Justice League International Annual 1

Today, Peter and Patrick are discussing Justice League International Annual 1, originally released August 29th, 2012.

Peter: With any reboot, world-building is near the top of the priority list. If you’re starting from scratch, you have to start with something and move on from there. Justice League International is a series that has become central to the future of the Justice League family of books. While this Annual will be the last issue bearing the JLI banner, I doubt this is the last we will see of these characters, many of whom have other books to appear in. This is a glimpse of the future of the Justice League family, and even if you haven’t read the 12 issues of Justice League International, the Annual is definitely worth the read.

The Vault – Superhero Makeup Looks

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.

Website: Makeup By Siryn

Who Would Love This: Comic geeks, makeup geeks, looking awesome geeks

Price: NA

This Vault is a little different from most; there’s no product for sale. But I am so in love with Siryn’s comic-themed makeup looks, I had to feature her here. This is her Ice themed look (remember Ice, Guy Gardner’s ladyfriend?), and I adore it. It’s maybe a little much for everyday wear, but it’s such a great way to capture a character without doing a full costume; how fun would it be to do a look like this to go out dancing? She’s done a ton of different hero looks, as well as makeup reviews and the like.  My favorite look has got to be Wonder Woman; it’s pretty, I can see the influence, and it’s basic enough that I could potentially wear this to work. Time to find me some golden eye-liner.
