Nerd News: Game of Thrones season 3, animated Sherlock, Who photos and more

Vol. 4, Issue 8 (Part 1)

Sorry again for the delay on the important stuff last week, friends. I'd tell you to write letters of complaint to Time Warner Cable, but unfortunately, I doubt it would do much good.

I'm hoping that you haven't already seen much of the following info. But if you did turn to other sources for your nerdy news last week ... I don't want to know. *sniffle*

Today's post features TV, comic/book and gaming news, with some art and miscellaneous fun thrown in. Tomorrow's will cover movies, SCIENCE! and more miscellany and art. Enjoy!

In TV news:

Here are some teasers:

Broadchurch (Included for Tennant and Darvill, natch.)

Also smart. (Thanks, Colt!)


Anyone getting Great Mouse Detective vibes? (I can't decide if Irene's head's on backwards in the last one ...)

OneBluebird's "minds" series is awesome, and his other art is equally great.

In comics/books/audio news:

Cute ladies! I love the mischievous look on Rogue's face.

I feel like I need to make more of an effort to get to know these characters.

I found a couple of items as well:

Donkey Kong mashups!

Karen Hallion really needs to quit it with these Disney Princess/Who combos. They just keep getting better.

The Disney/Who Pocket Princesses are super adorable, too. (Thanks, Kristen!)

And finally, this is so well done. (And the screengrab is hilarious.)

  1. because i don't want to start out with a downer i'm going to save my negative nancy comment for later..... it's later- why the hell is the doctor dressed like willy wonka (good gene wilder willy wonka not hoorible johnny depp willy wonka) the purplue coat is uber distracting.

  2. once again, such a great post! I loved the tv news - i am still skeptical about "the girl meets world" reboot, I just dont see that tone of a show working in 2013, ya know? STILL BMW is one of my all time favorite shows of always, so I will give it a shot :)

  3. Even MORE new Neil Gaiman? Part of me still isn't used to following authors who are still, well, alive, and actively writing things xD

  5. You must know by now that Eleven has the worst taste in fashion ever. ;)



    (And the PB game was actually a board one, but still.)

  6. Thank you! And I feel you on the skepticism. I just feel like I have to include the news here because BMW was such an amazing part of my youth.

  7. That Mondrian TARDIS art is brilliantly amazing...and I'm not even a Whovian.

    I need to get on reading some Gaiman. His stuff has been on my "to-read" list for forever. Any recommendations?

  8. i would play a princess bride tabletop.... if my kids didn't wreck and/or eat it.

  9. Oh my! You definitely must read Gaiman. He's a fantastic storyteller.

    American Gods and Neverwhere are great novels to start with. Coraline is an adorable book with a twist (for a younger crowd) and his co-written book (with Terry Pratchett) Good Omens is a fun twist on ideas from the Book of Revelation.

  10. My sister told me about Whose Line coming back too! Very exciting, but sad for me because Ryan Stiles owns a comedy club in my town and often plays there and if he on a new show, he won't be here as often.

  11. Oh, that would be a bummer. But I'm glad you're OK with sharing him with the world. ;)
