Diamond’s Marvel Select Gets Honky-Venom
Or Anti-Venom. Or Venom-Honky. Whatever the hell the white Venom is called. The figure is due from Diamond in February of next year, so you’ll have plenty of time to figure out his name as he appears in the new Spider-man arc. I’m not nearly as worried about his name as the fact that the spider-logo on his chest is inverted, meaning it’s staring directly at his junk. It’s how you know he’s evil. (Via Action-Figure)
About The Author
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
