Farming the Oceans, the Moon, and Antarctica

2019/11/15

According to at least one prop replica, Rick Deckard‘s newspaper from Blade Runner (1982), is dated Friday, November 15, 2019. On the downside, we have no offworld colonies. On the upside, we haven’t driven most animal species to extinction yet. So I consider that a win. 🙂

“No fees will be charged for the service.” isn’t nearly as catchy as “Lorem ipsum”.

Surreal Estate – Part 2

2019/01/11

Superman has his Fortress of Solitude. Batman has the Batcave. Wonder Woman has…an old abandoned barn?

Does she at least have an old rusty padlock on the door to the Barn of Paradise?

The tour of these rather modest accommodations were arranged by Sensation Comics #24 (December 1943) by Evelyn Gaines, Frank Harry, William Moulton Marston, Stan Aschmeier, Sheldon Moldoff, Harry G. Peter, Howard Purcell, and Paul Reinman.

Man, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics suddenly aren’t looking so hot…

Happy New Year from Akira (1988)!

The Lunar Archivist’s Sketchbook – Part 47

2018/12/29

Earlier this year, I noticed some vague similarities between the cheongsam-inspired classic outfit of Chun Li and Princess Leia’s slave costume, so I decided to ask a few artists to draw a cross between the two. This is what Olivier Maranda, artist of the Tumblr-based webcomic Side Quest, came up with:

Expect to see more entries in this costume mashup series – one which one of my Twitter followers, Seth Engelhardt, humorously dubbed “Chun Leia” – in the months to come as I try and finally get this blog going again after years of neglect. See you in all in 2019, people! 😀

Art of the Infernal Deal

2018/12/25

If the Devil wants to make a deal, being the world’s most uncompromising negotiator is one hell of an advantage.

Yeah, I think that’s pretty much how we all react when receiving socks and underwear for Christmas. 😛

This infernal gifting session has been brought to you by JLA #52 (January 2002) by Mark Waid, Cliff Rathburn, and Paul Neary.

Retraining Day

2018/02/09

According to Blade Runner (1982), today’s the day that Zhora gains a new profession. 🙂

“Political Homicide”, eh? Guess euphemisms are a constant in every timeline…

Santa Claus Is Going To Town…On You

Don’t. Insult. Santa’s. Daughter.

Today’s fighting words have been brought to you by Jingle Belle Jubilee (2001) by Paul Dini, Sergio Aragonés, J. Bone, Dan DeCarlo, Ronnie Del Carmen, Bill Morrison, Steve Rolston, and Jill Thompson.

The Year of The Running Man

2017/01/04

<sarcasm>Quick reminder that we have sixteen days left until President-Elect Donald J. Trump is sworn into office, replaces American democracy with a fascist regime, and creates a new deadly brand of reality television. Do you miss 2016 yet?</sarcasm>

I'll bet you really miss "The Apprentice" now. :P

I’ll bet you really miss “The Apprentice” now. 😛

Downer Ending

2016/12/31

As much as a hate going out on a low note, if 2016 seemed really crappy to you, then my pointing out that the movie versions of V For Vendetta (2006) and Atlas Shrugged: Part I (2011) both indicated that this was the year where things went to hell in a handbasket with a new Great Depression in the U.S. and the St. Mary’s Virus epidemic continuing to wreak havoc in the U.K., respectively, probably won’t make you feel any better. :/

If you thought this year was bad, just wait until 2017... :(
