Hallmark Introduces New Line of Plushies Featuring Characters from DC Comics, Marvel, Star Wars and More

Wonder Woman always comes to the rescue! Check her out in Part One of a series of shorts starring Hallmark's itty bittys
Hallmark has picked some of the most iconic characters from film, comics and television and given them a new look that’s totally sweet and unique. Their small stature makes them perfect for collecting and just right for pairing with a greeting card or stashing in a backpack, holiday stocking or Easter basket.

The creation of itty bittys all started with a doodle during a brainstorm. Illustrator Adan Chang sketched a quick interpretation of what popular characters could look like if they were just a wee bit “itty bittier.” 

Soon, Adan’s simple-but-fresh portrayal of popular licensed characters inspired an entire collection that continues to grow. Adan has spent most of his nine years at Hallmark bringing plush characters to life. When he’s not figuring out how to give a snowman legs or make a porcupine look huggable, Adan enjoys cooking, playing the guitar and hanging out with other people’s pets

DC Comics
You could just snag your favorite, but every comic book fan knows DC Comics Super Heroes are even more powerful when they’re together. Wonder Woman, Superman™, Batman™ and The Flash will create the ultimate crime-fighting team within your itty bitty collection.

Marvel
Marvel fans will love to add this group of itty bittys to their collection. The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America and Spider-Man may be small but they are still mighty.

Star Wars™ itty bittys
Star Wars fans will love this group of itty bittys. Treat them to Yoda™ and Chewbacca™ along with the Han Solo™ and Princess Leia™ set. These characters are a must for any Star Wars collection.

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

KICKSTARTER SPOTLIGHT: 'WHITE' The Sequel to the Acclaimed Graphic Novel BLACK

How does America react when only black people have superpowers? In the sure-to-be-controversial six-part comic book series WHITE, co-creators Kwanza Osajyefo and Tim Smith 3, Inkpot-Award winning artist Jamal Igle, and cover artist Khary Randolph reunite for the sequel to their acclaimed graphic novel and Kickstarter sensation, BLACK.



“How does a nation struggling with a history of racial inequality cope in a world where only black people have superpowers?” said Kwanza Osajyefo. “Our story asks: In a time of supposed inclusion and diversity, how far will those in charge push back to retain the status quo?”

In WHITE, Theodore Mann, whose family exploited empowered blacks for centuries, is now President of the United States. Mann’s administration has exacted controversial measures to deal with the empowered he’s deemed terrorists and is stoking national tensions to win public support for Mann First, a cybernetically-augmented soldier program. The main person standing in the President’s …

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet. He's also had a love of super-heroes and comic books.
