This 1930 noir thriller called The Bat Whispers stars a crime fighting character that looks an awful lot like Batman.
Maybe this is what Bruce's father was up to before he was gunned down in a dark alley?
I wouldn't be surprised if The Bat Whispers inspired the creation of Batman, as it predates Batman's first comic book appearance by nine years, but I bet the Bat in this movie doesn't have a sweet utility belt and acrobatic Boy Wonder sidekick!
This Disney themed series by Rodolfo Loaiza show the dark side of animated life, placing the dainty princesses in some precarious predicaments and bringing the horror of fairy tale fame to the foreground.
They're dark but generally tongue-in-cheek, so even Disney himself wouldn't ban these goofy spoof pics, except for the one where Snow White has a drinking problem, and the one where Maleficent does drugs.....who am I kidding?! Disney would HATE Rodolfo's works!
Better check them out now, before they are eliminated from the interwebs forever....

The composite sketch above is by Brian Joseph Davis, who utilized police sketch software to give us an idea of what Count Dracula, the fictional character from Bram Stoker's Dracula, should have looked like.
I must admit that this is one of the most unusual, and original, takes on Dracula I've ever seen.
Maybe they should reboot the Dracula movie and set it in the deep south?

What's the best way to protect the stuff crammed into your garden shed? Post a friendly Dalek out front and watch trespassers get the extermination they deserve.
This Doctor Who approved TARDIS shed and Dalek statue were created by Einstein19, who created these fun backyard additions a decade ago and finally decided to share them with the rest of the interwebs!

These awesome, and really short, animated shorts are by Power Rangers fan Mike McCraw, and they look like the perfect way to start off a sweet new animated series!
Seriously, I wasn't a big fan of the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers TV show (I prefer Ultraman or Guyver), but I would definitely watch an animated series drawn in this comic book style, and any show that features heroes beating up on giant monsters gets my vote!
Mike- it's been a while since your last short was posted, when are we gonna see more?!
