‘Doctor Who’ Moves From IDW To Titan Comics

Doctor Who Titan Comics
BBC/Titan Comics

A new Doctor is taking over the TARDIS, and a new publisher is soon to start publishing Doctor Who comics.

IDW Publishing has held the license since 2008, and over the past six years the publisher has released an array of comics based on the new Doctor Who series, along with reprints of classic BBC Doctor Who comic strips. But the mantle has officially passed to Titan Comics -- the comics arm of Titan Books -- that will release stories based on the tenth, eleventh and twelfth Doctors this year.

Meditations On Love, Politics And Snowmen In ‘Calvin And Hobbes’ And ‘Dune’ Mashup

Dune Hobbes top

The internet is full of so many random mashups and, frankly, a lot of them aren't very interesting, and many are just forced. But there are some, like the recent effort to remix Peanuts with Morrisey lyrics, that feel appropriate. And now there's Calvin And Dune, a tumblr that presents Calvin and Hobbes strips combined with quotes from Frank Herbert's timeless science fiction saga. It's not an association I'd have immediately made, but it makes a lot of sense, as both have obvious philosophical influences that occasionally overlap. But mostly they're just fun, and you can check out a few of our favorites below.

Juan Ortiz Creates Retro Movie Posters For Every ‘Star Trek’ Episode [Art]

Star Trek hed

 

There are so many artistic tributes to the Star Trek franchise that at this point it's a bit of a challenge to do anything that immediately stands out, but artist Juan Ortiz has produced something that caught our attention. Similar to Francesco Francavilla's Breaking Bad project, Ortiz -- a longtime illustrator/designer for Disney and Warner Bros. who has also provided cover art for DC Comics' Looney Tunes series -- has produced a faux movie poster for all 80 episodes of the original Star Trek series, collected in a coffee table book titled Star Trek: The Art Of Juan Ortiz. Some of the posters have an obvious Saul Bass influence, and others are inspired by various comic book, movie poster, and pulp novel cover art from the '60s.

The last time the Topps trading card company released a new set of Mars Attacks story cards, John F. Kennedy was in the White House.

They say two things you should never discuss in polite conversation are religion and politics. It used to be sex, religion, and politics, but we all have raging porn addictions now, so, realistically, that topic is no longer off limits

Hasbro Announces New ‘Star Tours’ Action Figure Sets

If, like me, you count yourselves among the pitiable number of Star Wars fans who never rode the original Star Tours ride before Boba Fett blew it up and, sadder still, have yet to experience the upgraded Star Tours: The Adventures Continue attraction at Disney's assorted theme parks (or even if you have), Hasbro's got new action figures in the pipeline that should provide some consolation. This May two new Star Tours action figure packs will join Hasbro's initial 2011 offerings f
