Separated At Birth?

I’ve enjoyed Black Hammer from Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston and was happy to pick up the new spin-off miniseries, Sherlock Frankenstein and the Legion of Evil.

When I glanced at the variant cover by the ever awesome Mike Mignola, I couldn’t help but think I’d seen it before, and it only took a moment for me to remember where:

The Amazing Screw On Head is a great collection of short stories but the similarity between the two main characters makes me wonder if Mignola was maybe rushed for time and re-used some old art?

Either way, they’re both great covers.

Scary Clown, Camp Villain

It should come as no surprise now that my Lego minifigure habit is in full swing; I’ve even done some silly web comics with them.

So, while perusing the site a friend recommended (damn you, Spike!) I came across a weird mash-up figure that just proves that you can make clowns even scarier than they are already.

Yep, someone, somewhere had the bright idea of merging creepy Ronald McDonald . . . with Heath Ledger’s Joker face.

Just in case that gives you the chills and you need something to calm down with, how about the campest supervillain in the world:

Yes, of course I ordered one, but look at that promotional image – I don’t know if it’s the raised leg, the tilted head or the overall design, but Parallax looks positively divine, darling!
