Things We Saw Today: Madame De Ackbar Can’t Repel Decorum Of This Magnitude
My good sirs, I do believe this appears to be a trap.
Madame de Ackbar, found art restorer Nerdscapes writes, “is a unique collage and paint art piece that will adorn the walls of the more discerning geek.” You can find it, and other classic artworks like it (Otter Penguins is also a delightful choice), for sale on their Etsy page.
- Not to be outdone by Flavorwire’s write-up, Sarah LeBouef of Escapist Magazine put together this fantastic article about The Mary Sue’s “Strong Female Character” panel from Saturday at New York Comic Con. Thanks!
- We’re only one episode into the Freak Show, but American Horror Story is definitely getting a fifth season. Eagerly awaiting a season where the big horror-filled gimmick is mermaids, to be honest. (via The Hollywood Reporter)
- Speaking of wild rumors—we were doing that, right?— Sony might be working on a “soft reboot” of Spider-Man within The Sinister Six. Guys. Guys. You can’t reboot all the problems in your superhero franchise away. That didn’t work last time, remember? (via Uproxx)
- Ever heard of tetrachromats? They’re people, usually women, who can see up to 100 times more colors than the average human eye can. Man, you could be an X-Men with that kind of power. Not a first tier one, but you know how it is. (via BoingBoing)
What’s this? Bilbo Baggins gets two close-up angry faced posters for The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies? I know he’s the main character and all, but that’s hardly fair. WHAT ABOUT THRANDUIL. (via ComingSoon.net)
