Turbulence by Samit Basu

turbulenceWhat if you found yourself with amazing superhuman powers suddenly and the ability to change lives and the world around you?  What you would do?  These are the many questions asked by passengers of Flight BA142 from London to Delhi as each passenger mysteriously gains a superhuman ability.


“We want to form a real-world Justice League – of India,” Aman says.

These are some pretty cool custom figures of Wolverine done by J. Arturo Ramirez Romero. You can’t buy them just yet, you need to email him and if there are enough interest, he might put it into production. I would love to see him do the whole X-Men group or the entire Avengers team since they’re really hot items right now.  Or maybe even Bruce Lee! Because, you know, he was DA MAN.

Uniqlo & Marvel Comics Collab

Sexy Marvel tees – because it’s Uniqlo!

A friend of mine was recently in Hong Kong for vacation and stopped over @ the Uniqlo store and got me this fresh collab tee by Uniqlo and Marvel Comics.  The tee is of course %100 cotton and reprints classic comic covers from Marvel comics.  Remember when comics were .40 cents!  In my day it was .75 cents and I’m really dating myself here.  But if you are in Asia – make sure you stop by the Uniqlo stores for these cool collab tees.

Check it out:  Uniqlo Jpn or Uniqlo USA
