Without further ado, The Irrepressible Gena… I’ve never actually understood my husband’s hobby. For years, he has been collecting superhero figurines and […]

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 […]

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!

REVIEW: Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes on DVD Vol. 1 & 2

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I sat down to watch The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes vol. 1 & 2 on DVD.  The Avengers are one of my all-time favorite superhero teams.  I have nearly 400 issues of Avengers comics, so I consider myself a reasonably dedicated fan.  Iron Man and Iron Man 2 […]

Awesome Find: Starman Trade Paperback

While strolling through a local comic shop this past weekend, I came across the very first Starman trade paperback!  I own the individual issues (#0 – 5), and I realize the beautiful yet expensive omnibuses are available, but this first trade is special to me. It was first collected in 1996, a time when trade […]

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 […]
