First off, I’m fully aware that making a Best of 2020 list sounds like an oxymoron. It’s like trying to figure out what was your favorite bone you broke after you tumbled down that hill or choosing which childhood memory was the most traumatic. For me it would concern a tick… and that’s all I’m going to say about that. But here’s the thing, while … Continue reading I Am Geek Best of 2020- Honorable Mentions
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?
Today kind of feels like that moment near the end of Endgame. All of our heroes have dramatically returned from The Snap, I refuse to call it the Blip, and the most epic superhero showdown ever is taking place on screen. Ant-Man is gigantic and punching space monsters in the face. Cap has Thor’s hammer. And then out of the dust emerges Scarlet Witch and … Continue reading 2020 The Year Without A Comic Con
Geeklings, Happy Labor Day! While the calendar says we still have a few weeks left of actual summer, Labor Day tends to say otherwise. It’s time for the kids to head back to school. The weather begins to shift. Football has returned. All surefire signs that the seasons are changing. I will still adhere to my very strick, no jeans until October rule but there’s … Continue reading Week In Geek- A Trip Back To Derry, Titans Return, & The Joker
Oh, these dog days of summer. While we still have a week left in August we are rapidly heading into fall. Pumpkin themed everything has already made itself known and the summer box office has all but closed down for the season. We’re now left to shift gears. From jeans to shorts. From iced tea to pumpkin spice. From baseball to football. This back half … Continue reading Did Breaking Bad Steal Disney’s Thunder?
When I think of Stan Lee it was always with this sense of immortality. Stan “The Man” Lee had kind of transcended the title of being a comicbook writer and was just as much a superhero as Spider-Man or the Hulk. He came across larger than life. A figure who would always be here. Seriously, what would a world without Stan Lee even look like?! Sadly, we … Continue reading The Immortal Stan Lee
Geeklings, I have to admit that last week I was kind of in a funk. I can’t really explain the ins and outs of it, but part of that funk was turning away from our 600th post. I just wasn’t in the right mindset to celebrate the achievement. I mean, 600 posts is something to be proud of and I spent the better half of … Continue reading Week In Geek- 600th Post, NYCC Week, We Are Venom (?), & Rick Grimes Farwell Tour
It’s been over a year since Batman removed the Comedian’s button from the walls of the Batcave. Over a year since I read Rebirth #1 in my apartment, my Fortress of Nerditude, and geeked out hard as the events of Rebirth unfolded across my eyeholes. I’ve said it a number of times before but Rebirth #1 might be the best single issue of a comic I’ve read in quite some time. … Continue reading Doomsday Clock #1 Review- The Most Important Comic Of 2017
Geeklings, how is everyone doing? I haven’t been around since Thursday when I dropped the latest episode of the I Am Geek Podcast, and I wanted to come back this weekend and do a write up on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 but I took the weekend to process the film instead. Sometimes I feel like I need time before jumping into a review and finally listening to the … Continue reading Week In Geek- More Stephen King Trailers, The Button Conclusion, & Blade Runner Sequel
Geeklings, what is going on? How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was pretty stellar. Saturday we scored our comic con tickets (Friday and Saturday for those who are interested in meeting up) which is a tremendous sigh of relief. Don’t get me wrong, the experience was stressful, as is buying comic con tickets every year, taking about forty minutes but was totally worth it. We’re going two days this … Continue reading Week In Geek- Guardians (!!!), Free Comic Book Day, and May 4th
