DOCTOR WHO – THE FORGOTTEN Within the past couple years, IDW has picked up the Doctor Who comic book license […]

REVIEW: Green Lantern First Flight DVD

I finally picked up the DC Universe animated original movie Green Lantern First Flight on DVD.  While the trailers I’d seen looked pretty good, I just wasn’t feeling passionate about watching the film.  My apathy is centered on the lead character, Hal Jordan.  While I really like everything surrounding the Green Lantern concept and universe, […]


John Hughes 1980s Tribute Video

Comic Book Store Employees Can Ruin the Experience

Y’know, the attitude of a comic book store employee can really impact the future profitability of the shop. I’m of the belief that going to the comic book store is a fairly unique experience.  It’s a pilgrimage us hardcore comic geeks make once a week or so.  Most of us have some sort of pull/hold/reserve […]


Calvin and Hobbes For Parents

As a parent, and a geek desperately clinging to his childhood, this image really speaks to me. I’ve been a huge fan of Calvin & Hobbes since the early days of its publication.  I’ve got my own inner-Calvin, so I really connected with the daily strip.  I was very wrapped up in the series back […]

Blue Devil #1 Original Thumbnails from Creator

We’ve got an incredibly rare opportunity today to show a never-before-published Blue Devil piece, and witness behind-the-scenes in the development of a comic book.  Gary Cohn, co-creator and co-writer of DC’s Blue Devil, recently unearthed his original sketched thumbnails for Blue Devil #1 (June 1984).  These were thumbnails he drew himself as they plotted the […]

We’ve got a special treat today… I’m pleased to present today’s ONCE UPON A GEEK Special Correspondent, Lore (the irredeemable brother)!  That’s right, my brother.  Not exactly my evil twin (as the name might suggest to you Next-Gen-savvy folks), but close enough.  Today’s post is an opportunity for Lore to introduce himself to you readers… […]


REVIEW: Race to Witch Mountain DVD/Blu-ray

I was expecting a basic kid’s movie when I sat down to watch the DVD/Blu-ray of Race to Witch Mountain.  I’ve got two children myself and I’ve sat through a BUNCH of sub-par kid’s movies before.  The original Witch Mountain films still haunt my memory as pleasant childhood viewing, but I wasn’t expecting much from […]
