Being tall and all, I’m a huge fan of DC Comics mainly because of Wonder Woman, but I do love Marvel and I’m especially fond of the X-Men. Dude, the X-Men are legit! So many different mutants with insanely cool powers, and you’ve got to admit, the movies are great and all, but nothing beats the classic 1992 cartoon.
Now of course I was born in 91, but as a kid I did enjoy watching the X-Men all the way until it’s finale in 97′. That show was so good! X-Men cartoon was not only cool because each of the characters, but the intro was very cool and this new stop motion video makes it even cooler! Have you seen it? Well if you haven’t seen it, then watch it below. The video is by Kyle Roberts and his buddies, and the entire video took 4,000 stills and 60 backgrounds. Wow, a lot of work! But the result is a huge payoff and the video is making its way around the web and reminding folks of how much we craved Saturday Morning cartoons.
If I thought my week couldn’t get any better, well I was wrong, it just got a million times better. You may be asking yourself, why? Or you’re just scanning to the bottom of this post to see why it got better. Well let me explain what happened. No, I didn’t find true love or become a Super Saiyan (still awaiting that glorious day,) but something more epic happened; Marvel UK released a brand new trailer for the upcoming film The Avengers.
You know I’m a geek, and you also know that I’m madly in love with superheroes. My background on Twitter (follow me @thinksoul25) is the ultimate collection of Marvel characters. My favorite thing to draw is superheroes, and some days I like to lay down on my bed, close my eyes, and daydream about having powers (yeah, I’m a geek…I know.) So when I first found out last year that they were releasing a movie about the Avengers, I almost passed out. Then the trailer came out, and I was speechless watching it over & over again.
So now Marvel releases yet another brand new trailer for The Avengers, and this time it’s quite the epic experience. We actually get to see the Avengers assembling in order to fight this enemy threatening the global safety. Not only do we get to see glimpses of each Avenger being recruited, but the trailer ends with an awesome shot of the Avengers standing in a circle getting ready to unleash major damage; such an amazing shot!
I was already stoked about this film, but now I’m uber anxious for May 4th to arrive. The Avengers and Rise of the Dark Knight are probably going to be two films I can’t wait to see this year. I might even have to see them over & over again. I saw X-Men: First Class over and over again (about 4 times,) so I know The Avengers is going to be one of those films I have to watch again, again, and then yes, once more for the sake of humanity!

I haven’t drawn anything in quite some time so last night I figured it would be nice to draw superheroes & comic related art. If I had to choose between drawing superheroes or beautiful fashion related sketches (which I love drawing,) hands down I’d chose powers over fabrics any day.
So after gathering all my materials (pencils, eraser, and sketch book) I began perusing the Web in search of some inspiration. I found some awesome things, but in the midst of my search I ran across the most amazing thing I have ever seen; series of large murals featuring retro Marvel comics.
Some of the artwork actually comes in a few sizes, but a majority of the artwork come in a large mural format. I know it’s geeky to want to have Marvel comic themed artwork in your living room, but I’ve got to admit the Marvel Comics Retro Love Comic Murals are far from geeky. It’s this innovative pop art expression, and I’m a big fan of pop art & retro loved themed comic panels, so I’m totally going to buy one or two murals.
The murals range from $124 to $279 (the one to the right cost that much because it’s 96″ x 96″). Even if you’re not a fan of the loved themed ones, then you can also check out some of the awesome Marvel Comic murals that featuring some amazing superheroes. There are so many different options to choose from, so the best thing to do is visit the website & began bookmarking the ones you want to buy.
Art.com & AllPosters.com both sale these murals, so click the links below to browse the selection. It’s so geeky yet very chic! It’s the perfect wall art solution for a geek-chic female who wants to take her modern apartment & add a retro vibe. It’s also great for guys that love their bachelor pads and want to show off a passion for Marvel without going over board like Steve Carrell’s room in the 40-year-old Virgin. It’s a nice balance of geek decor infused with modern edge that make its super cool.
So to all my fellow geeks & nerds out there, if you want to show off your style without going overboard, then I suggest you check out these murals and find one or two that suit your taste. What’s the point in having geek tendencies if you don’t get to show them off in your living space? I love comic book artwork, so you know I have to show it off my living space. If I’ve learned anything from my years of watching HGTV, I’ve learned it’s important to show off your personality. Now that’s the beauty of decorating. Bits & pieces of you should be incorporated in your design. So if you’re geeky, then show it off!
