Hello World! Back once again is the Rhyme Animal!! Let’s get busy!!!


Marked #1 (Cover A Brian Haberlin & Geirrod Van Dyke), $3.99
Marked #1 (Cover B Brian Haberlin & Geirrod Van Dyke), $3.99

This creative team deserves a buy. Virtually everything that they have developed has been interesting. If you tried Sonata and liked it, give Marked a go.

Captain Marvel #11 (Cover B Elizabeth Torque Mary Jane Variant), AR

This issue, was teased by writer Kelly Thompson, as having some new context to Star. Star books blew up this week because of the announcement of her first mini-series. Expect there to be vested interest in this book.


X-Men #1 (Cover A Leinil Francis Yu), $4.99

X-Men #1 (Cover K Leinil Francis Yu Premiere Variant), AR

I will literally buy anything Hickman writes so I may be the wrong person to ask, but X-Men #1 is a MUST buy. Every issue of House and Powers have X have sold out and gone to multiple printings. Expect the desire for the X-fix to be high the week after Powers of X #6 completed. If you’re a collector, get those incentives low, and wait for high ratio’s to come down since this book has a plethora of store exclusives and will have a high print run.

And That’s All Folks!

Diamond Select Toys PVC Diorama’s

Hello World! The kind folks at Diamond Select Toys have provided us with three currently in stock PVC Diorama’s for your viewing enjoyment. (And, hopefully purchase!)

First up, is the X-23 All New Wolverine PVC Diorama.

She’s the best there is at what she does, and she gets it from her dad’s side! The all-new Wolverine (formerly X-23, now just Laura Kinney) is the newest entry in the Marvel Gallery line of PVC Dioramas. Measuring approximately 9 inches tall, this detailed sculpture is made of high-quality PVC, and features collectible-quality paint applications. Packaged in a full-color window box. Sculpted by Sam Greenwell!

This diorama is actually quite surprisingly light and does not require a great deal of space. It’s perfect for a collectible case, mantle or even desktop. Most notable, is the detail on Laura’s hair and the sheen of the blue on her costume. A very affordable item for any Howlett fan.

Wolverine PVC Diorama

The X-Men’s resident berserker joins the Marvel Gallery line of PVC dioramas! This 9-inch scale sculpture of Wolverine shows the hero in his classic brown costume, perched on a rock formation with claws extended, ready to tear into an opponent. Featuring detailed sculpting and collectible-quality paint applications, this sculpture comes packaged in a full-color window box. Sculpted by Phil Ramirez!

This PVC Diorama packs a punch! Despite only being 9 inches, this Wolverine is pretty hefty! I guess being a petite Canadian will come in handy for your desktops. Most notable, the painting on the piece. Glistens. Even Logan’s teeth are accentuated.

Mr. Sinister PVC Diorama

One of the most sinister of X-villains joins the Marvel Gallery line of PVC dioramas! Standing approximately 10 inches tall in a cloud of green smoke, this sculpture of the X-Men foe known as Mr. Sinister is made of high-grade plastic and features detailed sculpting and paint applications. He comes packaged in a full-color window box. Designed by Caesar, sculpted by Alterton! 

If you’re going to buy only one today, then we would recommend the Mr. Sinister PVC Diorama. It’s an absolute steal at this price. Most notable, is Nathaniel’s broad wing like cape, detailed costume, and bubbling ooze!

There you have it!! All three PVC Diorama’s can be purchased direct from Diamond Select Toys, NOW.

Thanks for reading!
