Superman and Batman. Who's better? Let's find out!

by Kerry Callen

For decades, fans have argued who is the better superhero, Superman or Batman. It recently occurred to me that the best way to determine this is to see how they’d fare if one replaced the other on their comic covers. Will one fare better than the other? This should decide once and for all who's superior! I selected six covers and then created six alternative images.

First up, Superman #32. Superman is being hit by multiple lightning bolts--

--while Batman is screaming multiple obscenities. Winner, Superman.

Next, Action Comics #357, featuring kids with kryptonite. Looks like Superman is in loads of trouble--

--Batman, not so much. Punk kids. Winner, Batman.

Let's look at a fairly famous cover, Batman #497, where Bane broke Batman's back--

I always thought this Batman cover should have had a sound effect on it. Otherwise, it merely looks like a visit to the chiropractor. Regardless-- Winner, Superman.

Next, Detective Comics #583. Batman is cooler when he's surrounded by bats!

Superman is not cooler when surrounded by supers. Winner, Batman.

Two wins for Superman. Two wins for Batman. It's a close race! Let's take a look at a cover that has both heroes on it, World's Finest #54--

Now, let’s replace Batman with Superman and Superman with Batman.

It appears they are both equally as awesome! Suck it, Robin. Tie!

Lastly, Detective Comics Vol. 2 #37, the deciding image! Batman lives in a mansion and has a butler--

Winner, Batman!

George Sr: I want you to know that it is okay for you to hide. A man can hide. There’s a quiet courage in that.
Buster: You’re a good uncle.
George Sr: I’m not your uncle. I’m your father.
Buster: What?

Mad Max: Fury Road VS Adventure Time

by Jeremy Barker

A perfect pairing of two post-apocalyptic worlds: Mad Max: Fury Road and Adventure Time's Land of Ooo. Ryan May's character matching is excellent. Above: Lemongrab as the War Boy Nux and Finn the Human as Mad Max.

Princess Bubblegum as Furiosa with the wives, Wildberry Princess, Flame Princess and Lumpy Space Princess.

The Ice King as Immortan Joe is kinda disturbing.

Marceline, the Vampire Queen as Coma the Doof Warrior, a.k.a. the flame throwing guitarist.

3A × 2000AD's "Judge Dredd: Deputy Chief Judge Fish" Collectible Figure!

by Nick Curtis / Trust Pigs
Recently shown off by threeA, the above fuzzy teaser picture is — for fans of the UK comic anthology 2000AD and especially the strips concerning Judge Dredd — obviously "Deputy Chief Judge Fish." A pet goldfish, he was appointed as Deputy Chief Judge by the insane Chief Judge Cal during his reign, which surely took inspiration from the Roman emperor Caligula. Unlikely that a 1/12th scale sized goldfish bowl is an independent collectible release, it's most probable that 3A are actually teasing a "Chief Judge Cal" figure in their ongoing, officially licensed Judge Dredd line!

A very gutsy build

by Iain

We’ve already seen the internal anatomy of a mini-fig, so I guess the innards of a brick-built figure was the next logical step. This version by Flickr member umamen comes complete with articulated joints, flex-tube veins and arteries, and helpfully color-coded organs. Can you name them all?

Nele Azevedo’s Army of Melting Ice Sculptures

by Caro
Her art only lasts a matter of seconds. Brazilian artist Nele Azevedo has been labeled a street artist, sculptor, and monument designer best known for her "melting men". Her ice sculptures of thousands of faceless tiny people have been staged on stairways all over the world. They are part of her "Minimum Monument" Project, or anti-monument as she sometimes calls it, an ongoing series that has toured to Brazil, Havana, Tokyo, Paris, Firenze and Berlin since 2001.

Random quote from Borat -- no html parsing

by benjabean1
$ curl -s "" | shuf -n 1 -

Turns out has a text file containing every single one of the borat quotes, each one on a newline. This makes it very convenient, as this can be done without any sed-parsing, and uses less bandwitdth!

Note that borate quotes are quite offensive, much more so than "fortunes-off"!

Freya Jobbins’s “Plastics.”

Fascinating sculptures by Australian sculptor Freya Jobbins.  These works are created from disassembling plastic dolls and then reassembling them as complex, beautiful and also somewhat nightmarish sculptures.  You can see more of Freya’s work below.

Star Wars's Darth Vader + Marvel Comics's Dr. Doom + Religious Iconography = ???

by Nick Curtis / Trust Pigs
Sket-One's "Our Father" sculpture, the piece of lowbrow art that mingles religious iconography with the visage of Star Wars's Darth Vader, is being released as the ultra-limited "Doom Vader Version," which incorporates the coloring of Marvel Comics villain Dr. Doom into the mix. These resin case objets d'art, limited to a mere 5 pieces worldwide, stand two feet tall (24-inches!) and weigh a massive 10 pounds. Each one has been hand-painted and is available right now to pre-order in Sket-One's online shop for $1800 apiece.
