Issue 1, Vol. 4

Welcome to the first issue of the fourth volume of Nerd News! It's a biggun. (I apologize if some of this is old news; I had a few links saved prior to break.)

But first:

The Star Wars/Disney mashups haven't gotten old yet, particularly when they're this cute.

I am also quite impressed with these one-line illustrations.

I'm posting these Justice League monies in large part so that I can quote the comment on the missing dollar made by the io9 author: "If you're wondering where the $1 bill is, I assume Malik [the artist] started to turn George Washington into Aquaman, realized what he was doing, and immediately gave up."

These iPhone cases are totally impractical, yes, but yet ... I want them to make a Loki one really badly. (Some are currently on sale—for iPhone 4/4S—on Fab.com!)

In SCIENCE! and technology news, from The Mister:

I found some items as well:

Love these Whedon ladies.

In gaming news, from TGG:

Nerdy art nouveau never gets old.

(via)

Neither do fakey propaganda posters. (Thanks, Rebecca.)

In miscellaneous news:

These silhouettes are super similar to some Olly Moss did, but I like them regardless.

(via)

These sculptures, however, are super unique.

(via)

These are great, too.

And finally: Although I've never actually seen an episide of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, I can't get enough of movie trailer mashups made with the show.

  1. I'm really looking forward to The Last Guardian film. It has the potential to be the first movie based on a video game that doesn't suck.

    1. I hope it's good! I hate being totally let down by adaptations.

  2. I recognized three, maybe four, of the "Whedon ladies", so I'm pretty proud of myself.
    Because of that last video, I feel I must share that I recently discovered a web series based on (well, using) the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic show called Friendship is Witchcraft. It's basically the episodes with new dialogue, and some slight editing. It's hilarious. http://www.youtube.com/user/SherclopPones/videos?view=0&flow=grid

  3. Dude. So. Much. To Flail about in this post. The Walking Dead, Gatsby, Doctor Who, Oz: The Great and Powerful, Hansel & Gretel, Wall-E art... Love it. Though I am a tad concerned about what it means for the show that Glen Mazarra is jumping ship. Thanks for this lovely post.

    1. They're so large, but so adorable. And I hope the movie does it justice! IT looks like it's going to be delightful, at least visually.
