The Fantastical Imagination Of Artist Story Sabatino

Story Sabatino (Oozn on DeviantArt) has a style that jumped out at me immediately. While she does some wicked fan art inspired by things like Game of Thrones, she also creates wonderful scenarios of her own with some interesting creatures. See for yourself…

Gail Simone and Brian Wood to Collaborate on Red Sonja/Conan Crossover

We’ve got our first big NYCC announcement, and it’s that Gail Simone and Brian Wood will both be taking their well received takes on the prototypical pulp barbarians Red Sonja and Conan the Barbarian and, despite how both characters currently belong to different companies, will be joining forces for a story.

While Simone’s Sonja is currently has a lot of history behind her, and Wood’s Conan series focuses on a time when the Barbarian was still young, the writers say they’ll be swapping things up for the crossover:

Conan the Barbarian Cross-Stitch Helps You Sort Out Your Priorities

By Steotch. I love geeky cross stitch/embroidery. Also, this reminds me of the fact that Dame Judi Dench embroidered cushions with curse words on the set of Pride and Prejudice, which is one of my favorite things I have ever read.

There’s A Sequel To Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Twins On The Way And That’s Not The Worst Part

Apparently the news of this film came out earlier this year. We either didn’t see it or we blacked out when we heard it. Either way, here we are. A sequel to the 1988 comedy Twins, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito is getting a sequel. The two leads will return. It will be called Triplets. Eddie Murphy will play their new lost brother from the same mother. Previously, it wasn’t certain this was happening but now they’ve got a writer attached so prepare yourself in whatever way you feel necessary. I’m going to pull out my zombie apocalypse kit.

The Women Of Conan The Barbarian, Better Than You Might Think

I’ll be honest, the only reason I was going to see the recent reboot of Conan the Barbarian was for its star Jason Momoa. Thanks to his time on HBO’s Game of Thrones, he’s now someone I follow (not in a creepy way). I wasn’t really a fan of the 1982 Conan and I had no illusions the film would be anything but a male-pandering, bloody escapade with lots of bared breasts. What I was surprised to find out was it was an excellent depiction of strong female characters. And lots of bared breasts.

Does Stan Lee Want The Conan Movie?

Stan Lee, the creator of such iconic characters as Spider-Man, the Hulk and Thor, has a lot of name recognition. So when Stan Lee Media Inc. filed a lawsuit last August against the producers of the rebooted Conan The Barbarian, people took notice. There’s just one problem, Lee founded the company but no longer has any part in it.

Jason Momoa Would Like to Write Himself Into Game of Thrones Next Season

So, Jason Momoa is coming off a really good streak of success in the business we call “show.” He is currently playing the lead in Conan the Barbarian, which is doing … well, it was released this weekend. And he also played one of the more popular and mysterious characters on HBO‘s Game of Thrones, Khal Drogo. If you don’t know what happens to him, suffice it to say that Khal Drogo is not set to appear in the second season. But Jason Momoa has some ideas about how he can appear, despite what George R. R. Martin has written in his books, on which each season of the show is based. Oh, Jason Momoa. (Game of Thrones Season 1 spoilers after the jump.)
