Wonder Woman issue 600 Statue by DC Direct! The New Costume!

By starro on November 08, 2011

Wonder Woman, along with Batman and Superman occupies a key position as one of DC's most recognizable superheroes-and is probably one of the most widely known superheroes period. Because of her status as a DC icon, a consistent appearance has always been an important part of the comic book (or any) marketing strategy. However, it can be a challenge to keep characters created in the 1930s and 1940s new, fresh and interesting (and thus regularly marketable)-costumes, stories, and looks change. Everyone recognizes the classic look of Wonder Woman (aka Diana Prince-princess of the Amazons) from the TV show starring Lynda Carter. In the comics Wonder Woman has undergone several significant costume changes over the years-from subtle shifts of boots and "WW" on her top to the dramatic all white 1960s look to the jacket and leotard look in the 1990s by Messner-Loeb and Deodato (which really OUGHT to be collected!). The latest in Wonder Woman's look comes from a major reboot by Babylon 5 scribe and highly-regarded comic book writer J. Michael Straczynski (aka JMS) from about a year ago. JMS "rebooted" Wonder Woman with issue 600 and essentially re-started the character, featuring Diana lost without her memories, the Amazons scattered with an uncertain future and a new unknown menace. Comic book artist and DC big wig Jim Lee (X-Men, Wildcats, etc.) redesigned the Wonder Woman costume, returning her to the 90s look with jacket and suddenly with proper PANTS! This design has carried over to the new look as part of the "new 52" DC reboot!

Ame Comi Heroine series Wonder Woman version 3!

By starro on September 25, 2011

Wonder Woman, in addition to Batman and Superman, is one of DC Comics' "big three". She is one of their most recognizable heroes and probably one of THE most recognizable superheroes in the western world. Wonder Woman was first published in All Star Comics # 8, in 1941, by famed psychologist William Moulton Marston. Over the years, Wonder Woman has had innumerable costume changes, continuity ret-cons, story mandated costume variation (e.g., armor vs normal outfit), media versions (TV, cartoons, etc) and parallel origin stories to go along with new generations of readers. The Ame-Comi figure line reimagines DC characters in an anime context and given that Wonder Woman is one of DC's most versatile and well-known characters. It comes as no surprise that she should be the most re-imagined of the Ame-Comi pantheon. This version is the 3rd and takes a more futuristic take on the character.

Ame Comi Heroine series Big Barda!

By starro on September 20, 2011

Big Barda (along with Wonder Woman ver. 3-review forthcoming!) is the latest to be given the Ame-Comi treatment! The Ame-Comi artists have reinterpreted her as a space pirate as quoted from the box: "Big Barda and her Female Furies set sail across the sea of space, looking for a life of adventure away from Apokolips. As an interstellar pirate gang aboard their cruiser the Scott Free, Barda's gang is wanted in every solar system. Catch them if you can!" In classic DC continuity, Big Barda is a part of the Jack Kirby "4th World" mythology. Barda is married to Scott Free-aka Mr. Miracle the World's Greatest Escape Artist. She compliments his agility and tenacity with strength and invulnerability. They are part of the New Gods, the benevolent cosmic deities that counter the dark evil of the dark god Darkseid and his minions on the planet Apokolips. Big Barda has had several "looks" over the years, most recently with her big blue battle armor/helmet. But many treatments, including the Batman Beyond version prefer Barda in the "red bikini" version shown here. It is this version that seems to be the inspiration for the Ame-Comi Big Barda.

Jesse Quick as the Flash

By starro on August 06, 2011

Jesse Quick (identified on the box as the Flash) is a relatively new character in the DC Flash pantheon of characters-but she follows the legacy of one of DC’s oldest speedsters-the 1940s Johnny Quick. Jesse Quick’s powers come from reciting the formula “3x2(9y2)4A” enabling her to tap into the Speed Force, the omnipresent source which powers all of the speedsters in the DC Universe. Jesse Quick has been a member of several groups as she’s grown up through the years. She was a member of Young Justice early on, followed by the Justice Society of America and the current incarnation of the Justice League of America.

Black Cat

By starro on May 22, 2011

The Black Cat (aka Felicia Hardy) was introduced in the late 1970s as a female adversary for Spider-Man. The Black Cat is a supremely talented cat burglar with good luck/bad luck powers (i.e., she can locally affect and change probabilities) and has become a fixed member of the modern Spider-Man franchise.

Ms. Marvel

By starro on May 20, 2011

Ms. Marvel Ms. Marvel (aka Carol Danvers) was a classic Bronze-age Marvel superhero. She was originally created as a female version of the Kree hero Captain Marvel but has since evolved throughout the years to become one of the premier characters in Marvel's best selling Avengers books (Captain Marvel himself has since died). Over the years, Ms. Marvel has had prominent appearances in the Avengers and the X-Men, changing costumes, powers and has had an evolving origin story.Her identity as "Binary", an identity she had during her time with the X-Men will be one of the forthcoming variants of this statue, as seen here.

DC Comics Catwoman

By starro on May 13, 2011

Catwoman (aka Selina Kyle) occupies a primary role in the Batman comics mythology as both Batman’s rival but also one of his many love interests. Other than Batgirl, she’s probably one of the best known female character from the franchise and is probably one of the most immediately recognizable comic book characters other than Wonder Woman.

Poison Ivy by Adam Hughes!

By starro on March 14, 2011

For a femme fatale, this rendition of Ivy doesn’t project much sex appeal and really doesn’t have as many curves as I would like.

Batgirl by Adam Hughes

Batgirl by Adam Hughes In many ways, the Adam Hughes sculpt gives a “win-win” to everyone

Lady Maxx (Hot Pink version)

By starro on January 22, 2011

For 18 bucks, this is a pretty amazing figure

Supergirl Version 2

By starro on November 25, 2010

It is typical of all the things that I’ve liked about the Ame Comi line-the reimagined costume, the “pretty girl” pose with just enough tease to make the statue worth it.

Natasha Irons Steel

By starro on November 21, 2010

Natasha Irons Ame Comi has thankfully, taken a distinct turn away from the really anime-looking figures (the big eyes, small necks, and etc.) towards a more real look.
