From the cola wars to Civil War

The last two Avengers movies have had tie-ins with Dr Pepper, but it looks like this time Coke gets the nod:


Personally, I don't care about the soda. But check out the awesome design work in that art - specifically, look at everybody's eyes. They've all got something that relates to them: fists for Hulk, shields for Cap, etc. That's some really nice, ultra clever art. Too nice to just be wasted on recyclable aluminum cans.

Visit exotic locales with Turkish Airlines

You know, places like Gotham City:


Or Metropolis:


One question though - don't Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor both have their own private jets?

Anyway, Turkish Airlines is apparently a real company, and although these destinations are fake, there's still real info about them on the TA site.

Metropolis | Gotham City

You should really check those out. There are lots of neat little Easter eggs on there, and even maps of the city. Did you know Gotham and Metropolis were with ferry distance of each other? I didn't!

Comics May Be Late Tomorrow

Due to shipping issues many of our new comics did not arrive today with our weekly shipment.

JUST ARRIVED - Secret Weapon - Tablescapes Tiles: Forgotten City





Secret Weapon - Tablescapes Tiles: Forgotten City (16 Tile Set)

Secret Weapon miniatures produces high quality, pressure cast resin bases for wargaming models and miniatures as well as a full line of weathering pigments, conversion accessories and photo etched brass detailing bits.

Tablescapes Tiles are themed series of 1X1 ft injection molded HIPS plastic tile terrain. Each carefully crafted tile features more than 20 million polygons in resolution and is compatible with a wide variety of scenery and bases, not to mention many other themes in the Tablescapes Tile line! Not only does the terrain look fantastic but it is highly versatile, customizable and easy to assemble and disassemble as well. Tablescapes Tiles can accommodate everything from a warband display board right up to the biggest multiplayer battles. Cross compatibility between themes such as Scrap Yard and Rolling fields means even more possibilities and narratives open up by mixing and matching sets.

Featuring 16 unique tiles in this theme, you would likely be playing for years before ever having to use the same assembly combination twice.

Adding themed scenery only enhances the already staggering possibilities!

Making sure Tablescapes tiles were easy to assemble was a significant priority from day one. Our proprietary compression clips do a better, faster job at not only ensuring a speedy, perfect assembly than anything currently on the market. The priority is making sure breaking down and setting up the board is no obstacle to gaming!




One Tablescapes Tiles set in the Forgotten City theme with 16 tiles (16 unique designs), enough to create a 4x4' table!

Pack contains sixteen tiles.
Tiles are supplied unpainted (stop in Friday's to learn how to paint).
Tiles are 12" x 12".

The women of X-Men go out on the town


That cool art is by Tom Kennedy. Can you recognize who everyone is supposed to be?

(Full disclosure: I had to go to the site and look at the super big version to get the last one.)
