Check out this cool piece of retro-inspired artwork by artist Vladimir Gerasimov (“FullPlateMail” on deviantART) called, simply, “A Tragedy,” depicting the unfortunate consequences of an encounter between Super Mario and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:
(A Terrible Mishap In Manhattan With Super Mario And The Ninja Turtles)
I love the expressions on their faces, especially Splinter, and the fact that Mario’s drawn with a bald spot up top the way he used to look back in his pre-Koopa stomping, Donkey Kong days.
And here’s another piece in a similar vein, although I can’t seem to recall who to credit for the piece.
Can anybody help me identify the artist?
(Mario's About To Get Stomped On)
Looks like Mario’s back to his villainous ways, a la Donkey Kong Jr.
Just got through reading Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith, author of Pride And Prejudice And Zombies; I’ll try to post a review of the book some time soon.
In the meantime, check out this amazing cover:
Cover Art For Time Lincoln Issue 1
As if a vampire hunting Abe Lincoln wasn’t enough, our 16th President once again receives the superheroic treatment in Time Lincoln, a one-shot comic book by Fred Perry!
Here’s the description from the Antarctic Press website:
What happens when the Great Emancipator is suddenly freed from the bonds of time to right wrongs throughout history? On the night of his assassination, Abraham Lincoln’s life is threatened not by an angry actor, but by Void Stalin, the man who is literally the greatest villain of all time! Somehow, Lincoln is destined to wage war upon Void Stalin’s forces of evil in the past, present and future, and the time-traveling tyrant is determined to make sure that never comes to pass! In his last hour, he lived a lifetime!
Here we have a hilarious and ingenious teaser trailer for the Filipino superhero action comedy film Wapakman, directed by Topel Lee and starring boxing champ (and part-time actor) Manny Pacquiao, lead Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, and WWE pro wrestler Batista:
Looking forward to this one.
Considered by many the top pound-for-pound boxer in the world, Manny Pacquiao stars as a father gifted with amazing superpowers.
Judging by the trailer, Manny’s superhero alter ego is either incredibly fast or able to turn invisible and, rather appropriately, packs a mean punch. We’ll just have to wait and see what other cool powers he may possess (the teaser ends with the tagline “Flying Soon”).
Similar in tone to 2004′s Kung Fu Hustle, Wapakman is scheduled to begin filming this month.
