Millie the Model Revived

While searching the internet I came across an interesting item. It showed that Marvel almost revived Millie the Model in 1997. For more info you can go to my other site, Millie the Model.

Save the Aquaman Hoodie

Over at Aquaman Rob has been talking about the above Aquaman Hoodie. The company stopped production on it as they didn't have enough pre-orders as they needed between 150-200. Well Rob's Aquaman site directs you to It's A Cold Day in Atlantis. There you can indicate if you want to pre-order the hoodie and therefore save the coat.

Videos of the Week: Weird Al with My Bologna and The Knack with My Sharona

I actually wanted to only showcase the Weird Al song but some may not get it without hearing the real song that he is spoofing. So here are Weird Al with My Bologna and the Knack with My Sharona. By the way the Weird Al video is an amateur video but it is pretty funny.
First is The Knack with a clip from the film Reality Bites.

Next is the amateur video with the Weird Al version of the song.

Barry Allen's Coming Back Tonight!

Have you heard the news?
It's all over town!
If you ain't heard it boy you better sit down!
Grab a hold of something and hold on tight!
Barry Allen's coming back tonight!
All the villains are getting ready to fight!
Cause Barry Allen's coming back tonight!

He was sad!
DC got mad!
But now DC says that it's all right!
All the villains are getting ready to fight!
Cause Barry Allen's coming back tonight!

Ok so he isn't coming back tonight but the parody of the Bob Seger song wouldn't have made sense without saying tonight. Actually according to what I read on Comic Coverage who got his info from Barry will be brought back next year in a mini-series called The Flash:Rebirth and written by Geoff Johns with art by Ethan Van Sciver.
I, and many other fans at the time, hated it when Flash was killed off in Crisis on Infinite Earths. Supergirls death in that series made the news but to me the really sad news was Barry Allen died. He did die a heroic death as all would have died if he had not sacrificed himself. I hope his rebirth doesn't detract from that but even if it does I am happy. I read Flash for years so I kind of grew up with him. To me I will be reunited with an old friend. In the interview with the creators over at they say they want to make Flash a pillar of the DC Universe. That strikes me as odd because I always thought he was one.
While Wally West was a good Flash he never became a pillar of society like Barry Allen did. In fact Wally was closer to that ideal as Kid Flash more then when he became the Flash.
Still Flash fans can rejoice. The greatest of the Flashes is soon to return. Barry Allen is coming back! I hope he decides to stay.
