Stephen Hawking Biopic 'The Theory of Everything' is Full of Science and Feels

Stephen Hawking Biopic ‘The Theory of Everything’ is Full of Science and Feels

Stephen Hawking is undoubtedly one of the greatest scientific minds ever. His contributions to physics and cosmology changed the way we look at time and our universe.

Weird Al’s Still Got It—”Word Crimes” is the “Blurred Lines” Parody to Rule Them All

I have been a fan of “Weird Al” Yankovic since I was kid. Whether it was memorizing all the lines in “Albuquerque” or singing “Amish Paradise” whenever “Gangster’s Paradise” came on the radio, Weird Al and his well crafted lyrics encouraged my creativity and taught me that the potential for humor is everywhere. For decades...

16 of the Best League of Legends Cosplayers at Anime Expo 2014

Anime Expo 2014 was incredible, not only for the anime, but also for video games, manga, cosplay and geek culture. It also combined two of my favorite things: League of Legends and cosplay.

Wil Wheaton Says What We Were All Kinda Thinking About ‘Gotham’

Wil Wheaton’s new show on SyFy premiered last week (congrats, by the way) and he, like many of us, has some reservations about the upcoming Gotham, which will chronicle Jim Gordon and not Batman. So he made his own trailer to describe what the show might cover sans Batman. BAT ASS.

Guys, an Xbox Is Not Worth Dying For

Guys, an Xbox Is Not Worth Dying For

As a gamer, you spend literally hundreds, if not thousands, of hours playing games, beating bosses, and earning achievements. I know that if I go through a level and it doesn’t save properly, I’m a little miffed that I have to complete the mission or level all over again. I can only imagine the anger...

BatDad is the dad you always wanted

You know how you always thought your dad was embarrassing when you were a kid? He wore fanny packs to Disneyland. He talked about all the humiliating moments from your childhood in front of your friends. He gave you “the talk” before your first date IN FRONT THE DATE. But I’m not sure anyone’s dad...

Are you an aspiring comic book artist or writer? Top Cow is looking for you!

Whether it’s a story or character of their own invention, or the title they’ve loved since childhood, I think anyone who loves comics dreams of someday writing or illustrating their own book.
