*sigh* … … … … *siiiiiiiiiigggggghhhhh* Oh, hello. Sorry, I’m just feeling a bit bummed. Why you ask? Well, we should be at the very start of con season right about now. Geeks everywhere should be putting the finishing touches on their cosplays, mapping out arenas, finalizing photo ops or signings, finding their most comfortable shoes, and most importantly, getting ready for the best weekend … Continue reading Funko Con Exclusives- A Timeline of Madness
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
Today should be the eve of San Diego Comic-Con which more or less equants itself to geek Christmas. Over the last few years, I have spent this weekend spending time with family and friends but also kind of ignoring them. I’m present and will throw in a casual chuckle or something to make it appear that I’m paying attention but in reality, I’m glued to … Continue reading None of Those Comic-Con Vibes
San Diego Comic-Con has always been a bucket list item for yours truly. Kind of like the Mecca of Geekdom for me. A great pilgrimage where I would travel across the country in an attempt to make it into the fabled Hall H so I can geek out with thousands of friends I’ve never met. Geeklings, this is the dream and I like to believe … Continue reading The Year We Comic-Con From Home
This whole quarantine thing has been a bit surreal, he said as quite the understatement. As we speak, I’ve just completed my second month working from home. My beard is full. My hair is long and unruly. I’ve fallen in love with headbands. And I’m more or less swearing off real pants going forward. Who needs them? There’s no question that quarantine has been quite … Continue reading Why The Community Table Read Should Leave You Cautiously Optimistic
I don’t think anyone could truly be blamed if they spent the majority of their time on social media falling deeper and deeper into a coronavirus like wormhole. Picture that part in Alice In Wonderland where Alice is falling down the hole but instead of it being dirt and mushrooms picture icky coronavirus like vibes falling past her while also sticking to her soul. Good … Continue reading Community- Six Seasons and Netflix
Most weeks we tend to get together on Wednesdays either here at I Am Geek, our local comic book shops (hiiiiiii Android’s Amazing Comics), Twitter, or basically any other place you can get together with friends and discuss the latest crop of comic books. I’ve often referred to New Comic Book Day as my favorite weekly holiday but that doesn’t necessarily mean that comic book related awesomeness … Continue reading Comic Book Round-Up- Catwoman’s Pregnant (?!), A Locke & Key Crossover (?!), & Dan Didio Gone (?!?!?!)
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?
“If Monday had a face, I’d punch” is a phrase that tends to be thrown around on, well, Mondays. No one wants the weekend to end and Monday often symbolizes this overwhelming defeat. The weekend is over and now I’ve got to work. For five straight days. Maybe six. Again. If Monday had a face, I’d punch it. And don’t get us wrong, we here … Continue reading Week In Geek- Disney Expo, Ready or Not, & Steve Carell Returns To TV
