Swamp Thing Archive

  • Sometimes I think that basically all of DC’s characters are iconic, then I remember characters like Rainbow Girl and think, “yeah, maybe not so much.” So of course their Icons line has everyone you would expect: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Swamp Thing, and even some villains like the Joker (of course!). Some of them seem a little less, um, iconic (Firestorm, really?), but the lineup looks great so far–if you like male heroes. Not many girls here, it seems.

  • Kidrobot has been collaborating with Marvel for a while now, and at Toy Fair they announced that they’re teaming up with DC too! This seems to be a trend: it happened with Sideshow and Kotobukiya, so this doesn’t exactly come as a surprise. The announcements, however, are a mixed bag. Let’s start with the great: the Labbit line looks amazing and I want all of them right now! Their character miniseries, however, has highs and lows. They went with a very cutesy, almost infantile style that works well on some characters (kawaii Superman, ahh!), is kind of horrifying on some (the smiling Joker, nightmare fuel), and is dementedly cute on others (little Deadman, yes please). Others, like Wonder Woman, just look… off. If someone offers these un-blind boxed I will for sure snap up a few (Swamp Thing, come to momma).

  • We have already shown you the Bombshells at DC’s San Diego Comic Con booth this year (and to be perfectly honest, those are the only things I care about!) but of course there were many more goodies to behold. Okay, I lied, there is one other thing I care about–a certain Swamp Thing. A majestic, beautiful Swamp Thing that I definitely have to own. There’s also statues, action figures, Batman, Harley Quinn, the Joker and…. no Superman in sight?! Check them all out in the gallery! [Pictures courtesy of our lovely SDCC corespondent, Missy!]
