Check Out These Awesome Mechs as they Terrorize Polish People

Just a heads-up: This post is the first of a two-part series I’m calling “Historical Mecha-Fiction Tuesday,” because I’m bad at this.

Part One of Historical Mecha-Fiction Tuesday comprises a series of totally badass digital paintings by Jakob Rozalski. The series is called “1920+,” because it shows what historical Polish villages would look like with mechs in them and because he’s much better than me at titling his work.

Regardless of what the series is called, this stuff just looks really gosh-damn cool (and, I might add, very convincing). Meet me after the jump for a few more. The last one is so freakin’ cool. I want a movie yesterday.

The Shining and Psycho Reimagined

Published by under Images,Movies

shining.seps

Artist Bryan Ewing had some fun with the lead villains of The Shining and Psycho in these Japanese-inspired poster remakes. I believe each are available for purchase here somewhere, for a limited time.

Someday I’m going to get really good at art and sell prints ALL the time. Not just in little day-long windows or 50-run prints. Someday.

Check out the Psycho version below: Continue Reading »

Mickthulhu Mouse

Someday I’m actually going to have to read whatever Lovecraft series features Cthulhu so I can stop thinking of him as “that one tentacle monster Hollywood hasn’t dared to touch yet.”

In any case, this is actually a t-shirt you can buy that demonstrates your love of both sci-fi and Disney, two things that don’t often go together unless we’re talking about Wall-E and superheroes.

Get it here.

Classic Superhero Pin-Ups

Published by under Comics,Images

classic_superhero_pinups_01

Artist Stephen Langmead has made it to the site once or twice, I believe, but now he’s back with a rather excellent batch of superhero pin-ups, set back in time from the ’40s to the ’60s.

Classic costumes, and classy ladies, and a fair amount of…pointiness in some of these costumes. Hey, it was the style back then!

Check out the full collection for yourself above, and see more of Langmead’s excellent work on his site here. Continue Reading »

AKIIIIIIIIIRAAAAAAAAA!

Words can’t express just how much I’m not looking forward to the inevitable live action reboot of Akira, the ridiculously amazing anime that will undoubtedly lose much of its charm when it’s starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Keanu Reeves or whoever the hell else they wrangle for the film.

I’m not really an anime person, yet Akria remains one of my all time favorites, which hardly makes me cool, I know. It’s like saying your favorite movie of the year is whatever wins Best Picture. But whatever, the fact that Akira is fantastic not really up for debate.

The art above is from Joshua Budich, who is about to have a solo anime art show full of awesome pieces like this.

Adventure Time Turned Into Every Type of Fandom

Published by under Images,Movies

p1

Artists  Joe Hogan and Mike Vasquez have taken their love of Adventure Time, and integrated into their love of well, everything else. They’ve combined the wacky animated show with practically every pop culture franchise that has a major fanbase.

Yes, that’s Final Fantasy VII above, but below you’ll find Batman, Star Wars, Smash Bros., Zelda, Spider-Man, The Walking Dead, Guardians of the Galaxy, and of course, Disney Princesses. Check out the entire series, and be very upset if they missed your favorite fandom. Continue Reading »

Just Blow On It

Published by under Images,Video Games

I don’t think there’s a gamer among us that at one point, hasn’t fixed a video game cartridge by blowing on it at one point or another. What do you mean your first system was the original disc-using PlayStation? How old are you? How old am I? Ahh damnit. Nostalgia strikes again.

In any case, for us old geysers out there, Jake Murray has immortalized the moment of your first brush with tech support with this excellent piece above. Granted, I am young enough where the first system I did this on was a SEGA Genesis, and not an NES, but still. Lovely piece.

Awesome Conceptual Toys From Evil Corp

Published by under Images,Movies

These toys by Evil Corp are so cool, and yet featuring them makes me so sad, because none of them are actually real, it turns out. They’re vinyl concepts for actual toys, but lacking the license, they’ll forever exist only as 2D images, rather than 3D desk ornaments. And it would be quite a lot of licenses to acquire, given how diverse the subjects are.

There are more than a few from Star Wars here, but I really like the ones from The Shining (above) and Evil Dead. Even if they are concepts, I’d love to see more of them. Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Lil’ Shepard

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Video Games

I’m not sure if eight year olds actually play Mass Effect, as I think they’re all into Skylanders and Minecraft and what not, but at least one kid knows what’s up. Taken ahead of the Pittsburgh Comicon costume contest, this little bro is looking fresh in his padded N7 armor. Like, how could he not win? That expression alone makes the costume.

Man, when I was a kid I put on a red shirt, blue overalls and stuck brown paper to my face so I could be Mario for Halloween. My, how times have changed.

Adventure Time Gets Badass-ified

Published by under Images,Television

tumblr_navws7Xt5Z1qg8i80o1_1280

Artist Shillustration has gone through and done some makeovers of all your favorite Adventure Time characters, given them tattoos, piercings, weapons and bad attitudes. It would obviously be a very different show if these remakes were implemented, but Adventure Time is such a random show, I can’t even say this will never happen.

The rest are below, though I can’t even feature the remakes of the girls, because they’re rather NSFW. Those can be seen here, because I know after that description you’re going to be curious. Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Has Science Gone Too Far?

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Video Games

scyther_pokemon_cosplay01

Why yes, you ARE looking at sexy Scyther cosplay, a Pokemon that I never thought I’d see in this format. And honestly, it’s really damn good! The concept was executed by Termina Cosplay, who had the fortitude to go where no other Pokemon cosplayer had gone before. Though given that this is the internet, I suppose I’m about to be linked to like 20 other sexy Scyther costumes I’ve somehow missed over the years.

There are many more photos in the series for you to check out below, which show just how cool this costume actually is. You can also think of her as “badass Tinkerbell” too if that helps, which was actually my first thought when I saw this originally. Continue Reading »
