Stephen Segovia: Thor: The Deviants Saga #3 Cover (2012) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 06 OCT 2012

Issue 3 of Thor: The Deviants Saga now has us right in the middle of a fantastic story, with Thor invading Lemuria, the home of the entire Deviant race, as things get out of hand when Deviant turns against Deviant, not to mention the return of Gilgamesh, perhaps better known as the Forgotten One!

Robert Rodi is behind the keyboard for this one, whilst Jason Paz and Jeff Huet provide the inks for penciller Stephen Segovia’s fantastic visuals. And of course, what is a comic book without a great cover?

This electrifying pounding is dished out courtesy of Stephen Segovia who obviously had far too much time on his hands!

2012 kicked off with Issue 1 of the 5 part Marvel miniseries Thor: The Deviants Saga, which arrived with the following synopsis: The ageless enemies of the eternals turn on Asgard! Beneath the ruins of Asgard, the Deviant villainess Ereshkigal seeks a mystic means of saving her race from extinction – and finds instead a weapon capable of dissolving all reality. With the Eternals who would oppose her mysteriously vanished, Thor stands alone to stop the entire Deviant race from dominating the world!

With Robert Rodi handling the writing duties and Jason Paz the inks, it was left up to penciller Stephen Segovia to whip up this fantastic, electrifying and powerful cover image of everyone’s favorite Asgardian son, Thor!

Military Aircraft: American Lockheed P-38 Lightning (1941) Military Aircraft 11 APR 2012

The Lockheed P-38 Lightning was a World War II American fighter aircraft built by Lockheed. Developed to a United States Army Air Corps requirement, the P-38 had distinctive twin booms and a single, central nacelle containing the cockpit and armament. Named “fork-tailed devil” by the Luftwaffe and “two planes, one pilot” by the Japanese, the P-38 was used in a number of roles, including dive bombing, level bombing, ground-attack, photo reconnaissance missions, and extensively as a long-range escort fighter when equipped with drop tanks under its wings.

The P-38 was used most successfully in the Pacific Theater of Operations and the China-Burma-India Theater of Operations as the mount of America’s top aces, Richard Bong (40 victories) and Thomas McGuire (38 victories). In the South West Pacific theater, the P-38 was the primary long-range fighter of United States Army Air Forces until the appearance of large numbers of P-51D Mustangs toward the end of the war. The P-38 was unusually quiet for a fighter, the exhaust muffled by the turbo-superchargers. It was extremely forgiving, and could be mishandled in many ways, but the rate of roll was too slow for it to excel as a dogfighter.

Final Fantasy XIII Cosplay: Lightning (Yuzu Inumachi) Cosplay 23 MAY 2010

Probably the most important protagonist to step out of the Final Fantasy game world since Cloud, today Cosplay Sundae gives you: Lightning (without the thunder of course)!

Don't ask me about the hands. I don't know what I'm meant to be doing with them!

Final Fantasy XIII is of course the thirteenth installment of the hugely popular Final Fantasy games series, and as was expected, it was pretty much a runaway hit. The game (as have almost all its predecessors) introduced some great new characters for the fan’s to play around with and today it is the turn of Lightning, formerly known as Eclaire (or Claire if you’ve got the American release) Farron.

In an attempt to emotionally reinforce herself and step away from her tragedy after the death of her parents, Lightning cast aside her birth name and went on to become a sergeant of the Guardian Corps. Originally seeking out the Pulse fal’Cie Anima in order to try and save her sister Serah whom the fal’Cie had turned into a l’Cie, things became a little more complicated when the fal’Cie went ahead and transformed Lightning into a l’Cie herself, with the power to summon the Eidolon Odin!

A very independent and determined woman, Lightning does sometimes give off a hint of a compassionate side, though it is difficult to see through the smoke given off by her awesome gunblade known as Blaze Edge – basically the combination of a gun and a sword, the one collapsing over the other, and the gravity control she’s gifted by the device worn on her thumb.

Agile and acrobatic in combat, Lightning is certainly not an opponent you would wish to come face to face with!

The star of today’s Cosplay Sundae entry is a cosplayer going by the name of Yuzu Inumachi and as you can see, this Japanese girl has gone and got it right, pulling off a great looking costume complete with gunblade and the attitude to match!

Nice! :)

Alright, that's more like it. Don't mess with me security type people!
