DC/USPS announce WONDER WOMAN 75th Anniversary Commemorative stamps

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Like Superman and batman before her, WONDER WOMAN will have her 75th anniversary immortalized with a sheet of FOREVER STAMPS (stamps that retain current stamp price value) from the UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE.

This isn’t the Amazonian Warrior Princess’ first stamp, but it is her first full sheet.

The sheet will feature four rows of five stamps, each depicting Wonder Woman over the years.
WonderWoman2016-Pane-v1b

 

On the first row of stamps Wonder Woman of the Modern Age wields a hammer with a power and determination befitting her roots in the heroic world of Greek mythology.

The Bronze Age Wonder Woman’s bold stance empowers the second row of stamps. With her fist held high and bulletproof bracelets gleaming, the Amazon princess leads the charge against injustice.

The third row of stamps depicts Wonder Woman during the Silver Age. Although she possesses great strength and speed, the world’s favorite superheroine prefers compassion to the use of brute force. With her golden lasso of truth close at hand, she compels honesty from her foes.

In the last row of stamps, Wonder Woman from the Golden Age bursts onto the scene as originally envisioned by creator William Moulton Marston.

Art director Greg Breeding of Charlottesville, VA, designed the stamp pane. The Wonder Woman stamps will be issued as Forever stamps and always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce price.

DC plans JUSTICE LEAGUE VS SUICIDE SQUAD mini-event for Dec/Jan

Facebooktwitterredditmail

The WALL STREET JOURNAL announced DC’s first post-REBIRTH event, JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD. FLASH’s Joshua Williamson JLvsSS_Fabok_2will write and NEW 52 JUSTICE LEAGUE artist Jason Fabok will the draw the six issue mini-event, which will ship bi-weekly in December, and finish out weekly in January. The story will also cross over into SUICIDE SQUAD 9 and 10, and JUSTICE LEAGUE 12 and 13.

The team’s class when Batman, after several encounters with Amanda Waller in his own series, questions the need for TASK FORCE X when the JUSTICE LEAGUE is already on hand.  GEOFF JOHNS helped Williamson lay-out the series and which characters will share the spotlight. The story will center around BATMAN, HARLEY QUINN, DEADSHOT, and KILLER FROST, though the cast of both teams (and more) will play a role. “That’s been one of the biggest challenges, easily: trying to make sure every character has a moment, but isn’t forced,” Williamson said, and will explore themes of corruption and redemption, adding “Do you believe in second chances? I think that’s a big part of what Rebirth has been about.”

The story is a part of the REBIRTH continuity, and will have lasting effects on the DCU, including the relaunch of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA as on ongoing. JL of A was originally announced as part of the inaugural REBIRTH laucnh, but has yet to hit stands.

ORIGINAL POST:

 

Having worked out the legalities of shared title usage with HEROIC PUBLISHING, Marvel is gearing up for their latest incarnation of THE CHAMPIONS, spinning out of ALL NEW, ALL DIFFERENT AVENGERS. In the Mighty Marvel manner, they’ve launched a teaser campaign, starting with VIV VISION, the daughter of the automated Avenger, THE VISION from his latest series.
