Welcome to another installment of “Last Week in Geekdom” where I comb the internet for all the news you need to know so you don’t have to. This week’s been pretty busy for me so I’m sorry if my posts have been getting delayed, but I’m still working towards getting more reviews and articles out once I have a more solid schedule. As for highlights from this week: An anime festival in Daghestan was threatened with violence and forced to cancel; EC Comics are coming to the big screen; and tons of anime announcements are starting to trickle in. I know I probably missed some anime announcements, and I know I did not include the Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid among them as there still isn’t a reliable source to confirm the announcement. Be sure to check out the videos and articles below and, as always, have a great Sunday! Continue reading

Welcome back to another installment of Last Week in Geekdom where I comb the internet for all the news you need to know so you don’t have to. It looks like this season doesn’t have all that many romance animes that interest me, so there will be no first impressions post this time. Instead I’m going to try and focus on my manga and comics review backlog and hopefully catch up on a lot of the currently publishing series. As for news for this week: More digging has been done on the allegations against Vic Mignogna; the founder and CEO of Funimation has stepped down; and someone’s giving away a comic store in Chicago. As always, check out the videos and articles below. There’s some good ones this time. Have a great Sunday (especially to those of you trying to avoid all the Superbowl craziness like me)!

Anyways, highlights from last week include: sexual assault allegations have resurfaced against Vic Mignogna; Hayao and Goro Miyazaki are working on two new movies for Ghibli, and all the Hanna-Barbera comics may cease publication at DC indefinitely. As always, I encourage you to check out the articles and videos below and let me know if I missed something. Have a great Sunday! Continue reading

Welcome back to another installment of “Last Week in Geekdom” where I comb the internet for all the news you need to know so you don’t have to. My schedule is still a bit messed up due to some health problems and trying to give myself a bit more freetime. Reviews will be coming out at least once a week from now on, maybe more if I have the energy. Anyways, we have a bunch of news from the DC front below, an announcement that MyAnimeList has been acquired, and some manga creators have been nominated for the Eisner Comics Hall of Fame. All of this and more news down below. Be sure to check out the videos and articles I linked as well. And as always, have a great weekend! Continue reading

Welcome back to another installment of “Last Week in Geekdom” where I comb the internet for the top news stories you need to know. I’m keeping with the new style from last week and presenting four top news stories that were either the most talked about this week or news stories that I think are really interesting. In terms of my own schedule for the coming weeks, I’m slowing down to one post a week to give myself some more relaxing free time, so new posts will go up on Wednesdays. Anyways, in terms of highlighted stories this week: some new information has come out about the Fox-Disney merger that may mean the cancelling of some anticipated movies; some controversies popping up about Punisher; and I think the first noteworthy obituary announcements of 2019. Let me know if I’ve missed something and, as always, have a great Sunday! Continue reading

Welcome back to another installment in “Last Week in Geekdom” where I comb the internet for all the news you need to know so you don’t have to. Happy new year to all my loyal readers and new people that have somehow found me! I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things after being away from blogging entirely for a whole month. It was super relaxing and now I’m finding it hard to get back into it, so expect delays and a not-so-predictable schedule for a while. Anyways, I had been talking about trying out something new for these news round-ups last year, so I thought I’d test out the new Top Stories format. Below are four top stories for the anime and manga section and the comics section. I’m still keeping the anime and manga announcements sections, but I’ve been trying to find ways to streamline and make these a little more interesting. Let me know in the comments if you like this format or want me to go back to just the plain bullet points. As always, have a great Sunday! Continue reading

Welcome back to another installment of “Last Week in Geekdom” where I comb the internet for all the news you need to know. I hope all of my US readers had a great Thanksgiving and a great holiday weekend. I just got back from visiting my family yesterday, so the next manga review will be going up tonight. Anyways, I feel like there might not be that much pressing news items this week because of the holidays, but see below for some of the news I managed to pull out this week. Notably: there’s a lot of chatter around manga endings and beginnings this week, presumably because it’s getting close to the end of the year; A Silent Voice is coming back to theaters in the US; and Image Comics finds themselves in a trademark dispute. Be sure to check out the articles and videos below, and I hope you all have a great rest of your Sunday! Continue reading
