Comics, Pop Culture items for sale

I have some comic books, including Nightcrawler and Earth 2 on eBay. I'm loving Earth 2 and these are extra copies of issues in my personal collection.

From Wikipedia: In Earth 2, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman seemingly gave their lives in order to repel the Apokoliptan invasion, leaving behind a world with no heroes.[15] Supergirl and Robin (Helena Wayne) end up stranded in the mainstream universe towards the end of the invasion.[16] When the Earth-2 Solomon Grundy threatens the world, three new heroes team up to defeat him: theFlash (Jay Garrick), Hawkgirl (Kendra Saunders), and Green Lantern (Alan Scott).[17] In later issues, Mister Terrific (Michael Holt) from the mainstream universe joins the team. Other heroes who have made appearances include Dr. Fate (Khalid Ben-Hassin), the Atom (Al Pratt), now nuclear-powered, the Sandman (Wesley Dodds), Mister Miracle, and Big Barda

Cheap NM Comics from Marvel and DC

I've put 5 very fine to near-mint comics on eBay. They include DC and Marvel and characters such as Nightcrawler and JSA. There are no Walter Lantz characters in this lot but it is still a good deal for some cool books.

The preview of the upcoming Fantastic Four movie is here! It is definitely different from the other FF movies. Being a fan of the FF comic and Marvel Comics in general, I am interested to see the film.

Giving Paddington Bear Praise

My wife and I took our 4-year-old daughter to see Paddington Bear tonight. I highly recommend the movie.

Without giving away any spoilers, I'll just say it was a good family movie. It was funny, touching and dramatic. There were parts that were somewhat scary for a young child; however, by actually putting the bear in some dangerous situations, it made the movie feel more epic.

Paddington Bear is a good adaptation of a classic cartoon character from the past!

Pink Panther Still Entertains

Another classic cartoon character alongside Woody Woodpecker, Andy Panda, and Mickey Mouse is the Pink Panther.

My daughter recently found reruns of Pink Panther cartoons and loves them. Watching the shows reminded me how amusing they were when I was growing up in the 1970s and 80s.

Fun facts about the Pink Panther is below:

The Pink Panther is the main and title character in the opening and closing credit sequences of every film in The Pink Panther series except for A Shot in the Dark and Inspector Clouseau. His popularity spawned a series of theatrical shorts, merchandise, a comic book, and television cartoons. He starred in 124 short films, 10 television shows and three prime time specials.
