Epic Finds: Spider-Woman Stamp



Oh, Spider-Woman, how I love thee!

     Just a quick blurb on my recent find: Personally, I think Spider-Woman is the hottest of all the Marvel and DC heroines. No one comes close (not even Batgirl) [*FYI, This will be both Terry's first and last post- The Editor*]. I've spent the past few years collecting everything I can get my hands on and over the weekend, I found this stamp. More details and pictures after the break.....



DC Super Heroes


At the 2007 Comic-Con in San Diego, the USPS issued a colorful pane of 20 stamps depicting Marvel Comics superheros. This was the second release of comic book characters on a stamp. The first was in 2006 at Comic-Con depicting DC superheros. The DC pane (top) includes Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, Batman & Robin, The Flash, Plastic Man, Aquaman, Supergirl, and Hawkman & Hawkgirl. The Marvel pane (bottom) includes Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, Sub-Mariner, The Thing, Captain America, Silver Surfer, Spider-Woman, Iron Man, Electra, and Wolverine. Below the characters are their correlating comic book covers. On the back of each stamp is information about the artwork and character.

I've never been a stamp collector, but I just couldn't pass this up. I figured it would go great with my collection. As the holiday's approach, I'm sure I'll have many other Spider-Woman items to talk about.

Also, if you're a comic lover like myself, check out this cool Etsy shop called ComicCrafts where you can pick up comic themed bookmarks and magnets.

  2. Very special thanks to Terry for jumping in and helping out here at ThEpic Review! He's an old and dear friend (we've spent many a late nights making toy runs all across middle Tennessee) and I'm glad to have him on-board our site.

    And Batgirl could take Spider-Woman. Anytime, anywhere.
