Daniel Clowes’ Death-Ray is not only getting the hardcover treatment this fall, he’s also getting three dimensions.
The creator’s site announced this weekend that the Oakland Toy Corp has designed a Death-Ray “action doll” that will be sold on Press Pop’s website beginning June 9. The 12″ doll is limited to 200 sets, costs $105 and comes with “the Ray Gun to erase all the people you would rather not see.” It will come in a box designed by Clowes.

Patrick Boivin, the filmmaker behind last spring’s Internet sensation “Iron Baby,” is back, this time with an incredible stop-motion short called “Black Widow Gone Wild” that asks the age-old question “What if Black Widow were War Machine?” Also, “What’s the quickest way to stop a Michael Jackson doll from dancing?” and “Should you tug on Superman’s cape?”

Comic-Con International aren’t the only ones having trouble selling things on the internet. Mattel’s action figure collector’s site MattyCollector.com released several new items today, including a Masters of the Universe figure, Superman and General Zod figures, and (the reason I was checking the site) a new Darkseid/Kalibak two-pack for their long-running Justice League Unlimited line.
Everything went on sale at 9 a.m. Pacific, which is when I hit the site and got this:
I did get in about eight minutes later, selected my item, went to checkout, and then started getting the “traffic management” page again before I could complete my transaction. Dang it. Around 9:17 a.m. I got back in, and it remembered where I was in the checkout process (which was nice … I figured I’d be starting from scratch). A few seconds later, my order was complete. Trying to go back to the home page, however, brought the holding page back up.
I guess today is good practice for next February, when the hotel process for San Diego kicks off.
(Update: And of course, after I post, the site doesn’t appear to be having any issues … and it doesn’t look like anything is sold out yet, so head over there quickly before it does).
Troops of Doom is a photo-comic featuring creator Kraig Furtado’s action figures. He has a bunch of them, and he has no problem mixing and matching figures from different universes. (He actually lists the names of the figures used in each comic in the archive.) Now he is coming up on the 300th strip, and that means an anniversary celebration that will include several “Become a Troop of Doom” contests, in which lucky readers can have a figure named after them and be incorporated into the comic. Considering how much of the time the figures spend taunting one another, it’s a dubious honor, but this is as good a time as any to go check it out. The comics are basically stand-alone gags (although sometimes Furtado riffs on a theme for a couple of days), so you can dip in anytime.
