Batman vs Doctor Who

Over at THE HURTING blog, Tim O’Neil did a brilliant entry comparing Batman and Doctor Who.  He compares them in categories such as: preparation, arch-enemies, physical combat, mental aptitude, assistants, transportation, and the ladies.  Guess who comes out on top. It’s a fun post!  Check it out by clicking here. My thanks to Michael Bailey […]


Sherlock Holmes Trailer and 221B Baker Street Game

The trailer for the new Robert Downey Jr Sherlock Holmes film has been released. It’s definitely a different take on the legend. There is much more humor than one would normally associate with Sherlock Holmes, but I’m sure it will be good. More importantly, this trailer has reminded me of one of my favorite board […]


REVIEW: New Mutants #1

New Mutants #1 from Marvel Comics was released back on May 6.  It took me a while to get to this one as I’m behind in my reading, but it was definitely worth the wait. For me, this comic felt like Homecoming.  All my favorite New Mutants were there, but they had grown up. A […]


Kids Read Comics! June 12-13 in Chelsea, Michigan

Kids Read Comics! A very true statement, however, not as many kids are reading comics today as were when we grew up.  Ask yourself, do you encourage kids in your life (your children, nephews, nieces, friend’s kids, neighbors, etc) to read comics?  If the answer is no, then you may want to start thinking about […]


Jim Dale to Read Winnie the Pooh Sequel

Today’s post is in honor of Memorial Day because SGhoul swears that Jim Dale is dead. In case you hadn’t heard, the Trustees of the Pooh Properties have finally authorized a sequel to A.A. Milne’s classic, The House at Pooh Corner, more than 80 years after its publication.  While I appreciate the significance of this, […]


Once Upon a Geek Status Update

Just a quick note to the faithful readers of ONCE UPON A GEEK.  I apologize for the sporadic posts the last few weeks.  My free time has been consumed recently by my job.  We’re short staffed and training new folks where I work, so I’ve been putting in lots of extra hours.  The internet outage […]


“V” Remake – First Video Footage

Long time readers of ONCE UPON A GEEK may remember that I’m a big fan of the 1980s phenom “V” (click here for other “V” related posts).  On Tuesday ABC released two clips from their upcoming “V” reimagining. ABC’s remake of the 1980s miniseries “V” currently has been ordered for 13 episodes.  However it could […]


Kid Trek: Star Trek Movie Review

Here is another installment of KID TREK!  “Kid Trek” features reviews of classic or recent Star Trek adventures from the perspective of a child. These short audio interviews are conducted by me with my nine-year old step-son. This past weekend I took my step-son to see “Star Trek” the movie. Even though it was rated […]


Marvel/DC JLA/Avengers Artwork by George Perez

Hey gang!  The internet at my house has been out since a bad storm on Sunday.  No internet = no posts.  Sorry for the interruption in service.  I’m doing this during my lunch hour at work. To tide you over until things return to normal, enjoy this George Perez drawing from his JLA/Avengers work.  This […]


Supergirl Party on the Horizon

My tremendously awesome wife recently picked up these party paper goods.  I foresee a Supergirl-themed party in my daughters near future.
