11th Doctor Lives in New Comic Book ‘Doctor Who’

- 04-17-14Comics, TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson


It was with a lot of disappointment (and admittedly some jubilation on the other hand) that Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith regenerated into Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi at the end of the Doctor Who Christmas special this past December. And although Capaldi’s adventures as the Time Lord don’t kick off on television till later this year, those already missing space and time fairing with Eleven will be pleased to know that you’ll be able to carry on with the bow-tie clad hero… In comic book form!

In the Toronto area today it was the start of March Break, the Canadian equivalent of spring break, but pre-spring. Today was also the start of Toronto ComiCon, the younger cousin of August’s National Fan Expo and the unofficial kick-off to the Canadian convention season. From as far away as Windsor, London, Kingston and Ottawa, Canadian nerds of all stripes – comics, gaming, sci-fi, anime, and horror – have descended on the Metro Toronto Convention Centre for three days of festivities, including, obviously, the parade of cosplayers on the convention floor. Below, is a gallery of some of the costume all-stars who came out on day 1 and showed off their skill with a needle and thread. (more…)

Running through this Thursday at New York City’s massive Javits Center, the 2014 Toy Fair is nothing short of nirvana for anyone who spends their days dreaming of action figures and other wonderful playthings. The annual event is the definitive gathering spot for industry execs, retailers, journalists and bloggers to learn about everything new in the world of toys.  On Sunday, I had the opportunity to visit Toy Fair and check out what the major retailers — with the notable exception of Mattel and Lego, who never responded to our press requests, snobs — would be rolling out for the rest of this year and beyond. From the jaw-dropping to the unbelievably goofy, here’s my rundown of the best and worst that this year’s event had to offer. (more…)

The BastardCast vs a Tubby Time Lord and Superman Hits the Sauce

- 02-11-14Featured, Nerd Culture Posted by Team Bastard


Most shows make you wait decades for a lost episode (suck it, Doctor Who!) The BastardCast plays by their own rules and releases one mere days after it was thought kidnapped by the forces of evil (faulty Toshiba). Really, it’s a long story involving hard drives and ninjas so we won’t bore you with all the exciting details (there was a car chase! Jason got shot in the knee!)

Joining Jeremy and Jason on this unearthed artifact is long time friend of people he’s known for a long time, Chris Cummins for a rousing hour of fart jokes, geekery and, nerd news from 8 days ago… because all of this stuff STILL MATTERS! (more…)

We’ve all seen this picture. It’s from the set of the currently shooting eighth season of Doctor Who, and it shows Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi, with companion Jenna Coleman, mucking about in Eleven’s old clothes. But fans want to know, what is Twelve’s signature look going to be? Long scarf? Celery stalk? Pinstripes? Bow tie? How about basic black? It worked for Christopher Eccleston, but does it work for Capaldi? You decide! (more…)
