Iron Sky: Nazi’s from the Moon

Why?  Because it has airships in it.  And the Nazi’s ruined airships for us.  So I’m going to watch it when this movie comes out, just so I can see Nazi’s get their ass kicked.  Iron Sky tells a story of how the Nazi’s sent some backup Nazi’s to the moon to hold out and build up forces so that they could one day come back and win World War II.

Whatever.  It’s some kind of goofy Mars Attacks take on Nazi’s in some kind of post-war Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow style.  I doubt I’ll see it in the theaters unless they change up the trailers, or if I’m really bored.  Although, just looking at the poster makes we wonder exactly what will happen.

The trailer reveals Airships (oooooh), gears (aaaaaah), space stations, space battles, A-10 Thunderbolt II Warthogs, hot blonde Nazi cheerleaders, a token black guy, they blow up the Statue of Liberty, and make fun of Sarah Palin.

Yes, it’s a real comic.  It’s created by Antarctic Press who also makes President Evil, Time Lincoln, The Govinator, and others.  You can buy it from Things From Another World (TFAW) which is also where I bought my Firefly / Serenity comics.  Judging by the excerpts, it’s actually looks pretty well done.

Energy catastrophe has struck worldwide! Massive oil spills, nuclear meltdowns and more leave us desperate for viable energy sources to rebuild global society and technology.

Inspired by a little tea party, Sarah Palin hits upon the answer: steam power! She begins the ‘Steam Initiative’, touting geothermal energy as the cure for what ails ya. The heads of Big Oil and Nuclear Power are less than happy with this trend, and they send their agents to do in the Rogue Republican. Luckily, she comes prepared with a set of steam-powered armor! (Standard equipment, don’cha know.)

I have some “Independent” (Republican) friends who will love this…
