Clinton Yaws’ Kings Of Atlantis OG Resin Skull Customs

KOA-Clinton-Yaws-Customs
 

Argonaut Resins and artist Clinton Yaws have teamed up to bring you the first Kings Of Atlantis OG Resin Skull Customs ever. Not many of these skulls were released in the original series a few years ago and there have been requests from new collectors for another run. Clinton Yaws brings his exciting paint style and dynamic concepts to adorn the first 3 pieces in this new release of regular clear tinted and glow in the dark customs.

Those three pieces are the red clear tint Easy Rider, the Blue Ringed Octopus painted over a plain clear tint, and the Dead Scrolls blue clear tint that glows in the dark. These new customs will be available to own in the Argonaut Resins online store today (Friday February 27th 2015) at Noon ET.

REVIEW: The Sea Ghost

Sea-Ghost-01

The Sea Ghost was first seen in Jay Piscopo’s The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli. Created by Piscopo, who both authored and illustrated the comic, The Sea Ghost was last seen in his very own comic book - The Sea Ghost #1: Sea Ghost in the Machine. The 36-page comic retails for $3.99 at your favorite comic shop.

Sea-Ghost-07

In addition to his return in The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli – Volume 3, which will be released in March 2015, The Sea Ghost is now available as a Mego-style action figure. That 8-inch tall action figure runs $20.00 and comes packaged in a plastic clamshell case. (Unfortunately…I wasn’t able to get a photo of that case before I ripped into it with my canine teeth).

The action figure is a good representation of The Sea Ghost character as shown in the comic book. He is a little bit limited by the Mego-ish body (I so dislike Mego wrists). For example, his feet resemble hooves in the comic, but the figure has regular human feet…albeit bleached white feet. Oh…and that white body is slightly visible underneath the stretched bodysuit. Thank goodness his name isn’t Anatomically Correct Sea Ghost.

Sea-Ghost-02

I was going to comment on the color of Sea Ghost’s face…and by writing this, I obviously am commenting on it. While it looks blue-green on the action figure – a lot greener than seen throughout the comic book - it actually does match up with the version of The Sea Ghost as presented on the rear of The Sea Ghost #1 comic.

Right Hand Of Doom Red Ale

DH-Rogue-Hellboy-Beer-2

To celebrate the 21st anniversary of Mike Mignola's legendary Hellboy character, Dark Horse Comics and Rogue Ales have collaborated to create the Right Hand Of Doom Red Ale, a limited edition beer that will be available online beginning on February 22nd 2015

“Rogue Ales approached us with the idea of creating a heavy-handed, supernatural red ale and we loved the idea of two independent, Portland based companies coming together to create something new that would be both fun for fans and worthy of the Mike Mignola’s creative legacy” said Mike Richardson, President of Dark Horse.

My question...why a Red Ale? When I think Hellboy...I think a chili infused beer.
