Superheroes Join Cancer Center’s Fight Against the Big ‘C’
Cancer sucks. There’s no cure (yet) – only prevention – and no one’s exempt from either getting it now or in the future. Every year, men and women, young and old, fall ill to the dreaded Big ‘C’.

Funny Pop Culture Scenes in LEGO

Funny Pop Culture Scenes in LEGO
Some people build starships with LEGO, others build houses or recreate classic movie moments. Christian Cantrell has his own unique take – borrowing from popular culture and creating humorous scenes using LEGO bricks. Some of these scenes are downright brilliant, cute and funny.

Marvel’s Superheroes Were Babies, Once Upon a Time

Marvel’s Superheroes Were Babies, Once Upon a Time
Superheroes were once babies, too. And it’s about time Marvel showed the whole world what they were probably like, via Skottie Young’s awesomely-rendered covers for the Marvel NOW! titles. This is Skottie’s second batch of covers and he does a pretty bang-up job as usual, as you can see below.

Iron Man Cufflinks Assemble Your Shirt Sleeves

Iron Man Cufflinks Assemble Your Shirt Sleeves
You were amazed at Iron Man’s transforming suitcase in Iron Man 2. You were surprised by his transforming… pod thing in The Avengers. Now, behold: Iron Man cufflinks. What’s that? No, they don’t transform. But I’ll let you in on a trade secret: neither did the suitcase and that pod thing!

Polygon Heroes: Hulk Smash(ed)!

Polygon Heroes: Hulk Smash(ed)!
Superhero art rarely gets old, and these Polygon Heroes by New Zealand artist James Reid really hit the spot thanks to the fact that you can easily recognize the heroes right away, despite being broken down into primitive shapes.

Pablo Cialoni’s Pixel Superheroes: Heroic Bits

Pablo Cialoni’s Pixel Superheroes: Heroic Bits
This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen pixelated superheroes around here, but these ones created by Pablo Cialoni, better known by his handle Pahito, look slightly more minimal than the others that I’ve come across, while still conveying the essence of each character.

Vintage Superhero Posters: Paper Fights Back

Vintage Superhero Posters: Paper Fights Back
French illustrator Grégoire Guillemin created these retro posters as part of his series Exercises in Style, which remind me of the golden age of superheroes. Each poster is unique and the typography matches the overall tone of the art.

Green Lantern Trailer: Superhero Reboot Du Jour

Green Lantern Trailer: Superhero Reboot Du Jour
I’ve always had a weakness for superhero movies. It’s probably because I used to collect comic books when I was younger. I still read some from time to time, but I was really glad to see that Christopher Nolan was able to reboot the Batman series properly.

Superhero Term Papers: They Should Stick to Crime-Fighting

Superhero Term Papers: They Should Stick to Crime-Fighting
Who loves writing term papers? Me neither. And if this archeological find is any indication, our beloved comic book heroes must have hated writing them too, mainly because they suck at it. Well, not everyone – the nerdy Peter Parker got an A+ on his paper, although I doubt his teacher knows the tragic story behind this:

Adrenalineman: Kansan Man Lifts Car Off Girl… or Did He?

Adrenalineman: Kansan Man Lifts Car Off Girl… or Did He?
It happened in Kansas, of all places: 32-year old Nick Harris was about to take his daughter to school when 6-year old Ashlyn Hough, a child of one of his neighbors, was accidentally run over by a Mercury sedan backing out of a driveway.

Heroes Aren’t Born, They’re Made . . . From LEGO

Heroes Aren’t Born, They’re Made . . . From LEGO
If there’s a reason why most things that come from Pixar are so geek-friendly, it’s probably because most of the people at Pixar are geeks. Take Angus MacLane. He was the Lead Animator on WALL-E, which was well received by most geeks for obvious reasons (robots).

Both of them will be produced by super studio Madhouse, responsible for classics like Ninja Scroll, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, Trigun, Millennium Actress, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Hajime no Ippo and many other awesome stuff that I want to watch again.
