Hobbit Hole Cake

Hobbit Cake 570x570 SR Geek Picks: Arkham Origins Trailer, Gollum Sings Taylor Swift & More

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole and that meant comfort.

Vader’s™ Little Princess — Book Trailer

In this irresistibly funny follow-up to the breakout bestseller Darth Vader™ and Son, Vader—Sith Lord and leader of the Galactic Empire—now faces the trials, joys, and mood swings of raising his daughter Leia as she grows from a sweet little girl into a rebellious teenager. Smart and funny illustrations by artist Jeffrey Brown give classic Star Wars® moments a twist by bringing these iconic family relations together under one roof. From tea parties to teaching Leia how to fly a TIE fighter, regulating the time she spends talking with friends via R2-D2′s hologram, and making sure Leia doesn’t leave the house wearing only the a skirted metal bikini, Vader’s parenting skills are put hilariously to the test.

Jeffrey Brown is the author of numerous graphic novels and comics, including Cat Getting Out of a Bag, Cats are Weird, and Darth Vader™ and Son. A lifelong Star Wars fan, he lives in Chicago with his wife and six-year-old son.

  1. I saw the monster scale earlier and thought “wow, Clover’s massive but I still wanna know what a full grown version looks like”.

    Also, excited for the new Arkham game.

  2. i am so ready for the next batman. i was really hoping for arkham world. but what really worries me is that rocksteady is not handling the game. it aint broke, so dont go trying to fix it. im hoping for the best. like crossing fingers, toes, braiding my hair and crossing that kind of hoping its good

  3. i only came for smeigal…the guy kinda ruined the song. It would have been better if you just made the video to lord of the ring & hobbit clips.

  4. Is that not Dead Pool on the Batman Cover? Isn’t Dead Pool a Marvel character? I love all the new super hero films but have never really kept up with comics.

  5. Never mind, I checked and that guy is “Death Stroke” pretty much the same character IMO.

  6. Got a chuckle out of the He-Man comic
