Neil The Geek Father’s Weekly #1 Picks for 16th August 2017

Neil The Geek Father’s Weekly #1 Picks for 16th August 2017

A week that included decorating, a family get-together and generally being a Dad, hit my comic reading hard last week. Having only read two single issues I feel I’ve disowned my love of sequential art. Therefore I have set myself a challenge to complete two trades prior to next weeks picks. Will I complete this challenge? Stay...

Single comics have taken a step back for me over the past week. Since taking delivery of The Crow by James O’Barr, that has been the majority of my reading. Thanks to Mike The Mutant for the recommendation from a previous Your Mom’s Basement episode. Having only ever watched the film it’s great to get further insight...

Wednesday, I think we all know by now what that means. Lovely, lovely NEW COMICS! Last Week’s Picks From last week’s picks, I was only able to read Time & Vine but what a choice that was. I mentioned it in my post but I have been reading an abundance of horror, sci-fi comics and needed something...

Wednesday, the day of fresh smelling comics. A sweet smelling essence I adore but for me today sees more digital smelling comics. Yes, my pull list of physical comics has dropped considerably. I am only pulling 4 issues that are physical, all the rest are digital. This is solely down to a storage issue, which...

Movie Review: Okja

Movie Review: Okja

Back in late 2015, Bong Joon-ho announced that his next feature film would feature a South Korean female lead, with a supporting cast of English-speaking actors. This had me excited. It was then announced this feature had been picked up by Netflix, with a budget of $50 million. This had me equally excited. Let’s get that...

Wednesday already! Either I’ve had an incredibly quick week or I have travelled into a not too distant future. I’ll go with the latter. Last Week’s picks recap So last week’s picks certainly brought out some interesting debate in the comic community. Zdarsky’s Spectacular Spider-Man wasn’t for everyone but it was certainly for me. Back...

Neil The Geek Father’s Weekly #1 Picks for June 21st 2017

Six months into this year and we’ve already seen some fantastic new #1’s. Only one problem I have is the effect on my bank balance. Luckily I’ve been able to cull my pull list down to only 30 titles but each month that goes up one or two titles. Some of you may think that’s a tiny...
