Weekend Odds & Ends & Open Thread – The Phanfic Menace, Spider-Dog & More



-Here’s a Kickstarter for an Episode I fanfic novel supposedly based on George Lucas’ original drafts.

-Kimota! New Miracleman stories are coming, including one whose mere proposed existence pissed off Alan Moore back in the day.

-The finalists for the next fan-submitted Lego ideas include massive builds of Ghostbusters HQ, General Grievous’ flagship and Wayne Manor…so you know they’ll end up picking the Hubble Telescope.

-The Spider-Dog prank is funnier than similar ones with a zombie, just because of ho harmless the dog actually looks up close. (submitted by Dr.Gonzo82, Gallen_Dugall and my wife)

Left Behind isn’t the only Rapture movie coming this fall – it’ll have to compete with this found-footage knockoff starring Alexa Vega!

-More on that Simpsons/Futurama crossover.

About Author

Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.) Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
