In almost any large western convention’s Artists Alley, tucked away here and there in between the series parody bookmarks and postcards, the slash pictures and color posters of “cute male couple on TV du jour,” you can find comic artists doing actual comics. These comics are often some of the most interesting finds at a […]
The day has come, fellow nerds. It is my last day at The Mary Sue. I want to thank all our readers for making this a great two years (and one month-ish) for me, filled with puns and funs and mentally stimulating discussion about all manner of geeky topics.
All you other Borderlands cosplayers can pack up your siren makeup and go home, because you're never gonna top this look by Fox. Except actually don't, because we love all of you. But you get what we're saying, right? Even the Borderlands writer loved this cosplay the most. (via Fashionably Geek)
As a Henson nerd, one of the highlights of New York City Comic Con for me was attending the "Jim Henson Company: Upcoming Comics With Archaia" panel. Unfortunately, it also gave me some pretty unrealistic career goals. How exactly does one become a Henson historian? Just asking for a friend.
We had some pretty great comments this week (including tons of puns, obviously), so read on, gentle reader.
Listen, friends. I know you're already sick of Ultron and it's only been two days. I don't care. You're sitting your butt down and you're watching this Celine Dion/Avengers mash-up right now. WHEN HAVE I STEERED YOU WRONG, READERS. Just pretend you are Jasmine and I am Aladdin and take my hand and trust me.
Every morning I wake up and forget, just for an instant, that Gamergate is even a thing. It's consistently been the best part of my day for a week now. Alas, the "movement" is still trucking, so here's (some of, since it's churning out...Show More Summary
Benedict Cumberbatch visited The Graham Norton show and the host was able to pull some impressions out of him (Smaug and Jar Jar Binks) as well as prod the actor for clues about upcoming roles in Star Trek and Star Wars. And yes, they also revisit the Penguin Pronunciation Problem.
It looks like the sex scenes for Fifty Shades of Grey are being reshot because the on-screen bone-town chemistry currently has all the believability of the feather duster in the opening credits of Downton Abbey.
Halloween is fast approaching, and I know we all want to look good. For the best dress-up advice in the biz, I chatted with Holly Conrad, who you can find on Heroes of Cosplay, on her YouTube channel, or blogging over on ThinkGeek. Get your spoopy cosplay ideas ready and let's get advice'd!
Spoilers are coming, naturally.
Agent Carter has just picked up Nikita, Kick-Ass, and How I Met Your Mother actress Lyndsy Fonseca!
For those of you who don't watch Sleepy Hollow (WATCH SLEEPY HOLLOW), John Noble plays Henry Parrish, aka the Horseman of War. Like all servants of the devil, he also dabbles in law (lawyer jokes! Oh, classic), which puts him in a prime position to trick Orlando Jones into selling his soul. Show More Summary
If a victim were capable of fixing things on their own, the world would have no problems. As NASA astronaut Scott Kelly points out, it's important not to just be a bystander but instead to speak out when you see something that's unacceptable in society—whether it's bullying or anything else.

But who is his Jiminy Cricket, you ask? Well, probably Jiminy Cricket is somewhere else. Maybe with Sora and Donald and Goofy. Maybe in the Marvel Universe level of the Kingdom Hearts game of my dreams.
[Warning: Grossness to come.] If You Give a Mouse A Cookie is best known as a beloved illustrated children's book about an overall-wearing mouse with escalating dietary demands, but GrittyReboots is determined to leave no childhood unplundered. Show More Summary
Damn fine news, everyone: if you thought the description for Riverdale paid homage to the obvious similarities between Archie's home and a certain eccentric Northwest town, you were right. The sock hops are not what they seem.
Ever since it first premiered to a mostly confused audience at LA's Laemmle Fairfax theater in 2003, The Room has seen massive cult success as a terrible, so-bad-it's-genius favorite film. Lead actor Greg Sestero (Mark) has cashed in...Show More Summary
I AM SO ANGRY RIGHT NOW.
Physicists who really know how to market themselves put out this video of a laser pulse they're experimenting with that looks pretty reminiscent of the lasers in Star Wars when filmed with some clever camera tricks. Is there some kind of small exhaust port at the end of that hallway?
