Sweet Christmas!

If I had my way, it'd be September 30th already, and we'd all be watching Luke Cage right now. Sadly, I can't bend the space-time continuum just yet, so we'll have to make do in the meantime with some more hints from Mike Colter, who discussed the Netflix series with Comic Book Resources at the red carpet premiere of Civil War.

DC Comics just announced a new line of comics based on the Hanna-Barbera cartoons of the '60s, such as Jonny Quest, Scooby Doo and The Flintstones. Polishing off some of the problems in stories like Scooby Doo and Jonny Quest sounds like a fun challenge -- but The Flintstones?

Closet Cosplay Tips and Suggestions for Everyone Who Left Their NYCC Outfit to the Last Minute

New York Comic Con kicks off this Thursday, and in theory if you've decided to cosplay then you have your costume mostly done by this point. But you and I, fellow procrastinators, know better. Sometimes you want to go as something, but you have neither the money nor the time to rig up a steampunk Harley Quinn outfit or some genderswapped Monterey Jack from Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers duds. Enter closet cosplay: The last vestige of the casual, lazy, cheap, and/or pressed-for-time cosplayer.

The New Scooby Doo Straight-To-DVD Movie “Curses” Daphne To Be A Size 8

All the scary portrait side-eye in the world, Warner Bros.

Zoinks. For a franchise obsessed with scarfing Dagwood Sandwiches, you'd think the new Scooby Doo movie might have more realistic portrayals of the female body than oh, you, know, Marvel. Scoob's straight-to-DVD Frankencreepy was released yesterday, and damn... crime-solving women are hard to animate, I guess?

Wonder Woman is Teaming Up With Scooby Doo Because Of Course She Is

Ready yourselves, cosplayers.

I'll be honest -- I'm not entirely that interested in the Scooby Doo Team Up DC crossovers for the most part. Usually when I come across one, I read the issue description, think, "But there's no Harlem Globetrotters!" and move on. But not this day, friends. On this day, I find myself gazing upon Velma and Daphne wearing Amazonian armor, and I am pleased. Praise be to Hippolyta!

Fan Trailer for a Grownup Scooby-Doo Movie Is So Awesome It Makes Us Wish It Was Real

Can we please have a full movie of this?

This trailer proves that Scooby-Doo could do very well if it was redone to appeal to an older audience who watched it as children. If you want to see Velma kicking zombies in the face and Daphne hitting people with baseball bats, this video is for you. If you don't, ask yourself why you have no joy in your life.

Coran Stone’s Fan Art Mixes, Mashes, & Updates Classic Genre Characters

eye candy

Coran "Kizer" Stone has a vivid imagination that includes viewing the Scoobie Doo gang as Ghostbusters, a Tintin/Dick Tracey team up, and as you can see here, a military-esque Princess Peach.

Remember That Time Scooby-Doo Crossed Over With Twin Peaks? [VIDEO]


No? It happened recently in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. Scooby falls asleep and finds himself in the Red Room, where the Man From Another Place (voiced by Michael J. Anderson, a.ka. the actor who actually played the Man From Another Place) shows up to warm him about… I don't even know. I was too busy being terrified. If you've ever wondered whether animation and the presence of a goofy dog make the Red Room less creepy, the answer is yes, but only slightly. Another Twin Peaks-inspired scene from later in the season—yes, two different episodes of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated have had Twin Peaks homages—is behind the cut. I want to find the people responsible for this and shake their hands.
