  • Our Favorite Holiday Comics From DC

    Posted on December 8, 2011 by PopFunk

    Everyone gets excited about this time of year, and it's no different here at Popfunk. Forget building snowmen. Leave the sled in the garage. Give us some sugar cookies, a blanket, and a stack of holiday comics and we'll be set straight through the New Year. Here are some of our faves from DC. DC Infinite Holiday Special DC Infinite Holiday Special In this holiday issue, Superman plans to impersonate Santa Claus to prove to a young boy that he is real... Until Batman convinces him there are more heroic acts to partake in. Though Superman agrees, he decides to deliver the presents to the boy anyway. And who should he see the young kids screaming for when he gets there? Batman as... Santa Claus. DC Universe Holiday Special 2008 DC Universe Holiday Special 2008 This one includes 10 stories with some of the DC's greatest superheroes. Holiday action from classic good guys like Superman, Supergirl, Batman & Robin, Green Lantern and more. The Night the Mob Stole X-Mas The Night the Mob Stole X-Mas Released in March 1979, this holiday comic features Batman and Plastic Man working together to defend Christmas against a crew of greedy mobsters. Christmas 'Round the World Christmas 'Round the World Superman spends this issue reuniting refugee children with their families and learns how other cultures celebrate Christmas in the process. Merry Christmas, Justice League of America... Now Die! Merry Christmas, Justice League of America...Now Die! Santa Claus joins the world's greatest superheroes in this holiday comic. Sounds innocent enough, right? But judging from the cover, it looks like the Justice League might regret its decision to let someone new into the group after all.... So those are a few of our favorite holiday comics. What about you? Which issues do you reach for to get your fill of crime-fighting, yule tide cheer?

  • Top 10 Comic Book Costumes

    Posted on September 21, 2011 by PopFunk

    By Mike Dutkewych For most of us, the opportunity to get decked out in bright colored spandex or beta-particle-powered exoskeleton comes but once a year: Halloween. And every Halloween, superhero (and super-villain) costumes are among the most popular for guys and girls alike. Here’s a look at our Top 10 Comic Book Costumes.

    Men's Costumes

    1. Superman What else can be said about the ever-popular Man of Steel? A superhero who never goes out of style. Superman costume 2. Batman Despite the runaway success of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight, and the mounting anticipation for the final installment of his trilogy, the Caped Crusader just can’t oust the Last Son of Krypton out of the top spot. Batman costume 3. Spiderman Thankfully, the radioactive spider is not a required accessory. 4. Captain America The First Avenger; the fourth most popular comic book costume. 5. Joker Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson both put their respective stamps on one of the greatest comic book villains of all-time. Cop some green hair dye, a ratty three-piece suit and a deck of cards, and you can too. 6. Green Lantern The Green Lantern’s power ring is one of the most powerful weapons in the universe. Wear responsibly. 7. Iron Man What would Tony Stark do? Besides create a powered exoskeleton to save his own life and eventually, the world, he’d probably cue up Black Sabbath before he entered a room. 8. Wolverine Recommended for fans of razor sharp claws, or any dude with a widow’s peak and big chops. Wolverine costume 9. Punisher The lazy man’s comic costume. All you need is a menacing skull t-shirt, and a thirst for revenge. Punisher costume 10. The Hulk Embrace your inner rage-fueled humanoid monster.

    Women's Costumes

    1. Wonder Woman The most iconic female superhero and the most popular women’s costume. Her Lasso of Truth is an accessory I’m sure most ladies wish they carried year ‘round. Wonder Woman costume 2. Catwoman Originally portrayed in the ‘40s wearing no disguise at all, the most memorable depictions of this villainess’ outfit has her donning a skintight leather catsuit and whip. 3. Supergirl As the Man o’ Steel’s super cousin, this beautiful Kyptonian is always a favorite costume for the girls. 4. Batgirl Driven career woman by day, fierce crime fighter by night. 5. Poison Ivy That girl is poison. Literally. Poison Ivy costume 6. Storm This reigning queen of Wakanda was one of Halle Berry’s more successful comic book endeavors. Especially compared to her cringe worthy work in the catsuit. Storm costume 7. Jean Grey Omega-level mutant, one of the original X-Men, and physical manifestation of Phoenix Force. Mess with this girl and she’ll rearrange your atoms. 8. Harley Quinn As girlfriend and accomplice of the Joker, sporting this seditious villainess’ harlequin jester suit will surely score you points for creativity. Harley Quinn costume 9. Rogue This X-Men mutant has the power to absorb the psyche, skills and physical characteristics of anyone she touches. Unless you also share that ability, you’ll have to settle for dressing like her. 10. Tank Girl This babe is known for driving a tank and dating a mutated kangaroo. Sounds like what my ex-girlfriend is up to now. Read More

    This post is brought to you by the Dark Knight T Shirt Collection at and
    Christopher Nolan sure knows how to make you wait. We were almost tempted to take out our old Batman figures and create a very conservatively budgeted trailer when a summer storm knocked out our power this week. But we're grateful that we didn't have to do the extra work. Finally for your viewing pleasure: The Dark Knight Rises Official Trailer.
