Reader "girlcreeture" just dropped us a line with a heads up about a whole slew of new-to-us images from Chris Nahon’s Blood: The Last Vampire, the live-action adaptation of the badass anime of the same name, both from 24 FPS and the blog Silicon & Cigarettes.
Yesterday it was Hellsing, and today Organic Hobby sent us word that a new statue based on Uno Makoto's manga version of Top Cow character Witchblade will be released in July. The sexy badass stands 8" tall with two different versions of her blade and a custom base. She'll retail for $50.

Finally, after years of talking about it as if it were some Holy Grail of unfound cinema, you guys will finally get a chance to see the first Death Note (review) in theaters next month!
The live-action version of the manga Death Note (review) has been around for a couple years now, but where's the American love?
