Your Shield against errant AI

Old Glory versus Robots That Eat Old People's Medicine for Fuel

I told you we'd get back to The Shield.

See, what you civilian-types don't know is that, among the Pentagon's vast warrens is a secret bunker where I have a small team of experts applying their skills to craft me (um, oh, and the nation, too) a veritable army of custom clix. Why? Well, let's just say that some pretty unlikely things happen when appropriations bills have to get passed at the last minute, particularly when I'm the one controlling the deciding pocket borough.

Do you remember you the cover of Pep 1? Well, my crack customizers at the Pentagon do, so they crafted this astonishing reproduction, in which The Shield cracks apart a rockem-sockem with just one punch. Have you ever seen a more beautiful custom? Makes an American proud.

The Shield resides on a re-purposed Bulleteer dial (because, you know, it's not like I'd every play the Bulleteer). He makes a great sidekick for Wonder Woman or Uncle Sam, and, all in all, is great cannon fodder to send out in the forefront of your Heroclix forces.

"Well.. hardly ever!"

Note to the Dove World Outreach Church

is NEVER a good idea.

ALMOST never.

Pep 33: Nazis LOVE their opera

Hey, look, Dusty's back!

And doing what a young boy should: hurling legs-spead into the face of evil. Missed ya, kiddo!

In true "Pep" fashion, this cover has glowing yellow skies and some awesome 3D effects. The teeny weeny Nazi toy soldier in the far background, Dusty and his black snuggies in the background, the ever-charming Hangman in the mid-ground, and in the foreground, giving what-for to the dental hygienically-challenged, is our hero, The Shield. But we'll get back to him later... .

Wait, just what is the Hangman doing? OMG, that's so unfair, attacking poor Jesse James as he's trying to get to the opera with his date. Hey... that's not Kat Von D!!! Well, whoever that poor woman is, I applaud Jesse for taking a sword to that overly constricting dress. "Stupid hangman," Jesse grunts, "capes --are so-- last year!"

P.S. Don't believe the hype: the whole country is NOT talking about Capt. Commando.
