The Retcon Punchers spend an awful lot of time looking for ways to celebrate our nerdy obsessions. This means a lot of time sunk into scouring Etsy, Deviant Art, Think Geek or whatever. Sometimes we see things so great we just have to share them… and then clutch them fiercely to our collective chest. Throw it in The Vault.

Who Would Love This: Fans of vintage posters and signage, lovers of secret nerd art, trapeze aficionados
I have obviously browsed the DC Comics official store on occasion, and while I’ve always found things I like I have never been blown away by an item that I feel I need to have. They have recently expanded their line of high-quality prints, however, and these change everything. Once again, I have found the kinds of posters that, from afar, don’t look like anything other than faux-vintage hipster wall art. Look again and you’ll see it’s actually faux-vintage hipster nerdy wall art, and I eat that shit up. I think the Flying Graysons poster here might be the best, and would look great with the Beware Crime Alley propaganda poster, but the Kandor, Themyscira, and Coast City travel posters would look pretty sharp together, too.
Graysons are kinda tempting fate with the “Flight of Death” title… hope they make it out of this one okay.
I’m sure they’ll be fine; what could go wrong?
That’s a good point – I mean, they’re professionals, right?
Exactly. I’m sure they’re prepared for any trapeze-related contingency.
That Batman one we saw with his crazy eye and the Court of the Owls’ maze was pretty cool, but I don’t think I would want it on my wall.
