The Interwebz, where nerd art runs wild. Oh, and they draw a lot too. Some times nerd art takes dark unspeakable forms, such as the day the black plague hit Equestria, oh the ponimanity. Other times it’s exactly what it should be. Yes, It’s time for a Nerd Art Dump.

ABOVE: By now millions of gamers are in the midst of this exact sight, after hours of playing Blizzard‘s Diablo 3 on their computers they and their room are wrecked. Since seeing a drawing of a sweating male gamer would make you pry your eyes out, we opted for the safer, more feminine version. [The Smiling Sam]

Hit the jump for a Game of Thrones/Adventure Time mash-up, Batman vs. Guy Gardner, Hulk’s fist and MOAR!

With the recent news of Where the Wild Things Are writer and illustrator Maurice Sendak‘s passing people have been making their own little tributes, even the Avengers. Artist Agarthan Guide to the iconic image crafted by Maurice and gave it that custom Avengers look. Just look at that smile on Thor’s face and try not to agree. [Blastr]

I remember the Jawas being less…terrifying, according to Paul Pope however, terrifying is just what these Star Wars characters needed. Would you really try going after R2-D2 in your t-16 landspeeder with a gang of these angry looking sand dwellers in your way? Hell no, let that princess figure her own damn way out of the Death Star. [Geek Tyrant]

Having never watched an episode of Game of Thrones, his awesome mash-up with the odd and funny Adventure Time would be a start at gaining new fans. Featuring Jon Snow and Ghost as Finn and Jake, and created by Daisy Edwards, you can bet the guys at Adventure Time will parody this show in some manner in the future. Although they’ll be skipping the boobage onscreen, it is a cartoon show after all. [The Mary Sue]

Being one of the few to actually piss of Batman, Green Lantern Guy Gardner has already once had his lantern knocked out by DC‘s resident badass, but it’s time for round two. Drawn by Kevin Maguire, the round appears to already be over since Guy is about to kiss the floor. Just goes to show having the power of will means shit against a rock-solid fist. [Comics Alliance]

Sure, it’s not as dark as the original 1979 poster, but this work from Aaron Wells is still damn creepy even if it’s simply a set of brush strokes. Taking the signature Ridley Scott creation and sticking it right in the forefront may spoil the big reveal, but it sure messes with your head. [Geek-Art]

By know everyone has seen the Avengers, so the following is known to many as one of the best parts of the Joss Whedon feature. Fabio Castro captures the moment oh so well, and he didn’t even need to do anything super realistic, just use the Hulk’s massive fist. [Geek Tyrant]

Somebody’s been a bad kitty, and Mindy Lee makes her look damn “purrfect”. Taking Batman’s classic Catwoman and lacing her with jewelery and pearls makes her look oh so sweet, but she appears to be distracted by her feathery toy. Guess cats really do enjoy the little things in life. [Super Punch]

There’s no doubt that Evil Dead 2 was one of the best horror/slapstick comedy movies out there even after over twenty years. This James Fenwick created poster would have been perfect for the first theatrical run back in the ’80s. [Fuck Yeah, Movie Posters]

Now this is something you don’t see everyday; Captain America, Superman and Nick Fury in a free for all against a room for of stormtroopers. Either artist Darick Robertson wanted to make the minds of nerds blow right out of their heads or he’s busy working on the biggest fan-made crossover ever seen. If this were to ever become a real thing they would already be making the second set of reprints for those empty comic book shelves. [Comics Alliance]
