Bravest Warriors: Animated Space Adventure Series by the Creator of Adventure Time

Bravest Warriors

I spent my evening last night watching these 5 minute episodes of Bravest Warriors, the new animated space adventure by Pendleton Ward the creator of Adventure Time.

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…

IN SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!

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.

Escape From Friend Zone Game

I quite enjoyed a walk through the slightly cynical game, it’s essentially a choose your own adventure of dating, I got through it and thought I had escaped the dreaded friend zone but I didn’t. 🙁

Mahmud A. Asrar: Steampunk and other stuff…


Steam Punk Super Girl

Given half a chance I’d blog everything I’ve seen by comic book artist Mahmud A Asrar , I went through his deviant artist gallery and… Well yeah… He is as far as I can tell an artist working for DC comics probably on Super Girl given she takes up most of his gallery. Here are some steam punk images and some other random tid bits, I’d recommend looking at his gallery if you like there is a lot more wher that came from.

Mental BatWoman

What Batwoman is this!?

I saw this strip and wanted to read the comic, but before I even got a chance to look up the source I noticed that somone had pointed out in the comments that it’s from an issue of Justice Leage (JLA #91) where Wonder Woman uses a machine to find out what would happen if she and batman were to have a kid. Apparently the rest of the issue is rubbish though…

I’d read a comic where the heroes were this mental… Actually I am reading a comic where the heroes are this mental as I’ve recently started reading “The Boys” arguably the “heroes” in the The Boys are more like villains…

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1988

If there was no copyright law to infringe on this would be amazing!

When war-hero-turned-handyman Kesuke Miyagi is found drained of blood, it becomes clear that the occult gang known as the Lost Boys are targeting the only individuals that can stop them from complete domination of America. It’s the perfect case for the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen–except that their government contact, Oscar Goldman, disbanded the team in 1979 after they defeated Mr. Han’s army of the living dead.

Now, disgraced scientist Emmet Brown has to put together a new team to combat the growing threat of the Lost Boys and their leader, a newly resurrected vampire kingpin Tony Montana: Transportation specialist Jack Burton, ex-commando B.A. Baracus, tech wizard Angus MacGyver and the mysteriously powerful femme fatale known only as “Lisa.” But will Brown be able to stop the Lost Boys before time runs out?

I really enjoyed the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comics, the film not so much. Unfortunately this April Fool prank is to never be. But somewhere someone is writing a Fan Fic…

Graphic Novel: Burke and Hare

I’d love for this to be a review, it’s not, I’ve not even ordered this yet but I plan on doing so as soon as my pay check come in at the end of the month.

A graphic novel illustrated by one of my friends “Pix” (Will Pickering) is being released on the 3rd of October, in the mean time you can preorder it on Amazon.

Or alternatively you can watch the trailer on You Tube:

I’ve known Pix for 11 years and this could be his big break, so support a local artist. Pix put a ridiculous ammount of effort into the art, spendign days hunting down the likenesses of even incidental characters who appear in the story. Seeing him work on this has made me appreciate how much effort goes into making a comic.

As a side note Pix ran for the rectorship of Glasgow University a few years back, he lost to Ross Kemp, who later resigned, Pix would have done a better job.

‘Burke & Hare’ is published by Insomnia Publications. Written by Martin Conaghan, art by Will Pickering. Cover by Rian Hughes, introduction by Judge Dredd writer Alan Grant. Gallery art by Frank Quitely, Gary Erskine et al

It’s priced at £12.99
