Luke Cage Gets the Sitcom Treatment

I came across this edit on Reddit's Marvel Studios page. Redditor --zach-- edited scenes from Netflix's Luke Cage using the old TGIF family comedy 'Family Matters' as a template and created the perfect opening credits scene. I would watch the hell out of this Luke Cage comedy! This edit comes after another, where this same person did a 'Full House' version featuring The Avengers. Now all I need is an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. credits scene using the 'Friends' theme song...

Batman Red Rain Statue is now Available!

via Mondo

Batman Red Rain is a DC Comics Elseworlds tale in which the Dark Knight battles the infamous Dracula, ultimately becoming a vampire himself in the process. Inspired by Francesco Francavilla's poster of the same name, the Batman Red Rain statue depicts Batman as a vampire stalking the night and hunting his own kind while attempting to stave off his own hunger for blood.  

Incorporating elements from the poster, such as a tombstone from Batman's past and slain vampire skulls, this statue brings the dark beauty of the two dimensional art into the horrific third dimension!  

Pre-Order the Batman RedRain Statue here! Available in two versions.
