Kevin Smith is a nerd’s nerd. That’s been fairly well established after years of Star Wars and comic book references being smothered all over his movies. Still, as Smith launches his latest nerd-friendly TV endeavour, the talk show Geeking Out, he, like any other nerd, has dreams that are out of reach, even for someone with his reach and influence. So while Geeking Out seeks to bring nerd figureheads and luminaries to your home TV in a personable and honorific setting, Smith knows there are a few untouchable figures that we’d love to see, and that he would love to get.  (more…)

dresscode

When Cosplayer June Rivas was called into her boss’s office and told her recent work attire and hair style had been “unprofessional” she decided to respond using her favorite hobby, Cosplay. In the picture above on the left you can see what she wore on a typical day, a simple off white pants suit and head scarf, seems pretty much the usual office wear one would expect a co-worker to wear wouldn’t you say? What Rivas decided to do after that day is perfectly Nerdy. (more…)

This will only feed into the petty fight between fans of Marvel and the fans of DC, but it’s an interesting story about just how far the reach of San Diego Comic Con goes outside of Hall H. You may recall from our weekend Comic Con binge some degree of difference between the coverage of the two major panels, Warner Bros. and Marvel Studios; while Warners dumped everything online almost as it happened, Marvel only shared the new Doctor Strange trailer with the home audience. If the point of something like Comic Con is to attract attention, then measuring reaction on social media should be a good indicator if you were successful, and one studio was very successful indeed.

Hot Toys is the premier collectible toy company known for making hyper realistic figures, statues, and busts inspire from Hollywood’s biggest movies and franchises. In the age of the Hollywood Blockbuster, a movie isn’t a true pop culture smash unless Hot Toys makes some toys/collectibles from it.

Coming off their insane display of cool sh*t on display at San Diego Comic Con, Hot Toys (via Sideshow Collectibles) has officially released three Suicide Squad action figures featuring Harley Quinn, Deadshot, and The Joker(more…)

Matt Ryan stole the hearts of comic fans with his portrayal of John Constantine, from the show Constantine NBC aired in 2014. The series, which was based on the Hellblazer comics, saw John and his cohorts battling the evils of ‘the Rising Darkness’, protecting the innocent from the paranormal, occult, and that which goes bump in the night. While the show was well received by fans of the comics and of superhero shows, it was cancelled after one season due to not making the numbers NBC has come to expect from their shows; fans, however, were adamant that the character return as played by Matt Ryan. There were petitions, hashtag campaigns, and even Stephen Amell of Arrow made a push (resulting in Constantine guest starring on an episode of the green archer’s show). Now CW has picked up the rights to the show (along with Supergirl from CBS)—though if they will revive it remains to be seen. While we wait for more news on the hopeful revival of the show in some capacity, we have a nice adventure to fill in the gap: the new, animated version of Justice League Dark(more…)

guardians 2

A feat of storytelling, soundtrack, CGI and cinema in general, Guardians of the Galaxy is a great example of just how brilliantly the more obscure stories from comic books can translate onto the big screen. When it first came out, it quickly became Marvel‘s third highest grossing film at the box office, after only The Avengers and Iron Man 3. It had all of the heart and soul of the comic in a way that managed to appeal to both existing fans and new viewers without causing much friction between the two groups. (more…)
