Word is starting to make the Internet rounds that Atlanta police have arrested a suspect in the alleged sexual assault that took place earlier this month during Dragon Con. You might remember that police circulated a picture of the suspect in hopes of identifying him. According to Fulton County jail records, Gary Jefferson Hood was arrested yesterday (Thursday) and booked on charges of Aggravated Sexual Battery and Misdemeanor Sexual Battery. (more…)

Sadly I had to skip Dragon Con this year as I was hosting a family get together over the Labor Day Holiday Weekend, but fear not, we’re still going to scour the Internet and find all the most fabulous Dragon Con happenings and bring them to you here. One such item was John Barrowman‘s entrance to his panel at Dragon Con. Suffice it to say that Barrowman knows how to make an entrance, one that will make you smile for the rest of the day, and what better way to wipe away that “I gotta go back to work after a 4 day weekend” feeling?

It’s was a heartening thing being at Fan Expo Canada in Toronto last weekend and not only observing the large “Cosplay is no Consent” signs near the main convention hall, but seeing shutterbugs by and large abide by said sign and asking permission before taking a picture. (Myself included.) Evidently, some of us still need to be taught a lesson. The Atlanta police are rallying the fan community in a “calling all cars moment” as they seek out a suspect that sexually assault a Dragon Con attendee this past Saturday night. There’s a $2,000 reward out for information that leads to the arrest of the suspect, but for fans it’s seems there’s something more at stake: principle. (more…)

The other day, we posted a story about an alternative cameo for Stan “The Man” Lee in the latest Marvel Studios blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy. If you see the movie today, the godfather of Marvel Comics appears in a one scene on the planet Xandar as one of the faces in the crowd, but as James Gunn revealed at Dragon Con last weekend, he had a different idea about Lee’s cameo, but it never came to pass. Well, the director has come forth to reveal that it did, in fact, come to pass. Sort of. Thanks to the power of social media, Gunn got to clarify his comments, with art! (more…)

There have been a lot of great Stan Lee cameos: his “so fired” security guard from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the “Hef” moment from Iron Man, and playing one of his own characters – mailman Willie Lumpkin – in the first Fantastic Four movie. But this news, if it is to be believed, would have meant the best Stan Lee cameo thus far in any Marvel movie would have been in the studio’s latest hit. That is, if the idea hadn’t of been shot down. Unfortunately, even for a film like Guardians of the Galaxy that took a great many chances, this cameo was not meant to be. (more…)

The appreciation of cosplay is very near and dear to the heart of Nerd Bastards. Whether it be expertly crafted, drop dead gorgeous, simple yet witty, or all of the above–we love it.

Isn’t that how Harley Quinn got mentally twisted? I don’t think Charlie Brown can handle a Harley Quinn / Lucy hybrid. She won’t just be yanking a football out from Charlie Brown.
