If you're like me, you've spent countless hours watching television with a frown on your face, frustrated at the limitations of the medium. You've been sitting there watching some of your favorite adult-oriented animated adventure shows, and something just didn't set right. "Listen,' you've undoubtedly said, "This stuff with the moving pictures is all well and good, but why can't it just be a book?"
Well, friends and neighbors, the good people at Dark Horse Comics have heard your complaints, and they have stepped up: In October, Dark Horse will be releasing The Art of the Venture Bros.as a hardcover coffee table book, featuring designs and backgrounds from every episode of the show, with commentary by creators Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer.
I'll be honest with you: I'm getting just as sick of writing about Shia LaBeouf's continued efforts to win the Jerk Olympics as you may be of reading about him, but he keeps trying to top himself after initially being accused of plagiarizing Daniel Clowes (and now, many others) and it's impossible to ignore.

Though observant listeners to early clips of Fox's new Axe Cop animated show were pretty certain Parks and Recreation actor Nick Offerman, Ron F**king Swanson himself, would play the titular mustachioed officer, Axe Cop co-creator Ethan Nicolle confirmed it, along with the rest of a truly stellar cast, on his blog.
Following Patton Oswalt's fully improvised filibuster/rant on Parks and Recreation -- in which he spent nearly eight minutes sharing his pitch for a Star Wars/Marvel film crossover in the next installment in the Star Wars film franchise -- the folks at Entertainment Weekly have created a mash-up poster of all of his suggestions. All of this, of course, means we are now one step closer to this film being made. I mean, Disney once made a movie based on a theme park ride, so really anything can happen.
Parks and Recreation, a show about politics in a small U.S. town, often finds clever ways to parody various topical issues taking place in Washington D.C. Tomorrow's episode is no different, as this time they're taking a shot at much debated filibuster reform, and they've enlisted the help of Patton Oswalt to do so.

For all those who love the third Blade movie, Blade: Trinity, you'll be happy to know that, if a few recent behind-the-scenes stories from Patton Oswalt are any indication, the creation of the movie seems to have been at least as entertaining as the movie itself... Although it may not ha
If your daughter desperately wants you to be a believable Doctor Octopus for Halloween, it sure helps to know a Mythbuster.
When Patton Oswalt tweeted that his daughter wanted him to accompany her Spider-Girl as Doctor Octopus this year, the always-helpful Adam Savage came through with an amazing getup that wouldn't break the comedian's back. Find out how after the jump!
Savage made it easier on Oswalt by placing the weight of
