Unlike other superheroes, Batman has a strict no-murder policy — but the filmmakers who've adapted Bruce Wayne's adventures for the silver screen have bent that rule a bit. This mash-up by Mr. Sunday Movies catalogues every single time Batman has done the deed, and it's quite an impressive collection of kills.Read More

What, you aren't always talking about Batman and Futurama on a constant loop?
Futurama is ending soon -- again. But before that, it looks like Matt Groening and crew are looking to get the most out of their final season, and that includes getting Batman stars Adam West and Burt Ward to do a special guest appearance on the show. They recently released images of the character models on the Comedy Central website, and they look sufficiently Batman-y to make me very happy about the state of the world. Admit it, you really have been hoping those two would get back together for another Return to the Batcave. I refuse to hear otherwise.Read More

We've featured the work of phantasmagorically talented makeup artist Jangsara here before. We can't help it, every time we come across more of her work we spend a good fifteen minutes just pawing at our computer screens, contemplating whether it makes any sense at all to go on a MAC shopping spree to try these looks on our own eyes, even with our less-than-steady hands. Her work is always good for filling our daily quotient of Pretty Things to Look At, and these recent efforts are no different. Click through to witness some of her geek-inspired eye-art, and make your peepers a little bit jealous.Read More
