom and an unfortunate incident with Batzarro (at least the arm sticks back in there, eh? 😐 ), and #79 is just... ugh. I've actually had that advert around here since the site began -- it really should have been A Crayon Haiku #8 or something -- but every time I saw it I shuddered and decided to postpone the scanning. Well, here it is. Isn't that the worst ad photo ever? I mean, the woman might not look too bad with makeup and clothing and a less awkward pose, but as it stands she just looks skanky and gross. And stinky. Yuck.

So now that we've gotten the appetizers out of the way, here's the main course: a review of DC Direct's New Gods Darkseid figure. The review says it all, but I quite like this guy! I mean, he's freaking Darkseid -- what's not to like? Oh, and if you click on the smaller images in this feature, you'll see that I've decided to swallow my hatred of javascript and try something new... that something being Lightbox 2. Barring any unforeseen problems, I think I'll keep it around, but of course your input is always welcome and appreciated. Let me know if you love it, despise it, et cetera. At the very least, it eliminated the need to press back and/or switch tabs and windows to look at the larger versions of images, eh?

And that's all for today's update! Until next time, then... :mrgreen:

A Crayon Haiku #77!

Hey all! It's been a while since the last update, but I wanted to make absolutely sure that y'all didn't miss The Sarah Jane Adventures Drinking Game and had ample time to get your drink on with Miss Smith. That's my story and I'm sticking with it. 😉

Anyway, to kick May off, we've got A Crayon Haiku #77... which actually has two 5-7-5 poems. The first is nothing new to you if you've read my personal blog lately, but I finally got a Scarecrow figure to bring my Legion of Doom membership count to five. (Though I guess this is the first time Lex Luthor and Black Manta have appeared on SC as well, huh?) And I'd been sort of sitting on the second haiku for some time -- ever since I read Salvation Run #4 a couple of months ago, actually. Originally I was going to make it a Hot Flash, but then I decided to make it a quick haiku... and then I decided to reshoot it with the Batman/Superman Series 5 Joker after I got that figure. (I'd previously used one from the "The Batman" figure line.) And then I forgot about it again. Anyway, lest I put it off any longer, I decided to lump it in and make this one of those rare two-haiku installments. Enjoy. 🙂

More substantial fare coming soon -- after all, I do have that Kong review to finish! And I did come across a Supreme Kong at a decent price, so I may even have to expand the Kong review to three parts. We'll see.

Until next time, then!
