Twilight Zone, Doctor Who, And More Are Delightfully Square In Pop Culture Art Show

fb share tweet share

TwilightZoneWe’re big fans of the Los Angeles-based Gallery 1988 here at GFR. The gallery is dedicated to celebrating pop culture in all its forms, and over the years they’ve hosted exhibits honoring Ghostbusters’ 30th anniversary and Joey Spiotto’s awesome “Golden Books” twists on beloved movies such as Back to the Future and Alien. Now they’ve got a new show highlighting another talented artist with a love for some of our favorite stuff. If you’re in LA looking for a good time, consider hitting up Gallery 1988’s “Squares 4 Squares” show, featuring Philadelphia artist Dave Perillo’s delightful takes on things like Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone, as seen in the above piece, dubbed “Your Next Stop.”

Perillo’s solo show at Gallery 1988 is already quite the success, with Blurppy.com reporting that a bunch of his original artwork sold out almost immediately. The show itself kicked off on August 22 and runs through September 20, so you’ve still got plenty of time to check it out. Just resist the urge to grab Perillo’s “Wibbly Wobbly, Timey Wimey” print off the wall and take off running. They’ll catch you, it’s just a matter of time.

Firefly, Ghostbusters, And More Get Kid-ified In Art That Will Make You Go Dawwwww

fb share tweet share

Guardians of the Galaxy was one of the few true box office saviors this summer, so have having raked in $425 million worldwide so far. While moviegoers might be getting weary of seeing superhero origin stories, Guardians’ tale of how Star-Lord, Rocket, and the rest became a team was so damn charming and funny that it’s almost impossible to dislike. But what if they’d met and decided to guard the galaxy much earlier in their lives? Say, when they were all still knee-high to a Kree? It might look something like this.

Firefly Online Reunites The Serenity Crew For MMO Adventures

fb share tweet share

FireflyPractically since the very moment Fox cancelled it back in 2003, fans have been clamoring for a Firefly reunion. The cast and crew of the beloved, gone-too-soon series have gotten back together for various gatherings and conventions over the years, not to mention the feature-length movie Serenity in 2005. Still, that’s not enough for Browncoats the world over, it’s never enough for the truly fanatical, but don’t worry, there’s more to come as the cast from the series is going to lend their voices to an upcoming massive multiplayer online game.

The announcement came at San Diego Comic-Con that Nathan Fillion, Regina Torres, Morena Baccarin, Adam Baldwin, Jewel Staite, Sean Maher, Summer Glau, and the rest will reprise their iconic roles for Firefly Online. There will also be some surprises along for the ride as well, like Michael Fairman playing Niska, the crime boss who appears in a couple of episodes.

Serenity Blue Sun Travel Posters Highlight Scenic Destinations Throughout The ‘Verse

fb share tweet share

SerenityValleyWith only 14 episodes produced, it’s understandable that Firefly fans would be eager to return to the ‘Verse in anyway they can. Sure, we got the movie, and now we’ve got the story continuing in the excellent Serenity: Leaves on the Wind comic, but with every year that passes, it seems less likely that we’ll get to see Nathan Fillion and the rest actually reunite on screen as the characters we love. Clearly, we’re not getting the Firefly we need here on Earth, so why not cut out the middle man and just book passage to one of the show’s scenic destinations directly?

Alas, I don’t actually have contact info for any interstellar travel agencies — if I did, you would currently be staring at a blank screen — but we do have some lovely faux travel posters that are suitable for framing and adorning the walls of your sci-fi-themed man cave. Or lady cave. Or whatever the female equivalent of “man cave” is that doesn’t automatically sound dirty. Where was I? Ah yes, an exciting vacation to exotic Sihnon!

Joss Whedon Resurrects Firefly’s Wash… Sort Of

fb share tweet share

If there was any question that Joss Whedon is not only a masterful storyteller, but also a ninja-level troll, that uncertainty can be put to rest now. See, last week somebody on Twitter asked Joss for more Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And lo, their prayers were answered! Sort of. He posted the following, along with the message, “your wish is my command here ya go.”

Doctor Who & Firefly Disney-Fied Make Us Fall For The Art Of Stephen Byrne

fb share tweet share

DisneyWhoOne of the biggest surprises I’ve had from the site recently was just how much this story blew up. Don’t get me wrong, I think artist Khallion’s illustrations featuring the Doctor recruiting Disney princesses as new companions are wonderful and charming — that’s why I wrote it up. But it’s one of those stories that I never would have guessed people would respond to so strongly. Well, for all of you folks who loved those, allow me to introduce artist Stephen Byrne, who has given his own Disney-style makeover to our favorite time lord — all 13 of him, in fact.

Byrne posted the “Disney Doctor Who” on his Facebook page, and it’s a testament to his talents that it really makes me want to see an animated Doctor Who series. Not necessarily a Disney one, mind you, but how great would it be to see ongoing adventures of the various Doctors in cartoon form? Many of the former Doctor actors already regularly lend their voices to Doctor Who audio dramas, so why not take the next step and give us some ‘toons? (In fact, we very nearly did get a Who animated series a while back, but the BBC allegedly “didn’t want anything to distract from production of the tv show.” Which makes no sense whatsoever to me.)
