Panel of the Week – Bananas, Bullets, and (Panda) Bears

Every Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, pandas were sad. This week, they took a level in badass.

Pandas are a strange and mysterious creature. For years, researchers believed that they weren’t actually bears. They have terrible taste in food, they hate having sex, and they’ll probably drive themselves into extinction.

They’re pretty great in comic books, though.

From pandas to puns, this is Panel of the Week! [Read more…]

Panel of the Week – Planes, Trains, and Freakishly Large Kaiju

Every Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, was all about science. This week, Kaiju have been eating their Wheaties.

There are certain things that will always get me to the comic shop. Batman. Grant Morrison. James Stokoe drawing Godzilla.

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 32] : GTJC@SDCC 2015

comiccon

Gordy made the journey to the San Diego Comic-Con this year and has a couple of things to say about it. Justin spent most of the weekend in a literal closet, but that seemed pretty cool too, so they also talk about that. Wanna know if Gordy found someone wearing his Beast hat at the con? How many cigarettes did he smoke with the drunk blue guy? Was he under surveillance by SCOOPS the entire time?! Likely. Was he under the surveillance of Jesus Christ as well?! Most assuredly.

PLUS! Guinan isn’t who we thought she was, hologram cowboy games, Gordy nearly gets impractically joked upon, the Cross-Fit/Hawkman experience, and hot tips for sneaking into conventions. Stay tuned at the end of the episode for Gordy’s random guy interview and clips from the Grant Morrison Multiversity panel Q&A session!

DOUBLE PLUS! HUGE thanks to Jonathan Hennessey for hooking Gordy up with the con pass. Be sure to check out his comic book epic Epochalypse, now out in trade form on Amazon, Comixology, and/or your local comic book store!

Panel of the Week – Science, Science, and More Science – GeekParty

Every Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, we had magic. This week, we’ve got science.

We had a busy week of podcasting, but we can always make time for comics.

From to pickpockets to poodle punting, this is Panel of the Week! [Read more…]

Panel of the Week – Hondas, Hall Passes, and Hawkman

Every Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, we advocated for mustaches. This week, we’re speaking out on behalf of ninjas.

While some people like to spend the Fourth of July setting off fireworks, we here at GeekParty prefer to sit down with some comic books. Superheroes will always be the best way to celebrate Independence Day.

From senior citizens to giant diaper babies, this is Panel of the Week!

Panel of the Week – Murder, Mustaches, and Mutants

Panel-DaredevilHeaderEvery Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, Martians piloted airplans. This week, ants are piloting sugar cubes.

Marvel announced their post Secret Wars line-up, and it’s kind of overwhelming. I’m not opposed to changes, but a new Hulk? A new Star-Lord? It’s a little too much at once. I mean, I’m still adjusting to the new Batman.

Still, as long as I can keep buying comics drawn by the likes of Chris Burnham and Chris Samnee, I think I can deal.

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 30] : Anaprez Rickwalker

prez

We’re Eagle Free in ’73 this week as the boys talk about the President Teen in 2015. What do we mean? It’s difficult to say. After a look back at Prez and its definitive take on Dracula, we look to the future to see if this new relaunch holds up. So far, without Dracula, the answer is a tentative “no sir.” Then, after creating a Smokey the Bear for a new generation, we crawl into the muck of Marvel and DC’s big time event books, Convergence and Secret Wars (not to be confused with Divergent or the Iraq war).

Prez Dracula Watch – Month 1 – No Sightings.

PLUS! Pod challenges, New Pompei, Doom as your God, and our plans to make sure Justin can ask Jim Lee about Zealot again some day, even if it means Gordy’s imprisonment.

Panel of the Week – Wolverines, Hashtags, and Martians

Every Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, everyone compared origin stories. This week, frogs are referencing Star Trek. 

It’s a light week of panels, but quality is always better than quantity.

From to Batcows to Forensic Frogs, this is Panel of the Week!

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 29] : Dairy to be Nipotent w/ Kuen Tang

witchblade

We start things off this week with an impromptu discussion about a weirdo who slobbers on iced cream for a living, and that quickly spirals into an exploration of his comic book potential. Could The Aerator end up as Steam-Man’s number one villain? Is he a ten? Does being a ten make him a one?! Tune in and find out. Then we have an awesome chat with the incomparable letterer, adventurer, and activist, Kuen Tang. She’s been everywhere and done everything, and we talk about it all. Listen to the interview, then head on over to her site – kuentang.com – and check out her past and future works.

Also! Don’t cross the creams, the challenges of Witchblade hair and Liefeld feet, nature’s barreled water, and spooky Russian babies.

Panel of the Week – Batsuits, Blind Chefs and Bending Over Backwards

batmanEvery Wednesday, GeekParty highlights the week’s best comic book panels. Last week, Little Marvel ruled the roost. This week, it’s all about radioactive pigs.

With over Convergence, Secret Wars in high gear, and a new Batman, my pull list is more interesting than ever. It’s the greatest thing that’s happened to my wallet, but it’s definitely been fun for me.
