Posted on December 8, 2011 by PopFunkEveryone 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 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 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 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 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! 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?
Posted on December 1, 2011 by PopFunkSupermodel met Superhero in the 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which aired Tuesday night on CBS. Of all the night's runway looks- which included passion, aquatic, ballet and more- the superhero segment stole our attention. Nerds across the country squirmed as some of the most beautiful women in the world gave meaning to the term Super Angels. Their outfits did not represent specific famed superheroes, but were merely inspired by the comic book characters. We definitely wouldn't have a problem with these girls fighting crime in next to bare ensembles. Check out the before and after images below, from concept sketch to final product. What do you guys think of the Victoria's Secret Supermodels as Superheroes? And because we just can't get enough of Adriana Lima (especially dressed as a superhero)...
