DC 75 Poster - 2010

Courtesy F.O.A.M.er Brent Almond is a scan of the huge-o "DC 75" poster that comes with the Music of DC Comics CD released a few weeks ago (click the image to see a bigger version). Nice to see Aquaman on the front lines!

Brent also scanned the CD tray, which is another multi-character image:
(click to see everybody!)

He also has this to say about the CD itself: "The interior of the CD book also lists all the tracks are available as ringtones! Unfortunately, they don't work on iPhones, so if a generous Shrine member wants to convert the Aquaman ringtone into a format that iPhone users can use, I would be eternally grateful!"

Me, too. Thanks for the scans Brent!

A few weeks after Brent sent me these scans, I was having a discussion about the CD with F.O.A.M.er Shag Matthews and Walter from Boosterrific.com, and Shag noticed something interesting about the the art in the CD tray--which I assumed was the same group shot used as a print ad for WB's licensing department, posted here a few months ago:
If you look closely, you can see that Aquaman--and only Aquaman--has been redrawn. In the original ad directly above, his costume looks like the one he has in Brightest Day, where his tunic is goes all the way up his neck. But in the piece used for the CD tray, his tunic is more of the traditional variety.

In addition, some folks have been moved around (Booster Gold behind Aquaman instead of Mr. Terrific, for example)--the kind of thing I never would have noticed had Shag not pointed it out. Weird!

All very cool stuff! I think they could have calmed Starfire's hair down, maybe, and fit in Mera or Tempest? :)

And an Aquaman ringtone??? Is it on the cd or available somewhere else?

Dynomite! I didn't realize the CD came with a poster - I haven't been able to find it in regular CD stores.

Joe Slab said...

Awesome and random!

Barbara Gordon Batgirl?

Jemm Son of Saturn?

Starman who has not been used in over decade?

But the Sea King does show up so its all good!

For the Aquaman ringtone:
Text "DC75TH20" to 30303

If someone can figure out how to convert it into an iPhone-friendly format, let us know!

Uhhh, why do they have a male Dove there? He's dead.

You can't fit everyone on these things, but a few strange omissions:

Red Tornado
Plastic Man
Elongated Man
Adam Strange
Black Lightning
Mr. Miracle

Especially compared to some of the heroes who ARE there (let alone villains - Steppenwolf?):

the aforementioned Jemm
Citizen Steel (or whichever Steel that is)

Rob - Thanks for the shout-out. I can only guess Warner Bros wanted to push the "traditional" Aquaman look. Not sure a neckline was all that important.

Here is a link to my own write-up.
