Science Fiction Book Club rocks!

The Science Fiction Book Club (SFBC) totally rocks!  I’ve been a member for years.  Each time I complete my commitment, I rejoin to take advantage of their bargains. Book clubs have a reputation for being overpriced, but the SFBC has a generous introductory offer and frequent bargains that definitely save you money. I recently completed […]


New Doctor Who Classic Cybermen Action Figures

I just got some new Doctor Who Classic action figures!  This time out it was a set of four Cybermen that were just released.  Each Cyberman came with a “Collect and Build” piece to create a fifth figure, the classic Cyber Controller.  I took a picture to show them off, but it didn’t come out […]

Are You Ready to Pay $3.99 Per Monthly Comic?

In case you hadn’t noticed, the price of your monthly comics has been creeping up.  For the past few years, monthly comics from Marvel & DC have cost $2.99 each.  Rumors have been floating around about a price increase on the horizon.  Well, Marvel is starting to move up.  For example, both New Avengers and […]

Besides the Firestorm pint glass, Toon Tumblers also produces a ton of other Marvel and DC pint glasses.  All the glasses are designed in the spirit […]


Black Costume Spider-Man Plush Toy

This plush black costume Spider-Man resides in my home office. Over the years, I’ve collected lots of geek related odds-and-ends which somehow find their way into my home office.  I think this one is particularly cute, especially since I really liked the black costume Spider-Man era.  However, I’m always careful to keep an eye on […]


Irredeemable… the comic?!?!

Coming this April from BOOM! Studios, Mark Waid writes a new comic entitled, Irredeemable. Seriously?  I wasn’t consulted about this.  I’m not sure who should be more offended — me or Robert Kirkman. All kidding aside, this looks like an interesting read.  I know I’ll be getting it.  If nothing else but to check for […]


Mountain Dew… the lifeblood of geeks

I’m a Mountain Dew addict.  If you’re a geek, then it’s quite possible that you are too.  It just tastes so friggin’ good.  And the mega-jolt of caffeine is perfect for those late night gaming sessions, web surfing, comic book reading … or really just about anything.  I tried swearing off the stuff for a […]


Doctor Who Anime

FACT: I cringed when I first heard about this Doctor Who anime project. FACT: Paul “Otaking” Johnson wrote, drew, and animated this unofficial montage video. FACT: The video features […]
