Hello fellow Jojo fans! It’s time for another Stand post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome powers. Now, strike a pose, and let’s begin!
Cream Stand User: Vanilla Ice Type: Close-Range Anime Debut: Stardust Crusaders EP 42 Appearance: An extremely large and tall humanoid figure with a head like an executioner’s cowl. It has a white body, and its cowl is blue. Powers/Abilities: Exceptional strength, Void: This dangerous ability makes this Stand one of the most powerful in part 3. Void allows Cream to create a portal which disintegrates anything in its path. It can also devour itself to become a mobile spherical portal. Vanilla is completely invulnerable when inside the portal, and seems to be the only person not effected by the disintegration. Cream is completly undetectable in this form, and even the main sense are rendered useless by it. Its main weakness, however, is that the user must look at his surroundings from the portal, as he is blind when inside Cream’s body.
Cream was definitely one of the most terrifying Stands in part 3. His appearance leaves a chill down your spine, and he’s absolutely ruthless in battle. He only had a very small appearance, but ended up killing off two of the main characters.
Nut King Call Stand User: Joshu Higashikata First Appearance: JJL Chapter 20 (Part 8) Type: Close-Range Appearance: A purple, bug-like humanoid with a screws embedded in its head. It also has a collar composed of many nuts and bolts. Ability: Nuts and Bolts: This unique power allows Joshu to create artificial joints. These joints are created when the stand applies nuts and bolts to a target. If any of these nuts are removed, the part will be dismantled. This essentially allows Joshu to remove body parts painlessly. They will reattach if the target is out of range.
Hello fellow book lovers! It’s time for another book covers post. I hope you guys are ready to cringe with laughter as we take a look at some amazing “works of art”. Now, let’s begin!
Maximum Revenge by Jose A. Toro Released: March 17th, 2016 Genres: Fiction, Crime Thriller, and Suspense. Short Summary: A scientist goes made with power after creating an ultra deadly virus.
I really like the premise of this book because of my love of medical dramas. Unfortunately, it fails completely in the art department. The cover depicts a very blurry scientist without a face. Also, because of chemistry, there’s a poor j.peg of a beaker in the left hand side. It could be so much better with just a little more time!
The Majestic Committee by Gerald Goble Released: August 6th, 2016 Genres: Science Fiction, Fiction Short Summary: An army major is sent to work for a secret committee that is researching an unknown aircraft.
Another fascinating concept for a story that’s completely ruined by the horrible excuse for a cover. It’s like they don’t even try anymore! The cover depicts some absolutely pathetic pictures on a blue background. It’s really hard to tell what any of these images are, and if this was released again, I’d hire a better artist!
Hello boils and ghouls! It’s that haunting time of year again! Since Halloween is just around the corner, it’s time for some disturbing art. Now, let’s begin this harrowing journey into your deepest fears! Mwahahahah!
Night Creeper by Zdzislaw Beksinski Date Made: Unknown
This is a disturbing, yet awesome work by “Polish Surrealist”, Beksinski. It takes place in a dystopian apocalyptic future with burning buildings, and smoldering bodies. The whole atmosphere is extremely foreboding, and to make matters worse, there’s a bandaged, multi-legged, abomination that appears to be running at something. I’d love to hear what you guys think of it in the comments’ section below.
Grave Goods by Jeff Christensen Oil on Canvas
This is an awesomely dark work by “American Artist”, Christensen. It’s a nighttime piece that gives off many instances of “Memento Mori” The main characters of the work are all unsettling entities with garish jewelry. There’s a huge skeleton in the center of the work, and it appears to be surrounded by sharp-toothed cult members. In conclusion this is a very uniquely scary paining that is guaranteed to send shivers down your spine. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.
Hello fellow Book Lovers! It’s time for some more crappy covers. I hope you guys are ready to cringe and laugh! Now, let’s begin!
Griddle Creek: Fool’s Gold (Book 2) by M. Malenga Released: October 12th, 2017 Genres: Children’s Humor, Comic Book Pages: 32 Quick Summary: A typical museum heist story with quirky humor.
I know this is supposed to be a kid’s book, but this art is completely unacceptable! It seems like the artist just searched on Google Images for a picture of a diamond, and placed it on a black and grey background. If you are going to create a comic book, at least make the front cover appealing.
Facemate by Steven M. Greenberg Released: July 10th, 2019 Genre: Fiction Quick Summary: An Autistic boy discovers a futuristic dating site, and acquires unimaginable power. 386 pages
What we have here is missed potential. The plot of this book seems really neat, and is definitely a unique concept. Unfortunately, the front cover makes it fall flat on its face. What we have is 4 “people” that are 3D nightmares. The graphics are extremely unsettling, and seem to delve into the “Uncanny Valley”.
Hello fellow Pokemon Trainers! It’s Monday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more crazy entries. Now, let’s begin!
Rasclobber (The Amateur Pokemon) #153 Dragon/Fighting Type Ability: Iron Fist (Increases the power of punching moves by 20%) Gender Ratio: 87.5% male to 12.5% female Evolves from Reptyke at Level 16 and Evolves into Batterex at Level 36 Ht: 3’11” Wt: 91.9 lbs Appearance: A small dragon with fists instead of claws. Base Stats: HP: 75, Attack: 95, Defense: 80, Sp. Atk: 40, Sp. Def: 60, Speed: 55 Base Stat Total: 405 (Extremely decent stats for a middle evolution) Weak to Flying, Ice, Dragon, Psychic, and 4x Weak to Fairy.
Entry: It fights using a combo of its arms and tail to confuse enemies. It lacks stamina for a drawn-out battle.
Hello fellow book lovers! It’s time for another humorous art post. Today, we will be looking at some more bad covers. Now, let’s take a dive into the bizarre world of hilarious cringe.
Angela’s Arm by Roland Allnach Release Date: October 30th, 2018 Genres: Horror and Suspense 204 Pages Small Summary: A tale about a girl with a serpent for an arm.
Ok, I actually kind of love this cover because it reminds me of one of my favorite Anime. Unfortunately, it isn’t perfect, and I can see a lot of room for improvement. First of all, the hand has six fingers, which means that the owner isn’t human. Second, the book’s title is written in the standard “blood red” text to emphasize that it’s scary and edgy. Lastly, the background looks photoshopped.
Civil War II: The Battle for the Future of America by E. Robert Gurr Release Date: May 3rd, 2019 295 Pages Genres: Political Thriller and Suspense Short Summary: A war pits a teacher and a hacker against each other.
This cover is the epitome of boring and wasted potential. It’s just text on a white background. It tells nothing of what happens in the book, and looks like it was pieced together in about five minutes. Also, we gotta be edgy, so there’s more of that laughable “blood red” text.
Hello fellow Pop-culture enthusiasts! It’s time for another TV Tropes post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome references. Now, let’s begin!
The Fake Cutie: A deception trope that used in many forms of media, often in video games. It occurs when an overly childish female character suddenly switches personalities, and becomes a badass that terrifies even the most fearsome of foes. Some examples of this include; B.B Hood from the Darkstalkers video games. She appears as a Little Red Ridding Hood character with a wooden basket and the standard red outfit. This, however, is a massive farce, and her true colors come out in combat. She develops a slasher smile and packs enough heat in her skirt to make Arnold Schwarzenegger blush. Next, we have Flowey from Undertale. Flowey is the main antagonist of the pacifist mode. He masquerades as an innocent flower, however those who don’t what their backs will see his true personality come through. He’s actually a demonic entity with a sadistic view on life. Lastly, we have Gogo Yubari from Kill Bill. She originally appears as a standard 17-year-old Japanese school girl. This, as usual, is a disguise for her true persona, an absolutely insanely savage fighter with a giant meteor hammer.
Gogo from Kill Bill.
Lethal Chef: Another common and often comedic trope found in all forms of media. It occurs when someone is so bad at cooking, that upon consumption their food can cause a variety of bizarre effects. These effects include; vomiting, change in color, breathing fire, falling unconscious, or death. Some well known Lethal Chefs are; Mizuki Himeji from Baka and Test: Summon the Beasts. This incredibly cute female protagonist cooks food that looks absolutely delicious. Unfortunately, upon consuming it, you are subjected to hallucinations of death. Next, we have Linguini from Ratatouille. Before he met the amazing blue rat, he made a soup that was so bad, he puked upon consuming it. Lastly, we have Chie Satonaka and Yukiko Amagi from Persona 4. During the camp section of the game, the two High School girls decide to make curry. Unfortunately, they aren’t the best chefs, and the ending result, referred to as “Mystery Food X”, causes the protagonist to immediately spit it out, and fall unconscious.
