[I guess my streak ran out. Also, happy "Spring Forward?"]
Another Marvel x Disney "Disney Kingdoms" comic series has been teased, and it may feature Figment! Yup, yup. Do want. More of this, please.
I mentioned the Mondo "Nothing's Impossible" Disney posters in a previous link dump, but here's a look at more of the art. I'd love to have any or all of these hanging in my home.
Jeffrey Brown is back with more stories about Roan and his adventures in the Jedi Academy. I loved the first one, so I'm definitely on board for another.
Check out this great list over at Book Riot of gifts for your grammar-loving friends. If you're shopping for me, I like the tea cups and bookends *nudge* *wink*
Epic Reads made this fantastic chart of YA retellings. The chart has four major categories (fairy tales, mythology, Shakespeare, and classics), which are further broken down into sub-categories before the book recommendations appear. Great for anyone looking for a fresh read that'll feel familiar.
If you're a fan of Hayao Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke, you may be pleased to know that VIZ Media's Studio Ghibli imprint are releasing two books about it this year:
- An "Art of" book, slated for release in August, which will feature a fresh translation and presentation of the existing book, interviews, concept and character art, and more. It's priced at US$34.99.
- A book titled Princess Mononoke: The First Story by Hayao Miyazaki, which will contain original watercolor art by the master himself, presenting the story as it was when it was still a concept, years before it became a film. This book will also be priced at US$34.99 when it's released in October.
(warning: video auto-play) For World Book Day, The Guardian rounded up a few kids, dressed them up as characters from books, and had them interview the books' authors while in costume. Super cute.
(via Neatorama) A globe made out of cork so you can stick pins in it showing where you've been or where you want to go, created by Chiaki Kawakami.
Apparently, Alexandre Dumas was a wild and crazy guy.
[Have a great week!]
