These beautiful handmade stained glass panels are direct recreations of comic book panels created by Panovanator. The first depicticts Carol Danvers as/in Captain Marvel, (written by Kelly Sue DeConnick, art by Jamie McKelvie) and the second is Clint Barton as/in Hawkeye (written by Matt Fraction, art by David Aja). They’re gorgeous, geektastic tributes to two awesome comics.

It’s high time we shared more artwork by Australian illustrator DrFaustusAU (previously featured here), who reimagines movie, comic book and video game titles and characters as book covers rendered in the unmistakable style of Dr. Seuss.
Visit DrFaustusAU’s deviantART page to check out even more of his awesome artwork.
Art + Science = Awesome
The last time we visited the Department of Microscopic Marvels we were astonished by sandcastles etched onto individual grains of sand. Today’s wee wonder is the world’s smallest comic strip, etched onto a single strand of human hair. Entitled “Juana Knits The Planet”, the tiny comic was created by Claudia Puhlfürst in collaboration with the organizers of EHSM2, “the most cutting-edge DIY and open-source conference” for hackers and makers in Hamburg, Germany.
Claudia drew the comic and Andrew Zonenberg used a technique called focused ion beam (FIB) etching, which uses “a sharp jet of matter thinner and more delicate than a laser beam,” to engrave the comic onto one human hair.
Elsa Rhae is a Kansas City-based video editor/producer and awesome character makeup artist. She’s completely self-taught and able to transform herself into a fantastic variety of characters, including instantly recognizable faces from comic books, video games, movies and tv shows, spending between one and three hours on each dramatic transformation.

We had a blast at the first day of Emerald City Comic Con. We brought Mr. Bacon and Bigfoot for photo ops and we’re giving away FREE stickers. As you can see, even Spider-Man couldn’t resist taking a picture with Sasquatch.
Also, we couldn’t resist posting some of our favorite costumes. The Vision and Scarlet Witch are wearing the costumes we wish were in the next Avengers movie. But, our absolute favorite of the day is the Joker/Harley Quinn mashup with The Big Lebowski. Why so, like, serious, man?
Swiss artist Mathias Schmied uses a razor blade, careful hands and keen eyes to transform comic books into even more dynamic works of art. Superheroes and explosions alike breach the boundaries of their respective pages. He creates pieces using single pages and entire issues, the latter producing multi-layered scenes with a cinematic sense of perspective. Sometimes Mathias completely removes the characters, leaving their negative space to convey the drama taking place within each panel.
Visit Mathias Schmied’s website to check out more of his amazing altered comic book art.

Grant Snider of Incidental Comics just answered a burning question that arises every time we hear or sing “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”. What are all those Reindeer Games that Rudolph isn’t allowed to join in? (Besides Monopoly, of course.)
Now we wish we could play with Santa’s flying reindeer too. Their games are awesome.

The Department of Awesome Parenting just got even more awesome thanks to the ongoing efforts of an inspired pair of artist parents in the Kirby family. Every single day they decorate napkins for their two sons’ school lunches with an endless parade of characters from movies, comics, cartoons, and some fantastic character mashups as well.
"The napkin images are shared at lunch with their friends and teachers. The napkins are themed to the happenings in or around all of lives."
The images you see here are just a small sampling of their illustrated napkins. Follow them here on Tumblr for a complete gallery and to keep up with each new creation.
It’s a delightfully unconventional play on classic colouring books. But jeez, we never realized that Jessica Rabbit was suffering from such severe spinal curvature. Ouch.
