zatanna_1964_by_onlymilo-d7ys1um

Norman Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post illustrations are iconic and instantly recognizable. Many artists have taken the style and put different characters into the idyllic scenes, including Ruiz Burgos. He’s inserted heroes and villains from the pages of DC Comics into the art, and the series of mash-ups features Zatanna, Poison Ivy, Joker and Harley Quinn, and more.

More of the lovely art after the break.

deadpool

Remember when that Deadpool movie test footage leaked and everyone was really bummed because it reminded us just how much we wanted a Deadpool movie?

Prepare to be made happy. Variety reported yesterday that we’ll be getting a Deadpool movie on February 12, 2016 and it’ll be a spin-off of X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Like the test footage, it will star Ryan Reynolds and be directed by Tim Miller. It’s also being produced by Marvel’s Kevin Feige and Lauren Shuler Donner, which makes me feel like it’ll be in good hands.

It’s a long time to wait, but I think it’ll be worth it.

one ring fire ring

Can you keep a secret and keep it safe? The One Ring from Lord of the Rings is available as a fire ring from Etsy seller Bohemain Alp Designs. It’s perfect for many reasons but especially because you can’t read the the text unless a fire is lit and the ring is hot – JUST LIKE in the books! I’m flailing a little at the thought of roasting marshmallows and grilling steaks on top of the Precious.

The fire ring is 26 inches in diameter and made from 16 gauge steel. It’s ready to ship in 4-6 weeks, and while it’s not cheap, it would make an amazing gift for any Lord of the Rings fan who has a backyard.

Check out a couple more photos of the ring after the break.

st

This gorgeous stormtrooper lamp was handmade by etsy seller Midian Craftworks from over 500 individual pieces of glass. He soldered them all together to create this roughly 12″ x 12″ x 12″ helmet. From the product page:

The helmet was made with quite a few sheets of glass, some rolls of copper foil, 5-6 1lb spools of solder, and a touch of blood, sweat, and tears. Ok, I didn’t quite make it to the tears. Each piece of stained glass was cut by hand. The final piece count was over 501. Nice number, right?! 521 to be exact. After the glass was cut, the edges were ground down and each piece was wrapped in copper foil. I then soldered the pieces together, gave the helmet a good cleaning, patinated the solder black, and finally gave everything a nice waxing to polish the metal and make the glass shine! This piece has also been signed and dated.

It comes shipped with a wooden base that includes the cord and a socket for the bulb. Although you can put it on for a fun photo, it weighs a lot and is not designed for cosplay.

Jeremy Renner black widow

Are you ready for the latest scoop from The Avengers: Age of Ultron? It involves Hawkeye and Black Widow – specifically, it’s Hawkeye wearing a Black Widow mask. Jeremy Renner shared the above photo of him on set wearing what is apparently Scarlett Johansson’s stunt double’s mask—and man, that is not the Hawkeye Black Widow pairing I wanted to see.

size_comparison___science_fiction_spaceships_by_dirkloechel-d6lfgdf_resized

Remember when artist Dirk Loechel put together a poster featuring dozens and dozens of spaceships from science fiction in order to compare them by size? That chart was already impressive, but Loechel can’t quit making updates, and he’s added many more vessels in the last year. You can find vehicles from Dune, Mass Effect, Star Trek, and so many more. The ships are mostly grouped by franchise which means it’s easy to jump around or focus in on one section. It’s weirdly mesmerizing and easy to get sucked into looking at the chart.

Click over to DeviantArt to see the glorious chart at full resolution. Yes, it’s massive.

Super Nerdy ABC Blocks

nerdy abc blocks

It’s never too early to start teaching kids about science, and this set of alphabet blocks is a fantastic start. Designed by Tiffany Ard, the Super Nerdy ABC Blocks feature a letter from the alphabet on one side and illustrated terms from science that go with that letter on the other five sides. For example, “A” is for absolute zero, atom, and more, and “B” is for binary, background radiation, and more. You can view a PDF key that shows all the sides for each letter here.
