The Vault – Retro Corps Recruitment Posters

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.

I have this thing for cool retro-style posters. I caught a glimpse of these when Shelby and I were at C2E2. They are really slick. I wish he had finished the whole set. The collector in me wants the whole set. That’s why I didn’t buy any at C2E2. (That, and I didn’t have a lot of money on me) These posters really capture what each Corps is about, and it gets the message across. Plus, they look fantastic. I especially like the worn/dog-eared effect. If Matt were to complete the set and add the rest of the posters in, and then maybe consider a package deal, I would be really happy. Or you could just buy your favorite, and keep it up in your weight room as inspiration for all the hard work you are doing.

Have you ever found yourself trying to discuss what a given comic book character is capable of, only to discover you don’t have the appropriate vocabulary? I mean, what are you supposed to call what Mera can do? PONDER NO LONGER. This handy chart lists the abilities (supernatural or otherwise) of over 300 characters from Marvel and DC Comics. Some of it is a little simplified (Wolverine’s listed power is “claws”) and some of it is out-of-date (like Captain Cold doesn’t only have an ice-gun anymore), but it’s still an impressively nerdy graphic display. Click on the image above and go to the website to see close up and have all your power-related questions answered!

We all need data storage, right? SURE YOU DO! Yeah cloud storage and Drop Boxes and web-based email account may render the need for physical data storage totally obsolete, but in the meantime, let’s make sure our flash drives look like DC superheros. Look how big their heads are! That implies so much storage potential. Also, hilariously, there isn’t one for The Flash. Whu?

My love for secret nerd art is well documented. No one should be surprised that I like these. NO ONE. These prints look like old concert posters whose colors have run in the rain, or slapdash grafitti: they’re old, messy, and kind of dirty-looking. The artist, who goes by Harshness on Etsy, has a ton of very minimalist and graphically striking posters, any of which I would love. This full set of Justice League posters is probably my favorite, although he has a X-Men set that is also awesome. Plus, apparently he’s having a buy one, get one sale right now! So, if you don’t really have the wall space for the whole League, you can get Superman and Batman for the low low price of Superman alone! What a deal!
