Droogy Brown

After one too many times of Lucy pulling out the football from him, Charlie Brown snapped and went ultra-violent, but he was still a blockhead. (Mike Capp)

Game Of Mortal Thrones: Daenerys Targaryen Vs. Robert Baratheon

It's a good matchup, but I think I have to give it to Robert and his warhammer. If it could take out Rhaegar, it should be able to handle Daenerys — at least until her dragons grow larger. (Roberto Flores via Geek-Art)

Stephen King Superheroes?

The greatest villains of Stephen King's novels (was Carrie really a villain?) team up to battle The Dark Tower's Roland Deschain. Wait, what? Are they even all from Maine? No matter, I love the idea of an Avergers style (or League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, for that matter) gathering of King's characters. (Phillip Sevy for The Line It Is Drawn)

Jazz Age Justice League

The Justice League of America as a 1920's crime-busting team, by Alex Mitchell, is the bee's knee's, the cat's pajamas, no jive! (Click through for the backstories) And I love Wonder Woman as a flapper - someone should claim this as their next Halloween costume, immediately. (via Comics Alliance)

You Will Never Find A More Wretched Hive Of Scum And Villainy

Wow, I really need to pause that scene of the Mos Eisley Catina again, I never realized how many familiar aliens (prawns, Alf, Zoidburg, E.T., etc), ghosts (Beetlejuice) and oddities (flying monkeys) were in the background. Guess I was too busy watching Han Solo shoot first! (Mos Eisley Cantina by Andy MacDonald)

It's All In The Game (Of Thrones)

"It ain't what you takin', it's who you takin' from, ya feel me? How you expect to run with the wolves come night when you spend all day sparring with the puppies?"

Game of Thrones meets The Wire. I let out an audible "Yes!" when I came across Matt Leunig's It’s All In The Game. So much win.

Peter Paul Rubens' Batman Charity

Hillary White continues to educate me on classic paintings (this one based on Peter Paul Rubens' Roman Charity) and also traumatize me. Well done. (Batman Charity, for  Bottleneck Gallery's The Gang Is All Here)

Rated G: Terrible Cartoons That Shouldn't Happen

Who wouldn't want to see Saturday morning cartoon of Conan the Barbarian, Fargo or Fight Club? Ok, probably not many, but I would, and so would Justin White, who drew animated scenes from 30 movies for Rated G at Gallery 1988.

James Bond And The Prisoner Of Skyfall

Ah! It never occurred to me that Voldemort is now the head of MI6! So of course Harry Potter is 007's next target. And the stag - who's patronous is it, Bond's on Potter's? Two orphans, are they family? (Pop Smoothie)

50 Years Of James Bond: The Movie

Does five minutes each of 22 James Bond movies strung together, make a new, coherent 007 adventure? Yeah, it kind of does, which says something about the formula of the films but also speaks to the success of the franchise over 50 years.

The Bond films have always adapted to the times and the popular themes of the time. Live and Let Die followed Shaft, Moonraker followed Star Wars, Daniel Craig's gritty Bond followed Matt Damon's Jason Bourne and now Skyfall follows The Dark Knight. As my colleague Natalie Atkinson writes, "every generation gets the James Bond it deserves."

Skyfall fits perfectly into the 007 oeuvre, moving the story along while finding a place within it. And as it was the first of the series to be filmed in IMAX, that's how we went to see it. Today a viewing experience can be on an iPhone screen or a really large TV in your living room — but you cannot replicate the experience of watching a film on a screen the size of 2-3 story house. I love filling my field of vision in a theatre, but this goes well beyond as your eye cannot see the edges of the screen, so you follow where the director wants you to go. Awesome.

And with Craig signed on for at least two more films, I'll be seeing my favourite secret agent for years to come.  (Video via Nerdist)

Direwolf, Direwolf, What Do You See?

"If Westeros had a picture book to teach preschoolers the house sigils and words, Eric Carle would write and illustrate it. Inspired by Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?"

Now that I'm most of the way through A Storm of Swords, the third book in the Game of Thrones, I think this series could have been very helpful. I don't know if mrstater created this, but it's as close as I could find.
