The coin-operated kiddie ride. Once the delight of children, now they are increasingly relegated to nostalgic memory. As they should be. Everyone remembers the sheer pleasure you got as a wee child, when your parents handed you a quarter, and you were able to climb aboard and set off in a grand adventure.…
Be still my robotic heart! The level of detail is astounding and makes the renders look more like production models than concept art. The robotic organs are a fantastic concept and give the robots a sort of macabre humanity. The next sci-fi blockbuster needs make use of these robot designs.
When Gandalf and crew plumbed the depths of Moria they did not expect to encounter such a variety of strange creatures. From an unhappy cat to a monster obsessed with cookies, the mines of Moria contained more beings than you can possibly count. How many can you identify?
Candy wins out every time. Mike Maihack of Cleopatra in Spaaace! fame shared another one of his delightful Batgirl and Supergirl comics today. Sometimes I despair Supergirl will never come to take her role as a crime fighter seriously.
It's quite likely that these images will be the most adorable thing you look upon today. The Geek Kids Collection by Andy Fairhurst consists of kid versions of your favorite geeky heroes and villains drawn in a heart-meltingly cute fashion.

And who wouldn't want to ride on a giant centaur train?
Did what you imagined look like this?
They are coming for us all.
I love Mondo. You love Mondo. Everyone loves Mondo. It's scientifically proven that Mondo posters are better than other posters. And I'd argue that no one does Mondo posters better than the subject of today's Focus, Tom Whalen.
This week's Focus is on famed cover painter, Alan Gutierrez. "Capturing the romance of space exploration" is how he defines his work, and that's a perfect description. Alan's work has been featured on the covers of magazines, books, games, and on display in galleries. His work even appeared many years ago here on io9.
From the Deviantart gallery of Meghan Murphy comes the most evil of all Dalek plans: Doctor Who Cosplay. Seriously, are there no limits to their machinations?
I'm really loving the incongruity of this piece.
I love DeviantArt. Someone had shown an interest in doing a regular post highlighting various artists on there but then didn't so I thought I'd hijack the idea and share some of my favorites. I'll try not to overlap with stuff that has been posted before, but that's not always easy to do. This week's focus is space…
