Week In Geek- The Outsider Finale, Artemis Fowl, & Strange Adventures w/ Tom King

Geeklings, it’s Monday which means it’s the start of a brand new week here at I Am Geek. Well, if we’re splitting hairs, Monday generally signifies the fact that it’s a brand new week everywhere but do you really want to split hairs on a Monday? Don’t be that guy or gal or underwater sea creature. This is Monday, let’s take things a little easy. Which oddly enough will be the motto for this column. Something quick and light for you guys to jump into to warm you up to the rest of the week.

I’m not exactly sure where we’re heading this week, content-wise, and that’s kind of exciting. Actually it’s not, it’s rather annoying. Especially after a light content last week but I blame that mostly on all things Love Is Blind related. That and… I don’t know, just wasn’t a good writing week. Despite all that drama, not having a content map allows me to live my writing life from day to day. I’ve got a list of columns in storage so I can always defer to that if need be. You will have content and you will enjoy it. This isn’t so much a demand as it is… well, I suppose it’s sort of a demand.

Let’s get to this week. I’m dangerously close to finishing the last volume of Locke & Key and I don’t think I’m emotionally ready for it, but I want to find out if I am. So let’s get things started with…

The OutsiderThe Outsider season finale- I suppose this could be listed as a series finale too unless HBO looks to continue the stories of Holly Gibney. For readers, there will be more stories in Stephen King’s upcoming novella collection, If It Bleeds. Of course, this all depends if Holly makes it out of the finale alive. (insert dangerous sounding music here) I know the answer to that as does everyone else who read the book, but the rest of you will have to tune in Sunday to find out. The Outsider has not only been a tremendous Stephen King adaption, but it also made for some tremendous television. This has really filled my True Detective itch pretty solidly and I’m sad to see the series wrap. This series has been dark, brooding, mysterious, and all types of addictive. All the ingredients that make for great viewing. Hopefully, this isn’t the last we see of some of these characters… but you never know.

Artemis Fowl trailer- New trailer alert. Disney dropped its newest trailer for Artemis Fowl, based off of the famous book series, and I have to say this looks like a lot of fun. Some of the CGI is a bit “meh” but we’ve got Josh Gad dressed up as a dwarf so already we’re heading in the right direction. P.S. Gad is killing it on Avenue 5 on HBO. Sometimes it’s alright for our movies to have that kind of ancient mythical history/National Treasure like vibe… but for kids. Should be fun.

Good thing the drought ends this Wednesday when his newest series, Strange Adventures drops with art from long time partner Mitch Gerads and Doc Shaner. If you’ve ever read King’s Mister Miracle or his The Vision run then you know when he does a maxi-series that it can’t be missed. And it will probably win a ton of awards. This is an all-star team in comic books and I can’t wait to get my hands on this one.

There you have it Geeklings. What are you looking forward to the most this week? Be sure to sound off in the comments or throw me a line over on Twitter. I’ll see you throughout the week with new content for your eyeholes. Once I figure out what the hell I’m going to write about…
