Quantcast

On April 16 (this Tuesday), Warner Bros. and Netherworld Games will release INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US, an epic fighting game set in the world of DC Comics. I've previously covered the game here on The Rock Father, and now comes news that Watertower Music will be releasing INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US - THE ALBUM (pre-order on iTunes), a companion to the game and it's original cinematic score (also up for pre-order on iTunes), available on launch day. Featuring tracks from AWOLNATION, RISE AGAINST, DEPECHE MODE, and more, full details on the record can be viewed below, complete with preview tracks...

FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is May 4th this year (also STAR WARS Day!), and while we didn't have the greatest experience at last year's Free Comic Book Day, I still get excited about a day devoted to sharing a love of comics with a new generation of readers. Now, my favorite comic book company has hit The Rock Father with news that their 2013 Free Comic Book Day offerings are being headlined by my all-time favorite hero...

Holy Action Figure Awesome, Batman! After previously-covering the offerings from NECA and the world of BARBIE based on the classic 1966 BATMAN television series (which until recently was unavailable for licensing), now comes what is undoubtedly the most-anticipated '66-based line of the bunch: The BATMAN CLASSICS 1966 TV Series Action Figures from MATTEL. The folks at Entertainment Earth just hit The Rock Father with full details on the first waves of these 6-inch pieces of cool, all of which are now up for pre-order. Check out the details below and pay close attention to detail...

I'm really kind of disturbed that I didn't know about this. Announced over a year ago... countless videos uploaded to YouTube (including some with Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes) racking up more than 12,000,000 plays... and starring my two favorite superheroes: SUPERMAN and BATMAN. How did I not find out about INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US until tonight? The video game hits all the major consoles (XBOX 360, Playstation 3, Wii U) next month, and looks great.

The floodgates are really open for merchandise based on the classic, 1966 BATMAN television series now that the rights have been released and assigned to licensors. NECA has a nice piece coming out soon, and the assortment of action figures coming to MattyCollector looks phenomenal. Now comes the BARBIE COLLECTOR DOLLS for BATMAN and CATWOMAN. Both went up for pre-order today at Entertainment Earth, and full details can be found below.

Super! DC Comics Underwear for Girls arrives...

Updated - April 14, 2015: Over two years after writing this story, Fruit of the Loom no longer has the license to manufacture the DC Comics Girls' Briefs/Underwear. There is a new assortment at retail now that is made by HandCraft Manufacturing, available at Amazon.

Changing perception and "norms" has been a big deal in the realm of Dad Bloggers lately, and it certainly appears that people and brands are listening. Just four months after Tom Burns posted an article over at 8BitDad discussing "Gender Disparity in Kids' Character Undies" (he shopped the Boys aisle at Target for his daughter) Fruit of the Loom has released a 7-Pack of DC Comics Girls' Briefs. Based around BATGIRL SUPERGIRL, and WONDER WOMAN,  ours just arrived here at Rock Father HQ yesterday.
