If George R.R. Martin has impressed anything on me with the way he freely abuses his reader’s emotions, it’s that if it doesn’t happen on the page (or on screen) then it didn’t happen. Just because you’re told a character has died or are left for dead or any type of death is alluded to, it means zero until you see that character dead for … Continue reading Stranger Things- What If Doctor Brenner Is Alive?
Geeklings, a very Happy New Comic Book Day to you all! What I love the most about New Comic Book Day is how consistent it is. Fifty-two times a year we get to celebrate the best weekly holiday possible and it hardly ever takes time off. New Comic Book Day is always there for us. Sure, holidays might lead to a lighter book load, but … Continue reading Pull List- All the Thors, Deadly Class Lives, & A Stranger Things Prequel
Outside of the Mind Flayer hovering over Hawkins School in the Upside Down, it’s safe to say that season two of Stranger Things ended on a pretty happy note. The Gate to the Upside Down was closed (or was it?!) through some serious power flexing from Eleven. The kids got to finally enjoy the Snow Ball dance. Will is rid of the Mind Flayer possessing … Continue reading Stranger Things- Did Nancy & Jonathan Doom Hawkins?
Today had already been a pretty solid day. Marvel announced that JJ Abrams would be writing a Spider-Man mini-series with his son this September. Image announced that Matt Fraction (Hawkeye, Sex Criminals) had signed an exclusive original graphic novel deal with them. People have been speculating what the perfect Marvel character would be for Keanu Reeves to portray. All and all it had been a … Continue reading Stranger Things Trailer Breakdown- This Is A Code Red
As far as happy endings go, Stranger Things season two really did its best to give these characters something hopeful. Will Byers, after being tortured/possessed by the Upside Down for two seasons, tries to return to some sort of normalcy. Eleven is now the adopted daughter of Hopper, finally attends the Snow Ball with Mike, and has successfully closed the Gate between Hawkins and the Upside Down. … Continue reading Stranger Things- Is the Upside Down Really Gone?
Dear Netflix, This isn’t the first time we’ve spoken. In fact, I like to believe that we’ve been in something of a ten-year relationship together. Time gets kind of hazy when you’re having all the fun but I remember the days of getting two discs at a time and trying to stream you through my Nintendo Wii. We go way back and there’s not much … Continue reading Dear Netflix…
Last week Netflix finally graced us with the release of the long-awaited Stranger Things season three trailer. It couldn’t have come at a better time as the world needed a reminding that this show still existed. That’s the problem with these long layoffs between seasons. In a pop culture scene that has such a short attention span, thanks binge-watching, it’s a “what have you done … Continue reading Does Someone Need To Die In Stranger Things?
It’s funny, sometimes I think I have like a sixth sense. Not in the case where I can see dead people we all know that I am not mentally strong enough to handle that kind of power. Like at all. First dead person I see I’m freaking out and bleaching my eyes. I don’t want that kind of gift thank you very much. No, I’m … Continue reading Stranger Things Season 3 Trailer- Welcome Back To Hawkins
Geeklings, I’m sure you thought I might have forgotten about you but come on, it’s Monday. How could I forget about my Geeklings on a Monday?! The long and the short of it is I’ve had a pretty crazy day that is capping off a pretty incredible weekend. Yours truly and the Adorable Creature got engaged on Saturday and it has been quite the whirlwind of … Continue reading Week In Geek- So Many Spider-Men, Elseworlds Continues, & Monsters
Geeklings, I like to believe that I stay pretty “up” on pop culture related news. I’m constantly on the interwebs reading articles, Tweets, or Instagrams getting all the scoops on things that have my interest, and after three years here at I Am Geek you should know that’s a pretty big list. So you can imagine my surprise when I hopped on the Twitter for a … Continue reading Emmy Nominations Were This Week… & I Had No Clue
