These Norman Rockwell-inspired TMNT illustrations by Bryan Lee are very cute.

OK, yes, some of these “grown up” cartoon character illustrations by Isaiah Stephens aren’t the most believable, but they’re very well done. (And is it weird that I find Roger from Doug kind of attractive?)

  1. Those papercrafts are AMAZING!! And how good does Godzilla look? I was skeptical for a while, but the director they got is actually fantastic and the trailer looks EPIC.

  3. Ohhh Gotham is intriguing me too - though I always think of Ryan from the OC when I see

    Benjamin McKenzie haha.



    Also I love Andrew Garfield :)

  4. This was the first I'd actually seen anything for Gotham (other than reading about it) and it looks pretty intriguing! Those paper crafts are incredible.



    And despite not being a huge Spiderman fan, I kind of adore Andrew Garfield.

  5. The Mister is SUPER excited about Godzilla, since he grew up on the classic movies. I think it looks good, but I'm only really familiar with the one from the late 90s, which was so. bad.

    Also—It's a little weird that Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen are married in it when they play brother and sister in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. That's got to be awkward for them, haha.

  6. DC does so well on TV ... and not that well on the big screen. (Minus the Nolan Batman trilogy and Man of Steel, for the most part.) I'm looking forward to learning more about Gordon pre-Batman.
