Hulk toys at Burger King!
On Thursday a customer told me about the Hulk movie promotion at Burger King, so that evening I took a spin over and picked up two of the toys in the series. I was told the promotion just began (on Monday, I believe), so check it out quick before they're gone. There will be two new toys each week for three weeks for a total of six toys. To see what the toys look like, check out the Burger King website. Also, don't forget to pick up Burger King's Kids Club magazine, Adventures vol 19 issue #6, which focuses on the Hulk.

Hulk goodies at 7-Eleven!
On Sunday evening I took a trip to 7-Eleven. The heat was making me melt, so I drove on over to get an ice cream fix, and lo! I found an assortment of Incredible Hulk Movie goodies awaiting me! They're selling three different Hulk Slurpee cups ($1.99 each) and three different Hulk Slurpee straws ($1.49 each)(two different Hulk ones and one Abomination one). There's also a special Big Gulp cup ($1.09) with the Hulk logo on it that has The Incredible Gulp printed on the other side. And there's an exclusive 7-Eleven Hulk comic book, a reprint of the Incredible Hulk #25 (April 2001) that they're selling for $4.99. It has a new cover. They also have an assortment of other Hulk merchandise for sale, although the other items don't look to be 7-Eleven exclusives. I was told the Slurpees just went on sale a few days ago, so don't delay before they sell out! --Nick

Let me know what you think.

Iron Man toys at Burger King!
Last night I spotted an Iron Man Kids Meal toy promotion at Burger King. They have a series of six toys to be released two at a time each week, apparently starting on Monday, April 21st. Plus their Adventures magazine features Iron Man, so be sure to pick up a copy of that too.
Iron Man Slurpee cups at 7-Eleven
And keep in mind that 7-Eleven has an Iron Man promotion going on as well. They have a series of four different Slurpee cups, three different Iron Man straws, and a Slurpee mug shaped like Iron Man's head that's really cool.
I love collecting all of these comic book related promotions, so I'll try to post them here for other folks to see. And let me know if you see anything out and about at a fast food joint or grocer or wherever, and I'll pass it along. --Nick

Kick-Ass #2 doesn't ship! Because of an errror on the publisher's part, no copies of Kick-Ass #2 were shipped to the warehouse serving our region of the country. The situation is being addressed and copies will now arrive on Wed., April 9th. We did, however, get copies of the #1 2nd Ptg Romita Jr. Variant edition, and highly recommend this series. It does, indeed, kick ass!

Jeph Loeb announced at Friday's Wizard World Los Angeles convention that issues #7, 8 and 9 of the Hulk will feature two 11-page stories harkening back to the days that the Hulk shared the Tales to Astonish title with the Sub-Mariner. Arthur Adams will draw the lead Hulk feature, with the Hulk squaring off against Wendigos, while Frank Cho will illustrate the backup story of the She-Hulk facing down the Red Hulk.
Loeb also announced that legendary Hulk artist Herb Trimpe will be contributing to the King-Sized Hulk one shot.
Marvel Marketing Manager Jim McCann mentioned a new Sub-Mariner Marvel Knights mini series by Peter Milligan and Essad Ribic. No release date announced.
Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale are working on a new mini series entitled Captain America: White, which will take place in 1941. "It's going to be one particular mission that defines who the characters were." Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos will appear as well. "We're going to deal with a lot of Steve's relationship with Nick, and it's going to echo a lot with what goes on in present day."
There will also be an Ultimatum
mini series by Loeb and David Finch, leading out of the events
of Ultimate Origins by Brian Michael Bendis and Butch

DC Comics announces the return of their Manhunter series beginning in June. Perhaps most amazing of all, the series will pick up where the old numbering left off with #31! The series has a loyal following, and all thirty previous issues are still in print in four trade paperback volumes (and always kept in stock at Dreamscape Comics!).
A new publisher enters the scene in July.
Comics will publish cohesive continuity series of the Chimaer Hero
Universe with titles including Consortium of Justice, Wargod, Lonebow,
Blaze Anderson: Cosmonaut!, Titus, The Byzantine and Hellhounds.
Check out the company's official website here.

Shocking and sad news today. Legendary Rocketeer artist Dave Stevens died yesterday as a result of complications of leukemia. Born on July 29th, 1955, he was only 52 years old. Stevens was the creator and artist on the acclaimed Rocketeer series. A shame to lose such an immensely talent man. You can read Mark Evanier's obituary at his POV website.
