The Other Calvin & Hobbes

John Calvin and Thomas Hobbes by spacecoyote

Spacecoyote has posted something that we think is a vast improvement over the last time somebody tried to screw around with Calvin & Hobbes:

Few historians know of the heartwarming friendship between French Reformation theologian John Calvin and English political philosopher Thomas Hobbes, the latter of whom may or may not have been real, considering he was not even born yet.

She sells prints of it.

You might remember spacecoyote as the madwoman who did those Simpsons and Futurama anime pieces we linked to a while back. She appears to have given Death Note and Totoro the Groening treatment as well. Freaking awesome.

The Gashlycrumb Tribbles

The Trouble With Tribbles, adapted by Edward Gorey

Shaenon Garrity has taken the Star Trek classic episode, "The Trouble With Tribbles," and showed us what would have happened had it been adapted into illustrated book form... by Edward Gorey. This is almost a perfect morbid whimsical geekstorm.

In order to restore the cosmic balance, someone must now turn The Curious Sofa into an episode of Stargate Atlantis. Ready? Go.

What Happens After Z-Day?

When Zombie Clowns Rule

About the only way to make a scary clown scarier is to make it an undead scary clown. So bravo to the people who worked on this Worth1000 photoshopping contest which lets us know what things will look like once the world has ended and zombies rule all. It would truly be a "Necrogarchy."

Hey, you know...that's a catchy title for a short story.


Oh, but anyway, here's a bonus zombified bit. I feel so dirty for liking it. And it is Not Dindrane Friendly. I'm just saying.

The Lost World Exploration Case by AlexCF

Lost World case by AlexCF

AlexCF, that mad genius who keeps making replicas and props and things (all of which make me cry my geek heart to sleep at night because I got no dinero to bid on his goods) is at it again. Mercilessly he creates wicked shit and then dangles out in front of the the whole internet. And we, masochists that we are, wouldn't have it any other way.

This time out he's tackling Professor Challenger from The Lost World. No, this is the Arthur Conan Doyle Lost World not the craptastic Spielberg sequel. It's a case from where Challenger ascended to a plateau in the rainforest where dinosaurs still lived. The case was found in 1951.

The list of what's in the case is formidable (as you might expect), but a brief sampling of the bits follows:

Bloody Saw Scarf!

Monster Crochet's Bloody Saw Scarf

There's nothing like morbid arts and crafts, is there? Here you've got what they're calling "The Saw That Dripped Blood...SCARF." It's a two person saw (so it's long enough for your neck, natch) that is bloody from its last victim. Perfect for making people wonder about your sanity on windy days.

The pattern's available if you want to try your own.

Peter Chan's Artwork

Peter Chan appears to be able to do just about anything, honestly: from crazed sci-fi characters to illustrations you'd love to see in a comic book to cartoony bits to designs for sets you'd love to shoot some noir-horror movie on.
