Nerd News: Abe Lincoln: Vamp Hunter, Doctor Who/Star Trek crossover, Samurai Stormtroopers and more

Vol. 3, Issue 7

Lets start this week with amazing and quasi-ridiculous news: There is going to be a Doctor Who/Star Trek crossover in comic form.


Here are a few more details.

And then, because I am SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS GAME, a FemShep trailer for Mass Effect 3.


In TV news:
Here's a trailer for the new MC Chris cartoon. MC Chris—for those not in the know—is a rapper often associated with the nerdcore cuture.


Awww.

Valentine's Day has come and gone, but this was too cute not to share.

These are pretty sweet samurai Star Wars characters.

Just what every nerd needs! 8-bit Star Wars.

Forget Robot Chicken and Family Guy, someone work on this spoof stat.

SCIENCE!

I love that people can keep coming up with new ways of "dressing" the ever-so-cute Disney princesses.

Katie Cook's Wonder Womans are always so stunning.

My Lydia died the other day ... and the quest I'd been working on was so frustrating I didn't bother going back to a previous save.

These prints are awesome. The one of Chell sliding is especially neat, because I'd totally want to do that were I in her position.

Also awesome are the items in the Bruce Loves You Etsy store.

The news that this year's San Diego Comic Con is opening with a lightsaber relay race to benefit the Make-A-Wish foundation makes me even more sad that we'll be missing it again this year. (We're looking into attending New York Comic Con, however!)

This hilarious Tumblr—from Ryan North, creator of Dinosaur Comics—reviews the novelization of Back to the Future.

This is another neat Tumblr, this time of composite photos of well-known literary characters. (Thanks, Wes.)

These videos are lovely covers of nerdy scores. (Thanks, Wes, for reminding me of the Zelda medley.)



It wouldn't be NN without some great minimalist art.

This character math = fantastic.

These cubist paintings are pretty interesting. (Thanks, Rebecca!)

While we're on the topic of fine art ... (Thanks, Wes.)

  4. I really love the idea of the Doctor Who/ST:TNG mash-up comic. I hope it is as spectacular as I think it might be (in my head).

    I need that Dalek propaganda poster to add to the one that I already have. It could be a new decorating theme.

    Also, I need to learn how to paint so I can add characters to cheap paintings. That is amazing.
