Rocket Raccoon Solo Series Coming This Summer

rocket-raccoon

If there’s merely one curious element about the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer, it’s how the character of Rocket Raccoon will translate from the comic page to the big screen. If it all goes according to plan, then the folks are going to have a new hero to love, and buy action figures of, just like how everyone loved Iron Man after Robert Downey, Jr. starred in the film of the same name. Of course Marvel, always being smart about corporate synergy, has shrewdly decided to give Rocket his own solo series starting, coincidentally, a month before Guardians‘ big screen bow. (more…)

Above: Sorry for spoiling the final episode of Breaking Bad, but this is how it all ends. Walter White has is a Sith Lord and the last five seasons (according to PJ McQuade) have been leading up to this. Please don’t sue us AMC. [GeekTyrant]

Hit the jump for film noir Assassins Creed, Captain Kirk and more. (more…)

Above: In the battle for who gets to play on the swing set first the winner is Ultron! An Age of Ultron variant cover by Skottie Young, one of Marvel‘s best cover artists, the Marvel babies can’t really beat a robot that never needs a mid-day nap. [GeekTyrant]

Hit the jump for Ben Grimm P.I., Teen Titans and more.

The Shining is one of Stephen King‘s greatest spine chilling thrillers, which was later adapted into a spine chilling motion picture by  Stanley Kubrick.  Now, if you let Marco D’alfonso throw Deadpool in the mix, you’ll have the greatest comedy of the 1980s. No matter how dark and scary Kubrick would have tried to make the movie, Deadpool would have wasted the $19 million budget on rubber chickens and kool-aid. [Comics Alliance]

Hit the jump for Poison Ivy trapping Batman, Community paintball and MOAR!

Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerd based art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every net based nook and cranny. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly Nerd Art Dumps.

Dr. Teeth, Animal, Sgt. Floyd Pepper, Janice and Zoot, the one and only Electric Mayhem -before Lips came in and ruined it with his trumpet. Douglas Holgate made this kick ass looking tour poster that looks to be pulled from our parents closets. This must have been an early in their career though since Zoot is nowhere to be seen, either that or this was during the first of his many drug-related offences. [The House Of Skullduggery]

Hit the jump for the Black Cat, The Avengers as Dragons and MOAR

The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s crazy things like Super Mario “laying pipe” (and we don’t meaning plumping) or a quick glance at Poison Ivy pruning her pussy willow (and we don’t mean gardening). Plenty of things that will leave you in need of years of therapy or a good old fashioned Men in Black style brain scrubbing. Hey, it’s the internet folks. Luckily there is always the counter balance of some mind blowing nerd based art. We collect it, you enjoy it, and we are all better for it.

ABOVE: Rogues mutant power of absorption is a double edged sword. You can look, but can’t touch. Just one caress would probably kill a normal man like you or me. Although by the looks of it, it’d sure as hell be worth it. [Deviant Art]

Hit the jump for an anime Princess Peach, X-babies, Batman in chains and MOAR!

Any Star Wars fan will know exactly what the above splashes of color are- an awesomely and artistically rendered “X-wing Fighter”. Created by Nicholas Hyde as part of a series of recreations of the famous George Lucas franchise, these grungy space ships were turned into amazing works of art. And if your interested in owing your own print by all means head to Nicholas’ etsy page. [Geek Tyrant]

 

Women are awesome. They raise us, teach us right from wrong, and in the case of Natalie Hall, put together some amazing pieces of art like a pro. Just glancing at Natalie’s portfolio you can tell that everything she draws on paper it’s going to be something that has to be seen and shared. So we did. From the oddly creepy Totoro to the almost storybook like take on Princess Merida of Pixar’s upcoming Brave, Natalie has some mad skills. [Comics Alliance]

 

Let’s face it, Princess Peach is just plain cute in her royal garbs, but put her in a  skin tight racing suit and it’s dead sexy! Created by Deviantart artist Twilit-Arawen, this anime version of the Mushroom Kingdom royal is definitely worth a rear-end collision. [Deviant Art]

 

A manly beard, an Aeris tattoo, the severed head of the most hated villain in Final Fantasy history! Artist Gonzalo Ordóñez Arias, a.k.a. Gonzo, took Final Fantasy’s Cloud Strife and an him a straight injection of bad ass and threw the classic gaming character into overdrive. Guess that what happens when you impale a man’s girlfriend after 45+ hours building up her stats. [Kotaku]

 

Everyone’s been a young diaper filling baby at some point, even the mighty X-men, and artist Skottie Young crafted the perfect set of mutant powered children. These kids just look simply adorable, even if each one could kill you- especially the baby Wolverine. Professor X must have armed guards in the nursery during nap time. [TechnaBob]

 

Timothy Lim has shown himself to be one of the most versatile artists we’ve ever seen put pen to paper in recent weeks. With a gift to place pop culture’s best into any style or decade he chooses. Remixing the Avengers into an Art Nouveau masterpiece and mashing the armor of Nintendo‘s Samus with the Autobot commanding Optimus Prime, Timothy is very comfortable bringing his ideas to the table. Check out Lim’s ninjaink account on deviantART for more. [Comics Alliance]

Sure, Dr. Mrs. The Monarch sounds like she’s smoked 5 packs a day for the last decade, but does it really matter if she still has the body of a college cheerleader? Deviant artist Gattadonna used only watercolors and markers to transform this villainous second in command into awesome WWII-esque nose are that would look absolutely amazing on a certain floating cocoon shaped lair. [Deviant Art]

GET A ROOM! Wait, there are clearing in someones basement…. but still. Seriously, this piece by Kevin Nowlan is just another prelude to Batman and Catwoman continuing the love-hate relationship that is purely based on the make-up sex only a hero and a villain can have. At least now we know Robin is a bit of a voyeur. His reaction is pretty priceless though. [Kevin Nowlan]

And finally, you draw science fiction then at some point you’ve probably drawn inspiration from Ralph McQuarrie. Sadly he recently passed away at the age of 84. His concept work for the Star Wars universe is legendary. Ralph is the man who brought to light many of the iconic designs you’ve come to love and without him they would have forever stayed in the dark. Thank you for some of science fiction’s greatest masterpieces Ralph, your one with the force now. [Geek Tyrant]

The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s fuckin’ weird shit like gay Vulcan pr0nz. 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 glory.

First off this week is some paper art by Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann, who call themselves Zim and Zou. This collection, called Back to Basics, consists of models of retro electronics that are hand made with sustainable paper. Every scrap is saved for potential later use. It’s pretty fuckin’ insane. Check out the site for more pictures, and a video detailing their process.

More after the juuuuuuuump!

Adorable and Amazing Baby X-Men Art

Wolvy

Do you remember the X-Babies (X-Men characters re-imagined as babies)? Because I sure do!

They were cute, dangerous and reminded me of the Muppet Babies at some points … but I digress.

Artist Skottie Young has lovingly created his own version of them (see below), and they are absolutely adorable and awesome. My favorite one is Deadpool … what about you?
