Things We Saw Today: Gandalf Walking To Comic-Con

The Mary Sue

Peter Jackson is a busy bee on Facebook recently. First he let us know The Hobbit films have wrapped shooting, now he’s adding to the excitement by premiering an exclusive Comic-Con poster on his Facebook. At that rate, Gandalf should be at SDCC in no time. 

  • A female marine has spoken out saying women in infantry is a bad idea. Read all about it at The Frisky.
  • Check out the Kickstarter from Kelly Thompson for her new book The Girl Who Would Be King. Two girls with extraordinary powers, one who uses them for good, one for bad, are about to meet for the first time. What will happen?

Here’s a teaser poster (also for SDCC) for AMC’s The Walking Dead Season 3 featuring Rick and new additions Michonne and the Governor. Please don’t get our hopes up just to smash them to bits again please. (via Collider)

This lampshade will project the night’s stars on your ceiling. Unfortunately it’s not for sale. :( But perhaps if you bug the creators enough they might change their minds. (via Neatorama)
