We Be Geeks 228: If There Is Enough Money Involved

This week, the guys are excited to have their old friend Julz back on the podcast.  However, Brett is once again MIA, causing Mike and Derrick to once again wonder if Brett and Julz are, in fact, the same person.  They have not been shown otherwise yet……

3. Karl Urban could star in the upcoming Dredd TV series after all
 
4. Agents of SHIELD is coming back on the air sooner than expected, but why?
 
5. Disney has announced that they are pulling their properties off of Netflix for a very special reason
 
6. The rumors about the cancellation of the Fantastic Four comic series are actually true?
 
7. A remake of Cannonball Run is in development 

Marvelette Missives – The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

At Comic-Con International in July, it was announced that the fourth (and final) volume of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen had been completed, though no release date has been set. Written by Alan Moore, with art by Kevin O’Neill, the series began in 1999 as a sort of Victorian Justice League, but with a pronounced literary bent. There are many references (and inside jokes) to Victorian fiction, as well as a lot of steampunk elements.  More

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.

Marvelette Missives – Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye

The first thing to catch your attention about Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye is, obviously, the title. And yes, it’s a factual statement about the main character. But if you pick up the comic you’ll soon find out there’s a lot more to it than an enhanced human character.  More

We Be Geeks 225: NO Joe, It’s The Tick
