Superman vs. Muhammad Ali addendum

In today's review of Superman vs. Muhammad Ali, we told you that when the comic came out, Ali was no longer the champion. Neal Adams only accepted the job on the book if he could be guaranteed no deadlines, so he took his sweet time drawing it. Marvel felt okay taking a swipe.

In Amazing Spider-Man #186, Spider-Man has just been cleared in the death of Captain Stacey, so public and media opinion of him has swung to the positive. While holding a press conference and fielding endorsement offers, the following happens:

The TV bit is funny, because CBS would soon cancel both the live-action Spider-Man and Wonder Woman shows in favor of The Incredible Hulk. But what matters is the jab at DC: the woman pitching the idea to him is Jenette Khan, publisher/EIC of DC Comics. You can also find her on the SvMA cover, looking much the same as she does here.

Richard the Warlock

The figure in this Kickstarter is based on the webcomic Looking for Group, and the figure is done in GI Joe scale. The packaging and accessories look quite cool, as well.

And if the price looks a little high, remember that it's in Canadian Fun Bux™©, not real money, so it's a bit cheaper than it seems. And you get a bunch of extras with every order!
