Unboxing March’s Marvel Collector Corps: Captain Marvel


Marvel Collector Corps recently released their Captain Marvel themed box. I finally got around to opening mine and was surprised at what I found inside. The last few boxes were...unspectacular. This is a sentiment that I’ve found is shared with other MCC fans in social media.

It felt like they weren’t putting as much creativity into them as they once did, leaving fans with a hit or miss affair. But, THIS box takes us back to the glory days of the MCC. We get two exclusive POP!’s, a t-shirt, and a drinking glass. Still no patch and pin, but hopefully they’ll get back to that in the future.

The glass, featuring Captain Marvel herself, is pretty good quality. It’s got some weight to it and has a picture of Carol and the tag line “Higher, Further, Faster” printed on it. Next up was the t-shirt, which I gotta say, I LOVE. It’s a POP! version of the Captain Marvel poster and one of the best tees they’ve released.



This time, thankfully, we didn’t get another Movie Moment. Funko has been releasing a lot of those in their boxes lately. Instead we get two awesome POP! figures. The first is a glow-in-the-dark unmasked Captain Marvel. She’s mid-flight and ready to kick some ass. The second figure is Nick Fury holding his furry friend, Goose the cat. These figures alone were worth the price of the box. The next MCC themed box is Avengers: Endgame. Keep an eye out for that unboxing!



Inside this MCC box:

-Higher, Further, Faster Captain Marvel Glass
-Funko POP! Captain Marvel T-shirt
- Exclusive Glow-in-the-Dark Captain Marvel POP! Figure
-Exclusive Nick Fury w/Goose the cat POP! Figure

Stan Lee Bootleg Funko POP!


eBay currently has dozens of listings for a bootleg Stan Lee figure wielding the Infinity Gauntlet. The figure looks to use the Stan Lee Guardians of the Galaxy body and the Infinity War Thanos Infinity Gauntlet. The original idea, as far as I can find, comes from custom POP! artist Bottle Cap Customs.

Out of curiosity, I ordered one for the low price of $14.99, hoping that it would at least look half way decent. It arrived from China in roughly 3 weeks from the date I ordered it. The box it was shipped in fit the POP! box perfectly, which was kind of a bummer because any damage the outer box suffered, the inner box suffered as well. Fortunately, the figure didn’t suffer any damage.

The custom box features pictures of the custom Stan Lee and has an Avengers: Endgame logo. The figure itself looks great. It’s exactly the same size as an original Funko POP! figure. It’s also, just like an official Marvel POP!; a bobble head. This thing will look great standing next to the rest of your Marvel Funko collection! Check out the pictures below for a better look.

Reebok Alien Stomper 40th Anniversary OG


Alien day is coming April 26th! What better way to celebrate than getting your hands on a pair of 40th anniversary Reebok Alien Stompers. The shoes, which go live on Thursday, April 26th at 9 p.m., can be found on their website. They run $125.00 and unfortunately some of us are going to be in a theater watching Avengers: Endgame at that time. Hopefully I'll be able to snag a pair as soon as the movie is over. Will you be getting a pair?

Description via Reebok:

Inspired by sketches and memoirs from Ridley Scott and artist Ron Cobb, this Alien Stomper pays homage to the prototypes and original concepts from the classic film. The logos and designs featured on this new shoe reflect logo concepts never used in the original release of Alien, all created by the movie's design team leading up to its 1979 debut. Premium aged leather and a vintage effect allude to a prototype that's been discovered 40 years later, and the vintage box and certifice provide authenticity.

Terror Reigns in Celine Loup’s Graphic Novel THE MAN WHO CAME DOWN THE ATTIC STAIRS From BOOM! Studios


BOOM! Studios has announced THE MAN WHO CAME DOWN THE ATTIC STAIRS, a new original graphic novel inspired by the works of Shirley Jackson and Ira Levin, in which acclaimed comics creator Celine Loup weaves a tale of horror and suspense that captures the isolation of postpartum depression, while exploring the very real fears associated with new motherhood. Arriving in stores September 2019.   

Emma is excited to start a family in her new home, but after her child’s birth she finds her world turning upside-down. The infant cries like it’s scared of something, or someone, and Emma’s sleepless nights quickly drive a wedge between her and her husband, who seems uncharacteristically detached. When Emma begins to see strange things in the house, the line between reality and fantasy blurs and her grasp of what’s real and what’s not becomes even more clouded. Is something unnatural haunting the nursery? And what if it also affected her husband, who ventured up into the attic when they first arrived…  

Celine Loup is an illustrator and Ignatz Award-nominated cartoonist who currently lives in France. She has done illustration work for The New York Times, The New Yorker, The A.V. Club, Variety, Lucky Peach, and Medium. Loup is the acclaimed creator of popular comics such as Honey and Mother, as well as her current ongoing series, Hestia. Her work has garnered an Ignatz Awards nomination, recognition on the Best American Comics "Notable Books" list,  and acclaim from American Illustration, The Society of Illustrators, and CMYK.  

"I wanted to tell a story about a fear that women dare not speak aloud, not even to themselves, often until after it's too late. Motherhood brings so much joy to the women who experience it, but for many it can feel like a prison, and no one can be certain until they've crossed a point of no return how it will be for them.” said creator, Celine Loup. “Horror's greatest potential is the gift of empathy, and I hope THE MAN WHO CAME DOWN THE ATTIC STAIRS will create a space in which we can reach out to each other in times of personal crisis without fear of judgement."  

THE MAN WHO CAME DOWN THE ATTIC STAIRS is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ ambitious Archaia imprint, home to graphic novels such as Mouse Guard by David Petersen; New World by David Jesus Vignolli; Jane by Aline Brosh McKenna and Ramón Pérez; About Betty’s Boob by Vero Cazot and Julie Rocheleau; Bolivar by Sean Rubin; and licensed series including Lev Grossman’s The Magicians: Alice’s Story by Lilah Sturges and Pius Bak; Jim Henson’s The Power of the Dark Crystal and Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Coronation.  

“Celine’s work oozes with emotion. With a single look her characters reveal their humanity or, perhaps in this case, lack thereof,” said Sierra Hahn, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Like the very best horror films, THE MAN WHO CAME DOWN THE ATTIC STAIRS conjures from its audience sincere empathy for its protagonist and a deep sense of unease for what lives within the shadows . . .”  

Print copies of THE MAN WHO CAME DOWN THE ATTIC STAIRS will be available for sale September 18, 2019 at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one), September 24, 2019 at bookstores, or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app
