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.

A day devoted to celebrating the awesomeness of pugs is the perfect time to make sure you’re all aware of an awesome, Eisner award-winning webcomic called… wait for it… Battlepug! And, yes, he really is a giant, slobbery pug.
“A dark-humored, fantasy-genred revenge story, Battlepug is about the last surviving member of the Kinmundian Tribe known only as “The Warrior”, his steed, the Battlepug, and their traveling companion, Scrabbly. The story is narrated by Moll, who recounts the tale to her talking dogs, a Pug named Mingo and a French Bulldog named Colfax.”
We recently featured an awesome LEGO sculpture of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that was on display at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con. Here are two more amazing superhero sculptures created by LEGO’s Master Builders: a 7-foot-tall Superman and 6.5-foot-tall Iron Man. It looks like Iron Man’s eyes and arc reactor actually light up too. Super awesome!

In August of 1962, the publication of Amazing Fantasy #15 marked the very first appearance of Spider-Man. That issue is now a rare and very expensive comic. Instructables member kevinmakes has always wanted a copy to hang on his wall, so he came up with an awesome way to do just that without using the comic itself.
Holy rubber chickens, do we ever love Big Red Ape’s super awesome Hellboy cosplay. The costume she made is impressively detailed and her pose perfectly captures Hellboy’s distinctive demeanour.
"This is me in my first ever Cosplay costume Hellboy. I wanted to play homage to both the comic character as well as the movie adaptation and include many details and props that are usually over looked.
I just won Manga UK’s best female cosplay too!”
