Artist Nan Lawson is best know for her Meet Cute series of artwork featuring some of our favorite couples of film and television. Her work has a dreamy sort of quality to it with a unique illustration style and use of color. But her latest show, Through the Woods at Gallery 1988, has pulled back from the Meet Cute portraits she’s known for. Instead, she’s recreated beloved scenes from various forests in film and television, including moments from Logan, Midsommar, Stranger Things, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, The Witch, Lord of the Rings, and more. Check out some of Nan Lawson’s Through the Woods art show below. Read More »

Hasbro’s Black Series has been making waves for a few years now by making 6-inch action figures (and a few other collectible items) from the Star Wars saga. They’re much detailed than the smaller, standard 3 and 3/4 inch figures that have been popular since the original movie released the first merchandise following the original Star Wars, and they’re intended for more grown up collectors. But they’re about to release one of the coolest items yet, and it’s not an action figure.
Along those same lines of the detailed Black Series action figures, Hasbro has also been releasing a series of adult-sized helmets based on the costumes for Kylo Ren, Darth Vader, and Stormtroopers, as well as X-Wing pilots helmets for Poe Dameron and Luke Skywalker. Now they’re bringing the helmet the the Mandalorian bounty hunter Boba Fett to shelves, and it looks absolutely incredible. Check out the Star Wars Black Series Boba Fett helmet below. Read More »

But Star Wars novelist Chuck Wendig, the writer of the Aftermath trilogy, has tried to make sense of it. Read More »
