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 so you don’t have to. If you haven’t already seen my blog update, I’ll be taking a break for the rest of the month after this post, but you can still catch me on Twitter. I’m hoping to get some time to sit down and actually plan out some better content as well as reconsider the format of this new post. So stay tuned in January for some new content. In terms of news highlights for this week: Way too many anime announcements this week, so check below so some of those; The internet has been going crazy about the announcements of Cowboy Bebop live action and Blade Runner anime; and Netflix has cancelled the Daredevil series after 3 seasons. Be sure to check out the videos and articles below, and as always have a great Sunday! I’ll see you all in 2019! Continue reading

Hi All!

Is it really almost December 1st already?! Time has just been moving way too fast, and the time has come again for me to take a break for the holidays. I’ll be offline from this blog the whole month of December to rest, spend time with family, and actually sit down and plan out some posts for next year. One more post will be going up by Friday and one more news round-up will be going up on Sunday, but after that I’m offline until the new year! 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

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. I took the whole week off from work for Thanksgiving, so I’m planning on trying to get more work done in the coming days and making sure some posts are scheduled for when I’m offline for the holidays. I’m also fooling around with some ideas on how to streamline these news round-up posts, so if you see some changes to the format in the next couple weeks, that’s why. If you have any ideas in that vein, be sure to let me know in the comments. As for news highlights for this week: I’ve added a special section on Stan Lee below to capture all the news and features being published after his death; Anime NYC happened this week, so there’s a whole ton of licensing announcements below; and quite a few anime films are coming to US theaters next year. Be sure to check out the videos and features below, and have a great rest of your Sunday! Continue reading
