I feel the same way about the stupid logo. ugh.
gimme a couple years though…
“I had a friend who wanted to decorate a room in her house for her husband who is a HUGE Spider-man fan so I made this wall panel for the room. I went with a faux brick wall theme with Spideys villains bursting through the wall! I have The Sandman, The Lizard, Doc Ock and The Green Goblin represented.
Just wanted to add pics of the wall installed in the customers….bathroom! Pretty unusual place but I think it turned out OK”

believe it or not, I have yet to play any of the Assassin’s Creed games. My interest is growing however, and I may step into the world relatively soon…
props to them for using the correct comic books for each phrase.
I have seen this happen while I was at a comic shop. it was both tragic and hiliarious.
seems more hungover than lazy
Please suggest double entendres in the comments.

Feels like a cat to me.

Why does this not come in King size? I would love a set for my own bed 😉
is she even in any comics any more?
Yesterday, I lost my day job. I was fired for some rather dubious reasons, but it boiled down to the fact that someone on the board of directors didn’t like the fact that I had a job, so they lobbied to correct that situation, and thus I find myself wondering how I’m going to make my next mortgage payment, or how I’m going to buy my next beer (answer, no beer until I’m back in the work force).
That being said, now that I’m temporarily unemployed, I’m going to devote much more time to the various websites that I have created and just let coast, including www.internet-d.com www.movieties.com and www.myconfinedspace.com My first task to to create a new “landing page” for mcs. This also means TIMELY posts on internet-d and movieties, so please feel free to visit those sites.
Another thing this means? I’m going to be in the MCS chatroom MUCH more, and I’m going to need people to talk to, so feel free to swing on by. This is going to be a full time gig for a while, so starting 8:30am EST until
I loved the old man’s war series, and this dude did a bunch of concept art for it, in an unofficial manner…
DeviantArt user Joker-laugh created this fantastic custom Aliens Vs. Predator chess set. There doesn’t seem to be any details, but thankfully a number of photos have been posted online – two of which you can check out after the break.
Our DeLorean V2.1 was by far our most popular and highly praised item we have ever offered. But we decided it was time for something new, something sleeker and better built. Our Version 4.0 retains the same smooth hover-mode wheel system that made V2.1 so popular, however it is now wrapped up in a stronger frame while also allowing a lower height to more accurately match the real DeLorean DMC-12.
I had no clue there were custom lego sets out there that you could buy…I think this is going on my wishlist…
Hostess Brands, whose quirky full-page ads for Twinkies, CupCakes and Fruit Pies were a hallmark of American comic books from 1975 to 1982, is expected to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection as early as this week.
this is what happens when you stop advertising in comics.
I think it’s hilarious that there’s still this stigma out there about comic shop owners that seems to imply they’re just little boys running a store and not men trying to make a profit off the crushed dreams of a nerd filled hobby.
Or maybe that’s just my local comic shop that I’m thinking of?
I wish I knew what this was about, the plot seems AMAZING.
Jean-Phillippe Lajoie Dorval (zwiti) was inspired to build this can by the comic book “Les cercles du pouvoir,” which also inspired the film, The Fifth Element.
Ever drink too much and feel like you’ve gone through a portal? Yeah, I think we’ve all been there. So your alcoholic beverages might as well look the part. This drink is made to look like the the two colored portals from the amazing game Portal 2.

Lego sent its team back out to scrutinize girls, starting in 2007. Lego confirmed that girls favor role-play, but they also love to build–just not the same way as boys. Whereas boys tend to be "linear"–building rapidly, even against the clock, to finish a kit so it looks just like what’s on the box–girls prefer "stops along the way," and to begin storytelling and rearranging.
Then there are the lady figures. Twenty-nine mini-doll figures will be introduced in 2012, all 5 millimeters taller and curvier than the standard dwarf minifig. There are five main characters. Like American Girl Dolls, which are sold with their own book-length biographies, these five come with names and backstories. The key difference between girls and the ladyfig and boys and the minifig was that many more girls projected themselves onto the ladyfig–she became an avatar. Boys tend to play with minifigs in the third person. "The girls needed a figure they could identify with, that looks like them," says Rosario Costa, a Lego design director. The Lego team knew they were on to something when girls told them, "I want to shrink down and be there."
The Lego Friends team is aware of the paradox at the heart of its work: To break down old stereotypes about how girls play, it risks reinforcing others.
really? girls wouldn’t play with regular ol’ legos with spaceships, trains, tanks, helicoptors, bears, et al? I find that highly unlikely.
Starring Nicolas Cage, Fergus Riordan, Ciaran Hinds, Violante Placido, Idris Elba and Johnny Whitworth, the February 17 release is directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.
well I went from being moderately excited to being moderately apathetic about this movie. Is that the best plot they could pull from the comics? Was this even a plot from the comics, cause I didn’t read much ghost rider, but it seems like it would have been covered a couple times.

“Jerry Robinson illustrated some of the defining images of pop culture’s greatest icons. As an artist myself, it’s impossible not to feel humbled by his body of work. Everyone who loves comics owes Jerry a debt of gratitude for the rich legacy that he leaves behind.”—Jim Lee, DC Entertainment Co-Publisher and artist of BATMAN: HUSH
“Jerry Robinson was one of the greats. He continued to be a vibrant, creative force well into his nineties, with ideas and thoughts that continue to inspire. Jerry was a great advocate for creators. It was my pleasure to meet and work with him. He will be missed.”—Dan DiDio, Co-Publisher, DC Entertainment
“It’s impossible to work at DC Entertainment without feeling the impact of Jerry Robinson’s contributions to the industry. His influence continues to resonate today.”—Bob Harras, DC Entertainment Editor-in-Chief
“Jerry Robinson was an innovator, a pioneer in storytelling. His artwork was always astonishing, but his contributions to the Dark Knight mythology go far beyond art. The streets of Gotham City are a little lonelier today…Jerry will truly be missed.”—Mike Marts, BATMAN editor
I appreciate their use of the aerial swing camera. it adds so much more action to the performance!
Back in 1997, Nicolas Cage spent $150,000 for a copy of the June, 1938 issue of Action Comics #1, containing the first appearance of Superman. That same issue was stolen from him in 2000 before mysteriously turning up in a San Fernando Valley storage locker in April. The comic was taken as evidence by the police and since then the actual owner of the artifact has been shrouded in mystery.
wait, the joker….is a good guy?
