French artist Thomas Romain is currently working in Tokyo on anime series that have included Aria, Basquash!, Symphogear, and Space Dandy. His talent is obvious, but I think his children are the real geniuses here.

When Mark Hamill first read a Donald Trump Tweet as the Joker we were optimistic that more would follow. We were not disappointed.

As you’ll see, the world’s supervillians have a common enemy: Meryl Streep. [click to continue…]

New mom Katie Stricker Curtis recently took the Chewbacca mask made famous by Candace Payne to the next level by wearing it during labor.
