Comicbook superheroes are due to get the US Postal Service stamp of approval. Stamp, gettit. Groan.
Here comes the U.S. Postal Service's first stamp pane honoring comic book super heroes.
Half of the pane of 20 stamps are portraits of: Aquaman, Batman, the Flash, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Hawkman, Plastic Man, Supergirl, Superman and Wonder Woman. The other 10 stamps depict covers of individual comic books devoted to each super hero.
DC Comics President and Publisher Paul Levitz and various comic book artists will participate in the ceremony, followed by a panel discussion on the historical and cultural legacy of DC Comics Super Heroes.
The stamps will be available in San Diego beginning July 20th 2006 and USA-wide the next day.
