Comic Issues #161 – The Battle For Your Love

We’re now in the second week of the Throne of Geekdom, where the icons of TV, movies, animation, comics, and games are fighting it out for your love. Remember, it’s not who would win in a fight (because, really, then Superman wins everything.) It’s a battle to see who you love the best.

So on this week’s podcast the crew talks about who’s likely to take it all the way to the Throne, and who’s going to get beaten into oblivion in the first week. Along the way we also talk about Microsoft possibly ditching Xbox, Marvel rewarding their digital buyers, and how 2018 is a liiiiittle long to wait for a new Avatar movie (the blue monkey-cat-people one, not the Airbenders.)

Comic Issues #160 – Guardians of the Everything Else

Like we said last week, everybody’s busy. But somehow we cram in a few things when we’re not at our jobs. Sometimes it’s freelance work, sometimes it’s getting a new place, sometimes it’s watching COMPLETELY AWESOME TRAILERS. And sometimes it’s dealing with the breeding habits of Pokémon. You heard me: Pokémon. Sex.

Join our heroes and heroine as we talk about a completely random assortment of things that fill our days, including (and not limited to) cat toys, romance novels, steampunk atriums, Stan Lee, Guardians of the Galaxy, and that time of year when a young Pokémon’s fancy turns to thoughts of love and that cute little girl Pokémon over there…

Review: The Blood Guard

Review: The Blood Guard

The Blood Guard by Carter Roy wasn’t anything like what I’d expected.

The main character Ronan may be a teenager who’s stumbled across a world of swords and sorcery and automatic weapons, but this is not one of those stories where he turns out to be some kind of “chosen one” or demigod. Not even close.

He’s accidentally found the Blood Guard, a league of (almost) indestructible soldiers who could kill you with a cafeteria tray as easily as a knife. They defend the fate of the world from darkness, but they’re not chosen ones either. Not really anyway.

The chosen ones are thirty-six people scattered across the planet, and they have no idea what they are. They’re ordinary, usually uninteresting, and they live their normal little lives without ever knowing that their existence somehow makes the world a better place.

The bad guys don’t care about any of that, of course. They have their reasons for wanting to slaughter every one of them, and that’s why the Blood Guard exists.
