Comic book covers are an amazing artform. They can be done in so many styles. Sometimes they are paintings, other times they are finely-detailed color pen and ink panels, but one thing I have never seen on a comic cover are balloon sculptures.
Predator fans who like comic books may remember when the very first issue of the Dark Horse comics based on the galactic hunter hit stores. It has been 25 years now since that first issue was published.
Some items satisfy more than one type of geek, making them even more popular than they would have been aiming at a single fan base. This Doctor Who comic book is one of those multi-geek targeting products.
Many of the female bad guys in the comic book world aren’t purely bad. These characters always seem to me to be right on the verge between full bad and somewhat good. A new series of Vinyl Vixens statues have turned up to celebrate three of these morally ambiguous characters from the DC universe.

Instructables member kevinmakes wanted to have a copy of Amazing Fantasy #15 on his wall. The problem?

So kevinmakes decided to do something nearly as amazing: make a layered wood replica of the comic’s cover.
I think we can be honest in that one of the worst superhero flicks to be based on a comic book hero ever was Daredevil. As cool as the movie could’ve been, the finished product we saw in the 2003 film was rather cheesy.
Well this is pretty cool. Before Matt Groening had his Sunday night Fox TV shows under his belt, he needed a side job to pay the bills. He paired up with Apple to make a student’s guide titled “Who Needs a Computer Anyway.”
These super-cute images of our favorite characters from Star Wars were created by James Hance. Why are they so cute? Well, Hance re-imagines Han Solo as Christopher Robin, Chewbacca as Pooh Bear, R2D2 as Piglet, and an AT-AT as Eeyore.
Picture this – you’re being held hostage by an evil, bad-makeup-wearin’ supervillian, but you’re 25 miles away from Gotham City. Normally, you’d be screwed, right? But just then, you reach into your backpack and whip out your own portable Bat Signal, hailing the Dark Knight from across town.
