DC Comics Characters on US Stamps in 2006
Entertainment: Very cool and being a bit of a comic geek, I will buy a sheet or 5, Via Newsrama. But what is Plastic Man doing on there?
|Official announcement came today that the comic book publisher that put “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” on the map will get a nod from the US Post Office next year, when DC Comics characters get their own postage stamps, this according to a USPS release listing the various stamp designs coming in 2006. “Our 2006 program commemorates a wide range of diverse American icons with something that will appeal to everyone,'' Postmaster General John E. Potter said in announcing the planned designs. One touch of reality though – the new stamps of 2006 will cost 39 cents, as the postal rate increases on January 8th. The Post Office’s plans call for a set of 20 stamps featuring DC Comics characters. From the release, the list includes: “Superman, Wonder Woman, Plastic Man, Batman, Green Arrow and many more.”|
