Hold onto your horses – DC Comics is doing something fun and non-controversial!
They’re releasing a new digital first series called Batman: Li’l Gotham by Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolfs. It will be released monthly with each installment focusing on the major holiday of the month; the debut issue today will be all about Halloween.
The series will be in the style of the above image by Nguyen. It’s super adorable, and I can’t help but wonder if it has anything to do with the success of Skottie Young’s Marvel babies variant covers. From the DC Comics blog:
“This has been a passion project of mine for some time now, and for anyone that’s followed my work, I’m sure it’s more of an ‘its about time!’ explained Dustin Nguyen. “The look and style is a slight departure from my usual (think the exact opposite of serious), but the idea has always been the same—to take our favorite existing Gotham characters, place them in fun scenarios without having to be tied to just one continuity or look and feel. It’s basically a Batman book for fans, by two huge fans.”
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s issue will follow after Halloween. I’m looking forward to downloading it and giving Li’l Gotham a try!

Skottie Young’s Marvel heroes as babies variant covers are more than just cute; they’re inspiring. After seeing some of the delightful covers, soon-to-be-father Eric decided to incorporate them into his baby’s nursery and go full on Marvel with the theme.
He was frustrated with the lack of products available on the market so he painted a mural based on Young’s art on the wall and designed some simple yet awesome themed decorations to complement the art. There are some commercial products like plushes and lamps among the decor, and those are nice but I particularly love the handmade alphabet art and paper crafts. It came together perfectly.
Forget babies, I want this cute Marvel-themed room for myself!

Good Smile Company will be releasing the uber-cute Nendoroid Iron Man Mark 7: Hero’s Edition toy next February, which will give collectors and Iron Man fans from all over the world something to smile about.
Tony Stark’s boyish charm and good looks shine through in the Nenderoid figure, which comes with closed and open helmet booster effect parts and a diorama pedestal base that features a miniature skyline with Stark Tower in the back. Get a closer look at the figure after the break.
No idea if this Snorlax* bed is actually for sale, but if you’re on the hunt for a Snorlax-themed piece of furniture that you can actually buy, then check out the Snorlax beanbag chair.
*Many people have pointed out that this is a Totoro bed, not Snorlax—It has been corrected in the title. We still want it though.
Lindalee Rose is four years old and watches Doctor Who. She not only checks out the series every weekend, she reviews each episode in videos that are so cute they might just kill you. It doesn’t matter if you agree with her (or her parents writing her script), just watch them. I especially love her rundown of “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship.”
Watch her reviews for every episode so far this season after the break.
When sentry turrets from Portal aren’t busy keeping an eye on things, they’re busy being cute. BioWare designer Zachariah Scott showed us the softer side of the turrets in a series of short videos. Seriously, you’ll want to hug them.
See the cuteness in the videos after the break.
With the help of his Dad, a mini Indiana Jones fan named Logan produced a fan film which focuses on the retrieval of a “Tiki looking ceramic thingy” while avoiding a spider bite.
Check it out after the break.
As you’ll see in the video after the break, this adorable 11-month old girl is more than a worthy adversary for her father in a lightsaber battle. The force is definitely strong with this one.
