The Boys: Dark Knight Parody

If you're anything like me you walked into the local comic shop, saw this...

...and laughed your arse off. I've never actually read The Boys, but I picked it up just for the cover (and technically speaking, I still haven't read an issue of The Boys yet heh).

Because I like cool things, and because I couldn't find one by someone better at such things than me (read: anyone), I made my own desktop version, with the original Dark Knight cover.

(My screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 btw)

The Greatest Book In The History Of Books

I'm serious with this title- if you have aspirations of becoming a writer, or a publisher (or hell, even a book binder) you need to give up now. You are obsolete. THE most amazing book ever has now been published:

I spotted this in a bookshop today. I don't know how long it's been out, but it is AMAZING. There's only about 8 pages, but the amount of effort that's gone into the design is stunning...

...and that's not even considering how they managed to mass-produce something like this. The Bat-signal in the above picture also LIGHTS UP. Each page of course has the main pop-up, but there are numerous smaller flaps on each page.

I didn't post a pic, but one of the best mini pop-ups is of Wonder Woman's Invisible Plane.

Firestorm even gets a couple of appearances, including this one:

(by Anti-Monitors ribcage)

The best page is the last though, and not just because this is amazing...

...but also because there's a mini JSA WITH A TABLE:

One other thing that sets this apart from anything else in the history of forever, is the detail that's put in to the BACK of each pop-up:

(hey look, it's Firestorm again)

If you like cool things, at the very least you need to have a flip through it in the shop. It's also an amazingly low price of $40NZ.
