Superman is a Dick

Just in case you’re that one geek in the world that hasn’t seen the “Superman is a Dick” website, here are a couple of my personal favorite covers.  These are actual comic book covers from the old days.  They demonstrate what a great guy Superman really is! You can see all of them at the […]


Premio Dardo Award!

First off, sorry I didn’t get to post anything on Thursday.  Real life got in the way.  So to make it up, I’ll give you a double-shot today. Second, ONCE UPON A GEEK has recently been awarded the prestigious PREMIO DARDO award by two different bloggers!  I humbly and graciously accept this honor.  I’d like to […]


A Geek’s Wife Reviews ‘Inkheart’

We’ve got a very special treat today… our first guest blogger!  I’m pleased to present today’s ONCE UPON A GEEK Special Correspondent, my wife, The Irrepressible Gena!  Just a little background for you, my wife is not a geek.  She’s a wonderful (and gorgeous) normal person.  So I thought her perspective would be interesting to […]


Podcast Appearances

Just a heads-up… I appeared in a couple recent episodes of the Views from the Longbox podcast. Views from the Longbox Episode 66 was the 2008 Christmas Spectacular! My apologies to Michael as I should have mentioned this episode long before now.  It was a blast to record the Christmas episode of Views from the […]


Secret Invasion: Requiem

Sorry if this is a spoiler for you, but the Wasp is dead.  I’m really bummed about this.  My thanks to Marvel for publishing “Secret Invasion: Requiem” to celebrate Janet Van Dyne’s life. Its just a shame that such a cool character is gone.  In case you missed her death, I’ve reprinted the relevant pages […]


Britney Spears ‘Womanizer’ Parody for Geeks!

Fun video about people like us. 


Doctor Who Classic Action Figures… MINE, MINE, MINE!

You may recall back in September I was anxiously awaiting my Doctor Who Classic action figures from Character Options.   These are new Doctor Who action figures based upon stories from the original series (years ranging from 1963-1989).  My figures finally arrived just before Thanksgiving, but I haven’t had a chance to post them until now. […]


Recently Acquired Comic Book T-Shirts

I got a couple new comic book t-shirts recently.  My local comic book shop (Cosmic Cat Comics, Games & Anime) had a New Years Day sale – all t-shirts only $6.  So I couldn’t resist these two. Here is an inspiring Aquaman image by the fantastic Alex Ross. Here is a bold shirt based on […]


New Guns N’ Roses Album on Vinyl. Seriously?!?

So I’m walking along in Best Buy the other day and I come across a display rack for the just released (but criminally delayed) Guns N’ Roses album “Chinese Democracy”.  Back in the day I was a HUGE Guns N’ Roses fan.  Not just your typical, “I love Sweet Child O’ Mine” fan.  I knew […]


Star Wars: Retold (by someone who hasn’t seen it)

Here is a video that is making its way around the inter-webs –  Star Wars: Retold (by someone who hasn’t seen it).   Here is the premise: Everyone has at least one friend who has seen parts of the Star Wars original trilogy but can’t quite tell you every plot point in order. Joe Nicolosi recorded […]
