Get on my wall.
It feels almost unnecessary to write anything about artwork that manages to say so much with so little. My hat is off to the folks at Spanish design studio Atipo, who have proven the old adage about pictures being worth a thousand words.
I enjoy making papercraft in my spare time, but this...I bow to this. These amazing dioramas are created by a gent named Wuppes, who clearly knows his way around a cutting board. Arcade and console classics are his jam, and he's got replicas of everything from The Legend of Zelda to Bubble Bobble. Click through to have a gander at his work.
Hear Me Roar
Guess the least favorite moment. Go on. Guess.
We've featured Ann Marcellino's
Sailor Moon/Avengers crossover art
before, but when these pure, undistilled images of the Sailor Senshi appeared on my Tumblr dash, I couldn't pass 'em up. Prints of selected images are available at Society6
, as well as artwork from other fandoms.
And hey, Ms. Marcellino? If you make a Uranus and Neptune print, I will buy it.
for the rest of Julia Lepetit
and Andrew Bridgman
's PSAs from the world of X-Mens. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.
I'm In A Glass Case of Emotion
Toad, Toad, come here. You're my go-to guy in Mario Kart. You're Princess Peach's right-hand shroom. We've all had days like that, buddy. It's going to be okay.
Artist Christopher Hemsworth is the fiendish mind behind these. Click through for more 16-bit angst. Prints are available at Society6.

It Came From Outer Space
In space, no one can hear you scream. Even if you step on stray blocks.
Behold the work of Flickr user Missing Brick
, who has many more images where these came from. In related news, I would definitely watch a stop-motion LEGO version of Aliens
. Somebody get a Kickstarter going.

Holy Rusted Metal Batman!
Our first reaction to hearing the title of the Man of Steel
sequel will be Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
was "wait a diggy damn minute, [PERSON A] v [PERSON B] is a court case.
" But other people around the Internet, particularly on Twitter, had different reactions, because the World Wide Web is full of many different variations on snarky smack talking. Here's a sample.
Hear Me Roar
It's Wednesday, and that means it's time for Rebecca and Jill to share with you our favorite moments from Game of Thrones
, "Mockingjay." "Mockingbird
." Dammit. The Hunger Games
, you have incepted us.
For A More Civilized Age
, one of the creators of Batman: The Animated Series
make Star Wars
. But back in the nineties, he did
pitch to see if he could get the job of doing the comic book adaptation of Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
. He didn't get it (he told one interviewer that this was fine with him, once he saw the film: getting the job "would have killed me!") but we do have these lovely images that he used to prove that he could do the job.
Why Not Do It With Some Style?
Fans Do Cool Things
Wow. Wow. Wow. I'm a big supporter of anyone cosplaying any character they love but there's something to be said for an individual realizing they look oddly similar to an actor and running with it. So is the case for cosplayers Trine Ericzon
, aka Santatory
(as Game of Thrones'
Margaery Tyrell) and Tara Cash
(as the most recent incarnation of Lara Croft, Tomb Raider).
Just Go With It
Or, as artist Mona Robles rightly calls them, Pokemayans. She does commissions as well, if you'd like to give your favorite pocket monster the Mesoamerican treatment. Click through for a whole menagerie.

In Which We Make A Terrible Pun
I like home decor that makes guests do a double take. At first glance, you see a typical coffee table item, but upon further inspection, there's a little something for geeks in the know. Etsy shop Moss Love Terrariums
deals in such goods. Made by Jacie Anderson-Coovert
, these frond-filled vignettes feature some pop culture favorites. Click through for a small crop of them.
Winter Is Coming
It should surprise absolutely no one that Jill and I have a lot of Oberyn in this week's gallery of our favorite bits from Game of Thrones
Things to Do With Your Kids
created this series of Disney baddies as Star Wars
baddies for Moviefone
, and I love all the little details he put in. Oh, and I also love that the Darth Vader/Scar mashup is named "Scarth Vader." Thumbs up on that one.
I Am The Night
Man, that's some tragic gravitas
li'l Bruce Wayne is rocking there. I'd say he's hauntingly intense
. Is it ever going to stop being hilarious that those were the phrases used by a Gotham
casting call and early official synopsis to describe 12-year-old Bruce Wayne? No. No it is not.
The bad guys in this set of posters are the only ones who look like they're having anything resembling good time, and I appreciate that. It fits. But God help me if I become in any way attracted to the Penguin. I'm just saying it's a danger at this point. I know, I know.
The latest episode of Orphan Black
may not have been as action-packed as the last few but it sure did deliver on the awesome, didn't it?
DC Comics has released all of its variant covers for June, on the theme of nineteen-fifties style bombshell posters featuring its major female characters, from Arisia to Zatanna and Mera and Lois Lane in between. The drawings and designs are lovely, and some are even already being pushed to posters, prints, and statues. Still, I agree with DCWKA
when I say: why couldn't we get some dude bombshells? Where's Nightwing? Where's Lobo
? Where's the Martian Manhunter and his barely-there
