Thanks to Ali, over at for sharing some new images in the lively discussion happening on our Hobbit discussion board regarding the recent Entertainment Weekly article on The Hobbit.¬† Two additional pictures are apparently available on the tablet version of the article that celebrates The Hobbit and Comic-Con. In one of the new images, we see a ‘kinder, gentler’ version of Thorin (right), as well as Dwalin and Balin putting their heads together to discuss something in Bag End while Bilbo stands behind them overhearing their conversation¬† (looking a bit worried). They also have scans of the article for those who haven’t run out and purchased the real thing yet.

Be sure to stay tuned for massive coverage of Comic-Con, happening in San Diego July 12-15, by our many talented TORn staffers who will be your eyes and ears on everything Hobbity (including the much-anticipated TORn Comic-Con Hobbit panel (Thursday, July 12, from 10:15 to 11:15 a.m., in room 6DE – read the full article about it here)
