Last week was a little light on reviews, so it seems fitting we kick things into high gear this week with Reviewapalooza II! Our second foray into the mad world of double reviews will feature over a dozen figures between today & Saturday. Let’s kick off with Club Infinite Earths Starman!
S.T.R.I.P.E. Week rolls on, but today I’m jumping ahead, oh… a few decades to a young member of the modern JSA. One of the things I enjoyed most about the late 90s DC offerings was the return of the Justice Society of America and its newest member Courtney Whitmore, a.k.a. Stargirl.
Even though our Requests article isn’t on a regular basis this year, we still want to dust it off now and again to give the companines ideas for figures fans might like to see.
