Where The Heck Has Shag Been?!?!

As you read this, you’re probably thinking, “ONCE UPON A GEEK? I remember that old site. Hasn’t it been dead for months?”  That’s pretty much true, but I’m back! From 2008 through 2010, ONCE UPON A GEEK featured a new post every weekday.  Sure I missed a few days here and there, but for the […]

Precocious Princess: The Superheroine

My five year old daughter, we call her the Precocious Princess here, loves to dress up.  Absolutely loves it!  Whenever we’re in a store, she wants to try on all the costumes.  After swapping superhero in-store-costume stories with my buddies C.T. from Nerd Lunch and Terry, I was inspired.  When the Princess and I next […]

Because apparently I’m not busy enough already, I’ve started another blog!  B’WANA BEAST’S BLOG – A blog dedicated to DC Comics’ Jungle Master – B’wana Beast!

Disney Fireworks over Cinderella’s Castle

In December, my family and I visited the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.  We had a fantastic time and stayed to watch the fireworks.  We’d seen them from our hotel previously, but never from right in front of the castle.  Wow!  At the start of the fireworks, an actress dressed as Tinkerbell rode a […]

Power Pack Digests – Something for Everyone

Looking for some good clean superhero fun?  Then give the Power Pack digests a try! If you’re not familiar with Power Pack, they are a team of super-powered siblings ranging in age from 5 to 12.  They first appeared in 1984, but Marvel started a new series of adventures five years ago featuring Power Pack […]

Bronze Age Marvel Madness

I can’t explain it, but I’ve been infected with Bronze Age Marvel Madness! I’m loving old Marvel comics from the Bronze Age!  This is surprising because I’m predominantly a post-Crisis DC guy (or Tween-Crisis DC guy to be exact).  The Bronze Age is often defined as mainstream comics published from 1970 to 1985.  Growing up […]

Ultimate Geek Sunglasses Holder

Anyone have any unusual accessories on or within their car?  I’ve hung a pair of laboratory goggles from my rear view mirror for the past 20+ years.  It started off as a gag with a friend, but since has grown to become part of my vehicle’s personality.  They make a perfect holder for sunglasses and […]

This year on Halloween I’ll be giving out comic books in addition to candy!  Normally I give each trick-or-treater at least two pieces of candy.  On this October 31st each costumed visitor to our house will receive some candy plus one mini-comic – either Archie, Toy Story or Smurfs! Back in July, Diamond Comics Distributors […]

Let Your Geek Flag Fly

I picked up a new bumper sticker this week – LET YOUR GEEK FLAG FLY!  I love it! I bought the sticker at Lofty Pursuits.  I can’t seem to find it for sale on the internet, but if you go looking it was produced by “Duck and Cover”.  I’m still deciding whether to slap the […]
