Only 7 shopping days left!

Filed under: Superheroes, Treats, pop culture — posted by Breakup Girl @ 11:15 am

Until the apocalypse? Fortunately, no, though that’s pretty much the story of Buffy’s life. Actually, January 19 is evidently Buffy Summers’ birthday* — and KabaLounge is throwing a virtual party.

Here’s the parlor game: If you could give Buffy Summers one birthday gift, what would it be?

Send them your creative idea for the perfect birthday gift for Buffy. One (1) winner will receive a page of original art from Season 8 drawn by Georges Jeanty!

See KabaLounge for details and official rules. Me, I’m thinking some nice scented candles.

* Coincidence/conspiracy: it’s also the release date for Buffy issue #40!

…Seattle carjacking!

No wonder Colin always sounds so tired.

Vote!

Filed under: News, Superheroes, issues — posted by Breakup Girl @ 10:14 am

According to this analysis, Superman is a moderate Republican, Wonder Woman a socialist, and Hulk “just want to be left alone” (libertarian). Whatever your leaning, please get out and vote. In a way, it’s your civilian superpower: please wield it (ideally, for good). If you haven’t already, learn about candidates, find your polling place, and remember, voting is a Breakup Girl issue. These folks may have a direct say in:

• how you learn about sex

• how you protect yourself if you have it

• education and law enforcement behind healthy relationships

• what you do with and how you’re able to take care of your body

• how much money you have to spend on dates (or “spa days” with numero uno)

• and, of course, whom you can marry

Please vote for candidates who make choices as sound as you do!

“When comics and catwalks collide”

Filed under: Superheroes, Treats, pop culture — posted by Breakup Girl @ 11:09 am

The New York Times reports today on the ladyfashions that lit up the most recent ComicCon: “Visitors were garbed as their favorite cartoon heroines, an outlandish cast of characters that varied from Wonder Woman to the violet-haired Faye of ‘Cowboy Bebop,’ the Japanese manga and anime series, to pink crinoline-clad Lolitas that were candy-coated variations on the brooding goth originals who strut their style on Tokyo’s streets.” The whole piece is not only great fun, but also a major Halloween costume idea delivery system. The only thing that bummed me out (not the article’s fault): the frequent descriptions of Wonder Woman’s costume as inspiration. The old Wonder Woman. Le sigh.

The OTHER Spider-Man sings!

Andrew Garfield, the great red-and-blue hope for continuing the Spider-Man movie franchise, sings the Bed Intruder Song (!) on a press junket for Never Let Me Go.

Spider-Man sings!

Filed under: Superheroes — posted by Chris @ 9:32 am

Good Morning America gave us our first look at the musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark on Friday. There were interviews with Bono and The Edge, as well as Julie Taymor, and lead Reeve Carney sang “Boy Falls From the Sky” which you can watch below.

Not as catchy as the 1967 Spider-Man theme, or the Electric Company Spider-Man theme, but we’re still taking a wait-and-see approach. For pictures of the Taymor-ized Green Goblin and the musical’s new villain, Swiss Miss, check out this SuperHeroHype post.

HULK SMASH WEDDING-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX

Filed under: News, Superheroes, Treats — posted by Breakup Girl @ 5:31 am

Chelsea who? The wedding of the universe recently took place in England. Something old, something new, something super! (Possibly most awesome:  bridesmaids = Powerpuff Girls.) Think they jetted off to Sandals in the bride’s invisible plane?

Honestly, it’s almost as good as this.

Wonder Woman’s Wear Daily

Nikki Finke hates it. I think she’ll at least be less chilly. How do you feel about the original Glamazon’s new outfit? Let us know in the comments.
