Another week, another five posts to produce for the Fortress of Baileytude.

Not that I’m complaining, mind you.  I have been having an absolute ball with this blog.  I managed to post every week day in July, so that’s a good track record for a relaunch.  More than anything I hope y’all are liking what you see here and keep those comments coming.

Today I have three kind of random pictures.  Two are recent acquisitions and one of a preview image of sorts.  Recently the financial down turn that my wife and I had been going through has turned around so we are not flat broke.  This has allowed me to pick up a thing or two that I’ve had my eye on.  The first is a poster I chanced upon a month or so back and got a really good deal on.  Recently I have started collecting promotional posters from Superman’s past and this…this was a good one.

Ain’t it cool?

I am really starting to like these posters.  As a matter of fact I have decorating plans for this posters and more like it, but that will have to wait.  For now, I have this awesome piece of Superman history taped to my wall.

Next up is something that I have been wanting for a long time.  I finally found one, though and boy am I glad to have it.  You may look at it and think it is an action figure two-pack.  I look at it as proof that Mattel wants my money.

This two pack is composed of 150% awesome.  For those interested this is an action figure re-creation of the cover of DC Comics Presents #49.  I haven’t taken them out of the package yet but I soon will, so I’ll take more pictures then.  For now, bask in the glory that is Superman and He-Man getting ready to throw down.

Finally, a picture that is also a preview.

What you are looking at is every issue of Superman, Action Comics and Supergirl published since Infinite Crisis ended, going up to Superman #700.

Why have I assembled these comics?

That would be telling, but suffice to say I have plans for these books.  Plans that involve Views From The Longbox.

Stay tuned for that.

Well, that is it for today.  Come back tomorrow for YouTube Tuesday.

More to follow…

    I’ve been trying to get around to reading those Superman books too. I need to start at the beginning of the Brainiac story and work my way through the end.

    You have me seriously intrigued with your tease there. And the Superman/He-Man figures have my envy juices flowing.

    Did this tease ever get followed up on?

    No. It was one of my many, many never to be completed projects.
