7. A remake of Cannonball Run is in development

We Be Geeks 227: The Return of Julz

We Be Geeks 227: The Return of Julz

This week on We Be Geeks the gang is almost all here. Brett is MIA for these next couple of weeks, and we will definitely miss him. Do you like digital? We take on the case for “Going Digital with ComiXology”. We all love comics, but is there a place for digital in our lives? Turns out there is! With limited space it makes it hard to collect sometimes. Also traveling with comics is much easier when doing digital. There is much to love about both, and we all love our Local Comic shops. Jessica Chastain was cast in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, after months of rumors. We have our fingers crossed that it will be good. Netflix is adding a new series from Matt Groening. “Disenchantment: a fantasy story that takes place in a failing medieval kingdom.” It sounds pretty interesting to us and the voice cast is stellar. With all of our love from Groening’s other shows, we will be sure to check this gem out. New Superhero shows in 2017? We have the list, and discuss our mad love, or dislike for each of them. All this and more, but only if you tune in.

It is Meredith’s world, and we are just living in it.

It is Meredith’s world, and we are just living in it.

When we spoke with Meredith Finch on the We Be Geeks podcast, it was just before her new project for Image Comics called Rose came out. We are now two issues in. With issue 2 having released on May 17th. When we spoke to Meredith about the new project, one of the things she was most excited about was Rose being her own character, and the setting was the world that she had created. She had just come off a great run on Wonder Woman, and with the history that comes with such a historic character, she was excited to be able to stretch her legs on her own creation. Stretch her legs she has. It’s Meredith’s world, and we’re just living in it. Her co-conspirator on this venture is artist Ig Guara, whose art fits this fantasy story so well. One of my favorite aspects of his art is his facial expressions. He makes Rose look fierce, and feminine at the same time.
