DC Entertainment Pays Tribute To Stan Lee

As pop-culture fans across the world digested the news of Stan Lee's passing, DC Comics paid there own tribute to "The Man".   Given  all  his achievements in comic books, entertainment and pop culture, Stan Lee’s nickname, “The Man,” was both well earned and well deserved. From his time as a teenage assistant at then Timely Comics, through his collaborations with fellow icons like Jack Kirby ,  Steve  Ditko , John Romita Sr. and John  Buscema , plus his  tireless promotion of comic books to a mainstream audience , Lee was  in no small part  responsible for raising the profile of comic books  to make  them accessible to everyone.   “Without  Stan Lee’s  fertile and creative mind , endless energy and work ethic, comic books would have been completely different from what  we know  and enjoy  today,” said DC Publisher Dan DiDio.  “He helped to create worlds that were both...

Stan Lee 1922 - 2018

0010fbb2 500
As news of Stan Lee's passing reverberates around the world, Geek Genie pays tribute to "The Man". Although most of us knew this day was coming, it was still hard to take. At 95 years of age, Stanley Martin Lieber, had passed. He had lived his best life. In recent months, the signs were there that Stan may not be of this mortal plane for much longer. After his beloved wife Joan passed away in 2017 also at the age of 95, his health slowly deteriorated. Stan Lee's place in comic book and indeed pop-culture history is already assured. He was instrumental in turning a fledgling Marvel Comics into a powerhouse which shunted to one side the old established order represented by DC Comics. Lee's penchant for hyperbole saw him add the strapline "The World's Greatest Comic Magazine" to the Fantastic Four comic...after only two issues! But it was precisely...

The Greatest Comic Book Covers #3

Amazing Spider Man Vol 1 300 2
In the third installment of our ongoing series, our spotlight falls on Marvel's flagship character Spider-Man and how a certain Canadian artist reinvented everyones favourite arachnid for a whole new generation. In 1987 an up and coming Canadian artist took over the artistic reigns on Marvel Comics' Amazing Spider-Man title. Neither the character, nor the wider comic book industry, would ever be the same again.  Todd McFarlane was an overnight sensation on Amazing Spider-Man . Ever since co-creator Steve Ditko left the book way back in the 1966 dated issue Amazing Spider-Man #39, the web spinner was fixed in a Marvel "house style" best depicted by John Romita Senior and Ross Andru. An acclaimed run by Ron Frenz took the wall crawler back to his Ditko days until McFarlane joined the book as its regular artist with issue #298. McFarlane really put the spider into Spider-Man. Bigger bug eyes and...

Norm Breyfogle: 1960 - 2018

9EF4551B 529F 48C8 BF1E 9502625AFE97
It was Monday 24 September when news started to trickle through comics fandom, that one of its brightest and best had passed this mortal plane. Norm Breyfogle had died at the tragically young age of 58.     If you grew up reading comics in the 1980’s, then Norm Breyfogle  was Batman. His art style perfectly captured the mystery and suspense of the Dark Knight, whilst giving life to his flowing cape and to Gotham City itself.  His now legendary run on the character spanned 6 years across Detective Comics , Batman and Batman: Shadow Of The Bat as well as numerous one shots. Breyfogle, along with long time Batman collaborator Alan Grant, oversaw many key landmarks in the history of the Batman mythos. New characters like the Ventriloquist , the  Ratcatcher , Jeremiah Arkham and Mr Zsasz  were introduced which added to the Caped Crusaders rich history. None more so, than the introduction of Timothy...

Venom To Hit Screens Amid Spider-Man Rumours

Amazing Spider Man Vol 1 300
Venom hits theatres this week and rumours are abound that a certain web slinger may eventually cross paths with the anti-hero symbiote. Sony may have loaned out it's hottest property to the Marvel Cinematic Universe when Spider-Man appeared in Civil War and then Homecoming , but it still has a significant number of Spider-Man related characters in its film stable. One of those is Venom, a symbiote infected Eddie Brock who has wreaked havoc in the Spiderverse ever since his introduction in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man #300 way back in 1988. Venom the movie will hit cinema screens this week and already the fan gossip is about Spider-Man and whether or not our friendly neighbourhood web-head will make an appearance or even be referenced.

SPIDER-MAN HITS PS4

spider man ps4 game
Spider-Man has officially hit the shelves and PS4 fans can't get enough. Initial reviews are almost unanimously positive and it's already the fastest selling game of 2018 in the UK. The graphics and gameplay have many raving that this latest iteration of the Web Slinger is on a par, or even better, than the Batman Arkham Knight series of games.  That's maybe a little too early to call, but Geek Genie will have a review out shortly with a complete low down on what's hot and what's not on this amazing Spider-Man game!

Steve Ditko 1927 - 2018

DITKO1
Legendary comic book creator and artist passes at the age of 90. Steve Ditko, famed artist and comic book creator, has died at the age of 90. A celebrated artist and a pillar of the groundbreaking Marvel Age of Comics of the early 1960's, Ditko was credited with numerous creations and co-creations, most famously Spider-Man . His unique style is credited with pushing the boundaries of comic book art and was perfectly in tune with the psychedelic 60's.  The comic book industry was quick to pay tribute to Ditko. "Steve Ditko was true to his own ideals. He saw things his own way, and he gave us ways of seeing that were unique. Often copied. Never equalled. I know I'm a different person because he was in the world." Neil Gaiman "Spider-Man. Dr. Strange. The Question. The Creeper. Shade the Changing Man. Hawk & Dove. He worked with @Marvel AND...

The Greatest Comic Book Covers #2 - Detective Comics #27

DetectiveComics27Panel
The Dark Knight Detective has cast a vigilant shadow over the comic book world for over 70 years now! Geek Genie continues its ongoing series with #2 and a look at the first appearance of The Batman in Detective Comics #27!   With those immortal words, The Batman was born. And he's been striking fear into the hearts of criminals ever since. Fresh off the success of Action Comics #1, National Allied Publications (later known as DC Comics) delivered yet another iconic character. Bill Finger, assisted by Bob Kane, introduced the story of millionaire Bruce Wayne and his obsessive quest for justice in the guise of his Bat-alter ego.                        As Action Comics #1 had done previously, The Batman leapt off the pages of Detective Comics #27. But this time, instead of a brightly coloured Superman performing miraculous feats of...

Interview with INFIDEL Creators Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell

Infidel2
March 2018 sees the release of the hugely anticipated horror story INFIDEL published by Image Comics. We caught up with creators Pornsak Pichetshote and Aaron Campbell to discuss love, race, Islamophobia and things that go bump in the night! GG: Before we talk about your latest project, can you tell us about your backgrounds? How did you guys break into comic books? Pornsak: I pretty much fell ass-backwards into comics. At the time, I was a writer / filmmaker freelancing on NYC indy film sets with no intention of working a 9-to-5 when I heard about an opening at Vertigo Comics, working as Karen Berger’s assistant editor. I only took the interview so I could say I met Karen, since I was such a big fan of hers and Vertigo. I honestly wasn’t really interested in the job. I just wanted to keep freelancing on film sets and eventually become a...

Get ready for aliens, action and football!    GG : For those who didn’t pick up the first series, can you tell our audience a bit about Rok of the Reds?

The Greatest Comic Book Covers #1 - Action Comics #1

ActionComicsCar
Geek Genie kicks off its new regular series looking at the Greatest Comic Book Covers with the one that started it all...Action Comics #1!.   It's an iconic image for an iconic figure. Superman crashed through the front cover of Action Comics #1 in June 1938 and forever changed the comic book landscape. It ushered in the age of the superhero and laid the foundations of a pop-culture war between DC Comics and eventual rival Marvel Comics .  Joe Schuster's iconic cover captured the sense of wonder, awe and terror as a yet unknown Superman delivers a fantastic display of power. The sheer rawness of the cover, with no words or text other than the cover title, added to its power. Even the title, Action Comics , leaped from the page in a new, bold and exciting style that has now become synonomous with the character.        ...
