The Golden Age: An Introduction

Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster brought the superhero comic into the mainstream when they debuted Superman's story in 1938 with Action Comics #1. In fact, they launched what would become the Golden Age of superhero comics, but what does that mean exactly?


The Cape Gauntlet (Trailer)

Golden. Silver. Bronze. Modern. All of these are eras in comic book history that had their own stories to tell and over the course of the last 80 years, there have been hundreds of thousands of issues published between the main two publishing companies - Marvel Comics and DC Comics - alone. They have pushed what we know about characters beloved for decades and, at times, have published storylines that have had dramatic and long-lasting effects on their universes. Sadly, we’re not...


Disney/Fox Merger Complete

It only took $72 billion dollars to bring the X-Men and Fantastic Four rights to Disney. So what’s next and what could the impact be on Disney’s new intellectual properties? At the end of 2017, a battle began for the acquisition of rights to many of 21st Century Fox’s assets. The ones we’re immediately interested in here at GEEK THIS were, of course, those surrounding the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and other Marvel intellectual property. For most of us, this was one of those things that seemed...

Child’s Play (1988)

Chucky the Doll terrified me on multiple levels as a kid, so it took a lot of psyching myself up in order to watch Child’s Play. I have to say that I’m very glad I did, because I overcame my fear and laughed at myself in the process. Also, in this episode, I share the story that really spawned the fear of the demon doll! For those of you who haven’t seen My Buddy or Chucky compared directly, this is the horror I had to deal with as a kid. EPISODE LINKS Child’s Play Trailer My Buddy TV Spot...
