"Bug Hunt."






Man, I need a Predator figure...I splurged this weekend on the Jungle Extraction Dutch figure from NECA, and it's a right proper figure! Great articulation, paint, and sculpt; for about the same price as a Marvel Legend or DCUC figure--maybe cheaper! Absolutely worth picking up.

The bit about the animals on Rann being confused by bright colors, is from Grant Morrison's story in the DC Comics Presents: Mystery in Space issue. I don't know if Rann has shown up in the New 52 yet, but I'm kind of worried it's filled with aliens and predators like, well, Aliens and Predators; as opposed to the weird charm it used to have.

Oh fuck, I'm loving this one! Especially that last line about drunken rednecks blaming alien abductions for their private man-cuddle time;)

Personally, I think Adam Strange would do fine against Predators and Aliens, considering all the menaces he's faced over the years, but it would be an interesting fight that one.
Best use of NU52 Hawkman in skit yet buddy!

I saw a review the other day of Adventures of Superman #12 (or something...) with Adam Strange needing Supes' help...go check that panel, that should've been the whole issue!

I didn't know that about Rann!

It's an important safety tip!...that, or the Rann Chamber of Commerce completely lied to Adam, yet he somehow refused to get eaten.

Saw it, and you're right. One and done. But still, seeing Adam Strange face down really built up, famous space monsters like Aliens and Predators definitely holds some appeal.
