Authors, showrunners, directors and horrible people.

​Relive the trauma of the Game of Thrones' Red Wedding all over again!

Kudos to HBO for this marketing campaign for the Game of Thrones season three set, which leads this week's home video releases.

Chilean illustrator Adolfo Torino Nuñez takes science fiction characters modern audiences are familiar with and chucks them several decades into the past. The resulting artwork resembles a cross between superhero periodicals you'd find at your neighborhood malt shoppe and weirdo bootleg comics collecting gravel grit… » 7/30/12 9:25am 7/30/12 9:25am
