A Shade of Pink by KaijuWithNoName
A Shade of Pink
It’s October and this time I decided to do a piece that promotes a cause that is synonymous with this month- Breast Cancer Awareness. If you want to know more information concerning Breast Cancer Awareness and if you want to donate to the National Breast Cancer Foundation Inc., please go to… . Every October, the NFL promotes this cause by having their players incorporate the color pink into their uniforms. I was inspired to contribute to the cause by watching their games. But, instead of the players, I decided to have my favorite female characters with a shade of pink on them. I hope you will enjoy this piece.

TV Trinity by KaijuWithNoName
TV Trinity
RIP Yvonne Craig and Jack Larson

DC comics has lately been successful with their TV shows such as Arrow, Constantine (I still don't get why they cancelled it), and The Flash (I haven't seen Gotham yet, so I can't comment on it....I am hopeful that Supergirl will live up to those shows' standards). These shows were well written and somewhat faithfully brought in characters from the comics. But, for this piece, I decided to go back to the beginnings of DC's live-action shows by showcasing Adam West's Batman, Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman, and George Reeves's Superman.

Now, time for my thoughts on those shows. I loved the original Batman series. Its campy, but it was so much fun. I loved the ensemble cast of villlains on this show. My favorite villain has got to be either Frank Gorshin as the Riddler or Ceasar Romero as the Joker. I'm glad that this show finally got a Blu-Ray/DVD release and has a comic spin-off called Batman '66 (which not only continued the show, but also introduced villains like Harley Quinn and Bane into this universe). Wonder Woman's show was OK. I haven't really seen much of it to really comment on it and I also haven't read the comic book spin-off that was made of it. The Adventures of Superman was an OK show (I kind of wish they threw in at least one villain from the comics in that show instead of only using gangsters and thugs). George Reeves may not exactly have looked like Superman when he's in costume, but when he's Clark Kent he was just perfect. I loved the movie Superman and the Mole Men and the black and white seasons (my favorite episode was the one about Superman punching the meteor), but when it switched to color it became campier. I'm surprised that DC hasn't made a comic spin-off based on this version of Superman (I wish they would so we could possibly, maybe get a crossover like this piece?).

With this fanart, I also tried to model it after the Entertainment Weekly cover (instead with these versions of the trio). Now, what are my thoughts on the upcoming Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice? I am worried that DC is trying to establish a cinematic universe without giving the proper time to develop the characters and the casting does not help to quell my fears. But, who knows? It might be awesome. If not, at least we've got ourselves some good TV shows and movies to watch instead of it. I hope you guys'll enjoy this submission.

See You Space Cowboys by KaijuWithNoName
See You Space Cowboys
I love westerns. There is a simplicity to them that I cannot help but enjoy. The characters that are presented in this genre range from the only force of good in the films/tv shows to being morally questionable. It is interesting to see how they not only explore those characters but also the themes that are presented in each film. Although there are not many westerns made these days, the western mindset still lives on in other mediums. One is sci-fi....specifically, the space western. There are characters from movies, tv shows, comics, video games, etc. that perfectly capture the western style of writing. I decided to pay tribute to seven of my favorite space cowboys- Han Solo (Star Wars), Captain James T. Kirk (Star Trek), Captain Malcolm Reynolds (Firefly), Vash the Stampede (Trigun), Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop), Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Guardians of the Galaxy), and Gene Starwind (Outlaw Star). I hope you guys will enjoy this tribute I did of these characters.

Crawdaunt: Horror of the Deep by KaijuWithNoName
Crawdaunt: Horror of the Deep
Most people who have either been to my page or at least know the name of my account know that I am a massive kaiju film fan. I wanted to do something for kaiju films, but I wanted to do something different. One day I was flipping on deviantart and remembered an awesome piece I saw from Twarda8 :icontwarda8: .…   It inspired me to create my own tribute to both Pokémon, the first real Nintendo game I ever owned, and my favorite film franchise.

Pokémon is awesome! My first true Nintendo game I ever owned was a copy of Pokémon Blue for the Gameboy. It was so much fun to play. I have a strong nostalgia for the Indigo League season of the show (even with its faulty dubbing, courtesy of 4Kids). I admit that I am a bit behind in the games, but I still try to keep up with what's been created. My fandom for the franchise grew when I one day discovered that the entire concept of Pokémon came from Ultraseven. It makes sense, I mean- after all, Seven's capsule monsters (Windam,Miclas, and Agira) were precursors to Pokémon. Many Pokémon as it turned out had been either phyiscally modeled after kaiju (ex: Nidoking looks awfully similar to Baragon) or their moves are similar to those done by kaiju (ex: Squirtle's Hydro Pump is similar to how Gamera flies) and that just further adds to the awesomeness of this franchise.

As for the kaiju part of this fanart, I'm paying tribute to Ebirah: Horror of the Deep/Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster. This is a film that is considered by many to be a low point in the franchise and admittedly it does have its faults. Most of the faults are due to the fact that this film was originally going to have King Kong star as the main kaiju instead of Godzilla (hence why Godzilla had a thing for Kumi Mizuno's character, Dayo). There are problems with the soundtrack to the point that when GNP Crescendo Records released a compilation of the best parts of each Godzilla film (from 1954-1995) they left out tracks from Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster (lets just say that during some scenes I kept expecting Elvis to start surfing in and singing "Blue Hawaii" or something at some point). But, despite all those faults, I still liked the film. If you want a more detailed review, he's Brandon Tenold's awesome review of this movie.…

Overall, I hope that I not only captured the spirit of both franchises, but also made Twarda8 proud.

Would You Like to Know More?

"There are no dangerous weapons. There are only dangerous men."- Sgt. Charles Zim

Robert A. Heinlein's Hugo Award winning novel Starship Troopers is one of the greatest sci-fi novels of all time. Whether or not you agree with the politics presented in the book, it was an important work of science fiction because it explored the politics of a space militia. Many elements of this book also inspired a lot of other works including books (Joe Haldeman's The Forever War, John Steakley's Armor, John Scalzi's Old Man's War, and John Ringo's Legacy of the Aldenata...I am still not sure if Orson Scott Card's Ender series was inspired by Starship Troopers), films (the colonial marines from Aliens were modelled after the Mobile Infantry, in fact they used terms that present in the book ["bug hunt", "drop", etc.]), anime (Yoshiyuki Tomino was directly influenced by Starship Troopers when he created Mobile Suit Gundam), and video games (Warhammer 40,000, StarCraft, Armorines: Project S.W.A.R.M., and the Halo series).

An anime OVA adaptation of Starship Troopers was released in 1988. The designs for the Mobile Infantry's power armors were created by Kaztuaka Miyatake, who is famous for his work on Macross (the source material for the first third of Robotech). Say for one scene on YouTube, I have not seen the anime. I really wish that either someone would post it on YouTube with subtitles or that it would be released in the U.S. on DVD/Blu-Ray. I am very interested to see what they did with the source material.

Perhaps the most famous version of the story, and admittedly the version that got me interested in the Mobile Infantry, was the 1997 film. It was directed by Paul Verhoeven, who directed Robocop (one of my all-time favorite films, which should not have been given a crappy remake) and Total Recall (another great sci-fi film that also got an unnecessary remake). The movie deviates from the book....alot. Sure there are some similarities to the book, but the similarities are only superficial. For example- what happened to the Squishies and why didn't they use the effects to create the power armor from the book?! But unlike some movies that are supposedly based on books but completely deviate from them to the point that they're barely recognizable (Eragon [no relation to Baragon nor Barugon] and World War Z- I am looking at you with strong contempt), I actually kind of like this film. The story's a decent one and the battles between the bugs and the Mobile Infantry are awesome (probably because of the inner THEM, The Black Scorpion, and The Beginning of the End fan in me). If you want another opinion about the differences between the book and the film, I strongly recommend watching The Dom's Lost in Translation review of the film and book.…   I also recommend checking out Krimson Rogue's review of it in his The Book Was Better series.…   Oh, and as for the DVD sequels- I absolutely hated them. The most tolerable one was Starship Troopers: Invasion, but even that was so-so (it felt like I was watching cut-scenes from a video game that you didn't get to play to earn said cut-scenes). I also haven't seen Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles (so I have no opinions on it). On December 2011, it was announced that there would be a remake of Starship Troopers. The results, even if they aren't good, will still be interesting.

With this piece, I wanted to pay tribute to both the book and the legacy that it inspired. I hope you will enjoy this piece.

Well, fellow deviants- looks like I'm back. My schedule is starting to lighten up lately, so be sure to check in for some more submissions.

Anyway, onto a bit of news that I should address and admittedly have been slow in giving an opinion on - Godzilla Japanese cinema. That's right - Toho is making a film series while Legendary Pictures focuses on making its Godzilla trilogy. The news came on March 30, which made me suspect that this was a faux article due to April Fools' occuring that same week. But, it was later revealed that the news was true. The source I learned this information from was the author of Eiji Tsuburaya: Master of Monsters: Defending the Earth with Ultraman, Godzilla, and Friends in the Golden Age of Japanese Science Fiction Film himself, August Ragone, on his blog "The Good, The Bad, and Godzilla".……

As far as my thoughts are opinions, even though I am excited to see more kaiju material [especially since there's a live-action Attack on Titan coming up soon], I have mixed feelings about this. Yes, its great to see Godzilla return [especially with Shinji Higuchi, the visual effects master behind the Gamera trilogy, and Hidaeki Anno, the creator of the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, attached to the project]. The teaser poster does get you excited for the upcoming movie. I am, however, worried that this might potentially hurt the Legendary pictures trilogy. But, it is entirely possible that I may be overreacting and might need to just relax and accept the fact that we're getting some more kaiju awesomeness in the near future. Overall, this will more than likely be an interesting experience for kaiju fans.
