The very minute Whovians learned that Steven Moffat would be penning the Sherlock Holmes redux for BBC, the fanfic crossover cup raneth over and the fanart promptly followed. The nifty graphic you see above is just one example from the seriously talented Nero749, who’s stuff you should go buy. 🙂 Before you even ask, yes, there’s a DeviantArt Group dedicated to the Time Lord and the master of deduction (wait, Master?!!.. Great, now my crossover fanfic plot bunny is stirring). Naturally, it follows that there are a ton of fanvids that have joined in on the fun as well. As I’m sure you are well aware, however, truly amazing fanvids are few and far between. So when something like this comes across the desk, it has to be shared. This person has some serious effing FinalCut skills and I’m not afraid to say I’m absolutely jealous! Hit the jump to check it out and let me know what you think in the comments!
There was an awesome feature up at Unreality today about what Calvin and Hobbes would look like all grown up, as secret agents (a book I’d totally read, or a show I’d totally watch, etc). However the entire gallery of artist Coran Stone, AKA kizer180 on deviantART, definitely deserves some attention. Hit the jump for some more awesomesauce from his gallery.
It may seem a bit late to be previewing figures for Batman: Arkham Asylum, with that title long past and its successor Arkham City almost a week away from release, but sometimes quality takes a bit of time. Square debuted these figures at the 2011 San Diego Comic Con, and they were amazing. Now there are some nice photos to show off to the general public. Hit the jump to see the photos and get the info.
I never knew this existed. Apparently there was a two hour documentary on the making of Return of the Jedi and no one ever thought to tell me. It’s an absolutely fascinating watch for both casual fans of Star Wars, and hardcore fans like myself. It also offers a rare glimpse at George Lucas before he lost his goddamn mind. Check it out after the jump.
Yesterday was the 45th Anniversary of the premier of the original Star Trek series on NBC. In celebrating the much-loved series, the fine folks over at Space.com created a kick-ass “Evolution of Star Trek” infographic with a timeline of significant events. Hit the jump to check it out.
I love it when I come across stuff like this when hunting down site content. I love sharing it even more. What I have for your dose of Awesomesauce today is a gallery of works by the magnificent Bob Strang (AKA VonToten) of deviantART, a number of superhero-inspired pieces in a unique style that is just absolutely gorgeous. The sad part of this whole affair is that there aren’t any prints available, but you can head over to his deviantART page to see all of his work and hit the jump for some of my favorites.
