The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s crazy things like Tetris porn or the big reveal of where Catwoman stashes the hidden scepter Bastet while on the run. Hey, it’s the internet folks. Luckily there is always the counter balance of some mind blowing nerd based art. We collect it, you enjoy it, and we are all better for it.
ABOVE: Aww, looks like someone got their giant gamma powered butt stuck in the “werm hole exparimunt” at Avengers HQ. A wonderful blend of Winnie the Pooh and The Avengers, this piece by cpwilsoniii also defines every comic nerds nightmares now that the Mouse owns the House of Ideas. [Deviant Art]
Hit the jump for an anime Princess Peach, X-babies, Batman in chains and MOAR!
Chris Hardwick: Comedian, TV host, Podcast master, and now a time-traveling intergalactic secret agent? Awesome! Created by Adam Limbert as part of California’s Gallery 1988 show “Is This Thing On?”, “The Nerdist” shows off the more secret side to everyone’s favorite son of a bowler (True story, Chris is actually the son of pro bowler Billy Hardwick).

An amazing combination of East meets West from a purely western artist. Know only under his Deviant Art name “Kit“, this artist perfectly blends Japanese manga and American pop culture into some awesome works of art. Just check out his takes on Spider-man, the Justice League and even action hero Kurt Russell as Snake Plissken, well done sir! [Comics Alliance]
Words cannot truly describe how awesome is, Peter Dinklage as Wolverine. Sure, you couldn’t make any short or Canadian jokes without losing your vitals, but can you see all the issues of X-men flying off the shelves. Any issue with Jean Grey and this Wolverine knocking boots would be legendary. [Nerd Approved]
The well loved Toy Story goes dark. Created by Kyle Lambert entirely using the iPad Brushes app, a 25 image twisted mashup of Andy’s lovable toys and Stanley Kubrick’s horror classic The Shining. Kyle cleverly uses the iconic toys and even the Pixar mascot and logo to recreate the famous scenes that made Jack Nicholson a household name. We’ll never look at a barrel of monkeys the same way again. [Comics Alliance]
Nothing say’s “America” like a flowing red cape and a wedgie only a super heroine can handle- even if she was born light years away on planet Krypton. This Power Girl by jiuge is simply outstanding, with her flowing blond locks and her ability to pull off tights that tight. We still don’t get what’s with the doves, but we like it. [DeviantArt]
Never has Victor Fries looked so adorable- unless you count the pyjama wearing Arnold Schwarzenegger in Batman & Robin (we don’t). Drawn by Dustin Nguyen, this child-like take on the doctor of cold just makes you want to scream for ice cream, or at least help him with that snow globe dome he’s wearing. [Geek Tyrant]
Check out DC’s sexiest villains all Disneyified and ready for a night out on the town. Designed by Deviant Artist Cat Londers, these versions of Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and Catwoman -who seems to have stolen from Pocahontas and Ariel- would be perfect for any Disney fairy-tale. [i09]
David M Buisan gives us a hero that had heat vision before it was cool. Part of a collection of Super Hipsters, this collection turns our favorite DC heroes into indie music, plaid loving coffee shop dwellers. If there was anything that would drive me to be a super villain, a hipster Superboy would be it. [GeekPron]
By now you’ve seen the work of Sarah Johnson and her Ordinary Batman Adventures, but we’re going to give those of you that haven’t another look. Sarah takes the Dark Knight out of the streets of Gotham and bringing him into a much lighter setting like cleaning the litter box or having his morning cereal, just like us! See? He has regular every day problems too, bet that makes you feel better about not being a billionaire playboy/crime fighter. [Geek Tyrant]
