New He-Man Comic From DC

It looks like DC are going to be breathing new life into the He-Man franchise by releasing a 6 issue mini-series. Written by James Robinson, pencils by Philip Tan and inks by Ruy Jose.

When I was a kid He-Man was my one dimensional hero of choice until I discovered Transformers, I devoured the books and TV show. It looks like they are going to be add a little bit more depth to the series though, the plot synopsis actually looks interesting:

In the new series, Robinson reintroduces the Masters of the Universe® to comic readers with Skeletor having won a major victory and rewriting the world of Eternia where he now rules from Castle Grayskull and the Masters have no memory of their former glory. Adam is a simple woodsman haunted by dreams of a heroic warrior, wielding a powerful sword in battle. He is found by a mysterious sorceress who tells him his dreams are of the way the world should be, that he is Eternia’s champion He-Man. Adam sets off on a quest to regain his power and reawaken the Masters of the Universe.

Here’s hoping… I might actually make a trip to my local comic shop and pick this one up.

LEGO fuses Evangelion and Gundam

I’ve never been a fan of Gundam, not because I dislike it for any reason, I’ve just never watched it, I do however like Neon Genesis Evangellion, and who doesn’t like Lego? This model combines all three of the above, with a hybrid Eva/Gundam mech made out of Lego. How can any sane geek not love that?

<p>&#8220;Tatakae Chou Samurai Seimeitai&#8221; is a ukiyo-e wood block print from around the Sengoku era. This particular design tells a warrior’s tale of an epic battle between good and evil, one that carries over into the modern day. Though this appears to be a typical feud between opposing samurai, there is more to this print than meets the eye.</p><br /><br />

One of the most iconic scenes of the original Transformers TV show was the battle between Optimus Prime and Megatron on top of the Hoover Dam. Artist NinjaInk whose work I’ve posted here before has recreated this scene by replacing the main characters with samurai armour.

You can buy this T-Shirt from RedBubble for £16. This isn’t the first time I’ve posted a Transformers Samurai crossover, although the style here is completely different to the one in the image I posted by creatureBox.

Update: I should have skimmed through NinjaInks gallery before posting this, I’ve found a similar image with Snake Eyes and whoever the white ninja in Cobra was from G.I.Joe/Action Force:

Ukiyo-e woodblock depiction of a centuries-old dual between rival members of a ninja clan. The work is considered anachronistic, considering that ancient Japanese laser uzis would not be invented until years later.<br />

Portal Sneaker Boots

I’ve always thought that the Converse style “sneaker boots” you can get look cool but I’m not sure I could pull them off, or put them on for that matter as I have calves the size of… Well very big things…

These Portal Sneaker boots by artist Jared Sellers are pretty cool, what is it about adding a little blue and orange to a design and putting the Aperture science logo on things that makes them infinitely cooler? For some reason anything Portal is cool on the internet these days, I’m not about to argue, because my first reaction was “COOL PORTAL SNEAKER BOOTS!” and not “Oh no not another artist trying to rip off Portal” so there you have it…

Princess Peach Apron

These Nintendo themed aprons by Janeille on Etsy are quite cool, you can get a Princess Peach one (above) a Zelda One or a Links One (both below). They are one of a kind made to order apparently so I assume you can have whatever customizations you want added to them.
