Choose X-Men Life

Choose your future. Choose life . . . But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life: I chose something else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got heroin?

Begbie is Wolverine and Renton is Cyclops? Yeah, I think that's a decent characterization. I can't really speak for the other three X-Men. Anyone? (New X-Men by George Sarell, via Comics Alliance)

Arkham Mad Men

"It's simple. We, uh, kill the Batman."

Two-Face - Roger Sterling
Harley Quinn - Peggy Olson
Joker - Don Draper
Riddler - Pete Campbell
Poison Ivy - Joan Holloway

I'm pretty good with that matchup, even though I think it gives too much credit to Pete. (Bill Walko for The Line It Is Drawn)

Return Of The Great Pop Culture Showdowns

It's been awhile since I've posted one of Scott Campbell's showdowns, but he has a new show on at Gallery 1988 with over 200 new ones, so I couldn't resist. Above are eight of my favourites — check the show for the rest. Also, I love that he did one of Delicatessen!

The Tragic Tale Of A Space Invader

I had no idea how complex of a life space invaders lived. Almost makes me feel bad about how many I've killed... Almost. (Ehud Lavski via Geek-Art)

Spaceman Spiff: I Want To Believe

I DO want to believe in Spaceman Spiff! Also, it's nice to see some fan art of Calvin and Hobbes that doesn't have him pissing on something. (Dann Matthews)

Murphy Delivers The Law

There are only three Robocop commandments: 1. Serve the public trust. 2. Protect the innocent. 3. Uphold the law. There might be a fourth, but I can't tell you about that. (Tim Doyle for Spoke Art's Mucho Machismo)

Breaking Bad: Periodic Table Of Death

Every death in Breaking Bad, to the last episode. And if I'm reading this correctly, Walter White still has a lower death toll than Gus Fring - but it appears they aren't putting Mike's guys on him and he is clearly responsible. In any case, awesome work by TDYLF's John LaRue.

Some people cut their Barbie's hair, others make detailed anatomical sculptures of their intestines. Too each their own. (Jason Freeny)
