Nerd Lunch Crashed Our Geek Lunch!

At some point in college, it’s expected you’ll crash at least one stranger’s kegger.  However, as an adult crashing a fellow geek’s lunch is a whole other matter!

The Irredeemable Ant-Man is Irredeemable Once Again

Marvel just finished a fun three-issue mini-series entitled, Ant-Man & Wasp.  It was written and penciled by Tim Seeley with inks by Victor Olazaba.  The mini-series has action, humor, and some cool science.  I’m a big fan of the All-New Ant-Man as well as Hank Pym.  If you like either of these characters, I highly […]
