THE SINGLE GREATEST THING TO COME OUT OF SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2014
SDCC is under way and fans are getting their fill of the latest movie trailers, TV pilots, celebrity appearances, newest collectibles, and the thing that I’ve enjoyed the most so far has been this picture of a dude punching a bear in the face from the Magic: The Gathering panel earlier today.
I’m a huge MTG nerd and the wait for the next block, Khans of Tarkir, has been killing me. This picture should hold me over until it drops this September.
And now for speculation: what do you think this card even does? I’m hoping for something flavorful like “Whenever this creature enters the battlefield it deals 2 damage to target creature or player.” Take that, bears!

1966 LEGO Batman Project

Sam Gras writes in to us:

Hello, My name is Sam. I’m a Father, Cosplayer, and all around geek. My Four year old daughter is obsessed with Batman and Robin and asked me to make her a LEGO Batmobile that would fit both characters. I made her the iconic 1966 version. The build is on the LEGOIdeas website and has been in the top projects consistently every week. We currently have over 4,000 supporters.

With your help, we can reach our goal of 10K supporters and LEGO will consider producing the set. Below is a link to the build and my Facebook page. Please consider writing an article about the build, this would make an awesome little girl and her father very happy.

This is super rad and I really want those 60’s Batman and Robin figs. Head over to LEGO Ideas to support this project NOW!

DAILY GRAFFITI: ELEKTRA EDITION

Here’s some HUUUUGE graffiti inspired by Joe Madureira's (favorite comic artist EVER!) run on Savage Wolverine where Logan and Elektra take on the Hand.

Fun fact: The Hand is a group of evil ninjas from the Marvel universe. They were parodied in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics as… DUN DUN DUNNNN… The Foot!

COMIC BOOK STAINED GLASS WINDOWS

Check out these custom made stained glass windows by Redditor OwlQuill. Perfect for the Holy Church of Geekery if one were to actually exist somewhere. if it did, I would want to be the Reverend. Or maybe the minister. Is there a difference? Whoever gets the coolest outfit.

As awesome as these are, the Hawkeye one makes my heart sad knowing that the series will end with issue #22. Great job, Matt Fraction. You broke my heart, you perfect bastard.

POKEMON OMEGA RUBY/APLPHA SAPPHIRE BRINGS BACK SUPER-SECRET BASES

Super-Secret bases bring an Animal Crossing quality to the Pokemon world with hidden hide-outs that you can decorate with all sorts of items and furniture. No room for a Snorlax beanbag chair in your dorm or apartment? Get one for your secret base!

Build and Customize a Super-Secret Base and Share It with the World!
Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire players will be able to create their very own Secret Base, a customizable area that will allow them to show off their individuality by setting up mazes or traps for visitors to encounter, and even creating Pokémon battle rules, transforming their Secret Base into their own Pokémon Gym!

Players will be able to share their Secret Base with other Trainers around the world using StreetPass functionality, or they can create a QR Code for their unique Secret Base, enabling friends to visit it with ease. When visiting other Secret Bases, players can meet other Trainers in the same base and invite them back to their own Secret Base as Secret Pals. Players can interact and battle with Secret Pals, who have special skills that can support players in their adventures, such as sharing new Decorations, making a Pokémon Egg hatch faster, or raising the level of a select Pokémon by one. The more Secret Pals players have in their Secret Base, the more special skills will be available to help them in their adventures.  

Players can also capture flags while visiting other players’ Secret Bases. Flags are located beside the Secret PC in each Secret Base. The more flags a player collects, the higher the rank earned, which brings rewards like improving the skills of a player’s Secret Pals.

Question: How pumped would you be if Nintendo actually decided to make an Animal Crossing x Pokemon crossover game?
