Didn't know where else these would go. Found them in Meijer's greeting card section, thought the were cute. DC Hero sticker sheets.

Typical DC! None of the characters in the costumes they wear in the comics and movies.

As Dick Giordano said when I started there “There are now two versions of Superman. The one you draw, and the one we license.”

I should have headed for the door right then!

I really don’t get it.
Clearly, they understand that the public have an ideal of hat these
characters should look like, so why not stick to it?
Harlequin in Suicide squad bore no resemblance to the one above - so
either they expect people to know this, in which case why do it, or they
expect people to go ‘Who’s that character?’
& I know which of the two versions would prompt a response of ‘A
Harlequin?’ From the uninitiated.

Well, sometimes, you don’t realise when you’ve been making a mistake for
most of your life.
I never clicked that her name was different, & assumed it was spelt that
way. My mind just read it as the usual way of writing that word.
I have literally speed read over her name since her debut, & not once
actually committed to memory how it is actually written.
Wow.

Finished the LEGO Disney 100th Anniversary movie camera. Very cute. As usual, clever the way they utilize existing bricks.

Quick build. Probably about 4 hours total.

I don't collect Disney pins, but I like this one a lot.

I see there’s a giant (61”) Lego-like Battlestar Galactica — for $3,000!

I think I can resist.

When Paul Levitz was in charge at DC he would have made arrangements to send me one of those.
