I'd really love to see this company tackle the DC characters.  They would have my money in a heartbeat.

I recently sold almost all of my Bowen Busts (kept Hawkeye and Luke Cage....still have a Black Widow to sell), but I gotta tell ya, the more I see of these little gems, the more tempted I am to get into collecting them.

Deadpool is just a conduit for self serving comic in-jokes.

"Wade" in that....

Hmm. I think I'd prefer Luke Cage in his original boots for some reason.

I like Deadpool too.

I think he can be funny when wrtten by the right person - Gail Simone or Joe Kelly for example.

Deadpool, Lobo, & the Punisher:



My top 3 characters I don't "get."

I never "got" Deadpool or the Punisher, but for me Lobo has ALWAYS been DC's doppelganger for Wolverine, more or less.  Since EVERYTHING seems to be more "cosmic" and more "powerful" in the DC Universe, DC's version of Wolverine would probably have to be a Superman-class brawler, expecially since DC doesn't really have anything that's equivalent to Adamantium.

That's always been my take on the character, anyway.

Rather less than more! Altho Lobo was clearly DC's attempt to pump up a lame character, and turn him into their Wolverine, they missed the mark by several hundred lightyears. Alas, there were plenty of fans to pronounce Lobo "cool", simply because he was arrogant and "broke the rules", while possessing none of the depth of characterization Wolverine had developed over the years.

When Lobo started using all those ropes instead of chains is when I thought they were pulling it back a bit, but it didn't stick.

Back on topic...I thought Luke Cage's pants were blue - why do you want them black, JB?

Luke Cage's pants were originally black, I'd forgotten about his boots.
