Check These Out: Amusing Hipster-Themed 'Broship' LOTR Comic Art
"Never did hear of a hipster before." I am a hardcore Lord of the Rings fanatic (yep I'll be seeing Return of the King, all 4.5 hours, tomorrow in theaters) and it couldn't be more perfect timing to feature a fantastic set of illustrations from the internet that pay homage to my favorite movies. As I'm sure everyone knows, the Extended Lord of the Rings finally hit Blu-Ray tomorrow, so it's all-out LOTR around here. I came across a fantastic set of web comics on Tumblr made by Gingerhaze (aka Noelle Stevenson) that are part of a series nicknamed the "Broship of the Ring" as they basically re-imagine LOTR characters as hipsters.
It's brilliant, I love ’em, and I had to share these with everyone! Click on any to see her full Tumblr gallery.
As beautiful as Liv Tyler is as Arwen, I just love that comic, it sums it up perfectly: "Arwen works at the Rivendell Fair-Trade Coffee Shop because of course she does." Haha, so true! There's a growing number of mini-comics that Noelle made for the Broship of the Ring series (a few we didn't even show you!) over on her Tumblr or her official blog, so head over there to see more. My other favorite is the "@Sauron trollin' Gandalf" one, just because it truly contemporizes the character and puts a hilarious little hipster spin on it, too. I hope we get to see more like that. If you haven't picked it up yet, make sure you order the LOTR:EE Blu-Ray set, as you don't want to miss out on having that in your collection. See you back in Middle Earth!
