Desktop Distractions: EP11 Mezco One12 Green Lantern (Jon Stewart)

Out of all the Mezco we’ve had the honor of playing with, this by far is one of our favorites! The small details in the figure like the lantern and how it lights up is hands down the coolest feature we’ve ever seen in a figure this scale. Mezco did not skimp out on the amount of accessories as well.  check out the vid for a closer look at this awesome green lantern figure.

Earthworm Jim is BACK… and he’s got a book!

So not only is Earthworm Jim comic to back with a new game for the new Intellivision Amico; we’ve got a graphic novel telling the origins of the character!
“Overview

Earthworm Jim has been a beloved character in video games since his launch in 1994, but due to the limitations of cartridge space, his epic story was never properly told. I’m not only the creator of Earthworm Jim, but I’ve spent the last 20 years making 18 graphic novels! I’ve spent a long time writing the epic of Earthworm Jim, and this first book will be on how Jim became Jim! Who made the super suit? Why is he launching cows?! I’m calling out to EWJ fans to help make this epic happen NOW!
