WonderCon 2012 Cosplay Pictures

If you didn't attend WonderCon 2012 this past weekend, you have our deepest sympathies, because you missed out on a ton of comics, anime, manga, video games and scantily clad cosplayers (including one Adrianne Curry). However, you can get a taste of the geek extravaganza if you check out G4's exclusive WonderCon 2012 pics! The nerds that have already seen them tell us that looking at our WonderCon 2012 photos is just like being at WonderCon, only you don't have to fight a crowd of nerds for con-exclusive Avengers swag. Other than that, the experience is exactly the same.

In an interview with Fresh Ink’s Blair Butler, comic book author Mark Millar said he’d like to make a trilogy of films for a re-booted Superman series, and it might happen. Millar's vision for a new Superman:

"I've had this plan for like 10 years for a big three-picture Superman thing, like a Lord of the Rings epic, starting over from scratch again with a seven-hour Superman story. One to be released each year." Millar said.

Millar says there's nothing firm yet,  but he hopes to get word over the next few weeks. If everything goes perfectly, they'll be shooting next summer. Check it out below:

Do you like movies? Do you like art? Do you like artistic interpretations of cult films? Can I stop asking you questions now?

Last week, the Crazy4Cult 2 art show opened at Gallery 1988, hosted by none other than Kevin Smith and his producer, Scott Mosier. After the success of last year's Crazy4Cult show, Kevin immediately agreed to continue the tradition for at least another year, and chances are for many more years to come. This year's show is three-times as big as last year, with over 150 pieces of art commemorating films like The Wizard of OZ, Donnie Darko, Strange Brew, and Total Recall just to name a few. To cover this marriage of film and canvas, we sent our very own Blair Butler for a special artsy-fartsy edition of Geek Out. Enjoy getting some culture.

If you're in or anywhere near Los Angeles, you owe it to yourself to check out Crazy4Cult 2 in person at Gallery1988 on Melrose at La Brea.  The show runs thru Sept 12th.

Geek Out: BSG Live!

Posted May 8, 2008 - By Yodapollo

This past Tax Day, April 15th, a very special event took place at the Roxy in Los Angeles, California. Nerds from all over crowded together for a sold-out show where composer Bear McCreary brought the music of Battlestar Galactica to a live concert venue.

We were the only ones given full access to everyone and everything inside the club. Sure we could be selfish and keep all the BSG-sweetness for ourselves, but we're not like that. We're about sharing.

Bear, his brother Brendan, the lovely Raya Yarbrough, and the Galactica's own Kandyse McClure all found time to sit down with us and talk about this unique concert event that brought musicians, performers, and geeks together like nothing has before.

This is the only place where you can see this footage! Also, be sure to check back next week, where we'll have some more BSG Live surprises up our sleeve.
