Nerd News: Gallifreyan translator, new HP cover, Spider-Man tees and more

Vol. 4, Issue 6

Happy Valentine's Day, friends! Consider this issue of NN (and all of the others) as my way of sending lots of nerdy love your way. And if you're still in need of a last-minute Valentine or two, don't forget about these.

In TV news:

Here are a couple of promos:

Game of Thrones

With this translator, there's now an easy (but not guaranteed accurate) way to write your name in Gallifreyan! Here's mine:

Karen Hallion is continuing with her Doctor Who/fairytale/Disney series. (Thanks, Rebecca.)

In movie news:

Here are a few trailers and a clip:

Jack the Giant Slayer

Monsters University

Oblivion

I am loving the gritty/lonely feel of these superhero posters. (Thanks, TCC!)

Threadless has a new Spider-Man collection (not all of which are featured here). (Someone needs to mention to them that there's a hyphen in the name ...)

In gaming news, from TGG:

This Mario would have a killer soundtrack.

This is an impressive live-action 60-second Wreck-It Ralph. (Don't watch if you want to avoid ruining the movie for yourself ... like I did.)

In comics and book news:

Wookie and the Chew artist James Hance painted these amazing watercolors of the Firefly/Serenity crew in only two days.

These are lovely versions of familiar characters.

In SCIENCE! and tech news, from The Mister:

I found a few things as well:

  3. I recommend the Tom Baker era story The Key to Time. If you need a place to start. It was the most like the 9+ era of the old show.

  4. I'm interested to see what they do with Delirium as a tv show. SO many YA books are being turned into movies/shows now, it's crazy!!

    Those b&w superhero posters are freaking AMAZING!! I love, love, love the Hulk one.


    And wow! How awesome are those Firefly watercolors?! So close to reality!
