Doritos Releases Green SUPERNOVA Chips For Guardians Of The Galaxy 2

A post shared by 횬둉이 (@hhjeeeee) on

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is only a few weeks away and we’ve already got tickets to catch the much-anticipated Marvel feature. The only thing that could make a comic book flick even better are some snacks to munch on while we wait in line. Here’s where Doritos come in.

The snack brand released a limited edition flavor of Supernova Doritos in celebration of the new Guardians movie.

While only available in Australia, these Doritos are definitely worth eBaying if you’re an avid collector of rare flavors. Boasting a bright green color, the Doritos feature a zesty lime flavor buddied up with a kick of black pepper.

You can find them now in the snack food aisles of participating grocery retailers in Australia.

SS-Breakfast-Poster

The DC Comics summer blockbuster Suicide Squad is a little more than a month away and promotions have begun kicking into gear for the comic book movie. A new IMAX poster for the film dropped this morning featuring all the members of “Task Force X” as marshmallows in a bowl of breakfast cereal.

Director David Ayer shared the colorfully clever new poster on his Twitter page. Check it out.

Suicide Squad opens in North America on August 5. It stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney and Joel Kinnaman. This will be the third movie in the DC Extended Universe, following Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

This 24-Hour Coffee Shop Has Video Games, Books, Costumes & More

Nerds, dorks and dweebs, unite! A young man named Kristopher Irons had a dream to create a 24-hour coffee shop that panders to geeks and gamers alike, so what did he do? The next logical thing of course: he started a Kickstarter campaign to create his dream coffee shop, Requiem.

Screen Shot 2016-04-20 at 5.19.06 PM

Final Fantasy fans might recognize the font and style of the coffee shop’s name.

Irons realized that outside of the world’s largest geek conventions (such as Comiket with 590,000 people, gamescon with 335,000, Japan Expo with 240,000 and San Diego and New York Comic Cons, with 130,000 and 150,000 people, respectively), there is no place that’s not online for friends and fans of anime, comics, games, movies, tv shows, books and other mediums of geekdom to gather, discuss and socialize.

“Sports fans have sports bars where they can go for countless hours…why don’t fans of anime, books, cartoons, comics, movies, tv shows, or video games?” 

He even made a pretty good observation about how large groups of people are (and should be) catered to: “Sports fans have sports bars where they can go for countless hours to feel at home, surrounded by people who understand their passions — why don’t fans of anime, books, cartoons, comics, movies, tv shows, or video games?”

Screen Shot 2016-04-20 at 4.47.03 PM

Anyone who has ever played a game like Zelda will recognize these colorful “potions”

Being a gamer, I can proudly say I’ve spent countless hours playing video games, often going into the ridiculous hours of the morning. Irons can relate, which is why his startup coffee joint will be open 24 hours a day! Being a nerd myself, I’m very familiar with the whole “bullies and nerds” culture. Irons seems to also know it, since he puts a big emphasis on the fact that no harassment at all will be tolerated in his coffee shop. It’s meant to be a safe haven where people can feel comfortable being themselves.

Screen Shot 2016-04-20 at 5.23.14 PM

Irons will also be implementing a “stop and go” system of sorts. If someone is happy to socialize and willing to let people approach his or her table, he’ll turn his table cone over to reveal the green cone. If he or she simply wants to snuggle up with a book, a cup of coffee and their thoughts, they can flip the cone over to the red side.

The coffee shop will have four general areas based on common themes throughout a variety of popular games. One area will be a Sci-fi area similar to those seen in games like Halo and Destiny, another corner will be a woodland shire-type area, much like Zelda and Skyrim, one corner will take inspiration from castles, cathedrals and other large structures commonly found in RPGs, and the last corner will feature the retro-modern stylings often associated with steampunk trends and the 50s/60s.

Screen Shot 2016-04-20 at 4.48.02 PM Screen Shot 2016-04-20 at 4.47.55 PM Screen Shot 2016-04-20 at 4.48.35 PM Screen Shot 2016-04-20 at 4.47.46 PM

Requiem will be located in Anaheim, California, close to the Disneyland area, so that guests anywhere from LA to San Diego will be able to take a short trip to reach their mini Comic Con destination. The shop will also have cosplay items for use, board and card games, high speed internet for gaming, art supplies for artists, a community board to find others with the same interest, and a huge supply of books and comics at your disposal. If you want to donate to this genius idea, check out the Kickstarter campaign here!

Well, it looks like I’ve found my new home…so who’s coming with me? In the words of Super Mario, “Let’s a-go!”

Denny’s Debuts ‘Fantastic Four’ Menu Including This Monstrous THING BURGER

Dennys-Thing-Burger-01

The Fantastic Four remake is a few months away and hype is steadily growing for the comic book blockbuster. As the premiere gets closer, Denny’s has released a series of Fantastic Four-themed menu items in a partnership with 20th Century Fox.

The new items include a Thing Burger (cheese bagel bun, hash browns, eggs, bacon), Human Torch Skillet (sausage, potatoes, peppers) and the Invisible Woman Slam (Grand Slam with fruit-packed pancakes) named after three of the four protagonists of the film. Also on the “Slamtastic 4” menu are the Fantastic Four Fruit Smoothie, the Fantastic Four Cheese Omelette and the Doom Lava Cake.

Looks like Mr. Fantastic isn’t getting anything named after him. That Thing burger (above) is pretty genius, though.

The new menu will be available at participating Denny’s locations June 23. Fantastic Four is set to open in theaters nationwide on August 7.

Baker Decorates Each Cookie by Hand, Resulting in Edible Masterpieces

Reddit-Cookie-Turtles

Whenever I see someone create art on a canvas of baked goods, I have to take a second and admire it. It’s actually incredibly difficult to draw something on a cake or a cookie, whether it’s simply lettering or a picture of Batman. At least from my experience. That being said, a baker recently posted some of her beautiful cookie designs on Reddit.

What’s special about them is that she goes out of her way to freehand each drawing from scratch, instead of retracing a previous piece of work. She even includes a few photos detailing her tedious process of sketching to icing each cookie.

Take a look below at some of the most gorgeous cookie art I’ve even seen.

Photorealist Artist Creates Incredibly Realistic Paintings of Snacks and Comics

Comics-Snacks-Pete

I have a tremendous respect for photorealist painters. To capture on a canvas what many people fail to capture through a photo takes incredible talent. When I discovered Doug Bloodworth created a series of paintings combining two of my favorite loves, he immediately jump shot to the top of my list of artists.

Through oil-based paintings, Bloodworth formed a theme of vintage snacks paired with old-school comics and funny books. The Florida painter definitely knows how to hit the nostalgia bone.

Using grids and a blank canvas, each piece can take Bloodworth more than two months to complete. The end product, however, is absolutely worth the time spent. Check out some of his paintings below.
