SMASHCON 9 (18 Nov 2017)
Sanford, Florida
As most of you know today was local comic shop day (November 18, 2017) and it was also the 9th anniversary of Smash Comics and Games in Sanford Florida.  SmashCon 9 as it's actually known.

Among the events and festivities that happened was an appearance by newly inducted Hall of Famer George Perez.  Earlier this year, George had a heart attack and, for now, has had to stop doing conventions until his doctor has cleared him... but he was able to make an appearance today and signed autographs and posed for pictures.

He has lost some weight and joked about having to buy some new clothes because nothing fits him now.  He had a very good day and was glad he could come out and help support the store.

WONDER WOMAN: AMBASSADOR OF TRUTH (Hardcover) (24 Oct 2017)
Harper Design
The Wonder Woman: Ambassador of Truth Hardcover Book by Signe Bergstrom, which came out last month, features some George Perez's art, as uploaded by Amazon. Thanks to Ilke.


>>>
A gorgeous, authorized celebration of one of the most popular and enduring Super Heroes of all time—Wonder Woman—that chronicles the life and times of this pop-culture phenomenon and image of women’s strength and power, from her origins and role as a founding member of the Justice League to her evolution in television and film.

"As lovely as Aphrodite—as wise as Athena—with the speed of Mercury and the strength of Hercules—she is known only as Wonder Woman, but who she is, or whence she came, nobody knows!"—All-Star Comics #8 (December 1941-January 1942)

Created by William Moulton Marston and introduced at the beginning of America’s involvement in World War II, Wonder Woman—the fierce warrior and diplomat armed with bulletproof Bracelets of Victory, a golden tiara, and a Lasso of Truth—has been a pop-culture icon and one of the most enduring symbols of feminism for more than seventy-five years. Wonder Woman: Ambassador of Truth now tells the complete illustrated story of this iconic character’s creative journey. Signe Bergstrom examines Wonder Woman’s diverse media representations from her wartime comic book origins to today’s feature films, and explores the impact she has had on women’s rights and empowerment and the fight for peace, justice, and equality across the globe.

Wonder Woman: Ambassador of Truth brings together a breathtaking collage of images—from the DC comic books, the 1970s-era television show starring Lynda Carter, her numerous animated appearances, the June 2017 Wonder Woman feature film called "the best DC universe film yet", and the November 2017 film Justice League. Fully authorized by Warner Bros. Consumer Products, this lush full-color compendium features inserts and exclusive interactives, and illuminating interviews and anecdotes from key artists, writers, and personalities involved in bringing Wonder Woman to life across the years.

Cyborg Nano Metalfigs

posted Nov 18, 2017, 6:31 PM by Vu Nguyen

From Vu

I saw these Metal Die Cast "Nano Metafigs" at Target and Walmart for $1 each. One of the DC figures is Cyborg, by itself, or in the 5-Pack, 10-Pack, or 20-Pack (priced at $5, $10, and $20, respectively). 

If you get the packs, they include exclusive figurines/re-paints, so it might be worth it if you're planning on collecting these.  I think $1 is a great price for per figurine, but if you're like me, you just want to own your own Justice League or Avengers, so you'll spending at least $10 to make your team. 

Some figures are more popular or harder to find, so you might have a little trouble finding Cyborg by himself.

Gillette Teams Up With Justice League

JUSTICE LEAGUE (Film) (17 Nov 2017)
Warner Brothers
It's Justice League Day today (November 18, 2017). Did you guys get a chance to see the blockbuster film?  We've already seen it, it's a lot of fun.

Anyway, I've already mentioned that you can now pick up the various Justice League / Gillette Gift Packs at your local retailers (see pricing and details below), but I finally got my hands on the actual physical items to play around with.  The promotion is for Gillette's "The Best a Super Hero Can Get" (based on their slogan "The Best a Man Can Get").

These gift packs are a good deal, considering that buying a Gillette Fusion5 razor is $14.99 by itself (I just checked at my local Target today, they are on sale for $12.99 this week).  These gift packs are only $10* and comes with bonus shaving gels and extra cartridges.  They make a great gift for any Justice League fans.  If you're buying for yourself, these gift packs are a great way to try out on these deluxe razor blades for an affordable price.  It's definitely an upgrade if you're currently using disposable razors. 

The big differences between the Gillette Mach3 vs the Fusion5, I've noticed is that Mach3 only shifts up & down, while the Fusion5 does up & down and left & right - making the Fusion5 a superior product to glide over any bumpy facial surface.  As for electric shaver vs the a five blade razor Gillette razor, the blades cuts much closer and cuts more hair.  You'll feel much smoother with a real razor blade.

For promotion, Gillette has also produced a limited number of custom Justice League razor handles for store displays or promotional giveaways.  These handles are 3D-printed and really aren't meant for practical shaving - but they sure do look cool in the display box.

That's not all, they've also help produced the Justice League VR: Gillette Edition (which is the same as the Justice League VR: Join the League), a free virtual reality game for the iPhone or Android devices.  If you are using Android, you must also download Google Cardboard, as it access the VR technology in the Cardboard application.  To help promote the VR game, Gillette has also sent out these fold-able custom cool Justice League Cardboard (made of a hardened plastic material).  While the Cardboard looks very cool, it also feels very fragile against the weight of a big phone.  I recommend using your own VR headset if you have one.

* The two exceptions are the Batman & Wonder Woman packages are sold for $15, but comes with extra body wash and shaving gels.

 Gillette's limited edition “Justice League” inspired gift packs details:
  • Justice LeagueTM The Flash TM Sensor3 Sensitive Special Edition Gift Pack

TITANS (Television Show) (2018)
Warner Bros
cbr.com mentioned that Doom Patrol may appear on Titans, as mentioned by @geoffjohns ... and there may be some truth to that as thathashtagshow.com wrote that Elasti-Girl is one of the new recurring guest star. Other guesses includes Speedy/Red Arrow, Angela Roth, and Brother Blood.

>>>
[DANIEL CROSS] Male, 17-19, Caucasian. Athletic, street smart, cocky, yet charming. His life is changed forever when he crosses a crime fighter and is given a new outlet for his rebellious ways. RECURRING GUEST STAR.

[JENNIFER ANDREWS] Female, 20s/30s, Caucasian. Small town, Midwestern girl gone to Hollywood, Jennifer is a star on the rise. She comes across a doe-eyed, All-American and naive in her approach to her art, and life. Jennifer emulates the classic girl-next-door actors from the 1940’s and 50’s. A bit Stepford-y in her thinking and appearance, Jennifer feels like a woman out of time. RECURRING GUEST STAR.

[CAROLINE] Female, 40s, Caucasian. Forever sleepless with worry, she’s the mother to a young, troubled teen. Seeking a recognizable cameo face or name. GUEST STAR.

[THE MESSENGER] Male, 50s-60s, Open ethnicity. Outwardly a warm and kind presence, he doesn’t seem the type to be powerful or malicious. But he has the ability to turn on a dime and be the most terrifying man you have ever met. Seeking offer only names/recognizable faces…RECURRING GUEST STAR.
