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.”
