This weeks comic releases bring us a return of Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque’s American Vampire. Being the first comic I’ve read all day, after moving, cooking, and watching some TV with the children; I was quite ready for for blood and guts to splatter across the page. And for $6.99, I expect to not be disappointed. Continue reading

After a week-long wait, new episodes of Defiance have once again started on SyFy. I hope you took the week to get caught up on the six episodes that have already aired. This is possibly the channel’s most ambitious endeavor with an amazingly detailed world, huge special effects, and an integrated MMORPG that affects and is affected by events in the show. We are glad it’s back. So was the wait worth it? Continue reading

Geeking CoolThings have been pretty hectic around here and postings have been sparse. I assure you though that this blog will not go the way of so many others, with posts tapering off to nothingness. Actually, quite the opposite is happening and the sparse posting has very good reasons. Here is a brief glimpse into what is going on behind the scenes at Geeking Cool. Continue reading

If Hannibal Lecter is the most prolific serial killer in the world created by Thomas Harris and recently brought to life on the small screen by Bryan Fuller on NBC, then Special Agent Will Graham is the most prolific profiler. Every week he is presented with strange cases, each one not more disturbing than the last, but uniquely disturbing in their own rights. From people being used to fertilize mushrooms and “transformed” into mock angels to being turned into musical instruments and, this week, totem poles. If there is one thing you can count on from this show, it is a continuous stream of disturbing. The perfect prime time show for horror fans the world over. Continue reading

It seems that for the relaunch of Batman through DC’s New 52, the plan was to put him through hell over and over and over again. His shadow has become a ladder and any that pass underneath it are made to suffer. Another Robin was killed (but honestly, by this point Bruce should know better than to put anyone in that costume). And now, yet another person suffers the consequences of knowing Gotham’s Dark Knight. What’s more, I warned him last month. Continue reading

Welcome back to the ongoing review of the twenty-one short stories found within the pages of Lincoln Crisler’s superhuman anthology, Corrupts Absolutely? It has been quite a ride so far, with explosions and fights and inner turmoil. The story I review today, “G-Child” by Malon Edwards, brings all of those elements together in one package. Edwards is a native of Chicago’s south side, living in Toronto and serves as a Grants Administrator for the Speculative Writer’s Foundation. Like much of his work, this one takes place in the near future of Chicago. Continue reading

Since the first episode of SyFy’s Defiance we knew there was something going on with a strange artifact that was found in the McCawley mines. We know that the town’s old mayor, Nicky Riordan, has an interest in finding it. And we know that it contains some unknown power. But it isn’t until last night’s episode, “Brothers in Arms”, that we have seen it used as the driving force behind any part of the plot. Even then, it was only used to drive a small subplot.

Coming this week to DVD and Blu-Ray is Beautiful Creatures, the film adaption of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s young adult novel by the same name. It falls into the realm of supernatural romance, not really my kind of thing, but I enjoy all movie types as long as they are good. However, films such as this have irked me since Twilight first came out for their complete and total lack of originality. Yet I am bound by duty to bring you a fair review of this film and give you you opinion: buy, rent, or pass. Continue reading

I took the day off from reading Corrupts Absolutely? Yesterday, what with reviews of Star Trek: Into Darkness and having to catch Thursday’s Hannibal on demand for review. But I’m back to it today. This story, “Hero” by Joe McKinney, puts me just past the half done mark. I went in imagining this story as being the cleanup hitter if the collection were a baseball team. Aside from being an author, McKinney has been a San Antonio patrol officer and a homicide detective. How well did writing all those reports serve him when writing “Hero”? Let’s find out. Continue reading

I went to sleep at about 5 am this morning. Two and a half hours later I woke up and drove the kids to school. Do you think I came back home and went right back to sleep? As smart as that would have been, I did not. Instead, I made a couple posts to Twitter, checked on Psyborg TV’s double feature, and then drove over to the theater. There, I shelled out $11.50 for a ticket and $11.25 for some nachos and a latte. Finding a seat in front of screen eight, I anxiously awaited for the projectionist (are they even called projectionists now) to roll the footage of Star Trek: Into Darkness 3D. Was it worth the $22.75 I dished out to the good folks at Regal Cinemas? Read on to find out. Continue reading
