These pulp covers by TonyFleecs feature iconic Cartoon, Comic and Video Game characters on the covers of Pulp Novels.
Take the internet’s favourite mercenary and put him in Space Marine armour and you get this piece which FonteArt describes as “The perfect combination between madness and badassery”.
Dark Horse have quietly released a press release:
Joss Whedon’s beloved Firefly series and Serenity film’s lifespan may have been short-lived, but managed to produce one of the most dedicated fanbases in the history of modern science fiction. Dark Horse is proud to be able to keep Mal and his crew flying with new comics and products. Look for the hashtag #WheresSerenity over the next few months on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages for exclusive news on the future of the franchise at Dark Horse!
This isn’t the first time Serenity/Firefly comics have been released but it’s nice to know that although we are probably not going to get any more TV shows that the ‘verse still lives on.
Via bleeding cool.
In her words:
SO. Being a woman who’s been “graced” (i use that loosely) with being generously endowed, one of my biggest peeves in the art world is that of improperly drawn boobies. Now i’m not knocking anyone’s knockers in particular, but if you’re trying to draw NATURAL boobies folks, pornos and nudie mags are NOT your best reference sources.
Again, that all goes out the door if that’s the look you’re trying for. But, this is for the folks who want the real thing.

Sadly no longer available, these Leggings from Romwe featured covers of various Batman comics on them. If you were able to invent a time machine and go back far enough for them to be available you could go and get them for $24.
Alternatively you could buy some leggings that they sell right now…
When you meet your wife to be over a conversation about Batman you kind of have to do this right?
Hat tip to @James_a_craig for pointing me to this.
The comic book industry has a long history of sexualizing women, so much so that someone started a project called the “Hawkeye Initiative” which replaces female characters in comic art with Hawkeye from the avengers to show how ridiculous the poses look and of course there are many reasons why showing cleavage is bad for crime fighting.
So it’s refreshing to see these new takes on classic super heroine costumes, by Michael Lee Lunsford, that preserve their modesty while still allowing them to kick ass.
These Valentines Day Cards featuring DC characters are cringeworth, but also quite cool. Also if you want to know why I chose Aquaman as the header image for this post, it’s because I don’t think he gets enough exposure, he’s a dancing master!
I’ve only recently been inducted into the Adventure time cult, but I’ve fast grown to love the show, these episodes have everything that makes adventure time fun, just condensed into an even shorter time span and…
The episodes are to air exclusively online on the Bravest Warriors YouTube channel, and Boom Studios are releasing comics based on the show that you can buy now!
The Art Style is adventure time, the humour is adventure time, the voices are for the most part adventure time, and it has a chip tune theme song, what’s not to like, I’ve embedded the first few episodes here so you don’t have to go anywhere to watch them, you can thank me later.
