Geek Goods

As mentioned previously, I had a good time in Vic, and was able to purchase some items that make my Nerd heart feel good. These are somewhat geeky items, but trust me - all of them are awesome in their own way.

  • 300 - By Frank Miller - Awesome movie, and you realize that the book is just as great because the movie was made scene for scene and word for word from the graphic novel. The art is pure Frank and does not disappoint.
  • Powers: Who Killed Retro Girl? - By Brian Micheal Bendis - Excellent graphic novel, and makes me want to pick up all the others in the series. Isn't that what a good novel is supposed to do? Make you want to read more?
  • The Government Manual for New Superheros - By Matthew Brozik - Handy for when I don my tights and cape to dispense Justice in the River City. So far so good on this one. It's full of comic nerd in-jokes and one liners.
  • Casino Royale - Starring Daniel Craig - Hell yeah, bought it the moment it hit the shelves. This movie rocked my socks and made me want to be a spy all over again. I know the Sidekick is going to get it, but I wanted to beat him to the punch.
That's pretty much it.
Not like I went hog-wild or anything. The great thing is having a 40% discount at the Comic-Book Store. Problem is, when I get in there, I tend to draw a blank as to what I came for and what I wanted to get. The same thing happens in Future Shop.

At least I got some good reading material and yet another awesome movie to add to the collection. It'll be a while before I get to Nerd-out like that again.


Song on my mind - "Come Back" By Pearl Jam
Reading - "Government Manual for New Superheros" By Matthew Brozik


  1. To be fair, I have a co-author, Jacob Sager Weinstein... and we're both glad you like our book, The Government Manual for New Superheroes. (Also available now: The Government Manual for New Wizards... and coming soon: The Government Manual for New Pirates! Arr.

  2. I just finished reading The Government Manual for Superheros. Great Stuff! I'll be sure to pick up the other books.

    Please tell your co-author that I wasn't overlooking his part in your efforts, I was just trying to keep the post short and neat.

    Thanks for checking out my blog!
