Do you love monsters?

Do you love monsters?
Is there anything better than monsters? I mean not just scary monsters, either. Aliens and Hellraiser are great and all, but I love monsters of all types. I love monsters in Adventure Time as much as I love them in Lord of the Rings. Monsters have penetrated every corner of entertainment, and they are the perfect literary device to talk about everything from racism to the dangers of nuclear war and to do it in a way that isn't preachy or heavy-handed. The subtle genius of Godzilla is that it got me thinking and talking about nuclear war, even when I was too young to understand what nuclear war even meant. Studying monsters in literature and movies is also a great way to find out what people worried about throughout the ages. Take Aliens . You might consider Aliens one of the greatest horror sci-fi movies of all time, but...

"Justice League Action" Delivers Hard on the Action

"Justice League Action" Delivers Hard on the Action
JLA1
DC Comic's new animated series 'Justice League Action' premiered in the U.S. this Friday, December 16th on Cartoon Network. This is the newest successor to the Justice League TV franchise, the last one being 2006's 'Justice League Unlimited'. The first episode, an hour long special, featured a plethora of DC heroes and villains, including, Superman, Wonder Woman, Constantine, Swamp Thing, Plastic Man, Martian Man Hunter, Black Adam, The Parasite, Shazam (voiced by Sean Astin) and Batman, voiced by the one and only Kevin Conroy. That's right, Kevin Conroy the man who voiced Batman in 'Batman: The Animated Series', and the 'Batman: Arkham' series has returned to reprise his iconic role as the Dark Knight himself. This review won't go into specifics about the episode as to best avoid spoilers, just my overall impression of the show.

Geek Genie caught up with author Jason Powell on the release of his book "The Best There is at What He does - Examining Chris Claremont's X-Men" released by Sequart.   GG: Hi Jason. Congratulations on the release of your book! What made you want to write a book specifically about the Claremont run in X-Men? JP: Well I guess that my love of the X-Men is really tied to that particular run by Chris Claremont. I was lucky enough to be given a collection of comic books from my Uncle which had a good mix of Marvel comics (although he refused to give up his Spidey books!). I discovered the X-Men at the same time that the X-Men cartoon series was also taking off and so I really wanted to find out more about these chracters.   GG: Claremont's run is legendary for its soap opera and length of...

Don Heck - A Tribute

Don Heck - A Tribute
7df3865eea5deb27338215245ccddfb9
I grew up in a small town, and while not quite as small as the fictional “Mayberry” of Andy Griffith fame… one of the main hangouts of my dad and his pals was the Barber Shop. It was called “Harry’s”, and if not for a small wicker basket tucked into a corner, it would have been the last place in the world I’d have liked to hang out. Now don’t get me wrong, my father and his cronies did have some funny stories to tell about glory days, but you can only get a kick out of them so many times before you’re relegated to a polite smile. Though that corner was polluted with age old hair clippings never swept up… it was my salvation. The wicker basket had all sorts of literature inside. Time, Look, Life, years old local papers, and the like. Nothing for a curious little boy...
