Many of you may know Scott Johnson of Frogpants, LLC – he’s the person behind the Frogpants Network of podcast (which distributes Critical Hit and our Munchkin Land podcasts), runs a number of sites including Extra Life, and is a great artist. His youngest daughter is still in high school, but is showing a lot of promise as an artist, and one can tell Scott has had a very positive influence in his kids. Carter shared her take on the Futurama cast, and we’re sharing it with you… after the jump.
Diamond Select Toys has released images of the Iron Man 3 Minimates, that features Tony Stark in the Mark 42 armor, and a few other surprises that the company isn’t revealing completely… yet.
What will happen at the end of Iron Man 3? Whatever it is, it has Joss Whedon wondering what he’s going to do in Avengers 2, and the new poster looks epic, but also feels like something alarming is about to happen.
The undead/creepy/bizarre toy craze has been going on for over a decade, and now that toys like Ugly Dolls, The Living Dead Dolls, and Mattel’s Monster High dolls are going strong, creators are looking for the next big thing. “My Little Pony” storybook illustrator Gayle Middleton, who in 2005 redesigned Hasbro’s Littlest Pet Shop toy line, thinks she may have found it, and is Kickstarter to launch the new line.
If you didn’t get enough of the coolness from the last Iron Man 3 trailer, take a gander at the new promo that features even new clips.
Diamond Select Toys has released the first round of images for toys based on the upcoming The Wolverine movie from Marvel.
With all the conspiracy theory videos and movies floating around, it was only a matter of time before the documentarians shifted their gaze to the Death Star to uncover the truth.
Aperture Science has created many wonderful things, so why not take a look inside the company to see how it works?
Like Wrech-It Ralph, people are going to be super confused about Planes. While it is a spin-off from Pixar’s Cars, it is not a Pixar movie, but rather a movie from Walt Disney proper. While you don’t want to bruise egos and companies, after watching the teaser trailer, most viewers are probably not going to care either way.
The older I get the faster time seems to fly by. I think it has something to do with time lived divided by time period measured… or something like that – this is a comic and pop culture website, not a mathematics and psychology website. In any case, this week flew by, and even now I look back at the week that was, and wonder how we managed to get so much done.
There are hundreds of role playing systems launching every day on Kickstarter, but what makes the Dimensions Kickstarter campaign different is it being run/launched by former Major Spoilers intern/writer Shane Pelzel and Landry Fehrenbacher.
We’ve been thinking a lot about death lately – the ending of something that could be the beginning of something else; a time to remember the good times, and the hope that the person has moved on to something better. But comics don’t treat death as a permanent thing. For years readers have seen death become the revolving door in comics; a gimmick, a ploy to part the reader with the money, a sensational event that can be sensationalized across the pages of the few surviving mega newspapers across the country. In short death seems to have lost all meaning for the comic book reader.
