I’m a huge fan of artist, Dave Perillo, so when I heard that Acme Archives will be releasing two new illustrations by Perillo, I pretty much lost my mind.

In a recent episode of Parks and Recreation, comedian/actor, Patton Oswald plays a citizen of the City of Pawnee and to stall and block a vote, Oswald drops a eight minute long “Star Wars filibuster” that spans past the Star Wars Universe and into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and beyond. Unrehearsed and completely off-the-top of Oswald’s head, this little gem is a prime example of the genius of Patton Oswald. Prepare to witness what just might be one of the greatest things you will ever watch.

Hit the jump and enjoy.

Would you let some weirdo paint “The First Avenger” on your body when you’re pretty much half naked? Well, French artist, Niho Ame pretty much found someone that allowed him to apply paint to bare skin and put together a pretty cool graffiti-style Captain America body art piece. Everything looks pretty kosher, but I have to ask. What the heck is that on his shield and what exactly is he smoking?

If you’re a fan of cosplay, you probably came upon a little Italian cosplayer named Giorgia Vecchini AKA “Giorgiacosplay” (@GiorgiaCosplay) many times over the years. Giorgia is well known in the cosplay community for her vibrant and sexy costumes based on characters from hit comics, video games, and Japanese animation. Over the years, Giorgia has been praised for some awesome costumes such as Black Cat (Marvel), Mai Shiranui (Fatal Fury/King of Fighters), and Litchi Faye-Ling (BlazBlue). Well, so it’s no surprise to know that one of her newest cosplay is already turning heads. Giorgi’s cosplay is based on the “bishoujo” reimagining of Black Widow by famed Japanese illustrator, Shunya Yamashita. It’s refreshing to see this version of Black Widow considering almost every cosplayer has been hit the convention circuit with a cosplay based on the comic book or the movie version. Considering, Shunya Yamashita’s iconic style looks amazing on paper, Giorgia has successfully brought his creation to reality. I’m looking forward to what Giorgia has in store for us next!

You can follow Giorgia’s amazing work DeviantArt, Facebook, and giorgiacosplay.com. Hit the jump and check out her Black Widow costume photos (photographs by Daniele Faccioli)

TERRIBLE NEWS CITIZENS! TERRIBLE NEWS! It has been reported that director Matthew Vaughn has stepped down as the director of X-Men: Days of the Future Past. After his highly successful stint as the writer and director of X-Men: First Class, Vaughn will be handing off the franchise he helped revive to take on other projects. It is already well known that Vaughn is very selective on what projects he wants to take on and has already passed on films such as Thor and even First Class at one point. One positive bit of news from this tragedy is that Matthew Vaughn will stay on as the producer and it is possible that director/producer, Bryan Singer who is responsible for bringing the X-Men to the big screen (and served as producer on First Class) may take back his seat as the main man in the X-Men franchise. While Singer is a brilliant director (minus Superman Returns), Vaughn’s unique vision and form of storytelling and the team he surrounds himself with is what made First Class as great as it was. With Vaughn only as a producer, will Days of the Future Past be able to find the same success as First Class and build on it? What does this mean about Vaughn and his longtime cohort, Jane Goodman’s involvement in the story and screenplay? Will Goodman stay on? Is enough of the groundwork laid out for Days of the Future Past that Singer can pick up where Vaughn left off? Even with all these questions and only few answers, we hope that Singer and Vaughn’s relationship in the making of First Class will hold and bring the same magic to Days of the Future Past.

X-Men: Days of the Future Past is scheduled to drop on July 18, 2014.

I think it’s safe to say that there is no illustrator like Skottie Young (@skottieyoung). He style is one of a kind and as been the focus of many imitators. This Eisner Award winning artist have been making his mark in the comic book world with his amazing work in THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ and recently hit the jackpot with a “Marvel Babies” inspired Midtown Comics variant cover for AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #1. I guess even Marvel noticed the fanfare of Skottie Young’s amazing work as they are releasing eight variant “Marvel Babies” cover for their upcoming MARVEL NOW! books. Skottie Young’s pint-size heroes will be found has variant covers for UNCANNY AVENGERS, A PLUS X, ALL-NEW X-MEN, FANTASTIC FOUR, INDESTRUCTIBLE HULK, IRON MAN, THOR: GOD OF THUNDER, and DEADPOOL. All I know is, I will be picking up every one of these variant covers.
