In this amazing stop-motion short, created by counter656 over the course of 20 days using nearly 3,500 images, S.H. Figuarts versions of the Caped Crusader and the Clown Prince of Crime go at it, mano a mano, until the supervillain calls in the big guns — a trio of Gundams.

The decades-old battle Earth Federation and the Principality of Zeon continues, at least through this weekend, as the RX-78-2 Gundam and Char’s Zaku face off in Ngee Ann City, Singapore.

To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Gundam model kit, Bandai Namco Asia and Takashimaya Department Store have staged “Gundam Docks at Singapore,” a showcase of more than 200 models from the series. However, the centerpiece of the exhibit is undoubtedly the nearly 20-foot replicas of RX-78-2 Gundam and Char’s Zaku displayed in the plaza.

By and large, people outside Japan can’t fully understand how big Mobile Suit Gundam is. In some ways, it’s a cultural equivalent to American superheroes — and now one artist has melded the two.

Aburaya Tonbi created renditions of Marvel’s Avengers (including Spider-Man) in the style of Mobile Suit Gundam, albeit in a chibi style. Robot versions of Avengers have been made before — even ones loosely inspired by Gundam — but Campbell’s renditions hit at authenticity, while also being cute.

Comics A.M. | ‘Asterix’ family feud continues with Uderzo lawsuit

Asterix

Asterix

Legal | Asterix co-creator Albert Uderzo has filed a legal complaint against his daughter Sylvie and her husband Bernard Choisy, claiming “psychological violence.” The dispute began in 2007, when Sylvie and Bernard were dismissed from their positions at Les Éditions Albert René, which published Asterix; a year later, Uderzo sold his stake in the company to Hachette Livre. The two filed their own legal challenge in 2011, claiming Uderzo, who is now 86, was being exploited by others. In this week’s filing, Uderzo says he is perfectly capable of managing his own affairs, and adds, “The sole purpose of these acts is to undermine our psychological integrity and to hasten our debility, in order to get their hands on our legacy, which they covet.” [The Guardian]
