We’re used to our superheroes looking young and fit, but artist Eddie Liu put some thought into what would happen if those heroes aged and decide to retire to whereever it is retired superheroes go.
I think the Wonder Woman is my favorite. I can totally picture her playing Mahjong with the older ladies down in Florida.

Artist Allison Sohn clearly lives in a very creative household. She recently posted this gorgeous commission by her husband Adam Hughes.
This set of four pieces features some of your favorite DC ladies in the style of Alphonse Mucha’s “The Four Seasons”. They’re done in color Copic Marker with colored pencils, a little paint, and ink.
I can’t help hoping he does a variation on this for fans to purchase.
Thanks to Allison for sharing it!
Just the other day we had this awesome Studio Ghibli/Zelda mashup, and now artist David Pilatowsky has gifted the world with these beautiful Zelda and Pokemon watercolor-style characters.
Between the cuteness factor and the skill of the art itself, they’re definitely worth a look.

Luma Dice are carved from a single block of aluminum and feature different color LEDs for each side. Each die uses an accelerometer to detect motion so the light goes on when in use and turns off automatically. Plus, the battery inside is easily replaceable (and cheap).
And yes, they claim that great care was taken to keep the dice balanced.
Luma Dice blew away their initial Kickstarter goal almost immediately, but stretch goals include cool things like different color dice and even a D20 version.
Check out the project video below to see the dice in action.

While a Zelda film from Studio Ghibli is highly unlikely, just looking at these movie posters by artist Matt Vince makes me feel like it’s already happened.
They are, in a word, stunning.

This morning, I saw a tweet by Alex Mullane that simply said:
“Dear Star Wars nerds, I *strongly* urge you to Google this, verbatim: A long time ago in a galaxy far far away”
As a Star Wars nerd, and because I can’t resist a good Google trick, I did so. I am now strongly urging you to do the same (or just click here and save yourself a few seconds). You’ll be glad you did.
UPDATE: We’ve just discovered another awesome trick thanks to Twitter user MMOGirlKai. You can choose Light or Dark Side to customize your Google experience. Do it and watch what happens.
I went Dark Side, natch.
You may have heard that Donna and The Doctor are adventuring together again in Doctor Who Tenth Doctor audio dramas. Now you can check out a sample.
They’re arguing. It’s brilliant.
We’ve also got a clip of Tennant and Tate saying nice things about each other while discussing what it’s like to work together again. Check them both out below.

You Tube channel Digging Deeper takes a look at Joss Whedon’s Serenity and explains why the movie succeeds (as film – it wasn’t exactly a box office smash) across multiple genres.
I’m not sure I’d agree with everything said here, but I do think Firefly and Serenity were far more visionary than many people initially realized.
Check out the video below and feel free to share your thoughts.

The second I saw this Cthulhu Space Hopper, I wanted it. Like, WANTED. Talk about a blast from the past mixed with some serious awesome.
Yes, a genius combined a hopper with a Cthulhu plush and now you can bounce around the house on an Elder God. How is this not the best thing ever?

LEGO Ideas member Masman8675 has proposed a BTTF 1:1 Scale Hoverboard Model over at LEGO Ideas and it needs your votes to happen:
I have tried to create an extremely accurate LEGO version of the hoverboard used in the BTTF movies. It’s to the exact specifications of the prop used in the films: 71 centimeters/28 inches long, 20 centimeters/8 inches wide, and 3 centimeters/1 inch thick. In LEGO, that translates to: 90 studs long, 25 studs wide, and 3 bricks thick. It would be more accurate at 2 and 2/3, but that would look less accurate, and could possibly compromise the structural integrity.
This set would come with: The Hoverboard Model of course, and two minifigures: Doctor Emmet Brown in his 2015 attire, and Marty McFly in his 2015 clothes as well. The whole set is made up of 3,680 pieces: the full-sized Hoverboard model – 3,663 pieces, the minifigures with a stand and a minifigure scale hoverboard – 18 pieces.
Sounds good to me.
