Artist Andrew Dat Tran has taken a selection of Game of Thrones characters and reimagined them as part of the Star Wars universe. As you’ll see, the execution is fantastic.

Coloring books! Anyone can color in the lines. However, Twitter user Bankokukun took things a few steps further by delivering these terrifying images of an insanely muscular Pikachu and Pancham.

Before I even start, a couple things. If you’re a Supernatural fan, you may want to make sure you have any asthma meds handy if you need them for shortness of breath. Put down any food or liquids, get a few good deep breaths, and make sure you’re somewhere no one will mind you making noise.

If you’re just someone who loves a good bit of snark and fun, take the warning with whatever seriousness you deem appropriate.

Why?

Because you’re about to read a pregnancy confession that was pretty awful to begin with, then went sideways in the best possible way. Check it out in the gallery below. [click to continue…]

diy rick and morty portal gun

We’ve seen some elaborate Rick And Morty portal gun prop builds, but this version from DIY Prop Shop looks fantastic and costs $40 or less to put together.

See how it’s done in the video below. [click to continue…]

marvel fanart

We recently saw an anime spin on Captain America: Civil War and this amazing series by NeoArtCorE is in the same realm only with a more realistic style.

Love it.

Check out the entire series below (and yes he does take commissions). [click to continue…]

universe envelope

As the old saying goes, “send your enemies and envelope full of glitter. Send your loved ones an envelope full of stars.”

On that note, the Japan Trend Shop sells envelopes that, once opened, can be held up to a light source to reveal an “astronomically correct depiction of the night sky”. Oh, and you can probably put a letter in there or something, I don’t know.

Packs of these beautiful envelopes run for $83 a set, not including shipping which, them being in Japan an’ all, is probably not going to be cheap. You could buy them directly from the manufacturer themselves where the price is a slightly more reasonable $10, but then you have to figure out how to get them from Japan to your home in… y’know, whatever country you live in. Importers like White Rabbit Express might be helpful on that front.

ew first look american gods

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have our first look at Shadow and Mad Sweeney duking it out at Jack’s Alligator Bar in Bryan Fuller’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods for Starz.

This picture alone makes me almost as gleeful as Ian McShane’s Mr. Wednesday looks as he watches the fight. You can just tell that the casting for each of these characters, not to mention the set, are dead on.

Additionally, Fuller recently announced Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy, which seems about as perfect as perfection can get, and Demore Barnes as Mr. Ibis. Plus, earlier this month, we found out that Gillian Anderson was cast as Media.

I think I’m dreaming. This really is going to be amazing. [click to continue…]

magic gears

Let these “Magic Gears” created by puzzle designer Oskar van Deventer wash over you. From the description:

Magic Gears Grid is a triangular grid of Magic Gears. As everybody knows, adjacent gears are supposed to turn in an opposite direction, and gears should be gridlocked when meshed in a triangular grid. However, it works for magic gears. Magic Gear Grid has a total of 19 magic gears in a triangular grid, one of which has a crank. When the crank is turned, then magic gears with the green side up turn clockwise, those with the red side up turn counter-clockwise (anti-clockwise). Surprising, isn’t it?

Surprising AND soothing.

Artist Kaleb Leigh has reimagined the various Houses of the Game of Thrones series as Pokémon, because if you want long enough someone’ll inevitably combine two things into one marginally cooler thing.

The series, cleverly named “A Song of Blue and Red”, takes each House and imagines what a Pokémon based on that House might look like. Not a bad idea, and it’s executed pretty well. Certainly better than most recent Pokémon designs anyway. Check out the full gallery below. [click to continue…]

Coloring books for adults are huge right now, and Dark Horse is jumping on the bandwagon in a big way with a new series that kicks off with Serenity, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Bait: Off Color Stories For You To Color by Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk.
