    • DC Collectibles at Toy Fair in New York From 13thdimension.com NEW TEEN TITANS MULTI-PART STATUE SET (2018) DC Comics The DC Collectibles booth is one of my favorite stops at Toy Fair. There’s always an eclectic selection and usually a fair number of items that have me calculating my budget for the months ahead. This year, the best item far and away is the 7-piece The New Teen Titans statue set, based on George Perez’s artwork. The 6-inch-scale statues are due to be released on a staggered schedule starting late this summer, so you can buy them individually (at $80 a pop) or collect them all and recreate Perez’s classic The New Teen Titans #1 cover.

    George Perez's Scarlet Witch does not wear underwear

    Wizard Magazine's 1999 “Avengers Special” issue featured an interview with Kurt Busiek and George Perez, the writer and artist respectively of the Avengers comics at the time. When asked for a fact about the Avengers that only he would know, Perez declared to the world that Scarlet Witch “rarely wears underwear.”

    Looking at Perez’s design for Scarlet Witch, it’s easy to imagine her going commando in that revealing outfit. It might not be the most practical decision for fighting but the costume in general isn’t particularly practical. Perez supposedly created his distinctive design as a way to pay tribute to the character’s Romani heritage, but SOMETHING about it gives the impression that there was an additional motive in the design process, and that motive was fan service!
