Penguins are cute. Judge Dredd is a badass. Combine the two and you have the cutest badass in the world. This is an 11.5 cm statue created by Blind Mouse Toys that has turned Judge Dredd into a penguin. He was designed by Daniel Balmforth and Steve Scholz, and painted by sculptor Joe Amaro to look perfectly adorable. He may be the law but he’s going to be hard not to hug.

Garth Ennis Preacher image

Get ready to rejoice Preacher fans. Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s Preacher is being developed for AMC by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. AMC has already ordered a pilot, which is set to shoot in 2015 and air sometime in 2016. The synopsis reads:

Preacher follows Reverend Jesse Custer, a tough Texas preacher who has lost his faith, has learned that God has left Heaven and abandoned His responsibilities. He finds himself the only person capable of tracking God down, demanding answers, and making Him answer for His dereliction of duty. Accompanying Jesse on his journey is his former girlfriend and a friendly vampire who seems to prefer a pint in the pub to the blood of the innocent. On his tail is one of the most iconic bad guys in print – an immortal, unstoppable killing machine named the Saint of Killers – a western lone gunman archetype whose sole purpose is to hunt and kill Jesse.

Rogen and Goldberg has this to say in Variety:

’Preacher’ has been our favorite comic since it first came out. Garth Ennis is one of our idols and it’s an incredible honor to be working on this. We promise we won’t make too many dick jokes and ruin it.

AMC already has a new Preacher twitter account and used that to announce the news.

Spelling is important and these movie titles with one letter missing are the proof. The new movie names were all submitted on reddit and then artist Austin Light created brand new movie posters for these entirely different films. We kind of love the idea of Finding Emo, Pup Fiction, and Harry Otter. His designs have gone over so well that he’s now selling them as t-shirts and prints.

Those of you fearing that The Walking Dead would end with Rick simply waking up from a coma to find it was all a bad dream can now rest easy. After being called out by Uproxx in a post titled, “Robert Kirkman Needs To Go On The Record Promising The Walking Dead Won’t End As Rick Grimes’ Coma Dream” the creator of the series granted their wish.

Robert Kirkman took to twitter to confirm that there will be no dream ending for the series. Rick is most definitely awake and the events of the series are really happening to him.

Of course, Kirkman couldn’t just leave it at that. He had to go and put a whole new potential ending idea into our heads. Find out what it is after the break….
