Random Tuesday: Labyrinth, SciFi Releases, Comic Heroine Teamup & More

And it's Tuesday again! That means it's time for random, like this gallery of Labyrinth art. I dedicate this link to my friend Tabitha over at My Shelf Confessions, who finally pushed me to watch the 80s classic by saying she wouldn't be my friend otherwise. These artists make David Bowie's hair look less ridiculous, which is kind of a miracle. My favorite is probably this one by Holly the Terrible. You can see more of her art on DeviantArt.

If you have been living under a rock, you might not know that Ben Affleck is going to play Batman in the next Superman movie. The internet exploded after the announcement, while I thought that Fernando made it up in an attempt to get me to wake up through nerdly rage one morning. Here is a little bit about how everything went down from /Film. My nerd rage was mostly that they had said they would get old Batman and Ben Affleck is two years older than Christian Bale and therefore not OLD Batman.

We saw The World's End on Friday and I honestly still haven't processed what I saw. I don't recommend reading this interview with director Edgar Wright and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost if you haven't seen the movie. They discuss the crazy and the ending. (Found via /Film)

Here is a list of science fiction books coming out in September, courtesy of Tor. 

I'm really excited by this new clothing line by Lauren Moshi featuring Warner Brothers character, particularly some of my favorite comic book heroines. A few of the Wonder Woman designs are on Comicbook Resource. 

A new comic book teaming up Zatanna with Black Canary is coming in 2014. It's written by a dude, which I suppose is okay considering Paul Dini has a pretty good track record working with strong female superheroines. This is definitely a series I will check out. The art looks great too. Joe Quinones likes to draw women who don't have breasts larger than their heads, so that's always a plus.

Joss and crew should look at this 11 storylines to steal for the Agents of SHIELD series. I can't wait for that show. It will hopefully be insane. (io9)

Samantha Swords won the Longsword competition at the Harcourt Park World Invitational Jousting Tournament, which I didn't even know was a thing. There are some cool pics of her in her battle armor. (Fashionably Geek)

Entertainment Weekly released their list of top book releases for the fall. It's mostly serious lit and nonfiction, which doesn't get much attention around here, but some of them sound good.

Returning to the YA sphere I am more familiar with, Macmillan YA compiled their recent cover reveals for winter 2014 books. They're pretty.

And finally here are Katie Cook's instructions on how to draw an adorable robot. It looks pretty easy. Might have to create my own adorable robot friend.

 

And that's all my random. Hit me up with all your random in the comments!
