DC Power Poster
But there are a few things we'll pick up while we are there. This year we got some Secret Invasion variants and checked out a new comic book called Super Frat. We also got the great Lopresti sketch from the previous post - one of my favorite things we brought home this year. And we talked with good ole Sal a bit over at the Alex Ross booth and picked up some copies of Atomika #9.
At the Diamond booth we got a retailer gift - the DC Cover Girls hard cover book. Which is really nice. I am tempted just to keep it for myself (like the Fables covers book that's solicited in the June Previews that I SO want). The one thing I am keeping for myself is one of the giveaway posters DC had in their booth. It's the one pictured - the Real Power of the DC Universe, showing a number of DC's great gals dressed to the nines. I really think it's a GREAT poster!!! And it was free, so that's pretty dang cool too. I think it's GREAT that DC made this poster - a wonderful piece of art in and of itself, while also paying a bit of homage to their female stars, both the good and the not so good. This was the best con give away and I saw lots of people picking it up.
THANK YOU, DC COMICS!
