Space Oddity: The Book

Andrew Kolb has taken David Bowie's Space Oddity and turned it into an illustrated children's book, full of bright, happy folk. Well, at least until the end. I don't think I could read it to my kid without having to answer some uncomfortable questions, but it looks beautiful. Comics Alliance has the whole book on their site and you can download it here.

Where's WALL-E?

While I did locate WALL-E, I was pleased to see Marvin the Paranoid Android, Twiki from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Muffit form the original Battlestar Galactica, Futurama's Calculon and, too my great pleasure, Mr. Butlertron from Clone High. Wesley! (Where’s WALL-E? by Richard Sargent; link via The Daily What Geek)

8-Bit Breaking Bad

The inclusion of Victor under the ATM machine is a nice touch. Click through for the full character legend. We started watching Breaking Bad this summer and caught up just in time to realize we'd missed the first three episodes of the new season. Arrggghhhh! (Breaking Bad iotacons by Andy Rash)

I Want To Believe. Wocka, Wocka, Wocka!

Fox Mulder meets Fozzie Bear. You know? It totally works. I think Janice, the guitarist from Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem would make a good Scully for him. (Fozzie Mulder by Amy Mebberson)

Pop Culture Dads BBQ

With father figures like these, you are going to be one messed up kid. Dads by Nathan Stapley for his upcoming solo show at Gallery 1988.

Zombies VS. Unicorns

Sure the zombies might get a few unicorns due to sheer numbers, but in the end the unicorns would decimate them. Unless... zombie unicorns! (Josh Cochran; link via Nicole Sgueglia)

8-Bit Pulp Fiction

Andy Rash's Iotacons are extremely low-res full-body portraits of celebrities and characters from pop culture. They are usually no more than 25 pixels high, and end up looking like they walked out of an early video game. (From Fuel Your Illustration's interview with Rash)
