Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerdy art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every nook and cranny of the Interwebz. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly feed of nerd art. On with the dump!
Oh look, a Disney/Star Wars mash-up… This one by Xum Yukinori, features Darkwing Duck joining the dark side of the force, which appears to be more open to purple instead of the customary black. [Geek Tyrant]
Hit the jump for video games, movie posters, Ariel as the Swamp Thing and MOAR!
Movie posters based on comic book story arcs? Genius! Evan DeCiren has made a collection of these beasts based on Deadpool, Captain America and, Daredevil. Using nothing more then his computer and some photoshop, this smart S.O.B. has made the posters for movies Hollywood should be putting into production. [Deviant Art]
I’m sorry, but there are just some moments where you have to go “Aww” no matter how manly and this is one of them. Artist Feriowind decided to pair each member of The Avengers with Pokemon who they thought best suited each hero. And everyone is pretty bang on, but follow the link to see The Hulk’s picture, you’ll laugh till you cry. She even includes Spider-Man and Pepper Potts in the mix. [Comics Alliance]
We can’t quite explain the reasoning behind why Rosy Higgins decided to combine Disney‘s Ariel and DC comic‘s Swamp Thing, but it looks pretty damn cool. Maybe Prince Eric is into scaly chicks with a love of nature and singing? [Geek Tyrant]
In a place like Sunnydale this had to have happened at least once, Buffy and the gang battling the crazed Muppet’s of Sesame Street out for blood and cookies. Justin Hillgrove put together this lovely piece worthy of traumatizing your son or daughter for years to come. [Imps And Monsters]
Welcome to Canada. Two things you need to know: Snow is cold and pissing off a naked, claw wielding mutant that just escaped a a secret government facility is stupid. [Otis Frampton]
He’s a producer, director, screenwriter and the man behind the cult classic Freak and Geeks, but now Judd Apatow can add “subject of an entire gallery” to his body of work.

The opening reception is Tuesday, December 4th from 7 PM to 10 PM and will run through Sunday, December 30th at the Gallery1988 Melrose gallery in Los Angeles. [Laughing Squid]
How despicable! Here’s Black Cat, bathing in a tub of milk and there’s no cookies in sight. Just kidding, this piece on Marvel‘s secret Spider-Man lover was actually tastefully done by Clayton Henry. Now if only we could figure out if Felicia Hardy is rocking skim or 2%, both good for the skin. [Deviant Art]
Now before you get all excited this isn’t concept are for a Game of Thrones fighting game, the world isn’t ready for something that awesome as of yet. This is actually the work of Roberto Flores, aka “Dynamaito”, based on the idea of blending the HBO series with Capcom‘s Street Fighter game play. Turned out pretty well. [Geek-Art]
