Rob's Room: Star Trek as written by George R.R. Martin

Star Trek if it were written by George R.R. Martin. (via Star Trek ships tumblr)
This made me laugh...

Wanted TPB: UltraForce Pre-Marvel

Writer: Gerard Jones
Artist: George Pérez
Publisher: Malibu Comics (1994) 
Includes: UltraForce #0-6 

History: The Ultraforce is a fictional superhero group that appears in comic books published by Malibu, and later Marvel, as well as an animated series produced by DIC. Their purpose was to protect the public and keep other Ultras from getting out of line. The membership consisted of various "ultras" (superheroes) in Malibu's Ultraverse, including the super-strong Prime; Topaz, warrior queen of Gwendor; Prototype, Ultra-Tech's armored spokesperson; the undead Ghoul, the last surviving member of the Exiles; Hardcase, one of the first public Ultras; and the mysterious Contrary, who organized the team and provided their technology.

Fun Fact: There was a short lived Ultraforce cartoon based on the first version of Ultraforce produced by DIC Entertainment that aired for 13 episodes. There was also an Ultraforce action figure line produced by Galoob.

Dork Note: I remember the comic, but barely recall the toy-line or the cartoon; which says it all. BUT it is George Pérez so come on Marvel!

DC & Mattel make a "WHAT THE?!"

Dork Note: I try really really hard not to be negative on this site, but from time to time I can't stop myself. This is one of those times! 

I have a 7 year old daughter and she LOVES DC heroes and I want to buy her girl-centric superhero stuff, BUT not this crap! This is some pathetic weak ass attempt to cash in and pander to the emerging superhero girl market. If DC & Mattel think they can just shovel some shit on to a shelf and girls and their dorky fathers will buy it - well guess what - NOPE!

DC & Mattel - what you should have done is made Super Best Friends Forever & Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld - toylines!
