Thinking 4th Dimensionally: Back to the Future

 

The world  may have waited 30 years only to find out that we don't have hover cars, dog walking drones, or fully-functional hoverboards (thanks a lot, Father Time!), but that doesn't mean we can't think 4th Dimensionally. Here today, just over a week away from October 21, 2015 - the day when Marty McFly, Jennifer Parker and Doc Brown famously ventured into the future in Back to the Future Part II - we have the distinct pleasure of seeing beyond our past to take stock of our "future".

 

In the spirit of exploring the delecate fabric of the space-time continuum, we bring you three cross-sections of time from the Back to the Future trilogy. And quite literally, we've pulled apart the threads to explore the principle costumes worn by Marty McFly, Doc Brown, and Biff Tannen throughout 1985, 1955, 2015, and 1985. Cosplayers delight - this is your source for finding the Back to the Future costume that no one else thought of for Halloween 2015! Enjoy the ride.

Attack on Titan Infographic

 

Attack on Titan (aka 進撃の巨人 or Shingeki no Kyojin) made a colossal splash on pop culture the last few years. From the pages of the unstoppable Japanese manga to the anime series you couldn’t peel your bloodshot eyes away from, Attack on Titan took the world by gnashing-toothed storm. And the storm only seems to intensify with time!

There was the live-action movie making a footprint on Comic-Con, wild speculation about the true nature and origins of Titans, and “leaked” information that brewed the perfect storm for fans and YouTube/Wikia speculators. Yep, the mystery mingled with misinformation created a steamy mess that we couldn't resist. So, we tried to do some untangling by dredging up information that true fans might appreciate. Again, proceed with caution, but if you can still enjoy a show or manga with a little bit of the backstory in your noggin, then spoil away friends!

In Greek mythology, sirens lure unwitting sailors to shipwreck through their beautiful singing. With a captivatingly deadly mix of danger and beauty, it’s no wonder comic book writer Paul Dini carried that mythology into the 2009 comic series Gotham City Sirens. Following the paths of an infamous fearsome threesome - Poison Ivy, Catwoman, and Harley Quinn - it not only showcases...
