This weekend Bohemia will be celebrating the release of it’s superhero issue. And if there’s one thing that goes hand in hand with superheroes it’s action figures. Your favorite superheroes from The Avengers to Batman have been immortalized in toy form. But there’s a type of artist who take these toys from retail & turn them into works of art—the toy customizer. GDX Customs is one such artist whose recently been garnering attention for his custom toys. Read on to learn more about the toy customizer’s origins, process, & accomplishments.
We’re celebrating the release of The Amazing Spider-Man film by showing another incarnation of everyone’s favorite webslinger — the Japanese Spider-Man or ” Supaidaman” .
This classic tokusatsu was the result of a licensing agreement between MARVEL & TOEI (the makers of Super Sentai & Kamen Rider) in which both companies were allowed to use each other’s properties in any way they wanted.
If you thought Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man was different from Tobey Maguire’s, then think again. Just check out the official synopsis along with the accompanying trailer:
DISCLAIMER: The following film is rated BH-13 (PG-13) for mild dialogue, language, and violence. Not appropriate for Bohemians under 13.

Yours truly have a special treat for my fellow Bohemians who are Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans. Remember Casey Jones (as played by Elias Koteas) from the 1990 live-action TMNT movie? Well, the crazed hockey mask-wearing vigilante gets his own fan film compliments of aspiring filmmaker Polaris Banks. The 35-minute film stays true to the character’s origins while also making references to the entire TMNT franchise. Casey Jones The Movie is to the TMNT films to what the Nolanverse Batman films is to the Joel Schumacher films. It is unapologetically darker & edgier. Whether you’re a TMNT fan or someone who loves short films, you’ll appreciate the cinematography, the witty dialogue, and the acting. I give the film 4 ½ COWABUNGAS because it’s TOTALLY tubular dude!!!
The highly-anticipated Captain America : The First Avenger premieres this weekend! We here at Bohemia would like to celebrate the patriotic super-hero’s film debut with some Captain America inspired art.
Captain America was created by comicbook legends Joe Simon & Jack Kirby for Marvel Comics’ 1940s predecessor Timely Comics. As the story goes, Steve Rogers, a scrawny kid from New York , made many attempts to enlist in the military. Rogers was denied due to his appearance. His big break would happen in the form of the “super soldier program” which enhanced his physical abilities greatly.
The character is as iconic as Superman, DC Comics’ flagship character. He’s been presented in a wide variety of media such as the 1970 made-for-T.V. CBS films, a notorious 1990 direct-to-video film featuring an Italian Red Skull, & the animated series The Avengers : Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in 2010. It’s fitting that Captain America is also presented in the world of art. Here are some artists’ rendering of The First Avenger.
