With so many great action figures, statues, replicas and other geeky great products available, there’s no shortage of opportunities to expand your DC collections. In fact, there’s so much great stuff that it’s sometimes hard to know where to begin. Is that new figure worth your time? Or would your budget be better spent on the latest graphic novels, or saving up for that amazing Wonder Woman statue you’ve been eyeing?
The heroes of Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will soon unite to defend the planet from an extraterrestrial threat in a four-part crossover episode entitled, “Invasion.” While that name may ring a bell for many of our longtime and fiercely devoted fans, it certainly won’t for everyone. In fact, it’s a good bet that thousands of the viewers who tune in for next week’s crossover will have no idea that it was inspired by a pretty big comic book event from the late 1980s.

There’s one more weekend remaining until Halloween, which means there’s not a lot of time to lock down a Halloween costume. You can always stop by your nearest pop-up costume shop and likely find yourself fighting tooth and nail over S and XXL-sized costumes that have literally been passed over by everyone else in town…or you can listen to your friends at DC Collectibles, embrace the spirit of DIY, and put together the perfect DC Bombshells Mera costume.
You’d be hard pressed to find anyone with even a passing knowledge of DC Comics who doesn’t feel at least a little familiar with the Justice League of America. They are, after all, one of the most iconic and widely recognized super hero teams of all time. Their similarly named ancestor, the Justice Society of America, however, does not share the same notoriety.
In fact, there’s a decent chance this season of #DCTV might be the first time that some of you have heard of the JSA at all.
Don’t worry. If that’s the case, you are far from alone.
When it comes to things like Rebirth, Dark Knight III, Suicide Squad, #DCTV, Injustice 2, collectibles and cosplay, our fans have a lot to say. And now, once again, they have a place to say them.
