Some Rather Fantastic Coffee Cup Art

Published by under Comics,Images

cup2

While this may not be quite as impressive as literally making art out of coffee itself, which some barristas are internet-famous for, I do rather like Jimmy T’s series of coffee cup art, which actually allows him to use more colors than white and brown.

It’s most superhero-based, so we see everyone from the Avengers to X-Men to Batman in these cups. Other characters stop by for a quick appearance like Mega Man and Darth Vader, and you can check the rest below: Continue Reading »

’90s Rock

Published by under Images

rock

I think this was originally supposed to just be a picture/headline pun, but it most served to remind me that there wasn’t much of anything the awful, awful fashion of the ’90s couldn’t make worse. Even someone as empirically badass as The Rock.

I know that every decade things look cool, then 10 years later everyone is like “what the f*** was I thinking?” but I feel like its always twenty times worse with the 90s. The 80s was so tacky it was funny, but the 90s are just cringe-inducing, as evidenced by The Rock’s fanny pack here.

All Hail Turtle Kong

Published by under Images,Television

turtle kong

Between Godzilla and Pacific Rim, we’re on a mini giant monster kick at the movies the last few years, so what if Michael Bay’s upcoming Ninja Turtle reboot went down that path instead? Artist James Callahan has a vision of the horror that might reveal itself, in the form of a massive four-headed turtle using construction equipment and building pieces as their signature weapons. Naturally, April is their captured lady, but I’m sure she can placate them with pizza.

Callahan has some pretty bizarre stuff on his site, this being probably the least weird of all. Check it out here.

Some Clean, Cute Portal GIFs

Published by under Images,Video Games

David Urbinati is a great animator who has a talent for the minimalist. He’s done a series of rather amazing Portal GIFs in his signature style, one of which you can see above which Chell bounding down a testing room somewhere. I love how Portal was one of the first games to at least attempt to explain how an unarmored character could survive falls from nearly infinite heights.

Anyway, there are more where these came from, and you can check them out on David’s site here.

Cosplay(er) of the Day: Illyne

I’m not sure how I’ve gone all this time without ever stumbling across Illyne, a cosplayer extraordinaire who has some of the best costumes I’ve seen. I’m pretty sure she’s French, judging by her Facebook page, and she’s got great versions of Wonder Woman, Lara Croft, and characters from Diablo, Guild Wars, World of Warcraft and more.

Seriously, it’s quite a collection. I took a pair of pictures from each of her best costumes which you can check out below. I am now ashamed of all my previous costume attempts. Continue Reading »

So Thor is a Woman Now

Published by under Comics,Images

Considering comic books were popularized when it seemed like nearly the only people interested in them were white males, and as such we got a lot of white male heroes that still exist to this day.

Marvel is attempting to rectify that by changing a few of their heroes. They made Spider-man a black teen, Ms. Marvel a Muslim girl and now Thor? She’s a lady. But not Lady-Thor. Actual Thor, so says writer Jason Aaron.

“This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before.”

It’s an interesting idea, to simply up and change the gender of a major hero like this, making it canon and not some “alternate bizarro universe” switcharoo. What do you make of this? Cool way to promote gender equality among superheroes? Or should new female superheroes be developed instead?

Dawn of the Apes Concept Art

Published by under Images,Movies

What’s that? The movie is “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” you say? Yeah, I know, but like Rise of the Apes before it, I refuse to address a movie with a title that has more than one “of the” in it. Really, we couldn’t have figured out “Rise of the Apes” was tied to Planet of the Apes if “Planet of the” wasn’t specifically in there? Sigh.

Anyway, this is some rather cool concept art from the new film by Jerad Marantz. In it, we see that once upon a time, the idea was to have the apes start to actually wear clothing to become more and more human-like. That obviously didn’t translate to the final film, as the apes wore nothing past warpaint, but I have to imagine that in the inevitable third film, they might start wearing clothes to hide their ape-shame.

Debate of the Day: Dawn of Justice

Published by under Comics,Images,Movies

Christ, I still can’t get over how awful that Batman vs. Superman subtitle is.

Well, at this point we know that the movie is going to be a very, very obvious set-up for a future JLA movie, though how many sub-movies we’ll see before then is anyone’s guess, a-la-The Avengers. Marvel did…four official canon universe movies before Avengers, right? Two Iron Mans, CapAm and Thor? If Man of Steel is technically the first, then BvS is second, it would be a bit quick to go straight to JLA in my eyes.

We already know that Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) will show up in some form in the new film, and so will Aquaman (Khal Drogo), but will they get their own movies before DC/Warner Bros. goes full JLA?

And also, this awesome art is from Tyler Champion.

Wingardium Levioh-no…

I have a hard time believing half the awful tattoos I see on the internet on a nearly daily basis are real, but something deep inside me says that yes, someone did actually think it would be cool to combine their love of ICP with Harry Potter.

And so…this was born.

The “Muggalo” tattoo imagines what it might look like if Harry Potter was a Juggalo, though the pun doesn’t even work because Muggles are non-magical folk and Potter certainly isn’t one of them. Though perhaps I’m overestimating the mental faculties of someone who would choose to get this permanently etched on their body in the first place.

Daryl and…The Green Ranger?

Published by under Images,Oddly Enough,Television

Comic convention photo ops, with their high school smoke-swirl backdrops, have created more than their fair share of awkward photos over the years, but this one? It just might be a little bit awesome.

That isn’t some dude dressed as Green Ranger taking a picture with Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead. It’s Jason David Frank, the ACTUAL Green Ranger, turned MMA fighter after taking off the tights. I don’t know if he was at the convention as a star or a guest, but either way, this fantastic picture was taken.

I’m pretty sure Reedus has no idea who he is. He’s just like, “this guy, yeah….”

Guardians of the Galaxy Invade Everywhere

Published by under Images,Movies

What’s that? A double dose of artist Rick Cellis today? We just saw his Disney Gotham villains earlier, but it’s time to turn to another Disney property, Guardians of the Galaxy. Here, he’s combined the characters with a wide spectrum of pop culture, including recent hit teen books, Ziggy Stardust, The Lion King, and more.

This guy is seriously fantastic, and deserves more than 600 Instagram followers, so check out his other work there. More GotG stuff below. Continue Reading »
