Late night and an early morning…

…so let me remind you MEN (sorry, ladies!) to wash up with only the most superheroic of soaps, as spotted in my local grocery store:

    Not having an unscented bar called Stark Naked is a missed opportunity.

    What is the best storage strategy to keep these in Gem Mint condition for future fun and profit?

    I would have loved the Hulk soap as a kid. “Argh, Hulk clean now!”

    Holy Stan Lee!

    Did Marvel ever market soaps before? It would have been a perfect merchandising topic for Stan’s Soap Box back in the ’70s!

    Where’s the Wolverine bar of soap–scented of whisky and Cuban cigars…?

    DC should get in on this action, but also market it to the ladies with Wonder Woman, Powergirl, and Amethyst soaps.
    Will CGC come up with plastic cubes to encase 9.0 condition bars of soap in?

    I’ve still have my can of Spider-Man spray foam soap marketed sometime in the ’70s.

    Let me guess, “Divine Storm” was chosen before Dr. Squatch lost the solid cleanser rights to the X-Men and the Fantastic Four.

    @ Ozma G

    That’s cool!

    Different topic,but I see that Marvel and DC have reached an agreement to reprint their crossover comics and Amalgam comics as omnibuses. Makes me wonder what new crossovers people would like to see between the two companies? I think an Eternals/New Gods crossover by John Byrne and or/Walter Simonson would be fun…also a Doom Patrol/X-Men crossover using the Silver Age iterations of the teams…maybe drawn by Steve Rude…and JSA (All-Star Squadron)/Invaders (All-Winners Squad) WWII-based crossover by Roy Thomas and Jerry Ordway. And if it were possible to salvage the original George Perez pages from the first JLA/Avengers project, that would be cool. Maybe Swamp Thing/Man-Thing, Howard the Duck/Captain Carrot, and Omega Men/Micronauts would be interesting as well (if Marvel were to secure the rights to publish new The Micronauts
    stories again).

    The Iron Man one should have been “Demon in a Bubble”

    Nope, sweat and body hair!

    “Swamp Thing/Man-Thing,”

    Pay for one more license and throw in the original Carrot-Nose, the Heap!

  • Sean Mageean says:

    @Snark Shark

    The Heap should be public domain…unless Eclipse Comics acquired the rights from Hillman Comics…but considering that James Robinson did an Airboy comic over at Image about seven years ago, and Chuck Dixon has done a few Airboy comics here and there with various independent publishers over the last decade or so, I think that all the Airboy characters are in the public domain.

    But, it would be fun to have Michael T. Gilbert do a “Mr. Monster Destroys All Muck Monsters” one-shot featuring Swamp Thing, Man-Thing, The Heap, The Bog Beast, and all other Muck Monsters.

  • Snark Shark says:

    “Eclipse Comics”

    Yeah, I know they used him with Airboy/Valkirie, but I don’t know who owns any of that. There are some good, old characters & art in plenty of GOlden Age comics I’ve never seen, because that stuff is so expensive and hard to find.

    “Michael T. Gilbert do a “Mr. Monster Destroys All Muck Monsters””

    @Snark Shark

    You might want to check out Gwandanaland Comics…they basically package public domain comics in square bound graphic novel format. I’ve bought a bunch of 1940s MLJ Comics characters stories through them….for instance, you can get the complete The Comet by Jack Cole, the complete Black Hood, etc. They also have the complete Black Condor, Ray, etc. for Quality Comics characters. All scanned from original comic books from the Golden Age.

    Sean: Cool! Thanks!
