shazam-feat

It’s not a radical idea to say that superhero comics should be for children, but it seems an increasingly radical idea in a time where a Marvel comic recently had Hawkeye shoot Bruce Banner through the eyeball. All-ages comics at the Big Two are the exception, not the rule. Are the demands of continuity the reason why? Does "everything should fit together" inevitably create, for lack of a better term, "tone bleed"?

Last year, Sideshow unveiled its sixth-scale Punisher figure, and Hasbro has a new Walgreen's exclusive, Jim Lee-era Punisher on the way for Marvel Legends. As nice as they are, Mezco just might have everyone beat with the latest addition to the One:12 Collective.
