No one was flailing as much as I was in the theater while watching Pacific Rim. No one. That said, when pondering what my next round of Fanart Glee post should be about, I realized — duh, I bet there’s some amazing Pacific Rim fanart on Tumblr these days! Check out the ones I collected after the jump.
Since it’s no secret that our Lady Geeks are Fast and the Furious fans, Gizzy B and the Space Pirate Queen pay a little tribute to Paul Walker. We also discuss Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and the new Godzilla trailer. Fanfic Theatre: Star Wars.
On another Halloween themed episode, the Lady Geeks delve into their childhood and talk about their worst nightmares – cannibals, rubber ducks, the Joker, white noises, mental asylums and more. Don’t worry, we still get a little silly though this episode is slightly creepy!
The Brands Boutique will have pop up shop at Anime Expo on June 29-July 2, 2012 selling merchandise from 10 different and local indie brands in California. One of them is Marlowe the Monster by my friend, Shing Yin Khor, which will be available at the shop this year.
How can you not love her work? These monsters are so adorable and she puts in a lot of work with all her individual pieces. They’re all handmade by her, baby, make no mistake. She not only sculpts them, she paints them and she publishes books and comics. Yes, she is one productive and busy lady — which is why I appreciate it when she takes time to eat ramen with me once in awhile!
Here’s an interview with Shing and her participation this year with Brands Boutique.
I met Rebecca at Geek Girl Con 2011 in Seattle and she is so funny and talented. Rebecca created the popular web comic, Little Vampires, about little 7-inch (or less) vampires who try to be as fierce and frightening as the big vampires. Except, they are just too darn cute. Rebecca illustrates art and creates all kinds of merchandise to sell at different conventions around the country. She talks about her project and her convention experiences below in her spotlight interview. Trust me, this woman is the person to ask when it comes to sitting at a table at convention’s exhibit halls.
DEFECTIVEGEEKS: Tell us about your web comic ‘Little Vampires’ and what inspired the concept? Why did you start this webcomic?
REBECCA HICKS: The Little Vampires webcomic is about a group of miniature monsters that try really hard to be big and fierce but fail spectacularly at it. The focus of the comic is their misadventures, but it’s also about their friendship with Wolfie (a little wolfman), Frank (a little Frankenstein’s monster), and other little monsters, none of whom sparkle. There is no sparkling. Little monsters, big fun, no sparkling. Unless they cover themselves in glitter.
At one point during Comic Con I walked by a table that had dozens upon dozens of postcards on it advertising different comics, movies, and TV shows. I glanced over all of them and then came across one that stood out. It said, “N Y P DÂ M. It takes a monster to catch one.”
I was intrigued. I took a postcard and looked up the official website. The more I found out about NYPDM, the more I interested I became. Come on, it’s a crime drama show with supernatural elements. Considering that I’m addicted to Law & OrderÂ andÂ Supernatural, a show like this is right up my alley.
From the official Press Release:
“NYPDM is a new web series that revolves around an unusual unit of NYC police detectives who possess a unique connection to a dark underworld where monsters are real. Taking an ‘it takes one to know one’ approach, Lt. Spiller heads a special group of cops who have much in common with the monstrous suspects they pursue with one key difference: they’re the good guys.”
Awesome, right? Something that made me look forward to this show is that based from the trailer, it looks gritty and mysterious. I think something that has been missing lately from the supernatural genre is a gritty crime drama and after watching the first two episodesÂ Â I can honestly say that NYPDMÂ fills this gap and made me thankful that I saw their postcard at Comic Con.
Under the cut is the first two episodes. Click to watch!
