Let me ask you a question, weekend ComicsAlliance reader: Do you like teenage mutants? Okay, good. Do you also like ninja turtles? Awesome. Okay, now bear with me for a second, because this is where it gets weird: Do you also like detailed anatomical dissections of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?
If you answered "yes" to that last one, and I'm going to go ahead and acknowledge that you may not have, then you are in luck. Today, we are taking a look at Nychos, an artist who specializes in anatomical takes on animals -- including the TMNT! So steel yourself, and read on for a look at a few of our favorites, guts and all.
If you can think back to the hazy days at the start of this century, there's three things you might recall about the cultural zeitgeist of the time. One: Buffy The Vampire Slayer was at the peak of its popularity, anchoring the relatively new WB network with its combination of teen drama and supernatural superheroics. Two: '70s nostalgia was hitting critical mass, as evidenced by the fact that we got twoCharlie's Angels movies. Three: Thanks to the success of the X-Men and Blade movies, live-action superheroics were starting the upswing in public interest that would lead to now, a time when we have nine friggin' movies about the Avengers.
Obviously, these three threads had to come together at some point, and some bright-eyed young executive at the WB hit on the idea of exactly how to do it: reviving Sid and Marty Kroft's Electra Woman and Dyna Girl as a cynical parody of superheroes, starring Night Court's Markie Post as a washed-up heroine dragged back into the game by a very chipper high school student. As you might expect, it didn't pan out, but the magic of the internet has allowed us to watch the 14-minute pilot.
With Captain America: The Winter Soldier and TheAmazing Spider-Man 2 in theaters now and an X-Men movie just around the corner, we are once again in the midst of the summer superhero movies, and that can mean only one thing: It's Infographic Season! Yes, we are once again at the mercy of those easily digestible fact sheets with slightly dubious information, designed to go viral just like some horrifying apocalyptic disease created in a lab by a mad scientist.
Oh c'mon, I'm kidding. But really, when you put something up and claim that it's "Every Costume Spider-Man Has Ever Worn," like Mashable did this week, you're just asking for some dork to come along and correct you. And today, my friends, I am that dork.
Listen, I'm going to be real with you for a second: I love 1980s action movies more than I love most members of my own family. I mean, hell, if we're talking about Die Hard, I love that movie more than I love pretty much every member of my own family (sorry mom). So when I saw Josh Cooley's series of illustrations where he turns movies like Die Hard, Predator and Road Warrior into Golden Books style storybook pages, my first thought was utter delight.
Well, no, that's a lie. My first thought was "Where's Commando?" but then came the delight, I assure you. Check out a few of our favorites below!
Last Friday, the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum at Ohio State University opened an incredible pair of exhibits featuring the art of Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson and Cul de Sac creator Richard Thompson, and I don't think I have ever wanted to go see an art exhibit more. Curators Jenny Robb and Caitlin McGurk have assembled an incredible collection of original art from Calvin and Hobbes organized by season, as well as Watterson's actual tools of the trade, featuring hilarious commentary by the man himself. Unfortunately, like many people in this world, I am nowhere near Columbus, Ohio.
The good news, however, is that the filmmakers behind Dear Mr. Watterson, a documentary about Calvin & Hobbes and its impact, were in attendance snapping pictures so that the rest of us could live vicariously through them. Check out a few of our favorites below!
