  4. David Jablow’s Doodles Subvert Sexy Tropes, Create Awesome Characters

    The mad libs of objectification: solved!

    Women of mid-twentieth century "doodle pads" were placed in provocative and often-fetishized poses so they could be further sexualized via sketching, but artist David Jablow sees the figures as a template for so much more. The only ass that matters to the women of Jablow's doodles is bad-assery, and these characters have it in spades.

  11. Samurai Jack Back From The Past in New Comic Series

    Watch out!

    In 2004, the beloved Cartoon Network series Samurai Jack was abruptly cancelled. The time traveling hero was never able to return to his own era and square down with nemesis Aku, leaving the series sadly unresolved. But his saga is finally set to continue in a comic series published by IDW that gives us the fifth season we always wanted.

  12. Ratings Grab? What Do You Mean, Ratings Grab? Simpsons/Family Guy Crossover is Happening

    Too bad it's not 2005 or we'd actually be excited for this.

    Great news for people who really enjoy once great television now rendered mediocre by time! Fox has announced that next year, The Simpsons and Family Guy will be teaming up for a crossover to be aired as part of the fall 2014 Family Guy season. If I were still in middle school, this would probably be amazing news. Alas, I'm not.

  13. TED-Ed Takes A Look At How Disappointing Super Powers Would Be In Real Life

    Having superpowers would probably not actually be that great. In fact, it could be exceedingly dangerous for your and your loved ones.

    TED-Ed has offered short, entertaining takes on a wide variety of actual science in its brief existence, and we've been consistently delighted by the program's cartoon explanations of everything from the Big Bang to dinosaur feathers. Over the weekend, though, TED-Ed expanded its purview and blew our minds with seven great videos exploring how common comic book superpowers -- real classics like flight, super speed, and super strength -- would operate in the real world. The disappointing answer? Not very well, as the offering on super strength demonstrates here.

  16. Everything You Need to Know About Particle Accelerators in a Three Minute Cartoon

    It should come as no surprise to regular Geekosystem readers that we're big fans of cartoons over here. We're also mad into things like particle accelerators.

  17. The Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Trailer Just Won Trailers [Video]

    Full disclosure: I'm not sure I will play Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. It's getting to be all summery, which generally knocks my video gaming down to pretty meager levels. What I can tell you for sure is that I will be watching this trailer over and over again, because it's what all trailers for all things should be like. It's got cyborg soldiers, cyborg generals who are also part-lizard I think, and a jaguar sort of a thing with glowing eyes that we can only assume is also some sort of cyborg. Seriously. It's the best. Check it out below.

  18. Cartoon Characters Aren’t So Funny When They’re Skeletons

    And Now For Something Completely Different

    But they sure are interesting to look at. Artist Michael Paulus shows us classic cartoon characters as we've never seen them before - as skeletons. In his series "Character Study," Paulus looked at characters that have been around for decades with a scientific eye. He writes, "I decided to take a select few of these popular characters and render their skeletal systems as I imagine they might resemble if one truly had eye sockets half the size of its head, or fingerless-hands, or feet comprising 60% of its body mass." The results are a little macabre but definitely cool. You can purchase prints and originals in his Etsy shop. (via Bookoisseur)

  20. Got a Minute? Here’s Back to the Future in 60 Animated Seconds

    Want to know everything you absolutely need to about Back to the Future but don't have the time to sit down and watch the whole thing? We feel that - after all, it's a busy world these days. Now, thanks to the animators at 1A4 Studios, you can just check out this speedrun of the classic comedy which doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but still makes about as much sense as Back to the Future. All the requisite thrills, chills, and spills are intact, though it will come together a little better if you have seen the movie like a million times before this. You have seen the movie like, a billion times before this, right? Of course you have.
