Happy mail day!

Okay, this definitely confirms my geekdom, but I am just getting a huge kick out of looking on top of my monitor and seeing the Legion of Superheroes up there! I was a big comic book fan as a kid. In general I was a Marvel fan, but always had a fondness for that one DC book, the Legion of Superheroes. Maybe because they were supposed to be teenagers, maybe because of the very odd superpowers they came up with (Matter-Eater Lad?), maybe because there were so damn many of them.

These are tiny little figures, maybe 3 1/2" high, but the cool thing is that they are the originals--the ones I used to read about as a kid in the early to mid 70s. Phantom Girl with the great big letter "P" on the front of her costume--not even a stylized letter P, like Superman's S--this is just a plain old letter P. What were they thinking? The faces are flat with the features drawn on, so that they really do look a lot like the comic books images. I hope they continue making this series.
