Preview: Sundowners from Dark Horse Comics

I am a big fan of Tim Seeley's so I can't wait to see the newest series from him called Sundowners with artist Jim Terry.  From the Dark Horse Comics Press Release:

Faster than lightning! Stronger than steel! Crazier than an outhouse rat? Enter the Sundowners—sworn to protect humanity from interdimensional invaders! But is the threat real, or is it all in their heads?

From Tim Seeley (Revival, Hack/Slash, The Occultist)!
A dark look at the thin line between heroism and insanity!

X-Men: Days of Future Past Minimates Box Set

Diamond Select Toys has released new photos of the Marvel Minimates "Days of Future Past" box set, and let me tell you, they look goooood. If you're a fan of minimates or DoFP, you're going to want these. 

Press Release:

"At this week's Comic Con International in San Diego, Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum will release their Marvel Minimates box set based on the classic X-Men comic storyline, "Days of Future Past." Published in Uncanny X-Men #141 and 142, the story showed a grim future where mutants were second-class citizens that had been largely exterminated by giant Sentinels, and it became one of the touchstones of the X-Men mythos.

The 4-pack of Minimates captures some of the storyline's most important characters – Future Wolverine, Future Kitty Pryde, Mystique and a Future Sentinel. Each stands approximately 2 inches tall with a variety of interchangeable parts and accessories, and we've taken some photos to show off all those parts! Check out the photos in the gallery, then come to booth 2607 on the show floor to pick up a set for $20, or check with your local retailer to see if they can order it in for you!"

Snoochie Boochies! 

Diamond Select Toys has announced the triumphant return of Bluntman and Chronic Minimates, and they're going to be SDCC exclusives

"Look, up in the sky, it's Bluntman and Chronic! The comic-book heroes created by director Kevin Smith are living the high life, with a variety of products coming out from Diamond Select Toys based on their appearances in "Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back." Now, they're getting a Comic-Con-exclusive 2-pack of Minimates mini-figures, only available through Toys "R" Us, and it's based on their comic book appearances!

With new facial expressions and paint schemes that reflect the costumes worn in their now-classic comic book mini-series, Bluntman and Chronic each stand 2 inches tall with 14 points of articulation and a variety of interchangeable parts. The two-pack comes packaged on a blister card, and will be available through the Entertainment Earth booth, #2343, at a price of $10. This set is guaranteed to move fast, so be sure to stop by early!"

I guess I'm going to have to find some friends to pick me up a pack or two.
