The Broship of the Rings of a contemporary spin on classic literary characters. In fact, it turns these innocent, lovable and even lazy hobbits into trend-loving hipsters. Considering that everything 'Lord of the Rings' has been considered pop culture for some time now, this is definitely an appropriate adaptation.

Illustrated by cartoonist Noelle Stevenson, the Broship of the Rings are endearing, funny and incredibly clever. Rife with great one-liners, Stevenson's modernized literary characters are seen saying things like, "Never did hear of a hipster before" and "I'm telling you bro...chicks can't resist my 'Horn of Gondor.'"

Started about a month ago, the Broship of the Rings has already gained quite the following. With a new addition more than twice a week, Stevenson has created a series that addresses the heart of a hipster in a playful way.
