Under normal circumstances, a video on the internet that opens with a grown man sitting up in bed with another grown man wearing a full-body tiger costume would only be of interest to a very specific market. When
I haven't actually watched DragonBall Z since high school, but I'll admit that I still have a tiny soft spot for Akira Toriyama's long-running story of dudes shouting at and occasionally punching each other. As a result, I got a kick out of this fan-made "trailer" based on DBZ's Saiyan Saga, which actually loo
After years of waiting for a big studio production of ElfQuest, fans and web TV producers Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rhodes took matters into their own hands by creating their own short film based on the indie comics perennial by Wendy and Richard Pini. Called ElfQuest: A Fan Imagining, the four-and-a-half minu
There are a lot of great team-up stories out there, but in his 22-minute short film The King and the Worst, director David Galan Galindo has brought us one of the most unexpected and awesome pairings of all time: Jack Kirby and Ed Wood, plucked from World War II to battle against a pair of evil sorcerers in a nightmarish dimension that looks an awful lot like someone's house.

Directed by Wes Armstrong and starring Devin White in the title role, the short, low-budget film employs some clever cutting techniques that remind
In the fifty years since he was created, Spider-Man has been seen in a lot of pretty strange live-action adaptations, including a Broadway musical and a mind-boggling Japanese tokusatsu show, but it looks like one of the strangest interpretations might also be the first. It's an 11-minute fan-film produced by Donald Glut in 1969, in which Spider-Man (played, of course, by Glut) battles against a supervillain called "Dr. Lightning" and occasionally turns into an action figure whenever special effects are required, and it's well worth seeing.

Serialized between 2005 and 2008 and available now as an uncommonly handsome hardcover collection from Oni Press, Local was one of the early definitive works of writer Brian Wood and artist Ryan Kelly. The 12-part series demonstrated Wood's devotion to the sel
