Our sister site CubicleBot has been running daily comics over the past couple of months, and we’ve collected 10 of our favorites so far. Check them out before you inevitably fall into a Thanksgiving food coma.
This is definitely not the real Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, but it’s pretty fantastic considering there wasn’t much material to work with. There are bits and pieces from the old films and fan films mixed with dialogue taken from The Force Unleashed and, believe it or not, Anchorman 2.
See the trailer after the break.
If you’ve wanted to see the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but you’re not able to get to one of the handful of theaters that will be showing the trailer this weekend, time to rejoice.
The Star Wars Twitter just announced that the #TheForceAwakens teaser will be on iTunes this Friday.

Baymax doesn’t exactly fit into the armor Hiro makes for him in Big Hero 6. His belly sticks out, and 3D Marketplace 3Denovo saw Baymax’s stomach differently than most of us. They pictured the belly as a light bulb. So, they 3D printed the armored Baymax as a single piece and designed it so that the robot can fold in the middle, leaving room for the light bulb.
It’s a cute idea except for the part where the light bulb protrudes from Baymax’s back. That just makes it really, really weird.

Batgirl recently got a makeover when her comic got a new creative team. She moved to Burnside and seems a little more lighthearted and has a touch of sass that wasn’t evident before. DC Collectibles is taking the design of this Barbara Gordon by Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr and turning it into a statue for their Black and White line of figures. The statue is sculpted by Irene Matar, and it looks absolutely beautiful.
The sad news? Batgirl won’t be out until September 2015.

Explore a magical city paved with the names of video games in this map print by the Dorothy design studio. The fictional map design is loosely based on a section of Tokyo, and over 500 gaming titles are represented. They even incorporate some references to the history of gaming. Travel to Riot City, go to Combat School, and don’t forget to stop at Donkey Kong Circus. From the product page:
The map features districts dedicated to survival horror (Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Sweet Home), beat ‘em ups (Street fighter, Streets of Rage, Double Dragon) and Nintendo classics (Super Mario Kart, Donkey Kong Land, Luigi’s Mansion) as well as many geeky ‘in’ references to entertain the most hardcore (or the oldest) of gamers. An A-Z key at the base of the Map lists all the games featured along with their release date.

It’s finally happened. I’ve finally seen a take on Pokémon that isn’t adorable. Artists J. R. Coffron and Stephen Oakley teamed up and created a horrifying combination: zombie Pokémon. Just look at Pikachu! The pocket monsters become actual scary monsters in this art, and I do not want to catch either of them.

As Neil Gaiman recently reminded us, there’s been a dearth of female writers on the modern series of Doctor Who. The last episodes penned by a woman aired in 2008. However, Gaiman also revealed that Moffat was personally reaching out to female writers but was met time and time again with rejection and scheduling conflicts.
Thankfully, Catherine Tregenna was able to take on the challenge, joining Doctor Who’s ninth season. Huzzah! You may be familiar with her work on Law & Order: UK, EastEnders, and Torchwood.
I hope she’s just the first of many women to be added to Steven Moffat’s roster because it wouldn’t hurt the show to be approached from other perspectives.
Imagine a world where Batman and Darth Vader live in the same universe. Vader’s Force powers could go against Batman and his science and logic. They would undoubtedly have an epic battle, and this Batman vs. Darth Vader Super Power Beat Down video from Machinima depicts how it might play out.
Place your bets and watch the fight after the break.
We are getting a live-action Goosebumps movie and it has a weird plot along with some terrifying monsters. The film stars Jack Black as author, R.L. Stine, whose books were actually serving as prisons for the monsters. The original synopsis reads:
In Goosebumps, upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach Cooper (Dylan Minnette) finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah (Odeya Rush), living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine (Jack Black), the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange… he is a prisoner of his own imagination – the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it’s suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.
