So Comic-Con was last weekend, and though I couldn’t go, I was riveted to the news that came in. Comics aren’t just for geeks like me anymore, as the movies based on them and influenced them dominate the theaters and are starting in on television. This week on the ‘schmetsy: inspired by the films inspired by the comics.

Row 1: The slit throat choker from Burlesquers (on sale!) would make a fantastic zombie accessory, as would the “I heart brains” necklace from beatblack. Inspired (loosely) by the upcoming AMC show The Walking Dead, which I couldn’t be more excited about: smart long-form zombie narrative on the network that brings us Mad Men.

Row 2: this delightful raven vase from laurawallstaylor and vintage rainbow bridge bookplates from oiseaux relate to the iconography of Thor (Odin’s ravens flank his crazy gilt glitz throne; the rainbow bridge to Asgard I am only hoping with show up in the film). And while I’m interested in Kenneth Branaugh’s take on this film, I was even more excited to learn Joss Whedon is now going to be in charge of the Avengers movie which will be following a year later!

Row 3: Cowboys vs. Aliens. Daniel Craig vs Harrison Ford. Harrison Ford playing a bad guy. Jon Favreau directing, in the vein of John Ford. Ok, enough gushing. How perfect is this print of cowboys and cowgirls shooting space invaders by morrisetsy? He has a whole series in that retro colorscheme. Or this Space Invaders-themed western shirt by mydumpbear — totally my style of geekery.

Row 4: Last but not least, pursemaker farfallagialla is so smart to have made some really nice Ramona Flowers bags in advance of when the film of (my personal favorite graphic novel series ever) Scott Pilgrim arrives. Not only is Ramona the love interest that Scott Pilgrim must fight a league of seven evil exes to date, but her rad purse actually features into the plot a few times, and contains a subspace tunnel. This high-quality reproduction is definitely the go-to bag of the season!
