Canadian digital artist and photographer, Mike Roshuk put together a collection of Disney Princesses reimagined as warriors. As usual, with fan art like these, the ladies do not have much going on in the armor department. It just doesn’t seem like a smart idea to go into battle just wearing underwear, but I have to admit that Ariel with a trident is pretty fucking bad ass. Sigh… Internet…
Fan films are always amazing, but Grayson: Earth One is a breath of fresh air. Unlike most fan films based on comic book characters, Grayson: Earth One is not a five minute short film of just fighting and costumes. Grayson is a retelling of one of DC Comic’s most underrated characters.
“Grayson: Earth One” season one is a non profit six episode season dedicated to exploring the origin story of the DC character known as Nightwing — but with a twist. The twist being that Richard Grayson has never had the good fortune of being adopted as a child by Bruce Wayne, thus never becoming the boy wonder. Instead, we have a Richard Grayson that had to fend for himself on the unforgiving streets of Gotham and, even worse, the streets of Bludhaven. A character that has to overcome years of dog eat dog mentality to become a selfless and kind individual. To ultimately fulfill his destiny and become a HERO.
Why is change a good thing? Simply put, we wanted to tell a story that involves characters that are beloved, but also wanted a story that the audience could not predict based its iconic source material. We would also love to attract people that had no previous interest in the comic book world by grounding these characters into situations that they could relate to. We look forward to creating a new fan base following these awesome comic book characters that we grew up with.
Writer and director, Hisonni Johnson did a fantastic job putting together a short film that is more than what we expected. Only one installment in and I’m already hooked and I would love to find out more into Johnson’s vision of Nightwing. Johnson is raising funds on Indiegogo so he can complete his six-episode season. I hope this leads to a full television series on CW. I see great promise in Johnson’s vision.
Grayson: Earth One stars Stephen McCain as Richard Grayson, Daz Crawford as Dr. Victor Friese, Rileah Vanderbilt as Helena Bertinelli, Angela Gulner as Barbara Gordon and Katie H. Young as Carrie Kelly.
I always thought that George R.R. Martin‘s epic, Song of Ice and Fire would have been a great animated series, but that was only because I could have never imagined that it was possible to recreate the story in a live action television series until Game of Thrones was released. I’m guessing artist, Тхе Мичо had the same idea as he has created over 300 portraits of characters from Song of Ice and Fire. Some of the illustrations seems like they were inspired by Game of Thrones, but there are a huge amount of illustrations for characters that were created before they appeared in the series and it’s pretty amusing how close they are. You can check out all 300+ illustrations on Тхе Мичо’s Facebook fan page.
This is pretty awesome. Jeremy Bartlett AKA JermTube put together an impressive collection of custom Magic the Gathering cards featuring characters of Game of Thrones. What I really enjoy the most is that the card mechanics aren’t silly and they actually reflect the character that they feature. I think Jeremy is really on to something here and I wish Wizards of the Coast and HBO will considering putting together a little Magic inspired Game of Thrones game! On that note, how long before “Cersei Lannister, Queen Regent” starts tapping “Jaime Lannister, Kingslayer”?
