Every so often, I have to come to the pages of I Am Geek and make a confession. These confessions don’t come easy. I like to believe that I have consumed a great deal of pop culture in my life maybe even enough for two lifetimes. I’m not here to measure or brag… which is a lie. I’m totally bragging. Even with that mass consumption … Continue reading Dune Trailer- What’s In the Box, Sandworms, & Oscar Isaac’s Tremendous Beard
I always get a little nervous when I put something out in the universe that depends on the involvement of others to get off the ground. When I came to you last week looking to create the first ever I Am Geek Mailbag, I had already written two columns in my head. The first column where there was actual participation and I answered all your … Continue reading I Am Geek Mailbag Vol. 1
Sunday morning I woke up feeling like my face had been melted. Now sure, some of that probably had to do with the amount of vodka I drank the night before. At one point I turned to my wife and asked why don’t we drink more vodka only to discover why the following morning. But underneath that hangover was a man who was all types … Continue reading DC Fandome- An Absolute Success
Geeklings, we are only a few short days away from DC Fandome and let me tell you, I’m getting antsy in my pantsy. Perhaps it’s the yearning for a collection of new content that has me hyped considering COVID has sucked up all that is awesome this year. Perhaps it’s the need to see more of Matt Reeve’s Batman or James Gunn’s Suicide Squad that … Continue reading DC Fandome Schedule Is HERE!
In a year without comic cons we’ve had to turn our attention to the internet. Even years with cons we turn our attention to the internet but this year more than ever. We can’t go to convention centers because #pandemic so we need to get our fixes somewhere and the internet seems to be the safest place. Well, the safest place not to contract a … Continue reading Does Disney Have An Online “Con” Planned For 2020?
Wednesday has always been a favorite day of the week for us here at I Am Geek. Not only does it symbolize that the current week is halfway done, “hummmmp daaaaaaay”, but it’s also the celebration of the greatest weekly tradition. New. Comic. Book. Day. I live for Wednesday. I Am Geek lives for Wednesday. There is just something so pure about knowing that there … Continue reading New Comic Tuesday?- How DC Is Making Things A Bit Difficult For LCBS
Geeklings, it’s been months since I’ve had the opportunity to say this so please give me a minute to give this moment the grandeur it deserves. HAPPY NEW COMIC BOOK DAY! That’s right, after two looooooong months we finally have new comics to read as Wednesday starts to make sense again. Granted, this isn’t a traditional New Comic Book Day, I’m aware that not all of your local comic … Continue reading New Comics AND The Snyder Cut
Geeklings, a Happy Would Be New Comic Book Day to you all! That’s right, this New Comic Book Day has been thankfully put on hold in a time of much uncertainty in the comic industry. If you recall last week’s edition of the Pull List we discussed how Diamond would not be distributing books to your favorite local comic book shops putting them in a financial … Continue reading Pull List- No Comics Edition
Geeklings, a happy if not sort of muted New Comic Book Day to you all. It’s funny, ironic funny not ha-ha funny, looking back at last week’s Pull List and seeing how much has changed in the short span of a week. Things are kind of tense and the world we’re living in right now isn’t the same world we were living in last Wednesday. And I … Continue reading Pull List- Marvel’s Teens Get Outlawed, Spider-Woman Returns, & Robin Turns 80
As I was driving into work this morning listening to the Bill Simmons Podcast talk about what quarterbacks would be going where during the offseason it dawned on me, I miss football. I miss the Sunday get-togethers. I miss bitching about how bad the New York Football Giants are. I miss the food, my god the food. But most of all, I missed the fantasy … Continue reading Fantasy Sports Are Cool But How About Fantasy Pop Culture?
