Nerd News: Doctor Whooves, Harry Potter propaganda, Mass Effect babies and more

Vol. 3, Issue 16

Hullo friends! I had someone email me recently asking for information on a set of illustrations I posted in a previous NN. I try to link to whenever I've found the images I share, and if you're curious for more info, all you need to do is click on the (via) link underneath the images.

In movie news this week:

A few trailers/clips:

The Amazing Spider-Man

(via)

The Avengers

Prometheus

(via)

Looper

Not that we have any free wall space left in the Murtis 2.0, but I'd really like to hang this series on my wall.

This drawing makes me feel all the feels.

Mondo will be releasing a series of posters of all of The Avengers characters prior to the movie. Here are the first two: Black Widow and Hawkeye.

More Avengers minimalism.

This cartoon style makes for some interesting reinterpretations of characters we all know and love.

Speaking of reinterpretations of characters we all know and love ...

A clip from True Blood, season 5:

Pretty sonics.

More Doctor Whooves!

From TGG:

While I've never played any of the Resident Evil games, I do love me some Legion. (Thanks, Wes!)

(via)

Love this cartoon version of the Mass Effect crew. (But why are Kaiden and Ashley both alive?)

(via)

I've never wanted to snuggle a Krogan as badly as I do right now!

(via)

SCIENCE!

Lovely Leia.

(via)

BABY CHEWIE!

I didn't think Darth Vader could look more bug-like, but this proves it's possible.

I like these images a whole lot. Makes me feel like splashing watercolors around to see what I can come up with.

This triptych would look so great on a dark red wall.

In book news:

This series of "Come with a story and leave with another" posters are super smart (and awesome!).


(via)

In an alternate universe, the Death Eaters reign and Harry and the crew are on the run.

Do you know what fictional character you share a birthday with? This calendar will let you know. I share mine with Henry Jones, Sr. Not too shabby.

And finally, the only thing that could make this better was it if it was an 'N Sync song.

    Awesome Nerd News! I love the alternate universe HP wanted posters. Very cool. Got some stuff to pin!

    1. Of course not! I'm flattered. :D

      1-Yes. (It's actually in this post, haha.) I'm excited.
      2-Yes! I read something about Clive Owen maybe not being in it and I got the sads. Let's hope that's not true.
      3-Haha, yeah. Supposedly, though, the actor who plays said character said it's not true at all. So there's that.
      4-I definitely like the feel of the trailers, but I still think it's too soon for a reboot. However, I agree that Andrew looks to be an awesome Peter.
      5-We traded in our Skyrim for ME3, and I wish I had it back now.

    1. Aren't they? I searched for the Hermione one to no avail, which was kind of disappointing.

  6. It feels totally wrong to fancy young Longbottom the way I fancy him. And the last video made my day! Have a happy weekend! x
