This is a fantastic idea for a James Bond film. From ninjaink: "Only the Good Die Twice is a spy story set within the fictional James Bond universe. Through the prologue, it is revealed that the name "James Bond" is the codename for agents with 007 status and that the original James Bond from the Cold War (played by Sean Connery in a returning role) has gone rogue and is now the head of SPECTRE. The current Bond is tasked by MI6 to stop him before he can initiate a global thermonuclear war."
Daniel Craig vs Sean Connery? That would be awesome!
Of course the down side is that the Grinch never learns his lesson, his heart never grows three sizes and he continues to terrorize the Who's for years,because nobody that gets caught by a superhero ever seems to remain in captivity. (How the Grinch Sto.... by Michael Delmundo, via Comics Alliance)
These are two Breaking Bad mashups I've had sitting around, finally getting to them. Above: Jeff Matsuda, producer and creative director on The Batman, drew a pile of mashups for an awesome Reddit thread. Below, Dann Matthews brings The Muppets into the world of meth, where I'd always assumed they'd been for the past few years.
There are enough Batman characters to make their own Last Supper? Clearly, yes. It's times like this that I have to admit my comics knowledge is puddle deep. Apparently that is Nightwing in the Judas position, but wasn't who the artist, Glasmond, had intended. Anywho the Latin translates to family comes before all things or family over everything. (The last thanksgiving batfam supper by Glasmond)
You just know they had to be a little bitter. Sure, they're famous, but they're not stars like The Muppets. And before anyone points out that they are all Muppets, including Yoda and the Fraggles, when anyone says The Muppets, they mean The Muppet Show.

A brain, a beauty, a jock, a rebel and a recluse. A great rendition of the Breakfast Club as the Archies, bit I think Mike Perkins got the characters around.
If anyone should be playing Molly Ringlwald (and sorry, I don't think of them by their character names) it should be Veronica, not Betty. Spoiled rich girl? That's Veronica.
Reggie as Emilio Estevez seems to work but he really should be playing Judd Nelson while Archie should be be Estevez. He's always wearing a letterman jaclket. And Jughead should be playing Ally Sheedy, so that makes Betty the nerdy Anthony Michael Hall. (Via 50 Archie Covers)
What if Calvin grew up to be a secret agent? You don't have to wonder, Coran Stone has done it for you: "I thought of Calvin as a boy who grew into a man and never gave up on imagining himself as different characters."
Robert Ball has completed his Fifty Goodies project, depicting many of cinemas most iconic good guys (and women, robots and animals.) Prints are for sale at his shop, check back Ball's site for a list of the goodies.
Some of Nathan Stapley's recent pieces for Gallery 1998 are up for sale as prints, letting me revisit one that I didn't get around to posting — Robotic Companions. I really like the look of his work, especially when it involves 15 awesome robots.
Where have the Muppets been since we last saw them? Trying out for some of the most popular TV and movies of the past few years. Sam the Eagle as Don Draper is perfection. (Steve Murray for National Post)
What better way to commemorate the 48th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination than an 8-bit recreation of of Jack Ruby shooting Lee Harvey Oswald? Yeah, take that Stephen King. (Iotacons by Andy Rash)
Who wouldn't want to see a live performance of Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem? I've been a fan ever since hearing Can You Picture That in The Muppet Movie. Barring that ever coming true, I will have to satisfy myself with Michael De Pippo's Dr. Teeth concert posters, available at Acme Archives.
This is exactly how they should update Pigs In Space — parodies of classic space movies. (Open Sesame by Eric Fan via Geek-Art - though the link seems to have disappeared. Muppets getting heavy-handed with the copyright?)
I was never a fan of Iron Maiden but I was always intrigued by their artwork and the character Eddie. So what could make him even cooler? Augie Pagan's Animal Unleashed from his Lowbrow Candy Store show with Dave MacDowell.
I said I was done with Bill Murray postings. I lied. They keep pulling me back in! But this isn't from the Please Post Bills show, but another Gallery 1988 show called Ghosts and featuring one of my favourite artists, Scott Campbell. Also, the scene of Venkman and Slimer is sooo touching.
I loved illustrator Kyle Hilton's paper doll set of the Arrested Development cast and was excited to hear that he was making a set for Breaking Bad.
But as the set was commissioned by the show, he had to keep it under wraps. Lucky for us, he has given a sneak preview on his website. Here is Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. The rest are on his site, unless he has taken/been told to take them down.
