Things We Saw Today: The Book From Hocus Pocus

Holly Conrad of Crabcat Industries (you might also know her from Syfy’s Heroes of Cosplay) created a replica of Winifred Sanderson’s book from Hocus Pocus for a friend’s wedding. And I want it so bad. She sculpted, cast, and painted it while Hilary Grimes bound it into an actual book. I mean, boooooOOOOOOOk! 


And Now For Something Completely Different

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

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.

It’s Been A Long Time Charlie Brown – A Peanuts Movie Is Coming To Theaters In 2015

You may reminisce each Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas with the Peanuts gang but hold onto something – Fox is producing a brand new feature length film with Charles Schulz’s gang. The first teaser was just released on Twitter this morning and it’s being reported November 25, 2015 is the exact release date. It also happens to be the 65th anniversary of the start of the comic strip and the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas. No other details at this point except the deal was made after a few years of negotiations with the Schulz family. Hopefully that means it will be done in the best way possible. Are you excited?

Things We Saw Today: The Dark Knight Rises Composer Dedicates New Song to Help Raise Money for Aurora Shooting Victims

Another day, another heart-warming response from the Dark Knight Rises team in the wake of the Aurora shooting. This time it’s legendary film composer Hans Zimmer, who scored the trilogy, who has composed a song for those affected by the tragedy:

“‘Aurora’ is dedicated to those who lost their lives and were affected by the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. I recorded this song in London in the days following the tragedy as a heartfelt tribute to the victims and their families. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Aurora Victim Relief organization.”

You can listen to the song and donate to the cause here. (via MTV)

Things We Saw Today: Lady Gotham

There’ve been times I’ve seen work from creators and say to myself immediately, “This needs to be in continuity at DC/Marvel.” This is one of those times. Ming Doyle created a comic titled, “Lady Gotham,”  straight out of art school. It features Batman’s mom, Martha Wayne, and although Doyle laments doing things differently we still want to see this get picked up by DC Comics. Especially since she also explains her love for Batman: The Animated Series. Hit the jump for all kinds of other stuff we saw today…
