Lamarr Banner

by Alison H. Mayer

We had the chance to sit down with Phil LaMarr at this year's Denver Comic-Con and talk to him a little bit about his illustrious voice acting career...turns out that he actually does every voice on 'Futurama' except Hermes. Seriously, even Leela.

Villains Day Off Banner

by Alison H. Mayer

So, what DO villains do on their day off?

A lot of pretty banal stuff, according to artist Kiersten Essenpreis. Her prints -- which hypothesize what evil-doers do when they're not doing evil -- feature a number of beloved villains, including Michael Myers, Alien, the Joker, and Jason Bateman. Each print illustrates a villain (or villainess!) in a decidedly boring, sometimes trending towards the violently mundane, scene. Read More...

There must be money lining the walls of Bluth’s Original Frozen Banana stand because Netflix was just giving away the chocolate-covered goodness today in New York City.

To celebrate 15 new episodes of cult comedy “Arrested Development,” premiering May 26 on Netflix, the on-demand Internet streaming company brought the big yellow banana stand from the show on a road trip from the Oceanside Wharf on Balboa Island to right across the street from Radio City Music Hall. OK, so this is just a replica of the stand from the show, but after it debuted in London last week, this is the first U.S. stop for the Bluth family business on a tour around the country leading up to the new season.

What if a "Calvin and Hobbes" movie was directed by "Donnie Darko's" Richard Kelly? It might look a little something like this.

Last week we told you about the Lucha Libre takeover of the entertainment industry. Now, it looks like politics are next.

The people of Oita City voted masked wrestler Skull Reaper A-ji into office to serve them as their lucha libre representative of justice and zoning ordnances. But his fellow council members have banned A-ji to further meetings until he violates the most basic tenet of lucha libre: they want him to shed his precious mask.

The folks behind "Epic Rap Battles in History" have pitted Gandhi against Martin Luther King, Bruce Lee against Clint Eastwood, Darth Vader against Hitler, and more. But now, patent powerhouse Thomas Edison is going head-to-head with genius mad man Nikola Tesla in a shockingly awesome, and electrifying (natch) rap faceoff.

cardIn light of the recent controversy surrounding DC Comics' move to hire well-known anti-gay marriage activist Orson Scott Card to pen a new "Superman" series, and artist Chris Sprouse's exit from the title, we figured it'd be fun to poke a little fun at the situation while trying to figure out what happens behind closed doors when companies like DC and Marvel make decisions like this.

Who's idea was this really?

And more, importantly...is this next?

And the wildfire's green glare, the Davos' son bursting in air, gave proof through the night, that King's Landing was still there.

Similar to last season's ninth episode "Balon", where Lord Eddard Stark gets his head lopped off (spoiler alert?), the ninth episode of this season titled "Blackwater" is one that leaves pretty much everyone floored. The wildfire explosion has to rank up there as one of the top "swag" moments of the show, right there with Daenerys' dragons first appearing, Viserys getting his golden crown, and the just mentioned beheading of Ned. In other words: It. Was. AWESOME!

It's been a long time coming, but overall we feel HBO did a solid job at adapting the Battle of The Blackwater for television. Of course we also have a few gripes, so lets get into things.

Oh, hey, sorry we missed last week (and that we're late this week). We were off in the shade on vacay, making pina coladas pay the Iron Price. But we're back and feeling refreshed, though we still haven't gotten all the sand out from the wetness between our legs yet.

War is almost upon us in the Game of Thrones universe, and we're getting a little antsy. Not a whole lot has been happening lately, but we know it's all been a setup for the final two episodes (hopefully). Theon and his Iron Island posse are still hanging out in Winterfell when Yara comes rolling in, pissed off that Theon allegedly murdered the Stark boys.

Jake Busey Says Hi

This season of Game of Thrones has been heavily focused on expanding the world of Westeros and beyond the Narrow Sea. We've met a ton of new characters so far, but surprisingly a lot of the old characters have done a good job at staying alive. That was until last night, when last week's cliffhanger (Melisandre's vagina shadow) crept into Renly's tent and drove a blade through his back, to the horror of both Brienne and Catelyn Stark. Huge plot twist, especially since it sounded like Renly was leaning towards making peace with Robb. Just a heads up from two guys who have read the books, don't expect anything you want to happen in this story to actually happen because George R. R. Martin will never do it. We won't elaborate on what we mean by that, but in a few years when the show is all said and done, you'll get it.

Well we made it through another Spring Sunday and if you're reading this that means two things: One, you probably survived some torrential rainfall (it was really coming down shadowcats and dire wolves in NYC, are we right?) and two, we 'received' a new episode of HBO's Game Of Thrones where characters corrected each others' pronunciation and grammar, and the show producers 'corrected' George R.R. Martin's apparently too straight forward plotting. And that's weird, because what happens in the books still happens (like the big things), they just keep changing how those big things happen, and we're not sure why. Anyway, let's see where we're at after the fourth episode from Game Of Thrones Season 2, 'Garden Of Bones'.

Rich Burlew millionaireIf you've been keeping tabs on the comic book scene over at fundraising site Kickstarter then you may have noticed a sharp uptick in the number of comic projects lately.  Last year, the all-girl rock band comic anthology, “Womanthology”, raised an astounding $109, 301.  But wizards and trolls are not ones to just roll over and be outdone.  So this past February, Rich Burlew’s D&D webcomic spoof “Order of the Stick” made a go of it with a modest goal of just over $57k and ended up raising over $1.2 million.  Yes, you read that right, $1.2 MILLION.

Now you might think “HOLY $#!T, I need to get my project on Kickstarter!” And you’d be right to think that, comic projects have been getting fully funded left and right.  Then you might think “what the #^@% would I spend all that money on, since I don’t need anywhere near that to make a comic book.”  And again, you’d be right.

We’re not sure how much thought Rich has put into how to spend his newfound wealth, but if you're reading this Rich, here are a few humble suggestions, aside from, you know, giving it all to us.
