Geek Themed Keychains

I’ve accumulated quite a few geek related keychains over the years.  I seem to have a weakness for buying them even though I’ve only used a few of these keychains on a regular basis.  Today we’re going to look at the ones I’ve managed to hang onto. Below are several DC Comics related keychains.  The […]

REVIEW: Soldier Zero #1 from Stan Lee and BOOM Studios

I picked up BOOM! Studios’ Soldier Zero #1 upon the recommendation of an acquaintance.   I wasn’t expecting much from the comic but found myself pleasantly surprised.  Apparently this book has broken all sales records for BOOM! Studios, making it their best-selling comic ever. The story was written by Paul Cornell (Doctor Who, Action Comics) with […]

I Miss the Ultraverse

I miss the Ultraverse.  It was a shining star that burned bright and was extinguished before it’s time. Back in early 1993, Malibu Comics launched a line of superhero titles under the Ultraverse imprint.  It was designed to be a shared universe where the characters could crossover and interact whenever the writers wanted. The early […]

Comic Book Themed Wrist Watches

I’ve owned a few comic book related watches over the years.  Most have moved on to the great temporal graveyard in the sky, however, I’ve hung on to a couple worth sharing. Below is a Fossil watch from 1989 featuring a fantastic drawing of the Joker.  I’m fairly confident the artist was Kyle Baker.  I […]

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 […]

My Geek Birthday – Doctor Who TARDIS Cake and Cookie Jar

I was totally overwhelmed and touched by all the birthday wishes I received last week!  My thanks to all of you that sent messages through Facebook, ultimately bringing the social networking goliath to its knees on Thursday.  I was on the road for work on my actual birthday, but I was able to catch dinner […]

As some of you may already know, Doctor Fate is one of my all-time favorite superheroes.  A buddy of mine, Justin Clarke, recently asked me to recommend some Doctor Fate stories worth reading.  I compiled the list and realized this would make a great post!  So here is my DOCTOR FATE ESSENTIAL READING LIST! If […]

Dragon*Con 2010 Recap – My Weekend of Insanity (lots of pics!)

Dragon*Con, my home away from home.  I believe this was my 10th appearance at this convention and it was definitely one of the better ones! Attended lots of panels, hung out with my friends, met some celebrities, drank far too much, took over 600 photos, and generally had a great time.  Sometime in the near […]

Hey gang – I survived DragonCon 2010!  Sorry posts have been light here this week.  I’m still absolutely exhausted from DragonCon and fighting off a cold. Normal posting should resume next week.  To keep you satisfied until then, I’ve uploaded over 600 pictures from my DragonCon 2010 experience!  I was fortunate enough to attend a […]
