Five-star shelves from 4-Star Studios

For ROBOT 6′s fourth-anniversary celebration, I wanted to find some special Shelf Porn, and luckily I remembered that Tim Seeley of Hack/Slash, Revival and ExSanguine (among others) fame had mentioned he might be willing to share some with us a few months ago (around the time I interviewed him for our Robot Roulette feature). So I dropped a note to Tim, who grabbed his camera and started snapping pictures at the studio he shares with several other comic creators. So big thanks to Tim and the rest of the folks at 4-Star Studios!

If you have some shelves of comics, action figures or other related collectibles you’d like to show off, send me a write-up and some jpgs at jkparkin@yahoo.com.

Watch opening of 1990s X-Men cartoon, recreated with action figures

If you’re a comics fan who came of age in the ’90s watching the terribly animated X-Men cartoon as part of the Fox Kids Saturday morning lineup, you’ll likely appreciate this video, which recreates the show’s opening using action figures and stop-motion animation. According to Kyle Roberts’ YouTube page, he used more than 4,000 pictures, and “spent two months rotoscoping and animating all of the special effects.” Add to that the work done by Nathan Poppe on the doodle-style background, and the theme song recreated by Colin Nance and Zach Zellar.

And on top of all of that, there’s a mildly amusing framing sequence. Still, though, the stop-motion credits sequence is the star of the show.

Stop-motion Dark Knightfall pits Batman against Joker with Hot Toys

While the story is confusing, you’re unlikely to see a better fan-made stop-motion film than this trailer for Batman: Dark Knightfall, created by Derek Kwok and Henri Wong using those incredibly (and creepily) life-like Hot Toys figures. The filmmakers’ attention to detail is impressive, from steam and lighting to flying debris and fluttering fabric, giving the short a realistic quality. Well, at least until The Joker arrives, and the action takes an inexplicably bizarre turn (also not easily explained: why Gordon just lies on the ground). A full version is promised soon, so maybe we’ll get all the answers then.

Comic publishers are well represented, with BOOM!, Marvel, DC Comics, Archie, Archaia, Dark Horse, Image, Top Cow, Drawn & Quarterly, Skybound, Vertigo, Top Shelf and more scheduled for various panels on Saturday. CCI also puts the spotlight on Mark Waid, Morrie Turner, Klaus Janson, Stan Goldberg, Gary Gianni, Jim Lee and many more creators, and celebrates anniversaries for Funky Winkerbean, Love & Rockets, Bob the Angry Flower, Courtney Crumrin and the Gays in Comics panel.
