Every day here at Doom HQ we receive tons of tips from our readers about really cool stuff from the world of geek, as well as promotional materials for new films, comic books, collectibles, and much more. While we do our best to bring you as much of it as possible, we don’t always have enough geek manpower available to cover it all on a daily basis. But we hate the idea of all of this really cool stuff wasting away in our inbox. How could we NOT cover it? Hence why we’ve resurrected our long-defunct column Bits Of Doom, now rebranded and revamped as Doom Digest, a collection of easily digestible bits of news, videos, photos, and other goodies.
Today: Battlestar Galactica coasters, True Skin teaser, Archie of Archie fame and Valerie from Josie and the Pussycats are having a baby, The Walking Dead Season 2 Zombie case, Stanley Chow’s Star Trek art, plus Bits Of Doom.
Battlestar Galactica Coaster Set
QMX has a set of four coasters based on the Colonial seal from the Syfy series, Battlestar Galactica. The set contains four coasters modeled on the phoenix plaque. Of course, it sold out immediately, but you can sign up to be notified when it becomes available again.
Archie & Valerie Are Having A Baby
Archie from Archie comics and Valerie from Josie and the Pussycats are married and having a baby! Pre-order Archie #633 to jump on the story. The issue will be released on May 23, 2012.
True Skin Teaser
Watch this teaser here below for True Skin a short that will be out this Summer. According to the filmmakers, who will be developing True Skin as a feature film, the idea behind this short film is to explore how robotic augmentations will affect a future society and ultimately ask the question of what it means to exist.
