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!

While the flux-capacitor hasn’t been perfected, and we can’t help you fix any past holiday humbuggery, maybe we can help you get this holiday season off to a good start.
For the next 12 days (Dec 1st-12th), the staff of Nerd Bastards will be listing a few of their favorite nerdy things. Gadgets, doohickeys, thingamabobs and more – all sorts of items that have been Nerd tested and Bastard approved. Basically, stuff you want, things you need, and everything you can’t have.
We hope you’ll find some unique and nerdtastic gifts among our selections, and that they make their way under your tree, Menorah or Kwanzaa bush.
Hit the jump for Nick Bungay’s list of Nerdful things. Check back tomorrow for Matthew Jackson‘s list. To see archive of this feature, click HERE.
1. Ultimate Kate or Die #1 by Kate Leth
Tattoos, relationships, lesbians and guinea pigs. What does all of this have to do with comics? Everything, that’s what. This collection of comic strips from Nova Scotia artist Kate Leth is on sale now for a steal at $5 a pop, and it’s well worth the price. Featuring strips on everything from cosplay and tattoo etiquette, to the secret relationship between Spider-Man and Deadpool, it’s 32 pages of fun wrapped up in one neat, shelf fitting package. Although, if you live in the Halifax area, just go over to Strange Adventures Comix & Curiosities, they’re always holding a few issues just in case and you might even meet Kate.
MOAR AFTER THE JUMP
As a writer for this site you might think that I’ve shared in most of the experiences that the other Nerd Bastards crew have taken part in, but that would be a misconception. There are a few things I’ve personally never been a part of and one of them is going to a convention. So, this past weekend I took part in the third year of Hal-Con, the largest science fiction convention of its kind in Atlantic Canada.
The event, as I’ve said, is only in its third consecutive year. Having begun back in October of 2010 with an attendance of 1500 people, it quickly expanded to an astounding 4000 visitors the following year. The event has a few staple shows that have since become fan favorites of the young convention, but those I’ll touch on later. For now hit the jump and I’ll give you the story of one nerd’s first convention at this year’s three day event.
They say a picture can say a thousand words, the following says more than that. It says like… a million words, and not just repeating ‘nerds make awesome art’, oh no.
ABOVE: Yes, that is David Tennant as Dr. Who as a Dinosaur. Yes, it is awesome. Artist Peter Foglesong took several of the doctors of Doctor Who and gave them each their own dinosaurific transformation. Check out Peter’s other take on former Who stars in their Dino forms at What an Art. [The Mary Sue]
Hit the jump for more in this weeks Nerd Art Dump!
The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s crazy things like Smurf orgies, a close-up of Bravestar’s tar star, zombie tits and other weird shit. But there are a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis, and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm art lovin’.
