Special Saturday Edition!
Welcome back y’all, I’m gonna hit ya with a bunch of craziness today.
Star Wars Tales 24, 24 Photcover
First appearance of Darth Traya & Darth Nihilus
Along with Darth Bane and Darth Revan, who’s first I mentioned a few weeks ago.
Adding Traya makes some sense when trying to speculate on what part of the Star Wars canon or legends the GOT creators might tap for their show.
I would add Legacy too but I hope they focus on the Sith over anything else.
Disney Adventures Summer 2002
First Kim Possible
Disney is putting together a live action Kim Possible movie. Her first is in the often tough to find series.
Kim Possible Vol. 1
First Kim Possible cover
Circe is rumored to be the Wonder Woman 2 villain. Here are the books to hunt for…
Wonder Woman 37
First appearance of Circe
Circe redesign and first cover
Action Comic 243
First appearance of Circe in Superman
Wonder Woman 305 ( Canadian price variant preferred )
Wonder Woman 17
First post-crisis Circe
Men of War 2
First Circe post Flashpoint
Action Man Annual 1979
First appearance of Action Man
The world has totally gone bonkers. UK’s version of G.I. Joe, Action Man is being developed by the Muppet people?! Action Man’s first is not gonna be an easy one to locate though.
Other notable issues:
Action Man 1 Tower Records with gift
This one is a ghost and arguably just as good a candidate for first comic appearance
Unit E NYCC Hasbro Exclusive ( Limited to 1000 )
Now that we know the connected Hasbro cinematic universe is is in danger of falling apart this one losses some of it’s luster. If they ever get it back on track this is the book to buy. Unfortunately it too is a bit of a ghost as well.
IDW released a series with w covers, 1, 1 Sub, 1 1:10 and a Toy cover
The Harley Quinn cartoon is shaping up to be a unique animated experience. We are gonna get the typical appearances by characters like the Joker, Poison Ivy etc but there are a few obscure characters who are going to be featured:
Hawk and Dove 21
First appearance of Malice Vundabar
Harley Quinn 2
First appearance of Syborg
There are multiple printings for this book.
Wonder Woman 5
First appearance of Dr Psycho
First appearance of the post Flashpoint Dr. Psycho
Moon Girl 1
First published pro work by Rahzzah Murdock
On occasion I like to spotlight an artist I really dig that people might be fully aware of. This dude has some pretty amazing covers. Anyone catch that She-Hulk 162?
New Superman 20
First appearance of new chest emblem
Yea this series kinda blows but it looks like DC is trying to fix it and the new design is a good start. Add to that the upcoming first appearance of the Aquaman of North Korea and I’m in, at least for a little while.
