Justice League Batman is next up in black-and-white statue series

Renowned for his work on Marvel’s Captain Marvel and DC’s Green Lantern series, Brazilian artist Ivan Reis is in a class all his own. And now, with this exclusive collaboration between Reis and sculptor Mat Brouillard, you can own the Dark Knight himself for display among your other DC collectibles.

This stunning statue is crafted according to the aesthetic of the hugely popular comic-book series Justice League. Manufactured as a limited run of 5,200 to honor the quintessential New 52, this six-inch, black-and-white offering isn’t one to sleep on. Batman is encroached upon a fully functional display stand, with one foot off of the base and one foot on to create a “mid-movement” look. Harness the power of Gotham City’s hero now!

Beyoncé, Star Wars or Vonnegut? Valentine’s Day gift guide for your geeky significant other

Okay, so we all know that in some ways, V-Day is a big corporate scam to get you to spend money on useless stuff in the name of “love”. And when it comes to jewelry, it’s way easy to break the bank in a way that may force you to subsist on bananas and bagels for the rest of the month. But what if you still have a dear one beside you that would love a shiny token of your affection on February 14? Hey, maybe you’d like to receive one, too! Whatever your gifting dilemma, you don’t have to surrender your wallet to ~The Man~ to grab an awesome, original prezzie for your sweetheart or close pal that celebrates all the wonderful things they’re into. Check out these rad jewelry alternatives!

1. Heartbeats necklaces by Erica Weiner

Wanting to create affordable, vintage-looking jewelry with plucky pop-culture references, Brooklyn’s Erica Weiner started out as an art student and costumer for Broadway shows. She began making jewelry after work as a stress-relieving hobby, and now she works with eight to ten other women in her studio to bring her creations to life. Because we think it’s pretty cool to support all-lady owned and operated businesses, these badass Heartbeats lyrics necklaces get our stamp of approval. Whether your jam was sung by Fleetwood Mac, Beyoncé or the Talking Heads, you or your honey can wear some of your favorite lyrics around your neck. (I’ve got the R. Kelly one and I hardly take it off!) They’re $55 USD for oxidized silver for $65 USD for 24k gold-plated, so you can cop some lovely bling without hitting the triple digits. Nice!

3. Out of Print’s literary-themed neck candy

If your beloved’s always got their nose in a book, then Out of Print’s products (based on iconic and classic novels) will totally be their thing. I’m really digging the cursive “Doubleplusgood” necklace referencing George Orwell’s 1984, and this To Kill a Mockingbird inspired charm necklace. The special recipient of this gift can fondly recall The Bell Jar, The Catcher in the Rye, Alice in Wonderland and other legendary works of literature every time they look down. All of their pieces are approximately $30 USD, and if you throw in their Library Stamp tee, Out of Print will send a book to a community in need. Pretty fab!

What are you doing to celebrate with your sweetie pie or dear friends come February 14? (By the way, a solo Netflix and mint-chocolate-chip ice cream marathon counts as celebrating, too.)

Montreal to host Mini Comiccon in December

To mark the halfway point after one Montreal Comiccon and the next one, the wonderful folks who the yearly toy and fan spectacle put together the Mini Comiccon for one day during the winter.

Now fans have more opportunities to cosplay, purchase the comic-related stuff on their holiday lists and mingle with like-minded people!

The 2014 Mini Comiccon will be held at Montreal’s Palais de congrès on December 7 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission for adults is $5, or free for children 12 and under.

The New 52 Green Lantern will look fierce and keep your change safe

From manufacturers Monogram comes this six-inch-tall bust bank! The New 52’s revamped rendition of the iconic DC star Green Lantern is shown here flexing and turning slightly to the side, fist clenched. He’s ready to contemplate his next move and dole out justice all at once. From the very first Green Lantern, Alan Scott, in 1940, to the 2011 re-working of the legendary jewel-toned superhero, this guy is an absolutely crucial member of the DC Comics roster. This bank will be shipping out in January, but you can reserve it now! Display this bust and use it to save up extra change for your next figurine — a statue, perhaps?

Because pictures are fun! DC movies, 2016 ’til 2020

Where will you be in six years? Me, I’m a simple person — really, I’ll be happy if I can finally cook something other than ramen in 2020. But DC has far loftier goals than I, apparently. For all of you visual learners out there, here’s a graphic plan of DC movie titles for the next six 365-day carousels of humble human existence. Which will happen if the world doesn’t eventually succumb to a zombie-ebola apocalypse, that is.
